Oscar Godson
Web Developer, City of Portland, OR

Website | @oscargodson

I work for the City of Portland, OR as their web developer. I’ve been the lead developer to their website refresh project (still in development). I create AJAX apps and write API specs, documentation, and libraries which are used to create more accessible and open government data.

On the side I write on my personal blog as well professionally on blogs such as Bittbox.com. You may have also seen some of my writing on the front page of Hacker News. I’m the creator of sites such as Project Deploy* and PatternWall. I’ve worked with, and done work for Daniel Erickson (formerly of Storify, now Yammer), Caleb Kimbrough (of Lost & Taken, Bittbox, and numerous other sites), BatchGeo, Safeco, and Nestle.
