#FullStackPDX : Code Critique

Who are we? We are entrepreneurs, full stack engineers, hackers, continuous learners, but above all, we are a group that loves to work hard and play harder. We organize a variety of content types, and the organizing team believes in delivering the best value for time invested in our events. Companies have launched, founders paired, code taken apart, lessons learned, and more. We are not the typical meetup where a teacher like presenter stands in front of the class and delivers their message. We are a full hands on interactive experience and meetings are successful from the cumulative knowledge and expertise of all members.

Join us for something different.

Join us to learn.

Let’s have fun building our dreams.

Portland JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting
Janrain Headquarters

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

This month Jesse Hallett will talk about React and the Virtual DOM. React is a library for building HTML views in a less stateful, more functional way than is done with many other frameworks. Under the hood it uses a virtual DOM representation, which makes page updates really fast.

Thanks go to PubNub for sponsoring pizza, and to Janrain for providing meeting space.

Feel free to join our mailing list at if you too are a JavaScript admirer. Or visit our web site for more information at

If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please e-mail Jesse Hallett ([email protected]).

Ex Novo Brewing Company

Hello Reagents!

We are having another casual/drinkup meeting to prepare for our first official meetup(s) in Jan/Feb. To keep the conversation focused we're trying to limit the attendance to about 20 people, so please RSVP here.

We will be discussing what our plans are for the initial meetings starting early 2015. Please bring your thoughts with you. If you can't make it, or would like to get the discussion started now, please use the comment/conversation on the meetup page.

Thanks, look forward to seeing you next month!

Portland ReactJS meetup

Greetings fellow Reagents!

We are looking forward to our first official ReactJS user group. Dave and Eric from will be sharing some interesting stuff (details below) with us, and we're hoping to have one additional talk. Please let us know if you're interested in speaking/presenting. We'd like to have at least a few lightning talks as well. I have a feeling this will fill up fast, so please RSVP if you would like to attend this event.

If you are new to our group, Welcome! If you would like to get more involved or hear what we're talking about, we'd like to invite you to join our google group to join the conversations or start a new one. Also, please take a look at our code of conduct which let's you know what we think "being excellent to each other" should look and feel like.


Notes on the Design of Components (Dave McCabe)

Dave will discuss what has learned about designing React components, specifically techniques for promoting simplicity, reuse, statelessness, and separation of concerns, and for dealing with asynchrony.

Isomorphic Webpack Hot Module Replacement Boilerplate (Eric O'Connell)

  • Do you want to serve fully-rendered HTML from your React application?
  • Do you want near-instant feedback in your browser as soon as you edit your React components?
  • How about CSS?

This talk will give the starting point for a very nice dev environment using the webpack Hot Module Replacement feature. It will include a (trivial) Express app that renders the entire React component hierarchy which will then be hydrated on the client. Variations shown will include serving API requests out of the same app, and shared client/server routing.

TBD / Lightning talks

Get in touch with us if you'd like to share your experiences!

2-day workshop: Advanced Redux/Async
through Epicodus

Image Logo - Advanced Redux: A 2-day workshop from Real World React

Note: this is a paid event. You can purchase tickets at

You've learned React, and are excited about building robust, scalable applications. But at some point your application is going to become too complex for React to handle on its own. How do you effectively manage each component and their states? Enter Redux.

Redux has fast become the architecture of choice for building scalable applications with JavaScript and React. It will help you to better organize your application and make state mutations more predictable and transparent.

In this advanced workshop, FreeCodeCamp CTO Berkeley Martinez will help you to take your development skills to the next level.

What you will learn

Saturday - Sunday:

  • Using Redux Middleware
  • Managing Asynchronicity
  • Dispatching Thunks and Promises
  • Using Redux with RxJS Observables
  • Analytics with Redux
  • Server Side Rendering using RxJS Observables

What we will build

We will apply the principles above as we build a social e-commerce app, complete with:

  • Search and Filtering
  • User authentication
  • Likes
  • Follows
  • Shopping Cart

Hack Oregon Spring Buildathon
Hidden Venue

Spring Buildathon!

Guidelines for Guest Contributors

What is it?

Believe it or not, Hack Oregon actually doesn’t really do a lot of Hackathons. We form specialized teams to build software and open data stories for important themes in Oregon, and work and iterate incrementally over months to create a product.

The "Buildathon" is the one day where we open up our project teams for guest and current contributors that want to be part of the magic and build something amazing, but might not have the time to participate in our months-long project season.

What’s the goal?

The Buildathon is a production sprint. We’ve laid the groundwork to do research, visualizations, and data storytelling quickly, and we need your help to bring our projects to the next level. We’ll get to work shoring up and finalizing our projects with some cross-team and outsider help. We’re going to use our lifelines and help each other close those blocked github issues and fine-tune designs.

Be prepared to make friends and be an instant part of our Hack Oregon family!

How can I get involved?

By joining our sprint, you’ll be placed with a team that needs extra hands on deck in your particular skill set. We’re working toward our public demo day at OMSI on May 1st, where you can proudly present alongside your team.


  • Team T-Shirt

  • All Day Food

  • Ticket to sold out Demo Day

  • Profound Glory

Submit your information here and we’ll reach out to match you with a team and link to reserve your ticket.

Below you’ll find a list of skills and roles we’re looking for at the Buildathon, along with this year’s five project themes.

Technical skills we’re looking for the Buildathon:

  • Front End Developers (we use React.js)

  • Data Visualization Developers (we use React.js/D3.js)

  • API Developers (we use Django)

  • Database Programmers (we use PostgreSQL)

  • UX/UI Designers

  • DevOps Engineers (we use AWS, Docker, Travis.CI)

  • Content Writers / Copywriters

  • Data Scientists (we use Python)

  • Multimedia Developers (Photography, Motion Graphics, Animation, Videography)

  • Visual Designers (Graphic Design, Illustration)

Project Teams


MVP: We’re highlighting the City of Portland’s budget data in a neutral manner so that users can quickly and efficiently understand its components, view basic spending trends and dive deeper into bureau-level budgets.

Stretch Goals: We’ll organize more sophisticated granular views, and applied analysis of deltas and outcomes of programs.


MVP: We’re creating a new system organize and model the efficiency of road construction and capital infrastructure planning.

Stretch goals: Expand into usage and impact of Portland’s biking and transit ecosystem through the lense of multi-modal transportation patterns.

Emergency Response

MVP: We are collaborating with Portland Fire and Rescue to take data relating to their emergency calls and build interesting dashboards, visualizations, and simulations.

Stretch goals: Understand more about how emergency response patterns vary by unique aspects of neighborhood demographics.


MVP: We’re exploring how the city and its neighborhoods have changed over time, from the perspective of 12 representative households.

Stretch Goals: We’ll work with raw data from the voter registration to explore change of address as a vector, which may indicate displacement trends.


MVP: We’re expanding the perception around the definitions of homelessness in Portland and the moment in time where people experience homelessness.

Stretch goals: Capture a fuller picture of children in Multnomah County who hang in the balance food security and housing security.
