WhereCamp PDX

This October 17th-19th local geo-geeks of all stripes will be gathering for the very first WhereCamp PDX. WhereCamp is an event that started in the Bay Area in 2007 to continue conversations from the Where 2.0 conference. Legion of Tech is organizing a Portland version to show off the amazing, fun geographic technology activity we have. This is not just an event for specialists: we would like anyone who is interested in the intersection of people, place, and technology to participate.

You can find out more on the WhereCamp PDX blog, and RSVP and find more event details on Upcoming. We are also looking for sponsors.

Summer Coders’ Social

Here’s another great event coming up: Portland’s multi-user group coders’ social is back for summer, with a picnic August 3rd at Laurelhurst Park. It’s happening 11am-5pm at picnic area E.

The winter event was a fun board and card game meetup at CubeSpace, and Sam Keen and the other organizers have planned a family-friendly barbecue to follow up. Mozilla is sponsoring burgers and hotdogs (plus a vegan version), and the rest is potluck. RSVP with your side dish of choice if you’ll be there.
