PDX Exploit Workshop
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

Hey everybody. Got a bug you just can't land? Is there a recent CVE you've been eyeballing seductively? Just want to brush up on your APPSEC or OPSEC? Do none of the above questions make any sense, but you're interested in computer security?

PDX Exploit Workshop is the longest running security meetup in Portland (10 years!). It's an open, self driven event for people interested in computer security. Whether you're a novice or career professional, all are welcome. It's always a good time to learn about security!

We spend this dedicated time each week researching and exploring topics of software and hardware security as well as working on personal and group projects. Occasionally we have presentations on our findings. Bring a willingness to learn, a curiosity about security, and/or a specific area of interest to share with others.

This group meets in the PDX Hackerspace mainspace which has comfy seating, deluxe wifi (thanks Kyle!), Club Mate soda in the snack shack, and hackable LED displays to play around with.

p.s. This event is open to everyone! No ^H membership is required to attend. All are welcome. That means you!

Thursday, June 7, 2018 Applying Clojure's Principles to Its Culture w/ Tom McTighe
Puppet

Portland has a fairly lively Clojure ecosystem -- how can we leverage that base and become a hub of Clojure culture?

The biggest opportunity appears to be in helping newcomers connect the dots. The language was designed to be clear, consistent, practical, and empowering -- this talk will explore how we can apply those principles to support the local scene and create an onboarding model other groups can use.

Bring your gripes and ideas.

Bio: New to the language and somewhat obsessed, Tom has worked as a writer, editor, and programmer. He hosts the Tuesday night Clojure Study Crew, and is currently building what he hopes will be the next best Clojure documentation tool.

Un-Redacting the Mueller Report and Abstracting the News with NLP @ PDXPython & Pyladies PDX Presentation Night
New Relic

Un-Redacting the Mueller Report and Abstracting the News with NLP By Hobson Lane and Al Kari

Hobson will show you how to write a python "mad-libber" that can unredact the Mueller Report. The first person to correctly predict the next word better than the mad-libber will win an autographed copy of Natural Language Processing in Action, a book produced through open collaboration among Portland Python User Group Members, led by Cole Howard and Hannes Hapke. Then Hobson and Al Kari will show you how they use this same state-of-the-art language model to generate meaningful abstractive summaries of technical documents like clinical medical records.

About our speakers: Hobson Lane's first Python apps were built with the help of friends at the Portland Python User Group almost a decade ago. Since then he's been using Python for everything from chatbots to building energy consumption forecasting. He's now CTO at Deep Canopy where they build smart cameras for industry. In his spare time Hobson teaches Python and data science on Springboard.com, Thinkful.com, and Totalgood.com and preaches crackpot ideas for harnessing the pending AI explosion for the greater good.

Al Kari is a Google Developer Expert (GDE) in Machine Learning, organizer of the TensorFlow-Northwest meetup group and CEO of Manceps, an engineering company focused on providing intelligent automation solutions to innovative businesses.

Join us afterward at Bailey's Upper Lip Upstairs Taproom 213 SW Broadway to continue the discussion over a beverage.

"Anthropology of emotions and the economy": Tax and Conversation weekly meetings
Collective Agency Downtown

If you could choose to live in a world where you'd feel more of an emotion, which would you choose? Happiness? Fear? Excitement? Contentment? Comfort? Something else?

When you think about income tax, what do you feel? What do you think? What would you prefer? What questions do you have about emotions and the economy? We'll talk in a structured Q&A, share perspectives, and learn a lot.

Open to the public and members of Tax and Conversation. RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/424700254246488 Agenda: https://taxandconversation.com/2012/11/01/tues-nov-6th-6pm-anthropology-of-emotions-and-the-economy/

"Cultural myths around income tax": Tax and Conversation weekly civics meetings
Collective Agency Downtown

There are some cultural myths around income tax. We'll talk through frequent questions, and see whether the fact-based answers are relevant. We'll start by choosing the 3-5 most relevant questions to us in view of a constitutional amendment for Oregon in 2014 on income tax reform.

Some questions include: "Why government?" "What about rich people?" "Doesn't the tax law need to be nuanced to incentivize people to work?" "Is this income tax reform political?" "How do we know we can we trust the tax reform to be good for everyone in Oregon?" (These are all real questions I've been asked which touch on core issues where the answer is not obvious.)

What would you like to learn? What are you concerned or excited about? Areas for questions will include tax, membership, and/or this organization (at least one of each).

Agenda 6-7pm Tues Nov 13: 1. Intro who we are, what we're working on. 2. Choose three or five questions, talk through, share perspectives, learn. 3. Review what did we like, what can be better next time.

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/366214123469511/

“By simplifying income tax laws for people to have more equal lives, everyone will be more comfortable, able to live more humanly.”

