Improve the Code

The MyGov.NYC APP uses a unique combination of software. It’s data management backend is a collection of AirTables (currently 3 and growing) that hold different datasets but all share one feature: a table that matches organziation names with a UID for the organization. That organization/UID pairing is the same in all the AirTables.

AirTables offer a native API, so we built an app that imports all the data from the AirTables and then joins that data together using the shared UIDs. This app uses a MySQL database and a Laravel application framework.

The app is available on Github. If you’re interested in working on it let us know. If you can think of ways to improve the app, please post an issue.
