The Power of Networking!

Most of us remember our first job: babysitting, dog walking, or pet sitting the neighbor's fish. Most of us don't realize that we got our first job thanks to networking. It was who we knew that needed these jobs done, not what we knew. When it comes to jobs as adults, the same principles apply. Learn how to get to know the right people, grow your network, stand out at networking events, and leverage the people you meet for your next career move with Hannah Michelotti. She is the CEO and founder of Articulate LLC where she does public speaking, presenting, pitching, and communication coaching for clients and businesses. She helps clients and businesses that want to grow their networks, gain more clients, and increase revenue. She'll have great information to share whether you're going for your first tech job or reinventing yourself for your next tech job.

PDX Ruby Monthly Meeting
Planet Argon

The March meeting will be held at Planet Argon, where we're going to learn about the gradual type checker for Ruby called Sorbet, from Getty Ritter and Trevor Elliott who maintain the project at Stripe.

Abstract: "In June 2019, Stripe open-sourced Sorbet, a fast and powerful type checker for Ruby and a tool that has come to be indispensable for writing Ruby code at Stripe. We’ll discuss why and how we built Sorbet, including how specific choices and tradeoffs affected its design and adoption, as well as the experiences we’ve had in adopting, using, and open-sourcing Sorbet, and where we plan to take Sorbet from here."

Our second speaker of the evening will be the new/old organizer of PDX.rb Jonan, with a look through some rarely explored features of Ruby that may surprise you.

Come be social and make some new Ruby friends, we're looking forward to seeing you there!

Sunshine Workshop / Transparency Tool Teach-in
Northwest Academy 1208 SW 13th Ave, 2nd floor Portland, OR

Sunshine Week is a national initiative started in 2005 by the American Society of News Editors. It was established with the goal of bringing awareness to the public about government transparency and freedom of information. The week coincides with the birthday of James Madison, who was a key proponent of the Bill of Rights and of governmental checks and balances. He was born on March 16th, and this year, Sunshine Week takes place March 15 - 21.

Robin Ryan will join us this month to share ways to find hard-to-reach data about our government. She'll lead a workshop that guides us through a series of websites and other resources that reveal details that can help us shine light onto our government and keep it accountable.

This event will be a hands-on workshop, so please bring a laptop or tablet along with your ideas and questions!

We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions 6:15 PM: Presentation

Speaker bio:

Robin Ryan identifies as an investigative reporter and radio journalist focused on issues of social and economic justice. The Transparency Tool Teach-in is a workshop inspired by Sunshine Week, an annual convergence held to promote transparency and accountability in American government. The program is designed to show people how to navigate data-driven websites containing information on everything from money in politics to governmental spending from the hyper-local to the federal level. In the age of fake news, one immediate route to reliability means taking an active role in getting information unfiltered by editorial review.

Agile Fluency® Game night
Agile Fluency Project

Come play the Agile Fluency Game! You’ll gain new insights into the benefits and trade-offs of adopting agile practices—and you’ll have a great time doing it.

The Agile Fluency Game authentically simulates 2½ years on a software development team. It was developed so experiments in the game lead to new insights about your real-world options. As you play the game, you’ll make decisions about which agile practices to adopt. Of course, you have to deliver features, too! Or what’s the point?

This is a great experience for agile team members interested in learning more about their options; managers and leaders wanting to better understand agile development; and people who enjoy modern board games such as Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride.

“Saved us money on our agile transition effort by getting a preview in 90 minutes!” —Director, Agile Center of Excellence

“Makes the need for best practices come to life.” —Manager

“Played first game and beautifully painted ourselves into a corner through the same mistakes real teams make. How’d that happen? Powerful teaching.” —Senior Learning & Development Manager

“[Our leadership team] experienced 20 years of agile learning in 4 hours!” —Director, R & D

“The shift from playing the game gave new focus to our discussion of leadership challenges.” —VP, Product Management

Doors open at 6pm for pizza and conversation. We’ll start playing at 6:30. Be sure to arrive before then: the building is secured at 6:30 and no further entry is allowed.

Secrets of Test-Driven Development with James Shore
Cvent,

PNSQC, in association with PDX Veterans in Technology, is pleased to present "Secrets of Test-Driven Development" with James Shore.

Test-Driven Development (TDD) is an essential part of agile software development. Without it, codebases lose the flexibility they need to change direction and respond to new business needs.

But what is TDD, exactly? And how does it work? In this brief introduction, veteran TDD practitioner James Shore will show you what TDD is, how it works, and why it works. You’ll leave with new insights about this key software development practice.

This event will be hosted by PDX Veterans in Technology with networking and food sponsored by PNSQC.

The agenda is: 6 - 6:30 Networking & Food 6:30 - 6:35 Quick intro to event , thank sponsors. 6:35 - 7:05 Presentation 7:05 - 8:00 Q & A, Socialize 8p - Good night

James Shore teaches, writes, and consults on Agile development processes with an emphasis on technical excellence. He is a recipient of the Agile Alliance's Gordon Pask Award for Contributions to Agile Practice, co-author of The Art of Agile Development, host of “Let's Code: Test-Driven JavaScript,” and co-creator of the Agile Fluency® Model.

InfoQ has named him one of the “most influential people in Agile.” You can find his screencasts at letscodejavascript.com and essays at jamesshore.com.

Moss Drake will represent PNSQC to talk about the call for abstracts and the conference this year.

Monkeys in the Machine (Machine Learning)
Vacasa

Food, learning, sharing and encouragement with the fabulous PHP Community!

