Write the Docs September 2019: Lean Coffee
Jama Software

Hello Portland (Oregon)-area documentarians! For September, we're going to have a Lean Coffee meetup (9/18 at Jama Software). Based on http://agilecoffee.com/leancoffee/, we'll leave the discussion up to you. As noted on the site, “Lean Coffee is a structured, but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically generated.”

New to Lean Coffee? It's a great way to have real, focused dialogue and we often discuss matters of docs, agile, lean, and such - but anything goes.

Why: The pursuit of technology freedom
Stream: http://pdxlinux.org/live/

I do not think of myself as a big conference goer though I have been to various instantiations of PLUG, OpenSourceBridge, OSCON, CLS, Monitorama, DjangoCon, LinuxCon, Linuxfest Northwest, SCALE, MySQL, FOSDEM, LinuxTag, CeBIT, Systems.de, BSDCan, EuroBSDcon, AsiaBSDCon, OpenCON, bhyveCon, Slackathon, Supercomputing, MeetBSD, NYCBSDCon, InfoBALT, various Latvian events, that IT expo that used to come through Portland and a few I am completely spacing.

At the public prompting of Brian P. Martin, I will discuss why on Earth someone would do such a thing over and over. Including:

How to and why attend

How to and why speak

How to and why exhibit

How to and why organize events

How to put on the best event possible on really short notice

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 1945 NW Quimby St. after the meeting.

Women Who Code Portland - Workshop: Unity 101

This Unity 101 workshop is for developers who are completely new to the Unity game engine. You'll get a basic familiarity with Unity's interface as well as learning the basic workflow of creating games in Unity. We'll then use those concepts to create a simple game.


Although C# is the language used for Unity, we only require that you have some coding experience (in any language) so you can follow along with the basic ideas. We'll be writing some very simple C# code in the workshop, but you will have all the code in digital form beforehand in case some copy/paste is needed.

By the end of the workshop, you should feel comfortable enough with Unity that you can start learning more on your own. You'll know enough about the Unity workflow that you'll have some idea of how to ask the right questions about what you don't know, and where to look for answers.

Thank you Oregon Story Board and DevelopmentNow for sponsoring this event!

Instructions:

If you run into any problems or have questions with the following steps, feel free to message Dylan via Twitter or the Slack for Women Who Code Portland (@mboffin on both). He'll be happy to help get whatever you're running into sorted out before the workshop, so you arrive ready to go.

1) Install the latest version of Unity: https://store.unity.com/download?ref=personal

2) Go here and create a Unity ID: https://id.unity.com/account/new

3) Download the .zip files found in this Google Drive folder: https://goo.gl/9Lqdxo (No Google sign-in required!)

About the Instructors:

Dylan Bennett works in the field of education, teaching students programming and doing IT work. He runs the Portland Unity user group, UnityPDX, and is an officer for the Portland Indie Game Squad (PIGSquad). 

By day, Mo Cohen does functional programming at New Relic. By later day, she is building a point-and-click adventure game called Queer Quest (queermogames.com). And by night time, she's eating Nutella out of the jar.

Women Who Code Portland - Networking Night @ Second Story - "Make It Happen: Improvising, Collaborating, Prototyping"

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.

Portland Data Science Group - Designing Intelligence

Automation is the future of computing and conversational interfaces are the future of human-computer interactions. However, creating these systems requires us to reverse engineer some of the most fundamental aspects of life, which can be difficult and overwhelming — especially if you don’t know where to start. 


 Designing Intelligence will: 
• Help the you understand what’s happening in the artificial intelligence space and where it’s been. 
• Explain why you’ll be making one of these systems sooner than you think. 
• Teach you how to create the products that will thrive in the age of automation. 
• Give you language to help you sell your ideas to your team and bring your dreams to life. This is one talk you’ll regret missing.

Guest Speaker Joe Toscano will be presenting - @realjoet.

Formerly an Experience Designer for R/GA, Joe worked as a consultant for Google, where he and his team oversaw the Google product ecosystem and helped Google take products to market. This meant he and his team had to understand how each product strategically fit within the Google ecosystem now, how each product would evolve, over time, and how the decisions being made by individual teams would affect Google’s larger business goals, as a whole. Understanding this allowed him and his team to be confident that the decisions they were making would strategically move Google’s business forward.

Joe has since left his job at R/GA to pursue writing his book, Designing Intelligence. The book is being written to help people understand the current state of automation, where it's been and where it's going, how to design products that will thrive in the age of automation, and what role we, as technical talent, play in creating an inclusive future through automation. He hopes to help create ethical automation designers who not only understand best practices of making these systems but also understand the impact they'll be making on the world, through automation.

Note the earlier-than-normal start time of 6p.

Portland DevOps Groundup - PDX DevOps Monthly Meetup!

Join us for our monthly gathering to discuss everything from incident response to cross-team collaboration to automation frameworks. Food provided. Please RSVP!

This month: LIGHTNING TALKS!

DevOps Preppers

Sure, the odds of you meeting your demise from a zombie bite are pretty much zero, but pretending it could happen isn’t completely worthless. This talk will walk through how a prepper thinks, how that mindset can be extended via the Incident Command System, and how you can use iICS for non-zombie-based risks.

