    How Does the Internet Work?


    Frontend, Backend, DevOps! Server-side rendering! SSL and HTTPS and SQL injection?! What the heck does all this jargon actually mean? If you're in a leadership position and you need to fill a tech role, it can be hard to know up from down. If your software engineer tells you to pay for an expensive service "for security reasons", how do you know whether its worth your money?

    In this workshop, we'll answer the question "how does the internet work" from a Helicopter's perspective. You don't need any programming skills to attend, but be sure to come with questions! By the end, you'll understand the following concepts and how they fit together:

    • The difference between websites, apps, and servers
    • Cybersecurity hygeine (and how to avoid being hacked)
    • Common software developer job descriptions
    • Basics of computer programming (bring a laptop if you want!)

    Tickets: Free for Hatch Members, $20 for non members

    Workshop Leader: Finn Terdal, Technology Manager at Hatch

    Learn the terminology you need to speak confidently with your financial advisors
    Learn basic portfolio management tools so you can analyze your own financial profile and needs

    Social Entrepreneurs Meetup - PDX


    Every third Thursday we hold our main Meetup at Hatch. The primary theme of our group is: Social Entrepreneurs - PDX: How we help each other solve business and social problems.

    We consist of over 300 members of which 1/3 are business owners, or trying to start a business, 1/3 are freelancers that support small business, and 1/3 are folks with shared interests or who are networking.

    We plan to hear five or six five minute pitches from social entrepreneurs.

    Some nights we will hold Mastermind events where a specialist fields questions, other times we do Crowdsolving events where the attendees ask their questions or ask for help with a problem and the group provides feedback, ideas, connections, suggestions.

    Overall, we are a fascinating group of highly motivated changemakers. Hatch is a great co-working space, so if you have not been there, this is a good time to check it out.

    Cold beer and treats are always provided. Suggested Donation is $5 to $10

    I look forward to seeing you there. If you would like to speak (not really a pitch, just casual information) about a local social enterprise or know someone who would, please contact me. (contact info is above)
