    Demolicious - June 2024
    free

    June Demolicious will be at the new westside UpStart Collective location!

    :::::::Please use the form below to apply to pitch for JUNE:::::::::::

    APPLY TO PITCH HERE: https://forms.gle/sx81RaT6Nuqj9sWR7

    Demolicious is back! This monthly pitch event brings together founders and the community to learn about what is being built here and around Portland.

    How this all works: If you are a founder, you will apply to pitch here. Don't worry. "Apply" simply means you want to pitch, but there's no real competitive process to be accepted. We just want to see what you're working on before we put you in front of a room full of people.

    You will be given 3 minutes to pitch at the event.

    The audience will be given a number to text and vote for their favorite one. The one with the most votes will go home with the Demolicious Championship belt.

    The belt is not for you to keep as you will have to come back and "defend" it. However, you will be allowed to put your startup sticker (if applicable) on the belt for all to see and to live on forever in infamy!

    We will post the projects/companies that will be pitching a week prior to the event. Which means you have until then to fill out the form.

    Teams Pitching: TBA

    Will you be the next founder to pitch!?!

    RainSec - PDX Information Security Meetup
    free

    Lucky Lab Brew Pub

    RainSec is an informal group of like-minded security professionals who meet to network and discuss topics of interest in a non-work, non-vendor setting.

    While our target audience is experienced information security professionals, this is a public event open to any interested parties. If you have a friend or colleague who might benefit, please pass an invite along.

    Follow @PDXRainSec on Twitter for last minute updates.

    Because COVID-19 still presents significant risk to some members of our community, we ask that you observe the following and make your own risk assessment decision regarding your attendance:

    • If outdoor seating is available and weather permits, we will be outside.
    • If you are feeling sick, stay home!
    • If you've had a recent COVID exposure, stay home!
    • If you are not vaccinated, stay home!
    • If you are otherwise considered high risk for COVID, please stay home until you feel it is safe to gather in large groups (20-40 people). We don't want to be the cause of anyone's illness or death.

    You can also find us on Meetup.com and Google Groups.

    Portland Accessibility and User Experience Meetup (PDX A11Y UX) - Design and Research Careers through a neurodiverse lens

    Online

    Many neurodivergent professionals work in the fields of accessibility and user experience. Yan Vishnepolsky joins us today to discuss his career as a neurodiverse user researcher. He will talk about aspects like living abroad as a UX professional, launching a podcast, and the benefits and challenges of being neurodiverse in design tech.

    Event begins at 6:00pm; join early starting at 5:45pm for networking.

    Agenda

    • 5:45–6:00pm Networking
    • 6:00–6:15pm Introductions & announcements
    • 6:15–7:00pm Presentation
    • 7:00–7:30pm Q&A and discussion
    • 7:30–7:45pm Wrap up

    About the presenter

    Yan's family knew from an early age that he was neurodiverse. As such, he attended BOCES Gifted Special Education, a program in upstate New York for neurodivergent children, throughout most of his school years. A couple of years after college, he launched a UX agency in India and lived there for nine years. While in India, Yan learned Hindi and Indian culture, teaching him firsthand the impact of different perspectives. Also in India, he met his wife, an Iranian expat studying as a pharmacist. After marriage, Yan moved back to the US, where he pursued a career specific to user research. In the last few years, Yan has been particularly interested in the impact of AI on the future of user research work (and vice versa). Last year, he started speaking publicly about the impact of neurodiversity on his career.

    Accommodation requests

    If you have any accommodation requests, please contact us in advance of the event to discuss.
