HOW WE CREATED WORKFORCE DATA PORTAL
Workforce Data Portal was created in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development and several City agencies. Our partners at Blenderbox provided user experience, design, and development services.

 

TECHNOLOGY POWERING WORKFORCE DATA PORTAL
Workforce Data Portal is developed on Django, a python-based open-source platform, with a frontend supported by the React JavaScript library. The application is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The data visualizations are supported by Highcharts, a charting library for data visualizations and maps.
