PDX Women In Technology (PDXWIT) June Happy Hour
WeWork Pioneer

Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-technology-pdxwit-june-happy-hour-tickets-60902123892] is required to gain entry to this event

Join us for June Happy Hour at WeWork Pioneer Place, hosted by Green Bits!

In our aim to be an organization that supports and empowers women, non-binary folks and people of color, we want to address racism head on. One way that racism can be expressed is through lack of recognition of indigenous lands and erasure of indigenous history. We are moving towards incorporating land acknowledgement into the introduction at all of our events and will be dedicating our June happy hour to providing some additional context on how we will be doing this.

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 p.m. to share important announcements and showcase members of our community:

A representative from our host company Green Bits will share what they do and what job opportunities are available at the company.

We will be joined by Court Morse who will share information about Portland’s indigenous lands and history.

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 section for job seekers and those hiring, to ensure people get connected.

Agenda:

4:30 p.m. - Doors open

5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightening Speakers

6:30 p.m. - Event ends

AgilePDX User Group - Portland Metro - Mob Programming
Cayuse

Please RSVP on our Meetup page to reserve your spot: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/262003435/
If you are unable to attend, please update your RSVP to open your seat for another attendee.

Join us for a hands-on workshop experiencing Mob Programming!

This workshop starts with a short discussion, then we will dive right in to mobbing on a simple programming problem that includes tests! We provide plenty of opportunities to ask questions and reflect on what we're learning.

All skill levels and software disciplines are welcome!!! The mob programming workshop is a risk free, safe space for you to learn and experiment with this energizing and effective way of creating software!

Mob Programming is a software development practice with many benefits - it raises code quality, removes knowledge silos, minimizes mental fatigue, and more. In practice it feels more like a bulldozer than a racecar - unstoppable and thorough.

The core of mob programming is pointing many pairs of eyes on a single problem, pushing all the code through a single keyboard. Each month we'll explore different methods for learning to mob well and reaping the rewards of this practice as soon as possible on your own team.

Directions: The building you are looking for is on 2nd and Taylor (look for the Starbucks on the ground floor). Take the escalators on the 2nd St. entrance to the WTC Building One second floor lobby (ADA access: ground floor elevator). Take an elevator to the 9th floor (press '9' outside the elevators and use the indicated cab). Follow signs to the Cayuse lobby and sign in for the event.

Facilitator Bio:

Jeff Patterson is a software quality engineer at Jama Software, language agnostic, quality evangelist, and non-traditional CS grad. He has facilitated Global Day of Code Retreat, founded a peer group to support Community College CS students transferring to University, and is often heard saying, "Software is made of people!"

Events are made possible by the AgilePDX community and our sponsors, including platinum sponsor ProFocus Technology https://www.profocustechnology.com/. Learn more about our sponsors at https://agilepdx.org/sponsorship.

Esri PDX R&D Center

Writing an operating system, an autonomous multi-agent system, video game, or hacking on a Raspberry Pi? Stuck on a problem and need another point of view? Perhaps you know C++ and would like to interact with others who also have experience with the language?

Meet up with other C++ programmers to learn, share, and develop tips and tricks of the trade, find out what local C++ projects are happening, and especially to better understand modern C++! All experience levels are welcome: You aren't alone on your C++ journey!

Our group is different than some others in that we focus on "modern" C++. We discuss many aspects of the current-- or even future-- C++ standards.

Come hobnob, learn, and share with other modern C++ enthusiasts!

Portland OWASP - Security Requirement Elicitation with Bhushan Gupta
CloudBolt Software

Web Application Security spreads over the application functionality, the platform it is running on, the development and deployment environment, third-party applications used, and last but not least, the open source code it utilizes. The requirements breadth is mind-boggling. You ignore any of these aspects and you become vulnerable.

This talk will discuss a structured approach to establish essential security requirements based on the CIA triad. The discussion will then expand over how these requirements manifest in the industry standards such as PCI, Government agencies, and globally. It will also delve into third party and open source code scenarios. The audience will take home a checklist of different aspects of security requirements to consider when building a Web application.

Bio: Bhushan Gupta, Gupta Consulting, LLC.