Tiffany Longworth is a Site Reliability Engineer at Puppet. She has launched successful projects large and small, but has also worked on projects that were spectacular failures! She likes using her background as a Marine, her training as an English teacher, automation, and cat gifs as much as possible.

So you want to switch to microservices?

The hype cycle around microservices often glosses over the real challenges that engineering teams face when trying to migrate away from monolithic applications. In this talk, we'll discuss code architectures and strategies that can help guide your codebase's transition from mono to micro.

Matt Greensmith is the Operations Engineering Manager at Cozy, where's he's responsible for a lot of nouns that end in "ity," like reliability, observability and security. In a past life he was simultaneously a call center rep, a bingo caller and a wedding DJ, so you know he likes to talk.

A Brief History of Schedulers

What do schedulers do for us, how has that changed over time, and why should we care? We'll discuss the historical context that gave rise to early schedulers, and take a look at the state of such tools today.

Kate has been in software engineering for almost a decade, having worked in areas ranging from power grid resiliency to fintech to enterprise software. Kate has managed a variety of teams across the devops spectrum at New Relic and Simple, and is now at HashiCorp helping build tools for other companies and teams to manage their own infrastructure.

What DevOps can teach you about starting a business (and why spreadsheets are everything)

I went from devops to starting a magazine and was happy and dismayed that many of the same skills apply to both. What happens when you don’t have time for structuring databases, building a custom front-end, or maintaining any real code? Well, there’s a lot you can do with a spreadsheet.

Risky Business

As we operate production systems they inevitably fail. As they fail and fail and fail again we as operators start to identify the way they fail and we know the causes of the failures.

Hey everybody. Got a bug you just can't land? Is there a recent CVE you've been eyeballing seductively? Just want to brush up on your APPSEC or OPSEC? Do none of the above questions make any sense, but you're interested in computer security?

PDX Exploit Workshop is the longest running security meetup in Portland (10 years!). It's an open, self driven event for people interested in computer security. Whether you're a novice or career professional, all are welcome. It's always a good time to learn about security!

We spend this dedicated time each week researching and exploring topics of software and hardware security as well as working on personal and group projects. Occasionally we have presentations on our findings. Bring a willingness to learn, a curiosity about security, and/or a specific area of interest to share with others.

This group meets in the PDX Hackerspace mainspace which has comfy seating, deluxe wifi (thanks Kyle!), Club Mate soda in the snack shack, and hackable LED displays to play around with.

PASCAL Hackerspace - Tools That Pwn: A Hacker Symposium

This Saturday at PASCAL we are offering a Hacker Symposium of sorts, featuring a few handy tools of the trade as well as two major frameworks often used in developing exploits and attacking systems or networks. We will be surveying several of the tools that are part of Kali, and easy to install on any Debian derived distro. It seems many folks, sometimes even the professionals already hip deep in the field of tech, are unaware of the power their packages wield! The wild hacker kidz at PASCAL are going to show you how to get started with packaged/pre-loaded tools like Burp Suite, Binwalk, Wireshark, Kismet and will also provide you with an overview of the Metasploit and Volatility frameworks. Come take your first step with Reverse Engineering at PASCAL using Binwalk! Excuse yourself and set up a proxy with Burp Suite! Breath deep and sniff packets with Kismet! Enjoy these puns and more, in person with Cylon and the rest of the misfit hackers of PDX!

We will set aside time to answer questions, and hold demonstrations of each utility discussed. This is all about what YOU want to learn!! Questions? please email Cylon--> [masked]. PASCAL also has a Discord server as means of communication regarding upcoming events, news in infosec and memes (inquire within).
If you RSVP and are no longer able to make it, please do take the time to change your RSVP so that someone else may attend, even if it is only an hour before! Thanks!

PDX People of Color in Tech - ReLAUNCH
1000 SW Broadway

Hi folks! We've been out of commission for a while but we're relaunching! I
I'll be sending out the location soon (suggestions welcome), but I'd like to meet so that we can talk about what we want and need from this Meetup. Tab and I started it to build community and we have done that, a little. We could do so much more!
We could be a hub for job/contract opportunities.
We could have working dates.
We could bid on contracts together.
We can and should help one another to grow and be successful in every way possible. I subscribe to "I am because we are. We are because I am." also known as "Ubuntu".
We’ll be meeting at 1000 SW Broadway. There will be food and drinks, but bring anything you want to share. Lock in that time on your calendar. If you have something special you want to be addressed, email me here or [masked]
one love

PASCAL Hackerspace - Hacking+PASCAL=Hack2Learn
226 SE Madison St

Hack2Learn is a monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to all the various types of challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!
For the first Hack2Learn meetup, we will walk you through the setup process, starting with installing a virtual machine and setting up a beginner friendly Linux environment (Kali counts as beginner friendly, right?), followed by a lightning lesson on command line. Once everyone is ready, we will dive right in to a STEMCTF challenge created by MITRE Cyber Academy. Basic understanding of at least one programming language and/or security concepts is helpful, but not necessary. Honestly, when we say all you need is a desire to learn, we mean it!
If you have a laptop, bring it. We have a handful of loaners for those who need them, as well as several desktop PCs for use at the hackerspace. So, brush off your social anxiety, leave your impostor syndrome at the door, and let your inner hacker take a crack at capture the flag- PASCAL edition!

