Good Luck With That: Tag Teaming Civic Data

Good Luck With That: Tag Teaming Civic Data

Speakers: Liz Rush, Hsing-Hui Hsu

In this end-to-end discussion about the challenges with civic data, from no-documentation & incomplete government code to figuring out how to scale data-driven SOA, we'll show you how two Ruby newbies managed to create an awesomely useful parking app in just four weeks. For those new to coding, or experienced devs looking to work with civic data, we'll show you our roadmap as well as what we learned pairing as two junior developers just starting out in the big bad world of programming.
