7:00 - ??? Presentations & Breakouts.

I plan to demo a new visual thinking tool I've developed called the Dispute Resolution Canvas. Those of you familiar with the Business Model Canvas or Lean Canvas will recognize the basic structure, but I'd like to run through it live and get feedback on ways to improve and/or expand on it. I already have some good initial feedback from a few licensed mediators but the more the better.


If anyone else has something they'd like to demo or discuss, we've still got some room so let me know.

Looking forward to seeing you next week!

Drop in hour for prospective students
Epicodus

Epicodus is a 20 week, full time, in-person class on programming. You'll learn everything you need to know to get a job as a web developer or build your startup's app.

At Epicodus, you'll learn how to build web applications from top to bottom with modern technologies and practices. More importantly than any particular skill, though, you'll learn how to think like a programmer, write good code, and pick up new languages and technologies in this fast-changing industry.

We currently offer three courses: one covering PHP, JavaScript, and Drupal, one covering Ruby, JavaScript, and Rails, and a new class covering Java, JavaScript, and Android. Currently, the Java class is women-only.

Stop in to meet our staff, see the classroom and ask lots of questions. And if you're working on the pre-class homework from learnhowtoprogram.com we can help with that!

Open Source Bridge Raffle

https://tinyurl.com/osb15-raffle-pdxruby

PRESENTATIONS at 7pm

Chase Douglas: Metasecurity - Beyond Patching Vulnerabilities

Rails comes with many powerful security protections out of the box, but no code is perfect. This talk will highlight a new approach to web app security, one focusing on a higher level of abstraction than current techniques. We will take a look at current security processes and tools and some common vulnerabilities still found in many Rails apps. Then we will investigate novel ways to protect against these vulnerabilities.

Evan Carmi: Reverse Engineering - Finding the hidden API

A survey of techniques to debug and reverse engineer services that you may be trying to connect with but don't have an API (like iCloud) or don't have a well documented API (like the rest of the internet).

Lightning Talks

Jonan will host a lightning talk session. There will be a whiteboard to sign up on arrival (first come first serve).

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!

June PADNUG - Let's Talk About the Internet of Things
Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 Auditorium (HF3) Campus

In this course Microsoft's Jeremy Foster gives an introduction to the world of IoT - the Internet of Things. We’ll get definitions for various IoT terms and some bold predictions of the future where the internet is not so much a collection of devices as it is a collection of sensors and gadgets attached to people, vehicles, houses, and a lot more. And we’ll also get the basics of how to write software for these devices using the familiar and rather high level JavaScript language on Node.js. This means that instead of writing difficult code in languages such as C or Wiring, modern IoT hackers can write easy code and have access to the vast number of node modules that already exist. As an example project, you’ll meet Tweet Monkey and see what little it takes to put together your own maker project.

Monthly Maker Meetup
CymaSpace

Make it here! Have some projects you'd like to work on, but could benefit from a creative atmosphere? OSH Park and CymaSpace team up to offer just the space!

We will supply wifi, and a place to share ideas and collaborate with a community of fellow creators and makers. We'll share tips and tricks, and support your creative endeavors! The goal for the meetup is to support the local creative scene while providing an opportunity for people to build a network with people of varied skills. Makers, crafters, and creators of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds are encouraged to bring your projects, supplies, and ideas.

From sewing to electronics to art projects, this will be an incubator for interesting collaborations. For example, if someone comes in to work on an embroidery project, another could show them how to incorporate conductive thread and LEDs to make that project light up. Tips and tricks that can be shared varied depending on who comes to the event. Things shared at previous events include working with Arduino, programming, sculpting, knitting, hand sewing, misc hobbyist electronics tips from component suppliers to soldering tricks.

Please note that while this is a free event, CymaSpace is a non-profit that relies on donations to cover their expenses.

Ruby Book Club
Renewable Funding

Reading through technical books in a group is a great way to learn. You can stay motivated by reading together; better apply what you are reading by actively communicating it, as well as hearing others perspectives that will help you better understand the book. Even if you're a more experienced developer it's a great way to keep your skill sharp and share your wisdom and experience. If none of that is convincing just come and have fun with fellow ruby developers!

We are starting a new book Confident Ruby by Avdi Grimm. This week we will discuss up to page 181 ( including 4.19 Substitute a benign value for nil). Please come having read the chapters and ready to discuss it.

