Heads up: Demolicious — slated for Thursday — is postponed

Startups are all about trying things. Sometimes those things work. Sometimes they don’t. And it’s no different with community. Sometimes, no matter how obvious and needed something appears to be, the community reacts otherwise. So you try. You observe. And you refine based on those observations. And that’s what former marquee startup community event Demolicious is experiencing with its planned reboot, this week. So it has been canceled.

Demolicious organizer Josh Carter shared the decision to cancel this week’s event on LinkedIn:

There is no future date scheduled for the event.

Given that Portland Startup Week officially starts on February 2, Groundhog Day seemed an appropriate theme

When Oregon native Andrew Hyde and I originally started chatting about Portland having its very own Startup Week—the concept that he, the Startup Weekend creator, had dreamed up to help towns celebrate their startup scenes—I was already toying with a few ideas. When he suggested that the launch date should be Groundhog Day, it was settled. Read More

From one Reedie to another: Switchboard inherits Demolicious Cup from fellow Reed alum at Knock

You just have to love Demolicious. I mean, where else can you get compelling demos of amazing startup technology—sometimes, even before it’s ready for prime time—in a really laid back and truly Portlandy competition?

Portland's Adam DuVander joins SendGrid as Developer Communications Director

If you don’t know Adam DuVander, you should. He’s one of the unsung champions of the Portland tech scene. He was one of the first Beer and Blog attendees; he started Demolicious; he was on the committee that brought the Ignite format to Portland; and the same group who helped bring BarCamp to Portland. But it’s what he’s done outside of town that’s even more impressive. Read More
