  • PDX Engineering Managers - PDX Eng Mgrs Talk: The Need to Belong: The Neuroscience of Inclusion

    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 Rachel Etnire! Title: "The Need to Belong: The Neuroscience of Inclusion".

    Description:
    What happens to our brains when we’re rejected in social situations or made to feel less than? Surprisingly, the neuroscience behind these reactions is similar to that of our early ancestors - but their survival was at stake. Most of the threats that our brains now face involve inclusion ( or lack of) in our workplace. In this talk I will address diversity and inclusion, with a focus on inclusivity and the neuroscience behind it.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    ISSA Portland: DNS’s role in Securing Your Network

    Columbia Square building

    When it comes to your business, your network is the gateway to the world. Unfortunately, protecting your network from evolving threats is more difficult than ever. Device proliferation, BYOD, Internet of Things, virtualization, hybrid cloud adoption—all are crucial trends that enhance business performance. But they also add complexity and increase the attack surface. DNS is an essential component of network connectivity, but it has emerged as the number one threat vector for malware command and control, DDoS attacks, and data exfiltration. Even as your network modernizes and gains valuable new capabilities, threats multiply exponentially. During this session, learn more about DNS, threats to DNS infrastructure, and different methods to address these threats.

    Speaker bio:

    Kevin Zettel is a security-focused Technical Marketing Engineer who works with Infoblox to lock down the DNS and secure it for enterprises. Kevin knows that security is the center focus of companies and believes that without security, industries will unquestionably fall apart. Kevin has worked with the Infoblox Security Ecosystem to manage many security vendors such as McAfee, Cisco, ServiceNow, Aruba, and many others. He knows the security landscape and sees the necessity and demand that businesses have to secure their capital. With a degree from Central Washington University and an education in programming, Kevin has the technical know how to get secured.

  • Power BI Flight School @ Office 365 PDX

    Marquam

    Looking to get started with Power BI?

    Bring your laptop to this hands-on tutorial on Microsoft Power BI. At this meeting of Office 365 PDX we’ll be talking about how end-users can get to work with Power BI. We're thinking of this class as a "Power BI Flight School", where we are teaching the basics of how end-users will navigate and use Power BI, not how to build or maintain complex reports.

    We will dive into viewing dashboards, reports, understanding natural language query, Excel, and the other tools a user needs. No prior experience with Power BI is necessary, this session is not very technical, and we’ll be handing out log-in information to get you hands-on in a pre-built environment. Just bring a modern laptop with wifi and an up-to-date web browser.

  • Emacs Monthly Meetup

    Tonight, we're gathering over sharing a collection of lightning talks show-casing new things we've learned or built...essentially, live demos of our #cool-til Slack channel 😄 ... including showing a system running EXWM (the Emacs X Window Manager) where Emacs runs regular applications inside an Emacs buffer. Why? Well having a full featured, but light-weight and essentially mouseless window manager would work well on older systems.

    Feel free to attend or participate, and if you can't make it physically, please join us virtually: http://meet.jit.si/pdxemacs

    After our show and tell session, we'll retire to a nearby restaurant for food and drinks. Hope to see you there.

    Hack the Dot!

    Puppet

    Hack the Dot is a hackathon where code school students, working developers, marketing and design professionals, and anyone else interested in the Web come together to build ideas. Use your skills in web development, storytelling, and creative ideation to build a humorous (maybe even functional!) product, while meeting people in your tech/startup community. This quarter we're teaming up with pdxFLIT and Puppet Labs. Join us!

    How does it work?

    At a domain-driven hackathon, all of the teams are given a single premium domain name at the beginning of the event. All teams then have two hours to come up with a product inspired by that domain, fueled by food and beverage. Whichever team builds and pitches the most creative and funny idea for the domain wins!

    Prizes include the premium domain name itself, plus swag from our sponsors!

    Timeline

    6:00 - Meet with teams, get food and drink

    6:15 - MC introductions, reveal the night's domain name!

    6:30 - Start hacking!

