Note: this is a paid event. You can purchase tickets at https://universe.com/advancedredux

You've learned React, and are excited about building robust, scalable applications. But at some point your application is going to become too complex for React to handle on its own. How do you effectively manage each component and their states? Enter Redux.

Redux has fast become the architecture of choice for building scalable applications with JavaScript and React. It will help you to better organize your application and make state mutations more predictable and transparent.

In this advanced workshop, FreeCodeCamp CTO Berkeley Martinez will help you to take your development skills to the next level.

What you will learn

Saturday - Sunday:

  • Using Redux Middleware
  • Managing Asynchronicity
  • Dispatching Thunks and Promises
  • Using Redux with RxJS Observables
  • Analytics with Redux
  • Server Side Rendering using RxJS Observables

What we will build

We will apply the principles above as we build a social e-commerce app, complete with:

  • Search and Filtering
  • User authentication
  • Likes
  • Follows
  • Shopping Cart

Dev Nation
Ace Hotel

In early 2009, several developers from Relevance and Viget Labs got together and starting talking about technical conferences. As we discussed our past experiences at regional, national, and international events, we began to realize something: large conferences are wonderful for a lot of things, but we wanted something that met a different set of goals. We came up with Developer Day, which was designed to:

  • Build lasting relationships among local peers
  • Bridge distinct technical communities

After a year of Developer Days, however, we decided a new look was in order, and thus was born DevNation. We've still got the same ideals, but we feel that the DevNation name better reflects that vision (and it's easier to Google!)

Relationships

The general pattern for a large conference runs something like this: you fly to a city, go to the event, have a great time, meet lots of great people, and fly home. More often than not, you don't see those people again until the next big conference, and that's a problem. We wanted our event to be different, so it's intentionally local. Speakers and attendees are overwhelmingly local to the conference, so when you meet someone doing something cool, you can connect with them a week later for lunch without a problem.

Technology-Agnostic

Sure, there are events that draw a wide range of developers (e.g., OSCON), but even then people tend to segregate; the Pythonists go to their sessions, the Rubyists to theirs, and the PHP devs to theirs. By having only one track, we give everyone the opportunity to see what's happening in other communities.

Our next meetup will be hosted at Crowd Compass! :)

Registration will open at 12noon PST on Monday, July 4th and you DO need to RSVP to attend this event.

Program

Sensible Broccoli
by Mark Avery

Broccoli is an integral and powerful part of ember-cli, but documentation and recent best practices can be hard to come by. By stepping through my rewrite of ember-component-css, we'll uncover the basics of broccoli, writing custom plugins, persistent outputs, and how to integrate these into ember-cli.

Ambitious Design in the Age of Ambitious Web Apps
by Chris Salvi

Far too often we as developers/engineers strive to create ambitious apps with design being an afterthought in the ideation process. My discussion tonight is to argue for a world in which we can strive for ambition in both engineering and design, to move away from blatant aesthetic plagiarism and to return to a sense of creativity within the art of structuring a site.

The Benefits, Challenges and Tricks of Accessing Your Information Without Bogging Down Your App by Kyle Mellander

What do you do when you have a relationship with 1000+ related items? How do you handle complex relationships from the back-end? Let's face it, accessing data on the front-end is very different from the back-end. It requires us to shift our thinking of how we want our data to be structured. We'll look at how Ember natively handles those relationships and what you can do to find solutions for those complex data situations.

7:55pm - 8:15pm: Wrap-ups, Networking


Program

Responsive Templates, by Rocky Neurock

One tool in the Responsive Design belt involves making decisions, at the template level, for different devices/media. Ember makes it extremely easy to do this in Handlebars. Rocky will show some simple examples.

Coding More Effectively Through Conventions, by Evan Rowe

Terms like "convention over configuration" and "coding standards" are thrown around often in the development world, but not much time is dedicated to discussing why these things matter, and how they can be useful. We'll take a look at the importance of these principles, and how you can put them to work to improve the quality and efficiency of your (and your team's) code.

First Ever Ember PDX Meetup!
Tilde Inc

Members of the Ember Core Team have recently moved to Portland, and we're really excited to get a local chapter of the Ember Meetup spun up and flourishing! We'll be meeting at the Tilde offices and mimicking the events we've been putting on San Francisco for years.

