    Join us for the Feb meeting of PdxDevOps.

    Agenda:

    Speakers:

    Name: Emily Dunham (https://twitter.com/QEDunham) Topic: Automating all the things

    Jesse Dearing (https://twitter.com/JesseDearing)

    Topic: Failure and RCAs: A Love Story
    I love failure! I don't love to bathe in the tears of engineers but I love understanding how the systems that run our world fail. Everything from a failed hardware component to a human mistake. I love reading RCAs like murder mysteries. I will cover failure, how to learn from it, and preventing it. I will cover tools, processes, and techniques for reviewing and learning from failure without making people cry.

    Jesse Dearing is a Lead Site Reliability Engineer at InVisionApp where he wrangles databases and builds tools to manage them. Jesse likes to learn how languages connect to other systems. Jesse likes making everything a Bash one-liner and is his own chaos monkey as a result. When he's not picking apart systems and automating them, he enjoys riding bikes, reading, and spending time with family.

    pdxdevops is a Portland, Oregon user group that explores the glorious intersection of software development and systems operations, and shares practical advice on working effectively in an era of agile infrastructure, server automation and cloud computing. The group welcomes participants interested in any related products, technologies and methodologies. The group has been meeting regularly since August 2010 for presentations, demos and discussions applicable to all skill levels, from newbies and experts. Every month 15-35 people come together to share their knowledge, projects and enthusiasm for devops – join us!

    PDXWIT #Action Reproductive Rights Rally in Salem

    Portland, Oregon

    RSVP HERE - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdxwit-action-reproductive-rights-rally-in-salem-tickets-32019749934

    Join PDXWIT #Action to go to a Reproductive Health Rally in Salem on Tuesday, February 28th. In alignment with our recent PDXWIT #Action survey, women’s health is a top issue for our members. PDXWIT knows that affordable family planning is critical for women, especially those that choose to pursue tech careers.

    We will be organizing a carpool down to Salem. If you can drive or need a ride please fill in this Google doc and self-organize with your driver to schedule rides. We will be departing Portland at 10:30 a.m.

    We will meet on the corner of NE Court St and E Summer Street NE at 11:30, look for the bright green PDXWIT T-shirts. The rally is from 12 PM - 1 PM on the steps of the capitol in Salem. After the rally we will get an informal lunch in the area. Please fill in the Google doc if you would like to join so that we can find a restaurant that accommodates all of us. Feel free to bring protest and rally signs.

    This rally is to support The Reproductive Health Equity Act, an Oregon State Legislature bill. The Reproductive Health Equity Act (HB 2232) is an important leap toward ensuring that all Oregonians have meaningful access to the care they need. Thousands of Oregonians still lack coverage for the full range of reproductive health services. You can learn more about the bill here.

    The rally is produced by Pro-Choice Coalition of Oregon,a diverse, statewide coalition.They are working to create a world where access to reproductive health care doesn’t depend on who you are, where you live or how much you earn; where every Oregonian who can become pregnant has the opportunity to choose their own path to a healthy and meaningful life.

    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.

    Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.

  • PDXedTech Meetup: Future of AR/VR/MR in Education

    DotDotDash

    Recent advancements in mixed, augmented, and virtual reality ("MR", "AR", and "VR" respectively) have led to increased interest in re-examining their merit in K-12 and higher education.

    What might the role of VR/AR/MR be in the classroom of tomorrow? How could these technologies be used for teaching and learning? Are they just a different way to do the same thing? Or, do they re-define and enable new forms of instruction and pedagogy that were never before possible?

    These are just some of the questions we will explore, discuss, and practice with at the next PDXedTech meetup, an event of the NW Education Cluster. Whether as a tool for classroom management, data analysis, collaboration, or instruction, these technologies have a promising—though uncharted—future in education.

    This is your chance for hands-on practice and experimentation with a variety of devices and contribute your ideas to the discussion.

  • CHIFOO Event: Inclusion Before Diversity: Creating a Culture of Learning and Encouraging Getting it Wrong

    New Relic

    CHIFOO presents "Inclusion Before Diversity: Creating a Culture of Learning and Encouraging Getting it Wrong" with Ivana McConnell, Senior UI/UX Designer at Customer.io!

    Why tech companies should focus on achieving inclusion first, attending to employees’ specific self-care needs in order to create a platform for diversity to flourish, and better software made. People are chaotic, and product design has to account for them— this is challenging, and often solved by doing research and testing.

    About the Speaker Ivana (@IvanaMcConnell) was born in Sarajevo to a civil engineer-turned-translator and a UN Logistics Officer-turned-software engineer. She arrived in Vancouver via Croatia, Scotland, and Toronto, and has previously made a living as a rock climbing instructor and video game tester. These days she’s a senior UX designer at Customer.io, and is most interested in the intersections of technology, identity, and data.

