Online Watch Party: Men in Black: International
Friday, July 5th @ 8PM
Released in 2019, Men in Black: International is the fourth installment in the Men in Black franchise. In this version, Liam Neeson, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson work to root out a mole in the MIB organization while at the same time managing intergalactic politics.
The simplest way to get started with OpenStreetMap contributions! Meet up with OSM Windsor-Essex on Monday, August 15th and we’ll work together on improving local geodata using a free and easy-to-use Android application. This event does not require any OSM knowledge, but it does require:
- an android device
- the Street Complete app
- mobile data
- an OSM account
This event will be outdoors and does involve a few kilometers of slow-paced walking. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring water. This is a learning opportunity for everyone, so we’ll be moving at a comfortable pace both physically and technologically!
Meeting Location: Ottawa St at Elsmere Avenue, in front of USpy (871 Ottawa St)
Meeting Time: 6 pm
In case of inclement weather, event will be postponed. Stay tuned to our socials and event pages for updates!
Any questions, please reach out to Lauren@hackf.org
A Data Warehouse combines data from disparate sources into one repository, from which analysts can generate reports and draw conclusions. DWs are an extremely valuable tool for anyone needing to consolidate information and develop insights, but pulling them off is often a challenge.
In this free, one-hour lecture, Doug Sartori walks through the work he did with Parallel 42 Systems to design and develop a warehouse of community data for the United Way Windsor-Essex ProsperUs project.
Tune in to learn about the struggles encountered, how they were overcome, and the lessons learned for future iterations of this warehouse.
Everyone welcome, register via Zoom to receive the call link.
It’s already been ten years since Hackforge became incorporated as a registered non-profit! To celebrate this amazing milestone and everything we’ve done in the past decade, all current and former Hackforge volunteers, members, board members, speakers, supporters, and visitors are invited to join us at The Thirsty Butler (1585 Wyandotte St E) on Monday, August 29th.
This is a great way to relive your favourite Hackforge moments, and to ask questions about what Hackforge has planned for the future. Even if you haven’t attended an event in a while, we’d love to see you at this one!
Stop by between 6 and 9 pm for a casual hangout and reunion!