The basic formula: good people, good food, good talks. We'll generally have two talks, usually at different skill levels, some break and networking time, and other topically relevant things as they come up.

We'll be announcing the talks for this meetup shortly and opening registration on December 30th, but for now, save the date! We've got plenty of room, but RSVPs via Meetup ARE required.

Galois tech talk: Sunroof and a Blank Canvas: A tail of two DSLs
Galois, Inc

abstract: Sunroof is an embedded Haskell Domain Specific Language (DSL) that compiles to JavaScript. Blank Canvas is an embedded Haskell DSL that provides direct access to the HTML5 JavaScript Canvas. Both DSLs superficially provide the same capabilities, but make different trade-offs in the DSL design space. Sunroof uses monadic reification to enable bindings in the DSL to be translated into bindings in JavaScript, while blank canvas has every binding make a round trip from Haskell, to JavaScript, back to Haskell. In this talk, we will present the specifics of both DSLs, using examples, then use both DSLs to outline the difference choices available when designing and implementing embedded DSLs in Haskell.

bio: Andrew (Andy) Gill was born and educated in Scotland, and has spent his professional career in the United States, working both in industry, and academia. Andy received his Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow in 1996, then spent three years in industry as a compiler developer, and a year in academia as a principal project scientist. He co-founded Galois in 2000, a technology transfer company that used language technologies to create trustworthiness in critical systems. In 2008, he joined the University of Kansas, and in 2014 he was a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award.

Andy believes that functional languages like Haskell are a great medium for expressing algorithms and solving problems. Since returning to academia, he has targeted the application areas of telemetry and signal processing, specializing in generating high performance circuits from specifications. His research interests include optimization, language design, debugging, and dependability. The long-term goal of his research is to offer engineers and practitioners the opportunity to write clear and high-level executable specifications that can realistically be compiled into efficient implementations.

Hack + Help: Learning Cohort Night
PDX Code Guild at NedSpace on 5th

About the event:

Hack + Help is planning ongoing learning cohorts for those who want to learn a new skill with the increased accountability and mutual support of a class, without all the lectures and cost.

The plan is for members to choose a new topic every few months (for example, Python, or Backbone, or databases) and form a cohort that wants to work together to learn more about it. This could be through a MOOC, online tutorials, code challenges, or something else entirely.

Learning a new skill in isolation is challenging, so if you have a topic you'd like to learn more about, come meet with us on January 28th to help us build a new cohort!

I want to work for _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (this month is InvisionApp)
Forge Portland

We are super-thrilled to welcome our October special guest, Dana Lawson. Dana is the VP of Platform Engineering at InvisionApp. And the cool part is InvisionApp is a very remote-friendly company (more about this at the meetup session). Dana Lawson on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dglawson Invision on Twitter: https://twitter.com/invisionapp

Dana and I worked together at New Relic for about a year. The first thing anyone notices about Dana is her electrifying energy and her sharp sense of humor. You can tell right away that working with her would be super-fun and you could get lots of things accomplished with little or no stress. Dana’s illustrious career record proves my theory :) Dana had great opportunities to wear many hats throughout her 18 year career in technology.

Earlier this year, Dana wanted to take these lessons learned from being in that crazy world and do it all over again, but better! So when the opportunity came to build out a Platform Engineering organization at InVision she decided to take that chance.

This is just a teaser for all the goodness you can expect at the actual meetup. As always, you have our PERSONAL GUARANTEE that this meetup is the best value for your precious ~2 hours away from friends/family :)

So definitely join us and bring along your "tech-curious" friends with you. If you are ready to learn what's out there (I know there's a lot of choice out there) in the tech world and want to explore options peripherally, this is the meetup for you... and has been for the last 2+ years. jetReports has a number of unique things going for them and I can't wait to dig into some of those aspects on March 8th.

International NodeBots Day 2013--PDX
Cloudability

This is not a hackathon. There will be no prizes other than the satisfaction of making something awesome! There will be very little in the way of talks. We're going to get together, collaborate and hack. This is more NodeConf SummerCamp than NodeConf. Sharing. Enjoying each other's company. Learning and exploring. And JavaScript. Lots of JavaScript.

