  • AgilePDX: Mob Programming

    Mob Programming is a software development practice with many benefits - it raises code quality, removes knowledge silos, minimizes mental fatigue, and more. In practice it feels more like a bulldozer than a racecar - unstoppable and thorough. The core of mob programming is pointing many pairs of eyes on a single problem, pushing all the code through a single keyboard. Each month we'll explore different methods for learning to mob well and reaping the rewards of this practice as soon as possible on your own team.

    We may choose to head over to McMennamin's Kennedy School for food, drink, and talk afterwards.

    Facilitator Bio:

    Willem Larsen is a senior software developer at Hunter Industries. He has been speaking at Agile conferences on improving collaboration since 2009. He is the creator of accelerated team learning tools such as the Mob Programming role-playing game and Code Cooking (with Emmanuel Gaillot), author of the Language Hunter's Kit, co-author of 5 Rules For Accelerated Learning, founder of Language Hunters (a non-profit organization dedicated to improving communities of learning in technology, language, science, and music), and both a wildlife tracker and Search and Rescue tracker.

    Bring your Linux computer that is being a brat and we'll teach it some manners. Or bring your computer that has some evil operating system on it and we'll send it home with a shiny, clean Linux distro. Or just come and look over shoulders to see what Linux is all about.

    If you already know Linux well, the Clinic is also a good place to learn how to help users troubleshoot problems. It's excellent training for tech support work in Linux.

    We have monitors, mice, keyboards, and miscellanous other perifpherals, so generally all you need to bring is the box.

    There will also be coffee and people usually bring munchies as well. After all, you can't do computers on an empty tummy.

  • Digital Forensics

    News today is thick with stories of government agencies trying to find digital evidence of wrongdoing: interrogating mobile phones for evidence, tracing emails to find a stalker or looking at a killer’s search history to discover motives. Digital forensic analysis now plays a pivotal role in both corporate and legal investigations. However, few outside of the industry understand the intricacies involved in a forensic undertaking — the capabilities and limitations of the forensics investigative process, the role of the digital forensic investigator or the extent of the laws governing these actions.

    In this session, Tiberius Hefflin, Founder of Go Boldly, will delve into the basics of digital forensics. Attendees will learn what digital forensics draws from forensic science, how the law informs what a forensic investigator is ethically able to do, the many uses of digital forensics, evidence collection methods, anti-forensics methods, what the incident response process should look like and how they can maintain crime scene integrity until investigators can carry out an assessment.

    While the subject is dense and could certainly be expanded, this introduction is aimed at those new to digital forensics with the goal of providing a solid foundational understanding which can be built upon with self directed learning.

    Trigger Warning: Violent Crime, Child Abuse, Murder

    While the talk will not cover these topics in great detail, Tiberius Hefflin will be discussing real crimes that have been solved due to digital forensics.

    Join us for a great presentation and discussion! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

    Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions and news 6:15 PM: Presentation 7:15 PM: Q&A 7:30 PM: Wrap up and networking

    Join us for Happy Hour at Marmoset on August 21st.

    Transitioning into the tech industry can be scary, intimidating and for some,insurmountable. Since those of us who have been around for a while may have forgotten the struggle, this month we are asking ourselves how we can make space for those who are new. If you are new, we’d love to hear from you how others can help.

    An employee of Marmoset will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities.

    Lynn Krogseng, experienced Full Stack Developer, will tell us about returning to tech after a long absence.

    Kimberly Embry, Sales Development Rep at Jama, will talk about pivoting into the tech field.

    During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

    An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

    Table Topics to help break the ice.

    A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.

    Agenda:

    4:30 p.m. - Doors open/Networking

    5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

    6:30 p.m. - Event ends

    Q: Will there be food and drink at this event? A: We are planning to provide light food. I believe you are bringing the beer? University of Portland is sponsoring and bringing the beverages!

    Q: What is the parking situation? A: We have a small lot behind the building, people are welcome to try there, otherwise there should be ample street parking at that time.

    Q: Is there any special information that might help me find the entrance? A: You may choose from the patio entry or the door on Lincoln for folks to come in. If it's nice, you'll probably want to use the patio.

    Q: Should I consider using public transportation? A: Either

    Q: Can I bring my dog? A: No, we ask that you leave your furry friend home. Please note there may be office pets present at this event.

  • Serverless Architecture Meetup

    Stackery HQ

    This month we will have two talks:

    "What the Heck is OAuth?"

