Join Orchestrate for a celebration of the life and death of databases, October 16

If you’re interested in getting early access to a private beta from one of Portland’s most promising young startups, you’re in luck. And there may be a beverage and some food in it for you as well. Orchestrate—which made headlines earlier this year by raising $3 million in seed funding—is ready to allow Portland developers into its private beta. And Orchestrate is throwing a party to celebrate.

The gathering, dedicated to celebrating “the life and death of databases,” will be held Wednesday, October 16 at Kell’s. Festivities start around 6:30PM, upstairs.

Developers rejoice! For the end of managing databases is nigh. You are cordially invited to join us in a celebration of the life – and the imminent death – of databases as you know them.

A wake and celebratory service will be held in the Ceili Ballroom at Kells Irish Restaurant on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. Led by Antony Falco, CEO of Orchestrate.io, and Adam DuVander, Developer Communications Director at SendGrid, we’ll reflect on the life of infrastructure and databases as we once knew them, and raise our glasses to a future without them.

What does Orchestrate do, exactly? Well, here’s their pitch from PIE Demo Day:

Sound interesting? Make sure to join them Wednesday night. All attendees receive early access to the Orchestrate API. And I’ll be super interested to see what you wind up building with Orchestrate.
