The Web Performance Junto

The Junto is an exclusive networking club created by Packet and modeled upon the gatherings hosted by Benjamin Franklin in the 1700's. Our focus is web performance and our members include leading technologists, operators, financiers, analysts and policy experts. We gather 6-8 times per year, moving our meeting from city to city so that we can engage with (and benefit from) the leaders in our space. 15-20 members meet at a private dining room for the evening, allowing for great conversation to be paired with excellent food and drink.

Portland, Oregon

June, 2015 Elder Hall

We're stoked that Portland is playing host to Monitorama, with some of our favorite web performance people and companies in attendance.  The main reason is of course: Portland has awesome food, so we're taking over Elder Hall from 7:30-11pm on Tuesday June 16th.  

What's Elder Hall?  It's a gathering space attached to local favorite restaurant Ned Ludd.  What's cool is that Ned Ludd is named after the 18th-century British anti-industrial folk legend, from which the term 'Luddite' springs - obviously the perfect spot for a web performance gathering!  Read all about it here.
