    Startup PDX - STARTUP PDX - REBOOT PARTY - Kicking off a New Season!

    Centrl Office

    Join us as we gather to reboot our Startup PDX community!

    We're taking this community from a former place of just beerhall networking...to becoming a hub for Startup Professionals and Startup Entrepreneurs to level-up...together! 

    Our vision is to support the Portland Startup ecosystem, by being a place for Inspiration, Knowledge, and Networking. We're already lining up some amazing talks and meetups for the next few months.

    Come to this first casual kickoff event! Learn more about the vision of this community. Get some FREE beer...and network with other Startup Professionals. Much thanks to Centrl Office for being our new community sponsor, providing our venue and beer!! RSVP soon as there's limited space for this event. 

    And, in the spirit of Startup Happy Hour, we'll always be continuing the after party for people wanting to connect even deeper at 10 Barrel starting around 7:45pm.

    Make sure to find me and say hello. Short blurb about me: I'm currently a co-founder of both a venture backed startup and a bootstrapped startup. I'd love to hear what you're working on! 

    Also, find me if you want to get involved in helping with this community!

    PIE and Built Oregon Community Hour[s]

    Centrl Office

    After a great beta test, we're ready to take this thing into production. PIE and Built Oregon would like to invite you to our first Community Hour[s]. This will be an ongoing gathering of all the people who make up the entrepreneurial fabric in our community. There is no agenda, panel, or discussion. It’s a time to relax and network with old friends and new connections. As much as we all love technology, relationships are built through personal connections and shared stories. So we hope you’ll join us for a few minutes, or a couple hours at the CENTRL Office Main Bar on September 6th from 5-7pm. (Ending at 7pm sharp!)

    See you there!

    Hack Oregon Community Summit, Project Season Kick-Off and Design Thinking Session

    Centrl Office

    Hack Oregon Community Summit and Project Season Kick-Off

    A Design Thinking Session with Developers, Designers, Government, Industry and Donuts

    Hack Oregon opens its doors twice a year to assemble interdisciplinary focus teams of volunteers to build open-data resources on important themes in Oregon. Our projects take roughly three months to complete, and there are staggered start times for different roles within our build cycle.

    This is a special event to brainstorm goals, build relationships, and create a shared vision for the next cycle of projects.

    At the Summit we'll introduce new themes for projects, assemble teams, and collaborate with fantastic context experts and mentors through guided design thinking sessions.

    We won't be coding this afternoon, but it's a exciting space for cross-pollination between disciplines while we take the afternoon to collaborate, plan, and constructively brainstorm.

    Some of you will get started hacking the following week, and others we'll see 6-8 weeks later when we start the visual and storytelling phase.

    Everyone is welcome, and we can't wait to meet you!

    PS: Showing up to the Summit is not a commitment to volunteer, but fair warning, after you experience this you might just step through the looking glass and disappear into the data rabbit hole :)

    Kindly RSVP at https://donutsummit.eventbrite.com

    To be the best prepared, preregister and get in our volunteer hopper at hackoregon.org

    SnappyData - Real Time Operational Analytics with Apache Spark!

    Description 

    Apache Spark has come a long ways since it began as a faster batch oriented map-reduce solution for Hadoop.  With support for streaming, machine learning and most recently SQL, Spark aspires to become a player in the realm of real time analytics at scale. 

    However, much of its underpinnings remain batch oriented and unsuited for highly concurrent OLAP workloads. 

    In this talk, we will describe how we are innovating and renovating Spark's core underpinnings to make it suitable for real time operational analytics, helping create a unified platform that supports row and column data, high concurrency and approximate query processing at scale.

    Agenda

    6:00 – 6:15 Welcome and Networking

    6:15 – 7:15 Presentation by Jags Ramnarayan

    7:15 – 8:00 Food, Drinks & Discussion

    A chat with Saul Colt, the Smartest Man in the World

    Centrl Office

    Well, it's been quite a May for Portland. First, President Obama swung by. And now, the Smartest Man in the World, Saul Colt will be in town, too. 

    Only Saul will be way more accessible.


    Who is Saul? In his career he has been named as one of the iMEDIA 25: Internet Marketing Leaders & Innovators as well as been called one of Canada’s best community builders/experiential marketers. NYT Best selling author and Internet Pioneer Chris Brogan once referred to Saul as “exactly who you want representing your company” and that message has been echoed by media properties ranging from Inc to Forbes Magazine. 

    In a previous life Saul was the first international employee of Zipcar and the person responsible for launching Zipcar into the Canadian marketplace, was a key person in the growth of FreshBooks.com (The #1 Cloud Accounting service for Small Business Owners) and even knows what it is like to work for a large corporation from his time in a leadership role at Rogers Communications. On top of all that Saul is also a Professional Speaker and Consultant specializing in Social Media, Customer Service, Community Building and Word of Mouth Marketing. 

    Whether you're an early stage startup or a well established business, Saul's unique perspective will have you rethinking how you spread the word about your company. Even if you don't care about marketing, he's just a great and entertaining speaker.
