CryptoParty PDX!
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

This week's Exploit Workshop is a bit different...

CRYPTOPARTY PDX!

Why CryptoParty?

Privacy is the space in which ideas are developed, to retreat into whenever you want. This space is not only physical but digital as well. This is a right guaranteed by the 4th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. We've begun hosting cryptoparties here in Portland as a service to educate the general public about how they can better protect their privacy now and for the future.

What is a CryptoParty? CryptoParties are open for everyone but especially for people without prior knowledge that didn't dare attend yet, for free and most of all fun.

CryptoParty is a decentralized movement with events happening all over the world. The goal is to pass on knowledge about protecting yourself in the digital space. This can include encrypted communication, preventing being tracked while browsing the web and general security advice for computers and smartphones.

To try the programs and apps at the CryptoParty bring your laptop or smartphone.

CryptoParty is a grassroots global endeavour to introduce the basics of practical cryptography such as the Tor anonymity network, key signing parties, TrueCrypt, Linux, and virtual private networks to the general public.

This is a free skill-sharing event with other Cryptography and Privacy technology experts, working along side and sharing information with people new to Crypto and Privacy.

Everyone is welcome regardless of experience, bring a Laptop if you have one, if not, bring a USB thumbdrive, a pen and a pad of paper.

If you want to learn about how to encrypt your files and communicate securely, this is the event to come to!

Look for the people with laptops.

Get in contact If you want to help plan the event, or just join in on the fun you can contact us by emailing cryptoparty (AT) pdxhs (DOT) org

Portland F# Meetup Group - Organizational Meeting
DAT

I need to double-check with the location's availability still, but I'm pretty sure they'll be able to accommodate us.  I'll also have an update with instructions on how to enter the building after hours.

At this meetup, we need to identify and empower a new organizational team. 


I'm recommending that we have four active members with the privileges to schedule and conduct meetups.  This should distribute the burden of identifying topics, picking dates and times and securing locations in such a way that we capture productivity at the moment of inspiration and not obligation.  If that last bit didn't make sense, come to the meetup and I'll explain how that works.

Portland SaaS Founders - Customer Acquisition Strategies for SaaS
US Custom House / WeWork

Acquiring customers for our SaaS companies is arguably one of the most difficult challenges we face. We need to figure it out what works and what doesn't work, and we need to do it before the money runs out.


In this Meetup we'll discuss:

• The marketing strategies that are working for us, and the ones that didn't.


• Lessons we learned taking our products to market.

• Paid vs organic marketing channels: which ones are best for every stage of growth.

• How we've identified our most profitable market segments and how we're providing value to them.


• Social media, search engine marketing, PR and advertising. Pros and cons of each channel, and which ones are right for us.


Coffee, tea and draft beer will be provided. Come hang out with other SaaS founders and share your story!

PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Happy Hour Networking Event
Urban Studio

** Please RSVP on Eventbrite HERE **

Join us for happy hour at Urban Studio, sponsored by Lyft and in partnership with Tech Ladies!

As a woman-focused community, we’ve decided it is no longer enough for our support of other underrepresented groups to be implied. This month, we’ve decided it is time to focus on the interconnectedness of the various social categorizations and dedicate the theme of this event to “Intersectionality,” with a conversation starter of “What’s a recent book, writer or film that has changed your perspective?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase two women from Lyft!

Introduction to Lyft, including what they do and what job opportunities are available!

Lita Cho, Senior Software Engineer at Lyft, will talk to us about how intersectionality has been woven into the company’s diversity and inclusion efforts.

Janani Sundarrajan, Software Engineer at Lyft, will talk about Lyft’s progressive Gender Inclusion and Affirmation policy which was recently released.

During the event, we’ll have 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 forMeg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization.

Papers We Love @ PDX - Gorilla: A Fast, Scalable, In-Memory Time Series Database
Mozilla PDX

This paper will be presented by Johannes Hoff.

This paper describes how Facebook stores 700 million data points (timestamp and value) per minute and keeps 26 hours of it available in memory for fast access. We will mainly look at the compression algorithms making this possible.

Here is the abstract:

"""

Large-scale internet services aim to remain highly available and responsive in the presence of unexpected failures. Pro-viding this service often requires monitoring and analyzing tens of millions of measurements per second across a large number of systems, and one particularly effective solution is to store and query such measurements in a time series database (TSDB).