Questions? email [masked], or leave a comment on the meetup page (though we tend to not check that as often.)

GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!
For the October edition of Hack2Learn, we will be focusing on web and binary challenges. First we will make sure everyone is set up with a virtual machine and the OS of their choice (though Kali is recommended, specifically for the web challenges). For the binary challenges we will install Cutter which is something of an intro to Radare2. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with Cutter and R2 prior to the workshop; take a look--> https://github.com/radareorg/cutter (note: downloading a VM and/or installing a new OS is not necessary for using Cutter when working on the binary challenges, unless you're using Mac OS in which case you will need to spin up a VM for either Windows or Linux).
Basic understanding of at least one programming language and/or security concepts is helpful, but not necessary. Honestly, when we say all you need is a desire to learn, we mean it!
Cylon is setting up a wireless hacking station for October H2L as well, and will be offering some hands-on experience to anyone interested in the wonderful world of wireless hax!
If you have a laptop, bring it. We have a handful of loaners for those who need them, as well as a few desktop PCs for use at the hackerspace. So, brush off your social anxiety, leave your impostor syndrome at the door, and let your inner hacker take a crack at capture the flag!

PASCAL Hackerspace - Hack2Learn: Hackers, Assemble! Pt.2

Hack2Learn: Hackers, Assemble! (Part 2)

Hack2Learn is a bi-monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to all the various types of challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.

During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!

For the next Hack2Learn workshop (yes, we are finally getting this event rolling again!), we will be taking a crack at Assembly-focused CTF (Capture The Flag) challenges: specifically, the PICOCTF2018
Assembly 0-2. MrDe4d will be walking everyone through these challenges, step by step (pun!) so that everyone in attendance will gain theoretical as well as applicable knowledge.
Being able to gain control of system memory is a powerful skill, and is a gateway to understanding memory structure, how data is accessed and processed, how the OS, CPU and programs interface with one another and ultimately how to pwn. A lot of people find Assembly intimidating..and while it may seem daunting and complicated at first glance but, as with any programming language, a grasp of logic as well as dedication to learning are all that are required. In addition to walking you through every step in each challenge, a relatively quick
intro to Assembly will be given, hopefully demystifying it a bit for everyone. MrDe4d will cover basic syntax, instructions and conditions. As we dive deeper into each aspect of the challenges, we will continue to reiterate what has been covered with Assembly- we expect questions to be frequent and recurring. It is absolutely OK to ask the same thing more than once; PASCAL Hack2Learn is a friendly learning environment!
H2L has two major goals: for everyone to capture the flags, and to learn to reverse engineer. This is not a workshop focused on learning a tool, rather it is designed to get attendees thinking logically, critically & to get everyone accustomed to being uncomfortable and not knowing the answer.
In order to participate, attendees will need a computer running either Linux (distro of choice though for this workshop Debian flavors are recommended) or Windows with a VM for Linux, & an install of Cutter 1.7.2 (a Radare2 GUI).

Note: Running Linux is not absolutely necessary when using Cutter. Both Windows and Mac are suitable and Cutter will run fine. Cutter still definitely has a learning curve to it.. fortunately, there is an excellent tutorial/intro on Megabeets.net!

Questions? Email [masked] or get on the PASCAL Discord and interact with other PDX hackers (ask for invite).

PASCAL Hackerspace - Going Commando!
226 SE Madison St

That's right, watch some guy stand up in front of a room of people and go full commando! Whoa, don't get too excited there. I will be wearing clean...ish undergarments. By "going commando", I am referring to conducting any and all of your everyday computing tasks from the command line! Everything from being productive in an office environment to posting the twitters and streamin' the youtubes! Why, you ask? We are all hackers here aren't we? And what hacker doesn't want to look as cool in real life as we do in the movies? So come and enjoy all the typie-typie carpal tunnel goodness!

Joe Cathell (that's Ca-THELL, not cat+hell..even though Joe is something of a crazy cat man) is an infosec professional at the Washington University in St. Louis. When he's not defending our next generation of doctors from Russian hackers (true story, ask him!), he can usually be found at the Arch Reactor Hackerspace. Joe is both a founding member of Arch Reactor and serving as the current president of the board of directors. He is also a co-organizer of the monthly STL2600 and DC314 meetup, as well as a regular presenter. He likes blue raspberry Icees, building robots and competitive butter sculpting.

PASCAL Hackerspace - Defensive Security: what can blue do for you?
226 SE Madison St

Some Teams are Red, Others are Blue, I Play Defense, and So Can You!

An endpoint security primer in three (?-ish) parts.
Part 1: MacOS
Part 2: Windows
Part 3: Linux

Come learn about the other side of the cybersecurity equation: how to raise the bar for attackers trying to pwn your endpoints. This talk series will focus on sane, sensible, and usable defaults; what each operating system can bring to the table; security through proper configuration; and small/medium scale distribution and management.

