  • Paul Foxworthy : Auprefs - My quest to rescue Australian democracy with 200 lines of Javascript

"Above the line" voting means your favourite political party can choose where preferences will be distributed, and you may not know (or like) their decisions. auprefs is an open source web application to visualise preference distribution in Australian elections, to better inform voters where their vote might go. Paul will talk about why he did it, and how it is implemented, including force-directed graphs and the amazing d3 Javascript graphing library.

Paul Foxworthy is an open source developer whose day job is working on Australianising and customising the Apache OFBiz ERP system. He is a committer to the OFBiz project and also currently serves as a director of Open Source Industry Australia. He is very pleased to have finally done something just possibly cool enough to give a LUV talk.
