Software & Internet SIG - Evolving your startup, Iterating your Product
Monsoon Software

Any student of business history knows that all great companies have evolved, sometimes radically, from their initial ideas and products. With software businesses , especially web based services, the ability to evolve is much more rapid, and coupled with the availability of quantifiable user feedback.

What are some of the development methodologies that actually work in the real world? How do you tie product iteration to tangible revenue opportunities? What kind of feedback should you seek from your customers? How do you listen to what your disinterested consumers are not telling you? How have other people approached this problem, where have they failed, and how have they succeeded?

Join us for a moderated discussion on this topic and bring your questions and insights.

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,, and and preaches crackpot ideas for harnessing the pending AI explosion for the greater good.

"Max Guernsey: Goad Testing: Guaranteeing that Tests Make Distinctions"
Puppet Labs on NW Park (old office)

Test Driven Development has reached maturity. Goad Testing takes you a level deeper, examining what tests really are and using the outcome of that exercise to derive new ways of keeping software - both production and test - healthy, flexible, and on-specification. Making distinctions is a critical aspect of a test: It allows a test to serve as an executable specification. Sometimes this ability is lost in the course of maintenance. Goad testing is a way to prevent that from happening without introducing significant extra work or complexity.

About Max Guernsey III, Hexagon Software LLC: I’ve been in the software development industry for over ten years. Nearly half of that has been spent mentoring teams in various aspects of Agility, including Design Patterns, TDD, User Story creation & analysis. In the last few years, I’ve become interested in how Lean and Agile fit together.

This event is free and is at our new location, Puppet Labs. It begins at 6:30 pm with pizza, sponsored by PNSQC (Many thanks to both Puppet Labs and PNSQC for supporting agile in Portland).

The program starts at 7:00 pm.

After the program you're invited to join us for a no-host gathering at a nearby brewpub for further discussion of chicken wings and other agile conundrums.

"No-Code Cascading Dropdowns in SharePoint List Forms with PowerApps" @ Portland SharePoint User Group
Microsoft Portland Office (Pearl District)

Are you one of the bazillion SharePoint users that have long been confounded by the fact that Microsoft doesn’t offer a no-code way to do filtered and cascading dropdowns in list forms? Sure, we had InfoPath for a while, but InfoPath is now on life support. At long last there is an answer; using PowerApps, we can customize Modern UI list forms to implement filtered and cascading drop downs. And we don’t even have to write any code. In this session Derek Nishino will walk you through implementing filtered and cascading dropdowns, including the formulas and other PowerApps elements needed to make them work.

"Tungsten Fabric: Open Source Multi-Cloud Networking at Scale" @ PAzUG

Tungsten Fabric (; formerly OpenContrail) is an open source, scalable and multi-cloud networking platform. Large enterprises and service providers are using it at massive production scale, and this meetup offers some tips, insights, and "don't go theres" from users with success stories (and some battle scars).

Come to this meetup to learn how users are deploying Tungsten Fabric for load balancing, HA, service chaining, analytics/orchestration and extending network to multi private / public clouds viz., AWS, Azure and Google.

Sanju Abraham will be our speaker. Sanju Abraham will deliver a project overview, showcase users and use cases. Then, we’ll dive into a demo of Kubernetes with Tungsten Fabric across onprem and AWS. We’ll demonstrate the ability to access Kubernetes and launch new containers, access the Tungsten Fabric UI, and observe the network state.

Tungsten Fabric is integrated with Kubernetes, VMware and OpenStack. It also supports public cloud deployments including AWS, Google and Azure. As both Enterprise and Telco IT architectures evolve, supporting multi-cloud environments is table stakes. This meetup will lay out how users can quickly get going with Tungsten Fabric, using software-driven networking and policy management to operate in a multi-cloud environment.

If you’re interested in networking for private clouds running OpenStack, Kubernetes, and VMware that also rely on services from AWS, Google and Azure, this meetup is for you!

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.

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


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.

10 Billion a Day, 100 Milliseconds Per: Monitoring Real Time Bidding at AdRoll - Portland Erlang / Elixir Meetup
eBay Community Lounge

10 Billion a Day, 100 Milliseconds Per: Monitoring Real Time Bidding at AdRoll

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:

• monitoring and instrumentation is an essential component of any long-lived system and

• 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.

  • Server Side Rendering using RxJS Observables

What we will build

We will apply the principles above as we build a social e-commerce app, complete with:

  • Search and Filtering
  • User authentication
  • Likes
  • Follows
  • Shopping Cart
