This MERN-stack monster started as a coding boot camp final project and continues to evolve. Our plan is to build a public accountability database that makes a trove of municipal data searchable in meaningful ways. The point is to increase transparency and provide context for otherwise abstract information.
In boot camp, I teamed with KKopp, who has impressive React skills and a background in accounting. We started with campaign finance data from the 2019 mayoral election and created a searchable Mongo database with a React front end. A good start. More to come.
