    Galois tech talk: An Overview of Emerging Cybersecurity Policy and Law

    Galois Inc

    abstract:

    Why is cybersecurity such a hard problem? The US government, its citizens, and the organizations that write software are all on the same team, but in many cases, our interests are just not aligned. For instance, there have been endless political and social disagreements about the best way to share cyber threat intelligence without sacrificing consumer privacy.

    It’s these competing concerns that are the kink in our collective armor and that’s what our adversaries exploit, day-in and day-out.

    In this talk, Isaac will present the high-level strategic concerns and challenges in the cybersecurity industry, how those challenges interact with emerging policy and law, and how those policies will impact you.

    bio:

    Isaac is a security researcher at Galois where he has lead authentication and collaboration projects for the DoD and IC. Isaac earned his master’s degree in Cybersecurity from the University of Maryland, University College, and his B.S. in Computer Science from Ohio State University. In 2013, Isaac founded Tozny, a Galois spin-off company aimed at solving the password conundrum. Easier and more secure than passwords, Tozny replaces passwords with an easy-to-use cryptographic key on a user’s mobile phone.

  • eBay Tech Tuesdays: Accessibility Part 1: Creating an Inclusive Workplace

    This month's Tech Tuesday will be Part 1 of a two-part series on accessibility for people with disabilities. The focus of the evening will be on how employers and employees can work together to create an environment where every member of the team can thrive.

    Our speakers will be sharing their personal and professional insights on accessibility in the workplace. Please understand that this evening isn’t about policies and procedures, although chances are good you’ll learn something on that front. Instead, it's designed as an opportunity to have conversations about attitudes, perspectives, and stigmas about disabilities.

    Speakers:

    • Cory Klatnik, Data Center Social Media & Community Manager, Intel

    Cory was one of the organizers for last year's Startup Weekend Access and is legally blind. He'll be speaking about his personal experiences in the workplace, as well as sharing his thoughts on what employers and co-workers can do to create a more inclusive workplace.

    • Incight.org

    Incight.org is a 501(c) 3 non-profit that supports and empowers key life aspects of education, employment, and independence for people with disabilities. A representative from the organization will be speaking on attitudes, perspectives, and stigmas, as they pertain to employees with disabilities.

    • Diana Laboy-Rush, Mobile App Developer, Aruba Networks

    Diana recently worked on a small team developing a product for people with significant hearing loss. Her team members included one person who was completely deaf. She will be talking about what she expected, what the reality was, what she learned about her own perceptions, and what she would recommend for others who find themselves in her place.

    As usual, I'm really excited about these speakers. I think the combination of experiences and perspectives and knowledge are going to lead to some really interesting and thoughtful conversations and questions.

    Part 2 will be happening Tuesday, August 25th. That Meetup will be focused on accessibility as it pertains to developing technologies, websites, apps, and more. Please save the date!

    Both evenings we will have an ASL interpreter during the presentations and Q&A.

    As usual, doors open at 5:45pm and we’ll have pizza & sodas for you.

    Presentation starts at 6:30pm.

    We look forward to seeing you!

  • Wearable Electronics Kits

    Urban Airship

    What's better than buying wearables? Making your own! We'll look at a few wearable development kit options, many are so easy they don't require any specialized knowledge to make the next big thing!

    We have the pleasure of digging into the WearDuino development kit with its creator Mark Leavitt. WearDuino is a local creation by pdxwhl.org, and is an open platform for innovation in wearable health technology. WearDuino highlights:

    • Open hardware, firmware, software and physical design
    • Simple: coin-cell battery, Bluetooth low energy wireless
    • Modular: experiment freely with sensor innovations
    • Wearable in multiple body locations with different attachments
    • Smaller, lighter, thinner and 5x less expensive than Apple Watch

    We're also thrilled to host Camille Dodson who will show off LilyPad, another Arduino based development kit. It's not as focused on healthcare as WearDuino, but is a great way for Makers to easily get their feet wet building and sharing cool wearable projects.

    We'll look at other Wearable dev kits as well, and if you have any, feel free to bring them along! We love show and tell.

  • Elixir Games PDX

    Puppet Labs

    Last time we looked at Supervisor hierarchies, and unintentionally on my part almost everyone picked up the GenServer behavior as a component of their solution. Damnable misleading documentation! However that prompted a further conversation about GenServers and other components of OTP (the Open Telecom Platform). In the spirit of learning and disambiguating things we'll take a deeper look at some of these architectural patterns in Elixir and how they can help us better organize our projects and design better systems.

    For the newcomers, the "Games" format is designed to create a bit of friendly competition and is accessible for all ranges of experience; beginners and pros alike.

    If you'd like to take a look at the previous sessions' exercises feel free to check them out here: https://github.com/elixir-pdx/, some submitted solutions are available on non-master branches.

    Early in this series we'll be focusing mostly on solving problems in a functional paradigm, and as the series continues over time we'll move more and more toward Elixir's differentiators; Erlang interop, hygienic macros, & OTP patterns.

    If all that read like gibberish to you, don't worry you don't have to know any of that jargon, and by the time you do everything will already make sense. Because we'll introduce ideas and concepts in a way that will help you understand those things conceptually before you ever need a weird name for them.

