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.

Meetings

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.

Speakers

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

Job Postings

Local companies can post job openings here for free.  Please contact us to get your job posted.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
