We are developing some really great technology at RunSignUp. So we are starting a separate company to bring some of the technology to market. I'll be posting more about this later, but this is worth talking about now as it is in production and we have a number of people who have stumbled upon it and are using it.
One of the things we developed was aZip Code API (some people spell it Zipcode API). We developed this API to provide a list of Zip Codes within a certain Radius. We use this for the Running Club/Store widget for providing a list of races within a certain distance of a store or club. We are also going to be updating our UI so runners can enter their zip code and we will fill in the City and State automatically.
We already have a number of developers on the web who have found it. For example, a major retailer’s web site uses it to see how far you are from the nearest stores.
We love developing technology and see people using it. Instead of keeping it bottled up inside RunSignUp, we figure this is a good outlet! If you click around a bit on the links above you can figure out the rest of the story on the company we are creating...
