“Testing your Metal in the Portland Tech Scene”

Here at eBay Portland, we believe strongly in having mettle. 

From http://www.vocabulary.com: “Mettle is the courage to carry on. If someone wants to ‘test your mettle,’ they want to see if you have the heart to follow through when the going gets tough… Having the mettle to do something means you have guts. In short, you're a pretty impressive person.“ 

We also believe strongly in listening to Metal. 

Metal is a part of our culture at eBay Portland. “Metal Shirt Friday” is a long-standing weekly tradition, we have a conference room decorated with covers of metal albums, and on any given afternoon you’re likely to hear metal blasting from the speakers of our 9th floor break-room.

So for this Women Who Code event, we’re taking the old saying about testing your mettle and putting an eBay Portland spin on it!