We want to show that node is an all-purpose, fun tool by showing its potential with hardware. How? By bringing together those interested in node and hardware hacking, and giving them an open space to hack, collaborate, learn, and share their results with others.

What Cool Stuff can I do? Checkout the Johnny-Five examples for some examples of cool stuff to do with Node and Arduino.

JavaScript Beginners Workshop
Epicodus

No coding experience is necessary! At minimum, you should be comfortable using computers. At most, you may have done some HTML and/or CSS, but aren't a professional developer.

We'll cover the basics of how the web works, what part languages and frameworks and other buzzwords play, and then we'll dive into some programming fundamentals using JavaScript! By the end, you'll have a good sense of how to continue learning web programming.

We'll use the Epicodus curriculum from www.learnhowtoprogram.com starting with the JavaScript lesson Arithmetic. Feel free to check it out in advance and also to jump into the curriculum wherever you're most comfortable. People at different skills levels are welcome to move through the curriculum at their own pace during the workshop.

Joyent and PDXNode present: NODE.JS ON THE ROAD
Urban Airship Inc

Please register for this special event at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nodejs-on-the-road-portland-tickets-10630635517

This month PDXNode will be hosting a special presentation night with a visit from our Joyent friends from the south:

"The profile of users developing and deploying Node.js in production is always changing. As new people come to Node, or as the needs of veterans change, it's important for that information to find its way back to the project. Similarly, it's important for those who are deploying Node in production to bring their wisdom to those just starting out. To that end, Joyent is sponsoring Node.js on the Road, a roadshow aimed at keeping the community connected with the project and production users of Node.

We'll be bringing speakers from large and small companies alike to share how they're using Node in production. To talk about the where's, why's, and how's of Node fitting and scaling to their companies' needs. Also, they'll be discussing the ways they coordinate with the Node project and the broader community.

But this isn't a one way road, we want to hear from you too. We want to know about your uses of Node, where Node is being successful for you, and where your pain points are. The Node project is nothing without this feedback, it's vital to make sure Node is heading in the direction its users need.

It's going to be a fun trip. I can't wait to share with you all the exciting things going on with Node, and to get more people involved.

See you soon!"

Magic Night - Javascript Code Challenge
Notch8 Workspace

Magic Night is a hands on, team oriented, Javascript coding lab, welcoming of all experience levels and backgrounds. We get together because coding is fun; fun to solve hard problems, and fun to work together. We organize into small teams to code up creative solutions to a common challenge, then after 3 hours of building, present to the group.

This month, we're going to look at the popular game called Sokoban. We'll implement an engine to generate the board, and allow users to play.

The computer game Sokoban, invented by Hiroyuki Imabayashi, was introduced by Thinking Rabbit of Takarazuka, Japan in 1982. This simple game of logic puzzles was an instant success. It won awards and spawned sequels. Over the years, Sokoban has been ported to a huge number of platforms. Fan support remains strong and many of those fans even produce new levels for the game.

We organize into small teams to code up creative solutions to a common challenge, then after 3 hours of building, present to the group.

This month, we'll be divide into teams and work together to create an Alexa app, which is both a lot of fun, and easier to plumb than you'd expect. The challenge will come in the intelligence you and your team bake into the interaction.

Today's magic night challenge is to build an animal quiz program.

It works like this. The program starts by telling the user to think of an animal. It then begins asking a series of yes/no questions about that animal: does it swim, does it have hair, etc. Eventually, it will narrow down the possibilities to a single animal and guess that (Is it a mouse?).

Mobile Portland — Choosing The Right Stack for Mobile
Urban Airship Inc

The problem: You are an enterprise or startup with some desktop offerings, and the writing on the wall has turned into the tattoo on your forehead. The time has come to turn some or all of your money printing machine into something that can be easily accessed and used on smartphones and tablets.

The solution: It depends.

It is also the topic of Dee Madden’s presentation at Mobile Portland this month: “Choosing The Right Stack for Mobile: The Pros And Cons of Each”

The topic of Native vs Hybrid vs Pure Web vs Shared Codebase vs Whatever is a well worn one, but dynamic and ever-changing, nonetheless. In this presentation, Dee will examine the current landscape, with a pragmatic approach that holds all solutions equal. He will cover the pluses and minuses of each, and how to leverage the more endearing traits of one over the other as the best solution for the problem at hand.

