BarCamp Portland

On May 12, I went to BarCamp Portland, an ad-hoc tech mini-convention at CubeSpace. I got there late in the afternoon and only went to a couple of talks. I went to a talk on Open Hardware and one on scaling Ruby. I saw a couple of people I knew but didn’t really chat much. It also looked at the most of the interesting stuff was happening in informal chats. I thought it was interesting that I didn’t see any sessions on Perl but there were lots of Ruby and Rails. I did play with an OLPC.
