The Philly Bail Fund seems like they're doing great things for the community so I wanted to make a project around that.
What it does
My project is a simulation that shows how arrests effect others in a person's sphere of influence
How I built it
I built my app with node.js and express then deployed it on Heroku
Challenges I ran into
My biggest struggle was figuring out how to get the data into my application
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I did not think I could do this in 1 day
What I learned
I learned how to scale down my ideas and come up with a project that is doable in one day. I wasn't sure if I would be able to do this. Most of my side projects take me weeks or months to complete.
What's next for Sphere of Incarceration
I hope this can be a great tool to show people how incarceration effects more than just 1 person
