  • OSGeo-PDX OpenStreetMap Mapathon to locate and tag Public Art in Downtown Portland

    An OpenStreetMap- outdoor mapathon.

    Mapping 500 outdoor artworks in the Portland-Vancouver Metro Area during the summer of 2015

    On May 14 there were fewer than 50 OpenStreetMap mapped artworks in Portland. And none had photos.

    This summer pdxosgeo (Portland's Opensource Geo group ) and friends will map at least 500 artworks in Portland, Vancouver, Gresham, Hillsboro. Along the way benches, eateries, pubs, drinking fountains, historical sites and key tourism attractions will get tagged.

    We'll use atlas pages from fieldpapers.org, pre-printed.

    Create an account on openstreetmap before hand if you want. And, if you have a smartphone, install an OSM POI (point of interest) editor app. PushPin and Go Map! are great.

    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!

    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!

  • 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.

  • July PADNUG: Hacking Sonos with .Net

    Presenter: Paul Fryer, Software Architect at Fiserv

    Paul started buying Sonos speakers for his home a couple months ago to get around the need to run wires for his home stereo. He was fascinated by the music streaming system, mainly the software used to synchronize the playing of music across multiple devices. So he started peeking under the hood to see how it all worked and if he could possibly learn to control it with custom code.

    Paul ended up reverse engineering Sonos and in the process learned about the Upnp protocol. He eventually created a C# library that can be used to turn any device into a node on the Sonos network.

    But Paul didn't stop there. He also added Azure Event Hub for cloud processing and Akka.Net to allow for high speed parallel event processing. And all this deployed on a raspberry pi!

    Paul will have a live demos and plenty of code. This will be the perfect follow on presentation to Jeremy Fosters talk on the "Internet of Things".

  • Science on Tap - Monkey Business
    Beer c37730a61e5136f3294d36828ea8a295e624fc652c114cf191d008ee44f97f2a

    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.

  • Portland Startup Summit

    Holocene

    Portland is the next big thing.

    You're invited to Portland Startup Summit 2.0.1, taking place at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison St.) from 11 AM to 7 PM on Monday, July 13.

    Half-day tickets are FREE while supplies last. Get them here.

    Brought to you by the team behind SF Beta, Startup Happy Hour, and Dev-to-Dev Summit, we've put together an all-star lineup of speakers from the Portland startup scene, with some very special guests from Silicon Valley.

    Register now and join our online community: http://www.portlandstartupsummit.com

    And now, the agenda:

    THE POWER OF THE PORTLAND BRAND Portland is more than just a city – it's a global brand. Nobody understands this better than Marcus Harvey, Founder of Portland Gear and the ever-popular @Portland instagram account. Rather than building a novel identity from scratch, this talk encourages founders to co-brand with Portland from day one – a tactic embraced not only by Marcus, but by this very summit. • Marcus Harvey, Founder, Portland Gear

    THE FUTURE OF FOOD This feature session reflects upon the rapidly evolving Portland food scene, sharing the stories and viewpoints from three local leaders in the booming industry. This panel will share the personal stories from the visionaries behind companies and brands that people know; explore different food startup business models (eg. What kind of food startup is fundable, and by whom?); discuss case studies and examples of successful food startups; and speculate openly and with sweeping hand gestures on the future of food in Portland. • Erik Wolf, Founder, SavorSearch • Tom Gillpatrick, Juan Young Professor of Marketing and Food Management, Portland State University • Sarah Masoni, Product & Process Development Manager, OSU Food Innovation Center • Matt Milletto, Owner/Partner, Water Avenue Coffee

    KEYNOTE: RISE OF THE SILICON VALLEY AMBASSADOR As Portland and the Bay Area grow ever more interconnected, startups need to be active on both sides of the #SiliconBridge. Portland startups can do this by working with a Silicon Valley Ambassador, a role being pioneered by Bay Area technology veteran Mary Hodder, who works alongside the Portland-based team at Village. This talk will explore the dynamics of a multi-city team and present a vision of the Silicon Valley Ambassador as a new, yet vital, position for Portland startups to consider. • Mary Hodder, Co-Founder & CPO, Village

    THE PERSONAL IS THE PROFESSIONAL This talk explores the evolving nature of professionalism in the era of cultural diversity, decentralized media, and personal branding. It's time to rethink assumptions about professional identity, moving towards a framework of empowerment, individuality, and interconnection. • Dave Barcos, Founder, Bridge Incubator