    8:30 - Stop hacking, team presentations

    9:15 - End presentations, announce winner

    Do I need to bring a team?

    Nope! Teams are formed randomly at the beginning.

    Quantified Self Conference
    through
    Ziba Design - Auditorium

    What can you learn about yourself using your own data?

    The Quantified Self conference is where DIY toolmakers, scientists, caregivers and patients, athletes, teachers, and everybody else interested in "self-knowledge through numbers" get together to share their projects and exchange what they'relearning about self-tracking tools and methods. This year we'll have a special focus on learning from our own data both inside and outside of the classroom. Tools that will be discussed include blood assays, home-built environmental monitors, and effective tools for emotional self-assessment. Want to build your own metabolism tracking device? Curious about the effect of circadian rhythms on cholesterol? Interested in genomics, microbiome, fitness, and diet? As always, we'll have two days of first person "show&tell" reports about self-tracking and learning in all these domains - and more.

    The program is what we call a carefully curated unconference. We look at the projects and ideas proposed by everybody who registers, learn as much as we can, and then craft a series of talks and discussions reflecting the latest knowledge in the QS community. You can get a good look at the style of the meeting by watching some of the talks we've been posting from past conferences at http://quantifiedself.com/.

    Join us! (And please don't forget to post something about your work in answer to the survey questions when you register.)

  • PDX People of Color in Tech - ReLAUNCH

    Hi folks! We've been out of commission for a while but we're relaunching! I
    I'll be sending out the location soon (suggestions welcome), but I'd like to meet so that we can talk about what we want and need from this Meetup. Tab and I started it to build community and we have done that, a little. We could do so much more!
    We could be a hub for job/contract opportunities.
    We could have working dates.
    We could bid on contracts together.
    We can and should help one another to grow and be successful in every way possible. I subscribe to "I am because we are. We are because I am." also known as "Ubuntu".

  • PASCAL Hackerspace - Hacking+PASCAL=Hack2Learn

    Hack2Learn is a monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to all the various types of challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
    Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!
    For the first Hack2Learn meetup, we will walk you through the setup process, starting with installing a virtual machine and setting up a beginner friendly Linux environment (Kali counts as beginner friendly, right?), followed by a lightning lesson on command line. Once everyone is ready, we will dive right in to a STEMCTF challenge created by MITRE Cyber Academy. Basic understanding of at least one programming language and/or security concepts is helpful, but not necessary. Honestly, when we say all you need is a desire to learn, we mean it!
    If you have a laptop, bring it. We have a handful of loaners for those who need them, as well as several desktop PCs for use at the hackerspace. So, brush off your social anxiety, leave your impostor syndrome at the door, and let your inner hacker take a crack at capture the flag- PASCAL edition!

    Questions? email [masked], or leave a comment on the meetup page (though we tend to not check that as often.)

    Female Founders Alliance: Ready Set Raise Program
    through
    TBD

    All - The FFA Ready Set Raise program is coming to on one of it's stops across America this summer. The event is tentatively on 8/10, location and all good things TBD. Watch this for updates and email me if you have questions. Kristine Campbell, FFA member in Oregon [email protected]

    Every founder knows raising capital is hard. And given that only 2% of venture capital is invested in female founded companies, what is already a moonshot for men is exponentially harder for women. You’re routinely and consistently underestimated, dismissed, ignored, ghosted, and judged by impossible standards - and that’s if you get in the door to begin with. Welcome to fundraising while female.

    Last year, FFA member Laura Malcolm (Founder/CEO of Give InKind) posted an idea to our online forum: she suggested that we join forces and help each other pitch to investors. That's why a few of us got together and organized our own version of a Demo Day. The result was last year’s Founders Showcase.

    Fast forward a year. Today, FFA has 4x more members, a growing team, a much bigger and more influential network of investors, and the help of world class sponsors like Davis Wright Tremaine’s Project W.

    So as we thought about reprising the event that put us on the map, we asked ourselves: what would a fundraising program look like if it was designed for female founders, by female founders?

