OEN PubTalk: What’s the Thing with the Internet of Things?

By now, we’ve all heard of the Internet of Things, but what does it really mean? What’s at stake, and what are the biggest opportunities and risks? Join us for our October PubTalk to learn about the scope and future of IoT. Our October PubTalk is in partnership with Thing PDX.


The OEN PubTalk™ is our flagship monthly happy hour — a perfect starting point for new community members and a great place for established members to make new connections.

As always, the program will be preceded by time for networking and will include free appetizers and pizza. Registration begins at 5:15 p.m. Our PubTalks usually kick off with a short pitch from an OEN member, followed by audience Q&A.