This month Eric Mann presents Monkeys in the Machine

Can a million monkeys given a million typewriters produce the collected works of Shakespeare? Considering the ethical concerns of forcing monkeys to write, paired with the sheer mess of that many mammals in one location, we might never know. Or will we?

Thanks to the wonders of modern computing, it's possible to simulate monkeys emulating the Bard. Leveraging techniques like genetic algorithms, we can build a system that approximates a monkey armed with a typewriter. Digitally.

It's a fun exercise to prove a thought experiment, but also a powerful technical approach to leverage machine learning and rudimentary AI in various places. Together, we'll breed digital monkeys and show both how they can be used to answer the aforementioned Shakespearean question as well as produce generative results to more practical problems.

Join us for Happy Hour at Autodesk on March 18th!

We spend quite a bit of time at work, so why not create a community and a work culture that supports meaningful relationships? This month’s theme is Work, Culture and Community. To facilitate this discussion our conversation starter will be: What is one positive way to create a positive work culture?

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase three women in our community. -- An employee of Autodesk will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities. -- Anusha Neelam, PDXWIT Scholarship recipient will talk about developing relationships at work and in the community -- Paris Hyun, PDXWIT Scholarship recipient, will talk about creating the work culture we deserve

During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking: -- An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing; if you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director -- A PDXWIT volunteer opportunities table -- A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected

Parents: PDXWIT has teamed up with DivCarePDX to provide caregiver services for kids ages 2-13! We have a limited number of tickets available and if you would like to register your child for childcare, please contact: [email protected] for information.

There's still time to submit a proposal to present at PNSQC 2020. And, to help you get inspired, we are hosting the second annual Pitchfest to give you quick feedback on ideas.

What is a Pitchfest? Speaking at PNSQC 2020 is your chance to share your software quality expertise and experience on trends, process improvement and technology solutions. The Pitchfest is your chance to quickly propose and iterate on an idea before submitting it.

Appetizers will be provided by PNSQC. We are meeting in the "Barrel Room" (ask at the bar if you can't find it).

Even if you can't attend the Pitchfest, check out the program committee's "wish list" for topics. Remember, proposals for papers must be received by April 15th, 2020 at 11:59 PM PDT.

Here is the URL to submit a proposal https://www.pnsqc.org/2020-conference/call-proposals/

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.

WHAT IS INFORMATION? (2020)
through University of Oregon Portland

What is Information? (2020) will investigate conceptualizations and implementations of information via material, representational, and hybrid frames. The conference-experience will consider information and its transformational æffects—from documents to data; from facts and fictions to pattern recognition; from physical information to differential equations; and from volatility, uncertainty, and ambiguity to collective intelligence and wisdom.

The tenth annual What is…? examines tapestries, temperaments, and topologies of information lenses and practices—including—social and technical, mathematical and semantic, physical and biological, economic and political, cultural and environmental information. Scholars, government and community officials, industry professionals, alumni, students, as well as scientists, artists, filmmakers, grassroots community organizations, and the public are invited to collaborate. We welcome submissions for papers, panels, roundtables and installations.

Call For Proposals: https://blogs.uoregon.edu/whatisinformation/

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.

Faster, More Effective Test-Driven Development (Training)
through Agile Fluency Project

(This is a paid training course. Sign up by using the website link above.)

Are your tests slow, brittle, or prone to random failures? Do you get a sinking feeling when you need to refactor? Do you worry that your unit tests aren’t actually testing anything important? If so, you need this two-day course. Led by industry veteran James Shore, it will change the way you think about testing.

“It provides a solution to what makes unit testing painful and cumbersome.” —Jeff P.

“It was the best workshop I’ve been to.” —anon

“Your course has completely rewired my development brain and changed the way I work for the better.” —Graham M.

In this workshop, you’ll use Node.js to explore a cutting-edge approach to test-driven development that doesn’t depend on mock objects or end-to-end tests. We’ll re-examine test-driven development from first principles to create tests that are fast, reliable, and easy to write. We’ll tackle real-world problems such as testing infrastructure, working with microservices, and working with legacy code.

Learn more and sign up here.

WHAT OUR ATTENDEES SAY

“The NW Power BI Symposium is a fantastic opportunity for business professionals from all industries to learn how Power BI can unleash data-driven insights within their organizations. This event has been invaluable to me as I continue to learn best practices and more sophisticated methods for building high-impact analytics at KEEN Footwear.”

Robert Gillin, Senior Planning Analyst, KEEN, Inc.

“We had analysts across three different teams attend the symposium. Making those connections has really helped break down silos within our own organization and helped build cross-functional teams. We are seeing a great cultural shift and are already looking forward to the next symposium in June.”

Ben Vega, AVP, Data and Reporting Analyst, Frontline Strategy, Umpqua Bank

“Attendees can expect to learn something new and valuable that they will be able to implement right away regardless of their experience with Power BI. The Symposium is a fantastic opportunity to learn about specialized topics in less technical areas, such as Power BI adoption strategies and report design considerations, from local and international experts.”

Stephen Gessling, Business Intelligence Developer, NWEA

Crowd Supply's Teardown 2020
through PCC Cascade Campus

Our third annual party for hacking, discovering, and sharing hardware.

Teardown is about the practice of hardware: prototyping, manufacturing, testing, disassembling, and circumventing, all while having fun. Leave the marketing glitz and talk of venture capital at the door and come prepared to learn and teach.

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.

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.

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.
