Streaming, parties and other goodies

Feb 10 2012

So it’s Friday and you’re coming to NodePDX tomorrow, right? Oh. Wat? You’re still chillaxing in San Francisco? Waiting for the subway in NYC? Hanging out in a coffee shop in Amsterdam?

No problem. Fear not my fellow Nodistas, the entire conference will be streamed live and the talks will be recorded and available for later viewing. All of this is happening on the NodePDX Livestream Channel

Also, you may or may not have heard but New Relic is sponsoring an open-bar, hosted happy-hour on Saturday night from 6-8pm at Lotus. Come join us!

Sunday night we’ll be heading over to The Guild Public House for drinks. They are going to have my favourite 80’s hacker movie, War Games on the big screen starting at 7pm, and you’ll get a $1 off your draft beers just by showing your NodePDX badge. Complete with free wifi, some cool video games upstairs and a bartender that can mix a serious Sazerac… What better way to relax after the conference? See you there Sunday night around 6:30pm!

If you just can’t wait and want to get in the mood early… Watch this mesmerizing demo that @thoward37 made in pure Javascript/HTML5. This will be rolling on the projector in between talks. Woot!

If you’re a procrastinator like me (too much lazily evaluated coding)… It’s not too late to RSVP!

NodePDX 2012 Event Space

Jan 13 2012

The event space for NodePDX 2012 is finally settled. Thanks so much to Mark Grimes over at NedSpace for the donation. It’s really awesome how supportive our community is here (in case you needed any further proof that Portland, Oregon is the best place in the world).

Nedspace is a comfy environment for the main event, with great access to public transportation, a nice bar right next door and all the amenities that being centrally located in the heart of downtown Portland offers.

This was the last major piece towards making this a completely “money free” conference. If only I can get someone to donate coffee and beer…

Also, if anyone is interested in volunteering, I will need a bit of help setting up the event space, cleaning up afterwards, managing door security, etc.. Please email if you’re interested!
