Portland Oregon is home to a batch of dedicated techies. There seems to be an interesting programming event or conference every month in the Rose City.
A couple months ago I heard about a new family oriented conference, called PDX Webfoot, that is happening on April 12th. The idea is to have a conference with lots of developer content, but also have sessions and activities for the rest of your family. Games for the kids, general web sessions for the older kids and spouses. This year there is more technical topics than family ones, but the concept is refreshing.
Webfoot is this weekend and there are still lots of seats available. The event is free and scheduled on the weekend. There is supposed to be plenty of good food (not pizza) and a Lego Mindstorm area.
Looks likes sessions include Flex/AIR, Silverlight, XNA, Deep Zoom, ASP.NET 3.5 and IE 8.0
Oh, did I mention that Adam Kinney and I are doing a couple of Silverlight talks? Adam is covering the design aspect and I doing my Touring the Silverlight API talk.
Why not sign up today?