A Certified Six Sigma Black Belt (ASQ), he possesses deep and broad experience in solving complex problems, change management, and coaching and mentoring. As a member of Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), he is dedicated to driving the AppSec to higher levels via integration of security into Agile software development life cycle. His research areas are: elicitation of security requirements, comprehensive testing approaches beyond penetration testing, application of test tools and use of AI (Machine Learning) in secure web application development.

PDX OSGeo Monthly meeting
Ecotrust (Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center)

Monthly meeting of the Portland open source GIS group. Projects big and small are usually presented monthly along with rousing conversation and discussion. All are welcome, no need to RSVP - our group ranges from the geo-curious to the überhackers so bring your ideas and questions!

We have a couple of really interesting topics this month:

  • We'll check out "Mapping Inequality" [1], a project out of University of Richmond, University of Maryland, Virginia Tech and John Hopkins. The project uses Leaflet and CartoDB to display georeferenced maps and redlining data from in the late 30's - with a focus on redlining and abrasive, unfiltered racist language that has directly influenced the formation of neighborhoods today.

  • We also have a very cool spatial analysis presentation from Kevin that will show how he used PostGIS, QGIS and Geopy to calculate the most remote locations in Oregon and Washington, along the lines of what Project Remote [2] has been doing for the whole lower 48. Kevin's project also used Leaflet, MapboxGL JS and Turf for visualization.

We'll also cover the latest happenings in geodata, upcoming geoevents and bring your own geo-show and tell, so if you see something interesting in your geo-travels be sure to bring it along to share!

As always, there will be pizza! And BYOB is always welcome.

Our mailing list is here drop us a line with any questions: http://groups.google.com/group/pdx-osgeo

AgilePDX User Group - Portland Metro - From Mindset to Consciousness: Playing the Infinite Game of Human Development
Puppet

Please RSVP on our Meetup page to reserve your spot: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/261472603/
If you are unable to attend, please update your RSVP to open your seat for another attendee.

Agile is part of an evolution in consciousness--in the nature of our awareness and noticing skills and our knowledge of self and other. When agile emerges in an organization, it does so within a consciousness unlike its own. Yet, our approaches to agility often impede its ability to stick where it emerges.

Agilists have used the frames of mindset and learning. But, we need to use the frames of consciousness and development in order to truly transform. In doing so, we see agile transformations are actually personal transformations. Organizations don't change, people change and then the organization adapts.

This deep dive session discusses the agile mindset and puts “mindset” in the context of “consciousness.” It speaks to advancing agilists who are trying to understand why adoptions go wrong when they have done everything "right." You are more likely to receive full value in this session if you have been pursuing agility within organisations for at least three years.

This session provides pointers on how to spot developmental as opposed to lower level learning experiences. It is based on my own practice, on research I did for my master’s thesis, and on my book The Preservation of the Agile Heart: From Mindset to Consciousness.

Learning Outcomes:

· Be able to articulate a working definition of consciousness
· Understand the difference between mindset and consciousness
· Understand how consciousness and human development align
· Understand the difference between learning and development
· Be able to spot learning opportunities that do not facilitate development
· Be able to create opportunities for personal development and self-care in the context of development

About the Presenter:

Jean Richardson is a consultant and coach with nearly 30 years of experience in software development, with half of that time spent in learning about agile and participating in the agile movement. For the last six years she has coached individuals and teams in agile-aspiring organizations. A former AgilePDX Coordinating Committee member, Jean is actively involved in helping, guiding, and coaching the agile community at the local and national levels toward a collective agile consciousness!

Notice: This meeting may be recorded.

Workplace stress is increasing across the board, and there’s plenty of research and data to prove it. According to the American Institute of Stress, "80% of workers feel stress on the job; nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress, and 42% say their coworkers need such help."

Yet most us have a hard time knowing where to begin, especially when it comes to influencing our company culture. Finding agency and resolve for self-care is priority number one; connecting our personal needs to organizational transformation is the ultimate goal. So where DO we begin?

Join us June 25th for a panel discussion and action-oriented evening on tackling this complex, critical topic. Co-hosted by workplace wellness consultancy Health Equity Partners, come ready to listen, learn, share and—we hope—leave inspired and motivated to make changes you need both for yourself, your company, and your community. Added bonus: raffle prizes to get you feeling good.

