Django Jail Hack

  • Aug 14, 2013 · 6:30 PM

In cahoots with FreeGeek Chicago

A workshop focusing on fundamental data journalism and web development skills using the Supreme Chi-Town Coding Crew's Cook County Jail API—a Django-based web API that provides data about inmates in Cook County Jail by scraping for the Sheriff's Inmate Locator.

All skill levels welcome

Mini-projects include:

• drawing the jail's floorplan

• analysing data

• improving the scraper

• project architecture & documentation

• front end data viz and user experience

• mining the data for leads.
