Measures of Justice - Data Fellow, Full-Time, 2-Year Contract - Clearwater/St. Petersburg, FL; Dade City/New Port Richey, FL

At Measures for Justice (MFJ) our mission is to use data to transform how we measure, understand, and reform the criminal justice system in America. We collect, clean, code, standardize, and analyze data from criminal justice agencies to provide consistent, comparable, objective, and public performance measures across the whole criminal justice system, from arrest to post-conviction, on a county-by-county basis (see our Data Portal at https://measuresforjustice.org/portal/).

In 2017, MFJ educated the Florida legislature about how data transparency in criminal justice could be improved in that state. As a result, the state passed into law (Florida Statutes 900.05) a bill that mandates court clerks, state attorneys, jail administrators, public defenders, and the Department of Corrections to report data to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) on a monthly basis. MFJ is supporting the implementation of the new legislation through a pilot in the 6th Judicial Circuit (Pasco and Pinellas counties) that will embed at least one Data Fellow within the Clerk of Courts Office of each county.

The Three Key Dimensions of Front-End Frameworks, by Evan You, Vue.js Creator

Evan You, Vue.js framework's creator, recently talked at JS Conf Asia 2019 about seeking the balance in framework design. Frameworks should be distinguished on three design tradeoffs: scope, render mechanism, and state mechanism, rather than on popularity-based metrics. Framework are best evaluated on a continuous tradeoff axis instead of with a binary (good vs. bad) determination.
