Last Week in PDX: OSCON Recap
Our heads are still spinning after a whirlwind week at OSCON, and now that we’re back at our home base in TriBeCa, we can’t help but think about all the good stuff that happened. Our Portland-based Tembooleans were out in full force on the ground, building our booth (good old P1, our temporary home away from home) and doing demos galore for everyone who came by. There’s nothing like being among a mass of developers and technologists, and we had a great time meeting lots of bright minds and taking them for a spin through our Library of Choreos. And, well, the free massages, endless bounty of eats, and microbrews on tap were also a plus. We even found time to see some great presentations, make the most of Mayor Sam Adams’ special sales tax exemption for conference-goers*, and scope out the new digs for our Beaver State-residing team members. All in all we had a great time, and we really appreciate everyone who came by and spent some time with us. We were especially flattered by one compliment that really meant a lot to us.
Next up: eCommerce Hack Day on August 4-5. Get excited!

Our new space in Portland. Comes with two mannequins and one ghost.
*Adams said to show our conference badges to local merchants to get a reprieve on paying sales tax. The joke is, there is no sales tax in Portland. Politician humor…
