C&S is a community of software professionals enabled by members contributing $10 to $60 per month. Become a supporter today at https://codeandsupply.co/join . Events are free for everyone, not just contributors.
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].
For more info on the Documenters program or the coding project, see below!
Richard Ashkettle, TeleTracking's Principal Architect, will lead this roundtable discussion as the third event in C&S' series on architecture.
It's easy to think of the cloud as merely a datacenter located somewhere else. However, unless you are just moving your IT infrastructure, there are a lot of differences to consider in your Architectural Decisions.
This will be more of a discussion than a lecture. Zero slides. I'll bring my thoughts, experience, and opinions. Feel free to bring the same. At its core, architecture is only done right when it's a free-flowing conversation of ideas. I guarantee we will all come out of it with a fresh perspective.
Python's 3rd party package ecosystem is one of its main features, but with 150,000 packages on PyPI, the choices can be overwhelming. Learn how to pick a package that suits your needs. 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.
