    Coffee w/ Co-Founders @ Urban Grind

    The next meetup will be at Urban Grind Coffee Shop. We'll take the corner area just near the front door.

    The format is pretty laid back. Come by, grab a cup of coffee, and network with other business owners who are working on incredible projects. We can't wait to hear what you're working on!

    About Coffee w/ Co-Founders: As a business owner you are faced with many challenges. You're forced to make decisions every day that could make or break your business. Coffee w/ Co-Founders is a way to network with other Entrepreneurs to allow free flowing information with the intent to collaborate and help each other. So often we're challenged and there's very little we can do to express our challenges with the people we work with or the people we care about. Think of Coffee w/ Co-Founders as your own personal support group for business owners. We're all here to help!

    Coffee w/ Co-Founders IV

    Coffee w/ Co-Founders was an event created to give Founders a venue to talk about challenges, issues, and what's working. It's a way to network and build on the ecosystem that makes Portland an incredible place to start a business.

    This is completely informal. Come by, drink coffee, hang out, but most of all, have fun meeting new people who are passionate about what they're working on!

    Commit! PDX: Morning Hackfest @Urban Grind

    A small, informal group of hackers that meet in the morning to code and chat over coffee. Our goal is to commit at least once before we leave, or help someone else with their commit. Show up late, leave early, or just stop on your way and say hi; it's all cool.

    All languages, technologies, and levels of expertise are welcome.

    Drupalcon Portland 2010 Proposal Planning Meeting

    Meeting to discuss possible venues, themes, etc. for a proposal for Drupalcon 2010. It's due March 1st, so this is a very last minute thing, but still worth a try.

    Drupal (drupal.org) is a Content Management System, with powerful modularity. The regular Drupal Meetup is the 2nd Wednesday of every month at OpenSourcery.

    Calagator mini code sprint
    ruby rails

    NOTICE: Unlike usual sprints, this would be at noon, not 10m, and at UGNW, not CubeSpace.

    I'd like to have a mini code sprint this weekend. Everyone is welcome, no programming experience required, although it'd be useful.

    UGNW is near the Streetcar, so getting there even in bad weather should work okay.

    We can talk about what we want to do with recurring events, the with_my_events branch, supporting multiple regions, supporting multiple instances, and supporting categories. We may even get some coding done too. :)

    RSVP on Upcoming today!

    "No Pitch" Coffee

    One of the worst parts about networking are the individuals that use the events to pitch their products and services. We all know that is part of the deal when networking but it can be highly annoying. Because the focus of this site is on peer advice between small business owners, PortlandSmallBusiness.com is starting a series of weekly "No Pitch" coffee networking events around town. These are intended to be very informal meetings. You show up, order your coffee and you talk with other small business owners. I plan to alternate between coffee shops around inner Portland and if it gets too big, I'll find a bigger space.

    Calagator Mid-Week Code Sprint

    I've heard some interest in holding a mid-week code sprint next week, and also some interest in more evening meetings. So, next Thursday, in the evening, we're sprinting away. We can fix bugs and maybe add tagging. Good times will be had by all.
