We’re Moderating The Crowd Funding Jam At Barcamp Portland 6

Come On Out, Learn Crowdfunding and Get Your Game On

BarCamp Portland 6 is rapidly approaching as the PDX tech event season continues to wind up. We’ve attended and led discussions at many unconferences spanning both coasts over the years. This year ZS volunteered to help facilitate the crowd funding jam (Indie Video Game Showcase and Crowd Funding Jam) featured event at BarCamp Portland 2012. This year we felt donating our time and expertise was a better way for us to contribute to the community.

BarCamp Portland

If you work in the Portland tech scene or in other community driven initiatives in PDX and don’t know about BarCamp Portland, you should! This BarCamp is being organized by Stumptown Syndicate (the amazing people who put together other cool events such as Open Source Bridge, Ignite, etc). This event is entirely run on donations and sponsorships, so consider pitching when you get your ticket, or becoming a sponsor if you’re going to attend.
