COWPU Needs You

Well things have been quiet around the COWPU universe for the past six months – that is primarily due to myself (Timmy) being the lone manager of the group, and my time has been spread thin across work, family, side projects, and general outdoor debauchery.

Rather than let things languish, I’m hoping there is someone in the Bend Web community that might want to step up and help take over the COWPU reigns for a bit.  I’d be happy to assist still, but the bulk of the work in recruiting speakers and planning meetings is beyond my capacity at this time.

I have really enjoyed organizing the group over the past four years with help from my good friends Ryan Stevens and Jonan Scheffler, but I think it is time for some new blood to take over and help keep the COWPU flowin.  Please contact me at timmydcrawford – gmail if you are interested.

Thanks

August Meeting: Let’s Code For America

Topic: Code For America, Bend Brigade
Presenter: Timmy Crawford
When: Thursday August 30, 2012 **7:00PM**
Where: Tech Space Bend!
141 NW Greenwood Ave, Ste 100
Bend, OR 97701 [map]

We all know how special Central Oregon is.  Between the abundance of outdoor activities, the tasty craft beer, and all those super hip stand-up paddleboarders, we are lucky to live in such a wonderful place.  One goal I have had for COWPU, since taking over as the group manager, was to have a community oriented project that we could perform as a team – as a way to give back to the community.

So last Spring when I heard about Code For America I was very intrigued.  Here is an excellent summary of the project, at a local level:

Mobilizing Citizen Engagement
Anyone can code for America, anywhere. And they are. Across the country civic technologists are coming together to remix and reuse apps, promote openness in city halls, and work together to solve local problems. The Brigade provides a national platform to help these groups come together, and for others, the tools and resources to start a local chapter in their community. This growing network of civic leaders is working to redefine the notion of citizenship at the local level.

I have signed up with COA to be the brigade leader here in Bend, and I would like to dedicate this month’s COPWU meeting to discuss and brainstorm some ideas on web projects that could make Bend an even better place.  There are a list of a few apps built by COA Fellows here, and a whole bunch of code on their Github repo to be inspired by as well.

Knowing our group, I’m certain we can come up with an idea that will not only be of use to the community, but something that is distinctively ‘Bend’.  So I hope you will be excited to join me in Bend’s first Civic Coding project, and the greater Code For America movement.

My name is Timmy Crawford, and I approve this message.
