    This is our monthly meetup for the Portland QS community where we get together and talk about what we are working on and learning from our data and self-experiments. There won't be formal talks, but if you want to show others what you are working on, there will be a projector on hand. Food and drinks are potluck style. If you can, bring something that you can share with others. It doesn't need to be elaborate. A simple snack is great. Looking forward to seeing what you are up to!

    We're starting a new monthly informal meetup for the Portland QS community. The idea is for us to get together and talk about what we are working on and learning from our data and self-experiments. There won't be formal talks, but if you want to show others what you are working on, there will be a projector on hand. Many of us will be fresh from the 2018 Quantified Self Conference (qs18.quantifiedself.com) and there will be much to talk about. What were the most interesting projects? What inspired us? What new questions do we have? Food and drinks are going to be potluck style. If you can, bring something that you can share with others. It doesn't need to be elaborate. A simple snack is great. Looking forward to seeing what you are up to!

Do you have a personal self-tracking story to share? Please let us know in your RSVP. You can let the three prime questions guide your presentation: What did you do? How did you do it? What did you learn?
