Code for [My Town]
Latest Project Activity
There have been lots of starts and stops to this project over time. So, reframing this as the Data Hub project with Affordable Housing as the first implementation of the Data Hub.
Here is a link to some new specification documentation. I can easily fill out the back-end service specifications and add waffle tickets to coordinate. We will want to add a front-end developer to help define the technology direction of the front end.
I will also move forward with setting up an AWS account and explore the free tier.
At the 12/13 meeting, Basia worked on converting profile change recommendations into Github issues. Jeremy, Alex, Nicole and Lauren discussed immediate next steps for the project. Lauren, Basia and newcomer Vallyre went over the profile design change recommendations.
Immediate next steps (thanks Nicole!):
|Email Chip (DPS) and Lisa (Charter School Collaborative) to give update; Provide list of schools who have not participated||Nicole|
|Add in teacher satisfaction links||Nicole|
|Assess state of ancillary pages (i.e. not profile pages) to determine what needs to be changed||All|
|Remove the “alpha”|
|Work on inputting updates to profile page from usability testing||Basia, Lauren|
|Work on revised profile page design mockups||Vallyre, Lauren|
|Identify marketing opportunities||All|
|Fix the map feature on the updated profile pages||Victor|
|Look into Spanish translation options||Alex|
|Work on accessibility assessment||Lauren|
|Remove 'Sample DPS school' from school names in the updated profile pages|
|QA Testing on mobile||All|
Bendte, Basia, and Kesley, have gone through the screen capture and various people's notes from usability testing sessions on the school profile page, and we have combined them into a recommendations document.
Kesley will start turning those bullet points into GitHub issues. Bendte and Basia will help as needed, and anyone else is welcome to jump in. So hopefully we can start getting some of this stuff done.
Preteek, Dane, Kristen, Toughee worked on onboarding - setting up their dev envirments.
Rebranded most of the main website (Toughee). Fixed the data importing script (Preteek & Dane).
Updated Demo with latest data dump.
After comparing openoakland/adopt-a-drain vs sfbrigade/adopt-a-drain ( see diff: http://pastebin.com/Zxy7zgPm ) we made the decision to base our work on the San Francisco project.
Our new repository: https://github.com/codefordurham/adopt-a-drain/
I am now continuing work on making the app fully customizable, so that anybody can fork our project and customize it for their specific location without touching the main source files.
We are a NC Datapalooza finalist after a successful pitch at All Things Open!
-Wake County data is displaying the same as Durham's on the live website -Risk factor data for Wake is in the database -Icons are added to the templates in GitHub and will be deployed once there's logic to only display icons if risk factor data exists -Discovered risk factor data can be connected to existing violations so counties that do not currently track risk factors can still display them