Among the stacks covered are:

  • Native
  • Hybrid “Shrinkwrap” solutions – a focus on PhoneGap, with some discussion of the others, such as Appcelerator and Sencha
  • Roll-your-own Hybrid – hybrid built with a custom native container
  • Drive-Through Hybrid – Codiqa
  • Shared Codebase – Xamarin, with a dusting of the Ruby-based Rhodes framework

Throughout, Dee will show some working examples of some of these, providing some concrete examples of the advantages of each, and some of the pitfalls that can come with them as applications evolve, with an anecdote or two for good measure.

Come on out and kick the shindig in the shins! Dee will have his shinguards on!

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.

OWASP/AngularJS combined: Boosting the Security of Your Angular Application
Cambia Health Solutions

This month PDX OWASP is joining forces with the local Angular JS meetup to feature:
Philippe De Ryck, PhD
Web Security Expert @ imec-DistriNet, KU Leuven

Abstract

Angular 2 is hot, and there is a huge amount of information available on building applications, improving performance, and various other topics. But do you know how to make your Angular 2 applications secure? What kind of security features does Angular 2 offer you, and which additional steps can you take to really boost the security of your applications?

In this session, we cover one of the biggest threats in modern web applications: untrusted JavaScript code. You will learn how Angular protects you against XSS, and why you shouldn't bypass this protection. We will also dive into new security mechanisms, such as Content Security Policy. Through a few examples, I will show you how you can use these mechanisms to enhance the security in your client-side context.

Speaker

Philippe De Ryck is a professional speaker and trainer on software security and web security. Since he obtained his PhD at the imec-DistriNet research group (KU Leuven, Belgium), he has been running the group's Web Security Training program, which ensures a sustainable knowledge transfer of the group’s security expertise towards practitioners.

You can find more about Philippe on https://www.websec.be


The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a 501c3 not-for-profit worldwide charitable organization focused on improving the security of application software. To sign up for future meeting notes and to discuss security topics with local gurus, sign up on the OWASP Portland mailing list: https://lists.owasp.org/mailman/listinfo/owasp-portland

Palm Pre Development Workshop

Join us on Saturday the 5th for the Portland Pre Development Workshop. Everyone is welcome to attend, no prior programming experience is needed.

  What is a Pre?
  The Pre refers to the Palm Pre, a new competitor in the Smartphone market.

  Why develop for the Pre?
  The pre offers a simple but comprehensive SDK that is easy to build on but is also powerful. The Pre has a flourishing open source community.

  Why is the Pre so good?
  There are many reasons why the Pre is a good development platform. The big reason is potential. While the SDK only allows web coding with additional API's, the core of the system is Linux, which already has a large community.

  What do I need for a Pre Development Workshop?
  Please bring a laptop with the SDK already installed.

  The SDK can be downloaded from http://developer.palm.com

  I also recommend installing the eclipse platform with the Mojo plug-in. Instructions can be found here: http://developer.palm.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1639

  Why only six tickets?
  The space we are using at Souk has space for six people. If tickets sell out, then we will add more tickets.

What is Terraformer? A library for converting geographic data between different mapping formats and GeoJSON.". But it's more than that, it's a Geo-Toolkit that works in node as well as in the browser via AMD or CommonJS, providing tools for reading and writing from multiple geo formats, converting to and from web mercator, an RTree index, and some simple polygon tools.

You can check it out at https://github.com/geoloqi/Terraformer

PDX PHP - Let's Talk Scope
ImpactFlow

There will be food, give-a-ways (elephpants), and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

Scope is a major factor in any application, from programing scope to project scope, and communication is key. We will discuss different application scopes including global, functional, class, and package scope. From there we will show how everything ties together with communication of the project itself. Why and how to stay on top of project scope and how that can make or break the final outcome.

Join us to learn and share with others in the community as we all grow in understanding and skills

PDX PHP - The Red Team is Coming!
ImpactFlow

There will be food, give-a-ways (elephpants), and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

This month we will have a special guest speaker from Las Vegas: 

Adam Englander is an Engineer, Speaker, and Author with 30 years of experience in building business applications. He has been an outspoken evangelist of PHP during what he calls “The PHP Renaissance”. Adam is a strong believer in the power of strong developer communities. He is a actively involved in the Las Vegas technical community and the Founder of PHP Vegas. Always looking to push the boundaries of what is possible with PHP, Adam has been working to expose the PHP community at large to IoT and asynchronous programming. He also advocates building better applications today by building well tested applications that are cryptography secure.

