    Tech Academy Portland Meetup - Intro to Python: A Free Coding Class at The Tech Academy

    We run a code school. We hear from a lot of people we talk to that they're not sure whether they're interested in a job in the tech field, because they don't know enough about it. Sometimes, they've even been told that "programming is hard to learn."

    At The Tech Academy, we work hard to break down the barriers between people and technology. We think that, with the right approach, anyone can learn to code - and whether you end up working in technology or not, the principles behind coding are useful in a lot of areas.

    The Tech Academy is offering a free course providing an introduction to Python. Python is a popular programming language for general-purpose programming. It is particularly easy to learn for those new to coding.

    This course is perfect for people with little to no experience in programming who are curious about a career in software development.

    In this practical, hands-on class, you'll learn the basics of this popular computer language - and along the way, you should find out for yourself whether technology and coding are something worth looking into a bit more deeply.

    Please Note:
    ---Make sure to bring your laptop, as this will be a hands on learning process where you get to actually write your own code.
    ---An RSVP is needed to guarantee a seat in the class, though we may have a few open seats for last minute attendees.

    Startup Founders in Tech [1on1 Conversations over Video]

    Online.

    Startup Founders of Tech Startups Only

    We're startup founders building tech products to solve problems in the world. 

    We come together from different backgrounds and industries and it's this diversity that makes group members valuable to one another. Some of us code. Others do marketing. Some of us think we'll be fundraising forever... No matter, we've got overlapping challenges and experiences to share with each other for what to do (and just as importantly what not to do).

    So, if you're looking to get smarter and move faster with your business, join us. We meet the 4th Tuesday of the month at 4pm Eastern / 1pm Pacific. 

    Reach out if you have questions. 

    Whitney

    PS - If you're interested but not yet in the group, it's easy to join. RSVP for this event and I'll follow-up. We want to ensure the group remains as promised... a group of Startup Founders in Tech

  • Indie.vc v 3.0 - Winter Tour 2019

    Autodesk

    Over the last few years, we’ve had the chance to host many events that expose founders to an alternative universe where companies they’ve been told can’t be built without massive amounts of VC funding are thriving with little, to no, outside investment. We often start these events by warning attendees that they won’t be able to unsee what they’re about to see. Many leave these events with a whole new perspective on not only what is possible, but why limiting exposure the traditional venture business model is beneficial for founders, employees and the cultures and values they’re hoping to embody with their businesses.

    Rather than write another blog post or clever FAQ, we wanted to bring that same in-person experience to those considering investment from Indie.vc.

    Over the next 2 months, we’ll be embarking on a tour of most major metros in the US (we tried picking towns that were a short-ish road trip away from just about anywhere). Our goal with these info sessions is to share our experiences and motives directly with the Indie-curious. They are open to founders interested in taking investment from Indie.vc and Angels/Funds interested in funding companies the way we do. We’re planning to have some founders we’ve backed, and founders who’ve built and scaled profitable businesses, join us for these events to answer questions and share their experiences embracing the values and tactics we preach.

    RSVP at https://indie.vc

    Proudly hosted by PIE and PIE Shop in collaboration with Autodesk

  • Fail PDX

    Cloudability

    We are excited to present two failed presenters for January.

    Isaac Porras: People turning to Kickstarter to fund their awesome ideas should take a lesson from Isaac Porras. He is the second most failed creator on Kickstarter, with nearly 30 failed projects. If you are planning to Kickstart a project you shouldn’t miss Isaac share his cringe worthy stories of continued Kickstarter fails.

    Corey Guidry: Imagine, having a solid head start in online food delivery services in a young tech city like Portland. 8 months before Caviar, Uber Eats and Post Mates were operating, Delivery Dudes had the open Portland market in it’s sights. What happened? With such a head start, you’d think Delivery Dudes would be thriving in Portland, instead the project failed. Let’s learn about this business and hear this Fail first hand by one of the Portland Partners Corey Guidry.

    Each presenter will speak for 7-10 minutes followed by Q/A there will be some time for socializing before and afterward.

    Add Augmented Reality to your design portfolio in 2019

    52 Limited

    Description

    Worldwide, there are now over a billion mobile devices with augmented reality capabilities. Augmented reality (AR) apps let people see and interact with digital content in their physical reality. Apple, Facebook, and Snapchat have pioneered early techniques and technologies to insert digital images (and interactions) on top of real-world objects, but the possibilities of these channels remain relatively unexplored.

    We’re at an inflection point for user experience and interaction design. Whether or not we’ve planned for it, we’re all 3D designers now. It’s the perfect time to extend your design skills into this new reality.