    Our answer is called Ready. Set. Raise.™ We can't wait to tell you all about it. For now, please save the date for Demo Day on September 27th.

  • "Tungsten Fabric: Open Source Multi-Cloud Networking at Scale" @ PAzUG

    Marquam

    Tungsten Fabric (http://www.tungsten.io; formerly OpenContrail) is an open source, scalable and multi-cloud networking platform. Large enterprises and service providers are using it at massive production scale, and this meetup offers some tips, insights, and "don't go theres" from users with success stories (and some battle scars).

    Come to this meetup to learn how users are deploying Tungsten Fabric for load balancing, HA, service chaining, analytics/orchestration and extending network to multi private / public clouds viz., AWS, Azure and Google.

    Sanju Abraham will be our speaker. Sanju Abraham will deliver a project overview, showcase users and use cases. Then, we’ll dive into a demo of Kubernetes with Tungsten Fabric across onprem and AWS. We’ll demonstrate the ability to access Kubernetes and launch new containers, access the Tungsten Fabric UI, and observe the network state.

    Tungsten Fabric is integrated with Kubernetes, VMware and OpenStack. It also supports public cloud deployments including AWS, Google and Azure. As both Enterprise and Telco IT architectures evolve, supporting multi-cloud environments is table stakes. This meetup will lay out how users can quickly get going with Tungsten Fabric, using software-driven networking and policy management to operate in a multi-cloud environment.

    If you’re interested in networking for private clouds running OpenStack, Kubernetes, and VMware that also rely on services from AWS, Google and Azure, this meetup is for you!

    Agenda:

    5:00pm – Welcome time 5:30pm – Catering served 5:45pm – Group announcements and presentation 7:30pm – Wrap up.

  • Women Who Code Portland - Open Source Study Night: Security

    Planet Argon

    Open Source Study Night is specifically designed for people who would like to start contributing to open source, or have open source work that they'd like to do with others.

    This month's theme: Security and Open Source. This month's study night will feature a presentation by Michaela "Miki" Demeter, Security Researcher at Intel!

    When looking at open source packages, how do you decide what to incorporate and what to leave behind? Ultimately, your goal is to minimize your company and your teams' exposure to risk. “Minimizing risk” doesn't mean analyzing every line of code, but does involve evaluating a project's community. Can you trust them to do work at the quality that you can feel comfortable with in your releases? Are they doing proactive security work and fixing bugs quickly?

    Miki has worked for the Open Source Technology Center at Intel for 5 years, and is an expert on open source communities. You'll walk away with a better understanding of how to choose open source libraries for your projects.

    Come prepared with:
    Laptop/Computer
    IDE of your choice
    * Git/GitHub or GitLab. If you don't know git, we'll teach you!

    Thanks to our sponsor, Planet Argon, for hosting this event.

  • #FullStackPDX : September : Critique

    Just like fight club, if this is your first night attending, you have to present.

    Discussing your startup, recent project, code reviews, business ideas, etc. are all applicable. There is not a required length of time to present. This can be a live prototype or even a set of powerpoint slides. You do not have to know how to code to present your dream, and we are HERE TO HELP you. Presentations are meant to be collaborative, not the traditional meetup style where a presenter talks like a teacher for a very long time and saves questions for the end. We use a timer and the group dynamic works to collaboratively prevent cross talk and side conversations. So bring your computer, fun spirit and desire to learn, and let's have fun.

    Signups through meetup.com are required and seats are limited, so buy your tickets early because we usually sell out. We are self funded, and 100% of the revenue received is put back into the meetup costs. We will have top shelf pizza from Crown PDX (http://www.imperialpdx.com/the-crown/) so come HUNGRY for dinner!!

    Doors open at 6pm and we kick off on time. After the concert of presentations we will walk over to Bailey's Taproom (http://www.baileystaproom.com/) to continue the evening.

    Location: WeWork Customs House : Room 1C : When you check in ask for CP Handheld, they are our sponsor. The room is right to the left as you walk in.
