Welcome members of Hack The People Portland!

We are a group of makers, hackers, coders, programmers, and technologists that want to contribute to the tech community by providing a place to learn from others.

Our meetups are intimate events designed to help create relationships between junior and senior people in various tech fields. Hack The People is looking for both mentees and mentors to attend our events. The events will focus around lightning talks about your pet projects.

Lightning talks, you ask?

Yes, each participant gets about 2 minutes to talk about anything they're working on, problems they've come across, or even just seedling ideas in their head, with an additional 4 minutes of time for people in the group to offer assistance in the form of new insights, perspectives, solutions, or anything else they can offer(please note that we don't allow soliciting/buy-my-app type of talks). It's like having a whole group of mentors to listen to what you have to say with an aim to help.

After the lightning talks round, we will head across the way to Bailey's to have a drink and chat a little less formally.

Please be punctual as we start on time and move through each portion with a minimum of dilly-dallying.

Here is what you can expect at this meetup:

- Refreshments/Pizza
- Keynote speaker: Heidi Tretheway, Marketing Communications Director at Urban Airship, talking about "The Rule Of Subtraction"
- Lightning Talks
- Drinks/Networking @ Bailey's

This event has a limited number of seats, so don't miss out and make sure toreserve your spot!
