Chicktech Philly is excited to host Building Diverse Tech Teams: An Evening of Lightning Talks as part of Philly Tech Week! Join local technologists and executives for an evening of networking and lightning talks focused on how and why to hire and retain diverse technical talent.
Public Access has democratized and diversified TV and Radio programming in ways that leave us to consider what is possible if immersive media and emerging technology are included in Public Access facilities. Imagine a world where AI, VR, MR, AR, and 3D technology allow us to construct experiences as a community-driven public access utility. What are the implications or opportunities for our families, our neighborhoods, our schools, our public health, or our government when emerging technology is people powered media?
PhillyCAM is partnering with media artists, Anula Shetty and Michael Kuetemeyer, to host this experimental installation for PhillyCAM members and the general public to explore community engagement through digital technology. Projects on display from 12PM to 5PM.
Anula Shetty and Michael Kuetemeyer are award winning media artists whose work has been screened at MOMA, the Flaherty Film Seminar and film festivals and museums worldwide. They are co-directors of the video collective Termite TV and have had extensive experience creating video installations and teaching digital media to youth and community groups. Their immersive documentary work involves exploring new ways of experiencing a place and the oral histories that surround it. Current projects include Time Lens www.timelens.org, an immersive mobile App about gentrification and homelessness and Places of Power www.termite.org/power. They are interested in using VR, AR and mobile apps as platforms to distribute community and artistic media.
PhillyCAM, Philadelphia’s public access television network, is a community media center that brings people together to make and share media that promotes creative expression, democratic values and civic participation.

Thinkful Webinar | Intro to Data Analytics: SQL Fundamentals
SQL (Structured Query Language) is the most ubiquitous language for data scientists and data analysts. Companies store their data in a database, and SQL is a common database query language that helps you to build your database, retrieve the data, and work with that data in a structured manner.
In this course, you’ll learn to extract and analyze data stored in databases. You’ll first learn to extract data and work with simple queries to pull specific data you need for your analysis. Join us for a fun interactive workshop that will get you on your way to using SQL.
