Cityscope presents Detour/Dérive
Dealers Supply Parcel 1 North

Six participants will present their findings from Detour/Dérive, an urban experiment presented by Project Cityscope, the non-profit organization of Works Partnership Architecture. The participants have engaged in separate walks by choosing a bus line to ride and getting off at a stop or stops they find intriguing. The task was to walk, document/record, and reflect within a 24-hour period. The aim of this project is to explore, project, and/or (mis)interpret narratives of the city that do not occur to us as critical to the urban landscape.

FutureTalk Thought Leaders Panel + Happy Half-Hour
New Relic

Mobile Strategy for Today and Tomorrow

A mobile thought leaders panel moderated by Rick Turoczy

› Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Just a few short years ago, most organizations didn’t even have a mobile app. Today mobile has infiltrated virtually every sector of industry and mobile e-commerce generates over half of all e-commerce sales. Is it important for every organization to have a mobile strategy?

To address this question, New Relic is kicking off 2015 with our first ever FutureTalks PDX speaker panel! This event will bring together local thought leaders in the mobile app space to discuss the strategies and challenges their organizations face in building and managing high performing mobile apps or services, and the teams that support them.

These visionaries include:

  • Jonathan Karon, Mobile Engineering Manager, New Relic
  • Sasha Mace, Director of Mobile, Simple
  • Michael Richardson, Co-Founder and Director of Product, Urban Airship
  • Sridhar Solur, Managing Director, Next Gen Computing- Wearables, IOT

Panelists will be asked to reflect on the challenges and key strategies they employ today, and how they see mobile strategy evolving for their organizations in the future. If you have a specific question(s) that you would like us to consider posing to our speakers, please email those to [email protected].

› Doors will open at 5:30 for a 30-minute networking happy hour! The food, beer and drinks are provided by Bellagios and New Relic. The presentation will begin promptly at 6p.

› FutureTalk is brought to you by New Relic in collaboration with TAO

Hack Oregon Spring Buildathon
Revolution Hall

Hack Oregon Spring Buildathon!

Presented with The Oregonian and OregonLive

What is it?

Believe it or not, Hack Oregon actually doesn’t really do a lot of Hackathons. We form specialized teams to build software and open data stories for important themes in Oregon, and work and iterate incrementally over months to create a product.

The “Buildathon” is the one day where we open up our project teams for guest contributors that want to be part of the magic and build something amazing, but might not have the time to participate in our months-long project season.

What’s the goal?

The Buildathon is a production sprint. We’ve laid the groundwork to do research, visualizations, and data storytelling quickly, and we need your help to bring our projects to the next level. Be prepared to make friends and be an instant part of our Hack Oregon family!

How can I get involved?

By joining our sprint, you’ll be placed with a team that needs extra hands on deck in your particular skill set. We’re working toward a public demo day in June, where you can proudly present alongside your team.

Here are the two ways to join the event:

  1. We have open roles for experienced developers, creatives, and multimedia storytellers on each team. If you'd like to join one of the project teams for the day, we'll need to match you with the team that needs your skills most and give you an onboarding package. Fill out this inquiry form along with your eventbrite RSVP, and we will be in touch with you shortly!
  2. If you are a new to coding or want to contribute in a non-tech way, we have a highly appreciated team working on research, fact-checking, and user testing. No inquiry form required, just go ahead and RSVP for "Research Team". We can't wait to meet you!

Project Teasers

Food Insecurity: “Oregon Hunger Equation”

Why does Oregon consistently have one of the highest reported rates of food insecurity in the country? We’re analyzing links between regional cost of living, benefit programs, and local school districts to solve for systemic causes of hunger at home.

Campaign Finance: “Behind the Curtain”

Hack Oregon has the only machine readable database for local campaign finance in the country. We’re adding in new meta-data and working on fascinating high level view of influence and money in Oregon’s election cycles.

Urban Development: “Plot PDX”

Data can tell us a lot about our neighborhoods. We’re building maps that take a non-typical approach to hard truths about urban growth, concentration of wealth, and the digital divide.

Agriculture: “Crop Compass”

In the Pacific Northwest, we live in one of the most rich biospheres in the world, with global demand for Oregon grown products. We have the ability to produce a wide range of food in Oregon, but we’re far from self-sustaining. How do our economic and environmental factors work together to shape our food system?

Education: "Programming for Progress"

Across Oregon, some schools are lucky enough to have free or low cost summer school programming and/or afterschool programming. How much of a difference can that programming make for early literacy, attendance, and future academic success of students? What does could this say about Oregon’s statewide performance, and especially those districts facing higher poverty?
