PDXPUG: September meeting in two weeks – JSON

When: 7-9pm Thu Sep 19, 2013
Where: Iovation
Who: Andrew Kreps
What: JSON

This month we return to our regular meeting location at Iovation. Andrew Kreps will be giving a JSON demo.

– A brief definition of JSON for those who may not have a lot of experience with it
– Why the storage of JSON as JSON is important
– Working with the operators, selecting data, etc
– A practical example, probably using the Instagram API.

Andrew’s a Portland-based software engineer who digests APIs for breakfast. After stumbling through the worlds of Oracle and Mysql for many years, he’s found PostgreSQL to do things they way they should have always been done.

Our meeting will be held at Iovation, on the 32nd floor of the US Bancorp Tower at 111 SW 5th (5th & Oak). It’s right on the Green & Yellow Max lines. Underground bike parking is available in the parking garage; outdoors all around the block in the usual spots. No bikes in the office, sorry!

Building security will close access to the floor at 7:30.