"No Pitch" Coffee
Urban Grind Coffee House

One of the worst parts about networking are the individuals that use the events to pitch their products and services. We all know that is part of the deal when networking but it can be highly annoying. Because the focus of this site is on peer advice between small business owners, PortlandSmallBusiness.com is starting a series of weekly "No Pitch" coffee networking events around town. These are intended to be very informal meetings. You show up, order your coffee and you talk with other small business owners. I plan to alternate between coffee shops around inner Portland and if it gets too big, I'll find a bigger space.

#FullStackPDX : August : Critique
WeWork Custom House

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

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 computer, fun spirit and desire to learn, and let's have fun.

Signups through meetup.com 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 (http://www.imperialpdx.com/the-crown/) 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 (http://www.baileystaproom.com/) to continue the evening.

Location: WeWork Customs House : Room 1C : When you check in ask for CP Handheld, they are our sponsor. The room is right to the left as you walk in.

Event Description

Talk by Logan Kleier Talk by Logan Kleier - Logan is the chief information security and privacy officer for the City of Portland. Prior to this role, he worked in the private sector in a variety of product management and marketing roles for software and telecommunications companies. He has a Bachelors of Arts in history and political science and a Masters in public policy from Georgetown University.

The presentation presents a framework to aid government decision makers in the publication of various data sets.

(Postponed) Esri Geo Hackathon!
through TBD - Portland

UPDATE: Due to several people on our team being out of town, we've had to postpone this event until later this year. We'll be sure to add it to calagator when we pick a new date!


We're throwing a big hackathon to showcase a bunch of new Esri tools! Come be some of the first to check out new and improved documentation, user interface and new SDKs and APIs for Esri's core technology.

New to Esri? Basically, you can do anything add any kind of geo-functionality any product or app you're working on. From maps and data, geocoding and routing, demographic data and more, you'll be able to check out and test work from Esri R&D Center Portland and Esri HQ in Redlands!

There will be plenty of free food and drink, and networking kickoff the night before. Teams will have Friday night until 6pm Sunday to build apps using Esri technology. We'll have sample code on Github and a ton of example projects. There will also be plenty of Esri devs on site to help out.

Who should attend?

Feel free to participate if you're a designer or developer, college student, professional, high school student or someone just interested in geo. Keep in mind that this is a developer hackathon, so you should arrive with at least some knowledge of HTML/CSS so that you can contribute to a team. If you don't know HTML/CSS but are a skilled graphic designer, we need you too! Think of it as a playground for trying new things out.

What kind of prizes will there be?

Prizes will be announced soon, but suffice it to say they will likely be interesting objects that fly through the air. Also, free conference tickets and Esri software credits for runner ups.

***CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER***: UX Book Club PDX is talking about A Web For Everyone by Sarah Horton and Whitney Quesenbery
Mozilla

CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

Come along and join us to talk about A Web For Everyone by Sarah Horton and Whitney Quesenbery, which is a very useful book on accessibility and universal design. Additionally, we're going to be joined by Whitney on Skype to discuss creating digital content for everyone, including people with disabilities. Accessibility is a huge subject, and one that is frequently overlooked by designers and developers, even though there are laws covering the rights of people (for example, employees and members of the public) to be able to access information.

Come along with any of your team to discuss the important topic of accessibility and how it's not something you tack on at the end of a project, but something that can improve the usability of a product for everyone.

For information on where to buy the book, and a limited-time 30% discount code, see the post in our Google Group.

If you haven't finished reading the book, please still come along and join in the conversation.

**TUESDAY** The Digital Defense Fund and information security in abortion access
Virtual

NOTE: this meeting is on the 3rd TUESDAY because of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday!

The 2020s have seen new and complex challenges for those fighting for reproductive freedom. In September of last year, the Texas legislature passed one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the nation, prohibiting all procedures after 6 weeks, without exceptions for rape or incest. But SB8 goes further, giving citizens with no connection to the woman the right to sue in civil court any person who aids her in seeking an abortion. As Planned Parenthood states, this means that “private citizens can sue other Texans for having or aiding in the procurement of an abortion — they can sue anyone from the person who drives the patient to the clinic to the doctor who performs the abortion.” (https://www.plannedparenthoodaction.org/planned-parenthood-pennsylvania-advocates/blog/how-did-texas-get-to-sb8) As the EFF predicts, “The result will be a chilling effect on speech and a litigation cudgel that will be used to silence those who seek to give women truthful information about their reproductive options.”

Since 2017, the Digital Defense Fund has brought engineers and organizers together to provide security and technology support for the abortion access movement. Kate Bertash, Director of the DDF, will speak during our January event about the critical work the DDF does to create "a future where technology and innovation support secure, autonomous reproductive decisions, free from stigma.”

Speaker bio:

Kate Bertash (she/her) is Director of the Digital Defense Fund, a team providing technology and security resources and front-line support to the American abortion access movement. She brings together a background in nonprofit fundraising and technology, and left startup life after co-organizing the Abortion Access Hackathons and Debug Politics Hackathons. In her free time she helps organize the Crypto and Privacy Village at DEFCON, designs fabrics, and is working on building a science research and education center here in the Pacific Northwest.
