1st Place


Dan Upshaw, Derek Schaefer, Wes Roberts

"A generic, mobile-ready queue app that allows people to get in line without having to stand in a physical line or crowd around a signup station. Our first implementation is an example of how a Karaoke bar might use the concept. We developed QueueBase using the Meteor framework to ensure everyone using the app could see updates in real-time. Also as a result, the app is written entirely in JavaScript, HTML, and a dash of CSS."

2nd Place


James Long

"NoMint is a prototype personal finance system that runs on the web. It focuses on rich visualizations for deep insight into your spending patterns, and an easy way to search and find transactions. The prototype supports importing transactions from mint.com."


3rd Place

I Need A Drink

Matt Kesler

"A mobile web app that lets you quickly find the closest place to get a drink."