A key challenge in the design of TSDBs is how to strike the right balance between efficiency, scalability, and relia-bility. In this paper we introduce Gorilla, Facebook’s in-memory TSDB. Our insight is that users of monitoring sys-tems do not place much emphasis on individual data points but rather on aggregate analysis, and recent data points are of much higher value than older points to quickly detect and diagnose the root cause of an ongoing problem. Gorilla op-timizes for remaining highly available for writes and reads, even in the face of failures, at the expense of possibly drop-ping small amounts of data on the write path. To improve query efficiency, we aggressively leverage compression tech-niques such as delta-of-delta timestamps and XOR’d floating point values to reduce Gorilla’s storage footprint by 10x. This allows us to store Gorilla’s data in memory, reduc-ing query latency by 73x and improving query throughput by 14x when compared to a traditional database (HBase)-backed time series data. This performance improvement has unlocked new monitoring and debugging tools, such as time series correlation search and more dense visualization tools. Gorilla also gracefully handles failures from a single-node to entire regions with little to no operational overhead.

Write The Docs PDX - History of the New Relic Documentation Site, Part One
New Relic

It’s understood that great documentation is essential to use software properly, but in a world with ever-changing specifications and hot new features, how can documentation remain fresh and easily accessible? We’ll discuss how New Relic has approached this, from the process of making sure the latest correct information is available, to updating the interface to make it easy for users to find exactly what they’re looking for, to analyzing our users’ habits and feedback to provide necessary tools and updates in the future.

We’ll take a stroll down memory lane to visit some of the early layouts of the documentation site,  and we’ll discuss the present iteration of the site and the UI changes that were made and why. We’ll also look into the future and provide a glimpse into what we can expect from the site in the months to come.

PADNUG - Kirk Davis and Paul Fryer: Building .NET Serverless Applications with AWS!
Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 (HF3) Campus

A serverless approach to computing is one where services required to run a system are managed and automated. Developers don’t need to worry about running server instances and you pay only for the time code is actually executing, instead of servers hosted by the hour. Learn how to build .NET based serverless applications with Amazon Web Services (AWS). We’ll build an ASP.NET Core API and deploy it to AWS’s function as a service, Lambda and API Gateway. Then we'll deploy a single page application (SPA) with AngularJS using AWS’s storage service, S3 and content delivery network, CloudFront. This entire serverless application will be built, deployed and ready to serve at scale during the demo.

Portland Data Science Group - Designing Intelligence

Automation is the future of computing and conversational interfaces are the future of human-computer interactions. However, creating these systems requires us to reverse engineer some of the most fundamental aspects of life, which can be difficult and overwhelming — especially if you don’t know where to start. 


 Designing Intelligence will: 
• Help the you understand what’s happening in the artificial intelligence space and where it’s been. 
• Explain why you’ll be making one of these systems sooner than you think. 
• Teach you how to create the products that will thrive in the age of automation. 
• Give you language to help you sell your ideas to your team and bring your dreams to life. This is one talk you’ll regret missing.

Guest Speaker Joe Toscano will be presenting - @realjoet.

Formerly an Experience Designer for R/GA, Joe worked as a consultant for Google, where he and his team oversaw the Google product ecosystem and helped Google take products to market. This meant he and his team had to understand how each product strategically fit within the Google ecosystem now, how each product would evolve, over time, and how the decisions being made by individual teams would affect Google’s larger business goals, as a whole. Understanding this allowed him and his team to be confident that the decisions they were making would strategically move Google’s business forward.

Joe has since left his job at R/GA to pursue writing his book, Designing Intelligence. The book is being written to help people understand the current state of automation, where it's been and where it's going, how to design products that will thrive in the age of automation, and what role we, as technical talent, play in creating an inclusive future through automation. He hopes to help create ethical automation designers who not only understand best practices of making these systems but also understand the impact they'll be making on the world, through automation.

Note the earlier-than-normal start time of 6p.

Write The Docs PDX - Action! Not Just Words
New Relic

Abstract


Many technical writers and documentarians benefit immensely after attending relevant conferences. These events offer networking opportunities, access to Subject Matter Experts, and impetus to pursue novel solutions to work conundrums.


The annual Write the Docs conferences offer glimpses of what is possible in my work environment. After Write the Docs NA 2017 event, I initiated several new projects/processes to elevate the state of internal communication, raise awareness for customer-facing documents, and organize tech communication community at work. The initial results have been encouraging.


We’ll explore how ideas from past and present Write the Docs events have acted as catalysts to overcome challenges and obstacles. We’ll also discuss why the conference is relevant for tech writers, regardless of their industry affiliations.