    Food and drinks will be provided. There will also be small desk fodder prizes for the winning team.

    Please make sure you come with a computer to work on and have Elixir pre-installed locally or in a VM and ready to go.

    http://elixir-lang.org/install.html

    Special thanks to my friends Jeff Weiss and Puppet Labs, ‘the leader in IT automation’, for hosting us.

    TiE Speaker Series: Confessions of An Entrepreneur (and Investor) – Robin Jones Maloney

    TiE Members: FREE; Public: $25 Register at the link above!

    Join us for Confessions Of An Entrepreneur (and Investor) with TiE Charter Member and Board Member Robin Jones Maloney.

    In a past life, Robin was an investor. She has also been an entrepreneur and founder, startup advisor and mentor. Currently she is an executive with a company that went from startup (Geoloqi) to being acquired by ESRI. Along the way, she got a unique view on entrepreneurship from many different positions and vantage points.

    At our upcoming event, Robin will share some compelling confessions with us, such as: insights from her early career "on the inside" as a corporate venture capital manager, and some of the less-than-entrepreneur-friendly terminology she and her co-investors used; the elements of a pitch and business plan that she would pay closest attention to as an investor, and why; and her (torturous) experience raising funds for her first company, and the differences between the Silicon Valley and Oregon funding environment.

    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!

  • Monthly Maker Meetup

    CymaSpace

    Make it here! Have some projects you'd like to work on, but could benefit from a creative atmosphere? OSH Park and CymaSpace team up to offer just the space!

    We will supply wifi, and a place to share ideas and collaborate with a community of fellow creators and makers. We'll share tips and tricks, and support your creative endeavors! The goal for the meetup is to support the local creative scene while providing an opportunity for people to build a network with people of varied skills. Makers, crafters, and creators of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds are encouraged to bring your projects, supplies, and ideas.

    From sewing to electronics to art projects, this will be an incubator for interesting collaborations. For example, if someone comes in to work on an embroidery project, another could show them how to incorporate conductive thread and LEDs to make that project light up. Tips and tricks that can be shared varied depending on who comes to the event. Things shared at previous events include working with Arduino, programming, sculpting, knitting, hand sewing, misc hobbyist electronics tips from component suppliers to soldering tricks.

    Please note that while this is a free event, CymaSpace is a non-profit that relies on donations to cover their expenses.

    Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

    COST: $8 online advance tickets, $10* suggested cover at the door

    DESCRIPTION:

    Caring for animals in captivity is a complicated task and many factors are involved in providing the best quality of life possible. Are the animals healthy? Are they housed in an appropriate environment? Do they experience positive emotions? We often assume we know the answers to these questions, but the needs of animals vary from species to species and can often be met through unusual and innovative means.

    At this Science on Tap, Dr. Daniel Gottlieb, Animal Behaviorist and Manager of Non-Human Primate Resources at OHSU’s Oregon National Primate Research Center, will explain how to take a scientific approach to evaluating and improving the welfare of captive animals in a laboratory, zoo, or production setting. Learn about how research is used to improve animal management through specific cases of animal welfare research and enrichment and management strategies for captive primates.


    *A note on the suggested cover at the door: Science on Tap is mostly supported by money collected at the door. It is committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.

    AgilePDX Dntn Pub Lunch: How to be an Outstanding Servant Leader

    Is being an "outstanding Servant Leader" a contradiction in terms? How does someone who facilitates the success of others see progress along a desirable career trajectory? How do you know whether you're being the best Servant Leader you can be? Where can you learn more?

    The Pub Lunchers chose this topic as an evolution of the discussion on managers and power.

    The Scrum Guide identifies Servant Leadership as the model that Scrum Masters should use, and this approach to leadership is considered desirable among Agilists whether or not they are Scrum Masters. But, what is servant leadership?

    Come on down to Ringlers on Burnside on 7/10 (NOTE CHANGE TO ADJUST FOR JULY 4th) and talk it through with people who have been there, done the homework, have the stripes to prove it or want to be there do that and get the stripes.

    We'll be in the back starting promptly at noon to wrestle with this perennially attractive topic.

    IndieWebCamp 2015
    through
    Esri Portland R&D Center

    Join us at Esri's R&D Center office in downtown Portland for two days of a BarCamp-style gathering of web creators building and sharing open web technologies to empower users to own their own identities & content, and advance the state of the indie web!

    You’ll learn about ways to empower yourself to own your data, create and publish content on your own site, and only optionally syndicate to third-party silos. Along the way you’ll get a solid grounding in the history and future of Microformats, domain ownership, IndieAuth, WebMention and more.

    The IndieWeb movement is a global community that is building an open set of principles and methods that empower people to take back ownership of identity and data instead of sharecropping on 3rd party websites. Homestead, don’t sharecrop! You’ll learn about ways to empower yourself to own your data, create and publish content on your own site, and only optionally syndicate to third-party silos. Along the way you’ll get a solid grounding in the history and future of Microformats, domain ownership, IndieAuth, WebMention and more!
