Please RSVP via Eventbrite for this event!
Join us for an evening with Chris Rieth from Socrata, who has spent his career in public service as a steadfast proponent of public sector innovation, focused on putting data to work to help governments make and share progress using evidence-based policy decisions, engage citizens in new and exciting ways, and leverage technology to improve collaboration and connect stakeholders.
HUB Happy Hour
In addition to our FutureTalk with Chris, Hopworks Urban Brewery will be providing the beer - a re-launch of Gigabit IPA! Gigabit IPA was introduced in 2010 as part of a campaign surrounding the Google Fiber initiative. Hopworks is re-launching Gigabit IPA now because Portland is one of nine metro areas being considered for Google Fiber. Find out more here!
The first 100 attendees get a free bottle of Hopworks Gigabit IPA!
Doors will open at 5:30p. The networking happy hour sponsored by Hopworks will kick off with a special announcement at 6p, and includes free beer, food and drinks provided by HUB, Bellagios and New Relic. There will also be a short TAO Dev Com BIG DATA event primer featuring Allen Grimm, Data Scientist at Cloudability and Sovolve. The presentation will begin right at 7p.
Chris works on Socrata’s GovStat initiative and recently served as a top advisor to Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley where he helped evolve and build on Maryland’s StateStat performance management solution. StateStat is used by the State of Maryland to manage the vast majority of its agencies, budget, and workforce. StateStat is also credited with significant achievements in outcomes, such as a 24.5 percent reduction in violent crime, and the nation’s number one rating for Maryland’s public school system.
