So you think you can code, eh?
The Kijiji Development Team has a great challenge for you.
Armed with your JVM language of choice, your mission is to find out the most profitable streets of Toronto in terms of parking tickets (profitable for the city that is).
On its open data portal, the City of Toronto published the complete list of Parking tickets distributed in 2012
Take a look at their explanation spreadsheet to understand the format of their data.
- Check-out this project
- Download the 2012 data and extract it into src/test/resources

You can add any library you want to the pom.xml but don't modify the test class.

Getting your dream job
Kijiji is constantly recruiting talented developers in Toronto.
If you think that a fast paced, fun, quirky company with a startup culture would be a good fit for you, seize the opportunity when you have the attention of the developers, and attach your resume to your email submission. This is not mandatory, and will have no effect on the contest results – but could have a very dramatic one on your career. Kijiji is a top 10 website in Canada, and a property of eBay, Inc., so the sky is the limit on advancement opportunities for those with talent and drive.
