Build the real debt clock based on sound math and accurate numbers.

The national debt is a staggeringly large number that represents the money we have spent on our country but not paid in taxes. Regardless of personal opinion on how the money was spent, it has been spent, we can't return our roads nor our schools, as citizens our only real option is to pay the debt back through taxes.

Thats where things get interesting, according to the debt clock every family and citizen owe the same amount. A two year old girl who has never paid income tax, or a college graduate who made a few thousand dollars for the first time owes hundreds of thousands of dollars of the national debt? How can that be?

This project aims to uncover the actual number each and every one of us owes...

  • Needs designers, developers, and data analyst.
  • Gather income and corporate tax data back to 1979.
  • Assemble pure JS / CSS / HTML solution for distribution.

This project has already been started and is a continuation of an earlier informal lead up to JS Village. This will be a public domain MIT license project posted to Git Hub.

Design And Usability

For year I've wanted to learn more about programming, a few weeks ago I met Alex one of the leaders of JS workshop (meetup where I met Caleb). At the meetup I learned about JS village, after which Alex told me it would be the perfect opportunity to learn more about frontend dev. With that being said I want to learn how to bring my designs to life and that's why we're talking :)

With a passion for product design and development, I focus on understanding and simplifying complex systems into simple and powerful products. Over my 15 year career, I’ve been fortunate to have exposure into disciplines ranging from software engineering, to team leadership, and product management that give me deep insights into both product life cycle as well as team dynamics. Bridging the gap between business and engineering disciplines comes naturally.

Sponsor A Project

There are some community projects that are done because people with talent decide to do them as a way of giving back to our community. The designers and developers on these projects are dedicating their talents, their time, and their creativity to help our community and those who live in it.

If you can contribute talent, we'd love to have you, otherwise these projects also need hosting, graphics, and many third party services that take the work these talented people are doing and give it life.
