Reinventing WI-FI: Technologies Supporting the Applications & Trends of the Future
Virtual Zoom Webinar

This is a joint event organized by the IEEE Oregon Communication Society and the Portland Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM). This event is free and open to the Public Event Banner Abstract: Wi-Fi is an outstanding success story. Although it has been around for decades, it continues to evolve by adding new functionalities, improving performance, and delivering new services. It is difficult to imagine going one day without Wi-Fi. In this talk, we will discuss the latest generation of Wi-Fi technology, namely, Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 6 is a revolution compared to any of the previous Wi-Fi generations because it introduces capabilities that are essential to support a much denser number of devices per access point, best-in-class security, greater capacity, and lower latency. We will cover some performance characteristics of Wi-Fi 6, provide a market update, and conclude with future directions towards Wi-Fi 7.

Why Privacy Matters
Online event

Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. But why should we care about privacy if we have nothing to hide?

In this session, AJ Rice will discuss how a lack of privacy affects us as individuals and as a society. Using specific examples, Rice will cover the direct consequences of a world without privacy and also the more subtle ways an absence of privacy undermines the rights of those who have nothing to hide. This presentation will focus specifically on why privacy matters, and not on what we should do about it.

Bring your questions and join the discussion. We hope to see you there!

Speaker bio:

AJ Rice is a privacy advocate, and the founder & CEO of Privo Mobile. Privo Mobile is a Portland-based tech startup making (private) dumb phones designed for kids with a modern user experience and interface.

    PDXWIT Presents Career Pivots: A Success Story and Lessons Learned
    Online (Portland)

    Registration through Zoom [https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_cc7q1Z8TTeyGoKAtGdIuEw] is required to gain entry to this virtual event

    Prior to World War II, systems — even complex systems — expected the human to fit or adapt to the machine or system. As systems became more complex, this approach started to fail, causing loss and injuries due to "Human Error." This led to the start of Human-Centered Systems Engineering and Design, by designing machines and complex systems to fit the human, not expecting people to adapt to the needs of systems. This is the story of how Deb Mrazek's career as a Human-Centered Systems Engineer evolved and pivoted, as did the discipline of Human-Centered Systems Engineering and Design. Deb co-founded Curiate.co to help people cultivate the quality, profile, and value of human-centered systems design in their organizations through workshops, embedded consulting, interim leadership, and tailored coaching. She believes that only by bridging the language and thinking of business and design can the true value of design truly be realized.

    Agenda: 5:00 p.m. - Webinar opens 5:05 p.m. - Introductions, announcements 5:15 p.m. - Presentation begins 5:45 p.m. - Q&A 6:00 p.m. - Closing remarks/final takeaways/cta 6:30 p.m. - Event ends

    Purpose: 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.

    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.

    PDXWIT Presents Product Management Panel: Deliberate stakeholder communication
    Online

    Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_QSYbNRCsTzW5B4xiDrAKcQ is required to gain entry to this virtual event

    Join us for a panel discussion on Product Management. Our focus will be deliberate stakeholder communication and why it is more important now than ever before. Meaningfully communicating throughout an organization is at the core of what product managers do and is 100% crucial to the success of a team.

    However, having effective conversations to drive progress of a product can be challenging. What are ways you can establish two-way communication with internal and external stakeholders? How do you identify when your communications are failing so you can course-correct? How can you virtually recreate random hallway conversations when you are no longer working from the same physical space? How do you communicate in a matrixed organization when you work with people who are not stakeholders? We’ll cover these topics and more to find compelling communication strategies for you to use at companies of any size. Product managers, those thinking about starting a career in product management, or folks who interface with product managers will all benefit from this discussion.

    The panel discussion will feature:

    Moderator: Arezou Seifpour, Product Lead at Auxon Panelist: Ariel Aguilar, Senior Product Manager at Nike Panelist: Sadie Dickman, Product Director at Kaplan North America Panelist: Katrina Sperry, Product Manager at Gabbi

    Agenda:

    12:00 p.m. - PDXWIT and host welcome 12:05 p.m. - Panelist introductions 12:10 p.m. - Panel discussion 12:45 p.m. - Q&A 1:00 p.m. - Event ends

    Purpose: PDXWIT encourages women, non-binary and underrepresented people to join and stay in tech. Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.

    PDXWIT Presents: How to Study for a Technical Interview
    Online

    Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_bzPRPqopRIGyPFjOc7xTfQ is required to gain entry to this event

    Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful proposition. It is hard to know what to expect or how to prepare for it. Each company evaluates its candidates differently. Luckily, some upfront investment and preparation can really go a long way in helping you distinguish yourself from the rest of the candidates. In this virtual seminar led by engineers at Amazon Web Services (AWS), we will cover some common interviewing practices for technical interviews and what you may be able to do to get ready. We plan to cover many beneficial topics:

    • Morning preparation, attire, mindset
    • Preparation for the non-technical parts
    • How to study for the coding interview
    • How to execute the coding test

    Due to the level of interaction required, attendance will be capped at 50.

    Agenda: 11:30 a.m. - Doors open 11:35 a.m. - Introductions and announcements 11:40 a.m. - Session begins 1:00 p.m. - Session ends

    Purpose: 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.

    Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.

    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.
