    Free Cloud Computing Educational/ Job Program
    through

    In cooperation with Business Oregon, the Oregon Bioscience Association has created a unique, highly targeted program to help develop the next generation of high-skilled technical and managerial talent for the state's bioscience industry. Designed in cooperation with some of the largest bioscience and Healthcare employers in Oregon, this tuition-free program is currently recruiting the first cohort of students to receive its Cloud Computing in Biomedicine professional development certificates.

    The next certificate cohort is scheduled to begin June 1st, 2015.

    Cloud Computing in Biomedicine topics will include: +Use, benefit and challenges of big data and the cloud +Cloud services, providers and security +Cloud monitoring and alert management +Cloud implementation strategies +Security and compliance for healthcare data in the cloud +The transformation of healthcare by big data

    Ideal candidates should have IT, advanced engineering, scientific or professional skills, and be looking to work in the Oregon biotech or healthcare industry. You must be unemployed or underemployed, and be available from June 1st to June 26th for full-time immersion training (Exact dates for this program will be finalized by May 10th).

    There are only 15 openings per cohort, so the program is very selective.

    Applicants with the following skills are highly desired: Basic knowledge of information technology that includes an understanding of virtualization concepts, networking concepts, Linux command line, and programming logic.

    The program consists of 70-80 hours of intensive high-end classroom training during the day, modeled on Oregon Bio's highly successful BioPro training program. As part of the program, participants will meet Oregon employers seeking new talent, and receive job skills training from cloud-computing, big data and healthcare data experts.

    The program will conclude with an opportunity for company hiring personnel to get to know the successful participants. Alumni will remain connected through regular networking events.

    If you are interested, please visit http://www.biocatalyst.org for more details and to apply. Inquires can also be made at biocatalyst@oregonbio.org. Spaces will fill fast, so apply soon.

    Drop in hour for prospective students
    Ruby Php Javascript

    Epicodus

    Epicodus is a 20 week, full time, in-person class on programming. You'll learn everything you need to know to get a job as a web developer or build your startup's app.

    At Epicodus, you'll learn how to build web applications from top to bottom with modern technologies and practices. More importantly than any particular skill, though, you'll learn how to think like a programmer, write good code, and pick up new languages and technologies in this fast-changing industry.

    We currently offer three courses: one covering PHP, JavaScript, and Drupal, one covering Ruby, JavaScript, and Rails, and a new class covering Java, JavaScript, and Android. Currently, the Java class is women-only.

    Stop in to meet our staff, see the classroom and ask lots of questions. And if you're working on the pre-class homework from learnhowtoprogram.com we can help with that!

  • Portland Ruby Brigade monthly meeting
    Ruby Rails

    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.

    Open Source Bridge Raffle

    https://tinyurl.com/osb15-raffle-pdxruby

    PRESENTATIONS at 7pm

    Chase Douglas: Metasecurity - Beyond Patching Vulnerabilities

    Rails comes with many powerful security protections out of the box, but no code is perfect. This talk will highlight a new approach to web app security, one focusing on a higher level of abstraction than current techniques. We will take a look at current security processes and tools and some common vulnerabilities still found in many Rails apps. Then we will investigate novel ways to protect against these vulnerabilities.

    Evan Carmi: Reverse Engineering - Finding the hidden API

    A survey of techniques to debug and reverse engineer services that you may be trying to connect with but don't have an API (like iCloud) or don't have a well documented API (like the rest of the internet).

    Lightning Talks

    Jonan will host a lightning talk session. There will be a whiteboard to sign up on arrival (first come first serve).

    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!

  • June PADNUG - Let's Talk About the Internet of Things

    In this course Microsoft's Jeremy Foster gives an introduction to the world of IoT - the Internet of Things. We’ll get definitions for various IoT terms and some bold predictions of the future where the internet is not so much a collection of devices as it is a collection of sensors and gadgets attached to people, vehicles, houses, and a lot more. And we’ll also get the basics of how to write software for these devices using the familiar and rather high level JavaScript language on Node.js. This means that instead of writing difficult code in languages such as C or Wiring, modern IoT hackers can write easy code and have access to the vast number of node modules that already exist. As an example project, you’ll meet Tweet Monkey and see what little it takes to put together your own maker project.

  • 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.

  • Ruby Book Club
    Ruby

    Reading through technical books in a group is a great way to learn. You can stay motivated by reading together; better apply what you are reading by actively communicating it, as well as hearing others perspectives that will help you better understand the book. Even if you're a more experienced developer it's a great way to keep your skill sharp and share your wisdom and experience. If none of that is convincing just come and have fun with fellow ruby developers!

