This has been a very interesting week in Chennai - between the confusion that the demonetization move brought with it and the health of our Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, the city has been filled with a lot of uncertainty and confusion. Lots to watch out for on the news in the days to come.
While the app is being designed and structured, I got to parse the data into chunks that make it suitable for the app to access - and here's the cool part - the data is going to sit on our own server on the app, rather than feed into the server of an external database. This week, I added 70 consular establishments to the map and 14 new services to the map in the legal and medical aid provision domain (verified, across the world). I also spoke to 8 women’s colleges across India on the tool to arrange for talks / workshops for women in the next semester (February 2017) following all exams. These 8 colleges are across India and the administrative staff have been very receptive and have agreed to let us hold workshops on using the map / app and to help women understand how the law works . In addition, I got to speak with 27 corporate establishments (inclusive of three different branches of the same office in different cities), to hold workshops on using the map / app and to help women understand how the law works.
