    Join us June 9th and 10th for a 2 day hiring event!

    Polyglot programmers, QA's, Interaction and UX Designers join ThoughtWorks June 9th and 10th for your chance to be the next generation of ThoughtLeaders. If you are interested in meeting us, but don't see your exact title here, we would still love to speak with you!

    Saturday, June 9th: 9am interactive sessions about what it's like to be a ThoughtWorker. We'll also discuss the work and patterns that have emerged from the Technology Radar created by luminaries here at ThoughtWorks.

    12:30pm: Jeff Wishie, our Director of ThoughtWorks' Social Impact Program . Jeff, who is hot off his latest trip to East Africa, will be sharing our company's experiences and endeavors towards creating socially-meaningful software. Specifically, he'll describe the efforts we're making with mission-driven clients like UNICEF, Democracy Now!, and the Grameen Foundaiton.

    1:30pm: After lunch, come check out our Open Source Code jam - and for good reason, because for every person that commits code during this session, ThoughtWorks will make a donation to Free Geek Portland! This is the chance to meet up and learn from fellow geeks as well as get your hands dirty in some code for a good cause.

    Not technical or interested in code jamming? No worries - we'll still be hosting talks from different ThoughtWorkers and doing interviews throughout the afternoon. We're eager to hear your story and to share ours with you. Come join us and hear what the ThoughtWorks revolution is all about!

    Dev Nation
    ruby html javascript

    Ace Hotel

    In early 2009, several developers from Relevance and Viget Labs got together and starting talking about technical conferences. As we discussed our past experiences at regional, national, and international events, we began to realize something: large conferences are wonderful for a lot of things, but we wanted something that met a different set of goals. We came up with Developer Day, which was designed to:

    • Build lasting relationships among local peers
    • Bridge distinct technical communities

    After a year of Developer Days, however, we decided a new look was in order, and thus was born DevNation. We've still got the same ideals, but we feel that the DevNation name better reflects that vision (and it's easier to Google!)


    The general pattern for a large conference runs something like this: you fly to a city, go to the event, have a great time, meet lots of great people, and fly home. More often than not, you don't see those people again until the next big conference, and that's a problem. We wanted our event to be different, so it's intentionally local. Speakers and attendees are overwhelmingly local to the conference, so when you meet someone doing something cool, you can connect with them a week later for lunch without a problem.


    Sure, there are events that draw a wide range of developers (e.g., OSCON), but even then people tend to segregate; the Pythonists go to their sessions, the Rubyists to theirs, and the PHP devs to theirs. By having only one track, we give everyone the opportunity to see what's happening in other communities.
