    PRESENTATION

    Lessons Learned: City of Portland’s Move to the Cloud

    Over the last few years, the City of Portland has slowly moved a variety of services to cloud providers. The most prominent move was its transition to Microsoft Office 365. Come hear about what motivates, as well as paralyzes, organizations like the City from embracing the cloud. Logan Kleier will discuss how to handle organizational bureaucracy, limited internal technical skills, and budget concerns as part of the process of moving large organizations to cloud services.

    SPEAKER

    Logan Kleier is the CEO and Founder of SecondSight, a software analytics startup based in Portland. Prior to this, he was the Information Security Officer for the City of Portland where he managed policy and operational security for the City’s infrastructure and applications. He has also worked for the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) as well as several wireless and broadband startups in the DC area. Logan has a BA from Trinity University and a Masters from Georgetown.

    Working with TypeScript Definitions

    Your TypeScript code doesn't live in isolation. In fact, almost every application that you develop using TypeScript will need to interact with libraries or frameworks that are written in JavaScript. Sometimes this code is from a third party, sometimes it's your own.

    TypeScript definition files allow you to leverage these assets in your projects, without having to sacrifice the benefits of working with pure TypeScript.

    In this talk, we'll show how to use the command line tool Typings to find and consume definition files for popular libraries and frameworks. We'll also walk through the process of writing your own definition file, for those times when a library or framework (either third party or your own) doesn't have a definition file available.

    About the Presenters

    Peter Snider

    {
        recently: 'passionate about using TypeScript for full-stack development',
        previously: 'helped build all parts of connected and autonomous vehicle navigation and traffic systems'
    }

    James Churchill

    James has worked extensively with a variety of technologies, including ASP.NET MVC, SQL Server, JavaScript, TypeScript, Knockout.js, and AngularJS. James, a self-confessed geek, enjoys talking about programming and learning new technologies. He recently joined the Treehouse team as a teacher and is excited to have the opportunity to help beginners become developers. James also enjoys participating in the greater Northwest developer community, presenting talks in Portland, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Boise, Eugene, Salem, and Hood River.

  • Google Development Group (GDG) PDX Meetup - All About Kotlin

    This month we're going to discuss Kotlin! If you haven't heard of Kotlin, it's a new language created by JetBrains (the people behind the people behind Android Studio). Kotlin is 100% compatible with java and android, and can be used in existing android projects mixed with java classes. There is incredible IDE support and the language itself is very modern, borrowing many concepts from functional languages such as Scala, but being much more accessible to java developers.

    We will have a presentation about Kotlin basics and I encourage you to bring laptops to play with it as we will reserve some time for group work where we all play with the language together.

    If you want to participate in that portion of the meetup, please have Android Studio installed along with the Kotlin plugin.

    Details of Kotlin can be found at:

    http://kotlinlang.org/

    As always, excellent food and drink will be provided by our generous sponsor, eBay

At Battery, he advises the firm and its portfolio companies about technology issues and also assists with deal sourcing and due diligence.

    Before joining Battery, Adrian helped lead Netflix’s migration to a large scale, highly available public-cloud architecture and the open sourcing of the cloud-native NetflixOSS platform. Prior to that at Netflix he managed a team working on personalization algorithms and service-oriented refactoring.

    Adrian was a founding member of eBay Research Labs, developing advanced mobile applications and even building his own homebrew phone, years before iPhone and Android launched. As a distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems he wrote the best-selling “Sun Performance and Tuning” book and was chief architect for High Performance Technical Computing.

    He graduated from The City University, London with a Bsc in Applied Physics and Electronics, and was named one of the top leaders in Cloud Computing in 2011 and 2012 by SearchCloudComputing magazine. He can usually be found on Twitter @adrianco.

  • AgilePDX Dntn Pub Lunch: How do Agile developers feel about DevOps?

    How do Agile teams think and feel about DevOps?

    DevOps is a term for a group of concepts that, while not all new, have catalyzed into a movement and are rapidly spreading throughout the technical community. Like any new and popular term, people have somewhat confused and sometimes contradictory impressions of what it is.

    Here’s one take: DevOps is the practice of operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support.

    Here's another: DevOps is also characterized by operations staff making use many of the same techniques as developers for their systems work - such as: using source control to testing to participating in an Agile development process - like sprints or kanban and regular check-ins to communicate with the entire team.

    You may have your own take - so come join the discussion and share.

    The Downtown Pub Lunchers care enough to have voted this topic in last month with a participating attendance of 40 pub grub munching agilists. Come on down and help us sort this one out. You probably have the answer. There’s beer, and we’ll be in the back.

