Created by Black Cursive
Launch Project
Civil Service New York City

How I Started

With close to 1.5 million views, the Civil Service List on the NYC Open Data portal is one of the most frequently accessed datasets. This site provides access to the most relevant data about candidates currently active on the civil service list while offering an intuitive and user-friendly experience.

How I Built This

The project was built with Python, Django web framework, Pandas and SQLite.
