I want to work for _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (this month is InvisionApp)
Forge Portland

We are super-thrilled to welcome our October special guest, Dana Lawson. Dana is the VP of Platform Engineering at InvisionApp. And the cool part is InvisionApp is a very remote-friendly company (more about this at the meetup session). Dana Lawson on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dglawson Invision on Twitter: https://twitter.com/invisionapp

Dana and I worked together at New Relic for about a year. The first thing anyone notices about Dana is her electrifying energy and her sharp sense of humor. You can tell right away that working with her would be super-fun and you could get lots of things accomplished with little or no stress. Dana’s illustrious career record proves my theory :) Dana had great opportunities to wear many hats throughout her 18 year career in technology.

Earlier this year, Dana wanted to take these lessons learned from being in that crazy world and do it all over again, but better! So when the opportunity came to build out a Platform Engineering organization at InVision she decided to take that chance.

This is just a teaser for all the goodness you can expect at the actual meetup. As always, you have our PERSONAL GUARANTEE that this meetup is the best value for your precious ~2 hours away from friends/family :)

I want to work for _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ meetup
Forge Portland

Join our very special meetup session this Wednesday, May 10th 6:00pm to 8:30pm at Forge Portland. Our special guests this month are Scott Judkins, CEO of PayTrace and Trevor Redfern, CTO of PayTrace! PayTace is a super unique “remote-first” company. They are based out of Spokane, WA but most of the technology and business development staff members are based all over WA, OR and Idaho! Over the years, they built a very robust remote-first culture and have been thriving the last couple years. The company is growing at 35% per year and adding a lot of new tech staff (developers, QA and infrastructure folks). PayTrace has also built an intentional culture and goes to great lengths to nourish their values and build a great team-oriented workplace. They currently use the following technologies: Ubuntu, python, ruby, Ruby-on-rails, PostgresSQL, SQL Alchemy etc.

If you are looking to learn about a fast growing technology company that thrives on remote teams in the open-source world, you should definitely join!!

SSH: Swiss Army Knife of Networking
Free Geek

SSH is a fundamental tool used in networking outside of Microsoft Windows, such as Cisco routers or Linux computers. By the end of this class, you will be able to be able to connect via the SSH tool to computers for administration, enabling you to make remote commands and file transfers.

Some command line experience recommended.
