Portland Tech Meetup

    Looking forward to seeing everybody tonight. I finally got my multifamilyrent.com startup posted on kickstarter. I am using this as an opportunity to reach out to my target audience. I look forward to exchanging ideas tonight.

    Hoping to meet some ios or smartphone developers who are into the outdoors and might want to help with a project.

    So excited for this event! So sad I can't win the door prize... C'est la vie!

    Hey there PDX Tech! I'm excited to attend this event and meet everyone. I wanted to bring to everyone's attention a social happy hour happening the day after this one! Its called the Happy Hour for Intel® RealSense™ Technology. Intel reps will bring and showcase the latest and greatest 3D camera tech and you can learn about the newest in the human-computer interaction space. Grab a beer, have some food, network -- it's going to be very laid back and social. First attendees will leave with an external battery pack and t-shirts. Plus, we'll have some challenges for tablet giveaways -- and it's free! All you have to do is register here: http://bit.ly/BMAPartners

    Let me know if you have any questions.

      This looks like a great event! Thank you for posting it, Ricardo! I'd be there if I weren't going to be in Seattle for their tech meetup.

    I'm interested in attending, as is my high school son. We both are new to coding, and I'm wanting to know if this would be appropriate for us or not. It sounds really interesting, but I'm not sure whether his age or our beginner status would make it a bad fit.

      I agree with Mr. Grimm. Please join us!
