Well, Pete did us a solid with the HMMDMMH.. I took it to the next level, by graphing the data the HMMDMMH provides!
You can change the number of weeks’ worth of data it displays, by adding “&weeks=xx” to the URL, like this. There’s a little bit of missing data here and there, which is why there are some skipped week numbers. Right now, I’ve collected approximately 25 weeks worth of data. This will only grow as MMS does, though! You might end up seeing this in the MMMPIS too!
Also, coming soon: A stand-alone executable version (for Windows) of the HMMDMMH!
EDIT: 2014 Week 26: After this was implemented we looked closer at the numbers and found an error. It has been corrected, hence the drop
I know the question you’ve been asking… How Many Members Does Milwaukee Makerspace Have?
Well fear not, Makers… we’ve got you covered. Just visit hmmdmmh on the Global InterWeb Network and you’ll have the answer.
But wait! I can hear you saying “Hey there Lord of Numbers and Hackmaster General, I’m on my Mobile Smart Device, will this even work!?” And the answer is yes… yes it will.
Rather than force you to install an application specific to your Mobile Platform through some silly “App Store” we decided to use the latest in Web Standards to deliver this information to you. (We call this version ‘hmmdmmhm’ with an extra ‘m’ for ‘mobile’.)
What’s that? Oh yes, how does it work? Well, right now it reads the data from this page, parses it, and stores it in a special Linux-based file system, then displays it to you. In the future our custom membership software will provide an API to get this data, but for now… it’s all beta, so just go with it.
