Kent Brewster, a dev from SoCal will do a live Google Hangout OnAir with Hacks/Hackers Miami about his Profiling Atherton project. Kent used data analysis to determine that town police were ticketing Hispanics and non-Atherton residents far more than non-Hispanics and Atherton residents. After he released his findings, the police stopped providing police blotter updates. Kent's project was simple yet impactful, and may be easily replicated using local data.
Join us for Miami's weekly Open Hack inside The LAB Miami co-working space in Wynwood. This is a chance to work on your projects and meet with folks from the Ruby Meetup, Miami's Code for America brigade, and others. It's also a good time to pitch in your journo skills by editing and writing MiamiWiki.org.
ALSO, if you're working on CodeAcademy or other online programming courses, this would be a good time and place to work. There will be lots of people around who can help you with that pesky FizzBuzz problem.
