PDX Women In Tech (PDXWIT) Presents A Woman-focused Code Retreat

Coderetreat.org is a self-organized, volunteer-led organization dedicated to enabling software developers to help each other improve their craft and teaming skills. Software developers of all sorts gather with their machines, IDEs and the ready-to-code Conway's Game of Life. A Coderetreat facilitator assists the developers during several 45-minute sessions throughout the day. Tanya Crenshaw and Jean Richardson will be teaming up to facilitate this Coderetreat. Tech Academy is donating space and providing breakfast and lunch for the event.

Come along for a day of codeplay in a supportive environment and help Coderetreat follow the sun during the global celebration of software development!

If you were there in October, we look forward to seeing you again. If you missed that event, grab your laptop, your favorite IDE, and come along. In response to feedback from the last session, we’ll be starting at 9am this time. Yes, we listen.


PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering: educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

There will be pizza. There will be beverages. There will be code. Join us at FINE for an evening of hacking. RSVP.

Dorkbot Meetup

Part hackathon, part geek social, these biweekly meetings are a time for you to come join others for insight, inspiration or just insanity. 

Bring your toys for others to see, or come see what others have been painstakingly chipping away at in their spare time. 

Whether it's code or chips, hacking of all sorts is encouraged. But we also like to hear your crazy ideas, so please come join us and bring your willingness to share your brilliance. 

We'll be the kids with all the coolest stuff on the table. Hope to see you there.
