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.

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.

Public Tech Talk: "A Semi-Topological View of Real-World Consensus" by Dr. Jamie Gabbay
This talk will be live-streamed and is open to the public. To receive Zoom meeting information, send an email request to: [email protected]

In the real world, people join humanity, grow up trusting very different quorums from one another, and they may change their quorums with time. In technical terms we could call this an open permissionless system with mutable local quorums.

One might expect such a system to be a jumbled disorder — and yet, somehow, it self-organises into uniform areas of fairly stable consensus. One might almost suspect there could be some deep mathematical principles involved!

In this talk I will discuss consensus in a permissionless open system with mutable local quorums, and show how a topological view of the system gives a clean mathematical analysis with surprisingly good explanatory power.

PDXWIT Presents: LGBTQ+ Coming Out Stories
Online (Portland)

Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_hZXwDBnPRfWs03JkCARVlA is required to gain entry to this virtual event

This year marks the 32nd Anniversary of National Coming Out Day! Join PDXWIT and host Slalom for a night of coming out stories.

After 32 years, National Coming Out Day still continues to raise awareness for folks in the LGBTQ+ community and spread the idea that homophobia thrives in silence. On this day, many of those who identify as LGBTQ+ come out to friends and family about their sexuality. There is power in coming out and living your truth.

On October 11th, 1987 over 500,000 people marched on Washington for Lesbian and Gay rights and we continue to celebrate and fight for rights in the community today. One out of every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. For transgender people, that number is only one in 10. Coming out STILL MATTERS! It takes bravery, and every person that speaks up changes more hearts and minds, and creates new advocates for equality.

A representative from Slalom will talk about their organization and will let us know if they are hiring. Speakers from Portland and beyond will share their coming out story and how being a part of the LGBTQ+ community has changed their lives.

Agenda: 5:00 p.m. - Doors open 5:05 p.m. - Introductions and announcements 5:15 p.m. - Storytelling begins 6:00 p.m. - Q&A 6:30 p.m. - Event ends

Public Tech Talk: "Some Recent Results in Secure Computation" by Dr. Dov Gordon
This talk will be live-streamed and is open to the public. To receive Zoom meeting information, send an email request to: [email protected]

Secure multi-party computation (MPC) allows multiple parties, each holding private data that they are unwilling to share, to collaborate to perform computations over their data, while revealing nothing other than the result. The theory behind secure computation is already 35 years old, but in the last 15 years researchers in the field have demonstrated tremendous improvement in performance. Today, a confluence of factors are driving an increased interest in secure computation, both in the public domain and in industry, including the advancements in MPC mentioned above, the explosion in the volume of private user data being generated, and the advancements in machine learning that are being deployed to leverage that private data.

In this talk, I will give an overview of several of my recent results that has helped scale the performance of secure computation. In the first half of the talk, I will focus on the setting where we have large volumes of data and a secure computation that is out-source to a small number of servers — the Few-PC setting. I will focus on a security relaxation that allows us to improve communication costs asymptotically and concretely for a large class of computations. In the second half of the talk, I will describe several results that allow us to scale MPC to thousands or even millions of parties, by demonstrating a protocol that requires less communication and computation from each participant as the number of participants grows.

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.
