Open Source Bridge happy hour: Mozilla and Emma hosting a get together at the Cleaners

We’re right in the thick of it. Open Source Bridge is providing tons of good content. People are tweeting about #osb11 on the Twitters. And a whole bunch of open source types are falling in love with Portland all over again.

But unfortunately, all the fun will be over soon. But not before Mozilla and Emma throw one last shindig. So if you’re in town for Open Source Bridge, swinging by Open Source Bridge, or thinking about trying to weasel your way into an exclusive party, this post is for you. Read More

Enhance your monitor tan: Summer Coders’ Social

It’s no secret that one of the best things about Portland is the summer weather. (Although the past few days have been working at doing a pretty job of keeping that secret.) It’s also no secret that the more technically inclined spend more time absorbing rays from their respective monitors than they do from that burning orb in the sky.

So, if you’re a coder and you need something enticing to draw you away from the dull glow of your favorite machine, look no further than the Summer Coders’ Social, a language and framework agnostic gathering of Portland’s coding community, this Sunday, August 3, at Laurelhurst Park.

The first Coders Social was last December, Winter Coders Social (photos). It was the result of many of the scripting language User Groups “Taking the month off” from their regular meetings and instead “having a party”. The event was a great success so we thought we would do something this summer. Coders Summer Social is the outdoor, sunny, successor of that winter event. The goal is a very casual, geek social event. BBQ, games, and conversation.

C’mon. That code will wait for a few more hours. Why not take a few minutes this Sunday to hang out with some other coders?

Sponsor Mozilla will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, and vegetarian BBQ fare. The rest? Potluck. You’re a coder. Go build something in the kitchen, too. Beverages are your responsibility, as well.

For more infor mation on the event, see the Summer Coders’ Social wiki. To RSVP, visit the Summer Coders’ Social on Upcoming.
