The following is a guest blog post by Matt Condon about his summer as a member of the class of 2014 hackNY fellows. The original article can be found at Matt’s blog. Want to become a hackNY fellow this summer? Checkout apply.hackny.org.

The presentation was under 3 minutes. Reading this blog post will probably take longer. I’m sorry I got your hopes up.

At Magnetic I built SmartTags with Patrick. If you want to learn more about what Magnetic does, check out this blog post!

We also worked on some data science related tasks where we found the most popular categories that Magnetic served ads for.

This blog also happened. I went from about 200 words at the beginning of the summer to almost 40,000. In single-spaced, 12pt Helvetica, that’s 80 pages.

I released FiveStar in late May. This happened during my daily blogging phase, so there’s a wealth of talk about it:
