New tech group in town

The folks at Pop Art have launched a new group, PDX UX (UX = User Experience), for area designers and developers to get together (via). Looks to be heavy on Microsoft stuff. That’s not an indictment against the group (I code in .NET for a living as a matter of fact), but I do know that many developers dislike Microsoft’s proprietary ways and many designers dislike working with Microsoft technology. So, it will be interesting to see how it does. I’ll add it to the list.

One of the questions that came up during the Inventrepreneurship session (slides) at WebVisions was where to find people to help build projects. Groups like PDX Web Innovators and PDX UX, as well as any of the groups in that list is probably a good place to start.

  1. I’m glad to see these groups popping up. My view has always been that we need to get these Portland Web peeps out of their homes and offices and get them talking.

    Part of me wants to merge all these tiny groups, but then I think that small, passionate groups communicating is what makes the web so cool.
