The code I have now that doesn't work (I only know it's not working because the map changed - the script isn't reading the coordinates I'm trying to pass in):
var testData = {

console.log(traffic_data); = traffic_data;

Doing more with Young Coders
View YC
This was the easiest way I could think of to reply to all of you in under 140 characters. :)
My hope for 2015 is to take Young Coders beyond what we're doing with it already. It's great that we're reaching kids at Python conferences. But those kids are, by and large, the children of programmers and probably already have some exposure to what we're teaching them and access to the tools they need to succeed.
What I really want to do, though, is take the class out to underserved kids, kids who maybe wouldn't get the opportunity to be exposed to programming otherwise. I'm happy to arrange all the details - venues, signups, even my own travel to some extent (although I'll start small and work local). But teaching programming to underserved kids means giving them computers - not just the RPis and cards, but all the peripherals, and maybe even books, that they'd need to get set up at home and keep going on their own.
It's the costs for that equipment, of course, that's holding me back. I could apply for a PSF g

Playing around with the Sunlight Labs 'openstate' API
View redvblue_public
This script pulls from the Sunlight Labs "openstates" API
to get information about legislators at the state level,
do a count of their party affiliations,
and return that information as
1) a JSON object for visualizations
2) a table suitable for embed into an HTML page
Information about the specific API used can be found here:
