code for boston
The last few weeks we’ve been heads down on DocumentCloud work, so no new user-facing features this past week. Want to work on transparency tools of your own? Join us Tuesday nights in Cambridge as we work on our Code for Boston project, GovLens.
Ever notice a typo in an Assignments question? Get some feedback from folks helping you crowdsource analysis and wish you could incorporate it right away? You finally can: Assignment questions are now fully editable, with lots of backups in place.
On December 17, MuckRock, Code for Boston, and Hacks/Hackers are putting together a demo night to highlight a number of open source projects, including MuckRock’s newest government transparency tool, GovLens. Registration is free!
Last week the MuckRock team took a short week to celebrate Thanksgiving, so there are no new features. This week, we’ll be back at it, including at our weekly volunteer night Tuesday evening.
A bug in some of the code used to make selected Assignment submissions public broke some editing functions; that’s now fixed. More importantly, you can join us for an evening of food, beverages, and open data demos on Dec. 17 at Code for Boston Demo Night, where we’ll be unveiling our new project.
