Building Software for a Non-Profit on Amazon Web Services

I recently completed a project for Human Rights First, a non-profit dedicated to providing legal representation for refugees. Their requirements were to take write-ups of appeal documents and get useful information from them such as the name of the judge, the court location, and the defendant's country of origin. This writeup is a story of my path to making usable code rather than a strict technical specification of the code, but I have linked the repository at the bottom of the article if you just want to see that.
