    "DevOps is dead, long live DevOps!"

    The term DevOps did not use to be widely known, now it has become a fairly common term. With that wide adoption also comes misuse and misunderstanding. Join Tom as he talks about his journey through modern software development and his quest for the adoption of the culture and mindset of DevOps rather than making it a a title that causes recruiters emails to flood his inbox. This will be an interactive session where Tom shares stories and examples from the last several years of building teams and changing cultures within organizations in Portland.

  • Portland Ruby Brigade monthly meeting

    New Relic

    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!

    Galois tech talk: Interrupts in OS code: let’s reason about them. Yes, this means concurrency.

    Galois Inc

    abstract:

    Existing modeled and verified operating systems (OS’s) typically run on uniprocessor platforms and run with interrupts mostly disabled. This makes formal reasoning more tractable: execution is mostly sequential. The eChronos OS is a real-time OS used in tightly constrained devices, running on (uniprocessor) embedded micro-controllers. It is used in the DARPA-funded HACMS program, where it runs the flight control software of a high-assurance quadcopter. To provide low latency, the eChronos OS runs with interrupts enabled and provides a preemptive scheduler. In terms of verification, this means that concurrency reasoning is required, which significantly increases the complexity: application and OS instructions may be interleaved with interrupt handler instructions.

    In our work we explicitly model the effect of interrupts and their handling by the hardware and OS. We provide a general formal model of the interleaving between OS code, application code and interrupt handlers. We then instantiate this model to formalise the scheduling behavior of the eChronos OS, and prove the main scheduler property: the running task is always the highest-priority runnable task.

    bio:

    June Andronick is a Senior Researcher at Data61|CSIRO (formerly NICTA). Her research focuses on increasing the reliability of critical software systems, by mathematically proving that the code behaves as expected and satisfies security and safety requirements. She contributed to the seL4 correctness proof and now focuses on concurrency reasoning for OS code. She leads the concurrency software verification research in Data61, and is deputy leader of the Trustworthy Systems group. She was recognised in 2011 by MIT’s Technology Review as one of the world’s top young innovators (TR35). She holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Paris-Sud, France.

  • CHIFOO Event: Be Here When

    CHIFOO presents "Be Here When: Faith Based Communities Contemplate Technologies for Themselves" with John D. Smith, Co-Author of Digital Habitats!

    Churches and faith-based communities live with many contradictions that are completely irrational depending on where you stand or what hat you wear. Their irrationality challenges our normal thinking about design, technology, and human interaction. To understand what’s going on as a community’s technology steward you need to stand inside and outside, be local and nonlocal, be in the organization and outside, be a newbie and an old-timer, have a short-timer’s view and play the long game, be both geek and technophobe, and observe it all as an actor and as a barefoot ethnographer. Every day.

    About the Speaker

    John co-authored “Digital Habitats: stewarding technology for communities” with Etienne Wenger and Nancy White. He is a buddhist meditation teacher with a master’s degree in planning and architecture from the University of New Mexico.

    Come join CHIFOO for our fifth speaker event of 2016's theme "Bounded Irrationality: Supporting Users and Building Communities."

  • AgilePDX Pub Lunch: Minimum Loveable Product

    The idea of "Minimal Viable Product" (MVP) is well known in Agile and Lean Startup circles. Where does an MVP reach its limit? What's another set of tools to use in minimal/startup mode but gain further understanding of customer needs?

    "Minimal Loveable Product" is another arrow in the quiver for startups and startup-like organizations. By extending and expanding the ideas MVP uses, it concentrates on making users happy and excited to use the product.

    What experiences do you have with Minimal Loveable Products? Is it good? Less than stellar? Does MVP actually fall short in the real world?

    We'll be in the back. RSVP's to the Meet Up Group not required but very much appreciated or email jean@azuregate.net. It helps us determine whether to move the furniture.

  • Stories from the Hardware Startup World w/ Joe Grand (aka Kingpin)

    Join us for our first Hardware Massive Portland event with guest speaker Joe Grand, a legendary hacker, product designer, and the founder of Grand Idea Studio, Inc.

    Formerly known as Kingpin, Joe was a member of the influential hacker group L0pht Heavy Industries. He co-founded @stake, an information security firm later acquired by Symantec, and Chumby Industries, which produced one of the first intentionally open and hackable consumer devices. He was a co-host of Discovery Channel's Prototype This, an engineering entertainment program that followed the real-life build process of a unique prototype each episode, and has been a technical advisor to many hardware startups, including MakerBot and Crowd Supply.

    Never one to follow the status quo, Joe has successfully forged his own path doing what he loves to do - hacking, engineering, and teaching. In this session, Joe will share uncensored stories of his experiences being part of, working for, and advising startups. He'll talk about the importance of finding the right people, focusing on a market, choosing funding, and building a business based on passion, not fueled by a quest for fame or riches.

    SPONSORS:

    • Food & Drink are sponsored by Crowd Supply, the crowdfunding platform for hardware startups.

    • Venue is sponsored by JLR Tech Incubator. Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) operates the Open Software Technology Center (OSTC), a unique state-of-the-art facility in Portland that focuses on In-Vehicle Infotainment.

    PLUG Linux Clinic

    Free Geek

    The Linux Clinic meets once a month on the third Sunday from 1 - 5 pm at Free Geek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue, Portland, 97214.

    Bring your Linux computer that is being a brat and we'll teach it some manners. Or bring your computer that has some evil operating system on it and we'll send it home with a shiny, clean Linux distro. Or just come and look over shoulders to see what Linux is all about.

    If you already know Linux well, the Clinic is also a good place to learn how to help users troubleshoot problems. It's excellent training for tech support work in Linux.

    We have monitors, mice, keyboards, and miscellanous other perifpherals, so generally all you need to bring is the box.

    There will also be coffee and people usually bring munchies as well. After all, you can't do computers on an empty tummy.
