TiE Oregon presents Software & Internet SIG - Business Platforms for Apps
Monsoon Software

If you are on Facebook playing Texas Hold'Em, added LinkedIn applications leveraging your connections, or reviewed sales, marketing, HR or other applications at, AppExchange, you are already in touch with the evolving world of Application Integration Platforms which have opened up new software opportunities for business and monetization.

Come join us for an overview of these Business Platforms, contribute to the discussion and learn:

  • How are they different from other services such as Google App Engine and Amazon EC2?
  • How does an application plug into these platforms?
  • What data do they make available to application developers?
  • What are the success and failure factors for such applications and business models?

TAO QA & DEV Forum Event: Mobile Development and Testing in the Real World
Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub

QA and Dev Forum Event: Mobile Development and Testing in the Real World

Over the past few years the number of mobile applications has exploded. What started as a way to deliver phone-based games and utilities has become a means to extend the functionality of phones and similar mobile devices. Corporations are now leveraging these applications to extend their products and services, retailers are deploying them as mobile point of sale devices and new companies, products and services are forming to deliver offerings in the mobile application space.

On Wednesday evening, October 17, the Development and Quality Assurance forums at the Technology Association of Oregon are presenting a panel discussion on building and testing mobile applications. Whether you’re currently building mobile applications, are planning to build them or just curious about building them, this discussion is intended to provide lessons learned from real-world experiences. The panel members represent mobile application development and testing in a variety of domains from extending corporate websites to back-end transaction processing to apps for sale on the market places.

FutureTalk with Sandi Metz
New Relic

An exploration of the purpose of rules ...

We're iconoclasts who reject arbitrary constraints yet long for understandable, predictable, changeable applications. We want code that follows rules yet we refuse to let rules to get in our way. We're deeply attached to the little rules that help get things done (No trailing whitespace! Indent using two spaces!) and despise the big, complicated ones that impose one-size-fits-all straitjackets on otherwise sane programming problems.

This talk proposes 5 'little' rules for writing object-oriented code. These rules are determinedly simple yet produce code that experts love and novices can be trusted to change; they fill the space between anarchy and order with practical, common sense. The rules guide without impeding, help without hindering and constrain without binding, and let you create applications that are easy to change and fun to work their whole life long.

This is the 4th event in a series of free monthly FutureTalks from disruptive Developers, innovative Technologists and world-changing Creatives. Doors open at 5:30p for food, drinks and networking. The presentation will begin right at 6p.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Sandi Metz is a programmer. In the past 30+ years she has written innumerable applications, many of which are still running today. Dealing with long lived applications has left her deeply biased towards practical solutions that produce working software that is easy to change. She is also someone who explains things, but has difficulty speaking without drawing on the whiteboard and feels inarticulate unless the conversation includes at least three colors. She believes in simplicity; simple code, and straightforward explanations, and strives for it in her code and in her writing.

FutureTalk with Ward Cunningham
New Relic

Wiki's Song of Code and Content

Agile programming and Wiki hypertext emerged together out of a single vision of completing each other's work. Twenty years later we see opportunity to direct this collaboration toward more difficult problems. This is not your father's wiki. We reexamine fundamental questions about what it means to write and to program. Then we show how Federated Wiki uses both to make a better world.

This is the 5th event in a series of free monthly FutureTalks from disruptive Developers, innovative Technologists and world-changing Creatives. Doors open at 5:30p for food, drinks and networking. The presentation will begin right at 6p.

Ward Cunningham has worked for and consulted to daring startups and huge corporations. He has served as CTO, Director, Fellow, Principle Engineer and Inventor. He is best known for creating wiki. He leads an open-source project rebuilding wiki to solve more complex sharing situations addressing some of societies toughest problems. Ward founded movements in object-oriented, agile software, extreme programming and pattern languages. Ward lives in Portland, Oregon and works for New Relic, Inc.

AT&T Art+Tech Hackathon - Seattle
through Ratio HQ

Love building apps? Seattle, just a 3 hr drive away? Come explore the intersection of art, technology, and nature at the first Art & Technology hackathon for Bees in Seattle! In this 24-hour event, we'll join creative artists with developers and beekeepers to create new interactive artworks that matter. The goal of the weekend is to create artwork related to Flight Path Bee Project that will hopefully be considered for our very own Seatac Airport!

Show off your skills, get some great networking in, be fed, and possibly win some prizes too.

(comment: does some want to start a calagator for Seattle?

New Ways to Deploy and Manage Applications at Scale

Alex Crawford, software developer at CoreOS

The last decade belonged to virtual machines and the next one belongs to containers. CoreOS is a new Linux distribution designed specifically for application containers and running them at scale. This talk will examine all the major components of CoreOS (etcd, fleet, docker, systemd) and how these components work together.

7:15 pm

Protecting Laptops Against High-Level Adversaries

Matthew Garrett, principal security software engineer at CoreOS

You’ve left your laptop in your hotel room. You come back, turn it on and type in your disk encryption passphrase. And, just like that, you've granted access to all your private data to the person who slipped in with a USB stick while you were out.

This isn't a hypothetical case. We've seen companies selling tools that are intended to bypass disk encryption by simply modifying the boot process and waiting for the user to type in their decryption key. It's a worrying situation, but it's one that we can protect users against.

This presentation will describe how some of the same techniques used to protect servers can be used to verify the state of laptops. It'll demonstrate the use of a novel but straightforward piece of software that allows users to use widely deployed hardware to let users check the security of their system at a glance. And it'll talk about why you still need to be afraid of a smaller set of really scary people.

Libre Application Summit presented by GNOME (LAS GNOME)
through Eliot Center (First Unitarian Church)

LAS GNOME is the first U.S. based conference for GNOME, the free software desktop. This conference focuses on the Linux application story bringing in people from all across the Linux eco-system to build a powerful platform to design applications for the Web and Linux platform on all devices.

This conference for you if you want to learn how to write ubiquitous apps that will work on any Linux distribution, contribute to a new application distribution model that puts control back on the developer instead of the OSV, and finally improve the general tooling on the Linux platform with the kind of tools that you would find on OSX and Windows.

Registration is free, although we ask for a reasonable donation. We have some amazing and well known speakers including Matthew Garrett , Alexander Larsson, creator of Flatpak, and Matt Dalio, CEO of Endless.

Bring your Linux applications and we will help you flatpak them so they run anywhere!

Help us expand the market for Linux applications, and build the kind of eco-system that will support entrepreneurs build new products based on Linux platform.

In addition, many core members of the GNOME project will be there, including the maintainer of GTK+, the creator of Flatpak, and the co-creator of the GNOME Project!
