PC Board Fabrication Workshop
TechShop Portland [closed]

Have you ever wanted to lay out and create your own printed circuit board? Then this inexpensive course is for you. This is a focused workshop on fabrication that will take three designs and follow them all the way to physical circuit boards using commonly available chemicals and the freeware version of Eagle PCB design (download).

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.

ChickTech's Scrum Workshop
DeskHub

Come to ChickTech’s Scrum Workshop to get a refresher or an introduction to the world of Scrum. For two Wednesday evenings in a row, you will go through the core aspects of the Scrum Framework. This includes why Scrum works, the key players on each Scrum team, and how product development occurs within Scrum.

Registration for this event includes both workshop sessions. You can register for the event via Eventbrite.

Scrum is an agile way to manage a project, usually software development. Agile software development with Scrum is often perceived as a methodology; but rather than viewing Scrum as methodology, think of it as a framework for managing a process. -Mountain Goat Software

The Instructor: Austin Richter, Scrum Master Austin, a Certified Scrum Master, has been working within the Scrum Framework for two years. Before that he worked as Project Coordinator on a team that was transitioning from a Waterfall approach to Scrum.

Session 1, September 30th: Introduction to Scrum and Building a Backlog The first session will offer an overview/refresher of the Scrum Framework. In this workshop we will explore the differences betwen a Waterfall approach and the Scrum Framework. This will highlight the importance of feedback to a team. We will demonstrate these concepts by constructing a bridge and building backlogs. During the building a backlog activity we will explore the three roles on the Scrum Team.

Session 2, October 7th: Sprint Simulation In this workshop you will build something for a customer using the Scrum process. Through this exercise you will go through each step of the Scrum process and produce the necessary artifacts to be successful in a given Sprint. From building a task board to demonstrating your product to the stakeholders, you will be immersed into the scrum process during the Sprint Simulation.

By the end of this workshop series you'll have a comprehensive understanding of Scrum.

Part of ChickTech’s mission is to retain women in technology. We intend for this event to build community and add skills to resumes. We encourage anyone who wants to practice the Scrum workflow to register for this event!

Dates: September 30th and October 7th

Time: Doors open at 5:30pm and close around 8:30pm. The sessions will run 6-8pm

Location: DeskHub 334 NW 11th Ave Portland, OR 97209

Registration pays for dinner both evenings, along with the class costs. Any amount left over supports ChickTech: High School.

A big thank you to our event location provider, DeskHub!

ChickTech: Career events are open to all genders with a focus on women.
