While some of you may have noticed a subtle update to the event details on our site recently, there has been a big change to the upcoming Startup Weekend that we need to tell you about.
We have changed the venue of October’s Portland Startup Weekend to the headquarters of Urban Airship, which is also in the Pearl. Long story short, an unavoidable scheduling conflict prevented us from holding PDXSW at Puppet Labs. But within that story is an inspiring bit of professionalism that we think deserves to be called out. When the scheduling conflict became apparent, the kind folks at Puppet Labs called around on our behalf and found PDXSW a home at Urban Airship. No fuss, no issues, just a warm welcome. To say that we’re amazed and humbled would be an understatement. We think Urban Airship and Puppet Labs have reaffirmed that they are strong supporters of Portland’s startup community. Please give these companies some BIG props.
Reminder: Portland Startup Weekend is just under 2 weeks away: October 14-16, 2011 Urban Airship’s HQ @ 334 NW 11th Ave Portland, OR 97209!
