Now that we’re in the groove of things, we think it’s time Philly sees what we’ve been up to.
The series is comprised of weekly original reporting on local civic tech — think Code for Pittsburgh and data sets published by the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center — plus a weekly newsletter featuring curated links about all things tech in the 412.
Check out the full series (so far) here, or peep the individual stories here:
- Startups and the city: Why PGH Lab connects civic-minded companies with local gov
- Pittsburgh’s future civic technologists are being trained in and outside of the classroom
- Code & Supply is here for Pittsburgh’s ‘awesome’ software community
- 3 women you should know in Pittsburgh civic tech
- Pittsburgh’s civic tech community is decentralized, grassroots, fragmented, distributed — and that’s OK
Yes, Pittsburgh is a five-hour drive and approximately 300 miles from Philadelphia. But there are enough similarities between Pennsylvania’s two largest cities, and specifically their burgeoning tech scenes with active groups of civic-minded technologists, that it’s worth keeping tabs on each other.
