NYC BigApps 2017

We have created this group to help NYC BigApps 2017 participants find teammates, post projects, and collaborate with others to build solutions that address one of the BigApps challenges:

  • Transporation
  • Knowledge
  • Community Resiliency

We encourage you to also collaborate offline at the Ideation & Prototyping Workshops hosted at Civic Hall throughout the open submission phase of the competition. Workshops will offer training around the five major steps in product development: define, discover, design, test, and refine, including tools for user research and low-cost prototyping.

Please note that posting your project here does not qualify as an official submission to the competition. You still have to complete the submission form on the NYC BigApps 2017 website at bigapps.nyc/submission