    Come join CHIFOO for our third speaker event for 2017's theme "Thriving in Chaos: Strategies for Good Design".

  • Clojure Collection Processing in Context w/ Bill Burcham

    Puppet

    Part I: Eager to Process

    A key innovation in Clojure (versus earlier Lisps) is the abstraction of sequence processing functions away from the list type, to the more general sequence interface. This polymorphic abstraction lets what would otherwise be a large library of functions operating on a single collection type (list), grow in power to operate over more collection types, including maps, sets, vectors, and many others.

    The clojure.core sequence processing facilities borrow great ideas from earlier Lisps and Haskell too. Conversely, ClojureScript’s collections library can be viewed as a successor to Clojure’s own. By exploring a little bit of this surrounding terrain, we gain a much clearer understanding of Clojure’s elegant and powerful collection processing.

    In this first 45-minute presentation, we’ll introduce a toy problem and we’ll solve it a few different ways at the REPL. From very basic beginnings, we’ll introduce sequence processing and collection-sequence duality. We’ll progress smoothly to higher-order functions and beyond (I don’t want to ruin the surprise mkay?) Along the way we’ll meet a number of foundational Clojure functions and forms.

    If you’ve read a Clojure book (mainly the first few chapters) and you’ve written some code, you have everything you need to understand this talk. Intermediate Clojurists, may also come away with some new insights.

    Bio:

    Bill Burcham has earned his living for almost three decades now, making software. He’s liked Lisp best for even longer than that. As many have pointed out: Lisp feels like something discovered—not something invented. There is something essential in Lisp.

    AgilePDX Pub Lunch: How Do We Measure Value?

    There’s a lot of talk about throughput and just “getting stuff done” in Agile and Lean environments. We relative size things with story points. We wrapped around the axle about velocity. But, isn’t the point to deliver value for the best quality and price while fostering humane workplaces?

    If Agile is about delivering value, then why do we spend the greatest amount of our time on metrics for the delivery side of the house? How can we measure value? How would this help inform prioritization?

    Last month’s pub lunchers started digging into this from several perspectives, and they want to dig more. Grab a shovel and come along. Better, yet, grab your PO or PM and come along. We’ll get this figured out over lunch. You'll find us in the back. RSVP's welcome, but not required, at [email protected].

    Beer of Trust Key-Signing
    Beer c37730a61e5136f3294d36828ea8a295e624fc652c114cf191d008ee44f97f2a

    "Beer of Trust" is a key signing party with beer, and a chance to hang out and talk about PGP, encryption, and other related things!

    What's a key-signing party?

    A key-signing party is a get-together with PGP users for the purpose of meeting other PGP users and signing each other's keys. This helps to extend the "web of trust" to a great degree. Also, it sometimes serves as a forum to discuss strong cryptography and related issues.

    What if I don't have a key yet?

    If you don't have a PGP key yet, this is a good chance to get your feet wet. If you bring a computer, you can generate a test key at the event and experiment with sending messages to others there. It can be helpful to have someone present to walk you through the process the first time. It is recommended that you only generate a test key at the event, and later generate your real key in private. See below for links to some helpful resources for securely generating a key.

    What do I need for this party?

    If you are bringing a key to sign, then make sure you bring:

    • A picture ID or some other way for people to match you to your identity
    • Your key ID, key type, hex fingerprint, and key size. You can print out slips of paper to hand out your key info if you'd like.
    • A pen/pencil or whatever you'd like to write with
    • A computer is not required, and it is not recommended to use your computer to sign keys at the event

    At the event, you'll meet others, confirm their key ID in person, and swap key IDs with them. Later when you get home, you can download the full keys and sign them, then upload the signature to the keyserver or email it to them directly.

    RSVP here.

    Certified Scrum Master (CSM) Training
    through
    McMenamins Kennedy School

    A Certified ScrumMaster® helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. CSMs understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. CSMs act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. CSMs also protect the team from both internal and external distractions. To earn your CSM certificate, you must take a CSM course from a Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) or Endorsed Scrum Trainer (EST) and demonstrate your progress through our online CSM test. The first step toward your CSM is familiarizing yourself with Scrum. Then attend an in-person, two-day (16 hour) CSM course taught by a Scrum Alliance Authorized Trainer. After successfully completing the course, you will need to pass the CSM exam. To get a passing score, you must correctly answer 24 of the 35 questions. You will be eligible for 16 Scrum Education Units (SEUs) upon completion of this course. After you pass the CSM exam, you will be asked to accept the License Agreement and complete your Scrum Alliance membership profile. This 2 day (16 hours) course fulfills the classroom requirement to become a CSM.

    10% of PROCEEDS WILL GO TO CHICK TECH PORTLAND https://portland.chicktech.org/

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.
