Welcome to pdxbyte.

A Portland Oregon users group primarily for languages that compile to machine native format such as C, C++, and Assembly.

Meeting format

Beginner talk

Hello World! A lot of experienced programmers feel like beginners with C even if they used it in school if they haven't used it extensively since then. Students, and people who might need a refresher should both feel comfortable in this part of the meeting.


The second part of the meeting will have a set start time such that people can skip the first talk. Announcements include telling people about projects they are looking to collaborate with, upcoming events, and "We're Hiring".

Intermediate to advanced talk

Could be almost anything. Starting a new hobby operating system? Programming spin control on a rocket? Writing a fast paced 3d video game? Bootstrapping bare metal via a JTAG debugger? We'd love to hear about it.

Location and time

2nd Tuesdays at New Relic doors at 6PM, and first talk at 7PM

111 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 2800

Portland, Oregon 97204

Don't be a jerk. (placeholder till more specific rules are written)


Daniel Patrick Johnson (@teknotus) got things moving with a call for proposals on the DorkbotPDX mailing list, Thomas Lockney (@tlockney) thought of the name pdxbyte, and generously donated the domain names.
