Our friend @kurtontech wrote a great article about #Uber's unprecedented growth over the past few years. "Uber is in fair running as the best product of the decade. It has enabled millions of people across the world to make money, give up owning a car, and has literally changed city traffic patterns. Uber's level of impact, naturally, goes hand in hand with some of the fastest growth growth in startup history. So how has Uber managed it's astronomically rapid growth?" http://bit.ly/1Or4Z9i

#MakeSchool student Adrian built a to-do list app inspired by priority queue data structure – and it's been upvoted 240 times on #ProductHunt! Check it out. "I'm Adrian, the maker of #Queue. I built Queue for myself to "sort out my life" and just to have fun building apps.