Bio

Mo Nishiyama is a Technical Writer at Oregon Health & Science University’s Information Technology Group. His professional passions include transforming dense engineer-speak into customer-friendly support articles, cultivating a community of tech writers in the workplace, promoting a human-centric work culture, and sharing career/life experiences through public speaking.

This session will be an ML course for the beginner.  My favorite two entry-level models are decision trees and k-means, so we'll use those to begin wrapping our minds around words like supervised and unsupervised learning, information, and data models.

The code that powers the visuals I'll use is written in Python.  So while some background in coding (specifically Python) would help, those without coding experience will still get a lot from the talk.

I would like to have this event be done regularly, but obviously depends on interest.

Portland SaaS Founders - Developing high functioning software teams for SaaS
US Custom House / WeWork

We're all faced with the challenge of creating an awesome software product for our customers. A big part of this is having a highly functional software development team.  

In this Meetup we'll discuss:

• When to develop software in-house versus outsourcing or partnering with another software platform. Some SaaS companies utilize a mix of in-house and outsourced developers. We'll brainstorm various possible approaches.

• How do you train new developers?  What approaches have been successful and what has been a dismal failure? - Does it make sense to hire senior developers only or a mix of junior and senior developers?

• Team / project organization - Do you do daily standups? How do your organize sprints? How are deadlines established and by whom? Is your team in the same office or are some remote? What tools do you use (Slack, Trello, etc.)? With all of the bugs, feature requests, UI overhauls, when do you ship updates to the product?

• Communication and transparency - How do you speak to the rest of the team in a language everyone understands? Do you hold weekly/bi-weekly meetings to announce progress? How do you showcase new features to clients?

Coffee, tea and draft beer will be provided. Come hang out with other SaaS founders and share your story!


If there's more on this topic you would like to discuss, send us a message and we'll try and get it added to the agenda.

Tech Academy Portland Meetup - Technology Basics Book Launch & 'How to Break Into the Tech Industry'!
George R. White Library and Learning Center, Concordia University

BOOK LAUNCH
With technology becoming integral to almost every industry, a basic understanding of how computers and technology work is necessary for success.

We believe technology is for everyone, and we are removing the barriers to entry that have stopped people from really being able to understand and use technology.

The Tech Academy Co-Founders are releasing four books. One is a dictionary, and three are practical books that teach you how to program computers.

These books include: 
• Technology Basics Dictionary 
• Learn Coding Basics in Hours with Python
• Learn Coding Basics in Hours with Small Basic 
• Learn Coding Basics in Hours with Javascript

The Technology Basics Dictionary is for everyone - from the absolute beginner to the experienced pro.


‘Learn Coding Basics in Hours’ is a series of books written for the absolute beginner who is interested in learning how to code (coding means programming computers to perform tasks).

TECH TALK
In addition to celebrating the launch of the Technology Basics book series, Tech Academy co-founder Erik Gross will be giving a Tech Talk on 'How to Break Into the Tech Industry'.

PDX Engineering Managers - Please join us for the next PDX Engineering Managers Meetup!
New Relic

Please join us for the next PDX Engineering Managers Meetup! We'll be meeting to discuss the craft of software and operations management, shipping software, and building great teams!

This meeting will have two parts:

1) Informal meet and greet (food and beverages provided by New Relic)

2) A talk by New Relic's Andrew Ettinger: “Why estimate? Practical “No Estimates” project management in a dynamic environment.”

Abstract: No Estimates sounds crazy, but the reality actually isn’t so bad. My team at New Relic has been practicing a version of “No Estimates” alongside a variety of Agile techniques for about 8 months, and we’ve developed a solid track record of software delivery using it. We’ll take a look at how No Estimates works in an estimated world, how you really can track progress and commitments, and what that means to your team, your stakeholders, and your product delivery process. We’ll also take a look at projects that fit this model well, ones that don’t, and potential pitfalls we’ve encountered so far.

We look forward to seeing you there!

New Relic FutureTalks PDX - Team health assessments: a way to understand yourself and improve all the things
New Relic

Join us on Monday, May 14 for the next edition of FutureTalks featuring New Relic employees Brent Miller and Honey Darling unpacking the "Team Health Assessment" — an organizational practice we've just undertaken as part of our commitment to continual reinvention which will help us understand how teams work and how product is built at New Relic.