Melissa Barker is a digital marketing consultant, textbook author, and mentor. Along with first-hand experience as a woman entrepreneur, Melissa specialized in negotiation during her MBA program. In addition, she worked as a debate coach and is currently a mentor for Five One Labs' "Female Founders Fellowship" and helps female entrepreneurs in conflict-affected areas.

FAQ » » »

  1. Who can attend? Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome! This is an inclusive event.

  2. Why is this just for women? Because I believe that traditional negotiation advice falls short for women. This seminar digs into the unique challenges we face as women entrepreneurs and ways to overcome them.

  3. Can I skip the networking and show up at 6pm? Absolutely! I encourage you to come to the networking but only if it works with your schedule.

PDXWIT Summer Soiree
Portland Center Stage at The Armory 128 Northwest 11th Avenue Portland, OR 97209

Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-technology-summer-soiree-tickets-61894666614] is required to gain entry to this event

Join us for our annual Summer Soiree at The Armory, brought to you by Intel and Cambia Health Solutions.

The theme for this year’s Summer Soiree is Social Change in Open Source. It is difficult to break into open source for two key reasons. One, it is community driven technology and many people do not have the time or capacity to do the unpaid work that is often required to get involved. Two, even if you do have the time to contribute, it can be very difficult and even toxic if you are a woman or minority due to harassment by leaders in that space. These barriers, along with so many others that underrepresented folks are facing, make it difficult to have the experience required to obtain sought-after jobs at companies doing open source work.

To support this discussion, our conversation starter for the evening is “how can open source be more accessible to underrepresented communities?”

The Summer Soiree will feature a panel discussion followed by networking.

Moderator: Dr. Harriet Nembhard, School Head of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering at Oregon State University

Panelist: Sage Sharp is a Diversity and Inclusion consultant and the founder of Otter Tech

Panelist: Esther John is Director of Software Stacks Engineering in the System Software Products at Intel Corporation

Panelist: Tara Robertson is the Diversity & Inclusion Strategic Partner for Mozilla

During the event, we’ll have 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.

We will also have a community partners section featuring amazing organizations:

Women Who Code

Adelante Mujeres

Lesbians Who Tech

Girls Inc

Here’s more on our event sponsors:

Cambia Health Solutions, headquartered in Portland, Oregon, is dedicated to transforming health care. Our company reaches more than 70 million Americans nationwide, including more than two million people in the Pacific Northwest who are enrolled in our regional health plans.

Intel Corporation’s Women of System Software is an organization of technical professionals committed to fostering an inclusive environment and building a strong community for women and non-binary people in software technology.

Q: Will there be food and drink at this event?

A: Yes, there will be food and drink available, including vegan and gluten free options.

Q: What is the parking situation?

A: Parking Recommendation: The Brewery Blocks/Whole Foods Underground Parking Garage is the largest lot in Portland and it is located one block from The Armory. It’s a well-lit, security-patrolled underground garage that houses 1,300 parking spaces. There are two entrances to this lot: NW Twelfth Avenue or NW Thirteenth Avenue, between Couch and Davis Streets. The elevators take you into the M Financial Building lobby (just around the corner from the Armory) or into Whole Foods on the corner of Couch and NW Twelfth Avenue.

AgilePDX User Group - Portland Metro - Agile Practitioners Book Club: Simon Sinek's Start with Why
Rogue Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery

Please RSVP on our Meetup page to reserve your spot: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/262070829/
If you are unable to attend, please update your RSVP to open your seat for another attendee.

Join us for a beer (or beverage of your choice) and a snack at the Rogue Eastside Pub to discuss Start with Why by Simon Sinek. (Our poll tied twice, and this is part two!)

Here's the book in a nutshell, according to the handy Amazon description: "In 2009, Simon Sinek started a movement to help people become more inspired at work, and in turn inspire their colleagues and customers. Since then, millions have been touched by the power of his ideas, including more than 28 million who’ve watched his TED Talk based on START WITH WHY -- the third most popular TED video of all time.

Sinek starts with a fundamental question: Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?

People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers had little in common, but they all started with WHY. They realized that people won't truly buy into a product, service, movement, or idea until they understand the WHY behind it.

START WITH WHY shows that the leaders who've had the greatest influence in the world all think, act, and communicate the same way -- and it's the opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY."

