Inside the Developer's Studio, with special guest Tony Falco
Portland Code School

Starting this month, Portland Code School will host a monthly public event called "Inside the Developer's Studio." Taking a note from the popular, similarly-named TV show (Inside the Actor's Studio), Cris Kelly, Director of PCS, interviews a dev, or someone in Portland's tech scene, to get to know the guest both personally and professionally. Through the interview, we hear their stories and experiences; we learn from their mistakes and successes; and we learn more about ourselves and our community, as we discover how they arrived in Portland's rousing tech arena, and how they're contributing to it.

This month's guest is Tony Falco, CEO and co-founder of Orchestrate. A database veteran and serial entrepreneur, Tony built Orchestrate after noticing hundreds of companies unnecessarily duplicate database infrastructure time and again. Previously, he co-founded Basho Technologies, creators of the NoSQL database Riak, where he served as COO. Prior, he was VP of Product Management and Technical Services at Akamai Technologies, which he helped grow to an annual revenue of over $200 million.

Spread the word! Invite your friends and colleagues! Bring your questions and your lunch into our spacious classroom over Friday's lunch hour, Noon to 1pm. Q&A opportunities at the end of the interview.

Women Who Code Portland: Software Engineering Interview Preparation
Puppet

Women Who Code Portland is hosting a Software Engineering Interview Preparation Workshop. This event is geared towards helping women prepare for technical interviews, but we welcome everyone who supports our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers and follows our code of conduct. The goal of the workshop is to provide people with the opportunity to gain experience with a technical interview format.

This workshop is broken into two sections: - Interview Best Practices - Mock Interviews & Whiteboarding

In the morning, we'll cover an introduction to solving algorithms. Participants will have the chance to see common interview algorithms, and approach how to solve them under pressure.

In the afternoon, we will break into groups for mock interviews. This will help participants get a feel for what a technical interview might be like. Whiteboarding can be much different than writing on paper, especially in front of others. Participants will have the chance to practice answers to common questions, thinking out loud while solving a problem and practice techniques for how to move forward when stumped.

AGENDA

  • 9:30 - Doors Open
  • 10:00 - Introductions, interview prep, and algorithm practice
  • 12:00 - Lunch
  • 1:00 - Break into groups for mock interviews
  • 4:30 - Finish

EVENT COST

The event cost is $10 for participants and includes lunch. Scholarships: If you are a student, under-employed, or in need of financial assistance, we have full scholarships available for this event. Please submit an application using this google form.

There will be no refunds for this event. If you cannot attend, you can email us to transfer the ticket to another attendee, or we can add it to our scholarship pool.

Art of Questioning
Portland Community Church

"Judge a person by their questions rather than their answers" - Voltaire

Do you want to solve problems quickly or be unafraid to talk to anyone?

I'm going to experiment with my social skills by interviewing at least twenty strangers in public. My goal is to ask the most interesting questions and if I'm successful, it will lead to even more interesting questions. This is a great way to learn about a person or topic very quickly.

I'm planning to record my interviews and share my techniques by recapping the results during the Meetup. If anyone would like to volunteer, we can practice the "Art of Questioning".

If you're a student "Questioning is the ability to organize your thinking around what we don't know" - The Right Question Institute. If you're a teacher, questions can guide a student to a better answer. Either way, we can do both.

Be inspired! Knowledge Mavens