The Red Team is Coming!

The Red Team, hackers, criminal organizations, and nation states, are a constant threat. The systems we build are the targets. We need to understand the human collateral that hangs in the balance. We embrace methodologies to write better code and make our lives better. They do nothing for the rest of humanity that is directly affected by security vulnerabilities we introduce. In this presentation, I will put a human face on the users of our software. I will challenge you to think in terms of flesh and blood rather than ones and zeros. We are all the Blue Team. We protect the rest of humanity. Join me in the fight. The Red Team is coming!

PDX PHP - Using Generators to Beat Memory Bloat
ImpactFlow

There will be food, give-a-ways (elePHPants) and a great time getting to know your fabulous PHP Community!

6:30 - We'll start off with Pizza and networking at 6:30

6:45 - 7:45 - Move into the presentation on Generators, by Korvin Szanto

Memory usage is something that we as developers have to be aware of. Ever debugging a memory issue and find that your once small dataset has ballooned out of proportion? And instead of dealing with the issue, you opt for upping the memory limit? Iterators can be the answer but they require a lot of code and can be very difficult to understand at a glance. Thankfully since PHP 5.5 Generators help us create and manage what would be complex iterators with simple syntax sugar. In this talk I will go over some of the ways you can implement generators and cure your memory bloat.


7:45 - Prizes

7:45 - 8:30 - Hack and Help. Have a chance to try out Generators for yourself, or bring your own project and get some help from the community.

PDX-UX: Avoiding the Spaghetti by Henrik Joreteg
Thetus Corporation

Agenda:

  • Snacks, Beer and Networking 5:30 - 6:00
  • Presentation and discussion: 6:00-7:30 or so 

Join our google group here - http://groups.google.com/group/pdx-ux?hl=en  Don't forget to follow us on twitter - @PDXUX -  https://twitter.com/#!/PDXUX

Henrik Joreteg – “Avoiding the Spaghetti” Clientside code doesn't have to be an ugly cluttered mess. Building clean, sane, maintainable client-side applications is indeed possible. We'll talk a bit about CommonJS on the client, properly abstracting a model layer, the DOM as a dumb view layer, sharing code between client/ server and other techniques for avoiding insanity like automated static code analysis. 

Henrik is a partner and lead JS developer at &yet (http://andyet.net), a boutique web software company in Richland, WA. He's a member of a growing group of javascript developers who are blazing the trail of realtime and single-page web application development and server-side javascript. Let’s put it this way: the dude cannot shut up about node.js, backbone, and socket.io. 

He is the primary developer for &bang (http://andbang.com) and has written a slew of single-page real-time web apps using a number of technologies. He recently spoke at NodeConf and KRTConf and was a technical reviewer for O'Reilly's JavaScript Web Applications. He is the author of the popular open source javascript templating solution, iCanHaz.js and as an early adopter of Backbone.js wrote several definitive blogposts on the subject.

TapApp (tap-app-pdx.herokuapp.com) is a draft beer availability and rating app that lets users find, share and rate noteworthy craft beers available in the Portland area. 

Swap-tacular

A sharing web app that allows users to post photos, locations and descriptions of items, then give those items away to others.   

Project R

A free Instagram hashtag aggregation slideshow projector, designed to quickly and easily create a slideshow of relevant images. 

Beerify

Beerify creates a crowd-sourced database of which beers people are currently drinking out on the town and where they're currently available. The app serves as a one-stop point of information for locating your favorite beers in near real time.

Choose Your Own Portland Adventure

Modeled after choose-your-own-adventure books, the Choose Your Own Portland Adventure app delivers a series of adventures you can do solo, or with friends or visiting family members, based on your personal preferences. The questions return a dynamic story based on results from a variety of APIs.

Portland Code School Tree Lighting Ceremony (and open house)
Burnside Digital Office

Come and check out the PCS classroom, meet some new folks, drink some nog, play some board/card/dice games, and be witness to the first ever PCS tree lighting ceremony!

Admittedly, the 'ceremony' aspect of things will be a bit thin... but the other festivities will make up for it :)

We will have nog and beer. Feel free to bring your own drinks/food, or bring some to share. Mostly, you can expect to just hang out, play some games, and learn more about PCS informally.

The basic formula: good people, good food, good talks. We'll generally have two talks, usually at different skill levels, some break and networking time, and other topically relevant things as they come up.

If you or someone you know would like to take a stab at presenting (either a full talk slot, or even a short lightning talk), please get in touch. We'd love to have you!

Similarly, if you or your company would be up for sponsoring, we can use all the help we can get (especially if we want to keep up the good-food trend!). Please reach out to discuss.

Portland JavaScript Admirers' Lightning Talks
Janrain Headquarters

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

This is the meeting where we will have LIGHTNING TALKS!

I encourage everyone to give a talk—especially anyone who has not given a talk at a user group meeting before. This is a great opportunity to practice speaking with a bite-size time slot. I (Jesse) have found that giving presentations is a good way to get name/face recognition, which has opened a lot of doors for me. And this will be a context where there will be other people speaking who have also not given a talk before.

Talks will be 5 minute presentations, with or without slides or other visual aids of your choosing. Choose any topic that interests you—so long as it is safe-for-work.

If you would like to give a talk, send an email to Jesse Hallett ([email protected]) to be added to the list. If you are going to use slides please send a copy to the same address so that we can have everybody's presentations ready to go on one computer. Sign up first and send the slides later if you need time to make the slides. Slots will be first-come, first-served. We have time for 12–14 presentations.

I wanted to include some tips for anyone who has not given a lightning talk before:

  • Practice! Do your talk out loud a few times in front a friend, mirror, an empty room, or whatever. Time yourself while practicing. You will feel silly doing this. But it is the only way to make sure that you are prepared to get the most use out of your five minutes. That is a very short time slot. Practicing will help you to focus on important points, and will help you to avoid points that you might otherwise stumble over.

  • Speak slowly, and take pauses while you are speaking. When I am in front of a room full of people, I have a tendency to worry that I am wasting a lot of people's time, which makes me want to rush and to talk too fast. I think that this is a common reaction. You can give a better talk by resisting the temptation to hurry. Pausing between points, or when you need a moment to collect your thoughts, will give your audience opportunity to digest your points. Remember that a pause that feels long and awkward to you probably does not feel that way to your audience.

  • If you use slides, my suggestion is to use at most 10 slides. That is one slide for every 30 seconds of speaking time. Your slide count is one way to estimate whether you are trying to fit in too much material for the given time.

  • It is preferable to cover one point well than to go over five points hastily. Think about what the core point of your talk is, and how much you can take out while still conveying that point.

  • Have some water handy—public speaking tends to lead to cottonmouth.

Feel free to join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/pdxjs if you too are a JavaScript admirer. Or visit our web site for more information at http://pdxjs.com/.

If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please e-mail and Jesse Hallett ([email protected]).

This will be a lightning talk meeting! I encourage everyone to give a short presentation - five minutes or less - especially if you have not presented at pdxjs before. The talk can be on anything you want.

Pick a topic and make some slides, if you want to use slides. A five minute talk works well with ten or fewer slides, which gives you 30 seconds per slide. Add your name and a link to your slides (if any) to the signup sheet.

In addition, Kyle Drake will be presenting on Coinpunk, the future of browser cryptography, why he thinks server-side encryption and password hashing is going away, and how to use HTML5/JS/Node to develop secure applications for Bitcoin, a technology Rickard Falkvinge called "the Napster of banking".

Elemental Technologies

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

THIS IS NOT OUR USUAL LOCATION! This month only, the meeting will be at Elemental Technologies.

We have three presentations on the agenda this month:

JavaScript, Hardware and the Internet of Things, presented by Gerald Aden

Internet of Things has become a huge opportunity for software, hardware and designers alike to create solutions for both consumers and businesses. We'll explore how to get started using JavaScript/Node.js, a Raspberry PI and the Cloud to easily get started developing for this exciting space.

