A unique, free workshop geared at teaching sound synthesis fundamentals as explored and demonstrated through Pure Data.

Fascinated by orgies of towering analog synthesizes from the 60s? Mesmerized by how computers can generate sound that offends and elates? In this causal yet intense session, we will cover the basics of audio signal theory while exploring the common techniques and tricks used by sound designers and synth builders.

We will progressively cover theories/techniques from the ground up, so no formal experience is required. We will make some noise.

When?

Where?

Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) Room 205, Portland, OR, US

Participants should bring:

  • A mac/linux/windows laptop with a functioning Pd installation.
  • A basic/rudimentary knowledge of Pd

Backspace

0x07

Dorkbot PDX would like to welcome you to the latest installment of our semi-regular presentation series:

DorkbotPDX 0x07

(zero-based)

When: Monday, December 5th, 2011 - 8pm
Where: Backspace ( map)
Who: All ages -- open to the public
Cost: Free!
What's happening? Three great and inspiring talks regarding art, electronics, computers, physics, and a hybridized mega monster of all things strangely technical. Did we mention 3D bluetooth kittens and RF aardvarks dancing to the synthesizer sounds of the microcontroller apocalypse? Ok, I made that up...or did I?

Art and Electronics: Arcing the Gap

Jesse Mejia

Jesse will present an overview of a few recently completed projects and a few works in progress. His talk emphasizes bridging the gap between artists and pseudo-engineers, and he challenges the community to come up with a proper term for this crossover behavior.

Jesse is an artist and AV nerd represented digitally at anestheticaudio.com.

Getting Started With RF

Ward Ramsdell

Ward presents an overview of several affordable, contemporary wireless devices and demonstrates how they may be easily incorporated with today's microcontrollers. It's off-the-shelf RF demystified, and you too can go wireless with your projects!

Ward Ramsdell is a real engineer who helps takes real products to market.

SPROING!

Simran Gleason

SPROING! is a new web-based word game is like playing boggle in 3D, on platonic solids made of springs, with kittens (& aardvarks).

Simran will show off Sproing & its HTML5 implementation, show the design evolution of the game, and give you the math of spring physics simulations.

There will be a live multiplayer Sproing tournament during the talk, with chocolate at stake for the winner.

Simran Gleason is an artist and a nerd. Usually he makes noise, but sometimes likes to turn physics into games.

OpenDork

You!

An open-mic session for those looking to show off a project, ask a question, solicit help, or incite collaboration.

BYTE ME 2012 - A Showcase of Technological Art
Launch Pad Gallery

2012 is a year filled with anticipation... Will our planet come to a sudden end? Will the world economy crumble? Will Obama get re-elected? Who knows? Does anyone care? BYTE ME, 2012 can take your mind off of all these difficult questions and perhaps even answer some of them for you.

The event showcases installations and artwork by Portland artists Libbey White, Donald Delmar Davis, Jonas Nash, and Cameron Adamez that highlight the use of technology in different ways.

The centerpiece is the world premiere of the installation T,E.D. (Transformations, Emotional Deconstruction), created by Sean Hathaway, with music by Carlos Severe Marcelin. This large work features 80 customized Teddy Ruxpin dolls wired together, delivering real-time emotional content from the internet based on the Emotion Wheel developed by the psychologist Robert Plutchik. The work uses speech engines and lighting to deliver a seamless and continuous conversation between the animated dolls who have had their motherboards replaced by the custom board designed for this piece by the creator. Interactive real-time input can also be done by the audience through text messaging or an on-site TED software application.

BYTE ME 2013 - Annual Exposition of Technological Art
AFRU Gallery

We here at AFRU are gearing up for Byte Me! 2013. It was a great show last year and we hope to make it bigger and better for this year. If you are not familiar with Byte Me! it is our annual exposition of technical art. So, what is ‘Technical Art’ exactly? For the context of Byte Me we are defining it as artwork whose inspiration, medium, design or execution would be prohibitively difficult if not impossible to realize without the aid of or direct incorporation of technology. The goal of this show is to not only exhibit a narrow but emergent sub section of artwork but also to foster a larger and tighter community of geeky-artists and artistic-nerds.

