NYC BigApps Meetup and DevCamp

Last week the first NYC BigApps meetup was held at our office and later this month on November 21st we’ll also serve as the venue for the NYC BigApps DevCamp (please RSVP).

The meetup last week was a good opportunity for app developers to learn more about the process and have a chance to talk to the people facilitating the contest. Brandon Kessler from ChallengePost led the meetup and helped to better explain the contest. Peter Robinson from NYC EDC was there to help explain the objectives and background of BigApps. Sam Litt and Murugan Kanpa from the NYC Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT) were there to help answer a number of questions and field a lot of feedback about city data and NYC DataMine. Lou Klepner helped live-stream the meetup and the video is now available on Vimeo:
