With certain politicians, political parties, and media groups talking of "fake refugee" crime surges  and the need for HK to build internment camps and pull out of the convention against torture we need a rational, evidence based debate on this issue. Unfortunately Hong Kong is a data vacuum, and the supposed crime statistics parroted don't seem to be publicly available. Using AccessInfo (FOI) requests  we've managed to gather a lot of inconsistent data from the Hong Kong police at the District and Region level. This project needs help to fill in some of the gaps in this data, as well as help in organising, presenting and disseminating it for public consumption. We then need help presenting and visualising this data in a form that can easily produce infographics broken down more granularly by district, crime, etc. Which will be a useful tool in assisting rational, evidence based response to this issue in Hong Kong.
Yiming L Analysing Trump's Tweets
Team members: Luna Zhao (LZ), Yuqiong Li (LL) and Yiming Li (EL)
Data set: Trump Twitter Archive (http://www.trumptwitterarchive.com/about)
Data cleaning (EL), some basic data formatting and summary (EL) as well as data visualisation (word clouds -- LL; interactive graphs -- LZ) is conducted to analyse Donald and Ivanka Trump's tweets.
Future work may include integrating more data (e.g. Trump's speeches), further data visualisation, sentiment analysis and creating a "Trump-bot".
The presentation slides could be downloaded via: http://web.hku.hk/~liym1018/docs/ttweets.pdf
List of societies in Hong Kong
The HK Police stores a list of all registered societies (38,000+) of Hong Kong, but in PDF format with watermarks. Transforming all these data in to a SQL database can help analyse and visualize all the findings (eg. Distribution of Chinese-related societies, do the societies share the same address, etc).
Horace T Future Work:
Integrated with other datasets such that existing SQL database have more dimensions.

What is Development Sprint ?
Development Sprint is a activity (usually 1 to few days) of intensive learning and development on an open source project of your choice, in a team environment. It's a time to come together with colleagues, old and new, to share what you've learned and apply it to an open source project.

How to Write a Popular Python Library by Accident
TALK DESCRIPTION: A number of Python libraries that we've  written have become widely used. But they all started as personal  projects: tools or utilities that we needed ourselves. In this technical  talk we visit a number of case studies, both libraries of our own and  of others. Libraries that have gone on to be used in organizations and  projects such as Microsoft, Mozilla, Yelp, LinkedIn, SurveyMonkey, NASA,  USGS, OpenStack, and others.
Speakers: Audrey & Daniel Roy Greenfeld
Mr & Mrs Greenfeld are keynote speakers of PyCon Singapore 2016  from California, USA. They will visit Hong Kong after PyCon SG 2016.
Daniel Roy Greenfeld is co-author of the Two Scoops of Django series,  core developer of Cookiecutter, and husband of Audrey Roy Greenfeld. He  leads a number of open source projects, including Django Packages,  cookiecutter-django, and more. He teaches Django at Two Scoops Academy  and is a principal at Cartwheel Web. When he’s not working, he enjoys  reading, writing, flying drones, photography, and capoeira.
