Ecotrust (Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center)

Monthly meeting of the Portland open source GIS group. Projects big and small are usually presented monthly along with rousing conversation and discussion. All are welcome, no need to RSVP - our group ranges from the geo-curious to the überhackers so bring your ideas and questions!

This month's agenda: exciting happenings in geodata, a recap of summer events and FOSS4G highlights. Special guest Ricardo Morin will talk about "Highlighting Oregon’s WildLands" (HOWL), a recap of his presentation in Boston. More information at Ricardo's blog here: http://blog.rikitraki.com/FOSS4G-update/ and in the full abstract below [1].

In addition, bring your own geo-show and tell, and come ready to share info on any fall geo-happenings that are on the horizon!

Our mailing list is here drop us a line with any questions: http://groups.google.com/group/pdx-osgeo

[1] HOWL: 3D/4D mapping and visualization of Oregon’s wildlands

The HOWL (Highlighting Oregon's WildLands) project aims to create an interactive 3D/4D mapping and visualization tool for presenting spatio-temporal information relevant to the preservation of wilderness and wildlife protection in Oregon. HOWL will be available to conservation advocates (e.g., Oregon Wild) and the general public, to improve dissemination, understanding and interpretation of multiple publicly available data sources. Candidate data sets include boundaries of current and proposed wilderness areas, wild and scenic river areas, national forests and other public lands, wildfire events, wildlife migrations, deforestation history, and satellite imagery, to name a few.

HOWL is a web application being built using CesiumJS, a powerful open source 3D mapping and visualization library, which enables incorporating not only realistic terrain modeling, but also volumetric symbols to build interactive 3D thematic maps. In addition, HOWL will leverage the temporal visualization capabilities of CesiumJS to add the 4th dimension, thus enabling dynamic playback of related past and/or predicted events. Visualizations examples include wildfire history in old growth forest areas, wildlife migration records, and deforestation chronicles.

This presentation dives into details of building HOWL by leveraging open source front-end components (e.g., CesiumJS, jQuery, Bootstrap), back-end tools (e.g., MapShaper, toGeoJson, TopoJSON, node.js) and workflows for data acquisition, transformation, and integration. The presentation addresses key design decisions, technical challenges and future developments.

TED Tuesdays at The Globe
Globe Bar Cafe

Every Tuesday we show 3 TED Talks on our wall sized screen organized around a common theme.

This weeks theme: The Mind

Gero Miesenboeck reengineers a brain In the quest to map the brain, many scientists have attempted the incredibly daunting task of recording the activity of each neuron. Gero Miesenboeck works backward -- manipulating specific neurons to figure out exactly what they do, through a series of stunning experiments that reengineer the way fruit flies perceive light.

Dan Gilbert asks, Why are we happy? Harvard psychologist Dan Gilbert says our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong -- a premise he supports with intriguing research, and explains in his accessible and unexpectedly engaging talk.

VS Ramachandran on your mind Vilayanur Ramachandran tells us what brain damage can reveal about the connection between celebral tissue and the mind, using three startling delusions as examples.

Westside Proggers - VoteFair ranking: Math-based voting power for the 99%
Tektronix Bldg 38

Just-released open-source software that implements VoteFair ranking is now available to help us reach higher levels of voting fairness. You do voting when you click on Google search results, and you use voting results when you view the star rating of an Amazon product. Now learn how voting really works, how it is usually miscalculated -- intentionally in the case of elections -- and how it can be done to fully extract the wisdom in a group. Learn the math behind the puppet strings that connect politicians to the biggest campaign contributors. (Partial spoiler: The biggest unfairness is hidden in primary elections.) Also learn the math that eventually will cut those puppet strings. Along the way you will learn that there are different kinds of popularity.

Presenter: Richard Fobes, author of The Creative Problem Solver's Toolbox and Ending The Hidden Unfairness In U.S. Elections, developer of the Dashrep programming language and the software negotiation tool at www.NegotiationTool.com.

This event is a meeting of the Westside Proggers, a group of language-agnostic programmers who like to talk about pioneering new frontiers in software.

Please RSVP (and reserve slices of free pizza) at the Westside Proggers forum on Google.

Portland ReactJS meetup
Idealist.org

Greetings fellow Reagents!

We are looking forward to our first official ReactJS user group. Dave and Eric from Idealist.org will be sharing some interesting stuff (details below) with us, and we're hoping to have one additional talk. Please let us know if you're interested in speaking/presenting. We'd like to have at least a few lightning talks as well. I have a feeling this will fill up fast, so please RSVP if you would like to attend this event.

If you are new to our group, Welcome! If you would like to get more involved or hear what we're talking about, we'd like to invite you to join our google group to join the conversations or start a new one. Also, please take a look at our code of conduct which let's you know what we think "being excellent to each other" should look and feel like.

Talks:

Notes on the Design of Components (Dave McCabe)

Dave will discuss what idealist.org has learned about designing React components, specifically techniques for promoting simplicity, reuse, statelessness, and separation of concerns, and for dealing with asynchrony.

