Need some socializing? Winter Coders’ Social and Portland Silverlight User Group gatherings tonight

If you’re a coder of any ilk, you won’t want to miss the Winter Coders’ Social, the regular gathering of all coding types here in town. But tonight, there’s also a Silverlight gathering that could prove worthwhile for motion designers and UX folk.

Now, I know if may be difficult to pry yourself away from your space heaters and heat registers, this evening. But despite the drop in temperatures, Portland’s event schedule remains chock full. Tonight, there are a couple of really cool events that make it worth bearing the chilly weather.

If you’re a coder of any ilk, you won’t want to miss the Winter Coders’ Social, the regular gathering of all coding types here in town. And tonight, there’s also a Silverlight gathering that could prove worthwhile for motion designers and UX folk.

It’s the third annual Winter Coders’ Social, tonight, at NedSpace Old Town.

This is a fun, free annual event that members of many local user groups get together at to mingle, eat and play games. This is the third time the event’s been held and it’s been lots of fun every time.

Sound interesting? It’s potluck so throw something together.

More interested in motion design than code? Well, the inaugural kickoff of the new Portland Silverlight User Group takes place tonight.

This is the first meeting of the Portland Silverlight User Group – our keynote speaker will be Vertigo CEO Scott Stanfield. Scott will discuss how Vertigo uses Silverlight, Blend, SketchFlow and a handful of development techniques (“Blendability”, MVVM and View State Manager) to enable our design and development teams to move quickly and build great apps like the Winter Olympics, Sunday Night Football, and Hard Rock International.

The gathering will take place at the Fiserv Cafe in Hillsboro.
