Service Design PDX - Monthly #ThinksnDrinks
10 Barrel Brewing Co

Meetup Structure:
2018 marks our 3rd year as a meetup! We meet at 10 Barrel every other month for casual #thinksndrinks and chats. This is perfect for someone who wants to learn about Service Design, talk about new trends, share current projects, and ask for advice from the group.

You will be able to find us at 10 Barrel because we will be the only people with print outs, worksheets, post-its and sharpies. :) We sketch. We talk. We have beer. It's a good time.

Every other month when we're not at 10 Barrel, we host hands-on service blueprinting workshops. In exchange for hosting our group, we collect problem statements/ user scenarios from our hosts in advance, and lead a hands-on workshop to build service design blueprints and deliver recommendations in 2 hours. Location of the workshops will vary.

If you have a connection to a business who might be interested in hosting us for a workshop, please send along an introduction: [masked]

To dive in to everything Service Design, our favorite resource is http://www.practicalservicedesign.com. Check out the community on Slack!

PASCAL Hackerspace - Hack2Learn: Hackers, Assemble!
226 SE Madison St

**NOTE**

While we will continue to work on the microcorruption CTF for the next several Hack2Learn workshops, the next meetup we are going to take a side quest and focus on a very special challenge involving hardware. It will be our first crack at embedded device security as a group. For more details- come see PASCAL next Thursday!

For the second part of this hardware challenge, we will be taking an indepth look at the device ROM and MCU. We will be using the MiniPro chip reader, and again working with TTL converters.

END NOTE

Hack2Learn is a bi-monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to various types of reverse engineering and binary challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!

For the next several Hack2Learn workshops, we will be taking a crack at Assembly-focused CTF (Capture The Flag) and reversing challenges, specifically microcorruption. MrDe4d will start by giving a short presentation on a particular aspect of the theory behind ASM (last time we talked about ISRs in MSP430 MCUs). The goal of the presentation prior to the challenge is to (hopefully) help everyone in attendance to gain theoretical as well as practical knowledge.
Being able to gain control of system memory is a powerful skill, and is a gateway to understanding memory structure, how data is accessed and processed, how the OS, CPU and programs interface with one another and ultimately how to pwn. Throughout the series we will cover basic syntax, instructions, conditions, and more! As we dive deeper into each aspect of the challenges, we will continue to reiterate what has been covered with Assembly- we expect questions to be frequent and recurring. It is absolutely OK to ask the same thing more than once; PASCAL Hack2Learn is a friendly learning environment!
H2L has two major goals: for everyone to capture the flags, and to learn to reverse. This is not a workshop focused on learning a tool (though we do use Cutter), rather it is designed to get attendees thinking logically, critically & to get everyone accustomed to being uncomfortable and not knowing the answer.
As we will be focusing on microcorruption CTF challenges for the next several workshops, it is not necessary to have Cutter or any other debugger installed. Microcorruption has its own web based debugger that is very easy to learn and use!

Questions? Email [masked] or get on the PASCAL Discord and interact with other PDX hackers (ask for invite).

Hack2Learn: Hackers, Assemble! (Part 2)

Hack2Learn is a bi-monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to all the various types of challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!

For the next few Hack2Learn workshops, we will be taking a crack at Assembly-focused CTF (Capture The Flag) and reversing challenges. MrDe4d will be walking everyone through these challenges, step by step (pun!) so that everyone in attendance will gain theoretical as well as applicable knowledge.
Being able to gain control of system memory is a powerful skill, and is a gateway to understanding memory structure, how data is accessed and processed, how the OS, CPU and programs interface with one another and ultimately how to pwn. A lot of people find Assembly intimidating..and while it may seem daunting and complicated at first glance but, as with any programming language, a grasp of logic as well as dedication to learning are all that are required. In addition to walking you through every step in each challenge, a relatively quick
intro to Assembly will be given, hopefully demystifying it a bit for everyone. MrDe4d will cover basic syntax, instructions and conditions. As we dive deeper into each aspect of the challenges, we will continue to reiterate what has been covered with Assembly- we expect questions to be frequent and recurring. It is absolutely OK to ask the same thing more than once; PASCAL Hack2Learn is a friendly learning environment!

This is not a workshop focused on learning a tool (though we do use Cutter often), rather it is designed to get attendees thinking logically, critically & to get everyone accustomed to being uncomfortable and not knowing the answer.
In order to participate, attendees will need a computer and an install of Cutter 1.7.4 (a Radare2 GUI that can be used with Linux, Windows or Mac).

