Portland JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting
Janrain Headquarters

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

This will be a lightning talk meeting! I encourage everyone to give a short presentation - five minutes or less - especially if you have not presented at pdxjs before. The talk can be on anything you want.

Pick a topic and make some slides, if you want to use slides. A five minute talk works well with ten or fewer slides, which gives you 30 seconds per slide. Add your name and a link to your slides (if any) to the signup sheet.

In addition, Kyle Drake will be presenting on Coinpunk, the future of browser cryptography, why he thinks server-side encryption and password hashing is going away, and how to use HTML5/JS/Node to develop secure applications for Bitcoin, a technology Rickard Falkvinge called "the Napster of banking".

Feel free to join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/pdxjs if you too are a JavaScript admirer.

If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please e-mail pdxjs@googlegroups.com.

Bitcoin - A Technical Introduction.
Portland State University Fourth Avenue Building (FAB) Room FAB 86-01

"Bitcoin is the world's first decentralized, peer-to-peer, digital currency and payment system. At its heart is an open source value-transfer protocol that facilitates currency transfers among users without relying on a trusted third party. The protocol employs provable-cryptography to prevent counterfeiting, censorship, double-spending, and account seizures.

We'll learn how the bitcoin protocol works, discuss some of its strengths and weaknesses, and dispel some common misperceptions. No prior knowledge of cryptography is required, but a basic understanding of mathematical functions (ie: surjectivity, injectivity, domains, images, preimages, etc) will be assumed."

Introduction to Bitcoin, the Blockchain and Cryptography
Northwest Academy

Do you want to learn how Bitcoin and Ethereum work, how cryptography plays a key role in securing funds, or how a network of untrusted computers guessing random numbers quadrillions of times per second adds security to the blockchain?

Join Scott Bigelow, Back-end Developer at Augur, for an introduction to the blockchain and some common blockchain-based applications. Technologies, such as the blockchain and Ethereum, can provide new opportunities in the startup-rich ecosystem of Portland. Additionally, understanding these revolutionary design principles can help illuminate new ways of designing your own systems.

No previous working knowledge of cryptography or other supporting technologies is necessary, as this will be a ground-up introduction.

Speaker bio: Scott Bigelow is a Blockchain Engineer for Augur, a decentralized Ethereum project developing prediction market software. Since the late 1990's, Scott has been developing software and running large distributed systems, working in industries such as enterprise analytics, real estate, and mobile video games. His involvement with cryptocurrencies began in 2013 with Bitcoin and more recently with Ethereum and Smart Contract development.

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

We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking following the talks. We hope to see you there!
