New Resource for Finding Local, Quality Childcare

My friend David is about to have twins. I've been an early educator for the past ten years, so he called me up and asked how he could find quality child care options in Portland without endless Googling and annoyance. I shrugged. So we decided to create www.pdxchildcare.com for families needing a comprehensive, local, and easy to navigate resource for finding day cares, preschools, and kindergartens. Search 575 facilities by ages accepted, religious affiliation, educational philosophy, afterschool care and more!

Seeking a Video Game Production Team

I'm seeking out a small development team who shares a passion for video games and RPGs. I'm producing a mystery turn-based 2D RPG and taking elements of detail from games like the old Final Fantasy and Xenogears, and design from old point-and-click adventure/mystery games. It will primarily use vector-based animation under 2D backdrops (no 8-bit). The game is developed under Unity for a PS4 / PS Vita release. I need another programmer who has Unity, or is comfortable with C++/C and several game artists with Photoshop and vector creation software to make animations with. I also need a music composer or multiple composers willing to create the OST. Ideally I would like to build a team of 8-10 people. I have a cloud drive, so team members can easily work and drop items inside, allowing them to work wherever and whenever possible. This is not a job offer, but an opportunity to build a great game, collaborate, and drive your passion. For further details/questions, please email me at rjm8@pdx.edu. Thank you.

Photographic Services

Hello Portland State Switchboard people, My name is Paul Holtzman and I'm a photographer who's looking for people that need/want a photographer for any kind of event/portrait service Before I moved to Portland from San Diego, I had the glorious chance to have taken photos for Redbull San Diego, MetalcoreNews, and ReLeaf Magazine weddings, and plenty of concerts.

(Note: if you are an alumni residing in Southern California, I still work in the San Diego County as well!) I charge depending on: The type of event or service (birthday, community event, concert, senior portraits etc.) Length of the Event (by the hour or flat rate[only if it is a short event]) How you would like your photos (prints [vary by price] or digital via. email) As the term is coming to an end, I need work to help pay for tuition, so if you need any photography needs or want a quote, feel free to contact me at: paulholtzman@gmail.com p.s. Do understand I am a full time student so please allow for 1-2 days for me to respond if you send an email, thanks for understanding.
