PyStar events are for women and their friends. (Men are welcome as guests of women who are attending.)

Join us for a special PyStar Philly ( project night. We'll be partnering with Code for America Brigade ( to learn about building civic apps with open data. You might have heard of some of Philly's newest web and mobile applications designed to solve civic problems and engage citizens: Sheltr (, Philly Flu Shot Finder (, Baldwin (, Councilmatic (, and Open311 ( These are all civic apps that are built on top of publicly-available government and community data. We'll be exploring and contributing to several Philly-based civic apps at this event. More adventurous folks might even want to build their own!

Things to bring: a laptop and power cord

Food: Pizza provided by Devnuts and CfA.
