Announcing WhereCampPDX 4!

WhereCampPDX is a free, annual unconference for people interested in geography and related technologies. This year’s WhereCampPDX will be happening October 7-9 at Metro Regional Center and other Portland locations.

Discussions swirl through the commons area

Who

WhereCamps are volunteer-created events for anyone interested in geography and technology. Everyone who is interested in these topics is invited to participate.

What

An unconference is a conference planned by the participants. We come together in the morning and plan the sessions that will make up the day’s discussions and activities. This gives everyone an opportunity to bring the things that interest them the most to the table, ask questions, and talk about new and exploratory topics. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. As a result, the event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

When & Where

WhereCampPDX 4 will be held October 7–9, spanning Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

To kick things off, we’ll be hosting an opening party on Friday night with food, drink, and casual geonerdery. On Saturday, the Metro Regional Center will once again host our unconference day from 10am to 6pm. Sunday activities will take place at various locations throughout central Portland and are being currently being scheduled. Follow the WhereCampPDX site for up to the minute details, and let us know if you have great ideas for Sunday activities.