Isomorphic Webpack Hot Module Replacement Boilerplate (Eric O'Connell)

  • Do you want to serve fully-rendered HTML from your React application?
  • Do you want near-instant feedback in your browser as soon as you edit your React components?
  • How about CSS?

This talk will give the starting point for a very nice dev environment using the webpack Hot Module Replacement feature. It will include a (trivial) Express app that renders the entire React component hierarchy which will then be hydrated on the client. Variations shown will include serving API requests out of the same app, and shared client/server routing.

TBD / Lightning talks

Get in touch with us if you'd like to share your experiences!

“Reinventing black boxes”

Description: Open source has a long history of reimplementing, and reverse engineering proprietary tools. This talk will integrate the tools needed to reverse engineer into stories of how it has been done before.

Abstract: There is a constant need to provide open source glue, and alternatives to new technology. Learning how to analyze black boxes frees you from having to wait for someone else to do it. When you solve the puzzle yourself you will really understand how it works.

Reverse engineering is a lot like debugging. There are open source full development stacks including debugging for almost every operating system, and architecture. There are a few other tools you need, but with decades of reinvention the toolbox will usually have everything you need.

Since black boxes aren’t documented it’s impossible to know for sure if you will have the skills you need ahead of time. They are puzzles which might be easy, or hard. Chances are you won’t have to go it alone for long as other people, and whole communities often want the same thing that you do.

Bio: Daniel Johnson is a full stack developer who has been programming since 1990, and focused on Open Source technologies since 2003. Jobs have ranged from telephone tech support to systems administration, and freelance software development. He has spent the most time in the last few years working with Rails, AngularJS, Android, and Arduino. He was the first person to document how to use the intel real sense 3d camera with Linux.

Reading through technical books in a group is a great way to learn. You can stay motivated by reading together; better apply what you are reading by actively communicating it, as well as hearing others perspectives that will help you better understand the book. Even if you're a more experienced developer it's a great way to keep your skill sharp and share your wisdom and experience. If none of that is convincing just come and have fun with fellow ruby developers!

Cooperative Workspaces Trending in PDX
Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

Sick of working out of coffee shops but can't afford your own workspace?

We love coffee shops, but let's face it: launching a startup while competing for electrical outlets and trying to block out the din of coffee grinders is not always ideal. Access to a quiet conference room and your very own electrical outlet are just two benefits of a coworking space. Learn about the other benefits, including what's available here in Portland, at our upcoming PubTalk!

Join us for FREE pizza, drinks and a fantastic networking experience + panel.

The Power of Story -- PDX OSGeo monthly meeting
Portland State University Cramer Hall - room 409

This month welcomes Tim Welch and Katie Urey who will be combining two of their favorite things - Stories and Maps. Pizza will be provided. BYOB as always.


The Power of Story

How do you tell a good story with a map? A story that’s memorable, entertaining, and paints a vivid picture that the viewer connects with. We’ll dive into two different scenarios.

Policy Advocacy

Imagine a world with zero traffic-related injuries. That’s what the Portland Vision Zero campaign wants to achieve in the next 10 years with the participation of the City of Portland, Oregon Walks, Bike Portland and other groups. With construction booming in Portland, one of the biggest concerns is construction closures which often bring together vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians in unexpected and unsafe ways. How can we utilize maps to illustrate issues like this, demonstrate alternatives, and advocate for improving policy? This project is seeking collaborators, please reach out to us.

Product Marketing

Good product presentation goes beyond the specs to tell a story that a potential customer can imagine themselves in. We can use maps to play out scenes in the real world where the viewer is the main character. Tim will present an app-based approach that’s part movie and part presentation that can be used for anything from elevator pitches to digital displays -- Toolbox: React, Mapbox GL+Studio, Turf, QGIS, OpenStreetMap, and Electron.

Presenters

Tim Welch -- @tdoubleuu, freelance web developer connecting the dots -- http://dotsconnect.us

Katie Urey -- @rbracket, GIS Geek, advocate for safe walking

Hack the Dot: PDX Startup Week
Vacasa

A Hack the Dot is a two-hour hackathon where coding school students, junior developers, experienced developers, marketers, designers and curious web people come together to build ideas around a domain name. Our events are meant to be a quick and fun way to build a humorous (and functional) product quickly while meeting people in your tech/startup community.

There will be pizza. And beer.

What to Bring / How to Prepare: • Bring your laptop (fully charged). Bring your charger just in case. • Install the Atom text editor. Go here: https://atom.io/ • Setup a github.com account

How does it work? Step 1: Attendees are broken up into random teams and assigned spirit animals to guide their efforts. Step 2: The teams are provided with the same undisclosed domain name by Name.com, arbitrary and often hilarious. Step 3: Teams have just two hours to come up with a functioning site inspired by that domain. The team builds the most creative and fun idea for the domain wins.

Participants will be judged on four criteria: (1) functionality, (2) design, (3) humor, and (4) creative domain name interpretation.

What do you get at the event? FOOD! SWAG! FRIENDS!

How much does it cost? It’s FREE!

Questions? Send them to HacktheDot at name.com.
