    Introduction to Balanced Solutions Mini-Workshop

    Level up your skills, network with peers, and learn to deliver better products, services, and solutions with this unique workshop from nuCognitive.

    Developing solutions to customer problems is complex balancing act. Some products fail due to a flawed business model while others are neither desirable nor useful. This workshop invites teams to shift their thinking from developing a product or service to delivering a holistic solution that balances business, usage, and technology.

    The Three-Circle Model is both a descriptive and a prescriptive approach to develop holistic solutions. It is based on the three fundamental perspectives needed for a balanced and compelling solution; Business, Usage, and Technology. -The Business circle represents the economic viewpoint. A solution must be marketable, profitable, and affordable. -The Usage circle represents the conceptual viewpoint. A solution must be desirable, usable, and useful. -The Technology circle represents the implementation viewpoint. A solution must be manufacturable, functional, and consumable (by the industry and associated ecosystems).

    These three circles can be arranged in a Venn diagram with overlaps for Value, Capability, and Ingredients.

    The Three-Circle Model forms a cohesive and consistent taxonomy that can be used by organizations as the basis of a shared vocabulary, thereby reducing misinterpretations and wasteful communication churn. The model is also the underlying architecture for a solution life cycle. Unlike other life cycles with phases that are based on activities (e.g. exploration, planning, development), the solution life cycle’s phases are based on the state of the solution itself. This makes the life cycle activity and method agnostic, so it works with Agile, Lean, traditional, and hybrid approaches.

    Learning Outcomes: -Describe the three fundamental perspectives of a solutions: Business, Usage, and Technology -Describe the three two-circle overlaps in the model: Value, Capability, and Ingredient -Understand what a balanced solution means -Evaluate a product, service, or solution using the model to locate weaknesses and knowledge gaps -Apply the Three-Circle Model to a solution life cycle -Improve communication among teams using a common vocabulary and taxonomy for solution development -Use the model to diagnose and improve issues in solution development

    Who should attend: Product management, product owners, product developers, service designers, architects, product managers, engineers, business development, business strategy, marketing, planners, project managers, software developers

  • PDXWIT #Action History of Activism Workshop

    Perka

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite

    We started PDXWIT #Action in January to help our community get involved in the issues we care about. In May, we are holding a workshop with organizer Natalie Sundeleaf Sept to help give us historical context for our work moving forward.

    This workshop provides a framework for how to organize and create momentum for social justice in their community. It’s for anyone, from the curious beginner to the established organizer. The content is an overview of activism and organizing in America, including what worked or didn’t work, where we are now and what we see both locally and nationally. The workshop includes an interactive lecture and also discussion.

    Agenda:

    5:30 - 6:00 Networking 6:00 - 7:30 Workshop

    Natalie Sundeleaf Sept is a sixth generation Oregonian with broad ties to the political and art communities of Portland. Her work includes time with Congresswoman Bonamici and Commissioner Fish, as well as President Obama’s 2008 campaign. She was most recently an advance staffer for Hillary Clinton. She is a trained painter and splits her time at community events and in the studio. Her art maintains a civic lens and received local fame for the Dishwasher Project in 2013. When she's not painting or organizing, she's running, hiking or watching basketball.

    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.

  • Value-driven Delivery Mini-Workshop

    Level up your skills, network with peers, and learn to accelerate stakeholder value delivery with this unique workshop from nuCognitive.

    The first Agile principle is "Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software." However, in practice this does not seem to be true nearly as often as it should be. Teams often fail to provide early, frequent delivery of stakeholder value. Instead, they focused on spikes, class libraries, infrastructure, and other inward-focused work, without an understanding of their stakeholders and what they value. As a result, many teams start with what is most familiar, easiest, or most convenient for them rather than what stakeholders value most.

    Why do teams often become focused on (or even obsessed with) feature development and maximizing development velocity? Without explicit focus on value, the association between velocity, feature development, and value-delivery is weak - perhaps even non-existent. At best, these projects are conducted sub-optimally. Frequently, they fail when stakeholders remove funding because they perceive a lack of value add.

    Value-driven delivery is achieved using the answers to three simple, but not at all easy, questions: 1. Who are your stakeholders? 2. What do they value? 3. What are you doing in the next two weeks or less to provide value to them?

