(Unconference) Evolving Virtual Teams
Multnomah Athletic Club (MAC)

Generally acknowledged best practices for software development strongly favor co-location, but with mergers, acquisitions, outsourcing, and off-shoring the co-located team is becoming an endangered species. Teams now are commonly project-based and geographically distributed. How can we work effectively with team members in different physical locations?

Learn from key open source leaders that with the help of virtual teams produce some of the highest quality, most widely used software today. Come prepared to speak your mind, share your experience, listen and learn about working in a virtual team. If you are involved anywhere in the software development lifecycle, this event is for you.

What is an Unconference?

An Unconference is the inverse of a conference, in that there’s no predetermined, pre-set schedule, agenda, or speaker lineup. Utilizing the concept of OpenSpace, this unconference is the coming together of participants, with no predetermined agenda or program, to have an open discussion and share insight in a place where experts and beginners are equal. You won't be lectured at, rather you'll leave with a better understanding of a topic and the satisfaction of being heard outside Q&A time.

The OpenSpace methodology is carefully designed to elicit maximum involvement and creativity in a constructive atmosphere. It is also highly flexible so that the content is entirely determined by you -- the participants. This is not to suggest that the conference will not have content or outcomes, for there certainly will be both. Achievement in the meeting will be totally dependent upon individual and collective responsibility to make it happen. The content is what each person shares, and the outcome is what we will all create. The event will be inventive, creative, productive and full of surprises.

Capacity: 160 attendees

Audience: From executives whom are concerned with productivity, quality and cost management to product owners, analysts, developers, designers, and testers all who are attempting to share a single thought and build upon it.

Sysadmin and Developer Tools and Tricks Swap
Side Door

This is a meetup that was inspired by the Tool Swap at BarCamp Portland. The idea is to sit down and share your favorite tools and tricks, maybe that is a plugin for git, maybe it is a hot key you couldn't live without in bash, maybe it is a feature of your editor.

This is the first one to gauge interest and if people like it we could start doing it each second Thursday.

This meeting is set at the same venue, during SEPoCoNi (Southeast Portland Coders' Night). We've spoken about themed SEPoCoNi meetups so lets try one.

Portland WordPress-Dev Meetup: Vagrant, Your New Best Friend
Lincoln Building

Jeremy Felt will be talking about Vagrant at our next meetup:

Development environments are not often one size fits all. While having a LAMP stack available on your local machine is great, having access to the many variants in the wild is better. Working with many variants and being able to sandbox them away from your operating system is the best.

In this session, we'll show you how to replace common development environments like MAMP or XAMPP with the much more versatile Vagrant. You'll gain access to a world of various development options while simultaneously keeping your computer clean. When you walk out the door, you'll have a wonderful local WordPress development environment running nginx, mysql, php-fpm and memcached -- or anything else you want -- so that you can better develop for the technology in use on the web today.

And don't worry, this session is operating system agnostic - Mac OS X, Windows and Linux can all be friends with Vagrant.

Quality Enablement through Agile Testing
Microsoft Portland Office (Pearl District)

Producing high quality software, closely aligned with the constantly changing requirements of business stakeholders is more important than ever. Especially in an Agile development setting, every team member has to ensure that their work is of the highest quality – all the time. Testers can verify quality but not ensure it – proper QA procedures and a quality mindset are essential for high performance development teams.

During this event, your local Microsoft Developer Technology Specialist will provide you an inside look at Black Box Testing, show you the capabilities of Microsoft Test Manager, and address the Developer’s experience in quality enablement through white box testing. Furthermore, we’ll cover how quality is an accountability and addressable by the entire development organization.

You’ll also have an opportunity to learn the value of Build, Deploy, Test, and Lab Management from our ALM Partner, Crosslake Technologies, and gain exposure to enterprise cloud based cross platform application testing with Perfecto Mobile. We look forwarding to seeing you there!

PSU-TAO Cleanweb Hack (updated)
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

If you haven't already signed up for the Hack tomorrow at PSU, we hope some details included here will entice you. To prepare our participants for a fun and productive day, below are details and resources for the Hack.

Goals: To generate ideas are innovative to solving environmental and sustainability, social equity issues through utilization of software and mobile apps. Don’t forget to have some fun.

Idea Generation: To start, you should ask the following questions: 1) What issues you and your team would like to tackle? (ie. carbon emissions reduction by buildings or vehicles, solar potential identifier, change of personal habits, e-waste tracking, etc.) 2) What do other similar applications exist on the market? Sometimes, building on existing apps can resolve a more refined product. 3) What is the marketability? Is it scalable?

The best project ideas are one that you are passionate about, and have some components of competition and linkage to social media.

Finding Data: While you are brainstorming ideas, you should also consider data availability as well. It is not the end of the world if you don’t have data sets or APIs to mock up a prototype. Simply build your own datasets, even if just a few that are enough for you to test out your product.

