Ah late May in Portland. The February Fakeout is a long distant waterlogged memory. And even though we got a few days of awesomeness over the long weekend, any plans you had to anything outside have likely been dashed at this point. So why not join Portland types and WordPress for its 10th Anniversary? Read More
[HTML1]It’s almost that time, kids. Time for all the WordPress—the open source blogging and content management system popular in Portland and a great number of other places—types to gather and share and learn. Time for WordCamp Portland.
And true to form, WordCamp Portland is shaping up to be one of the best WordCamps of the year, with speakers like Matt Mullenweg, Mark Jaquith, and Jane Wells among others. But if you want to take part, you better hurry. Because ticket sales close this Friday. Read More

I don’t need to tell you (but I will anyway): Portland loves open source. But do you know what we love even more than that? Open source founders.
We proudly proclaim Portland the home of the creator of Linux, Linus Torvalds—and of course his four impersonators come late September. And having Rasmus Lerdorf, the founder of PHP, here in town for Open Source Bridge was quite a coup.
And now, we have another open source founder to add to the list. Thanks to WordCamp Portland, WordPress creator Matt Mullenweg will be visiting Portland in September. Read More