If you're like some Drupal developers or site builders, you've been telling yourself for months that you should start contributing to Drupal core. This sprint is your chance to get started with in-person training and mentoring from friendly, experienced core contributors. It's also a great way to start becoming familiar with Drupal 8.

If you've already started to work on core, come meet other contributors, hang out in person, and work on manageable tasks in the Drupal core queue. The goal is to help you help with core.

FutureTalk with Ariel Waldman + Happy Half-Hour
New Relic

The Hacker's Guide to the Galaxy

› Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Don't panic: the next big science revolution isn't just for asteroid miners or CERN scientists. Just as science fiction has often shown the way to future inventions, the act of hacking is now generating prototypes that act as footholds for future explorations, discoveries and epiphanies in science. From the collisions of subatomic particles to the explosions of supernovas, this presentation takes you on an unusual trip through the weird, whimsical and fun ways to explore the final frontier.

Ariel Waldman is the founder of Spacehack.org, a directory of ways to participate in space exploration, and the global instigator of Science Hack Day, an event that brings together scientists, technologists, designers and people with good ideas to see what they can create in one weekend. She is also a fellow at Institute For The Future.

› Doors will open at 5:30 for a 30-minute networking happy half-hour! The food, beer and drinks are provided by Bellagios and New Relic. The presentation will begin right at 6p.

› Stay tuned for the latest developments and updates on this and upcoming events by joining our Meetup group, New Relic FutureTalks PDX, and following us on Twitter @newrelic.

› FutureTalk is brought to you by New Relic in collaboration with TAO

Alexa Skill Building 101
Taborspace

On Saturday June 4th we bring you the first ever Hackster.io + Amazon Alexa workshop!

Liz Myers, who is a Developer Evangelist at Amazon, will be teaching Alexa Skill Building 101 starting at noon. In this talk, intended for software and hardware developers interested in voice control, home automation, and personal assistant technology, we will walk through the development of a new Alexa skill and incorporate it into a consumer-facing device.

The talk will be followed by lunch and an afternoon of hacking. Finish off the day with dinner and incredible prizes sponsored by Amazon.

Alexa is the speech and personal assistant technology behind Amazon Echo. Today you can use Alexa to listen to music, play games, check traffic and weather, control your household devices such as Philips Hue and Belkin WeMo, and lots more.

Node PDX 2016
through The Bossanova Ballroom

Portland is an awesome place to be a JavaScript hacker.

JavaScript is everywhere. It’s in your browser, on your server, in your phone, on the wire between your devices, and possibly in your thermostat, beer keg, or karaoke system... and it’s only growing from there. We’ve gone from roll-over effects to robots, codeable toys and automated quad-copter drones, all speaking a common language of JSON, often sharing JavaScript code at their core.

Portland is home to some of the most talented developers in the world. We’re not kidding. Our quirky and distinctive town breeds creativity in all things, from the culinary arts and funky brews we’re so famous for to artisanally crafted Python and minimalist-chic of JavaScript micro-libraries. PDX is bursting with artistic craftsmanship unlike anywhere else on the planet.

NodePDX creates a time and a place for this community to share information, discuss ideas, and work together to improve the art and science of hacking.

Hacking Web Stuff with F#
Lucky Labrador Tap Room

Ok, F#ers, got a special guest coming into town that would like to do some web stuff hacking, and thus...

Hacking Web Stuff with F#

In this hands on session, we'll have a look at two F# libraries for doing web stuff, both on the server-side and on the client-side. It will be hands-on, so make sure to bring a laptop with F#. For playing with Fable, you'll also need to have node installed! Suave for the server-side

Suave is a lightweight web-server for F# that lets you compose web applications or REST services from small, correct, asynchronous web parts. It lets you compose asynchronous web services with just a couple of lines of code. For more information check out www.suave.io or demos like the F# snippes web site.

