CITY OPEN Workshop Fall 2017

CITY OPEN Workshop Fall 2017
CITY OPEN Workshop is hands-on bi-weekly meet up to share, learn and contribute to projects connecting city design and public policy. Join us for this workshop series and collaborate among colleagues from urban design and planning, architecture, infrastructure, sustainability, community organizing, real estate and related city development fields of practice both from public and private organizations that are enthusiastic about creating and supporting civic projects. Bring your skills and experience to the workshop— teach something, learn something, create something while connecting with civic-minded young professionals. How does this work? Everyone introduce themselves, co-organizers present a short background / general rules of the game of the workshop, and introduce community leaders who present their problem statement and/or civic initiative(s); finally, participants volunteer to work on proposed initiatives— hopefully, all this during the first 30-min of the session. Other than that, is OPEN workshop time. Do have a project ready for this platform? Email organizers for CITY OPEN Projects guidelines at: Not very familiar with public policy or urban design? Don’t worry, that is what this event is for! Your colleagues are usually the greatest resource! Additionally, co-organizers are Public Policy and Urban Design young professionals, we can help— ask us! If we don’t have the answers, there is a big chance we might know the right person to connect with. Why a platform to support civic projects? We are very inspired by emerging platforms organized by young professionals in Chicago and U.S. testing models for supporting public interest projects and civic initiatives through volunteering work: The One Plus (Architecture and Planning), Chi Hack Nights (Technology). Equally important, they are also creating communities of civic-minded and passionate people supporting their community. We are very interested in enabling a local space where young desigers and planners can do the same.  Why civic projects? Design should be available as a tool and process of community and citizen engagement. Oftentimes, we expect design only from private sector or more technologically savvy stakeholders. Just like advocacy and open data, design should be open for all as a platform for change and participation in the civic space. How to prepare? Bring your (a) skills and tools— laptop or favorite markers highly recommended!, (b) research and/or reference materials that you think would be helpful for workshopping. Just want to brainstorm with us, that's also ok! Although we would like to encourage the DOING or MAKING part of the workshop, everyone is welcome to participate the groups’ discussion and workflow. Soft drinks and light snacks will be provided; if you want to contribute something to the snacks table, that would be also great!

      Racing Your First Sprint Triathlon

      If you are a new triathlete, racing your first triathlon is not an easy task. You will be competing in three different sports in a row and must have the endurance it takes to complete the event (which will most likely last well over an hour of competition).

      The first leg of a triathlon is the swim which is usually one quarter to one half of a mile in open water. With many triathletes in the water at the same time, it is a full contact activity so be prepared to get touched and possibly roughed up. The most important lesson for your first sprint triathlon is to stay calm during the swim and pay attention to your own personal racing strategy.

      The bike leg will be less stressful and if you are considerably fatigued then you can rest by coasting a little during this leg. However, keep in mind that studies have shown that your overall triathlon time will be fastest when you give the bike leg 100% effort instead of saving energy for the run leg of the race. One strategy is to use the first mile of the bike leg to catch your breath and mentally refocus on your race plan. Then you can kick up your effort level and switch to a larger gear.

      When you transition to the run, your legs will feel very strange! If you have practiced brick workouts during your training then you will be familiar with the feeling. Try to maintain a strong pace for the first mile and once your legs feel somewhat normal, you can focus on kicking in to the finish line. Your body is able to handle much more stress than you give it credit for, so do not be afraid to hammer the pace when you are a mile away from the finish line. You can do it!

      With these tactics, you will be able to stay calm, focused, and competitive during your first sprint triathlon race. With several sprint triathlon races under your belt and a strong training program, you will soon be placing within your age group!

      I am a triathlete, coach, and runner who enjoys designing a sprint triathlon training program for individuals. Race fast!

        ProjectLibre User Guide Reference Manual

        ProjectLibre User Guide Reference Manual

        Product Description
        ProjectLibre User Guide Reference Manual is a comprehensive description of the features provided by the ProjectLibre task tracking application. The free, open source tool is an evolution of the earlier OpenProj product, using the same source code as a base.

        This book presents a full description of ProjectLibre from installation to data entry to reporting. Basic functions such as adding tasks, resources and assignments is covered in detail will illustrated examples. It also shows more advanced topics using screen prints from the actual application. Such concepts as critical path, project scheduling and cost baselines are introduced.

        The contents span more than 10 chapters and 130 pages. The chapters include:
        Introduction to ProjectLibre
        Getting Started with ProjectLibre
        Critical Path
        Assign Staff to Tasks
        Project Baseline
        ProjectLibre Additional Resources

        The format is educational. Topics are introduced with valid examples generated from actual use of ProjectLibre. Readers may read the steps or follow along with their own application. Using the steps shown, they may start to develop their own project plans, task lists and resource assignments for educational or business purposes quickly. This book provides both a basic understanding of ProjectLibre as well as in depth coverage of advanced topics.

        The intended audience is those individuals who have project management experience and who may have used OpenProj, Microsoft Project or another tracking application in the past. It is not a project management introduction although it does provide some background information about the field.

        ProjectLibre is a free open source tool which may be used for any project tracking purpose, commercial or personal. It is an evolution of OpenProj, as stated above. Although some autocorrecting software may display the name as “ProjectLiber” or “Project Liber”, it is actually based on “Libre”, the French word for “Free”. The product literally means “Free Project”, a testament to its open source distribution model.

        The ProjectLibre application is perfect for producing project plans that adhere to the full project management methodology as defined by industry standards. With it, the various usual project plans, communication plans and others can be developed, resources assigned and progress monitored. Created project plans may be shipped to anyone for use with their own copy of ProjectLibre.

        Since the application may be installed on any workstation for any purpose, anyone interested in project management may actively apply task tracking, monitoring and controling for any project large or small, commercial or personal. There are no license costs to install or use the application.

        Although ProjectLibre is an open source application, and the code used to build the tool is readily available, the book does not cover development in any detail. The link to the download site is provided as is a basic reference to the source code installation process. Technical users can contact the user community for more detailed instructions.

        ProjectLibre User Guide Reference Manual is a comprehensive, illustrated study of the ProjectLibre application in use. The book contains a large number of actual screen shots of the tool, with annotations that clearly show how to use ProjectLibre.
