    Purpose: 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.

    The Kinds of Uptime Worth Wanting

    Squarespace PDX

    Consistency, Durability, Scalability, and Availability and your data stores: a review of various distributed database topologies, and a discussion of what problems they are best suited to solve.

    Today's admin and SRE teams may find themselves afloat in a sea of acronyms and carefully worded promises when they consider how to scale their database layer without sacrificing critical uptime and consistency guarantees.

    Developed to provide a North Star for our own teams when they look at scaling any particular workflow, come listen to our presentation 'On The Kinds of Uptime Worth Wanting'. Robust discussion and refreshments to follow.

    Pizza and Refreshments will be provided.
