New Relic FutureTalks PDX - Distributed Tracing: Next Steps
New Relic

Please join us on Monday, November 5 for our next installment of FutureTalks! This month, we'll be joined by Google Software Engineer Jaana B. Dogan for a discussion about Distributed Tracing.

Distributed tracing is a golden tool but it is too hard for the newcomers. We need more consensus from the industry in order to improve things and make distributed tracing a common tool. In this talk, we will cover some of the critical use cases of distributed tracing and discuss the gaps in efforts and standardization.

Doors will open at 5:30pm with light appetizers and drinks and networking. The program will begin at 6pm, and conclude with a Q&A session around 7:00pm.

About our speaker: Jaana B. Dogan works on making Google production services more monitorable and debuggable. Previously, she worked on the Go programming language at Google and has a decade-long experience in building developer platforms and tools. Jaana can be found online @rakyll.

FutureTalk with Sandi Metz
New Relic

An exploration of the purpose of rules ...

We're iconoclasts who reject arbitrary constraints yet long for understandable, predictable, changeable applications. We want code that follows rules yet we refuse to let rules to get in our way. We're deeply attached to the little rules that help get things done (No trailing whitespace! Indent using two spaces!) and despise the big, complicated ones that impose one-size-fits-all straitjackets on otherwise sane programming problems.

This talk proposes 5 'little' rules for writing object-oriented code. These rules are determinedly simple yet produce code that experts love and novices can be trusted to change; they fill the space between anarchy and order with practical, common sense. The rules guide without impeding, help without hindering and constrain without binding, and let you create applications that are easy to change and fun to work their whole life long.

This is the 4th event in a series of free monthly FutureTalks from disruptive Developers, innovative Technologists and world-changing Creatives. Doors open at 5:30p for food, drinks and networking. The presentation will begin right at 6p.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Sandi Metz is a programmer. In the past 30+ years she has written innumerable applications, many of which are still running today. Dealing with long lived applications has left her deeply biased towards practical solutions that produce working software that is easy to change. She is also someone who explains things, but has difficulty speaking without drawing on the whiteboard and feels inarticulate unless the conversation includes at least three colors. She believes in simplicity; simple code, and straightforward explanations, and strives for it in her code and in her writing.

You can follow her on Twitter @sandimetz or at sandimetz.com

PDX Python and Pyladies PDX Present Monthly Presentation Night
New Relic

Come join us for Pythonic talks!

This month, we're proud to present talks covering both advanced and beginner-friendly topics.

Thanks to our speakers Emily Cain and Allan Feldman!

Emily Cain Purrsistent Debugging

One of the most important skills for a software developer is debugging. How do we approach debugging? What tools do we learn? What skills are involved, and what habits do we pick up as we learn them? How do we teach and communicate about these skills?

In this talk, programmer, writer, and technology educator Emily Cain will explore these issues. Beginners will learn about key tools like PDB and the browser's debugger, as well as learning to inspect code and function outputs to look for patterns. Meanwhile, more advanced coders will learn techniques for understanding and discussing these skills, and gain a better perspective on how to help their more junior colleagues advance beyond the "Googling StackOverflow" stage of debugging. And everyone will get to look at adorable pictures of a particularly dedicated cat as she "debugs" her way into an infinite supply of snacks.

Allan Feldman Reference cycles: what are they, how to detect them, and how to fix them

Let's talk about garbage! Ever had a long-running Python process whose memory usage seemed to grow over time? In this talk, Allan Feldman, Senior Software Engineer at New Relic, dives into Python internals to show how reference cycles can happen, how to find them in your code, and how to fix a cycle once found. You'll never look at garbage the same way again!

We'll also open things up for some 3-5 minute Lightning Talks afterward. Are you working on something cool or did you discover a new tool or package? Get up and talk about it!

Submit proposals for talks here: http://bit.ly/portland-python-proposals

All speakers and attendees must follow our code of conduct: http://www.meetup.com/pdxpython/pages/Code_of_Conduct/

Join us after the meetup at Bailey's taproom at 213 SW Broadway to continue the discussion over a beverage.

New Relic FutureTalks PDX - Team health assessments: a way to understand yourself and improve all the things
New Relic

Join us on Monday, May 14 for the next edition of FutureTalks featuring New Relic employees Brent Miller and Honey Darling unpacking the "Team Health Assessment" — an organizational practice we've just undertaken as part of our commitment to continual reinvention which will help us understand how teams work and how product is built at New Relic.

The best human achievements are team efforts. How do you know if your teams are healthy? It’s a complex problem, with no easy answers. Two years into a seemingly successful agile transformation at New Relic, we found ourselves wondering how well our teams had taken to the new system, and didn’t really know. We knew that execution was much improved. What we didn’t know was why. Did our leadership all magically turn into serious taskmasters? Did our engineers seriously level up? Did our product managers start making perfect decisions? In order to find out, we crafted a set of team health standards, conducted a facilitated self-assessment with each team, and then asked each team to put together a plan to improve their health. We learned a lot along the way, about how to understand team health, and also about the shape, function, and dysfunction within our org.

In this talk we will share our journey, help you understand how to create psychological safety around a team health assessment, and show the kinds of things that we learned about the org. We will examine the project from a high-level project flow perspective, from an organizational change perspective, and share one team’s experiences on the ground.

Doors will open at 5:30 for networking with light food and drink before the program starts at 6pm. The program will conclude with a Q&A around 7:00pm.
