Are you a web developer with Python and Geo chops, looking for a fun side project? Even better, are you also a resident of Greater Boston, interested in city planning and civic engagement? Do you know someone who is?
If so, let us know. The Open Planning Project is partnering with the Somerville Community Corporation to develop an interactive web app to better engage citizens in the planning process around the Green Line extension project. The app would be 100% open source, and would build off of some of the core tools we’ve been developing and using here at TOPP Labs and OpenGeo (including Django, OpenLayers, GeoServer, PostGIS, and components of Community Almanac & FixCity).
SCC is seeking a talented, civic-minded volunteer developer to make the project happen. Here’s the full job description (short link: http://bit.ly/1PkM17). The developer will work very closely with SCC from start to finish, with guidance from TOPP’s lead developers. Please pass it on!
