    PDX Women in Tech June Happy Hour


    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-june-happy-hour-tickets-45973460859] is required to gain entry to this event

    Join us for happy hour at Simple on June 19th.

    Each one of us has a rich set of values that guide our lives. At this month’s happy hour, we’d like to encourage everyone to think about the convictions you have and what your workplace does or can do to support you in expressing your values.

    While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase three women in our community.

    An employee of Simple will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities.

    Padmashree Koneti, Sr. Director of Operations and Chief of Staff to CPO at Puppet, will tell us how to speak your mind with conviction.

    Molly Lebowitz, IT Transformation Business Analyst, will give her talk: "Positively Powerful - Building Bridges @ Work"

    During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

    An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

    Table Topics to help break the ice.

    A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.


    4:30 p.m. - Doors open/Networking

    5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

    6:30 p.m. - Event ends

    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.

    IoT Hackathon

    Join us the weekend of Dec. 2nd-4th for our very first IoT Hackathon! The theme is Sustainable Cities; we are looking for ways to minimize the required inputs of energy, water and food. On a smaller scale, how can we preserve energy and prevent wasteful consumption in the home and/or at work?

    We are thrilled to be partnering up with Intel to bring you the Intel Edison hardware kits to play with and build cool apps. Other sponsors for the event include Simple, Airbnb, Mozilla, Metal Toad, Donut.js, and PolySync.

    The goal of the hackathon is to learn new programming skills, have fun, and work in teams to build sustainability solutions. We want to provide a space for people of all backgrounds to learn about IoT, work on a new portfolio project, or spend all weekend tinkering with hardware. All levels are welcome! You will be working in teams of 3-5 to come up with the next great solution for Sustainable Cities!


    Developers, designers, and all those interested in the Internet of Things should attend. All skill levels welcome.
