Akshat Vasavada is a second-year Computer Science student at UC San Diego who was recently honored by San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) for the 2013 Careers in Energy Week competition - Project Cleancity. Project Cleancity is an app or game that encourages students to use energy efficiently by putting them in charge of a city with the objective
of keeping it functioning for as long as possible. The app forces players to think about energy usage and its consequences. Akshat is also the co-president of the Indian Student Association at UCSD.
Akshat interned at Workspot this past summer in 2013. During his internship, Akshat built a prototype "problem alert system" that reads incoming data about application usage, user location, device ID, and post an alert if specified conditions are not met. Additionally, Akshat designed and implemented framework to download reports in PDF format using Apache HTTP Client. And Akshat developed a program to email the PDF reports to specified customers using Apache Commons Email library.
We wish Akshat the best and all of us at Workspot are very proud of him!
