Participating

Remote Participation

IndieWebCamp has a strong tradition of remote participation, typically using IRC, Google Hangouts and Etherpad during as well as after the event.

This year, we'll be using Mozilla's system for remote participation. We will broadcast the main room on our YouTube channel, and if you would like to join the discussions you will be able to call in from a computer. You can download Vidyo Desktop ahead of the event to speed up joining the call once we're live.

Note that Portland is on PDT, UTC-7.

If you can't get to the event, consider remote participating or finding/running an IndieWebCamp remote party near you.

Airport

✈️ PDX Airport. If you are flying to Portland, Oregon, PDX is the airport you want.

🚈 From the PDX airport, the MAX will drop you off downtown a few blocks from the venue. It costs $2.50 for a ticket. Public Transit directions

Lyft or Uber

🚙 You can also take Lyft or Uber from the airport, they will pick you up in the lower level, in a section named "Transportation Network Companies." The cost will be about $18-22 for UberX. More info on the Uber blog.

Taxi

🚕 If you want to take a local cab, Aaron recommends calling Radio Cab (503-227-1212) when you are just outside security, and they will meet you in the lower level for pickup. Alternately, there is usually a line of cabs ready to take people in the lower level.

Hotels

🏫 Here are a few nearby recommended hotels:

Roomsharing

  • David Shanske has arranged a double at the University Place Hotel and is willing to share and split costs. Room comes with breakfast, wifi, and is 20 minutes away from the venue by streetcar, and less expensive than staying downtown.

AirBnB or Couchsurfing
