Portland JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting
AppFog HQ

Please note that the monthly meet-ups are no longer at Jive Software!

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

On the agenda for this month we have two speakers:

  • Ward Cunningham - How JavaScript has enabled work on the Smallest Federated Wiki
  • Phillip Kerman - CreateJS, a set of libraries for drawing with HTML5 canvas, and upgrading Flash interfaces to HTML5
  • Jake Feasel - Unit testing with QUnit and Continuous Integration with Travis-CI for JavaScript projects

On top of that, this marks four years of JavaScript Admirers meetings! Scott Becker and I organized the first meeting at CubeSpace in January 2009. Come help us celebrate! There may be cake!

Feel free to join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/pdxjs if you too are a JavaScript admirer. Or visit our web site for more information at http://pdxjs.com/.

If you're interested in making a presentation at a future meet-up, please e-mail [email protected].

Oh, and there will be free pizza and beer as always!

Agile Transition Simulation
Robert Half Technology, 2nd Floor Conference Room

We're happy to announce that Elisabeth Hendrickson will be speaking to the Portland Agile Users Group on Wednesday the 17th. She's an energetic and informative member of the greater agile community who periodically comes up from the Bay Area to share her knowledge with us. Her talk on ATDD[*] last year at CubeSpace was great fun and well-received.

This year she'll be taking us through an interactive simulation of an agile transition. When she ran this simulation at Agile 2009, it replicated a number of problems I've seen take months and years to play out on real software teams. Bring your team members! It's far less stressful to talk about problems in the context of an evening's simulation than in the context of three years of product development.

Pizza is sponsored by YesMail of InfoGroup Interactive. Pizza and networking start at 6:30; presentation starts at 7. If there's enough interest, we'll go to a pub afterward for further discussion.

Power Flickr Workshop (Venue is now souk)

Join professional photographer Aaron Hockley for a workshop that's all about the awesomeness that is Flickr. Power Flickr is a 2-hour discussion on using Flickr for all sorts of purposes beyond simple image hosting.

  We'll talk about a wide range of tips and tricks, aimed at both folks wanting to promote their photography as well as those looking to find the best material on Flickr.  There will be a focus on Flickr's community features including how to network with other Flickr users with similar interests.

  A sample of topics to be discussed:
  - Flickr's contacts features explained
  - how to find the best photos on Flickr
  - all about Explore, what it is and tips for getting noticed
  - how to make sure your contacts see your best photos
  - finding relevant communities to contribute and interact
  - driving traffic to your Flickr stream, via Flickr
  - sharing your Flickr content elsewhere including blogs and slideshows
  - third party tools and Greasemonkey scripts

  I'm also open to exploring Flickr topics suggested by you!  Leave a comment here with your question or area of interest and I'll try to address as many as possible during the evening.

   How much is the workshop fee?  That's up to you.  No fee will be collected beforehand... attend the workshop and then choose how much to donate afterwards.  We'll be able to accept cash payment onsite or you can contribute electronically with a credit card (payment info will be provided at the workshop).

   Please <a href="http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/2718162/">RSVP at Upcoming</a> so that we have a general headcount.  This was originally scheduled for CubeSpace and is now being held at souk , an excellent workspace in NW Portland.

  Bring your laptop (or not).  All skill levels are welcome although a basic familiarity with Flickr will be helpful.  Any questions?  <a href="http://www.hockleyphoto.com/contact/">Drop Aaron an email</a>.

CHIFOO Meeting: Understanding, Fostering, and Supporting Cultures of Participation
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

Presented by Gerhard Fischer, University of Colorado

  A culture’s penchant for participation is not dictated by technology; rather it is the result of changes in human behavior and social organization including innovative design, adoption, appropriation, and adaptation of technologies. Gerhard will share his experiences designing and assessing socio-technical environments for cultures of participation. His approach is grounded in the basic assumption that innovative technological developments are necessary for participation cultures, but they are not sufficient. Socio-technical systems are needed because the deep and enduring changes of societies are not just technological, but social and cultural as well. 

  Throughout the evening, Gerhard will encourage the audience to explore two themes: meta-design (a framework aimed at defining social and technical infrastructures in which new forms of collaborative design can take place) and social creativity (focused on harnessing the complex problem-solving power of our interactions with other people and shared artifacts).

  Learn more about Gerhard Fischer and his work at 
  http://www.chifoo.org/index.php/chifoo/events_detail/247/

  Registration begins at 6:30 pm.
  Program followed by questions from 7 - 9 pm.

  We will meet for CHIFOOd, our traditional no-host dinner and chat session, at La Merde at Bistro Montage -- 301 SE Morrison (directly under the Morrison bridge) between 5 and 6:30 pm.

XPDX Meeting: The Art of Ware-as-a-Service
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

The first wave of Agile software development challenged waterfall project management methodologies and traditional Quality Assurance. The next wave of Agile challenges on-premise software through what is known as Software-as-a-Service (or SaaS).

Using Sun Tzu's timeless classic "The Art of War" as a framework, Founder/CEO of Cubic Compass, Mike Leach, presents principles and practices for creating an Agile SaaS organization that challenges the status quo of software development and delivery.

Portland Functional Programmers Study Group: OCaml-based automated theorem-proving

The group meets regularly and provides presentations, demos and discussions applicable to all skill levels, from newbies and experts. The meetings are usually on the second Monday of the month.

An OCaml-based automated theorem-proving textbook

John Harrison, Intel Corporation

My recently published "Handbook of Practical Logic and Automated Reasoning" ( http://www.cambridge.org/9780521899574 ) is a textbook on automated theorem proving with the unusual feature that all the techniques described are accompanied by actual OCaml source code ( http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~jrh13/atp/ ) that the reader can use, modify and otherwise experiment with. I believe that this kind of concrete hands-on approach has significant benefits for many fields of mathematics and computer science, and particularly for the area of automated theorem proving. Indeed, the original ML was specifically designed as an implementation and interaction language (hence Meta Language) for a theorem prover. In this talk I'll describe in more detail my rationale for writing the book in this way, provide a survey of the main contents and give a demo of some of the code.

John Harrison is a Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation, based in Hillsboro OR, specializing in formal verification, automated theorem proving, floating-point arithmetic and mathematical algorithms. He is also interested in the formalization of mathematics for its general intellectual interest and has formalized numerous classic theorems in his own HOL Light theorem prover (see http://www.cs.ru.nl/~freek/100/ ). Before joining Intel in 1998, he received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in England, supervised by Mike Gordon.

Making Sense of User Centered Design and Agile, w Lane Halley and Jeff Patton
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

Love it or hate it, everyone seems to be talking about Agile. Agile is used at scrappy startups that are iteratively defining their products and markets and at large companies with complex business problems working with internationally distributed teams. In each of these different settings, some folks are strong advocates of Agile, while some are still skeptics. Some people in the User-Centered Design (UCD) community dismiss Agile as a fad, others have embraced it whole-heartedly. Can these two worlds intersect?
