The Bernie Map: Building tools for the Progressive Movement
Rapi joined the Coders for Sanders movement and built an open source map, a project that would later be used for other movements, including the Womens March and the Indivisible Guide. Rapi takes us through his journey of building that map, and using his skills to build other open source tools and create a network of developers to power the progressive movement.
