Who's hiring in Portland? (March, 2017)

Who's hiring in Portland?

Inspired by the "Who's hiring?" threads at YC News, I'd like to try something similar here. (Yes, there's a pay-to-play Drupal job board, but it's not being used by any employers right now here in Oregon.)

Discuss the use of Slack for open source

At last night's meetup there was a bunch of talk of using slack. Please remember that slack is a closed system. Your posts are not yours, the system isn't open, and in my opinion it shouldn't be used for open source projects or communities. Slack is great for business and other projects, but there is a reason that a heroku app hack is required to sign up for slack that is being used for open source. Slack isn't a product built with the ideals that make OSS great in mind.

A better articulation of my opinions on this are written on this blog post by Drew DeVault.

PNWDS 2017 Vancouver: I accidentally registered twice! Wanna buy my second ticket?

Hello, fellow PNW Drupaliers!

In a panic over tickets selling out, and not being able to locate any email confirmation of my having already registered, I inadvertently bought a second $55 ticket to this year's event.

I subsequently noticed the "tickets" tab in my account profile, informing me that I had registered way back in early December.

So, I have an extra ticket -- I believe there is some way that I can pass mine on to someone, so if anyone is interested in buying my second ticket, I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks!

~ Richard
