What types of projects?

Many of our projects are geared towards improving life at Harvard, but any technical project is welcome. Ideas can be at any stage of completion (from a buggy landing page to multi-platform software backed by some crazy Hadoop cluster). Many but not all of our projects come straight out of CS50, but we aim to teach everyone a lot no matter what your skill level.
