Mentors needed to help Pitt CS students understand what to expect as they transition to their professional lives. Join Pitt Computer Science Club and Code & Supply members for a mentorship dinner on Monday, March 18. Over a free meal, discuss career aspirations, long-term goals, and more while having honest career conversations with other students and professionals in a causal environment.
Mentors note below in the comments if you'd like to introduce yourself before the event.
With the deadline to submit a talk for Abstractions II right around the corner, C&S will be hosting a work session for submitting a talk to Abstractions. Use this time as time dedicated to finally get your idea submitted or ask questions of the Abstractions staff. In attendance from the Abstractions team will be Justin the Executive Director, Sarah the Program Director, and a few more who will help you understand how to make the best possible talk proposal.
We'll have some light refreshments, non-distracting music, and a few planned breaks to discuss things as a group.
Learn how to pick a Python package that suits your needs. Rescheduled from January. Python's 3rd party package ecosystem is one of its main features, but with 150,000 packages on PyPI, the choices can be overwhelming. Bring your "I want a library that does X" questions to this interactive session and come away with the skills to find your own answers.
Appropriate for all levels of Python experience; may be helpful to users of other languages as well. Hosted by Pete Fein.
The City Bureau City Scrapers open source project supports the Documenters program for documenting public events, such as school board meetings, City Hall meetings, police board meetings, etc. We are hoping to build a community in Pittsburgh that can start building and supporting scrapers within the platform for the Pennsylvania region.
This should serve as a risk-free python/Git learning environment, a way to build a platform for public engagement in Pittsburgh, and an environment designed to prioritize a more diverse coding space than most civic tech groups.
If you have any questions or are interested, please feel free to email at [masked].