See the Cleanweb Hack resource guide for APIs, data sets, sample projects and project ideas. (http://tinyurl.com/m7a744e)

Judging Criteria: At the end of day, your prototype will be scored on these criteria: 1) Impact on resource and sustainability issues 2) Design and usability of prototype 3) Feasibility and marketability 4) Good use of datasets and APIs

Prizes: 1st Place - $500, 2nd Place - $250

Bragging right is priceless.

Our judges are looking forward to your innovations!

Winston Saunders, Director of Data Center Security Initiatives at Intel Chris Harder, Division Manager at the Portland Development Commission (PDC) Skip Newberry, President at the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO)

Questions? Ask us on Twitter (@cleanwebPDX), Facebook or via email [email protected]

There will be food, drink and good companies. Come out to have some fun!


What is Cleanweb? Cleanweb is a meme, a movement, a market that individuals/organizations are leveraging information technologies to address the world's critical resource challenges.

Popular topics include social cartography, software and hardware, context awareness, mobile development, humanitarian mapping efforts, food webs and local food transparency, transit, psychogeography, geo games, paper maps, and place hacking.

WhereCamp is an unconference, which means it has little to no pre-selected content. Instead, the content is provided by the participants once they arrive. Everyone gathers in the morning to propose sessions and schedule them in blocks throughout the day. Sessions take many forms, from prepared talks to open discussions to running around outside with balloons. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. The result is a fun event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

Keynote Speaker: Matthew Freid

Matthew Freid manages the Corporate GIS Program in the Bureau of Technology Services at the City of Portland. The CGIS Program provides a central repository of GIS data that is available to internal customers and external access through Portlandmaps.com. Matt will be speaking on the following topics:

Background on City of Portland Open Data efforts
What the city has been working on for the new version of Portland maps.
How the city uses API’s to access spatial and tabular data and how developers could use them as well

Google Development Group (GDG) PDX Meetup - All About Kotlin
eBay Community Lounge

This month we're going to discuss Kotlin! If you haven't heard of Kotlin, it's a new language created by JetBrains (the people behind the people behind Android Studio). Kotlin is 100% compatible with java and android, and can be used in existing android projects mixed with java classes. There is incredible IDE support and the language itself is very modern, borrowing many concepts from functional languages such as Scala, but being much more accessible to java developers.

We will have a presentation about Kotlin basics and I encourage you to bring laptops to play with it as we will reserve some time for group work where we all play with the language together.

If you want to participate in that portion of the meetup, please have Android Studio installed along with the Kotlin plugin.

Details of Kotlin can be found at:

http://kotlinlang.org/

As always, excellent food and drink will be provided by our generous sponsor, eBay

Failures Before Successes
New Relic

Entrepreneurs are born from all walks of life, but they are forged into great leaders in the fire of execution and error. Their trials and tribulations cause setbacks and sometimes lead to the end of a company, but those who can recover are better for it. In the entrepreneurial world, broken bones heal much stronger and scars carry valuable lessons. We have gathered a group of successful entrepreneurs who will be sharing some of their stories of strife, how they overcame and were better for it.

Join us as we partner with New Relic for their FutureTalks on July 11th. Tyler Phillipi will moderate a panel of seasoned entrepreneurs as they share their stories of learning lessons and success in the Portland tech community.

Refactoring for Asynchronous Execution on Mobile Devices
CENTRL Office

To improve responsiveness, developers often use asynchronous programming architecture. In the post-PC era, asynchronous programming is even more in demand because mobile and wearable devices have limited resources and access the network excessively. One current development task is refactoring long-running, blocking synchronous code (for example, accessing the Web, a cloud, a database, or a file system) into nonblocking asynchronous code. Danny will guide us through the challenges of retrofitting code from synchronous to asynchronous while presenting program analyses as well as showcasing a growing, practical tool set for this process.

  • Speaker - Danny Dig, Assistant Professor in the School of EECS at Oregon State University & Adjunct Professor at University of Illinois

Registration options include online (12:00pm - 1:00pm) or in-person (11:30am - 1:00pm)

Open Source Bridge 2017
through Eliot Center (First Unitarian Church)

Open Source Bridge is an open source developer and maker conference, focused on bringing people from a range of technology backgrounds together to share our knowledge and explore what it means to be an open source citizen.

For our 9th year, we’re changing things up a little, given the political, cultural, and economic crossroads we find ourselves at right now. We’ve added a new track to explore how activists are using technology, how open source communities are supporting activists, and how other open source and activist communities intersect. To encourage new connections, we’re also holding a project night in the Hacker Lounge to partner with community groups and individual projects looking for new contributors and adding a Community Organizer track to our Friday Unconference day.

2017 keynotes

  • Nicole Sanchez (VP of Social Impact @ GitHub)
  • Emily Gorcenski (Senior Data Scientist @ Simple)
  • Walé Ogundipé (Software Engineer @ Avvo)