AgilePDX Westside (morning) - How Agile is Agile Enough?
Intel Hawthorne Farms Building 3 (HF3), Auditorium

How Agile is Agile Enough?

Join us for a format introduced at the Intel Agile & Lean Conference: Lean Coffee++

Participants will actively brainstorm and prioritize the agenda and become part of the conversation. Up-votes will continue the discussion, while down-votes mean move on to the next sub-topic.

To guide the conversation we'll seed the topic, and also seed the audience with expert contributors. This is the ++ portion of our take on the LeanCoffee(tm) format.

Seed Topic: How Agile is Agile Enough?

Seed questions: Do large organizations need to accept the same definition of agility as small ones? Is it possible to accept some known impediments and still be considered 'agile'? How do we measure when we have become 'agile enough'?

Counterpoint: Don't Write The Docs
New Relic

The WTD NA conference is coming in May, so it's a good time to start planning for post-conference Meetups. We'll meet again on Tuesday June 9, when Diana Potter, the Senior Director of Customer Success at Customer.io tells us when to say: "Don't Write The Docs".

When I started working as a Technical Writer, our local VP told me that to do my job well, I'd spend significant time testing and pushing for changes to our software. To me, that sounds like the essence of Diana's talk.

Diana manages Customer.io's support/docs team. As such, I expect that her talk will interest Documentarians, Support Engineers, and Knowledge Base Creators. Here is the abstract of her talk:


Writing user facing documentation gives you a unique perspective on software. How does something work? Will the software explode when I push this button? Okay, now how do you explain that explosion to a user, in a way that makes sense and captures their attention?

What do you do, though, when that unique perspective illustrates areas of confusion? Why document something that's confusing? Fix the confusion!

Write the docs that make sense for the user and advocate for product changes on behalf of the "user" too.

How do you decide when it makes sense to document, and when it makes sense to dig in your heels and push for an internal change to the product? How can you use documentation to push for change? Come learn what I've learned, the processes I've put in place, and learn the following chant: "does this doc make sense?"

Science on Tap - Hanford and Our Nuclear Legacy
Kiggins Theatre

Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

Event Description:

Hanford Nuclear Reservation, located on the Columbia River in eastern Washington, is the largest contaminated site in the western hemisphere. Used to make plutonium for nuclear bombs during WWII and the Cold War, the Hanford site generated vast quantities of chemical and radioactive pollution. Cleanup at Hanford began in 1989 and we know it will now continue for generations to come.

At this Science on Tap, Abigail Cermak, Hanford Coordinator with Columbia Riverkeeper, Dirk Dunning, Chemical Engineer & Nuclear Specialist from the Oregon Department of Energy, and Tom Carpenter, the Executive Director of Hanford Challenge will talk about the history of Hanford, how we built the atomic bomb, and what the government is doing to clean up the nuclear waste.


Science on Tap at the Kiggins is produced in partnership with Washington State University Vancouver.


*A note on the suggested cover at the door: Science on Tap is largely supported by money collected at the door. We are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.

We'll start by letting anyone who wants to take up to a minute to tell us what they've been doing with data lately.

This month's paper is Computing Extremely Accurate Quantiles using t-Digests by Dunning and Ertl. (click "raw" to download) Read it or don't - the goal is just to have something to start conversations. "Did you read the paper?" will do nicely.

Tech Talent on the Move - Protecting Your Enterprise When Onboarding and Exiting Key Employees
Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

In today’s world, talent, ideas, and business relationships—the lifeblood of a thriving technology company—are as mobile and transferrable as ever. The departure of a few key employees to a competitor can wreak havoc on an enterprise, particularly when the departing employees take concepts, critical skills, or major customers with them. In that situation, if you’re an executive or human resources professional, you might be more than a bit perturbed at the departing employees, who essentially have “poached” assets that may have taken you and your colleagues years to develop. How do you react? Could it have been prevented?

There’s also a flip side: what if you’re trying to hire the employees? You may well have no designs on your competitors’ IP, but a competitor that’s just lost three of its superstars may not see it that way. What’s the best way to minimize the risk of incurring a competitor’s wrath (and potentially a lawsuit) when recruiting and onboarding key employees? What about strategies and best practices for negotiating new noncompetition agreements with the employees?

On June 17th, a panel of executives, CTOs, and HR professionals will discuss their experiences in onboarding and exiting key employees, with an emphasis on how and when they use noncompetition agreements to protect their businesses. Learn which strategies are likely to work—and which likely won’t.

