And, besides, I’d like the chance to meet you. You’re one of my favorite readers. (You’re really my very favorite, but don’t tell the others.)
Looking forward to seeing you.
Ignite Portland is an event for sharing burning ideas. And sharing them really, really quickly. Just about any topic will do, as long as it’s interesting. To RSVP, visit Ignite Portland on Upcoming. For more information on the event, visit Ignite Portland.
This organization has two primary functions: first, we organize key community events like BarCampPortland and Ignite Portland; second, we provide resources and help to organizers of other community technology events. Specifically, the purpose of this organization is to
Grow and nurture the local Portland technology community through educational, not-for-profit, community-run events.
Make it easier for community members to organize technology events.
Provide resources and assistance for technology community events.
Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing these folks make this venture as successful as the events they have managed, and am eager to learn more about lending a hand in their efforts.
Ignite Portland is an event designed to facilitate the sharing of burning ideas in the Portland community—via extremely quick and compelling presentations. For more information on the concept and the recaps of the first event, visit Ignite Portland. To stay up-to-date on the latest news, subscribe to the Ignite Portland feed.
While the official videos won’t be available for another week or two, thanks to A.J. (aka Linuxaid), we have videos of Ignite Portland available, now. And using Portland-based SplashCast’s technology, all 18 videos are available for you, below, in one convenient package.
Got a recap? Post it to the comments and I’ll make sure to add it to the list.
(Personally, I got the chance to meet a bunch of the real-life versions of the avatars I see on a daily basis. To all of those folks, thank you so much. Great to see you. I know there were a bunch of people I missed, as well. And I’m truly sorry that we didn’t get the chance to meet.)
The next event is planned for January. Hope to see you—and meet you—there.
