    OWASP Portland Chapter Meeting - OAuth 2.0 Simplified

    NWEA

    OAuth 2.0 Simplified: The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework has become the industry standard in providing secure access to web APIs.

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.

    Speaker's Bio: 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.

    Serving People, Planet & Profits with Green IT | Oregon Enterprise Architect Event

    NWEA

    As global risks from climate change mount, organizations seek to conserve resources and take better care of the environment. Sustainability strategies realize corporate values, strengthen brands, attract environmentally conscious customers and employees, reduce resource expenditures and supply risks, and take advantage of government incentives. Green IT practices support sustainability strategies by reducing the use of hazardous materials, maximizing energy and natural resource efficiency, and promoting the use of recyclable and biodegradable materials. They are also essential to making major IT infrastructure investments cost-competitive.

    Corban Lester, who develops Green IT projects for Ameresco, an international energy services firm, will introduce the business and technical aspects of IT sustainability, describe several successful initiatives, and take questions from the audience. IT planning, architecture and procurement professionals will learn the basics of envisioning, planning, justifying and evaluating sustainable IT practices.

    Corban Lester is a project developer for Ameresco, an international energy services company. Until recently, he was a program development manager for Lockheed Martin. Corban performs data center energy audits and modeling, has led research & development for sustainable IT and data center solutions, and has developed measurement & verification methods for sustainable IT. He is also a vice chairman at The Green Grid Association, an international organization dedicated to advancing resource efficiency in information technology. He has written technical white papers on IT and data center energy efficiency for utilities on behalf of The Green Grid and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, and is a sought-after speaker on sustainable IT in the US.

    CHIFOO Presents: Finding the Awesome in Education feat. Karen Mahon

    NWEA

    There are hundreds of thousands of apps available in the app store and the numbers are ever increasing. A reasonable percentage of these apps focus on education. But there are few apps that quantify their effectiveness or value for the students who use them or the teachers and parents who purchase them.

    How can behavioral science, instructional design, gaming and UX/UI design assist in this effort, not only to build products that are effective and fun, but to define these metrics and educate consumers about how to identify them? What makes an app AWESOME and how can we quantify that? Not only in terms of fun, but in terms of teaching kids meaningful stuff! This talk will explore these questions, using example apps to illustrate the relevant features.

    This event is sponsored by Clarity Innovations, which is paying for non-members to attend for free. Seating is limited, so you should register in advance to be sure you have a seat!
