    DorkbotPDX Meeting

    Ok, sorry if this spiel sounds familiar... I'm going on fumes at the moment and just wanted to get this out:

    It's time again to break out the breadboards, shine up the solder joints and light up the LEDs with your good friends in DorkbotPDX. We'll be meeting once again to mull over strange ideas (involving electricity, of course), hash out plans for world domination and, as always, drink beer. Come join us, bring along a project if you have one and can fit it in your preferred mode of transport, and make yourself known to your fellow Portland dorks.

    • When: Monday, April 14th, 7pm
    • Where: Lucky Lab NW (not SE!)
    • Who: Dorkbot PDX and *you*

    See you on Monday. Whoever is there first gets to make a grab for the outlets! ;~)

    DorkbotPDX Meeting

    You know you've been sitting there thinking "why don't those two weeks go by faster? I NEED my DorkbotPDX fix, now!"

    Well, I'm here to tell you that your wait is nearly over. In just 4 days time you can satisfy that need to hang out and socialize (a frightening concent, I know) with other freaks and geeks. Of course, I know there's a lot of newcomers out there, so don't be afraid -- we don't bite (well, Don might, but I'll leave that one for you to find out).

    Bring your toys, your ideas and most of all your ability to have fun. We take all kinds and we don't turn anyone away.

    * When: Monday, April 28th, 7pm<br />
    * Where: Lucky Lab NW (not SE!)<br />
    * Who: Dorkbot PDX and *you*<br />

    Substance Summit

    [Full details at http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/834270/ ] The first in a series of conversations with the Portland creative community to help each other understand how we can be more inclusive, collaborative and effective. We have been inspired by Portland's creative technology community (Legion of Tech and Silicon Florist to name a few) to help facilitate an environment where we share ideas and create a place that draws the best talent and the best clients to Portland to get the best creative work possible. This is the first of many conversations. We don't expect to solve the world's problems, let alone ours, over one beer (or two, or three...). But if we're going to start, it might as well be here and now. Location is the Lucky Lab NW Beer Hall

    OLPC and Beer Meetup

    Hey you, yeah you with the OLPC, your fellow OLPCers are having a meetup on Thursday evening at Lucky Labrador Brew Hall in NW Portland. You should come on out, meet your fellow OLPCers and mesh. Earlier this year, Wayan of OLPCNews came to town to talk about the OLPC and we had a great time meeting others who were supporters of the technology and the vision.

    For those of you wondering what I’m talking about, the OLPC stands for One Laptop Per Child. Last Christmas they ran a special called Buy One, Get one which allowed you to buy an OLPC (pictured left) for a child somewhere in the world and you would get your own. Once it hit the geek market in America, the possibilities have been endless. I was amazed at how cool this little guy was and how simple it was to use. Too bad my sausage fingers couldn’t navigate the keyboard. Oh well, I’m no child either.

    Come on down to Lucky Lab Thursday night and check them out yourself. The OLPCers are a good bunch and love to talk technology.

    Maps 2.0, Google Earth, and GPS: What's New, What Works

    HumaniNet will present a status report on our Maps 2.0 initiative, which is exploring ready-to-use Web-based mapping tools for humanitarian and nonprofit organizations.

    Dylan Myers, a digital mapping specialist at Google Maps, will also be there to answer your questions on the ever-expanding toolkit of Google Maps and Google Earth. Dylan was a key member of a Mercy Corps team that conducted a GIS (geospatial information systems) project in Indonesia following the 2004 tsunami.

    Conversation ad networking begin at 5 p.m. At 6 p.m., Gregg Swanson and Matt Blair of HumaniNet will briefly discuss the initial findings of the research, which is based on interviews with aid and relief managers in Afghanistan, Sudan, Singapore, London, and – not least - Portland.

    Among the topics: some notes from Matt on emerging Web 2.0 social mapping services, including the promise and pitfalls of 'crowd-sourced' geospatial data.

    Following Q&A, you can meet Dylan, see demos, exchange ideas, practiceyour “geo-geek speak,” and learn more about what online maps can do for your project or organization.

    The 501 Tech Club event is co-sponsored by NTEN.

    PDX 501 Tech Club/Net Tuesday: Nonprofit Tech Extravaganza

    Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

    Join us to talk nonprofit technology and how 2 organizations working for your better good want to collaborate to create more useful events for you in 2009.

