• Special Event: Experience Mapping - Understanding Your Story Through Art

    Code & Supply Community Center

    We've partnered with a local artist to provide a mental health based art workshop. We're excited to try something new and hope you'll benefit from this. This workshop is a guided creative exercise for participants to chart personal experiences of their choosing in a map format, and then to create an expressive art piece based on their map. Mapping these experiences (which may include chronic illness, childhood, medical, personal, traumatic, positive, developmental, professional, etc.) in a creative medium channels new realizations and ways of understanding one's story. Individuals are then guided through creating an expressive visual poetry piece using a personal takeaway word from their experience map. The workshop ends with the opportunity for participants to share their takeaways from the exercise. Through using a creative medium to think about their experiences in a new way, participants can connect their mental health experiences with other events in their lives and how those may relate to one another.

  • Food Hackathon

    Code & Supply Community Center

    We're partnering with the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council and 412 Food Rescue to make a food access tool and work with food donation data! Come learn about the projects,* form teams, and start creating things for these wonderful organizations. Representatives from both organizations will be present to discuss these projects and work with the teams. * Quick pitches: 1. Create an interactive tool which includes a map that will help food access organizations plan their efforts and hungry people find affordable, fresh food. 2. Create a natural language processing tool which would allow food donors to report what they have to donate in plain English, then translate that into quantities, units, and food types that 412FR’s matching algorithm can use. Don't know how to code? No problem! We'll have activities for all skill levels to help us design and build the best tools for improving food access.

  • Data Visualization with JupyterLab

    highmark

    Jupyter Lab is the successor to the popular Jupyter/ipython "notebook" interactive browser-based development environment. It combines an interactive shell with rich document presentation including plotting, embedded media, and support for simple GUIs. We'll cover how to use the Jupyter Lab environment in a modern data science workflow. Applications include 2- and 3-D plotting, animated visualizations, callbacks from GUI events, and asynchronous updates from long-running processes. We'll include examples of how to interact with popular javascript visualization libraries like d3 and threejs by writing only python. Chris Currivan presenting. Hosted at Highmark, 120 Fifth Avenue Place (the tall building) 3rd Floor Room D reserved. You will need to sign in with security and show ID.

  • City Scrapers Hack Night

    Code & Supply Community Center

    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! https://github.com/City-Bureau/city-scrapers https://www.citybureau.org/city-scrapers/ https://www.citybureau.org/documenters

  • Technology Yard Sale

    Code & Supply Community Center

    Buy and sell pre-owned devices at the first ever C&S Technology "Yard" Sale, held inside the C&S space. Sellers, request a table ahead of time! (Email [masked] by 10am Thursday April 25.) We all tend to accumulate technology over the years that ends up collecting dust. Just because you thought you were going to repurpose that iMac G3 into an aquarium and lost ambition doesn't mean someone else wouldn't be thrilled to use it. So that's the idea here. Create a convenient place for our community to check out the goods and find some treasures. Doors open at 10am! Refreshments available for sale, benefits the Code & Supply scholarship fund. Sellers: - Please request a table by emailing [masked] by 10am Thursday April 25. Include first & last name, email and a cell phone where we can text you if necessary. No charge to get a table. - Sellers, watch for a reply email from us to confirm we got your request. - Sellers arrive by 9:30am on April 27 to set up your table. There is an elevator. - Tables are on a first-come, first-serve basis. If we get too many sellers, we'll start a wait list. - Anything you bring that doesn't get sold MUST be taken with you when you leave. Note that Calvary Episcopal Church (315 Shady Ave, East Liberty) is having a free e-Waste Collection this same day, April 27 from 10am - 1pm. - Pre-owned items only. No selling services. - Handmade items okay.