    Jessica Outlaw of The Extended Mind, in partnership with Torch AR is offering a half-day workshop for designers and design producers. In this hands-on training, you will develop an understanding of immersive tech, interaction design in 3D space, and existing AR use cases. During the workshop, you’ll concept, plan, and build your own AR experience prototype.

    *No augmented reality experience or coding is needed. Space is limited. Details:

    Welcome 8:30 AM Workshop 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM

    Part 1: The state of the immersive technology today. You will demo mobile AR technology and learn about the range of use cases.

    Part 2: Techniques for AR interaction design. We will compare and contrast 2D & 3D design patterns.

    Part 3: Designing with Mobile AR. You will design and develop an interactive AR experience prototype for your portfolio.

  • Designing with Sound | Amber Case (live!)

    We're re-booting UX Book Club in the new year with something a little different!

    Fan favorite Amber Case will be hosting us (address will be sent to attendees) and giving a presentation on her new book Designing with Sound (and likely her other recent book Calm Technology).

    Questions and discussion included.

    Doors at 6:30. Presentation at 7:00

    Pre-order a hard copy of the book at Amazon (release date is Dec. 13): https://www.amazon.com/_/dp/1491961104

    Or read on O'Reilly's online learning platform, Safari: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920051923.do

    About the book:

    Sound can profoundly impact how people interact with your product. Well-designed sounds can be exceptionally effective in conveying subtle distinctions, emotion, urgency, and information without adding visual clutter. In this practical guide, Amber Case and Aaron Day explain why sound design is critical to the success of products, environments, and experiences.

    Just as visual designers have a set of benchmarks and a design language to guide their work, this book provides a toolkit for the auditory experience, improving collaboration for a wide variety of stakeholders, from product developers to composers, user experience designers to architects. You’ll learn a complete process for designing, prototyping, and testing sound.

    In two parts, this guide includes:

    ・Past, present, and upcoming advances in sound design ・Principles for designing quieter products ・Guidelines for intelligently adding and removing sound in interactions ・When to use voice interfaces, how to consider personalities, and how to ・build a knowledge map of queries ・Working with brands to create unique and effective audio logos that will ・speak to your customers ・Adding information using sonification and generative audio

    About the authors:

    Amber Case studies the interaction between humans and computers and how our relationship with information is changing the way cultures think, act, and understand their worlds. Case has spoken, performed and written about the future of sound design at conferences and events around the world. Case is also the author of Calm Technology (O'Reilly, 2015). She lives in Portland, Oregon and online @caseorganic.

    Aaron Day (who will not be in attendance) has been designing sound experiences and interfaces since 1998. He has worked for clients including Bruel & Kjaer, Fiat, Ferrari, Maserati, Wire, Mozilla, Qoros, Telefònica, Bosch, Vodafone, Sprint, Siemens Audi and Samsung. Aaron lives with his family in Berlin, Germany.

    All participants must read and abide by the Event Code of Conduct.

    Event Code of Conduct (Short Version):

    Be respectful of other people, respectfully ask people to stop if you are bothered, and if you can’t resolve an issue contact organizers. If you are being a problem, it will be apparent and you’ll be asked to leave.

    For a full Code of Conduct please see: http://cyborgcamp.com/code-of-conduct/

    Additionally, we respectfully ask that you do not tag the venue on social media.

  • PASCAL Hackerspace - AlgoBytes: Algorithms for Hackers!

    PASCAL

    PASCAL Hackerspace is happy to announce a new bimonthly workshop! One of the core goals of our organization is to provide educational opportunities to people in the information security and technical communities of Portland, and with AlgoBytes we get to do exactly that!

    AlgoBytes is an informal workshop series to learn a bit more about the formal foundations of the field of computer science and about core data structures/algorithms frequently used for interviews, whether you've never explored them before or need a refresher.

    Each 90 minute session we will focus on a different topic, although we may repeat them if there are requests to revisit material. Currently there will be 20-30 minutes of presentation, a walk through of a problem, followed by breaking into small groups to practice. Attending sequential events is probably helpful if the material is new to you, but not required.

    First Session's Theme: Analysis Foundations

    What is an algorithm, besides a scary word?
    I'm a practical person, why do I care?
    What is a data structure?
    What is complexity analysis?
    What is Big O? Big Theta? Big Omega?
    How do I apply them?

    Please bring your preferred note-taking device(s) and preferred scratch paper.

    A laptop with your editor & language of choice may be handy for trying out your solutions- especially important if you are prepping for technical interviews, but is not at all required.

