    Celebration of Life for Igal Koshevoy

    Igal was a volunteer and core contributor for a large number of projects and groups in the Portland tech scene. He helped create Calagator, our community calendar, and became one of its core maintainers. He coordinated a number of user groups for several years, including pdxruby, pdxfunc, and pdxdevops. He was one of the founding committee members for Open Source Bridge, spending long nights to develop our OpenConferenceWare software in time to launch the conference. He hosted some of the most enlightening and entertaining BarCamp Portland and WhereCampPDX sessions on topics like Trains!, Strange Maps, Things that Hover, and more. He was also a skilled photographer and friend to all cats.

    We have set up koshevoy.net to help our community celebrate Igal’s life. Please share memories, photos or words of remembrance, and read what others have shared. We have also created a Facebook page, and on Twitter we request that you use the hashtag #igalko or his twitter handle @igalko.