    The idea is to provide a fuller, more in-depth series of events. Our main goal is to provide a two monthly meetups that directly relate to each other, providing introductory information and hands-on engagement. But we want to see if that aligns with your goals!

    We're going to dedicate our November meetup to a party of sorts to help us determine what it is you would like to know and learn... and how much you're willing to learn.

    Come for this pre-holiday party with food, fun, good folks and conversation!

    Email questions to Anna at anna@nten.org. Hope you can make it!

    Net Squared, a product of Tech Soup, works to spur responsible adoption of social web tools by social benefit organizations. There's a whole new generation of online tools available ? tools that make it easier than ever before to collaborate, share information and mobilize support. These tools include blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, podcasting, and more. Some people describe them as "Web 2.0"; we call them the social web, because their power comes from the relationships they enable.

    Tech Strategy 2009: More for Less

    Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

    If one of your New Year's resolutions is to use technology to work smarter, look no further! We are working off a fabulous brainstorming session that occurred last November to bring you topics relevant to your work and give you a chance to network with your peers.

    This meeting will be talking overall tech strategy. Do you have a technology plan in place? What types of things should you be thinking of? We're going to take a look at the big picture and help you see what ways you can be using technology to make your nonprofit's work more efficient.

    This will be a joint meetup with the Nonprofit Technology Network's, Portland 501 Tech Club. Speaker details are still being finalized but be sure it will be some great local tech talent!

    Tech MeetUp: Diagnose Your Website's Issues

    Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

    Does your site scream out, "I haven't changed my image since 1995!" Or maybe, your pages are plagued by lengthy copy that just keeps going and going… Perhaps your web presence just doesn't really reflect all the great work your organization does.

    Get at the heart of web issues and head in an effective direction to achieve your website goals. At this meetup, we'll delve into website hang-ups and problem-solve cures for the "common" website. Fodder for website problem-solving could include: - browser compatibility - unique identity and online presence - easy navigation - web-optimized images - color scheme and text/background contrast - title tags - any other number of web issues that get under your skin

    Leading the discussion at this month's joint NTEN 501Tech Club and Net Squared MeetUp will be Eve Simon, Creative Director at Beaconfire Consulting. Eve brings 14 years of online visual design, user experience and creative management in both the corporate and nonprofit sectors.

    With Eve leading the discussion, we'll delve into the web design process. And if you’re game, we'll jump into a discussion on the inherent or perceived conflict between IA and Design. Understand why Eve might tell you, "A wireframe is not a coloring book."

    PAGDIG Meetup

    PAGDIG stands for Portland Area Game Developers Interest Group. It is the local IGDA chapter for Portland, OR. The group has been dormant for a while but is currently in the early stages of revitalization.

    Anyone from an individual enthusiast working on flash games in their spare time up to EA-sized studios are welcome to participate.

    We have several goals: * To meet like-minded developers in the area. We want to be a forum where we can meet other developers and enthusiasts. * To be a social/networking forum more than having structured meeting topics. We want to be a place you can meet like minded developers and discuss your work. There’s a strong focus on indies, which should be unsurprising for Portland. * To serve as the area IGDA chapter. There is not a huge game developer presence in Portland, overshadowed as we are by nearby Seattle, but we feel there are more than enough people in the area who would like to meet up and keep in contact. * To consume vast quantities of pizza and/or beer.

    Portland Augmented Reality Advocates - Getting together for real

    I want to get people together and start building some momentum. We are a small group right now so I want to see if we can just crowd around the end of a pub table, shoot some darts, drink some beer and eat some Pizza and talk about what we see in AR and where we each want to take it.

    Lucky Lab in the Pearl is a great wide open spot we can meet and if the group grows enough they have a meeting room we can rent out.

    So please spread the word and bring along anyone who you know into AR, Design, App programming or just wants a beer in the earlymidweek.

    Brewpal: informal Drupal meet-up

    What is this event? It's an informal meetup each month to work on our own individual Drupal projects in the company of other Drupalers. The idea is that you can work on your own project, ask a question to your neighbor if you're stuck, chat with others about your brilliant Drupal start-up idea, and then take a beer break whenever you want.

    If you are bringing your laptop, don't forget to charge it ahead of time (since Lucky Lab's power outlets are minimal).