    We are starting a new book Confident Ruby by Avdi Grimm. This week we will discuss up to page 181 ( including 4.19 Substitute a benign value for nil). Please come having read the chapters and ready to discuss it.

    Make sure to grab food before.

We'll have plenty of tech to play with, including several smart watches, smart glasses, fitness trackers, next generation location trackers, and even a baby monitor. We'll talk about what's new in consumer and commercial/healthcare wearables, and even a bit about security. I hope to see you there!

    AgilePDX Westside (morning) - How Agile is Agile Enough?

    How Agile is Agile Enough?

    Join us for a format introduced at the Intel Agile & Lean Conference: Lean Coffee++

    Participants will actively brainstorm and prioritize the agenda and become part of the conversation. Up-votes will continue the discussion, while down-votes mean move on to the next sub-topic.

    To guide the conversation we'll seed the topic, and also seed the audience with expert contributors. This is the ++ portion of our take on the LeanCoffee(tm) format.

    Seed Topic: How Agile is Agile Enough?

    Seed questions: Do large organizations need to accept the same definition of agility as small ones? Is it possible to accept some known impediments and still be considered 'agile'? How do we measure when we have become 'agile enough'?

  • Counterpoint: Don't Write The Docs

    New Relic

    The WTD NA conference is coming in May, so it's a good time to start planning for post-conference Meetups. We'll meet again on Tuesday June 9, when Diana Potter, the Senior Director of Customer Success at Customer.io tells us when to say: "Don't Write The Docs".

    When I started working as a Technical Writer, our local VP told me that to do my job well, I'd spend significant time testing and pushing for changes to our software. To me, that sounds like the essence of Diana's talk.

    Diana manages Customer.io's support/docs team. As such, I expect that her talk will interest Documentarians, Support Engineers, and Knowledge Base Creators. Here is the abstract of her talk:


    Writing user facing documentation gives you a unique perspective on software. How does something work? Will the software explode when I push this button? Okay, now how do you explain that explosion to a user, in a way that makes sense and captures their attention?

    What do you do, though, when that unique perspective illustrates areas of confusion? Why document something that's confusing? Fix the confusion!

    Write the docs that make sense for the user and advocate for product changes on behalf of the "user" too.

    How do you decide when it makes sense to document, and when it makes sense to dig in your heels and push for an internal change to the product? How can you use documentation to push for change? Come learn what I've learned, the processes I've put in place, and learn the following chant: "does this doc make sense?"

Come by and play some Ping-Pong! Or, just come by for some good conversation and a beer. Headbands, wristbands, and other such attire are encouraged.

    You want to play, bring $5 for the Tournament. There will be two brackets 1) The Best of the Best and 2) The Best of the Worst (for people who suck at pong...). Fun for all. Winner takes all in each bracket.

  • Science on Tap - Hanford and Our Nuclear Legacy
    Beer

    Kiggins Theatre

    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!

    Event Description:

    Hanford Nuclear Reservation, located on the Columbia River in eastern Washington, is the largest contaminated site in the western hemisphere. Used to make plutonium for nuclear bombs during WWII and the Cold War, the Hanford site generated vast quantities of chemical and radioactive pollution. Cleanup at Hanford began in 1989 and we know it will now continue for generations to come.

    At this Science on Tap, Abigail Cermak, Hanford Coordinator with Columbia Riverkeeper, Dirk Dunning, Chemical Engineer & Nuclear Specialist from the Oregon Department of Energy, and Tom Carpenter, the Executive Director of Hanford Challenge will talk about the history of Hanford, how we built the atomic bomb, and what the government is doing to clean up the nuclear waste.


    Science on Tap at the Kiggins is produced in partnership with Washington State University Vancouver.


    *A note on the suggested cover at the door: Science on Tap is largely supported by money collected at the door. We are 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.

    Introduction to the TypeScript Toolchain

    You've learned the basics of the typescript language itself. Now learn about the tools that constitute a complete TypeScript development environment. In this session, we will answer all those ancillary questions about developing in TypeScript that tend to get lost when focusing language features.

    How do I compile TypeScript?
    How do I error check and lint?
    How do I generate TypeScript documentation?
    How do I connect TypeScript to 3rd party libraries?
    How do I automate the process?

    Topics include:

    • Grunt and TypeScript extensions
    • Type Definition Files
    • Bower
    • TSLinting
    • TypeDoc
