Refresh Pittsburgh + CodePen Pittsburgh Meetup!


October Meetup with CodePen Pittsburgh!

After a long break after this year’s Web Design Day conference, we’re back to our regular scheduled programming!

Join us at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, October 5th at Stack as we join forces with CodePen Pittsburgh for a fun night.  As always, this is a free event, but all attendees must RSVP so we can get an accurate headcount for the night.  Just follow this link and let us know you are coming!

Tracey Berg-Fulton will be giving a talk to start the session off, followed by a CodePen show & tell and a code challenge at the end. There will also be some CodePen swag that you can’t get anywhere else. If you still want to hang out after the meet up, come to Sharp Edge Beer Emporium for more food and drinks.

Tracey Berg-Fulton is Provenance Researcher and Collections Database Associate at the Carnegie Museum of Art, in addition to being a junior web developer and the voice behind @MuseumSwearJar. Since 2012, she has served as web chair of the Registrars Committee of the American Alliance of Museums. Tracey is a graduate of Otterbein University and the University of Glasgow. She and her husband share their home with an adopted Giant Schnabrador named Walter.

Hit it with a Hammer or Light it on Fire: Lessons on Web Development from an Old Car

In August, I made the best worst decision of my life and purchased a two door, 59 horsepower, four cylinder, three gear, 57 year old rust bucket death trap called a Nash Metropolitan, with the intention of learning how to work on cars under the tutelage of my father. Little did I know that the tiny car would teach me more about web development than the workings of British engines. This talk will focus on how the manual processes and problem solving required to work on an old car have helped me grow as a web developer, the parallels that exist between the two worlds, and pushing through the tough times.
