PDX PHP OSCON 2007 Recap

OSCON 2007 is nothing but a fond memory. Almost.

For those that attended and want to participate in a post mortem on the event, the PDX PHP group is hosting an OSCON 2007 recap at CubeSpace on August 14.

As many of you know PDXPHP had a booth at OSCON. We met lots of interesting folks and learned about many intriguing projects. Come down to our August meeting and share what you learned at OSCON or learn what was shared at OSCON.

The Portland PHP Users Group is a community forum for people to share, meet and learn about PHP and Open Source technologies. The group strives to be a valuable resource for anyone interested in PHP regardless of their skill level or background. Through sharing and communication we believe we can foster a creative and successful community of PHP developers.

Portland Web Innovators discuss OpenID, September 5

Portland Web Innovators has just announced the topic for their September get together, “Digital Identity and OpenID.”

Hosted at Jive Software, the event will feature Scott Kveton.

Digital identity promoter Scott Kveton will talk about his experience with OpenID and the future of digital identity on the web. He worked at JanRain (creators of MyOpenID) as CEO and helped it reach Business 2.0’s list of Startups to Watch. Now Scott consults and speaks on identity and open source.

To RSVP, visit Upcoming. For more information on Portland Web Innovators, see the PDXWI site.

BarCamp Portland gathering August 23

The folks who organize the BarCamp Portland event, Dawn Foster and Raven Zachary, also hold a series of informal meetups throughout the year.

The Portland meetups are intended to be a little less intense and more frequent than a full BarCamp Portland event. The intent is to get a group of cool people interested in technology together to chat over drinks on the fourth Thursday of every month. Anyone working in high-tech is welcome to attend. Conversations usually range from wikis to open source to blogs to who knows what!

Interested in attending? See Upcoming or RSVP at the BarCamp Portland site.

Converge on Inverge 2007

I’m not really sure what this is. Even after reading this:

inVerge 2007 is an immersive 2 to 4-day experience starting on Sept. 6th in Portland, OR USA that focuses on emerging interactive convergence [invergence] dynamics manifesting as various global business trends including: media platform integration, brand integration, collective intelligence, participatory culture and mass collaboration.

But it has plenty of buzzwords, and that’s always good. Isn’t it?

In any case, it’s happening in Portland, September 6. And paying $495 will surely lead you to a deeper understanding of the concept than I’ve been able to garner with my quick gloss and snarky comments.

Get more information on Inverge 2007 by visiting the site or reading the Invergence blog.