Fable is an F# to JavaScript compiler that lets you use functional-first programming style on the web. It produces modern and clean JavaScript with minimal core library and source maps. It integrates well with modern JavaScript dev tools like node, WebPack and organizes code using ES6 modules.

Tomas is a computer scientist, book author and open-source developer. He wrote a popular book called "Real-World Functional Programming" and is a lead developer of several F# open-source libraries, but he also contributed to the design of the F# language as an intern and consultant at Microsoft Research. He is a partner at fsharpWorks (http://fsharpworks.com) where he provides trainings and consulting services. Tomas recently submitted his PhD thesis at the University of Cambridge focused on types for understanding context usage in programming languages, but his most recent work also includes two essays that attempt to understand programming through the perspective of philosophy of science.

CryptoParty PDX!
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

This week's Exploit Workshop is a bit different...

CRYPTOPARTY PDX!

Why CryptoParty?

Privacy is the space in which ideas are developed, to retreat into whenever you want. This space is not only physical but digital as well. This is a right guaranteed by the 4th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. We've begun hosting cryptoparties here in Portland as a service to educate the general public about how they can better protect their privacy now and for the future.

What is a CryptoParty? CryptoParties are open for everyone but especially for people without prior knowledge that didn't dare attend yet, for free and most of all fun.

CryptoParty is a decentralized movement with events happening all over the world. The goal is to pass on knowledge about protecting yourself in the digital space. This can include encrypted communication, preventing being tracked while browsing the web and general security advice for computers and smartphones.

To try the programs and apps at the CryptoParty bring your laptop or smartphone.

CryptoParty is a grassroots global endeavour to introduce the basics of practical cryptography such as the Tor anonymity network, key signing parties, TrueCrypt, Linux, and virtual private networks to the general public.

This is a free skill-sharing event with other Cryptography and Privacy technology experts, working along side and sharing information with people new to Crypto and Privacy.

Everyone is welcome regardless of experience, bring a Laptop if you have one, if not, bring a USB thumbdrive, a pen and a pad of paper.

If you want to learn about how to encrypt your files and communicate securely, this is the event to come to!

Look for the people with laptops.

Get in contact If you want to help plan the event, or just join in on the fun you can contact us by emailing cryptoparty (AT) pdxhs (DOT) org

Legal Innovation & Technology Meetup with International #NewLaw Leaders Cat Moon, Jeena Cho, & Alix Devendra
Back Pedal Brewing

I'm very excited to announce an impromptu May 8 Meetup with three internationally recognized leaders in the NewLaw and LegalTech movements: Cat Moon, Jeena Cho, and Portland's own Alexandra Devendra! 

These forward-looking lawyers will lead a panel discussion ranging from hot topics like the blockchain and AI in legal, to less buzzworthy (but perhaps more important) concepts like what legal teams can learn from the ResponsiveOrg and Holocracy movements, why a meditation practice can help you deliver better client value (and how to start one), how to innovate using the tools of design professionals, and why diversity is the key to achieving better outcomes.

Cat Moon (@inspiredcat) teaches legal design thinking and agile project management at Vanderbilt Law School, her alma mater. She is a contributor to the ABA’s Legal Technology Today blog and writes there and elsewhere about legal technology, blockchain, kanban and agile project management, design thinking, diversity/inclusion in the law, and work/life alignment. Cat also is co-founder, COO and CDO of Legal Alignment, a legal tech startup developing an AI-powered, interoperable platform for legal workflow and project management. She just wrapped up an international conference on Blockchain in the Law and the first Music City Legal Hackathon

Jeena Cho (@jeena_cho) is the co-author of The Anxious Lawyer, An 8-Week Guide to a Joyful and Satisfying Law Practice Through Mindfulness and Meditation (ABA). She is a regular contributor to Forbes, Bloomberg and Above the Law where she covers resilience, work/life integration, and wellness in the workplace. She regularly speaks on women's issues, diversity, wellness, productivity, mindfulness and meditation. She also co-founded Shape The Law, an unconference for lawyers, with Alix Devendra and Mary Redzic.

