  • Tackling STEM at the Denver Broncos Colorado All-Stars Hackathon
















    As a local company headquartered in Denver, MapQuest strives to be involved with the tech industry as much as possible. We also strongly believe in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education amongst the up and coming developer generation.

    So when we heard about the Denver Broncos Tackle STEM Colorado All-Stars Hackathon, put on in partnership by our friends at SendGrid & FullContact, we knew we had to be involved! We are ecstatic to be a guest technology partner at the event, taking place at the Mile High Stadium on November 18-20, 2016.

    During the 36-hour hackathon, we will be opening up our APIs and SDKs for participating students and technology whizzes. MapQuest's top developers and thought leaders will be on-hand, answering questions and helping make projects rock.

    We will also be giving away loads of cool swag – t-shirts, stickers and coffee, oh my! And, we're ponying up best-selling, Wi-Fi camera drones for each member of the top team using our products.

    If you are a university student or tech enthusiast that would love to get involved with this hackathon, head over to our Denver Broncos Hackathon page. From there, you can study up on our APIs and SDKs, sign up for a free account and/or register for the event.

    We hope to see you all there!

  • Temporary Outage: Data Manager API on 11/08

    As part of MapQuest's continuing effort to improve our products and services, we will be updating the backend infrastructure of our Data Manager API during the previously scheduled November 8, 2016, maintenance window. Thus, the Data Manager API will be unavailable for a period of time.

    In order to keep your tables in sync with the Search API and move all data, the process is expected to take 8 hours. In order to best accommodate, the extended maintenance window on the Data Manager API will begin at 10 pm EST on November 7, 2016 and conclude at 6 am EST on November 8, 2016.

    The Search API will remain usable during this period with data upload to Data Manager before the change. However, data from unfinished uploads prior to the scheduled update will not be moved to the new backend.