    Here are the details:

    Time: 5:00 - 9:00 p.m.

    Lucky Lab Beer Hall 1945 NW Quimby St. Portland, OR 97209 (Yes, they have wifi.)

    So get ready to pack up your laptop and see you soon!

  • September Portland Area Game Developer's Interest Group: Roundtable + Meetup

    Hello all! It's PAGDIG time this week, Thursday 9/27 at 7pm at the Quimby Lucky Lab.

    It's a special night, as we will have Pigsquad and Games for Change joining us all in the same venue. There will be good food, good drinks and the good company of Portland's game developers! Bring stuff to work on and share, or just stop by to talk.

    The roundtable discussion topic this week:

    Staying Productive and Inspired: How Creative People Get Work Done

    Anyone who does creative work (art, design, programming, music) knows there's a fine balance we have to maintain, splitting time between finding inspiration and buckling down and getting things done. When does looking for inspiration become detrimental distraction? When does working for hours on end become hazardous and counterproductive?

    Let's all talk about how we deal with this in our daily work: how we stay focused, how we stay excited, how we budget our time and attention

    See ya all there!

    The theme of this month's meetup is What Are We All Working On. Bring by and show off whatever you're currently working on that's game related: demos of any form and polish level, recent game jam entries, paper prototypes too! Even if you don't have something to show, come by, grab some pizza and beverages and get inspired by what your local dev and indie community is making.

    We've had some cool stuff happen for PAGDIG peoples over the last couple months: Harold/Twyngo's game Amazing Ants came out. Also, two attendee games have made the Pax East Indie Showcase: John/Clutchplay's Little Chomp and Jared/PagodaWest's Major Magnet!

    Mobile Weekly Workgroup

    Welcome to the PDX Mobile Workgroup.

    Beginners are encouraged to join.

    We welcome Software and Hardware Engineers working on Android, iOS, and all other mobile platforms.

    Working on projects by yourself can be difficult because don't get the feedback or interaction you get in an office environment. Online sites such as stackoverflow.com are great resources for answering well defined questions, but don't have the benefits of personal interactions. When you are part of a community you get to know others with similar interests, get an immediate response to hard to describe problems, bounce ideas off of others, and learn by example.

    The in person Weekly Workgroup is the main reason the group exists. It is designed to fill the void for engineers who would otherwise work on their projects in relative isolation from other engineers. This website is mostly used for discussion about meetings but posting questions about mobile development is good too.

    The group is informal. Attendees stop by at various times after work and stay as long as they like.

    For more information visit our website and show up for our next meeting.

    PDMA Learning and Networking Event: Gerry Langeler and the Success Matrix

    Your Oregon Chapter of the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA) - the folks who bring you ProductCamp Portland - invites you to its November Learning and Networking Event with featured speaker Gerry Langeler.

    Product and business success in general has three fundamental elements - Vision, Process and Output. Unfortunately, not everyone is equally skilled in all three areas. Gerry started forming a model to describe eight “characters” around the presence or absence of those attributes during his time at Mentor Graphics and has been refining it over the years. He will offer an overview of this model at our event. By understanding Gerry’s “Success Matrix”, you will have a better understanding of why some individuals and product teams flourish while others struggle. You will also be able to apply this model to your individual professional growth and career advancement.

    Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and learn from one of the most successful and experienced high-tech executives in Portland. We will also preview our exciting program for 1H 2014, including ProductCamp Portland 3.0.

    Our Presenter - Gerry Langeler

    Gerry Langeler currently serves as Managing Director and Partner of OVP Venture Partners and focuses on investments in the digital energy, software, imaging and digital biology sectors.

    Prior to joining OVP in 1992, Gerry was co-founder of Mentor Graphics Corporation (NASDAQ: MENT) in Portland, OR in 1981. There he served as President, and over eleven years helped lead Mentor through its IPO to over $400M in worldwide sales and over $1B in market capitalization. He began his technology career at Tektronix. Langeler received the Lifetime Achievement award from the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network in 2011.

    Date: Thursday, November 21, 2013

I also have over 70 (I almost wish I had not counted them) IOS music apps, not that I'm an expert or even useful in most of them. Most notable in the missing category is Cubasis, just waiting for it to go on sale again.
