Whether it’s physical, social, political, economic, or otherwise ours is a city of legacy infrastructures. To thrive in the 21st century, Philadelphia must adapt and evolve. We believe that the best solutions are collaborative and sustainable.

Join us October 16-18 for an Unconference & Hackathon as part of Young Involved Philly's State of Young Philadelphia 2016.

Spencer Snygg Update #13

This week, we found a lead that may end up in getting us voter and politician districts, which we can integrate into our site so that voters can type in their address and get linked to politicians in their voting area, which is SWEEET!

We also got a new user to help us change our Discourse to fit our needs.

Good stuff.

Dawn McDougall Update #16

Here's a buggy input box. I changed the Read me because I thought it had't been updated since April 2014. But maybe it had! Just not touched as a project update.

Added the top items on the to-do list and cleared a couple of done items or items that I moved up.

Spencer Snygg Update #12

We still need connections to Google's Civic API or other Open Civic Data stuff, but we are doing and end run around that and going straight with data from the board of elections - I think. We are getting sooooooo close to our alpha launch. A lot of great work done so far. A lot of great work yet to be done. Come be a part of the fun.
