Toronto Parking Tickets Coding Contest

Toronto Parking Tickets Coding Contest

Your mission is to write a program to figure out which Toronto street gave the city the most revenue from parking tickets in the first three days of January 2012.

Here is a CSV file containing data of all parking tickets issued in Toronto from Jan 1 2012 to Jan 3 2012. This is actual data taken from the Toronto Open Data website. Simply include the CSV file in your project (create a file of the same name and copy-paste its contents) and code your logic to read and parse it accordingly. For better readability, you can open the CSV file in Excel too.

Also, here is a readme file that contains info on the metadata provided in the CSV file. You can use this file as a reference to better understand the data in the CSV file.

How to Enter:

i) Create your program in any technology you like. ( Java / PHP / C# / C++ / Python / Ruby )
ii) Upload the CSV file into your project.
iii) Code and test your program to ensure it works.
iv) Choose "Toronto Ticket contest 2013" as the contest name while making your project public.
