TechFestNW at OMSI
Friday, September 6, 2013 - 9:00am to Sunday, September 8, 2013 - 9:00pm

TechFestNW is designed to celebrate interesting people who are passionate about technology. Who are building a better world. And who value craft over commodity. The event takes place in conjunction with MusicFestNW, one of the largest independent music festivals in the US. Last year, MFNW attracted acts from up-and-coming artists to bands like Passion Pit, Dinosaur Jr, Silversun Pickups, and Girl Talk. While the inaugural tech event featured speakers from Flipboard, Betaworks, Walmart Labs, GigaOM, Shazam, and Spotify---as well as local favorites like Draplin Design Co, LAIKA, Chirpify, Simple, Nike, and XOXO.

TFNW will take place September 6-8th, 2013, with speakers all three days and a hackathon on Sunday, September 8th. Tech takes place during the day and music takes place during the night. Creating a true festival atmosphere.

We've already confirmed speakers like Scott Kveton of Urban Airship; 
Matt Mullenweg, creator of WordPress; Alex Payne of Twitter and Simple; Joe Stump of Digg, SimpleGeo, and Sprintly; Ward Cunningham, the inventor of the wiki; Jessica Zollman, former community manager of Instagram; Tyson Evans, deputy editor of interactive news at The New York Times; Ryan Carson, founder of Treehouse; Nigel Kersten, CTO of Puppet Labs; Adam DuVander of SendGrid; James Keller of Walmart Labs; Asha Dornfest of Parent Hacks; US Rep Suzanne Bonamici; Kate Ertmann of ADi; Chris Lindland, founder of Betabrand; Stephen Marsh, founder of Smarsh Inc; and Kelley Roy of makerspace ADX. 

And if that's not enough, we have to admit that Portland is simply amazing in September. It's one of the three reasons we live through rain for nine months out of the year.