Alix Devendra (@alixdevendra) is an attorney and legal design consultant based here in Portland. She helps lawyers make their work product more effective using typography and other principles of visual communication design. She is the co-author (with Cat Moon) of the forthcoming Designing Your Practice: A Design Thinking Approach to Legal Services. Alix also consults for legal-tech startups, who value her experience in both law practice and design thinking. She travels internationally to speak and facilitate workshops on legal design.


We'll be at a new location this time, BackPedal Brewing at NW 15th and Flanders. They are opening especially for us and their (excellent) beer will be on tap--please plan to support them!

Finally, we're looking to grow this group. Please forward this invitation to anyone you think would be interested in these topics, including listservs or other groups you're a part of.

Let us know if you have any questions; we hope to see you on Monday May 8!

--John & Zac

Emacs Monthly Hackers Group
Workday Beaverton Office

This month, the Emacs Hackers assemble for lightning talks demonstrating the results of last month’s project. Followed by a session of Hacking on Org Mode Tasks.

Due to a posted tweet about automatic refiling of old tasks, we figured we could hack Emacs to analyze the timestamps associated with tasks and archive or delete tasks that are too old to be relevant.

Our hack nights are collaborative group programming and quite a bit of fun, especially if you know little about Emacs Lisp. We pick simple projects that can be started during our hack night, but that can be polished and personalized afterwards.

Hope to see you there!

LIT-Lab PDX (Legal Innovation & Technology) - The Ethics of Legal Innovation
Jaguar Land Rover Incubator

Hello LIT-Lab PDX!

We're on track for our next Meetup on Tuesday June 20, when we'll be returning to the Jaguar Land Rover incubator for a very special presentation from Amber Hollister, General Counsel of the Oregon State Bar. 

Among other things, Amber provides ethics assistance to Oregon lawyers and others servicing the legal needs of Oregonians. More recently, she has spent the past several months as the Bar's primary contact to the Regulatory Committee of the Futures Task Force of the Bar (the sister committee to the Innovation Task Force that we kicked off here at LIT-Lab back in the fall). 

Both committees of the Futures Task Force are in the process of finalizing their findings and recommendations to present to the Bar's Board of Governors later this month, and Amber and I will both give you all a preview of those recommendations. (Teaser: if adopted, the recommendations should put Oregon at the national forefront of innovative approaches to Access to Justice issues).

Then, Amber will spend a little time talking about the ethics of legal innovation more generally, including plenty of time to answer your questions.

NW Corporate Law is generously providing pizza again this time. Hope you can make it!

#FullStackPDX : Code Critique

Who are we? We are entrepreneurs, full stack engineers, hackers, continuous learners, but above all, we are a group that loves to work hard and play harder. We organize a variety of content types, and the organizing team believes in delivering the best value for time invested in our events. Companies have launched, founders paired, code taken apart, lessons learned, and more. We are not the typical meetup where a teacher like presenter stands in front of the class and delivers their message. We are a full hands on interactive experience and meetings are successful from the cumulative knowledge and expertise of all members.

Join us for something different.

Join us to learn.

Let’s have fun building our dreams.

CodeBytes - Show and Tell Social

Hello! This meetup is going to be a little different from our last ones. I intend for this to be more of a social meeting where people can bring in past CodeBytes projects to work on them or to do a little show and tell. This is also a good time to bring someone completely new to programming and we can help get them started! 

If you have any questions or ideas please feel free to follow up with either Sam or Alison. 

Cheers!

CodeBytes - Let's build a basic API

We have decided by popular demand to do the rest api challenge again! For those of you who have already done it you either extend the functionality of your api or help someone working on this for the first timee.


