    Portland Tech Diversity: This is How You Do It

    Urban Airship

    ~ In partnership with Urban Airship and Uncorked Studios, Code Fellows presents ~ Diversity in Tech: How do you do it... and why?

    At this event, leaders from PDX tech companies that have had success in diversifying their teams will discuss how they've done so and why. They'll talk about where they source candidates, the resulting company culture, and why a diverse team matters to their bottom line. We'll hear from Planet Argon, Uncorked Studios, Free Geek, and Urban Airship.

    After the discussion, get your elevator pitches ready for Flash Intros! This is where job seekers get two minutes to connect with CTOs and hiring managers from the Portland tech community. Bring resumes and/or business cards.

    Space is limited, and registration is required. Doors will open at 5:50, with the program starting shortly after 6 pm. http://techdiversity-how-why.eventbrite.com/?aff=calagator

    PDX Big Data Discussion Group

    Urban Airship

    "No talks. You may opt to take up to 60 seconds to complain about Big Data. One paper per month, no obligation to read it."

    We'll start by letting anyone who wants to take up to a minute to tell us what they've been doing with data lately.

    This month's paper is Using Psycho-Acoustic Models and Self-Organizing Maps to Create a Hierarchical Structuring of Music by Musical Styles. by Rauber et al. Read it or don't - the goal is just to have something to start conversations. "Did you read the paper?" will do nicely.

    Mention @PDXBigData on Twitter with the link to the full paper to suggest papers for future sessions.

    There will be food.