Note: Running Linux is not absolutely necessary when using Cutter. Both Windows and Mac are suitable and Cutter will run fine. Cutter still definitely has a learning curve to it.. the tutorial/intro on Megabeets.net is recommended.

Hack2Learn is a monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to all the various types of challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this workshop at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!
For the October edition of Hack2Learn, we will be focusing on web and binary challenges. First we will make sure everyone is set up with a virtual machine and the OS of their choice (though Kali is recommended, specifically for the web challenges). For the binary challenges we will install Cutter which is something of an intro to Radare2. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with Cutter and R2 prior to the workshop; take a look--> https://github.com/radareorg/cutter (note: downloading a VM and/or installing a new OS is not necessary for using Cutter when working on the binary challenges, unless you're using Mac OS in which case you will need to spin up a VM for either Windows or Linux).
Basic understanding of at least one programming language and/or security concepts is helpful, but not necessary. Honestly, when we say all you need is a desire to learn, we mean it!
Cylon is setting up a wireless hacking station for October H2L as well, and will be offering some hands-on experience to anyone interested in the wonderful world of wireless hax!
If you have a laptop, bring it. We have a handful of loaners for those who need them, as well as a few desktop PCs for use at the hackerspace. So, brush off your social anxiety, leave your impostor syndrome at the door, and let your inner hacker take a crack at capture the flag!

Questions? Send an email to [masked], or leave a comment on the meetup page (though we tend to not check that as often.)

Add Augmented Reality to your design portfolio in 2019
52 Limited

Description

Worldwide, there are now over a billion mobile devices with augmented reality capabilities. Augmented reality (AR) apps let people see and interact with digital content in their physical reality. Apple, Facebook, and Snapchat have pioneered early techniques and technologies to insert digital images (and interactions) on top of real-world objects, but the possibilities of these channels remain relatively unexplored.

We’re at an inflection point for user experience and interaction design. Whether or not we’ve planned for it, we’re all 3D designers now. It’s the perfect time to extend your design skills into this new reality.

Jessica Outlaw of The Extended Mind, in partnership with Torch AR is offering a half-day workshop for designers and design producers. In this hands-on training, you will develop an understanding of immersive tech, interaction design in 3D space, and existing AR use cases. During the workshop, you’ll concept, plan, and build your own AR experience prototype.

*No augmented reality experience or coding is needed. Space is limited. Details:

Welcome 8:30 AM Workshop 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Part 1: The state of the immersive technology today. You will demo mobile AR technology and learn about the range of use cases.

Part 2: Techniques for AR interaction design. We will compare and contrast 2D & 3D design patterns.

Part 3: Designing with Mobile AR. You will design and develop an interactive AR experience prototype for your portfolio.

Building the Accessibility Roadmap
52Ltd.

I know, I know. Accessibility seems like a thing that we should do... but it's sometimes uncomfortable to talk about and it feels like there aren't that many people who need it anyway... right?

Wrong. About 1 in 5 Americans reports that they have some kind of disability - from hearing impairment, vision impairment, mobility issues to mental disabilities and more. What does this mean for you and your company? It means that if you're not creating sites, services, and products with this group of people in mind, you're letting go of a multi-billion dollar market share. It also means that you're missing opportunities to be innovative leaders in your space. It also - finally - means that you're about to be breaking the law. Did you know that companies like Target and Netflix have been successfully (and expensively) sued for failure to create and maintain accessible sites? Well, they have. And we don't want that for you.

We're putting on a seriously hands-on workshop to help people from all ends of all companies think about this topic. Building the Accessibility Roadmap is a hands-on workshop. It is not a panel, or a lecture, or a networking schmooze event. You will leave with a real plan that you can implement. If you, your department, or company is ready to start thinking about the "accessibility question" - whether because it's the right thing to do or because it's the law - this workshop is designed to take you through our proprietary tool and roadmap system that points the way forward. You'll leave with actionable tasks, not just ideas or theory.

When: Tues. Aug 4th at 6-8:30pm Where: 52 LTD Who: Anyone interested in learning more about actionable accessibility

If you're ready to start planning AND doing, this workshop is for you. We'll cover a bit about the law, but the workshop is really geared toward helping you develop a real plan and approach for creating your company's accessibility roadmap.

Apps for Good
ADX

This month we'll hear from several local orgs using apps to help meet their mission. During this facilitated panel discussion, staff from Know Your City, RACC, and Oregon Nikkei Endowment and their app developers will chat about the development process, successes, and pitfalls.

