If you’ve ever thought about hosting a code sprint, hackathon, (un)conference or workshop, this talk is for you. We’ll give you an overview of what you need to know to execute a successful event, including:
Programmer at Elevated Code working with Ruby, Rails, and occasionally iPhone development. Writer of essays, recipes, horror comics, and knitting patterns. Photographer working with digital and film cameras, including Polaroid, Holga, and pinholes. Community organizer of unconferences like WhereCampPDX, and co-founder of Open Source Bridge. Core team member of the infamous Calagator. Agitator for a variety of grassroots local tech.
Sherri Montgomery is an IT business systems analyst for Mentor Graphics. As a member of the Business Intelligence team she makes huge data sets meaningful, cultivates order, grows projects, engages users, facilitates teams, and spends a great deal of time immersed in a sea of metadata, surfing the semantic layer.
In her spare time Sherri helps put on Ignite Portland and manages conference logistics for Open Source Bridge. She also meditates, makes awesome vegan food, creates art for trade, teaches Hatha Yoga and hikes. Sherri can often be found teaching yoga to geeks at conferences she participates in.
I am an experienced software engineer, technical project manager, community organizer and speaker (LinkedIn). My day job is with Mozilla (makers of Firefox) as a technical project manager on the Developer Evangelist team, currently focused on building the Firefox OS Developer Phone program.
I am co-chair of the annual Open Source Bridge conference, am a co-founder and President of the Stumptown Syndicate, a technology education non-profit, and run both Code N Splode and Women Who Hack, user groups for women in technology.
In 2012, I was recognized with an O’Reilly Open Source Award.
I live in Portland, Oregon with my wife, Sherri, her mother, and four cats and two dogs. My non-tech activities include Hatha Yoga, cycling, hiking, folding origami and cooking yummy vegan food.
