Dorkbot PDX Summer Party!

When: Friday, July 23rd at 7pm
Where: Backspace (115 Northwest 5th)

Please join us at Backspace on Friday, July 23rd at 7pm for a Dorkbot PDX summer party! We will be celebrating the conclusion of OSCON that week and enjoying some nice geekery.

We will have an hour or so of OpenDork -- where people get a chance to present on some recent art/tech/dork work in 5 or 10 minutes and solicit feedback from the community. It's a great chance to see what other hackers have been banging on, and it's a wonderful opportunity to get inspired!

There will be a couple of musical performances (by people with hand-built music devices) and we will have one or more DJs to round out the night.

Backspace has generously extended a $1 off draft beer special for the event! Woot!

As always, Dorkbot PDX events of this sort are free and open to the public, so hackity hack and spread the word. See you there!

  • 8:00-9:00pm - OpenDork