Part 1: We'll start with a broad overview of securing endpoints, the classes of attacks that might be encountered depending on your use cases, and what it means to be "secure." Then, we'll talk about configuring macOS for reasonable security, beginning with the hardware chain of trust, moving through the bootloader and touching on what Apple's hw/sw integration allows for: Activation Locks, MDM/DEP, and Software Recovery. Moving up the stack, we'll discuss the tiers of built-in macOS software security, and if time permits, several third party options to strengthen endpoint options.

Part 2: Let's kick off with quick refresher on previous topics, and then dive right in to Windows endpoint security. Because of the diversity of hardware, there will be less low-level focus this session, but BitLocker, TPM, and OPAL will be in the mix. Then, learn why Secure Boot is not a conspiracy, how Hyper-V is bae, why Windows 10 is actually the best thing since... earlier Windows 10 releases!, what Group Policy can do for you, and which version of Windows is the minimum necessary for any kind of sanity.

Part 3: In the stolen words of Steve Ballmer, compartmentalize compartmentalize compartmentalize! We'll talk about mitigating inevitable compromise, and then move to Linux security. Coreboot, Heads, and refreshers from PC hardware kick us off, then it's into the wilderness! We'll try and nail down some best practices for the wide and varied world of Linux distros, the security benefits of containers, why Flatpak is awesome, and a quick touch on grsecurity (aka "why we can't have nice things"). If there's time, we'll even try to talk about the security benefits of other nix's like OpenBSD & Qubes.

Part 4: This is unwritten, unplanned and unscheduled, but part 4 (and 5, and beyond!) could include topics like:
- hypervisors! and why trying to share memory has yet to be a good idea;
- how to do your best to secure them anyway;
- how and why you should deploy hardened and/or minimum viable configurations automatically (ansible, JAMF, AD/SCCM...)

This is intended as a high-level overview to get a baseline for each of the three operating systems; content will change and grow based on feedback and requests. Come help me evolve my endpoint security game, and steer the course for future events!

This series is brought to you by PASCAL Hackerspace, and presented by Magneto (the hacker, not the mutant...ok well, he could* be a mutant for all we know...)
Magneto is: prototyping the future. trying to kill sleep. Security analysis and automation for profit. Other security-related things for fun. Obtuse prose. Dream job: Starship Captain. There's a reason for the nickname.

It is absolutely OK to ask the same thing more than once; PASCAL Hack2Learn is a friendly learning environment!
H2L has two major goals: for everyone to capture the flags, and to learn to reverse. This is not a workshop focused on learning a tool (though we do use Cutter), rather it is designed to get attendees thinking logically, critically & to get everyone accustomed to being uncomfortable and not knowing the answer.
As we will be focusing on microcorruption CTF challenges for the next several workshops, it is not necessary to have Cutter or any other debugger installed. Microcorruption has its own web based debugger that is very easy to learn and use!

PASCAL Hackerspace - Defensive Security: what can blue do for you?
226 SE Madison St

Some Teams are Red, Others are Blue, I Play Defense, and So Can You!

An endpoint security primer in three (?-ish) parts.
Part 1: MacOS
Part 2: Windows
Part 3: Linux

Come learn about the other side of the cybersecurity equation: how to raise the bar for attackers trying to pwn your endpoints. This talk series will focus on sane, sensible, and usable defaults; what each operating system can bring to the table; security through proper configuration; and small/medium scale distribution and management.

Part 1: We'll start with a broad overview of securing endpoints, the classes of attacks that might be encountered depending on your use cases, and what it means to be "secure." Then, we'll talk about configuring macOS for reasonable security, beginning with the hardware chain of trust, moving through the bootloader and touching on what Apple's hw/sw integration allows for: Activation Locks, MDM/DEP, and Software Recovery. Moving up the stack, we'll discuss the tiers of built-in macOS software security, and if time permits, several third party options to strengthen endpoint options.

Part 2: Let's kick off with quick refresher on previous topics, and then dive right in to Windows endpoint security. Because of the diversity of hardware, there will be less low-level focus this session, but BitLocker, TPM, and OPAL will be in the mix. Then, learn why Secure Boot is not a conspiracy, how Hyper-V is bae, why Windows 10 is actually the best thing since... earlier Windows 10 releases!, what Group Policy can do for you, and which version of Windows is the minimum necessary for any kind of sanity.

Part 3: In the stolen words of Steve Ballmer, compartmentalize compartmentalize compartmentalize! We'll talk about mitigating inevitable compromise, and then move to Linux security. Coreboot, Heads, and refreshers from PC hardware kick us off, then it's into the wilderness! We'll try and nail down some best practices for the wide and varied world of Linux distros, the security benefits of containers, why Flatpak is awesome, and a quick touch on grsecurity (aka "why we can't have nice things"). If there's time, we'll even try to talk about the security benefits of other nix's like OpenBSD & Qubes.

Part 4: This is unwritten, unplanned and unscheduled, but part 4 (and 5, and beyond!) could include topics like:
- hypervisors! and why trying to share memory has yet to be a good idea;
- how to do your best to secure them anyway;
- how and why you should deploy hardened and/or minimum viable configurations automatically (ansible, JAMF, AD/SCCM...)

