    Once again, we are hosting a HackerLab event in Portland, OR! This will be a four-hour, hands-on, strategically guided lab aimed at people new to JavaScript to introduce Esri Leaflet, which makes it a pleasure to drop ArcGIS services into most everyone’s favorite Open Source web mapping library.

    This is a BYOM, BYOI, BYOA, and BYOD event: bring your own machine (seriously, we don't have any extras), ideas, apps and data. Yeah.

    Oh and here is a list of the required materials:

    1. Computer

    2. Smart text editor (think Notepad++, Sublime) installed

    3. Local web server running (check out this guide if you need help setting it up)

    4. ArcGIS for Developers or ArcGIS Organizational account

    PDXGo Talk Night: Go without the operating system

    Esri PDX R&D Center

    Gather with fellow Gophers for an evening of Talks and discussion around Golang! All experience levels welcome!

    Schedule:

    Hang out and chat with other Gophers until about 6:30

    Talk: Go without the operating system by Bernerd Schaefer

    Go lets you to compile your program into stand-alone binaries which can be safely shared across systems without worrying about a missing dependency. But there's one thing even a stand-alone executable depends on: the operating system. What if you could remove that dependency, too?

    AtmanOS is a project built to explore that question. It allows you to compile ordinary Go programs and run them on cloud providers like Amazon's EC2, without a traditional operating system.

    Please RSVP on the meetup page so we know what to set up!

    Continue discussion over beers at Baileys!

    Thanks to Esri R&D for hosting us once again!
