ThursdayFeb 21 2008Ruby and OSS evening social
[UPDATE 2/20: You can still come to the event, even if you didn't register/pay for the catered dinner earlier. Although you won't get the meal, the Hilton agreed to let non-diners in for free without any additional RSVPs/registrations. The room will have extra tables and a bar if you'd like to buy drinks.]
Join us for an evening social event where you'll get a chance to meet Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto, the creator of Ruby, and members of Japanese and Oregon-based organizations that use and contribute to Ruby and open source.
This event will be a great way to meet Ruby and open source enthusiasts ranging from programmers to CEOs, from journalists to city officials. You'll get a chance to learn how they're using and promoting these tools in Oregon and Japan, and discuss the open source movement and its communities. Be ready to make some new connections, so bring your business cards. This event is NOT about formal lectures or sales pitches, but for facilitating interpersonal discussions and creating new relationships here and abroad.
We look forward to seeing you there!

WednesdayMay 27 2009OEN: When Your Customers can't Live Without You with Author Stewart Emery
Today, if someone took a poll of your customers and constituents, asking if you matter to them, what do you think the response would be?
If you ceased to exist tomorrow, do you think anyone would care? In other words, has your product, service or brand established an emotional connection with your customers to the extent that they are invested in your enduring success?
You're invited to participate in a dynamic exploration of how to matter with Stewart Emery co-author of the critically acclaimed bestseller Do You Matter? – an insightful analysis of how great design for the human experience builds ardent, lasting bonds between you, your company and your customers.
As author of the international bestseller, Success Built to Last, and leader of Belvedere Consultants, Emery has delivered and led workshops, seminars and keynotes all over the world. On May 27th, he'll talk about design as a total concept from how a product looks, operates, sounds and feels to designing a company culture that is authentic and customer-centric focused – and how it's the cornerstone of your survival in a marketplace of mediocrity. This rare opportunity is one you don't want to miss.
Date & Time: Wednesday, May 27, 2009 - 4:00 – 6:30 Location: The Hilton Portland, 921 SW Sixth Avenue, Portland, Oregon, 97204 (The Pavilion Room) Max Light Rail (Trimet Max Pioneer square two blocks from hotel) Cost: $50

SundayOct 23 2011SPLASH 2011
SPLASH stands for Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity. SPLASH is an annual conference that embraces all aspects of software construction and delivery, and that joins all factions of programming technologies. Since 2010 SPLASH is the umbrella for OOPSLA and Onward!.
This year, SPLASH comes to Portland! The program includes talks by Turing Award winner Ivan Sutherland, Mozilla's Brendan Eich, fun events like the Hackathon, Guy Steele geeking out on square dancing calls, and much, much more!
Portland area developers groups: contact email@example.com for instructions on how your members can register with the same discount as ACM members.
Big Data Hackathon at SPLASH/OOPSLA with Amazon Web Services
Hackathons are participatory event. You don't show up to watch or to hang out; you show up to lead or to join a team of other developers to imagine, create, and build something cool and useful in the course of a single day. This may sound impossibly ambitious. It is not. You can get a lot done when you can ignore your inbox and simply focus on the task at hand. The ability to tap in to high-level services certainly helps, as does the fact that everyone shows up expecting to work.
