Portland companies, by and large, have a very difficult time tooting their own horns. “Oh no no. We’re not doing anything special. Don’t worry about us.” But sometimes, they get discovered for the actual potential they hold. And the site-of-record for the Bay Area, PandoDaily, just took a closer look at one of them: Janrain.

If you like open source—and I’m betting you do—there’s no better or more affordable conference than Open Source Bridge, the entirely volunteer run conference designed for open source citizens. And the four-day event—held June 1 – 4, 2010 at the Portland Art Museum—is even more affordable if you act now.
That’s right. Registration just opened. And that means you can get a ticket to all of Open Source Bridge—and access to the 24-hour hacker lounge—for the early bird price $225. Or you can grab a one-day pass for $99. Read More
You know me. I like to state—some would say overstate—the obvious. So here we go. You may not know it, but Portland? Portland loves WordPress.
It’s true. We have user groups for it. Build themes for it. Code plugins for it. Heck, some of us even blog with it every now and again.
And once a year, all of us Portland WordPress aficionados like to gather to share ideas, compare notes, and learn from our astute peers at WordCamp Portland. Sound interesting? Well get moving, because WordCamp registration opened today and there’s only room for 200 folks. Read More
So, come on down all you WordPress-o-philes or WordPress curious types. And get all signed up to spend a full day discussing the WordPress platform, plugins, themes, RSS, and more with some of the Portland WordPress faithful.
Registration is $10. And that garners you a t-shirt. Well, and a really interesting conference experience:
WordCamp Portland will be held at CubeSpace on September 27th. You can head over to the Agenda page to check out the details, but we’ll kick things off with a couple large-group speakers including Lorelle Van Fossen as our keynote speaker. The middle of the day will feature several small-group breakout sessions with a variety of topics. Attendees can pose WordPress questions to our “Ask the Experts” panel before dinner [featuring yours truly in my ever popular “nodding and smiling but not really saying anything” role]. After dinner, we’ll have a bunch of rooms available for unconference-style sessions to be determined by the attendees on the day of the event.
But wait! There’s more! Fellow sponsor OurPDX hints at some other benefits of attending WordCamp Portland:
This all-day conference will cost you a mere 10 dollars – which includes a t-shirt, meals, and beer. Yes, there will be beer – in fact, Our PDX Network is more than happy to be ponying up for a keg (or two) to help support WordPress Portland…!
I know I speak for all the sponsors and organizers when I say that we’re looking forward to having you at WordCamp Portland. So why not take a couple of seconds to register? Space is limited. First come, first served.
