Our first event went without a hitch! Hosted at Portland State University (1930 SW 4th Ave, Portland) January 26-27, 2013, we offered seven workshops for them to choose from in an action-packed weekend. We put on a “Tech Show” at the end of the weekend, where our participants showed off what they’ve created to friends, family, sponsors, and each other.
