Inside the Developer's Studio, with special guest Tony Falco

Portland Code School
735 SW 20th Place #230
Portland, OR 97205, US (map)

Portland Code School is located at 1771 NW Pettygrove St. The door is on Pettygrove, exactly half way between 17th and 18th (just around the corner from PDX Playdate).



Starting this month, Portland Code School will host a monthly public event called "Inside the Developer's Studio." Taking a note from the popular, similarly-named TV show (Inside the Actor's Studio), Cris Kelly, Director of PCS, interviews a dev, or someone in Portland's tech scene, to get to know the guest both personally and professionally. Through the interview, we hear their stories and experiences; we learn from their mistakes and successes; and we learn more about ourselves and our community, as we discover how they arrived in Portland's rousing tech arena, and how they're contributing to it.

This month's guest is Tony Falco, CEO and co-founder of Orchestrate. A database veteran and serial entrepreneur, Tony built Orchestrate after noticing hundreds of companies unnecessarily duplicate database infrastructure time and again. Previously, he co-founded Basho Technologies, creators of the NoSQL database Riak, where he served as COO. Prior, he was VP of Product Management and Technical Services at Akamai Technologies, which he helped grow to an annual revenue of over $200 million.

Spread the word! Invite your friends and colleagues! Bring your questions and your lunch into our spacious classroom over Friday's lunch hour, Noon to 1pm. Q&A opportunities at the end of the interview.
