This is an ideal opportunity for a hobbyist or student to develop and validate their skills!

Windsor Hackforge requires a temporary resource to help with the implementation of a 2SLGBTQ+ historical walking tour for Windsor using Pytheas, an open-source guided tour application developed by Parallel 42 Systems. The tour application is written in JavaScript, leveraging the React.js framework.

Please send applications to info@hackf.org by Friday, May 12th at 5pm

The work should take 16-24 hours to complete, and involves the following high level steps;

  • Collect required information from volunteer partners
  • Set up a local development environment
  • Encode geoJSON and JSON files with required information
  • Develop a colour scheme in collaboration with volunteer partners
  • Modify application source code to implement colour scheme
  • Add required images to source folder for each point of interest on the tour
  • Test application locally and make required fixes
  • Implement application in hosting environment for public use
  • Minor code changes as required and applicable

A software development skill set will be critical to the success of this project, but deep experience is not needed as there should be no significant code changes required. Familiarity with web development, JavaScript and React.js will be significant assets.

Compensation for this position is set at $30/hour.
