1st Place - Bobstreet
Daniel Padawer, Chris Williams, and Benjamin Xie.
You need a book from Bobst. You search for it on Bobcat. You know it's in Bobst but you have no idea where it is in the library! Bobstreet is a webapp that takes the title of the book you're looking for and tells you which floor it's on along with the map of that floor. Finding a book in Bobst has never been easier.
2nd Place - NYU Safe Walk
Given any two points in the general NYU area, displays the route and all
reported crimes logged by public safety in the path, along with time and date
of incident, and incident details.
3rd Place - NYU Clubs
NYU Clubs is a template app for other clubs to use for their own apps. It has been designed so clubs can very easily go in and change things for their own club without having to know any code at all.
Honorable Mention - CAS Course Evaluations Visualization
Earl Co and Vietnhi Phuvan.
The idea is to visualize the data obtained from the CAS Course Evaluation Guide located at http://www.nyu.edu/cas/ceg. We were able to parse through the entire website and create a text file of every single CAS course evaluation for every semester from 2000 to 2013. We can then take the data from the 27,000 course evaluations and graphically represent them using PyGal, creating various graphs such as the Most (and Least) Recommended Course, Highest (and Lowest) Rated Professor, Instructor Performance Over Time, etc.
Venkatesh Thallam and Aditya raju Vysaraju.
NYU is big and it is difficult to find our class mates a.k.a coursemates until the classes start. Even when in session, student interaction in some classes is rare. We made a web application that allows students to create a profile with their course schedules. Users can search student names to see their class schedules or search courses to find classmates. In the upcoming iterations, we plan to create chat groups and enable better interaction between students.

Users can learn where NYU Famous Alumni lived, worked, and studied while attending NYU. Key functions include: a quick search tool, easy photo upload and profile pages where visitors can read bios of alumni and 'like' their favorite famous alumni
Are you tired of the tedious process of logging into your NYU account and hunting down your course schedule?
