I built the initial prototype for Propylon’s SmartVote system. SmartVote is a voting system for legislative bodies (think a State House of Representatives). Legislators use desk-mounted Android tablets to do real-time voting, review the chamber schedule, look up bill information, and other activities. The prototype was built on Django, SocketIO, Redis, and the Dust.js templating system. Data was stored in Propylon’s proprietary append-only datastore.
