Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:00:00 EDT Student Groups Encourage Data Access The ubiquity of smartphones has made the field of mobile web applications one of huge growth and interest. For NYU’s student developers, however, writing code is not always the most challenging part; it is getting access to the large amount of data that a successful app requires.
