While working as a full-time database engineer in Pennsylvania, Mark Novak spent his nights and weekends teaching himself mobile app development for iOS. Novak, a Rutgers alumnus, with a degree in computer science, developed RU Maps and founded Smart’s Apps LLC. He was inspired to build RU Maps after witnessing far too many new students trying to painfully navigate the various University campuses and buses.
Over the summer, my startup, Hublished, was featured twice in TechCrunch, once in VentureBeat and about a half-dozen other times in tech and startup publications.

It is the bane of YouTube addicts around the world.
Salman Khan disrupted the world of education 10 years ago when he began remotely tutoring his cousins in math and science, and recording his lessons to be posted on YouTube.

The fifth annual Rutgers hackathon will consist of student computer programmers working without sleep or pause for a full 24 hours while they collaborate on creating new applications.
Most computer scientists have come to grips with the fact that a disturbing percentage of their existence will be spent at a desk staring at a screen. Any respite from this life sentence is met with deep gratitude, which is typically the response a new app called “Mote” receives within the development community.
Ever wanted to chuck an iPhone higher in the air than anyone’s chucked an iPhone before? Well, fortunately — or perhaps unfortunately — there’s an app for that, and it’s named for exactly what it does: Phonesmash.
Student developers at Rutgers have a place on Busch campus to call home, and it is known as “the Cave.” Except this cave has electricity, tables, chairs and most importantly, computers. “The greatest environment for really dedicated engineers is ‘the Cave,’” said Billy Lynch, president of the Undergraduate Student Alliance for Computer Science, in reference to Hill Center Room 252.
