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.
