Rejected Oscon Talks : Charity Drive and Critique : A collaboration between #FullStackPDX and the neo4j Team!
WeWork Custom House

This month we have lined up a super special event!!!!! ————————————————————————

When the neo4j team reached out to us to setup an event during OSCON we jumped all over this. Not only will we be having the presentations you are all used to, but we will be welcoming a number of talks that did not make the cut for the OSCON conference. On top of this, 100% of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood

Just like fight club, if this is your first night attending, you have to present.

We have all heard the pitch before, and we make no exceptions to this rule. Since this meetup is in the larger space we will have a projector you can hook up to, or just use the sound of your voice. What should you present? Well, we do not spec that.

Discussing your startup, recent project, code reviews, business ideas, etc. are all applicable. There is not a required length of time to present. This can be a live prototype or even a set of powerpoint slides. You do not have to know how to code to present your dream, and we are HERE TO HELP you. Presentations are meant to be collaborative, not the traditional meetup style where a presenter talks like a teacher for a very long time and saves questions for the end. We use a timer and the group dynamic works to collaboratively prevent cross talk and side conversations.

So bring your fun spirit, desire to learn, passion to help others, and let's have fun.


Signups through are required and seats are limited, so buy your tickets early because we usually sell out. We are self funded, and 100% of the revenue received is put back into the meetup costs. We will have top shelf pizza from Crown PDX ( so come HUNGRY for dinner!!

Doors open at 6pm and we kick off on time. We start consuming the pizza at 6pm as well. After the concert of presentations we will walk over to Bailey's Taproom ( to continue the evening.


Location: WeWork Customs House : Community : When you check in ask for CP Handheld, they are our sponsor. The room is right to the left as you walk in.

Community Leadership Summit 2018
through Oregon Convention Center

From the site:

The Community Leadership Summit 2018 brings together community leaders, organizers and managers and the projects and organizations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community. The event pulls together the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community.

At the heart of Community Leadership Summit 2018 is an open unconference-style event in which everyone who attends is welcome to lead and contribute sessions on any topic that is relevant. These sessions are very much discussion sessions: the participants can interact directly, offer thoughts and experience, and share ideas and questions. These unconference sessions are also augmented with a series of presentations from leaders in the field, panel debates and networking opportunities.

Note from the person posting this:

This event is free, easy to pop into and check out, and great for anyone interested in community. There's a strong tech focus as this is right before OSCON in the same venue, so if you work in tech and are interested in anything related to communities, it's especially useful.

Docker Meetup
New Relic

Hey Docker Portland! Gear up for our next meetup at New Relic! We nabbed Docker's Jérôme Petazzoni, Digital Insight's Kenny Bastani, and EMC's Jonas Rosland, all of whom will be in town for OSCON. See you there!


6:00pm - Welcome/ Food & Beverage thanks to New Relic!

6:30pm - Kenny Bastani: Building Microservices with Spring Cloud and Docker

In this talk I will introduce you to the Spring Cloud platform for building cloud-native applications in Java. We will take a look at some of the common patterns for microservice architectures and how to use Docker to containerize multiple microservices as a part of a Maven build process.

We will then dive into a microservices example project of a cloud-native application built on Spring Cloud. Using this example project, I'll show you how to use Docker Compose to spin up a microservice cluster on a development machine. We will then perform a series of end-to-end tests without needing to deploy to a test environment.