The best human achievements are team efforts. How do you know if your teams are healthy? It’s a complex problem, with no easy answers. Two years into a seemingly successful agile transformation at New Relic, we found ourselves wondering how well our teams had taken to the new system, and didn’t really know. We knew that execution was much improved. What we didn’t know was why. Did our leadership all magically turn into serious taskmasters? Did our engineers seriously level up? Did our product managers start making perfect decisions? In order to find out, we crafted a set of team health standards, conducted a facilitated self-assessment with each team, and then asked each team to put together a plan to improve their health. We learned a lot along the way, about how to understand team health, and also about the shape, function, and dysfunction within our org.

In this talk we will share our journey, help you understand how to create psychological safety around a team health assessment, and show the kinds of things that we learned about the org. We will examine the project from a high-level project flow perspective, from an organizational change perspective, and share one team’s experiences on the ground.

--
Doors will open at 5:30 for networking with light food and drink before the program starts at 6pm. The program will conclude with a Q&A around 7:00pm.

About our presenters:

Brent Miller:
Brent is a botanist turned engineer turned agilist, whose work is now at the center of the spicy Venn diagram of humans, technology, and organizational design. He enjoys systems thinking and continuous improvement, and somehow continuously improved himself into his current career. He lives in Portland with his wife and two kitties.

Honey Darling:
Honey has built strong teams in a number of companies. She's a thoughtful leader: results-focused, calm and directed, and someone who builds teams that work together in the same direction. She is passionate about technology and people, and especially the intersection between the two. Honey believes in the power of collaboration, creativity, and continuous improvement.

Portland Java User Group (PJUG) - How to Protect against Deserialization Attacks
Oracle Portland

Insecure deserialization is one of the most critical web application security risks, yet it is by no means a new vulnerability category. Data serialization and deserialization have been used widely in applications, services and frameworks, with many programming languages supporting them natively. Deserialization got more attention recently as a potential vehicle to conduct several types of attacks: data tampering, authentication bypass, privilege escalation, various injections and, finally, remote code execution. Two recent vulnerabilities in Apache Commons and Apache Struts, both allowing remote code execution, helped raise awareness of this risk.

We will discuss how data serialization and deserialization are used in software, the dangers of deserializing untrusted input, and how to avoid insecure deserialization vulnerabilities.

Speaker:

Alexei Kojenov (https://twitter.com/kojenov) is a Senior Application Security Consultant with years of prior software development experience. During his career with IBM, he gradually moved from writing code to breaking code. Since late 2016, Alexei has been working as a consultant at Aspect Security, helping businesses identify and fix vulnerabilities and design secure applications. Aspect Security was recently acquired by Ernst&Young and joined EY Advisory cybersecurity practice.

CTRL-H - PDX Hackerspace - Open Hack Night!
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

This Friday's Open Hack Night is a little different. We hope you all can join us!

===============================================

Wild Me is a Portland non-profit that uses artificial intelligence to study endangered species. Right now, they’re performing a country-wide census of Grevy’s zebras and reticulated giraffes in Kenya called the Great Grevy’s Rally using nothing but photographs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLw_I1ghvLM

Hundreds of Kenyan tourists, biologists, and citizen scientists helped by taking all of these photos, but now their A.I. needs our help. They are teaching the A.I. to better identify zebras and giraffes in photos through a nice web interface where humans look at pretty pictures and match animals. Every decision we make will either make the population estimate go up or down, directly influencing the count! We'll see lots of original photos of African wildlife, genuinely help with conservation and science in Kenya, and maybe learn a thing or two about machine learning, computer vision, and convolutional neural nets in the process.

For your scientific contributions, there will be pizza!

If you want to join us in training A.I. for wildlife conservation — or if you just want to look at lots of pictures of zebras and giraffes while eating pizza — please bring a device that can connect to WiFi and run a Chrome or Safari web browser. Wild Me's non-profit staff will be here to hang out, participate, and guide us along.

===============================================

Every Second Friday is Open Hack Night here at ^H. Come hangout with us at the most happening (and productive) place in town! Hackerspace activities encompass Hardware, Software, Crafting/Textiles, all the Realities (Real, Virtual and Augmented), Infosec, Audio/Video, Cryptocurrencies, Gaming, you name it - if it's technology then it's in scope. Our Hackerspace is a place where people with an interest in computing or technology can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. There is plenty of table space, bandwidth and 3D printers (for those looking to try that out). Bring your ideas, works in progress, or something to show off. We'll see you there!
