Are you a Professional POC in the Portland area? It’s time to make some new connections with other professionals!

Our group, Blacks in Technology - PDX (bit-PDX), wants to see you on October 1st at New Relic for our networking event with food, drinks, fellowship, and brilliant speakers.

Kelsey Hightower has worn every hat possible throughout his career in tech but most enjoys leadership roles focused on making things happen and shipping software. Kelsey is a strong open source advocate focused on building simple tools that make people smile. When he is not slinging Go code, you can catch him giving technical workshops covering everything from programming and system administration, to his favorite Linux distro of the month.

All POCs are welcome and encouraged to attend our inperson events! This is an inclusive event for all professionals in the greater Portland area.
