July Website Optimization Workshop

On Sunday, July 14th (11am-2pm) Owl & Raven will be hosting a Website Optimization workshop led by local web developer and Owl & Raven co-founder Hannah Shaffer.

The workshop will focus on tips and tricks for attracting new clients, utilizing the right social media venues, and improving search engine optimization (SEO) for increased visibility on the web.

The Website Optimization workshop is best-suited to small business owners, bloggers, and entrepreneurs—in the spirit of enriching our local community.

In the same spirit, all proceeds from this workshop will go to the Owl & Raven community space!

Feb 2nd 3D Printing Demo

Join us next Saturday, February 2nd at 12pm, for an Interactive 3D Printing Demonstration and discussion. Justin Leone will guide us through the process of designing in a 3D application, translating an object into printable format, and printing the object in plastic.

Because we won’t have time to design on-the-fly, Justin is accepting submission ideas for simple 3D objects. If you’d like your object printed, you can email your submission to Justin.

Any participants can come for the demonstration and take home a copy of something we make.

Suggested donation of $10 for Owl and Raven and to cover material costs. If you take home an object, you must donate for the cost of materials.

Disclaimers: There are some limitations regarding what can be printed, and how much time we have (large size increases print time, high complexity and detail increase design time, and severe overhangs might make an object difficult to print at all), so depending on attendance, we may not be able to print everyone’s model.

Community Code-Ins

ComputerSaturday afternoons, 2:00-5:00pm

Programmers and tech enthusiasts of all levels and backgrounds welcome!  Drop by with a laptop, a project (if you have one), and an open, inquisitive mind.  Help a beginner, pick up a new skill, or just enjoy working in the company of others.

Even if you’ve never written a line of code (and aren’t interested in learning), there are many ways you can participate – free and open source projects are always looking for help with documentation, design, translation, and community outreach to name a few.

We’re happy to connect you with something that’s right for you.
