What happens when 100,000 people in a major American city are about to have their water shut off because they can’t afford it? Rubyists step in! This talk discusses what it’s like to build a data-driven social service agency—more specifically, the Ruby infrastructure underpinning The Human Utility, a social service agency using open data, private utility data, data science, machine learning, and crowdfunding to ensure water is affordable for everyone.