    AN INSIDE LOOK AT INTRAPRENEURSHIP Innovation matters to big companies as much as small ones. In a process called "intrapreneurship," large organizations empower champions to create and scale new opportunities. In many ways the best of both worlds – and in many ways more challenging – this talk explores intrapreneurship from the perspective of one its most experienced practitioners. • Jay Fayloga, Intrapreneur & Advisor

    STARTING UP WITHOUT INVESTORS Drawing on the success stories of local crowdfunded startups, this panel examines non-traditional sources of capital in an increasingly diverse funding landscape. Panelists will discuss both the advantages and drawbacks to non-traditional fundraising, sharing success stories and lessons learned in the process. • Thubten Comerford, Founder, WePost Media • Kristen Gallagher, Founder, Edify Education Design • Helga Waage, Co-Founder & CTO, Mobilitus • Tekin Tatar, CEO & Co-Founder, BeFunky

  • Study Group: Coursera/Stanford Algorithms: Design and Analysis

    I'd like to start a study-group for the new session on Coursera of Stanford professor Tim Roughgarden's "Algorithms: Design and Analysis, Part 1" course:

    https://www.coursera.org/course/algo

    The first week started on June 29th going to July 5th but is a "soft opening" week to allow latecomers to start gracefully - there are some lectures to watch but no real work. The first "real week" with homework is July 6-11th. Lectures generally come out Fridays and new assignments released / old assignments due on Sunday nights.

    The course runs from June 29 through August 29. There is a Part 2 of the course that will start several weeks after this one finishes, if there are enough people interested I'm happy to try this again for Part 2.

    This course gets some crazy-good reviews from people, here are some from one review site:

    https://www.coursetalk.com/providers/coursera/courses/algorithms-design-and-analysis-part-1

    I've taken the first half of part I awhile back, enjoyed it but got busy and didn't complete it, and I want to re-do it this term. Due to the date, I thought trying Mondays (7/13 for starters) after work would be a good option, though I'm open to ideas.

    Please RSVP if you're interested! I'll update the event when I confirm a venue.

    Oh - the course is intentionally language-agnostic. The up-side to this is BYOL, the downside is no "answer sheet" from the teacher. I'm happy to work in ruby, python, or javascript (the languages I work in), or - we can just as well bring our homework in whatever language we want and discuss them however. Also, there are oen or two - completely optional - texts that he suggests can supplement the on-line class. If that interests you, they're mentioned in one of the first few lectures. I like the Kleinberg/Tardos one.

  • Talk about "Better Stories, Better Technologies"

    New Relic

    Note: We'll give away one free 3-day pass to OSCON 2015, good July 22-24. Sign up when you arrive, and we'll raffle off the pass after the talk is complete!


    If you attended the Write The Docs 2015 Conference, you know the importance of User Stories, and how they lead to more readable documentation.

    On July 14 (Bastille Day!), Amelia Abreu will give us her take on the User Story, when she talks about:

    • Better Stories, Better Technologies:

    Technologies all have stories behind them, some we hear, some we don’t. From the genesis of a product idea, to the way that technologists characterize their work, to documentation, to startup origin stories. Development frameworks operationalize stories as a way to build features. Documentation tells a story, and speaks to certain stories about our users.

    How can documentarians think critically about the way that we tell stories? How do we confront times when some stories get told over others? How do we talk about our successes, and how do we not talk about our failures? Whose stories get heard: how do women, people of color, disabled people, and “non-technical” workers get left out of the stories we hear?

    In this talk, I’ll explore some of the ways that stories and storytelling are used in building technologies. I’ll share what I’ve found in looking at stories in technology, and propose some practical solutions for telling better stories and using them in building products.

  • Ruby Book Club

    Renewable Funding

    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 Metaprogramming Ruby 2: Program Like the Ruby Pros by Paolo Perrotta. This week we will discuss Chapter 1-2. Please come having read the chapters and ready to discuss it.

    Make sure to grab food before. Looking for a sponsor, contact me if you are interested.

    PDX Big Data Discussion Group

    Yieldbot

    "No talks. You may opt to take up to 60 seconds to complain about Big Data. One paper per month, no obligation to read it."

    We'll start by letting anyone who wants to take up to a minute to tell us what they've been doing with data lately.

    This month's paper is Gaussian Process Latent Variable Models for Visualisation of High Dimensional Data by Lawrence. Read it or don't - the goal is just to have something to start conversations. "Did you read the paper?" will do nicely.

    Mention @PDXBigData on Twitter with the link to the full paper to suggest papers for future sessions.

    There will be food.
