GNOME Happy Hour
Ecliptic Brewing

GNOME recently released 3.12, help us celebrate the release! If you don't know what GNOME is or what Free Software is, come over and find out about one of the most interesting and sometimes controversial free and open source projects out there. The hosts are Sriram Ramkrishna - Director of the GNOME Foundation and Ikey Doherty - who wrote his own desktop based on GNOME technologies.

The GNOME Foundation also runs the popular Outreach Program for Women (https://gnome.org/opw/)

Hope to see you all there. Look for the GNOME trademark :)

Snowdrift.coop casual meetup / chat
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

Snowdrift.coop is a volunteer-built non-profit community project focused on a new sustainable matching system to coordinate the global community in better funding shareable freely-licensed works. The Snowdrift.coop platform uses the Yesod web framework written in Haskell. Other technologies and relevant work includes basic HTML/CSS/JavaScript and general design, organizing, and other non-technical tasks.

This is the second local Portland meetup. While the community includes people on many continents across the globe, we have a strong Portland foundation with one of the co-founders, the lead developer, and several active volunteers and supporters in the area.

At this meetup, we'll mostly discuss the project overall status, strategy, any other casual chat, planning, and organizing. We'll also focus on just folks getting to know each other as local Portlanders involved in the project. Complete newcomers or just folks curious about the idea are totally welcome, and no particular experience or skills are needed to get involved.

Benefit Concert for the Software Freedom Conservancy: Schubert's "Winterreise"
Classic Pianos

Christian Höppler, bass, and Karl Fogel, piano, will perform Franz Schubert's famous song cycle Die Winterreise. The concert is free but donations are requested, all proceeds from which will benefit the Software Freedom Conservancy.

These guys, both amateurs who work in Free software, have been rehearsing at my house and they are AWESOME. Goosebumps. The lyrics are in German but there will be translations.

The 8:30 ending time is real - you will be able to attend the other parties, make it to dinner on time, etc.
