Testament

March 28th, 2011  |  Published in Code

Testament is a Django-based prison book project management application originally written by Andrew Badr. It lets volunteers track sent and returned packages and inmate requests in the hopes of minimizing delays for inmates and helping the book projects evaluate their services for themselves and funders.  It is used by the Midwest Pages to Prisoners Project and other prison book projects.  I am a contributor to this application’s code and migrated from a pencil and paper on index card database to Testament while coordinating the Midwest Pages to Prisoners Project.