    Teams often have many more stakeholders than they first realize. Value-driven Delivery ensures those stakeholders are made explicit, and that the list of stakeholders is kept current throughout the project.

    Value-driven delivery captures and maintains stakeholder values in a quantified, verifiable way. This ensures that teams can know the real effects of each stakeholder value delivery, and prevents work based on an outdated understanding of value.

    Value-driven Delivery also challenges teams to sequence deliveries so that they deliver the most valuable things first. This can have tremendous benefits, generating early business results and reducing the time required for the team to get into a positive Return on Investment for the project.

    Value-driven delivery makes a natural overlay for Scrum, but does not require Scrum's use to be effective. Value-driven delivery does not ignore features and velocity, but it explicitly places value delivery above those things as the top priority.

    Two other advantages to Value-driven Delivery worth mentioning: First, it is not limited to software, but applies to all aspects of an organization, including the executive suite, human resources, finance, IT, and product teams. Second, it is not focused on or limited to any particular scale. In fact, it is scale-free, working on small teams and teams of more than 500 engineers in a 100K-person company.

    Learning Outcomes: -The definition and nature of value -The principles and practices of Value-driven Delivery -How to use Evolutionary Delivery to manage value-driven work, alone or in concert with Scrum -Fundamentals of several disciplines and models that aid value-driven work, including the Kano Model, elements from Diffusion of Innovations, UX Proof Points, and the HEART Framework -Attendees will gain enough understanding to begin using Value-driven Delivery in their own work if they desire. -Additional sources of information will be provided for continued learning.

    Who should attend: Product management, product owners, product developers, service designers, architects, product managers, engineers, business development, business strategy, marketing, planners, project managers, software developers

  • pdxrlang meetup: Chester Ismay: Creating the fivethirtyeight R data package

    Speaker: Chester Ismay (https://github.com/ismayc) - Instructional Technologist and Consultant for Data Science, Statistics, and R at Reed College

    Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss the motivation behind creating a data package using the data from the stories produced by FiveThirtyEight. I’ll also walk through the process of creating a data package in R and some of the vignettes for the package that have been created by my students and others from throughout the world. Lastly, I’ll discuss some ideas (that I’d love to work with others on) for other data packages in R that can better serve the R community by helping novice and intermediate R users work with and tidy “messy” data.

  • Papers We Love @ PDX - Gorilla: A Fast, Scalable, In-Memory Time Series Database

    This paper will be presented by Johannes Hoff.

    This paper describes how Facebook stores 700 million data points (timestamp and value) per minute and keeps 26 hours of it available in memory for fast access. We will mainly look at the compression algorithms making this possible.

    Here is the abstract:

    """

    Large-scale internet services aim to remain highly available and responsive in the presence of unexpected failures. Pro-viding this service often requires monitoring and analyzing tens of millions of measurements per second across a large number of systems, and one particularly effective solution is to store and query such measurements in a time series database (TSDB).

    A key challenge in the design of TSDBs is how to strike the right balance between efficiency, scalability, and relia-bility. In this paper we introduce Gorilla, Facebook’s in-memory TSDB. Our insight is that users of monitoring sys-tems do not place much emphasis on individual data points but rather on aggregate analysis, and recent data points are of much higher value than older points to quickly detect and diagnose the root cause of an ongoing problem. Gorilla op-timizes for remaining highly available for writes and reads, even in the face of failures, at the expense of possibly drop-ping small amounts of data on the write path. To improve query efficiency, we aggressively leverage compression tech-niques such as delta-of-delta timestamps and XOR’d floating point values to reduce Gorilla’s storage footprint by 10x. This allows us to store Gorilla’s data in memory, reduc-ing query latency by 73x and improving query throughput by 14x when compared to a traditional database (HBase)-backed time series data. This performance improvement has unlocked new monitoring and debugging tools, such as time series correlation search and more dense visualization tools. Gorilla also gracefully handles failures from a single-node to entire regions with little to no operational overhead.

    AgilePDX Dntn Pub Lunch: Is the Team Responsible for Delivery or Delivering Value

    What do we really expect from an agile team? Are they expected to just deliver what they're told? Participate in deciding what to deliver? Or, are they really supposed to be focused on delivering value? Does any of this have to do with their maturity and the extend to which they are caught in a web of constraints and impediments?

    We have opinions. How about you?
