      It is a project that I led to show an interesting scenario using the Office 365 APIs. At its core, Art Curator is an attachment-first view of your mailbox.

      I designed the concept and led the v-team that built out these samples. It was written for the web (using Angular) and Windows Phone by me, and written for Android and iOS by two of my teammates.

      It was my team's first "showcase" sample, where we showed not only the "how", but also the "why".

      The back-end queries the Uber API for surge prices in a specific city then stores them in a MongoDB database, as well as exposes an API for the front-end to use to access the data

      The front-end allows users to specify a day, ride type, and city to display historical data showing the average surge price over the course of the day
