At last night's NYC BigApps3.0 awards ceremony, Mayor Michael Bloomberg told the audience that he'd been a software developer -- once -- in college.
"New York City is home to the smartest, most creative people, the most talented engineers and a budding technology community," the Mayor said.
This year's ceremony had 96 entries, ranging from Phoundit, a lost and found service, to Gwumpy, a search for restaurants by cuisine, Health Department grade and violations, and the popular Scene Near Me, a listing of NYC movie locations.
The competition lets developers design apps using the city's open data sources, including nearly 750 raw data sets.
