Knowledge Required: Experience with Python is required. Knowledge of Django, AngularJS, JSON, or Git is preferred.
Motivation: From working on the AgBiz Logic project, you'll gain software development experience in a small team startup environment. Technical experience will include backend web development, relational database administration, and RESTful API creation and management.
Description: The Applied Economics department is looking for Capstone Students to enhance AgBiz LogicTM (https://www.agbizlogic.com), an economic, financial, climate, and environmental online decision tool for agricultural producers. Five modules make up AgBiz Logic (ABL): AgBizClimate, AgBizProfit, AgBizLease, AgBizFinance and AgBizEnvironment.

This year's team of students will work to link seasonal weather data from the Northwest Climate Toolbox (https://climatetoolbox.org) to AgBizClimate, in order to determine how short-term climate change may impact net returns for crops and livestock enterprises. Past students from the CS Capstone Course are now members of the dynamic ABL development team.
Objectives: Transfer and integrate data from the Northwest Climate Toolbox database into AgBizClimate for producer analysis.
Deliverables: Actionable data that can be displayed and utilized in AgBizClimate.
