This week in after-work design & tech events in PDX UX Happy Hour, BSides PDX, Flux

Did any of you get out to Rose City Comicon this weekend? Tell me what you thought – I’d love to hear how it went down. I was in the outskirts of hippie country, catching up with friends who are decidedly veering off the grid.

This week: hackers. You ever wanted to hear how security researchers work their magic, or what they’re interested in breaking (or fixing)? BSides PDX will definitely give you your fill – I’ve been to the past two cons and they’re a fascinating look inside the mind the of the hacker. Sometimes scary, always educational.