    Coding Summer Camps
    through
    Catlin Gable School

    CodeVana is partnering with Catlin Gabel Summer Camps to bring four exciting summer camps. Through these camps children will discover the joy of coding. These camps are created by industry professionals and students and will be week long in the beautiful 60-acre campus in Southwest Portland of the Catlin Gabel School. Sessions run July 5 - July 22, 2016, and are open to all children in the Portland metro area. Please REGISTER at https://www.catlin.edu/page.cfm?p=1005&LockSSL=true and bring the joy of coding not only to your child but also youth who don't have access. Sign up for the camp and help youth who do not have the resources to enjoy a free coding camp through CodeVana’s Community Building initiative. The four camps offered are as follows:

    CodeVana: Digital Game Explorers [July 5-8th] In this summer camp, students are introduced to the joy of coding and programming through games, simulations and they will also learn to become digital creators by creating minecraft mods or digital newspapers/videos. They will present their work in an end of the week show and tell. Students ages 7-10 have an option of full day camp or a half day camp.

    CodeVana: Breakaway with Code & Things [July 5-8th] [July 18-22nd] In this summer camp, 10-14 year old students will learn to code, make, play while using Internet of Things and integrate their understanding of math and science through computing/games as well as learning how their minds and brains work. This camp is experiential in nature and will focus on collaboration, and creation. Middle Schoolers have an option of full day camp or a half day camp.

    CodeVana: Girls Make Apps [July 11-15th] Girls and women in the U.S. are avid users of computer technology, but they are significantly underrepresented in its creation. CodeVana is bringing a fun girls only camp organized by girls/women to help girls discover the joy of building, computer science, and coding. Girls will build Games, play with Internet Of Things, design and deploy Web & Mobile Apps in a collaborative and creative environment as well as explore science, math, and social aspects of women in technology. We invite middle school (7th-8 graders) and high school girls to join us. Girls will make Web Apps, Mobile Apps, and Game Apps in a collaborative and creative environment.

    CodeVana: Startup Engineering [July 11-15] High School students are invited to make their ideas into reality through building and making with computing. They will learn all the engineering and customer development skills to build a technology startup. On July 15th, students will pitch their ideas and prototypes to the community and win prizes to continue to pursue their ideas through a community vote.

    We'll have pizza & beer starting at 6pm, so stop by early if you want to have dinner and socialize before the presentations.

    PRESENTATIONS at 7pm

    After presentations we'll have more socializing time.

    Thanks to New Relic for providing the venue and beer, pizza & snacks this month!

    ARRIVING BY BIKE? Cyclists are welcome to park their bikes in the New Relic office. Bikes are not allowed in the building lobby, however, and must use the freight elevator. To get your bike up to the 29th floor, enter the building's parking lot by going down the ramp at 5th and Pine. Go past the booth -- no need to pick up a ticket -- and turn right. Go straight until you almost run into the elevator lobby, then go right again. On the back side of the elevator block you'll see a beat up pair of double doors marked "freight elevator." You can get up by buzzing in with the intercom, and saying you're here for New Relic. Ride on up to the 29th floor, you'll easily find the bike parking.

    ABOUT THE GROUP: The Portland Ruby Brigade, also known as pdxruby and pdx.rb, is a user group for Ruby programmers in the Portland, Oregon area. The group welcomes all programmers interested in the language and its implementations, tools, libraries and frameworks, such as Ruby on Rails. The group has been meeting since August 2002 for presentations, demos and discussions. Every month 35-75 people come together to share their knowledge, projects and enthusiasm for Ruby. If you'd like to present or have a topic you'd like discussed, please post to the mailing list. The group usually meets on the first Tuesday of the month, "Ruby Tuesday" -- see you there!

    Join us for First Thursday at CENTRL Office! Back Pedal Brewing Co will be serving beer and we will have small bites from World Foods! Artist Reid Trevarthan will be displaying his collage artwork. About Reid’s artwork: “In making my collages, I try to mimic the process of going through life. I build up images using small individual pieces that both have meaning on their own, but also gain meaning through interacting with other pieces. I try to echo life’s unpredictability by introducing elements whose effects on the artwork are only clear after they’ve been glued down. Sometimes the effect is positive, sometimes less so. But trying to imagine how the piece could have been different is almost as futile as wondering how one’s life could be different. It would not be less of a piece, just a different one.”

    Schmizza Pub & Grub in the Pearl will also be joining us with pizza samples and New Seasons Market will be sampling their desserts!

    Looking forward to a fun event with Amazon Prime Now on July 7th!

By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE documentary examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.

    A special thanks to The OpenStack Foundation, a donating sponsor for this screening.

    Failures Before Successes

    New Relic

    Entrepreneurs are born from all walks of life, but they are forged into great leaders in the fire of execution and error. Their trials and tribulations cause setbacks and sometimes lead to the end of a company, but those who can recover are better for it. In the entrepreneurial world, broken bones heal much stronger and scars carry valuable lessons. We have gathered a group of successful entrepreneurs who will be sharing some of their stories of strife, how they overcame and were better for it.

    Join us as we partner with New Relic for their FutureTalks on July 11th. Tyler Phillipi will moderate a panel of seasoned entrepreneurs as they share their stories of learning lessons and success in the Portland tech community.
