Abstract: Students in a Web-programming course utilize a public dataset to power a practical mobile Web-application for transit system users. In the course of building their applications, students learn how public data is represented, how to manipulate that representation, how to interact with public API’s to retrieve data in real time, how to present information in a format consumable by mobile devices, including clickable lists and interactive maps.
