What is Donut.js?

Donut.js is a monthly meet-up in Portland, OR with a handful of wonderful talks on tech, creativity, community, and the places they come together.

The Schedule

Lineup coming soon!

Getting to Donut.js

  • We’re at Alchemy Code Lab! The address is 30 NW 10th Ave.
  • Here’s a Google Map link.
  • It’s a red brick building on the east side of the street. It’s across the street from Powell’s Bookstore. Alchemy Code Lab is on the second floor. There are ‘Alchemy Code Lab’ signs on the door, and we’ll have a big blue Donut.js sign out front too.
  • Public transportation:
    • Alchemy Code Lab is right at the Portland Streetcar NW 10th & Couch stop. The A Loop and NS Line streetcar lines stop there.
      • Streetcar fare is $2 for 2.5hrs, which should be enough time to cover getting to and leaving from Donut.js.
    • The closest bus stop is W Burnside & SW 10th, which is diagonally across the street from Alchemy Code Lab. The Route 20 bus stops there. The Route 77 bus stops at NW Everett & 11th, which is two blocks east of the venue.
      • Trimet bus fare is $2.50 for 2.5hrs, which should be enough time to cover getting to and leaving from Donut.js. A day pass is $5.
    • You can pay for your ticket with cash when you board the bus or at a ticket machine. You can also use a physical or digital Hop card that you load with money. More details here. If you have never taken transit in Portland before or haven’t recently, it’s a good idea to figure out how you can get a ticket before you set out on your way.

Checking In

  • You don’t need to bring a printed ticket or show us your digital ticket. Just tell us your name and we can look you up and check you in.
  • Nametags and pronoun stickers (ask me, he, she, they) available at check-in.
  • Free Donut.js stickers available.
  • Donut.js enamel pins are available for $5.


  • All host remarks and talks will be live-captioned by Mirabai Knight of StenoKnight.
  • Our talks are recorded with a video camera that will be positioned in the back of the room. The camera may capture the back of some attendees’ heads, but will be focused on the speaker and their slides. We will turn off the camera in between talks, but we cannot guarantee that attendees’ faces will always be completely obscured. We do not provide photography consent stickers or lanyards at this time.
  • Two all-gender, stall-only restrooms are available.
  • Our event is on the second floor. An elevator is available at the building entrance.
  • 3.5-foot-wide physical access lanes will be taped on the floor throughout the venue.
  • Anyone can reserve a front-row seat or space for their wheelchair/mobility device.
  • Service dogs are very welcome.

Food & Drink

  • Omnivore donuts, gluten-free donuts, and vegan donuts. (They are usually from Delicious Donuts!)
  • We’ll have a few other snacks (pretzels and gluten-free+vegan chips) on hand for those of you looking to avoid an evening sugar rush.
