Women Talking Tech
AppNexus 711 SW Alder Street Suite 400 Portland, OR 97205

Introducing PDX's latest tech meetup - Women Talking Tech :heart:

So many of us are building really cool shit at work and in the community - let's share, recognize and applaud our badassery. Through this WTT series, we aim to perpetuate the technical learning and teaching component within our industry. Partnering with local WIT communities we'll meet monthly for 1-2 lightning talks, Q&A, a break, a keynote closer, and more Q&A. Oh, and food/drink. Curated for a technical audience compromised of but not limited to women, transgender and non binary friends.

Community Partner: Lesbians Who Tech

Katie Hughes: Learn you a Hask/Elm For Great Javascript

Alison Stump: Building CSS for React Components with Modular ITCSS

Kris Nova: Explore the under developed and highly important layer of infrastructure underneath cloud native tooling like Kubernetes. We take a technical deep dive into kubicorn, and show how easy it is to get an application up and running with kubicorn:

*Katie is a pun loving web developer at AppNexus, a casual comic book reader, and is hyped af for fall. @katieslynnh

*Alison - coming soon

*Kris is a Senior Developer Advocate at Microsoft. She likes unicorns, whiskey, writing distributed cloud native infrastructure tools, and kissing girls. @kris_nova

PDXNode – Hack Night! 💻

Welcome to the PDXNode Hack Night!

What is a PDXNode Hack Night?

PDXNode Hack Nights are your opportunity to enjoy a low-pressure JavaScript-centric environment where you shouldn't feel like you're supposed to do anything. First and foremost–just come and enjoy yourself. The night is yours: hang, hack, learn, or do whatever you’re interested in doing. 🙌

Depending on the size and interests of our attending group, we have various paths the night could go, and may or may not attempt some of the following:

Map Ctrl-H into Hackerspace Regions

The hackerspace will be mapped into 'regions', and you can feel free to gravitate towards whichever one suits your interest!

• A place for beginners who want to get going with node for the first time. • A place for people who want to work on their own projects (eg. projects you want to do outside of work, but need to find the time). • A place for people to just hang out and connect. • A place for people to work on projects in groups!

'Unconference'-style Team Hacks

For team-hackers, we'll have a board up and sticky-notes available available at the beginning of the night. Anyone can feel free to write the name and/or description of something they'd like to hack on with other people–and others who're interested can feel free to go to that region and join in!

End of Night Show and Tell

There will be a list available to write your name, or team's name down on to give a quick show and tell of your projects at the end of the night. We're pumped to see what you've been working on!

Some general stuff to remember:

Help is available!

There will be seasoned Nodesters ready and available to help anyone with questions or advice in any of the hack-zones: beginners, solo, and group projects. Feel free to reach out and ask at any time throughout the evening.

Do what you want to do

Above all, we hope for this to be an easy-going event for people to do what they want to do with the time we have. Make the time awesome, it's yours. 😎

Code of Conduct

PDXNode continues to abide by its Code of Conduct, and we ask everyone to commit to keeping to it in order for all of us to have a safe, fun, and amazing time.

Wahoo! See you then! 🎉🎉 💻 🎉🎉
