The goal of the Center for Innovation and Research in Computing (CIRC) is to enhance student learning in the School of Computing by engaging students in real-world development projects. By paying students to work on these projects, CIRC will provide students with the opportunity to fund their education through on-campus, computing-related work (similar in nature to computing internships).
CIRC works with various industry and community partners as well as with Southern Adventist University on programming projects of various sizes. A wide range of technologies are used for development, including Android, iOS, PHP, C#.NET, and C++. Typically, CIRC works on specialized projects that don't fit neatly inside one of the many generalized software solutions that are available on the market today.
Here are a few of the clients that CIRC has worked with in the past:
ShareSynch is an iPad and iPhone application that lets users present and edit ShareHim presentations. In ShareSynch, users can download sermon materials, dynamically generate PDF documents of presentations, edit speaker notes in rich text, and swap the slide or speaker note language independently of one another. Developed using: Cocoa Touch, Objective-C, SQLite.
The Devoted app was created for the Pacific Press Publishing Association and gives users the opportunity to easily read and share the Devoted Daily Devotional, which is also available online at the following link: Devoted Daily Devotional. Developed using: Android, Java, Cocoa Touch, Objective-C, SQLite.
The Quality Enhancement Plan website was built for the School of Physical Education, Health, and Wellness at Southern Adventist University. The site helps students and employees track their physical activity and make plans to improve their own physical health over time. Developed using: C#.NET, jQuery, MS SQL.