Panel: Ayla Goren, Sr. Human Resources Manager, Elemental Technologies Suk Kim, Vice President & General Counsel, Urban Airship Ananthan Thandri, Vice President & Chief Information Officer, Mentor Graphics

Moderator: Edward Piper, Associate, Stoel Rives LLP

10 Billion a Day, 100 Milliseconds Per - Joint meetup with Erlang & Elixer Group
eBay Community Lounge

This is a Joint meetup with the Portland Erlang and Elixir User Group.

Brian Troutwine of Adroll will be joining us tonight. Adroll uses Erlang to power their high-speed, never-stop online advertising services. That's right, 10 billion transactions a day.

Brian's talk will provide motivation for the extensive instrumentation of complex computer systems and make the argument that such systems are essential. This talk will provide practical starting points in Erlang projects and maintain a perspective on the human organization around the computer system. Brian will focus on getting started with instrumentation in a systematic way and follow up with the challenge of interpreting and acting on metrics emitted from a production system in a way which does not overwhelm operators’ ability to effectively control or prioritize faults in the system. He’ll use historical examples and case studies from my work to keep the talk anchored in the practical.

Talk objectives: Brian hopes to convince the audience of two things: * that monitoring and instrumentation is an essential component of any long-lived system and

  • that it's not so hard to get started, after all. He’ll keep a clear-eyed view of what works and is difficult in practice so that the audience can make a reasoned decision after the talk.

Bob Loihl will be presenting:
Secure Software Development Life Cycle in an Agile World

In this day and age we must do everything we can to produce secure software. But how you ask? I will be talking about some of the options available and how to get an initiative started in your workplace/project. I will cover some of the choices out there for Agile Development and then we'll examine one choice, BSIMM (https://www.bsimm.com/), in more depth. I will follow that up with a discussion of some of the challenges and some of the benefits of implementing an SSDLC.

Bob Loihl is a Software Engineer with 20+ years of experience developing business applications, leading teams and spreading the security word. He has a strong interest in delivering applications that are secure by design in an agile world. He has been helping Tripwire grow and mature its development processes for the last 10 years and his current hobby is incorporating SSDLC (Secure Software Development Life-Cycle) processes into the software manufacturing process. Bob is passionate about family, software, canoes and guitars. In his spare time he works at Tripwire producing high quality software using Agile methodologies. Oh yeah, he cares a tiny bit about security.

What’s the State of Agile? No—Really: What’s the State of Agile?
Puppet Labs Office in Block 300 Building

Frank D'Andrea and John Halberstadt will be discussing the 9th annual State of Agile survey.

This survey is the largest, broadest and most consistent annual public survey on agile adoption internationally. It provides an interesting look into which types of organizations are using agile and lean approaches, why, what is working for them and what is not. Everything from usage of specific frameworks and methodologies, to team practices to measurement techniques to software tools, and more, are part of this survey.

More than just a review of this survey, Frank and John will lead the dialogue - and potentially a friendly debate - with the Agile PDX audience to suggest "bigger picture" learnings and cautionary tales, as well as to collaborate on how those of us in the agile community can use this information to help within our organizations to further our processes and practices.

John Halberstadt is a Managing Agile Consultant, Coach and Trainer for LitheSpeed, an Agile and Lean-focused training and consulting organization. John has 20 years of diverse, senior-level technology leadership and experience throughout the SDLC, having led, grown and built teams including software engineers, quality assurance, product, program and project management, user experience and IT operations. John is a self-described "excessively pragmatic, lowercase 'a' agilist". He is a firm believer in agile's founding philosophy, principles and its potential to help build happy teams who deliver exceptional products.

Frank D’Andrea, a veteran of multiple Tech Ignite’s and the TAO Agile Smackdown is also Vice President of Software and Business Development at DADO Labs, connects clients, their brands, and their products to the Internet of Things (IoT). DADO’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides best-in-class hardware and software solutions for white-label, turn-key solution for a number of Internet of Things (IoT) clients whose products will be appearing in market over the next 6-12 months. He listens to clients and asks them thoughtful questions regarding direct product management, product direction, and product roadmap across social, mobile, SaaS, cloud, BigData in the IoT space, and identify how DADO can achieve their goals.

Drop in hour for prospective students
Epicodus

Epicodus is a 20 week, full time, in-person class on programming. You'll learn everything you need to know to get a job as a web developer or build your startup's app.

