Cleanweb PDX Meetup: Monthly Hack, Eat & Drink
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

At this monthly meeting, we get together, talk about app ideas for one or two industry (such as sporting apparel, commercial building, food, water, etc). These are the local industry that can use some help to identify solutions to reduce carbon footprint and lessen any negative environmental impact to local residents.

Our goal is to brainstorm innovative ideas utilizing information technology by leveraging the mobile and social web.

Of course, creative juice often comes after a glass of nice brew. That's how drink is involved in this. If you not a drinker, the Pub serves good food of you to hack & eat.

We are not really building an app at the meeting (but if you would like to crank out an app in 90 mins, that would be awesome too). And what are we doing with these ideas? You'll have to come to find out.

For those who won't be able to make it in person you can join via G+ Hangout. Please let me know in advance.

Thanks and hope to see you on the 15th!

PSU-TAO Cleanweb Hack (updated)
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

If you haven't already signed up for the Hack tomorrow at PSU, we hope some details included here will entice you. To prepare our participants for a fun and productive day, below are details and resources for the Hack.

Goals: To generate ideas are innovative to solving environmental and sustainability, social equity issues through utilization of software and mobile apps. Don’t forget to have some fun.

Idea Generation: To start, you should ask the following questions: 1) What issues you and your team would like to tackle? (ie. carbon emissions reduction by buildings or vehicles, solar potential identifier, change of personal habits, e-waste tracking, etc.) 2) What do other similar applications exist on the market? Sometimes, building on existing apps can resolve a more refined product. 3) What is the marketability? Is it scalable?

The best project ideas are one that you are passionate about, and have some components of competition and linkage to social media.

Finding Data: While you are brainstorming ideas, you should also consider data availability as well. It is not the end of the world if you don’t have data sets or APIs to mock up a prototype. Simply build your own datasets, even if just a few that are enough for you to test out your product.

See the Cleanweb Hack resource guide for APIs, data sets, sample projects and project ideas. (http://tinyurl.com/m7a744e)

Judging Criteria: At the end of day, your prototype will be scored on these criteria: 1) Impact on resource and sustainability issues 2) Design and usability of prototype 3) Feasibility and marketability 4) Good use of datasets and APIs

Prizes: 1st Place - $500, 2nd Place - $250

Bragging right is priceless.

Our judges are looking forward to your innovations!

Winston Saunders, Director of Data Center Security Initiatives at Intel Chris Harder, Division Manager at the Portland Development Commission (PDC) Skip Newberry, President at the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO)
