A Kickstarter to Hold Stingy Landlords Accountable For Withholding Heat

Village Voice

Heat Seek started as a school project for Jeffries, who was enrolled in a 12-week Ruby programming course at the Flatiron School at the time. Tristan Siegel, a classmate of Jeffries' and the son of a social worker, recognized the technology could be used to help New Yorkers keep heat logs. Together, they assembled a team around the project and entered it in New York's Big Apps competition where, in July, it was one of 23 projects singled out to receive continued funding, promotion and mentorship.
