Portland Ruby Brigade - Ruby Tuesday
Due to space limitations this event has a hard cap of 60 attendees. We're also going to need to submit a list of attendees to security ahead of time so it's vital that you RSVP if you're planning to attend. With that in mind please don't RSVP if you're not certain you can make it, as we expect we'll end up turning people away for a seat you're not planning to fill.

Our second speaker of the evening will be the new/old organizer of PDX.rb Jonan, with an update on the present state of PDX.rb and the Ruby community at large as well as some exciting future plans for our community. You won't want to miss it.

Come be social and make some new Ruby friends, we're looking forward to seeing you there!

Coffee w/ Co-Founders (Portland Startup Week Edition)
Limited Capacity seats available

Portland Startup Week is a great chance to meet other founders. So it makes sense that we would put a Coffee w/ Co-Founders together during this special week. And for this event, we're going back to our roots and meeting at a local coffee shop.

About Coffee w/ Co-Founders: As a business owner you are faced with many challenges. You're forced to make decisions every day that could make or break your business. Coffee w/ Co-Founders is a way to network with other Entrepreneurs to allow free flowing information with the intent to collaborate and help each other. So often we're challenged and there's very little we can do to express our challenges with the people we work with or the people we care about. Think of Coffee w/ Co-Founders as your own personal support group for business owners. We're all here to help!

PDXWIT Presents: How to Study for a Technical Interview
Registration through Eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdxwit-presents-how-to-study-for-a-technical-interview-tickets-95274894775) is required to gain entry to this event
Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful proposition. It is hard to know what to expect or how to prepare for it. Each company evaluates its candidates differently. Luckily, some upfront investment and preparation can really go a long way in helping you distinguish yourself from the rest of the candidates. In this seminar led by an engineering leader at AWS Elemental (https://www.elemental.com/), we will cover some common interviewing practices for technical interviews and what you may be able to do to get ready. We plan to cover many beneficial topics: -- Morning preparation, attire, mindset -- Preparation for the non-technical parts -- How to study for the coding interview -- How to execute the coding test
Due to the level of interaction required, attendance will be capped at 50.
Agenda: 5:00 p.m. - Doors open 5:15 p.m. - Introduction 5:30 p.m. - Session begins 6:30 p.m. - Session ends

Purpose: 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.
Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