Celebrate Portland and come prepared--download these awesome free apps:

• Know Your CityPDX Social History

• Regional Arts & Culture CouncilPublic Art PDX

• Oregon Nikkei EndowmentJapanTown PDX

Know Your City is a nonprofit organization that connects people to place. To fulfill our mission, we organize tours, lectures, publications and youth programs. Our programs engage the public through experiential learning, creative placemaking, policy-making and culture. More online at: knowyourcity.org.


The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) provides grants for artists, organizations and schools; manages an internationally acclaimed public art program; raises money for the arts through workplace giving; provides workshops and technical assistance for artists; and oversees a program to integrate arts into the curriculum in public schools.

To create a new form of access for the public art collections RACC manages for the City and County we partnered with Elsewise Media’s Matt Blair who was introduced to us through the City’s “CivicApps” program.  Matt’s wonderful Public Art PDX app for the iPhone is powered by the Filemaker database that RACC’s Public Art Collections Department constructed and maintains.

The mission of the Oregon Nikkei Endowment is to preserve and honor the history and culture of Japanese Americans in the Pacific Northwest, to educate the public about the Japanese American experience during World War II, and to advocate for the protection of civil rights for all Americans. Japantown PDX is a GPS-enabled app which guides users on a walking tour beyond the walls of our museum, the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center located in Portland’s historic Old Town neighborhood, and into the heart of the city’s pre and post-war Japanese American community.

GammaPoint is a the Portland based mobile app development company. GammaPoint’s expertise lies in creating navigation apps. GammaPoint has also created a web based platform App4Tour.com where anyone who is interested in creating a field tour or city tour guide app can sign up  and submit the content to create a native customized geo-locations based app without any knowledge of computer programming. Japantown PDX app was a pilot project between UofPortland students, Oregon Nikkei and GammaPoint. With its expertise in navigation apps, GammaPoint created a geo-aware app for Oregon Nikkei and also was able to test their App4Tour.com beta platform.  Explore Portland Oregon’s historic Japantown with this user-friendly walking tour app. Also check out some of the other popular apps from GammaPoint such as Extra Mile and WeatherRun.


Matt Blair creates apps and websites that enrich our connections to culture, place, and each other. He led development of iOS apps that were selected by Apple for their iPad Apps of the Year collections in 2012 and 2013, and also designed and built a poetry editor for iPad called Line & Verse. His Portland-based work includes projects around heritage trees, public art, history, and poetry boxes. All four of these projects aspire to use technology to encourage the exploration of the real world.

Presenters

Todd Mayberry currently serves as the director of collections and exhibits at the Oregon Nikkei Endowment. He has fourteen years of experience in the cultural sector having worked at Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Washington, Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, Minnesota Historical Society and Walker Art Center.


Teena Jain is the co-founder of GammaPoint. She has over 18 years of software development experience. She has been working in mobile apps industry long before the apps became household name. Teena has worked for PalmSource and many startups before venturing out for entrepreneurship. She also brings UI/UX experience to GammaPoint team.


Marc Moscato is responsible for directing the organization, managing program committees and guiding the organization’s mission. Previous to KYC, he has worked for Museum of Contemporary Craft, City Club of Portland, Microcosm Publishing, Peripheral Produce and Squeaky Wheel. He received his MS in Arts & Administration from University of Oregon.

Keith Lachowicz and his team oversee a collection of 1900 artworks—everything from small prints and drawings to 170+ large scale outdoor sculptures. As technology expands to provide new ways to interact with art collections, museum and public art professionals have become the on-point staff for gathering, organizing and supplying the data that search and access applications are constructed with.

Matt Blair has been a technology consultant for seventeen years. When not staring at screens, he spends his time reading old books on paper, and stomping through the mud in Forest Park. He is also a volunteer writing workshop facilitator for Write Around Portland, and joined their board in 2013.

Dorkbot Workshop -- PCB Layout Using EAGLE
ADX

Cost: FREE

No RSVP required. Just drop in.

Description: We all love circuits with blinky lights that make strange noises, but imagine how much cooler your circuits would look on a custom-designed and manufactured circuit board. It's easier than it may seem, and we're going to show you how it's down. Using the free version of EAGLE PCB you can design your own circuit boards in a format that is then easy to have fabricated.

This is an introductory course on using EAGLE to design printed circuit boards for fabrication. It's aimed at beginners that may have breadboarded some electronics, and now want to make a final circuit board. We'll design a simple circuit, draw out the schematic, and lay out a board.

Bring a computer: Mac, Linux, or Windows. Please download and install Eagle beforehand from http://www.cadsoftusa.com/downloads/

Laen, the ever dedicated Dorkbotter behind the DorkbotPDX group PCB order, will be showing you all of the necessary ins and outs so that you, too, can make your very own printed circuit boards.
