  • Project mention: Ask HN: Looking for a project to volunteer on? (January 2024) | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-04

    - https://github.com/freelawproject/bigcases2/

    Languages: Python, Django, JavaScript, Browser extensions

    Free Law Project is a small non-profit that uses technology to make the legal sector better. We operate at a big scale (about 300M items in our DB and a lot of traffic), and need help scaling, operating, expanding, fixing, modernizing, and maintaining our stack.

    One high priority project is adding a CDN to our site due to the crush we just got on the latest Epstein docs:

    Background: https://www.axios.com/2024/01/04/epstein-document-crash-docu...

    Issue: https://github.com/freelawproject/courtlistener/issues/917

    If you have experience in rolling out a CDN, that's great.

    If not, we also have a volunteer backlog where we are always looking for help with our website, browser extensions, etc: https://github.com/orgs/freelawproject/projects/31/views/1

    At this point, if you are a Python/Django/Browser extension dev, we could probably use your help!