This is intended as a high-level overview to get a baseline for each of the three operating systems; content will change and grow based on feedback and requests. Come help me evolve my endpoint security game, and steer the course for future events!

This series is brought to you by PASCAL Hackerspace, and presented by Magneto (the hacker, not the mutant...ok well, he could* be a mutant for all we know...)
Magneto is: prototyping the future. trying to kill sleep. Security analysis and automation for profit. Other security-related things for fun. Obtuse prose. Dream job: Starship Captain. There's a reason for the nickname.

PASCAL Hackerspace - Hack2Learn: Hackers, Assemble!
226 SE Madison St

**NOTE**

While we will continue to work on the microcorruption CTF for the next several Hack2Learn workshops, the next meetup we are going to take a side quest and focus on a very special challenge involving hardware. It will be our first crack at embedded device security as a group. For more details- come see PASCAL next Thursday!

END NOTE

Hack2Learn is a bi-monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to various types of reverse engineering and binary challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!

For the next several Hack2Learn workshops, we will be taking a crack at Assembly-focused CTF (Capture The Flag) and reversing challenges, specifically microcorruption. MrDe4d will start by giving a short presentation on a particular aspect of the theory behind ASM (last time we talked about ISRs in MSP430 MCUs). The goal of the presentation prior to the challenge is to (hopefully) help everyone in attendance to gain theoretical as well as practical knowledge.
Being able to gain control of system memory is a powerful skill, and is a gateway to understanding memory structure, how data is accessed and processed, how the OS, CPU and programs interface with one another and ultimately how to pwn. Throughout the series we will cover basic syntax, instructions, conditions, and more! As we dive deeper into each aspect of the challenges, we will continue to reiterate what has been covered with Assembly- we expect questions to be frequent and recurring.

DefSec 0x05: Ansible, Part 1

Dive deep into the Dirac Sea...of security automation!

Let's talk about Ansible (the RedHat automation/configuration management tool, not the scifi FTL machine). To quote a different introductory course, "Ansible is an automation and configuration management technology used to provision, deploy, and manage compute infrastructure across cloud, virtual, and physical environments." This initial session will focus on:
- a high-level overview of what Ansible is
- how it works
- beginning to use Ansible via ad-hoc commands
- reasoning + planning about tasks -> playbooks -> roles
- how you might deploy it at scale
- and finally, as time permits: hands on with playbooks!

Part 2 of this talk (coming soon!) will focus on a practical application of Ansible, namely deploying the Ubuntu Linux CIS benchmark against multiple virtual machines for hardening purposes.

This series is brought to you by PASCAL Hackerspace, and presented by Magneto (the hacker, not the mutant. Probably.) He does security analysis and automation for profit, and systems thinking and other security-related things for fun. Uses obtuse prose. Talks fast and loud. Dreams of eliminating sleep. Protoypes the future.

We will go through some live custom examples using humangeo's dvf pluggin, we will use postgis and output geojson, geocsv and topojson to add to our leaflet maps, and also discuss some temporal mapping tools.

Bring your laptop with leaflet installed and a webserver available. Have a server scripting language such as php or python and postgressql/postgis installed. If you don't have a laptop, come anyway and you will be able to see these tools in action, as well as receive any materials handed out at the meetup. Bring a flash drive so you can take a copy of the data home.

Programming Open Source Web Spatio-Temporal Mapping Visualizations
Anna Bannanas Cafe, St Johns

This month at MaptimeStJohns, we will begin programming a basic web spatio-temporal visualization, bring a computer if you have one. Ill bring the js library files for leaflet and the various plugins we will be using. If you have a temporal dataset, bring it... Ill have a couple of datasets to choose from though. Our goal will be for everyone to create at least one temporal point visualizations. An example would be the point locations of where floods occurred with the location, size of flood and date of flood event. With this data we could create a temporal proportional symbol map. The user will be able to click on the locations for specific locations and also use a slider to see when and where floods occurred over time. Let's create some cool web map visualizations!

In June, we worked on creating a basic static map of floods with custom icons showing the size of the floods (a proportional symbol flood map). We went through a demo for using a slider to add amimation to a map... using the flood data it would allow users to see where and when the floods appeared.

In July, I'll bring a completed example of a proportional symbol animated slider flood map that we will review. In addition, we will add one or two other techniques for developing spatio-temporal web visualizations (in leaflet and open layers). Then we will begin using Postgresql/postgis to setup spatial databases, populate them and perform spatial analysis operations.One of our long term goals will be to eventually use data from a spatial database in dynamic spatio-temporal visualizations.

In July, bring your computer. If you have time prior to the meeting, load postgresql/postgis version 9.1 or later onto your computer.

Open Source Hardware Users Group discussion
Backspace

There are people who get really excited about building hardware and Open Source. There are a few holes in the stack, and as a community we can get started on fundamental tools that will make things easier for all of us. Some topics that came up in the session on Saturday.

The tools for programming FPGA's are all proprietary let's design an open source FPGA, most of the patents are running out soon.

