Hack For Change Challenge
Participated in the Hack For Change challenge in Western Mass. All the challenges where inspiring, I took part in the “Unlocking Prison Phone Data” because it seemed like the most difficult challenge. A blog post about it is here Overall it was a lot of scrapping and command line work done by Gyepi Sam, doing some amazing work in Perl and all command line. It was great to see. Pulling down files, processing the PDFs via OCR and pushing them into the Postgres db.
