Startup Weekend is happening in Portland again, this time April 27-29 at Portland State Business Accelerator in downtown Portland. This is always a great experience. Be sure to put it on your calendars and take part in the Bootcamp happening on April 21. As usual, I'll be there pitching and working on some ideas involving Windows Phone and Metro apps for Windows 8, so please feel free to join me. I'm also happy to be recruited and hear your pitch if you feel like you have a great idea and need help building it. This event always sells out in advance, so be sure to register now.
