    Lesbians Who Tech - Sounding Board

    Have a talk that you are working on and are looking to practice in front of friendly faces? Never given a talk and need a reason to start one? Want some constructive feedback or just some human bodies to listen to you yammer? Interested in listening to some tech (and non-tech) talks? Just want to eat some pizza?

    Come join us! We are going to have a Sounding Board night where anyone can drop in and regale us with their 5 minute talk on any subject. Sometimes it gets old torturing your roommates and co-workers, or perhaps you'd prefer a group of women to listen. We will offer you feedback, if you like, or not, if you would prefer just to practice.

    I'd like to get about 6-8 5 minute talks on the docket, so if you want to give a talk or know someone who does, please let me know!

    Special Feedback Guest will be Kristen Gallagher of Edify Education Design and presenter of "How to "do" Talks and Workshops" at ACT-W Portland.

    WatchKit Workshop

    NOTE: The front door to the building locks at 6pm. We will have someone down there letting people in from 6:00-6:45  or so. Post a message here or tweet at us (@pdx-ios, @aranasaurus, or @mbcharbonneau) if you get there after and no one is down there. Try to get there as close to 6:30 as possible though, as we'll be getting started as close to then as we can to make sure we have time to actually get something built!

    Bring your WatchKit ideas and desire to learn and/or share what you've already learned about Apple's next big thing, just before you can pre-order it!

    We have a project, a simple RoShamBo game (with the addition of Lizard and Spock), which a user can play against the computer on their phone. Here is the repo for it, but it is a work in progress (and probably will be until the day of, if last time is any indicator), though it is pretty much feature-complete at this point. At the workshop we will work together to add WatchKit functionality to the project, including determine exactly what that functionality will be. Bring a laptop (with the current released version of Xcode (Version 6.2 (6C131e)), Swift 1.1, iOS SDK 8.2) and follow along, or do your own customizations!

    There will be ample space for people who just want to hack on their own WatchKit projects and chat with other WatchKit explorers as well. So, feel free to BYO Project!

    Startup Happy Hour @ Esri R&D Center

    Esri Portland R&D Center

    Mapping software leader Esri was a brand new startup back in 1969 and grew into the privately-owned billion dollar business it is today.

    In 2010, Amber Case and Aaron Parecki founded and launched Geoloqi as a Portland startup that provides a location-based services platform on a wide variety of devices. 

    The mutual success and compatibility of these two companies brought a merger in 2012, and Geoloqi became the newest Esri R&D Center, with Amber as Director and Aaron as CTO, doubling in size since then.

    Stop on by the Esri R&D Center here in Portland to meet the folks there, see what they’ve built and are building next, and network with others interested in learning more about the technology that drives the power of Where. 

    If you’re a developer, pick up a free license to mapping apps, APIs, and SDKs here

    As for this Happy Hour, bring your techy curiosity and we’ll bring the food and drinks. See ya there!

Homestead, don’t sharecrop! You’ll learn about ways to empower yourself to own your data, create and publish content on your own site, and only optionally syndicate to third-party silos.

    Code for Portland Hack Night

    Time for another Code for Portland Hack Night!

    The National Day of Civic Hacking (NDoCH) is coming up and we're very excited to get started digging into some truly fantastic community projects.

    We're planning a three day event for NDoCH at the end of the month and would love to get our community started thinking about ideas for projects. If you've got something you'd like to start work on (or are already working on and need help with), please let us know and we'll give you time to present and help you find like-minded civic hackers!

    Please RSVP!

    Please RSVP so that we know how much pizza we'll need!

    Join our meetup group and RSVP for the event here:

    http://www.meetup.com/Code-for-Portland/events/182017672/

    Civic Heroes of all types welcome!

    This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

    Bring a Laptop!

    If you intend on getting any hacking done, it would be wise to bring the tools of the trade.

    If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about for the social and civic good, let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself. We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.

    Esri R&D Center Brand New Office Party!

    Come Celebrate our new Office!

    After Portland startup Geoloqi joined Esri in 2012, our office has grown from 6 to 20 people and our current space didn't fit everyone! This year, we found an awesome new space downtown and moved into a new, permanent location. Now that we're all settled into our new space, we'd love to invite you to join us in celebrating growth, community and all things geo! We'll have Legos, toys, and even a custom-built Settler's of Catan board for you to play! Feel free to bring other board games if you'd like.

    RSVP!

    RSVP on EventBrite so we can make sure we have enough drinks and light snacks (gluten free) for everyone! We are using Eventbrite to track RSVPs, if you know you are coming please reserve a ticket! In addition to celebrating Esri R&D Center Portland's new office, we will be celebrating Geoloqi's 4th year anniversary, as well as both Amber Case's and Patrick Arlt's birthday!

    Who is invited?

    The entire Portland tech community is invited, as well as friends and family of the Esri R&D Center team!

    We have all of you to thank for helping us get where we are today. Special thanks to TiE, PIE, PSF, PDC for funding us, providing mentorship and being patient with our crazy vision this entire time. It's been 4 years since Geoloqi started, and almost 2 since we've been a part of Esri!

    In town for Write the Docs, Monitorama or Webvisions? Feel free to join us as well!

    RSVP on Eventbrite.
