    Puppet

    This event is listed on Meetup, please RSVP there if you can: https://www.meetup.com/Cloud-Native-PDX/events/249368520/

    First, Chris Foster will share his tips for Security Docker on the Cheap. Better Docker security doesn't have to use expensive tools to achieve. Following a few security practices and using DE built-in features, along with some free, open source tools, can significantly raise the standard. We'll take a look at some things that can bring higher security without breaking the budget.

    Next, Eric Ernst will demo KataContainers, a way to combine hardware virtualization with Kubernetes containers for more isolated, secure services without sacrificing startup times. In this talk he'll provide some background on the Kata Containers project and describe how Kata Containers works with CRI-O and Kubernetes. Then, he'll walk you through creating a K8S configuration which uses a mix of runc and Kata containers to secure workloads with varying levels of trust.

  • PDX Python and Pyladies PDX Present Monthly Presentation Night

    New Relic

    Come join us for Pythonic talks!

    This month:

    JR Heard presents: How To Find All Your Bugs Using Generative Testing

    Testing your code is important, but writing example-based unit tests by hand is time-consuming and often ineffective. There's a better way! In this talk, JR (formerly @yelp, currently @ewindsolutions) will show you how to use the Hypothesis library in order to create property-based tests. Hypothesis is easy to use, it's fun, and it'll find tons of bugs in your code so you can sleep better at night! All skill levels are welcome; this talk will be great for beginners and advanced programmers alike.

    Join us after the meetup at Bailey's taproom at 213 SW Broadway to continue the discussion over a beverage.

    Do you have something you'd like to share? Submit talk proposals here: http://bit.ly/portland-python-proposals

  • AgilePDX Westside Cafe: Dealing Successfully with Conflict

    Many of our agile methods can increase conflict. Collaboration means conflict. Any time we try to solve problems different opinions emerge on what to do. Transparency can trigger insecurities and conflict. Experimenting and failing/learning rapidly is not intuitive to our society and is bound to generate some friction.

    The stance we take when faced with conflict can help the team create something new, or it can add to the tangle. What do you do to help yourself stay present in the midst of conflict? What in-the-moment facilitation or coaching tools do you use when conflict is bubbling?

    Join us and share your stories about conflict, what you have tried and what you have learned. Hope to see you Friday April 27th for a lively discussion on conflict management within agile teams.

    AgilePDX Dntn Pub Lunch: What Methods Best Support Learning New Skills?

    So Agile is all about learning, right? But how do people--particularly the kind of people who use Agile methods--learn?

    We pair, share accountability for code quality, do hackathons, dev days, and Coderetreats. We retrospect and introspect. We Spike. We Increment and Iterate. We experiment and evaluate. We dialogue and converse.

    But, isn't there some method, some theoretical underpinning? And have we learned anything new in the last twenty years about how people learn?

    Bring your friends, your teams, you unconvinced managers to Ringlers where we will do what we do: dialogue, converse, share, eat pub grub and drink beer. You know you want to be here!

  • Women Who Code Portland Software Engineering Interview Preparation Workshop

    Alchemy Code Lab

    Women Who Code Portland is hosting it's first ever Software Engineering Interview Preparation Workshop! This event is geared towards helping women prepare for technical interviews, but we welcome everyone who supports our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers and follows our code of conduct. The goal of the workshop is to provide people with the opportunity to gain experience with a technical interview format.

    This workshop is broken into two sections:

    • Algorithms Review
    • Mock Interviews & Whiteboarding

    In the morning, we'll cover an introduction to solving algorithms. Participants will have the chance to see common interview algorithms, and approach how to solve them under pressure.

    In the afternoon, we will break into groups for mock interviews. This will help participants get a feel for what a technical interview might be like. Whiteboarding can be much different than writing on paper, especially in front of others. Participants will have the chance to practice answers to common questions, thinking out loud while solving a problem and practice techniques for how to move forward when stumped.

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/workshop-software-engineering-interview-preparation-tickets-45105030360

    Creating Digital Spaces Everyone Can Access (PUGS x UX Night School)

    SE Uplift

    This workshop provides an introduction to digital accessibility standards and practices and gives participants hands-on experience with assessing, testing, and implementing accessibility practices in the physical and digital realm.

    We’ll start this workshop by talking about what accessibility entails: why it matters, and who is excluded when we don't adapt our online and physical spaces to account for varying ability levels. Then, we'll explore the business case for developing accessible technology. Isn't your business (your art project, your retail store) going to be more successful if everyone, regardless of their ability, can access and enjoy it?

    Next, we’ll dive into the technical details with a straightforward overview of the latest accessibility standards (the new 2018 Revised 508 Standards, the first major update since 2001, and the W3 WCAG standards). Then, we’ll work in small groups to practice hands-on accessibility testing. Finally, we’ll reconvene, share our progress and findings, and develop plans for implementing accessible development in our day-to-day work.

    Instructor: Amelia Abreu is a design researcher and the founder of UX Night School. She's worked with clients like Nike, Mozilla, Microsoft, and Intel. Before entering the industry, she did graduate research in Human Computer Interaction at the University of Washington.

  • AgilePDX: Mob Programming

    Mob Programming is a software development practice with many benefits - it raises code quality, removes knowledge silos, minimizes mental fatigue, and more. In practice it feels more like a bulldozer than a racecar - unstoppable and thorough. The core of mob programming is pointing many pairs of eyes on a single problem, pushing all the code through a single keyboard. Each month we'll explore different methods for learning to mob well and reaping the rewards of this practice as soon as possible on your own team.

    We may choose to head over to McMennamin's Kennedy School for food, drink, and talk afterwards.

    Facilitator Bio:

    Willem Larsen is a senior software developer at Hunter Industries. He has been speaking at Agile conferences on improving collaboration since 2009. He is the creator of accelerated team learning tools such as the Mob Programming role-playing game and Code Cooking (with Emmanuel Gaillot), author of the Language Hunter's Kit, co-author of 5 Rules For Accelerated Learning, founder of Language Hunters (a non-profit organization dedicated to improving communities of learning in technology, language, science, and music), and both a wildlife tracker and Search and Rescue tracker.

  • CHIFOO Event: Breaking The Veil Of Research

    TBD

    CHIFOO presents "What Happens When You Break The Veil Of Research?" with Nancy Frishberg, Senior UX Researcher & Coach!

    In design education, there is no ethical code that all agree on. What about computer science or any of the other disciplines we may have been trained in? The discussions of ethics and the real-life experiences that followed have informed my understanding of universal access and ethical responsibilities of design. I'll challenge myself to make the connections between these two endeavors (interpreting and design research or human-computer interaction) clear for all.

    About the Speaker Nancy Frishberg (@nancyf) has had several careers. The one most familiar to CHIFOO audiences is her work in qualitative research with humans, usually about improving products and services that people use and pay for and the processes that get them to those interactions and purchases. She has worked in tech companies, financial services institutions, and as a consultant to both for-profit and non-profit organizations.

    CHIFOO is celebrating its 25th anniversary! Come join CHIFOO for our fifth speaker event for 2018's theme "Do the Right Thing- HCI Ethics: Where Do We Start?".
