NYU ISS Adventures into Test Kitchen

Since Peter was kind of enough to speak at for NYU's ISS club (Information Systems Society) in September, we decided to return the favor by visiting the BugLabs office! (Starting from closest: Angad, Ajay, Alicia, Kabir, Anirrudha) Alicia first sat us down and debriefed us on the latest goings-on at BugLabs.