There are open source 3d modeling tools, but will they tell you where the center of gravity of your amature rocket is? That's an important thing to know when it passes mach 1.

Radio is awesome.

Look for an "Art of Community" book, or a tshirt that says "free as in freedom" amongst the dorkbot crowd to find the discussion. Don't worry if you miss this meeting there isn't even a listserv up yet it's a meeting of convenience as many of the people from Saturday's discussion are going to be at DorkBot anyways.

Portland Java User Group (PJUG) - Social Night
Base Camp Brewing

This meeting will be a little different. There will be no microphones or projectors but everyone is encouraged to talk about a project they find interesting or show something they're building. Participation is totally optional but we hope to hear about any side projects you're working on, because a lot of times the most interesting things we build are built when we're supposed to be doing something else!

Presentations are intended to be brief 5-10 minute talks.

Agenda:

• How to build a mashup using data on recreation.gov (http://recreation.gov/)

• How to learn business acumen by freelancing software dev skills

If you've got something you'd like to talk about, send us a direct message so we can add it to the agenda.

Portland HashiCorp User Group - AWS Deployments and FinOps
Cloudability

Agenda:

6pm-6:30pm Arrive and mingle - Enjoy food and beverages

6:30pm-7pm "Reducing Cost & Risk via Automation with Terraform on AWS" presented by Chris Dunlap- Sr. Solution Engineer @ HashiCorp

Terraform is a tool for building, changing, and versioning infrastructure safely and efficiently. This talk will focus on how customers can leverage Terraform to eliminate unnecessary cloud spend by 30-40% and reduce risk by baking guardrails and best practices into their automation.

7pm-7:30pm "Intelligent decisions about cloud usage with Cloudability’s FinOps platform" presented by Patrick Zumar- Senior SE @ Cloudability

A new operating model for the cloud, called FinOps, is emerging that enables a shift — a combination of systems, best practices and culture — to increase an organization’s ability to understand cloud costs and make tradeoffs. In the same way that DevOps revolutionized development by breaking down silos and increasing agility, FinOps increases the business value of cloud by bringing together technology, business and finance professionals with a new set of processes.

FinOps has several fundamental building blocks we’ve seen high performing organizations put in place to gain competitive advantage. Patrick Zumar will share what we’ve learned from guiding hundreds of large and small cloud adopters on their journey to adopt FinOps.

Two talks this month, jam-packed with mapping goodness:

When Google Maps Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade - Wm Leler - @wmleler

Google Maps has long been the choice for embedding maps on your website, or building map mashups. But Google's recent announcement that they will start charging for maps (or including ads on maps) has people looking at other options. As an added bonus, many of the alternative solutions have significant advantages over Google Maps. If you are a website owner with an embedded simple map, this talk will show you how you can dump Google Maps and switch over to other solutions in minutes (both free and paid). If you are a web designer, you'll see how you can customize maps so they will look the way you want them to look, not the way Google wants them to look. If you are a programmer building map-based webapps, you'll see how open source mapping APIs like Leaflet and Modest Maps make it faster and easier to build map mashups and have them work the way you want.

Bio - Wm is a principal engineer at Flightstats, where he draws lots of airplanes, airports, weather, and other things on maps, and a Fellow at the Banff Centre for the Arts, where he has worked with some amazing artists on web-based, virtual reality, and location-based mobile projects

MapBox - Justin Miller - @incanus77.

Justin is all things iOS for the MapBox team. He'll be joining us again to show us what MapBox has been up to lately (and they've been busy) including their strategy in the Google Maps space, their new iOS SDK, MapBox streets layer, custom styled maps, what Artem from Mapnik is doing now that he's joined the team and what they're doing with open source in general. Something for everyone and a great follow-up to Wm's talk.

Bio - Justin brings a wealth of mobile application development experience to MapBox. He has expertise in client-side programming on the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, as well as server-side programming and administration on UNIX platforms.

This month: CartoDB Hack Session

this month we don't have a talk lined up so we thought we would shake things up a little bit and do a little hack session as a group with one of the newer kids on the block, CartoDB. It's data management, map styling/publishing and an API for vector/raster spatial queries all rolled into one without needing to muck with server management. A researchers dream and built on open source goodness. What's that you say you're not a software developer? Perfect because you don't need to be to get started. We can roll up our sleeves and work together, ask lots of silly questions and learn lots of new things.

They offer a free account and tutorial to get started. Should be fun, see you tomorrow.

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

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.

Hackerspace activities encompass Hardware, Software, Crafting/Textiles, all the Realities (Real, Virtual and Augmented), Infosec, Audio/Video, Cryptocurrencies, Gaming, you name it - if it's technology then it's in scope. Our Hackerspace is a place where people with an interest in computing or technology can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. There is plenty of table space, bandwidth and 3D printers (for those looking to try that out). Bring your ideas, works in progress, or something to show off. We'll see you there!

CTRL-H - PDX Hackerspace - Open Hack Night!
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

This Friday's Open Hack Night is a little different. We hope you all can join us!

