Kristen W General Civic Tech Announcements
(I tried to paste a picture but it didn't work on mobile -H)
The Boston Data Portal is composed to two parts: the Data Library, which, like a open data portal, is oriented  towards data scientists and others who want access to raw data that  they will then analyze, visualize, and explore on their own; and  BostonMap, an easy-to-use mapping platform where visitors can explore  the neighborhoods of Boston from their computer, including  visualizations of data from various sources as well as access to other  tools, like Google Street View.
The Civic Tech Fellows supplement Microsoft’s engagement with  community groups, the tech sector, and government officials in the  greater Boston area to facilitate connections between Microsoft  technology and civic society. Microsoft’s Boston-based Technology &  Civic Engagement team, located in Kendall Square in Cambridge, will hire one full-time (40 hour/week) Fellow for Summer 2016, and up to three part-time (10 hour/week) Fellows for the academic year starting in Fall  2016.