By the end of the talk we will cover the following topics:

• Implementing service discovery using Docker containers

• How to use a config service to externalize environment configurations

• How to route REST API requests through an API gateway

• Building container images as a part of a Maven build

• How to do end-to-end testing using Docker Compose on a development machine

7:00pm - Jonas Rosland: Scale-out data persistence for all your stateful container needs

7:30pm - Jérôme Petazzoni: Deep dive into Copy-on-Write and Docker storage drivers

The first release of Docker only supported AUFS, and AUFS was available (out of the box) only on Debian and Ubuntu kernel. Then Red Hat wanted Docker to run on its distros, and contributed the Device Mapper driver, and later the BTRFS driver, and recently the overlayfs driver. Docker 1.7 has support for ZFS. We will present how those drivers compare from a high-level perspective, explaining their pros and cons. This will help the audience to make more informed decisions when picking the most appropriate driver for their workloads.Then we will see each driver in action, and look at low-level implementation details. We won't dive into the golang implementation code itself, but we will explain the concepts of each driver. This will help to better understand how they work, and give some hints when it comes to troubleshoot their behavior.

8:00pm - Wrap-up and Social

IPFS Portland OSCON Meetup: The Permanent, Distributed Web

Join us at CtrlH for food, drinks, discussion and a talk by Juan Benet on IPFS during OSCON week!

What is IPFS?

IPFS is a distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. In some ways, this is similar to the original aims of the Web, but brings in the latest ideas from P2P and cryptography to form a distributed, permanent web.

IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace HTTP. It could complement or replace even more. It sounds crazy. It is crazy! We also think it's the future of the web. Come see it in action, and meet the team of developers working on it.

Afterwards hang out, talk tech, hack, recharge your batteries, use our fast WiFi and get a tour of CtrlH, Portland’s newest and largest hackerspace.

See you there!

Talk about "Better Stories, Better Technologies"
New Relic

Note: We'll give away one free 3-day pass to OSCON 2015, good July 22-24. Sign up when you arrive, and we'll raffle off the pass after the talk is complete!

If you attended the Write The Docs 2015 Conference, you know the importance of User Stories, and how they lead to more readable documentation.

On July 14 (Bastille Day!), Amelia Abreu will give us her take on the User Story, when she talks about:

  • Better Stories, Better Technologies:

Technologies all have stories behind them, some we hear, some we don’t. From the genesis of a product idea, to the way that technologists characterize their work, to documentation, to startup origin stories. Development frameworks operationalize stories as a way to build features. Documentation tells a story, and speaks to certain stories about our users.

How can documentarians think critically about the way that we tell stories? How do we confront times when some stories get told over others? How do we talk about our successes, and how do we not talk about our failures? Whose stories get heard: how do women, people of color, disabled people, and “non-technical” workers get left out of the stories we hear?

In this talk, I’ll explore some of the ways that stories and storytelling are used in building technologies. I’ll share what I’ve found in looking at stories in technology, and propose some practical solutions for telling better stories and using them in building products.

Portland Linux/Unix Group: An Open Hardware Case Study: The AK-47
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

Who: Beth 'pidge' Flanagan

What: Open Sourcing the Modern Battle Rifle: Legal and technical implications in home building the semi-automatic AK-47

Where: PSU, 1930 SW 4th Ave. Room FAB 86-01 (Lower Level)

When: Thursday, August 7th, 2014 at 7pm

Why: The pursuit of technology freedom


A look at the technical and legal issues surrounding home construction of firearms, focusing on semi-automatic AK-47 style rifles.

Home gun building brings interesting legal and technical challenges needed to keep someone both safe and on the right side of the law. This requires an individual to be both an amateur metalsmith as well as knowing the ins and outs of firearms and international patent law. This talk will discuss the building of the semi-automatic AK47 rifle from a technical perspective, from demilling parts kits to the construction of a fully functional semi-automatic weapon.

We will also discuss the origins of the AK design, the history of it’s variants and its current patent status as a public domain firearm design, delving into Soviet and Russian Federation patent law as well as US firearms law.


Beth 'pidge' Flanagan is an embedded linux geek who works at Intel's Open Source Technology Center on the Yocto Project.

Beth also gave a keynote at OSCON 2014, "Yes, Your Refrigerator Is Trying To Kill You..."

Many will head to the Lucky Lab NW at 1945 NW Quimby after the meeting.