===============================================

Wild Me is a Portland non-profit that uses artificial intelligence to study endangered species. Right now, they’re performing a country-wide census of Grevy’s zebras and reticulated giraffes in Kenya called the Great Grevy’s Rally using nothing but photographs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLw_I1ghvLM

Hundreds of Kenyan tourists, biologists, and citizen scientists helped by taking all of these photos, but now their A.I. needs our help. They are teaching the A.I. to better identify zebras and giraffes in photos through a nice web interface where humans look at pretty pictures and match animals. Every decision we make will either make the population estimate go up or down, directly influencing the count! We'll see lots of original photos of African wildlife, genuinely help with conservation and science in Kenya, and maybe learn a thing or two about machine learning, computer vision, and convolutional neural nets in the process.

For your scientific contributions, there will be pizza!

If you want to join us in training A.I. for wildlife conservation — or if you just want to look at lots of pictures of zebras and giraffes while eating pizza — please bring a device that can connect to WiFi and run a Chrome or Safari web browser. Wild Me's non-profit staff will be here to hang out, participate, and guide us along.

Part hackathon, part geek social, these biweekly meetings are a time for you to come join others for insight, inspiration or just insanity.

Bring your toys for others to see, or come see what others have been painstakingly chipping away at in their spare time.

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

CTRL-H - PDX Hackerspace - Open Hack Night!
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

Every Second Friday is Open Hack Night here at ^H. Come hangout with us at the most happening (and productive) place in town! Hackerspace activities encompass Hardware, Software, Crafting/Textiles, all the Realities (Real, Virtual and Augmented), Infosec, Audio/Video, Cryptocurrencies, Gaming, you name it - if it's technology then it's in scope. Our Hackerspace is a place where people with an interest in computing or technology can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. There is plenty of table space, bandwidth and 3D printers (for those looking to try that out). Bring your ideas, works in progress, or something to show off. We'll see you there!

CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

Hey everybody. Got a bug you just can't land? Is there a recent CVE you've been eyeballing seductively? Just want to brush up on your APPSEC or OPSEC? Do none of the above questions make any sense, but you're interested in computer security?

PDX Exploit Workshop is the longest running security meetup in Portland (10 years!). It's an open, self driven event for people interested in computer security. Whether you're a novice or career professional, all are welcome. It's always a good time to learn about security!

We spend this dedicated time each week researching and exploring topics of software and hardware security as well as working on personal and group projects. Occasionally we have presentations on our findings. Bring a willingness to learn, a curiosity about security, and/or a specific area of interest to share with others.

This group meets in the PDX Hackerspace mainspace which has comfy seating, deluxe wifi (thanks Kyle!), Club Mate soda in the snack shack, and hackable LED displays to play around with.

See you there!

Hey everybody. Got a bug you just can't land? Is there a recent CVE you've been eyeballing seductively? Just want to brush up on your APPSEC or OPSEC? Do none of the above questions make any sense, but you're interested in computer security?

PDX Exploit Workshop is the longest running security meetup in Portland (10 years!). It's an open, self driven event for people interested in computer security. Whether you're a novice or career professional, all are welcome. It's always a good time to learn about security!

We spend this dedicated time each week researching and exploring topics of software and hardware security as well as working on personal and group projects. Occasionally we have presentations on our findings. Bring a willingness to learn, a curiosity about security, and/or a specific area of interest to share with others.

This group meets in the PDX Hackerspace mainspace which has comfy seating, deluxe wifi (thanks Kyle!), Club Mate soda in the snack shack, and hackable LED displays to play around with.

See you there!

CTRL-H - PDX Hackerspace - 101 Intro to Ableton Live -- All are Welcome! Bring Questions or Just Show Up.
CTRLH - PDX Hackerspace

This class is meant to give each participant a decent introduction to Ableton Live. Class takes place in the crafts room @ Ctrl-H This is a 101 class, so no previous experience is necessary. Intended audience is anyone interested in using their computer for making music. I'm happy to adjust the class to participants needs or take more in depth questions after the introduction during the Q&A.

I've trained as a sound engineer with the guy who engineered Michael Jackson's Thriller album. I've been using Ableton Live since version 3 in 2003, and have produced 43 albums of "music"? using it. http://cainmac.bandcamp.com

Bring your own computer with Ableton Live installed, or download the 30-day trial copy at:
https://www.ableton.com/en/trial/

Class is open to anyone and always free to attend.

Open Source Bridge Content Committee Meeting
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

The Open Source Bridge Content team is ready to kick off 2009 with a meeting on Tuesday, January 13, 7pm at Cubespace.

We'll be going over our content areas, reviewing our initial call for papers, talking about our philosophy for the conference and assigning leads for each of the content areas.

We're looking for people who can coordinate the activities of a few people in review committees, can commit to 10-15 hours of reviewing and responding time over the next two months. We figure we'll have 3-4 in-person meetings before we finalize acceptance of presentations on April 1!

Anything else you're interested in chatting about? Send it to the list, and we'll make an agenda.

Several people may retire to a nearby bar for #afterhours hacking.

Let us know if you can make it!

Portland F# Meetup Group - Organizational Meeting
DAT

I need to double-check with the location's availability still, but I'm pretty sure they'll be able to accommodate us.  I'll also have an update with instructions on how to enter the building after hours.