At Epicodus, you'll learn how to build web applications from top to bottom with modern technologies and practices. More importantly than any particular skill, though, you'll learn how to think like a programmer, write good code, and pick up new languages and technologies in this fast-changing industry.

We currently offer three courses: one covering PHP, JavaScript, and Drupal, one covering Ruby, JavaScript, and Rails, and a new class covering Java, JavaScript, and Android. Currently, the Java class is women-only.

Stop in to meet our staff, see the classroom and ask lots of questions. And if you're working on the pre-class homework from learnhowtoprogram.com we can help with that!

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!

Monthly Maker Meetup
CymaSpace

Make it here! Have some projects you'd like to work on, but could benefit from a creative atmosphere? OSH Park and CymaSpace team up to offer just the space!

We will supply wifi, and a place to share ideas and collaborate with a community of fellow creators and makers. We'll share tips and tricks, and support your creative endeavors! The goal for the meetup is to support the local creative scene while providing an opportunity for people to build a network with people of varied skills. Makers, crafters, and creators of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds are encouraged to bring your projects, supplies, and ideas.

From sewing to electronics to art projects, this will be an incubator for interesting collaborations. For example, if someone comes in to work on an embroidery project, another could show them how to incorporate conductive thread and LEDs to make that project light up. Tips and tricks that can be shared varied depending on who comes to the event. Things shared at previous events include working with Arduino, programming, sculpting, knitting, hand sewing, misc hobbyist electronics tips from component suppliers to soldering tricks.

Please note that while this is a free event, CymaSpace is a non-profit that relies on donations to cover their expenses.

Science on Tap - Monkey Business
Clinton Street Theater

Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

COST: $8 online advance tickets, $10* suggested cover at the door

DESCRIPTION:

Caring for animals in captivity is a complicated task and many factors are involved in providing the best quality of life possible. Are the animals healthy? Are they housed in an appropriate environment? Do they experience positive emotions? We often assume we know the answers to these questions, but the needs of animals vary from species to species and can often be met through unusual and innovative means.

At this Science on Tap, Dr. Daniel Gottlieb, Animal Behaviorist and Manager of Non-Human Primate Resources at OHSU’s Oregon National Primate Research Center, will explain how to take a scientific approach to evaluating and improving the welfare of captive animals in a laboratory, zoo, or production setting. Learn about how research is used to improve animal management through specific cases of animal welfare research and enrichment and management strategies for captive primates.


*A note on the suggested cover at the door: Science on Tap is mostly supported by money collected at the door. It is committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.

OWASP Chapter Meeting
New Relic

Talk

At the end of the day, security depends on code. Secure software demands secure code, configuration, management, testing, and constant improvement.

Security automation aligns perfectly with the modern, fast-paced environments like continuous delivery that are quickly seeping into companies of all kinds.

Automation provides drastic results with little effort, but quickly reaches a plateau where the effort involved in finding better results that provide value rises above the value of focusing elsewhere.

In this talk, I will focus on some of the lesser discussed topics of security automation and how they relate to the lines of code that produce the reason why we are discussing security automation today. The goal is to give a complete understanding of the ways that companies like _ and _ have produced secure code that runs their web applications.

Speaker

Neil is currently an engineer at GitHub, co-founder of Brakeman Security Inc., and OWASP Orange County board member. Formerly, he was an application security engineer at Twitter, OC Ruby leader, and AppSec California organizer. Neil enjoys long walks on the beach, long walks in the woods, and long walks anywhere really. His turnoffs include noisy offices, noisy people, and noisy anything really.

Drop in hour for prospective students
Epicodus

Epicodus is a 20 week, full time, in-person class on programming. You'll learn everything you need to know to get a job as a web developer or build your startup's app.

At Epicodus, you'll learn how to build web applications from top to bottom with modern technologies and practices. More importantly than any particular skill, though, you'll learn how to think like a programmer, write good code, and pick up new languages and technologies in this fast-changing industry.

We currently offer three courses: one covering PHP, JavaScript, and Drupal, one covering Ruby, JavaScript, and Rails, and a new class covering Java, JavaScript, and Android. Currently, the Java class is women-only.

Stop in to meet our staff, see the classroom and ask lots of questions. And if you're working on the pre-class homework from learnhowtoprogram.com we can help with that!

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!