    The PASCAL board is excited to be hosting this event alongside a very accomplished and brilliant woman in security-

    Allison Marie Naaktgeboren is a Senior Software Engineer. She has previously written (and regretted) code at Mozilla, Amazon, Cisco, FactSet Research Systems, and the Biorobotics Laboratory in Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute. Allison holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

    Allison is a mentor in the PDXWiT mentorship program, supports the Women Who Code Portland Algorithms track, and mentors high school students in robotics and programming (Go Rebel @lliance!) She is a member of PASCAL & the OWASP Portland chapter.

  • PASCAL Hackerspace - Tools That Pwn: A Hacker Symposium

    PASCAL

    This Saturday at PASCAL we are offering a Hacker Symposium of sorts, featuring a few handy tools of the trade as well as two major frameworks often used in developing exploits and attacking systems or networks. We will be surveying several of the tools that are part of Kali, and easy to install on any Debian derived distro. It seems many folks, sometimes even the professionals already hip deep in the field of tech, are unaware of the power their packages wield! The wild hacker kidz at PASCAL are going to show you how to get started with packaged/pre-loaded tools like Burp Suite, Binwalk, Wireshark, Kismet and will also provide you with an overview of the Metasploit and Volatility frameworks. Come take your first step with Reverse Engineering at PASCAL using Binwalk! Excuse yourself and set up a proxy with Burp Suite! Breath deep and sniff packets with Kismet! Enjoy these puns and more, in person with Cylon and the rest of the misfit hackers of PDX!

    We will set aside time to answer questions, and hold demonstrations of each utility discussed. This is all about what YOU want to learn!! Questions? please email Cylon--> [masked]. PASCAL also has a Discord server as means of communication regarding upcoming events, news in infosec and memes (inquire within).
    If you RSVP and are no longer able to make it, please do take the time to change your RSVP so that someone else may attend, even if it is only an hour before! Thanks!

  • Addictive By Design: How Our Phones Hijacked Our Lives and What We Can Do About It [Portland Community Design Thinkers]

    Vacasa

    One thing that became abundantly clear in 2018 is that our relationships with our phones, and digital technologies in general, began to seem less like a partnership and more like an indentured servitude.

    The zeitgeist last year was saturated with terms like “digital attention crisis,” “distraction addiction,” “mindful tech,” ethical technology,” and “time well spent.” When, in August, Facebook and Instagram introduced a new dashboard to tell us how long we’ve spent inside their apps, they were responding to a groundswell of concern that these apps are hijacking our attention in ways that are not aligned with users’ best interests but, rather, mainly with the interests of advertisers. “Engagement,” the chief currency of Silicon Valley since the first personalized ad appeared, has become inextricably linked with the hidden design practices that prioritize user time on platform above all other considerations. As a result, we’ve all begun to feel the pinch of “the cost of free.”

    In 2018 some of us started pushing back. People like former Google Design Ethicist Tristan Harris and groups like the Center for Humane Technology sought to make our digital tools more human-centered, more accountable and maybe a little less less powerful -- and their views flipped from fringe to the mainstream in what has been called a “techlash.”

    On January 29, we’ll gather for a hands-on look at how design is at the heart of this issue: the bottomless newsfeeds, the limited menu choices, the proliferating Autoplay function, notifications set to “ON” by default, and all the intermittent variable rewards that turn our phones into slot machines with dopamine payouts.

    We’ll examine our own relationships to our devices and the apps we can’t stop looking at. And we’ll explore what a truly human-centered digital ecosystem could look like.

    PCDT organizer Patrick Sharbaugh will be joined by Dr. Dan Rubin, a Portland clinical psychologist who specializes in mindfulness-based psychotherapy and is an adjunct professor of psychology of Maitripa College, where he teaches courses on the intersection of psychology and Buddhism. Dan and Patrick are both active members of the Community for Humane Technology, the outreach arm of the Center for Humane Technology whose aim is to align technology to humanity's best interests.

    Bring your mobile device. You’ll need it!

    If you are unable to attend, please update your RSVP to open your seat for another attendee.

    How do you define trust? When organizational culture fosters trust, what does that look like and how does it benefit the org? When trust is missing, what are the consequences? Why is it critical for executives and development teams to have relationships based on trust and how do we go about establishing and fostering trust between the two?

    Regardless of how you define trust, it’s a critical pillar in thriving, innovative organizations.

    Join in the discussion and offer your experience, musings, or ideas.

    Everyone is invited. You are always welcome within our community of practice. Please join us at Ringlers Pub for great food, great conversation, and good beer.

    Note: Cancellations will be posted on MeetUp and Calagator at least 3 hours before event time. We will not have the event in ice, or snowy conditions.
