    Justin's Challenges of the Night!

    Challenge #1 Agency Performance Data (new data)

    Do something interesting with this data beyond this http://track.dc.gov/


    Challenge #2 Community Garden Data (poorly used)

    Build an app that allows people to easily find information about community gardens in DC. You need to merge data sources together and build a simple front end.