Let's ponder and talk about how asking WHY will help us or hinder us on our agile journeys.

Join the #reading channel in our AgilePDX slack workspace to share your thoughts & ideas about this and future reads. Not part of AgilePDX slack? Send a request to [masked] and we'll invite you.

Six Sigma Primer Workshop
Hatch Lab PDX,

NOTE: Proceeds from ticket sales for this workshop go to Lean Portland in support of our volunteer efforts with nonprofits.

Whether you work for a manufacturing company, work in an office, or provide customer service, Six Sigma can help you solve important and challenging problems within your organization, using a structured approach and data analysis.

In this Six Sigma primer we’ll address: - How the DMAIC model and analysis tools increase the chance of solving problems - The different Six Sigma belt certification levels (Yellow, Green, Black and Master Black Belt) - Popular analysis tools such as graphical tools, designed experiments (DOE), measurement studies, statistical process control, regression analysis and statistical software - How Six Sigma compares to Lean - Examples of Six Sigma applied to sustainability (environmental and social) - Exercises for measuring time and conducting experiments

Join Brion Hurley from Business Performance Improvement to better understand how Six Sigma can be integrated into your organization.

Roots of Six Sigma In 1986, engineers Bill Smith & Mikel J Harry introduced Six Sigma within Motorola, as a way to improve business performance, and make it easier for employees to utilize effective quality improvement tools.

Why did Motorola come up with this program? It all began in the late 1970s, when a Japanese firm took over a Motorola factory that manufactured television sets in the United States. The Japanese promptly set about making drastic changes to the way the factory operated by reducing the variation from product to product. The factory was soon producing TV sets with 1/20th the number of defects they had produced under Motorola management, and this translated to fewer warranty claims and customer complaints.

Six Sigma refers to the ability of processes to produce a very high proportion of output within specification (without defects or errors). Processes that operate with "six sigma quality" over the short term are assumed to produce long-term defect levels below 3.4 defects per million opportunities.

After Motorola achieved tremendous quality improvements, the popularity spread to other companies. Jack Welch, CEO of General Electric (GE) made it integral to his business strategy in 1995, requiring his managers to achieve Green Belt certification if they wanted to get promoted.

By the late 1990s, about two-thirds of the Fortune 500 organizations had begun Six Sigma initiatives with the aim of reducing costs and improving quality. Today, Six Sigma continues to be practiced and implemented within many manufacturing, banking, healthcare, service and financial organizations.

The Social Pitch
Hatch Innovation

Applications are due by June 10th!

The next Social Pitch is on September 8th!

The Social Pitch provides emerging social entrepreneurs with an opportunity to receive funding and engage the community with their projects. It is an alternative funding model for community good.

In person attendee: Your ticket price gets you a delicious bowl of soup and a vote. At the end of the afternoon, after hearing the presentations and a short Q&A session with the do-good entrepreneurs, ballots are counted, and prizes are awarded. Remote attendee: Your ticket price gets you a vote. At the end of the afternoon, after watching the presentations and a short Q&A session with the do-good entrepreneurs, your votes via our Facebook poll will be counted, and prizes will be awarded.

What funds the cash prizes? One hundred percent of the ticket revenue goes to funding the Cash Prizes. Your money goes directly to supporting an amazing community project or social enterprise! Thank you!

How does it work?

  1. People with great, early-stage ideas (projects or startups) that will provide lasting benefit to our community submit applications, and we pick five of them to present their ideas.
  2. Then, community members buy tickets to attend—whether in-person or via Facebook Live tickets—with each ticket granting the attendee a vote. If you’re an in-person attendee, you also get to enjoy freshly-baked bread and a bowl of soup brought to you by SoupCycle!
  3. After the five presentations, the attendees vote, and all of the votes are tallied. The presenter with the most votes wins the cash prize!

Beyond the cash prize (everyone is a Winner.) Each presenter receives:

  • Cash Prizes from ticket revenue of The Social Pitch and business service prizes (such as marketing or tech support)
  • Your own custom-made promotional video to use to promote your project (value: $500)
  • Pitch Clinic (value: $50)
  • Up to 30 days of On-Demand membership at HatchLab PDX (value: $675)
  • Plus, the experience and networking the finalists gain from being a part of this program and community (value: priceless)

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.