    The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework has become the industry standard in providing secure access to web APIs. OAuth allows users to grant external applications access to their data, such as profile data, photos, and email, without compromising security. However, OAuth can be intimidating when first starting out. In this talk, Aaron Parecki will break down the various OAuth workflows and provide a simplified overview of the framework, highlighting a few typical use cases for web apps, mobile apps and browserless devices.

    Aaron Parecki is a developer advocate at Okta, and maintains oauth.net. He's the co-founder of IndieWebCamp, a yearly unconference focusing on data ownership and online identity, and is the editor of the W3C Webmention and Micropub specifications.

    Alanna Risse will show us how she built a working 'bananaphone' with google cloud voice.

    Alanna Risse is a artist, web developer, and full stack mentor at Thinkful. Her piece “Bananaphone” was included in a group show at PNCA this summer. This interactive piece features a Google AIY Voice/Rasperry Pi Zero encased in an oversized paper maché bananaphone. Her website is http://alannarisse.com

  • Probabilistic Programming Kickoff meeting

    Tura.io

    Probabilistic Programming will be a powerful addition to anyone's AI/ML tool belt and can be particularly useful in low data situations (and you never have enough data), to take advantage of hard learned domain knowledge and to reason under uncertainty. Kind of the opposite of deep learning. But I see them as complementing rather than competing technologies.

    In this first meeting we will:

    • get to know each other
    • discuss our projects, interests and experiences regarding probabilistic programming
    • get started learning

    We'll start the first few meetings by going through the free book Bayesian Methods for Hackers by Cameron Davidson-Pilon (link below). Go ahead and read the first few chapters if get a chance before the meeting.

    There is a slack channel too.

    I hope you'll join us.

  • #FullStackPDX : August : Critique

    Just like fight club, if this is your first night attending, you have to present.

    Discussing your startup, recent project, code reviews, business ideas, etc. are all applicable. There is not a required length of time to present. This can be a live prototype or even a set of powerpoint slides. You do not have to know how to code to present your dream, and we are HERE TO HELP you. Presentations are meant to be collaborative, not the traditional meetup style where a presenter talks like a teacher for a very long time and saves questions for the end. We use a timer and the group dynamic works to collaboratively prevent cross talk and side conversations. So bring your computer, fun spirit and desire to learn, and let's have fun.

    Signups through meetup.com are required and seats are limited, so buy your tickets early because we usually sell out. We are self funded, and 100% of the revenue received is put back into the meetup costs. We will have top shelf pizza from Crown PDX (http://www.imperialpdx.com/the-crown/) so come HUNGRY for dinner!!

    Doors open at 6pm and we kick off on time. We start consuming the pizza at 6pm as well. After the concert of presentations we will walk over to Bailey's Taproom (http://www.baileystaproom.com/) to continue the evening.

    Location: WeWork Customs House : Room 1C : When you check in ask for CP Handheld, they are our sponsor. The room is right to the left as you walk in.

    Galois Tech Talk: Reasoning about Critical Systems using Refinement

    Abstract: Verification is often the dominant cost in the design of critical systems. In this talk, we advocate the use of refinement to reason about critical systems. The idea is that a system is correct if all of its observable behaviors are allowed by an abstract system that acts as the specification. For example, to verify a microprocessor using refinement, one shows that it implements its instruction set architecture. We provide a general introduction to refinement and motivate the need for various notions of refinement. We present various techniques and methods that have been developed to facilitate mechanized reasoning. We discuss the use of refinement for reasoning about distributed systems and hardware.

    Bio: Pete Manolios is a Professor in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern. Pete’s primary research interest is mechanized formal verification and validation of computational systems. Pete has served as an Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES), as a member of the FMCAD, ACL2 and ITP Steering Committees, and is a member of the IFIP working group 1.9/2.15 on Verified Software.

  • AgilePDX Westside Cafe: Integrating Dev & QA

    You're a QA professional and you've been trying for months to get involved at the start of a story, but developers push you away. They see you as the traffic cop waiting to catch them in an error. You're a developer and the QA folks always find something simple right before the end of the sprint. Why didn't they tell you they were going to test that?

    Join us at AgilePDX westside to discuss how to involve QA earlier in the process. How do you convince the team that QA is more than testing and ads value from the very start. How do you convince QA to step into a larger role? That they can abandon the formality they were trained in and jump right in.
