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.
City Scrapers is 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. Newcomers are always welcome, and folks of all skill sets are welcome.
City Scrapers will be hosted at Code for Pittsburgh's Wednesday Work Nights along side other working group projects. If you have any questions or are interested, please feel free to email at [masked].
