Peer Pressure: A Peer Coaching Event
Virtual Zoom Webinar

Looking to meet new professional contacts but want to skip the small talk? Interested in getting help in facing work challenges head on? Ready to learn the best way to have positive and supportive professional relationships to become a better leader?

Welcome to the power of peer coaching.

Peer coaching is awesome! It's a mutually supportive, powerful form of learning and development where peers work together to reflect, share ideas, teach one another, or solve problems in the workplace through deep inquiry, accountability, direct feedback, and encouragement.

Peer coaching also helps build emotional intelligence, which is indispensable when stepping into leadership positions. The best leaders take the time to learn and practice skills like active listening, empathy, open communication and effective feedback, which can all be learned through practicing successful peer coaching relationships.

Join StartOut for a 1-hour peer coaching event where attendees will:

Learn basic peer coaching strategies like active listening, asking open questions and giving/getting effective feedback Get matched with 3 new people and meet 1:1 together for 15 minute breakout sessions Get to know each other by sharing your story with conversation prompts, practice your new peer coaching strategies, and create meaningful connections Have the opportunity to stay in touch and continue supporting your new contacts throughout the year

About the host:

Introduction to Stop Motion Animation

Stop motion animation is a fun and versatile medium that can be found in music videos, feature films, advertising, and instagram videos. The possibilities are endless. It is also a painstaking medium, with few shortcuts, that requires a lot of patience. With so many other options (live action, CG, digital animation) that are faster and cheaper, why is stop motion still around? Why do we still love it so much? In this intro to stop motion workshop, we’ll be talking about the appeal of stop motion through examples, followed by a demonstration of techniques you could use at home. This class will be taught by freelance stop-motion animator, Aarica North.

Our Committee will review the applications and select six finalists (and two back-ups) to present on stage. We pair each of the finalists with a team of TiE Charter Members for coaching and mentoring in the run-up to the Pitch Competition. While using this resource isn’t mandatory, we have found that the most successful companies engage with and use the feedback from their “champions.”

Public Tech Talk: "Security-Aware Cyber-Physical Systems with Varying Levels of Autonomy" by Dr. Miroslav Pajic
This talk will be live-streamed and is open to the public. To receive Zoom meeting information, send an email request to: [email protected]

Increasing set of functionalities, network interoperability, and system design complexity have introduced easily exploitable security vulnerabilities in cyber-physical systems (CPS). Furthermore, the tight interaction between information technology and physical world, as well as the rising levels of autonomy, make these systems vulnerable to attacks beyond the standard cyber-attacks; relying exclusively on conventional security techniques may be unfeasible due to resource-constraints and long system lifetime. Consequently, there is a need to change the way we reason about security in CPS, and start designing platform-aware attack-resilient components and architectures capable providing strong safety and performance guarantees even under attack. In this talk, I will present research challenges and our recent efforts in this domain, starting from cyber-physical security techniques that (a) capture effects of attacks on system performance, (b) introduce attack-resilience into components at each level of the autonomy stack, and (c) enable mapping of the desired Quality-of-Control (QoC) under attack guarantees into real-time platform requirements in way that supports design-time tradeoffs between the QoC under attack and security-related overhead. For systems with varying levels of autonomy and human interaction, I will also show how we can exploit human power of inductive reasoning and the ability to provide context, to improve the overall security guarantees. Finally, I will present how we can capture security-related CPS specification as hyperproperties, and introduce statistical model checking methods to check such specifications.

OWASP PDX - Yes, You Too Can Break Crypto: Exploiting Common Crypto Mistakes
Zoom Online - See link at Meetup page

Abstract Cryptography is tricky. Sure, everybody knows not to roll out their own crypto, but is it enough? Are the standard algorithms, libraries, and utilities always used the right way? This is of course a rhetorical question! Humans keep making mistakes that other humans can exploit, and Murphy’s law continues to prove true: “If there is a wrong way to do something, then someone will do it.” In this talk, not only will we discuss what can go wrong, but also how attackers could take advantage of that. Insufficient entropy? Static initialization vector? Key reuse in stream cipher? Lack of ciphertext integrity? We’ve heard these terms and may be familiar with them in theory, but let’s see actual examples of these and other crypto mistakes and corresponding exploits, and understand how they could lead to real life problems. Are you not on an offensive team and not interested in exploitation? Then this talk is for you too! Come and learn how to avoid common crypto mistakes in your code!

Bio Alexei began his career as a software developer. A decade later, he realized that breaking code was way more fun than writing code, and decided to switch direction. He is now a full-time application security professional, with several years of assisting various development teams in delivering secure code, as well as security consulting. He holds OSCP and CISSP, and currently works as a lead product security engineer for Salesforce.

Mob the Docs! A radical exercise in collaboration during a time of separation
Online

Joint Meetup with the Agile Mob Programming Workshop and Write the Docs

Mob programming is a collaborative way to leverage the strength of the collective developers to solve problems and produce code with results that can be greater than the work of the individual participants alone. But can mobbing work for tech writers? Join us in this social experiment to apply mob programming principles to writing documentation.

Mobbing works on the constraints created by the group. For this joint meetup, participants will be 100% remote.To join the meetup, please RSVP at Meetup link, and we’ll post a meeting link here on the day of the event.

As a group, we will be presented with a writing challenge. With these constraints, and any further agreements we make, we’ll use collaborative online tools to explore the benefits and challenges of docs mobbing.

Sunshine Workshop / Transparency Tool Teach-in
Northwest Academy 1208 SW 13th Ave, 2nd floor Portland, OR

Sunshine Week is a national initiative started in 2005 by the American Society of News Editors. It was established with the goal of bringing awareness to the public about government transparency and freedom of information. The week coincides with the birthday of James Madison, who was a key proponent of the Bill of Rights and of governmental checks and balances. He was born on March 16th, and this year, Sunshine Week takes place March 15 - 21.

Robin Ryan will join us this month to share ways to find hard-to-reach data about our government. She'll lead a workshop that guides us through a series of websites and other resources that reveal details that can help us shine light onto our government and keep it accountable.

This event will be a hands-on workshop, so please bring a laptop or tablet along with your ideas and questions!

We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions 6:15 PM: Presentation

Speaker bio:

Robin Ryan identifies as an investigative reporter and radio journalist focused on issues of social and economic justice. The Transparency Tool Teach-in is a workshop inspired by Sunshine Week, an annual convergence held to promote transparency and accountability in American government. The program is designed to show people how to navigate data-driven websites containing information on everything from money in politics to governmental spending from the hyper-local to the federal level. In the age of fake news, one immediate route to reliability means taking an active role in getting information unfiltered by editorial review.
