We are the COWPU.  This is our meetup website.  We are a group of Web Folk hailing from Bend, Oregon and beyond.  We are comprised of people who call themselves any and all of the following:

  • Web Developer
  • Programmer
  • Engineer
  • SEO
  • SEM
  • Brogrammer
  • Ninja
  • Unicorn Lover
  • and more

Everyone is welcome to come hang with us, nerd cred is not required, just a bit of internet steez.


We typically meet once a month, on the last Wednesday of the month.  Stay tuned to the blog though for information on the next meeting, as we tend to be slackers at time and don’t get meetings scheduled.


If you have a topic you’d like to give a talk on, let us know!  Fill out the contact form or tweet at us: @cowpu or @timmycrawford

    "Apparently my CC had expired, so they didn't auto renew my Meetup.com fees. Thus the resignation notice.  Personally I'm not sure if COWPU is alive or not... I am working on bringing Bend Hack night back to life though...."
