Updated the documentation for how to get up and running. Using DjangoRest with a Postgres database.

Started to create tickets for the two projects.

Technical decision was made to keep the front end independent of the back end.

Update #14

There have been lots of starts and stops to this project over time. So, reframing this as the Data Hub project with Affordable Housing as the first implementation of the Data Hub.

Here is a link to some new specification documentation. I can easily fill out the back-end service specifications and add waffle tickets to coordinate. We will want to add a front-end developer to help define the technology direction of the front end.

I will also move forward with setting up an AWS account and explore the free tier.

Update #13

Created interactive wireframes: and visual design: for the basic format of the website. Feedback is welcome!

Update #12

Here are some highlights of what we accomplished tonight:

We decided on a target audience we're going to focus on as the users for the firs draft of the site — Councilpeople of Durham.

We cleaned up the waffle board, and created several new waffle tickets.

We created a wiki page for running the site locally on OSX. We'll continue to build out documentation using the wiki.

We resolved 1 UI ticket re: the placeholder mobile header "Business Casual" with our "Affordable Housing" header.

We started work on determining how to integrate the pyzillow client for the Zillow api to gather data.

  • Sarah had a great question - "What story do we want to tell?"