RactiveJS, presented by Marty Nelson

Ractive.js is a template-driven UI library. Unlike other tools that generate inert HTML, it transforms your templates into blueprints for apps that are interactive by default. Ractive was originally created at theguardian.com by Rich Harris to produce news applications. These apps are heavily interactive, combine HTML and SVG, and are developed under extreme deadline pressure. It has to work reliably across browsers, and perform well even on mobile devices.

Ractive is a library, not a framework. Where some tools force you to learn a new vocabulary and structure your app in a particular way, Ractive works for you, not the other way around – and it plays well with other libraries. In this talk, we'll go over the main features of Ractive.js, and also show possible integrations that highlight the varied approaches to working with Ractive.

Marty Nelson is a contributor to the Ractive open-source project. A 15 year veteran (survivor?) of enterprise software development he has been a developer, manager and lead architect. The last few years he has been focused on javascript, both in node and the browser, and web and mobile app development with HTML5.

Mystery bonus presentation

We may or may not be able to get to the final presentation. So for now it will remain a mysterious secret!

Portland ReactJS meetup
Idealist.org

Greetings fellow Reagents!

We are looking forward to our first official ReactJS user group. Dave and Eric from Idealist.org will be sharing some interesting stuff (details below) with us, and we're hoping to have one additional talk. Please let us know if you're interested in speaking/presenting. We'd like to have at least a few lightning talks as well. I have a feeling this will fill up fast, so please RSVP if you would like to attend this event.

If you are new to our group, Welcome! If you would like to get more involved or hear what we're talking about, we'd like to invite you to join our google group to join the conversations or start a new one. Also, please take a look at our code of conduct which let's you know what we think "being excellent to each other" should look and feel like.

Talks:

Notes on the Design of Components (Dave McCabe)

Dave will discuss what idealist.org has learned about designing React components, specifically techniques for promoting simplicity, reuse, statelessness, and separation of concerns, and for dealing with asynchrony.

Isomorphic Webpack Hot Module Replacement Boilerplate (Eric O'Connell)

  • Do you want to serve fully-rendered HTML from your React application?
  • Do you want near-instant feedback in your browser as soon as you edit your React components?
  • How about CSS?

This talk will give the starting point for a very nice dev environment using the webpack Hot Module Replacement feature. It will include a (trivial) Express app that renders the entire React component hierarchy which will then be hydrated on the client. Variations shown will include serving API requests out of the same app, and shared client/server routing.

TBD / Lightning talks

Get in touch with us if you'd like to share your experiences!

PSU Tech Talk: Introduction to JavaScript
Portland State University FAB, Room 86-09

As the language of web browsers, JavaScript is pervasive in web application development. It also offers particular advantages in that it is well-suited to functional programming and has the flexibility of a dynamic language. This talk will give a taste of what JavaScript programming looks like, some practices for getting the most out of the language, and some some common pitfalls.

Jesse Hallett is a Senior JavaScript Engineer at Jive Software. He is also an organizer of the Portland JavaScript Admirers, a local user group. Jesse has given talks on JavaScript and other topics at various user groups and conferences including Open Source Bridge, NodePDX, and Portland Code Camp.

RactiveJS workshop with Marty Nelson
Epicodus

An introduction and exploration of live, reactive templating with RactiveJS.

Whether you're a beginner or a veteran of web development, leverage your HTML, JS, and CSS knowledge to easily create dynamic data-driven applications and websites.

RSVP Here: ractivejs-workshop-april.eventbrite.com

What is Ractive JS?

Ractive is a template-driven UI library, but unlike other tools that generate inert HTML, it transforms your templates into blueprints for apps that are interactive by default.

Some tools force you to learn a new vocabulary and structure your app in a particular way. Ractive works for you, not the other way around – and it plays well with other libraries.

What will the workshop cover?

Templating

We'll cover the mustache basics and then dive into the expanded abilities of two-way binding, sections and expressions. Patterns for common use cases like master/detail relationships.

Data, Binding and Observers

Controlling data through template binding and programmatic manipulation. Establishing data flows with observers.

Decorators, Events and Transitions & Animations

Encapsulate DOM manipulation, respond to events and provide intro and outro effects

Components

Apply the fundamentals of Ractive in a modular fashion to build composable, powerful apps

Advanced Configuration and Instantiation, and more

Resources to get started

Installation

Using Ractive can be as simple as adding a script tag in the browser.

