The National Weather Service Python library by Joshua W allows users to access service public alerts by weather.gov. Documentation includes guidance to import module, get data use, support methods, and get reports. A toolbelt is a suggestion to include extra handling to avoid to handle data with a library extension. This Python module includes NWS.alert() as an object to wrap with ease.
The ubiquitous U.S. corner store 7-Eleven is helping with an unlikely type of convenience: polling in the upcoming U.S. election. For the last three elections, the store has made red and blue cups to represent the candidates. When customers come to get their coffee, they have the opportunity to "vote" for one of the two main parties. For the upcoming election, that data will be included in the 7-Eleven Election API, so developers can have ready access to the current entirely unscientific polling numbers.
