CNY technologists and designers collaborated to create new apps and technologies to aid their communities.

Jaws dropped around the room when 14-year-old Jack Cook presented what he had taken fewer than 24 hours to create. 

Cook, a freshman at the Bronx High School of Science, had, alone, created a virtual tool to make website programmers aware of errors that are normally nearly impossible to see and resolve.

He was presenting his program, called Fetch Errors, at Hack Upstate, one of the largest gatherings of programmers and techies outside of New York City.