However, for this workshop please make sure you have node.js installed as will be exploring ractive in a modern build environment. Here's how to get started: http://docs.ractivejs.org/latest/get-started-with-node-js

Smallest Federated Wiki Collaboration Session
PIE: Portland Incubator Experiment

Wiki-founder Ward Cunningham shared his idea of a Smallest Federated Wiki SFW during IndieWebCamp this June. In a few short weeks, he brought his idea to life and is inviting others to work with him on it! Come to PIE for a short hack session on "smallest federated wikis". Max Ogden will also be joining us from San Francisco!

What is SFW? The Smallest Federated Wiki project wants to be small in the "easy to learn powerful ideas" version of small. It wants to be a wiki so that strangers can meet and create works of value together. And it wants to be federated so that the burden of maintaining long-lasting content is shared among those who care.

On Thursday, May 11th, Second Story will host Women Who Code Portland’s monthly Networking Night in their new design studio.


Second Story is a network of experiential design studios working across the cultural and brand landscapes to elevate the art of storytelling. They build stories you can step inside of.

The theme for the night is Make It Happen: Improvising, Collaborating, Prototyping. The format of the night is an “around the world”; after the welcome, we will break into 3 smaller groups and each smaller group will attend every session offered. The night will be centered around how the team at Second Story works collaboratively, how they create prototypes that help them push the boundaries, and the leadership styles that make it all possible. 

We hope you’ll join us. Second Story is absolutely thrilled to host us in their new studio!

Program

6:00 - 6:30pm – Doors Open + Networking

6:30 - 7:40pm – Welcome + Around the World Sessions

7:40 - 8:00pm – Networking   

Session #1 - Improvising To Become Better Collaborators

Second Story is a highly collaborative studio making work that none of them could possibly produce on their own. Needless to say they have to be excellent listeners and collaborators. So that means they have to practice. Laura Allcorn, Creative Lead and Sr. Experience Designer, will lead a brief improvisation workshop that helps you brush up on our listening and collaboration skills. If the thought of this makes you nervous, please know this isn’t a performance and trying to be funny will be frowned upon.

Session #2 - Getting Real Fast

Prototyping is a necessity at Second Story. Their project teams will share how they prototype and why they do it. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at examples from projects with major museums and brands. Along the way they’ll share key learnings and show you how they evolved the experiences created.

Session #3 - Exposing Unconscious Bias

Kelsey Snook, Creative Director, will facilitate a discussion about women in leadership roles. She will share the Second Story approach to tackling unconscious bias with their Make Some Room campaign, an effort to increase inclusivity in the tech and creative fields.

These patches are privacy-enhancing on multiple fronts, using features only available in Firefox.

Write The Docs PDX - Learn About The Wacom User Help System
New Relic

Wacom -- a company which develops Pen Input hardware -- needed a user help system to move beyond static PDFs. Their solution was to separate product-specific PDFs into a series of, mostly common, HTML topic pages. These HTML file were, in turn, processed into a web deliverable package via Python scripting.

The solution is complex, as the Wacom system includes interrelationships between 150+ topics across over 30 products and 14 languages.

The solution required “a more technical Tech Writer” -- as it required knowledge of HTML
Python
JavaScript
Excel Macros

Wacom implemented their solution by integrating their tech writer in their Engineering team. They also included a dedicated engineering resource to support design and development of their technical docs.

Write The Docs PDX - Networking with a side of Write The Docs proposals
New Relic

NOTE: We'll be in New Relic's newest meeting room, on the 27th floor


The Write The Docs NA conference returns to Portland in May, and the deadline for proposals is February 10 (midnight PST).


For the third year, we'll give people who want to propose a chance to test things out, either by speaking briefly, or by brainstorming their proposals.

FYI, O'Reilly has an excellent guide to creating conference proposals, "Propose, Prepare, Present". If you navigate to http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920027096.do, you can get the eBook version for free.

We'll start with a brief networking session from 6-6:30.

At 6:30, I'll make a few announcements. Anyone who wants to try out a "preview" of a conference talk (5-10 min), or just present their draft proposal for comments, can speak to the group (or ask questions) after that.
