Meet the volunteers who improved our online archive and walked away with a free t-shirt
Will you be the next to join our open-source enterprise?
Last month, we launched a new version of this website with a simple call to action: File a patch and win a prize.
The bounty for a confirmed bug report or merged pull request to our open-source website was a t-shirt with our new logo.
The response was rapid. Today I’m proud to announce the winners, who added to the accomplishments of our open-source community, which now can claim contributions from more than 150 volunteers.
The winners are:
- Michael Keller, a Bloomberg reporter, who discovered a bug in our site’s footer.
- Stephen Suen, an MIT graduate on the job hunt, who fixed that bug.
- Nelson Pecora, a New York Magazine developer, who upgraded our code to comply with the Python programming language’s official style guide.
- Christine Zhang, an Open News Fellow at the Los Angeles Times, who created a favicon to display in the corner of browser tabs.
If you want to get involved, there’s plenty more to do as we continue our quest to master CAL-ACCESS, the jumbled, dirty and difficult database that track money in California politics.
