HacPDX (The Original)

September 25-27 2009

Portland, Oregon, USA


HacPDX is an opportunity to join Portland Haskell hackers in building and improving Hackage libraries and tools. If you've never been, Hackathons are typically not only a good opportunity for experienced devs to work together but also a great way for newcomers to get involved in the community.

* Calagator : http://calagator.org/events/1250457547


Friday   Sept 25  3:30PM  to 6:00 PM
Saturday Sept 26  10:00AM to 6:00 PM
Sunday   Sept 27  10:00AM to 6:00 PM

We can work however late, but tentatively let's plan on eating and sleeping.

The Friday times give an opportunity to meet and test your network connectivity, should you so desire. Afterwards we can head out to grab a pint!


We will be in room 86-01 (downstairs) of the fourth avenue building, which is part of Portland State University.

As the building is locked during the weekends, I'll be letting attendees in via the Harrison Street entrance.


You should bring a laptop with wireless (802.11). The room has whiteboards and a projector for any discussions or should anyone wish to give a talk.


  • 11Aug09 - Announced HacPDX... only one week later than intended!


Go to the HacPDX Registration page and add your name as an attendee - the selected room can fit a population in the low-twenties well enough and we'll work to acquire the larger room if needed.

Be sure to list any projects in which you're interested!


Getting food might involve a little more of a walk (I'll do some research, feel free to add suggestions if you're a local), but there are many restaurants down town.

[Tim says] nearby options that are open on weekends include but are not limited to:

  • Hot Lips Pizza, SW 6th and Hall (2 blocks away)
  • Taco Del Mar (next door)
  • Baan Thai, SW College and Broadway
  • Thanh Long, SW College and Broadway (Vietnamese)
  • Chipotle, SW College and Broadway
  • Cheerful Tortoise, SW College and Broadway (beer and grease)


Buses 12, 44, and 17 all stop right outside the Fourth Avenue Building. The Yellow and Green Lines of the MAX stop a few blocks away. If you're biking from the east side just take Hawthorne bridge, a left on first, and a right on Harrison - the building is on the corner of Harrison and 4th.

If you want to attend and are coming from outside of Portland feel free to ask for a hand.
