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


We will be in room 10 (downstairs) of the [http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=h&msa=0&msid=109280870257923598159.00047041b966a19099376&ll=45.506933,-122.682095&spn=0.022768,0.055661&z=15 fourth avenue building], which is part of Portland State University.

As the building is locked during the weekends, Attendees we be let in via the Harrison Street entrance. If you someone walk to a different entrance to get you then you owe them a quine in Haskell.


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.


  • 29Jun2011 - Announced HacPDX... #2. Only one month later than intended (note the similarity to HacPDX #1).


Go to the HacPDX Registration page and add your name as an attendee - the selected room can fit a population in the fourties.

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


There are restaurants and food carts in easy walking distance of the venue.

Some examples:

  • 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)
  • Carts all along 4th across from the FAB.


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.
