  • Learn to Code | Thinkful Portland - How to Choose a Bootcamp

    CENTRL Office Eastside

    ***MUST RSVP ON EVENTBRITE HERE***


    Coding boot camps are short intensive accelerated programs to help you learn the skills, build a portfolio and transition careers like web development and data science. “With over 300 coding boot camps worldwide, you should do your research before choosing which code school will kickstart your career in tech,” says CourseReport

    It can be tough to know which one is right for you. Join us as we answer questions like do I enroll in an immersive or part-time bootcamp? What type of career coaching do I need? How do I make sense of outcome stats and guarantees? How is bootcamp learning better or worse than learning on my own? We will discuss what to consider starting with the question of how boot camps emerged and the personal traits you need to succeed.

    How to find us:

    This event will be held at CENTRL East.

    Human.School - the Conference for People Ops People

    Human.School is a development-focused learning experience designed for people operations people (official or unofficial!) - the administrative assistants, the operations coordinators, the office manages - in small, but growing companies or nonprofits.

    It’s unlike any conference you’ve been to before: you and 99 other professionals will experience two high-intensity, high value days of learning and applying experiences to create a full-fledged people ops strategy. You won't have to choose between concurrent sessions and speakers, and you'll be treated like a VIP the whole time. Human.School takes a practical approach to learning full cycle people operations, something most HR and culture events don’t do.

    The news at the end of 2017 was dominated by issues we encounter at the workplace regularly, so let’s talk about the part HR has played in our professional experiences. Have you seen or participated in particularly positive human resources instances? Do you have lessons to share from any “less than” situations? Hopefully, this ongoing discussion will provide support to all of us now and in the future.

  • Datalog, Data Transformation, and Apache Beam w/ Austin Haas

    Puppet

    Datalog is a powerful recursive query language that can be implemented in a few hundred lines of Clojure. It's a great introduction to logic programming and it can be used to solve real problems. It is also the basis for Datomic's query language.

    Apache Beam is a data processing library that runs on Google Dataflow, a serverless distributed computing service.

    In this presentation, I will explain Datalog, how it is used in Datomic, and how my team is using Datalog (in Clojure) to build flexible programs that transform large amounts of interdependent data in minutes with Apache Beam.

    Bio: Austin is a senior engineer at Healthsparq, where he uses Clojure to transform healthcare data. He has been programming in Clojure for about 7 years. His interests include Logic Programming, Automated Planning, and Game Development.

    AgilePDX Dntn Pub Lunch: How Do You Create a Healthy Team Norm?

    Teamwork is critical to agile methodologies and our lunch discussion topics show it. The March pub lunch will focus on what healthy team norms are.

    Team norms can help members understand how to interact with each other and how to conduct the daily business. This can include interpersonal items like respect, agreed tool usage, or company objectives such as time for cross-training and continued learning. What would you consider norms for a "healthy" team? As a team member, what have you experienced that you like (or that didn't work)? As a facilitator, what have you seen work well? How should such a team agreement be manifested and documented? And who should contribute to the content?

    Share your experience about teams creating their norms and standards, and listen to others offering their experiences how creating a team agreement can help and how to go about it.

    Digital Undergrounds: Tools for Radicals and Futurists

    We hear a lot about the entrepreneurs, engineers, and companies that shape the digital landscape. But what about the communities that radicalize and transform the world, enacting power from below, using digital technology?

    With a series of guest speakers and artists from Portland’s tech and creative scene, we will examine:

    • The question of digital globalization and the emergence of tech in Africa, Latin America, and in indigenous communities.
    • What it means to be an engineer: How do gender, race, and place affect who is recognized as such, and who is not?
    • The relationship of Black aesthetics, girl culture, and the global arts to the digital world, which draws heavily from this creativity in form and content.
    • Ways to advocate for distributing digital resources to marginalized groups in the Portland area and beyond.

    Instructor: Ali Colleen Neff, Ph.D. is a digital anthropologist, UX researcher, and the founder of CultureEncode, a center for advocacy and consulting for digital diversity.

  • Our Jobless Future: The Dangers and Possibility of a Post-Work World

    SE Uplift

    Capitalism loves automation. Since the beginning of industrialization 250 years ago, businesses have been replacing human labor with machines. For the last 60 years, globalization has shifted American labor to other countries. And now, the advent of artificial intelligence will eliminate even more jobs.

    In this course, we will:

    • Consider how a jobless future could create unmatched disruption and suffering -- or limitless opportunity for human flourishing.
    • Discuss how not to be a replaceable commodity in a gig economy.
    • Strategize how to position ourselves as stakeholders in the emerging automated economy.

    Instructor: Douglas Tsoi, JD, is the founder of Portland Underground Grad School (PUGS), a school for everyday life. Before PUGS, he managed a $4 million education and training program at the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance. Previous careers include teaching high school history and ethics, as well as being a intellectual property lawyer.

    Meets March 7, 14, 21, & 28 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

  • PDX Women in Tech How to Study for a Technical Interview

    AWS Elemental

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-how-to-study-for-a-technical-interview-tickets-42283419847] is required to avoid having to manually check-in at the event

    Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful proposition. It is hard to know what to expect and even how to prepare for it. Each company evaluates its candidates differently. Luckily, some upfront investment and preparation can really go a long way in helping you distinguish yourself from the rest of the candidates. In this seminar led by an Engineering Leader at Elemental, we will cover some common interviewing practices for technical interviews and what you may be able to do to get ready. We plan to cover many beneficial topics:

    • Morning preparation, attire, mindset • Preparation for the non-technical parts • How to study for the coding interview • How to execute the coding test

    Purpose:

    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
