Getting started on a Timeline of Tech in Eugene.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about the Eugene tech scene and when different events happened. I don’t have the greatest memory, so I thought I work up a timeline.
I’d really like some help flushing it out. I’ve spend a few hours today searching old emails and trying to pin down dates for various things I’ve been involved with. The formation of the Eugene Programmer Meetup group is the start of the timeline for me in 2011 followed by CodeChops and some folks in that space. The two startup weekends are there. I’ve done what I can to find formation dates for FertiLab and RAIN but I’m mostly guessing. If you have milestones to add simply email or AMA and I’ll add them. I’m really looking for things like “Company X Formed” or “Big Event Y Happened” rather than regular calendar events. I know there are some companies that have been around for a while and I’d love to see date going back ten years if possible. I’ve only been around Eugene for 7 years and active in the community for the last 4. Thanks for you help!
