Sheridan Programmers Guild has recently received a grant from the state based on its initiative to create online learning games for late high school/early college science and math students.
Guild founder and owner Anne Gunn said the grant will be used to write a proposal to the Department of Education to develop online applications – called apps for short.
She said she expects to receive more information soon. In the meantime, her company continues its work developing mobile apps for Android and Apple's iOS phones – all from offices in Sheridan's business incubator on Double Eagle Drive.
Sheridan Programmers Guild is a registered trade name of OMP Engineering Inc. The company has been in the business incubator about three years.
The business owner talked about how she became involved in her high-tech line of work.
The company publishes phone apps, web apps and ebooks. Its owner says products are intended for users with niche professional, volunteer and recreational interests, ranging from firefighters and other first responders to nurses, educators, truck drivers and private pesticide applicators.
The company also takes a limited number of custom-programming work for businesses and organizations. Other services include conversion of publications into ebooks. The owner says her company specializes in the conversion of complex technical documents into digital format.
