Skip to content Miami Dade College students and Code for South Florida develop a participatory budgeting prototype

Theme: Public and Critical Infrastructure

Format: Dashboard

Miami Dade College (MDC), in partnership with Code for South Florida and the City of Miami, developed the Miami Budget project – an open source platform for citizen inclusion in the budget of the City of Miami. Students worked with faculty and industry professionals from Code for South Florida, Microsoft, and the City of Miami to create the participatory web application, which allows Miami residents to be informed contributors to their local budget.

The code repository, developed by students for this project, has nearly 100 branches. The fact that all branches are merged and closed shows evidence of student progress and completion of the project. Hundreds of separate commits were made by students, representing thousands of hours of work.
