Here’s how an app, Acapella, connected with millions of users in just weeks: “Acapella was born because of feedback from PicPlayPost users who were trying to create a cappella videos with the app. ‘They kept asking us how to create it. They were doing it with PicPlayPost but found it cumbersome, because it doesn’t really synchronize,’ says Tu. The founders decided that rather than spend time answering questions, they would just build an app.”

A dorm-room startup is trying to help the visually impaired navigate better: “The next step was to ensure that the product actually worked 100% of the time. After all, the consequences of a mis-recognition could be dire. For example, what if a sight impaired person took a few prescription pills thinking that they were Advil? We knew we had work to do.”

def print_hi(name)
  puts "Hi, #{name}"
end
print_hi('Tom')
#=> prints 'Hi, Tom' to STDOUT.
