Outrun the T: Preparing for the Unknown

Last Friday we, with our partner The Boston Calendar, challenged the MBTA to a road race. This was a ton of fun; it was a gorgeous day, and the race ended with a come-from-behind victory.
There’s plenty of discussion of the public-facing aspects of this event. I’d like to tell you a bit about the technical work that made this event possible (spoiler alert: it involves loosely coupled systems).
