* Developing an open source application to support a community mentor network in Portland

Since January of this year, a group of independent programmers, community-based organizations, public officials, and software executives and entrepreneurs have been working as part of the PDX11 initiative to identify solutions to make it easier for local software professionals to establish mentoring relationships. This presentation will outline a novel approach to developing a software application to support the local tech community and will invite feedback from attendees to help shape the process moving forward.
