  • SEPoCoNi (The West Side Strikes Back)

    Commodore Lounge

    Southeast Portland Coder's Night was a glorious gathering of folks. Many nachos were had while discussing various projects. This died out as Side Door stopped being open after 7pm.

    A few of us have tried various venues but haven't been happy with many of them. One venue a few of us would hang out at after user groups is the Commodore Lounge on SW 17th and Burnside. It has wifi, delicious food, and a wide range of drinks. The power situation could be better but we are sure we can improve this with time.

    So, come along, have a drink and some food with us as we embark on the next stage of Portland Coder Nights. The time is a guideline, show up when it makes sense to you and leave when you want or need to. These are just the hours we've seen work for a majority of folks in the past.

  • Women Who Code - Website Hack Night

    Starbucks

    I am working on details here: http://womenwhocodeportland.com/website-planning/, so please add comments about what you would like see even if you can't make our hack night.

  • Portland JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting

    The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

    This month Jesse Hallett will talk about React and the Virtual DOM. React is a library for building HTML views in a less stateful, more functional way than is done with many other frameworks. Under the hood it uses a virtual DOM representation, which makes page updates really fast.

    Thanks go to PubNub for sponsoring pizza, and to Janrain for providing meeting space.

    Feel free to join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/pdxjs if you too are a JavaScript admirer. Or visit our web site for more information at http://pdxjs.com/.

    If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please e-mail Jesse Hallett (jesse@sitr.us).

    Tech Talk: SmartCheck – Automatic and Efficient Counterexample Reduction and Generalization

    Galois is pleased to host the following tech talk. These talks are free and open to the interested public--please join us! (There is no need to pre-register for the talk.)

    Abstract

    QuickCheck is a powerful library for automatic test-case generation. Because QuickCheck performs random testing, some of the counterexamples discovered are very large. QuickCheck provides an interface for the user to write shrink functions to attempt to reduce the size of counterexamples. Hand-written implementations of shrink can be complex, inefficient, and consist of significant boilerplate code. Furthermore, shrinking is only one aspect in debugging: counterexample generalization is the process of extrapolating from individual counterexamples to a class of counterexamples, often requiring a flash of insight from the programmer. To improve counterexample reduction and generalization, we introduce SmartCheck. SmartCheck is a debugging tool that reduces algebraic data using generic search heuristics to efficiently find smaller counterexamples. In addition to shrinking, SmartCheck also automatically generalizes counterexamples to formulas representing classes of counterexamples. SmartCheck has been implemented for Haskell and is freely available.

    This is a meetup for community managers and leaders who are interested in discussions related to nurturing and running online communities. We will be meeting on the fourth Thursday of most months at Puppet Labs!

    How Bring a computer and anything else you’ll need for twelve hours of hacking. You’ll get $500 in credit for Google’s Cloud Platform, along with an index of APIs and other tools. Mentors from our sponsors will be on hand to provide advice and assistance.

  • 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!

  • Write The Docs PDX: Keeping trust: Testing documentation as part of a continuous integration process

    Puppet Labs

    (Please arrive before 6:00 pm. The building managers lock the doors at that time. Anyone who has to open the door for late arrivals will likely miss part of the presentation.)

    Kristof Van Tomme will reprise his talk to the European Write The Docs '14 conference back in April. Kristof is the CEO of Pronovix and the project lead of WalkHub, both focused on Drupal-based systems. He'll be joining us remotely from Belgium, from a very early hour in his time zone. He agreed to do his talk on late notice after a change in plans. Thank you Kristof!

    Here is the description of his talk from WTD EU 2014 (Budapest)


    You could argue that outdated documentation is even worse than no documentation at all. It creates frustration and destroys the trust of your customers. But how do you maintain your documentation in a project with a fast release cycle?

    In this talk I will explore strategies for keeping different types of documentation up to date and discuss a few tools (including WalkHub, an open source project we are working on) that can be used to automatically test or even update documentation as part of your continuous integration process.

    Come enjoy pizza and beer on us and pitch that idea to Portland Seed Fund, a professionally managed early-venture fund with 46 seed and early stage investments.

    You'll have two minutes to pitch PSF alumni, fund managers and mentors, with one tough question served up by a panel of Portland Seed Fund portfolio founders. There will also be time for you to learn more about becoming a Portland Seed Fund company from the alumni who've been through it.

    Space is limited and exclusive to those pitching; pre-registration required: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/portland-seed-fund-pitch-for-a-beer-tickets-12401072943
