Side Projects That Ship at Refresh Portland: Slides and more

I had a great time speaking at Refresh Portland last evening! The presentation I gave differed ever so slightly from the one I gave in May, so here’s a fresh set of slides (plus accompanying notes and citations). You can also check out @RefreshPDX on Twitter, which diligently tweeted much of the proceedings.
