My idea is to design and build a prototype for a browser extension for court operators (court staff/employees) to use for reporting and sharing their projects.
One of the main challenges I foresee is having a secure repository to collect the information and a platform for hosting the information. As the goal for the hackathon is a prototype, likely using InVision App, I can tackle that question later. For now, I think generating an excel/google sheet to collect and pull information from will be sufficient to demonstrate functionality.
There are some hard limits to deploying a tool like this, some of which would require serious strategic thinking on topics like: court-rules and standards related to data security and how to navigate judicial branch permissions on private court-networks. I'm thinking this prototype can begin that conversation, so I'm leaving those considerations on the horizon.
I would like to carry this work beyond the hackathon and I think this event is a great jump start to that. I have a lot of uses in mind for this "extension" project.
My expertise: project management, legal design, solution building, tech-user (I authored a few games using a tool designed by real programmers), and familiarity with the intended user population (my fellowship involves surveying court-based services/programs/projects for the self-represented.
Intended Users: court staff/employee, access to justice project managers/funders/collaborators/operators
Primary Functions (achievable for the hackathon)
Secondary Functions (aspirational for future development)
