    Ruby Coworking: Sellwood Edition

    An informal gathering of Ruby/Rails developers, working alongside each other. Join us!

  • PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) A Primer for Digital Forensics

    Mozilla

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-a-primer-on-digital-forensics-tickets-42957944368] is required to gain entry to this event

    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.

    TW: 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.

    Agenda:

    6:00 p.m. - Doors open

    6:15 p.m. - Introductions

    6:30 p.m. - Workshop begins

    7:30 p.m. - Workshop ends

    Event FAQ:

    Q: Will there be gender neutral restrooms? A: Yes

    Q: Is the space ADA accessible? A: Yes

    Q: Where there be food and drink at this event? A: Yes

    Q: What is the parking situation? A: Ample parking is available in the Brewery blocks underground however it is not free.

    Q: Is there secured bike parking? A: No

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

    Purpose:

    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    This event is listed on Meetup, please RSVP there if you can: https://www.meetup.com/Cloud-Native-PDX/events/249368520/

We'll take a look at some things that can bring higher security without breaking the budget.

    Next, Eric Ernst will demo KataContainers, a way to combine hardware virtualization with Kubernetes containers for more isolated, secure services without sacrificing startup times. In this talk he'll provide some background on the Kata Containers project and describe how Kata Containers works with CRI-O and Kubernetes.

    This month:

    JR Heard presents: How To Find All Your Bugs Using Generative Testing

    Testing your code is important, but writing example-based unit tests by hand is time-consuming and often ineffective. There's a better way! In this talk, JR (formerly @yelp, currently @ewindsolutions) will show you how to use the Hypothesis library in order to create property-based tests. Hypothesis is easy to use, it's fun, and it'll find tons of bugs in your code so you can sleep better at night! All skill levels are welcome; this talk will be great for beginners and advanced programmers alike.

    Join us after the meetup at Bailey's taproom at 213 SW Broadway to continue the discussion over a beverage.

    AgilePDX Westside Cafe: Dealing Successfully with Conflict

    Many of our agile methods can increase conflict. Collaboration means conflict. Any time we try to solve problems different opinions emerge on what to do. Transparency can trigger insecurities and conflict. Experimenting and failing/learning rapidly is not intuitive to our society and is bound to generate some friction.

    The stance we take when faced with conflict can help the team create something new, or it can add to the tangle. What do you do to help yourself stay present in the midst of conflict? What in-the-moment facilitation or coaching tools do you use when conflict is bubbling?

    Join us and share your stories about conflict, what you have tried and what you have learned. Hope to see you Friday April 27th for a lively discussion on conflict management within agile teams.

    The command line is a tool for typing computer commands, instead of clicking menus or buttons.

    Learning the command line is a great way to get familiar with core concepts of programming. Students will learn the basic parts of a command, listing, linking, tab completion, file system structure, and more, for the Linux command line.

  • Women Who Code Portland Software Engineering Interview Preparation Workshop

    Alchemy Code Lab

    Women Who Code Portland is hosting it's first ever Software Engineering Interview Preparation Workshop! This event is geared towards helping women prepare for technical interviews, but we welcome everyone who supports our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers and follows our code of conduct. The goal of the workshop is to provide people with the opportunity to gain experience with a technical interview format.

    This workshop is broken into two sections:

    • Algorithms Review
    • Mock Interviews & Whiteboarding

    In the morning, we'll cover an introduction to solving algorithms. Participants will have the chance to see common interview algorithms, and approach how to solve them under pressure.

    In the afternoon, we will break into groups for mock interviews. This will help participants get a feel for what a technical interview might be like. Whiteboarding can be much different than writing on paper, especially in front of others. Participants will have the chance to practice answers to common questions, thinking out loud while solving a problem and practice techniques for how to move forward when stumped.

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/workshop-software-engineering-interview-preparation-tickets-45105030360

    Creating Digital Spaces Everyone Can Access (PUGS x UX Night School)

    SE Uplift

    This workshop provides an introduction to digital accessibility standards and practices and gives participants hands-on experience with assessing, testing, and implementing accessibility practices in the physical and digital realm.

    We’ll start this workshop by talking about what accessibility entails: why it matters, and who is excluded when we don't adapt our online and physical spaces to account for varying ability levels. Then, we'll explore the business case for developing accessible technology. Isn't your business (your art project, your retail store) going to be more successful if everyone, regardless of their ability, can access and enjoy it?

    Next, we’ll dive into the technical details with a straightforward overview of the latest accessibility standards (the new 2018 Revised 508 Standards, the first major update since 2001, and the W3 WCAG standards). Then, we’ll work in small groups to practice hands-on accessibility testing. Finally, we’ll reconvene, share our progress and findings, and develop plans for implementing accessible development in our day-to-day work.

    Instructor: Amelia Abreu is a design researcher and the founder of UX Night School. She's worked with clients like Nike, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Intel. Before entering the industry, she did graduate research in Human Computer Interaction at the University of Washington.