We will be building a basic API. For this exercise you will need to do some prep before the meeting. We have setup steps for Ruby, Python, and Node.js. If you are interested in a language outside of those let us know and we can try to accommodate. There are some examples in our API challenge repo currently for other languages check it out here: https://github.com/CodeBytes-PDX/rest-api-challenge  

You can find the Ruby starting steps and basic app here: https://github.com/CodeBytes-PDX/rest-api-challenge/blob/master/ruby/setup.md

The Python starting steps are here: https://github.com/CodeBytes-PDX/rest-api-challenge/blob/master/python/setup.md

For now here are some resources to look through:

Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representational_state_transfer


Ruby: http://apionrails.icalialabs.com/book/frontmatter


Node.js: https://medium.freecodecamp.com/building-a-simple-node-js-api-in-under-30-minutes-a07ea9e390d2

CTRL-H - PDX Hackerspace - Intro to Machine Learning
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

This session will be an ML course for the beginner.  My favorite two entry-level models are decision trees and k-means, so we'll use those to begin wrapping our minds around words like supervised and unsupervised learning, information, and data models.

The code that powers the visuals I'll use is written in Python.  So while some background in coding (specifically Python) would help, those without coding experience will still get a lot from the talk.

I would like to have this event be done regularly, but obviously depends on interest.

Emacs Monthly Hackers Group
Workday Beaverton Office

This evening, Howard Abrams will kick off our new Emacs Hackery season by showing off some Emacs features for hacking Emacs Lisp…. that’s right, using Emacs to program Emacs Lisp (what a concept). This will be followed by some interesting ways to look up Emacs functions, which includes the illustrious suggest.el project.

With our environment initialized, we’ll start to hack on a new project (a game) that uses some of the new data structure libraries that have showed up in the Emacs ecosystem lately.

Equifax Q&A for the Layperson: What it means and What you can do
PASCAL

On September 7th, 2017 Equifax Inc., one of the largest three credit intelligence corporations in the world announced that it had been compromised from Mid-may through July of 2017. This breach resulted in the loss of information, including Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and driver's license numbers, for about 143 million people.

Join us Saturday, September 23rd for a free discussion regarding how this breach could affect you or your business, and what steps to take to limit the damage long term and protect your identity. We will field questions for a large portion of the event with the intent of better informing the community.

It is not the core intent of this event to sell any product or service, the core goal is simply to better inform local business owners and individuals.

Whether it's code or chips, hacking of all sorts is encouraged. But we also like to hear your crazy ideas, so please come join us and bring your willingness to share your brilliance. 

We'll be the kids with all the coolest stuff on the table. Hope to see you there.

p.s. This event is open to everyone, dork or robot. No ^H membership is required to attend.

Emacs Monthly Hackers Group
Workday Beaverton Office

Tonight we'll be hacking on Emacs' own shell, eshell. We'll begin with a overview of its capabilities and how it compares to better known, but not-as-extendable, shells. We'll then see how this "REPL with File System Controls" can be easily hacked and crafted into a most-amazing tool of awesome.

#FullStackPDX : October : Critique

Who are we? We are entrepreneurs, full stack engineers, hackers, continuous learners, but above all, we are a group that loves to work hard and play harder. We organize a variety of content types, and the organizing team believes in delivering the best value for time invested in our events. Companies have launched, founders paired, code taken apart, lessons learned, and more. We are not the typical meetup where a teacher like presenter stands in front of the class and delivers their message. We are a full hands on interactive experience and meetings are successful from the cumulative knowledge and expertise of all members.

Join us for something different.

Join us to learn.

Let’s have fun building our dreams.

CTRL-H - PDX Hackerspace - CTRL-H Open House

Thursdays are open house night here at CTRL-H. Jon and Melinda are available during this time to give guided tours, answer questions and show you all that the hackerspace has to offer. 

We don't have an opening ceremony or any formal meeting. This is a time for you to eavesdrop on other peoples projects and get support on a project that you may need help with. Bring your laptop, projects, inventions, your technical toys and your broken microwave to CTRL-H and hack with friends.