At this meetup, we need to identify and empower a new organizational team. 


I'm recommending that we have four active members with the privileges to schedule and conduct meetups.  This should distribute the burden of identifying topics, picking dates and times and securing locations in such a way that we capture productivity at the moment of inspiration and not obligation.  If that last bit didn't make sense, come to the meetup and I'll explain how that works.

Open Source Bridge is an open source developer and maker conference, focused on bringing people from a range of technology backgrounds together to share our knowledge and explore what it means to be an open source citizen.

For our 9th year, we’re changing things up a little, given the political, cultural, and economic crossroads we find ourselves at right now. We’ve added a new track to explore how activists are using technology, how open source communities are supporting activists, and how other open source and activist communities intersect. To encourage new connections, we’re also holding a project night in the Hacker Lounge to partner with community groups and individual projects looking for new contributors and adding a Community Organizer track to our Friday Unconference day.

Portland Javascript Magic Night - Monthly Meeting
Epicodus

Rock, Paper, Scissors

Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to generate a program that plays a game of rock 0, paper 1, or scissors 2. no random functions allowed! the program should be entirely deterministic. (in other words if your program plays against the same opponent program more than once the sequence of moves should be the same.) your program will receive a list of your opponent's previous moves, your previous moves, and the round number; there will be 1000 rounds per match. The tournament will be round robin format, the program with the greatest number of victories will be declared the rock paper scissors champion.

PDX Magic Night

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.

PLUG Advanced Topics: IPv6 Networking Part 1
Free Geek

PLUG Advanced Topics April Meeting

IPv6 Networking with Ted Mittelstaedt: Part 1

The first in a multi-part series on IPv6 networking by Ted Mittelstaedt, the author of The FreeBSD Corporate Networker's Guide.

Part 1: Theory & management & ISP routing, as well as current events in the IPv6 realm. For example, did you know that Nortel just sold Microsoft a huge chunk of IPv4 legacy addresses for something like 7 million dollars? This has really turned the tables on the game. Up until that happened the thought in the community was that the large ISP's would be the biggest pushers of IPv6 deployment. But this is an early indicator of what's going to happen. The large ISPs are going to spend millions in vacuuming every scrap of IPv4 out of all the corners on the Internet before they will start pushing their users to go to IPv6. That is a serious problem for any small ISP that does not have a stock of IPv4 because they will be run out of numbers and new customers will not be interested in their IPv6 offerings as long as the large ISPs still are handing IPv4 out.

Free Geek

This month's meeting will be a roundtable discussion about modern web serving.

The CGI.pl/ODBC era gave way to LAMP and we're now onto the next generation:

  • node.js and NoSQL make LAMP overkill for many situations

  • AJAX/JavaScript are moving much application logic to the browser

  • Apache is giving way to lighttpd, node.js, nginx and others

  • We've gone from 9" Mac support to 1024 X 768 and now to 4" phones

  • URL Shorteners. Who would have thought?

  • Users now routinely block ads, scripting and Flash

  • Apple has declared war on Flash!

  • HTML 5 and CSS 3 are starting to appear in the wild

  • Security is finally coming first, not last

How have these factors changed the way you serve web content?

Are the fundamental problems being solved and making your job easier?

Please share your experiences at this roundtable and bring your questions.

PLUG Advanced Topics: Vyatta
Free Geek

Linux has been used for network routing for many years, but the interface is different than the standard network appliances. Vyatta is a Debian based distribution that provides an open command line interface that looks like Cisco or Juniper. The command line is built on top of standard bash shell with extensible template language.

This talk will go into the history of Vyatta, where it came from and how it is used today. For those who want to contribute or modify, it will also cover the internals of how this implemented.

Stephen Hemminger is a software engineer working remotely in Portland for Vyatta. He has been involved with Linux networking for 8 years and currently maintains bridging and routing utilities. Steve regularly presents at Linux conferences.

PLUG Advanced Topics: Recoupling Computer Science and Computing
Free Geek

The Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics meeting

Recoupling Computer Science and Computing

A talk and roundtable discussion

There is no question that hybrid telecommunication/computing appliances like those running iOS and Android have put more open source software into the hands of users than any other effort to date but vendors and carriers consistently choose user control over user freedom. While many users and vendors will argue that "people want their systems to 'just work'", intentional and unintentional decoupling of the user computing experiences from the underlying computer science is the norm, despite the fact that developers and systems administrators are equally lazy and "want their systems to 'just work'".

Because no technical barrier exists between these two experiences of a given system, this talk will explore the historic and modern systems that provide the best balance of user and developer experience and open up to a roundtable discussion of other such systems and how to bridge these two experiences and foster computer science in society.

Please be prepared to talk about your experiences, particularly on platforms like Android and web frameworks which can offer full-stack access to sources yet deliver a competitive user experience.

See you there!

flashrd+nsh: OpenBSD imaging and easy configuration for network appliances and virtual environments

Installation, upgrade and configuration are important, practical functions. OpenBSD's reputation for advanced networking functionality is second only to its reputation for having a tight knit development community which considers these functions first and foremost a convenience for developers.

In this session, we'll discuss the use and application of the flashrd and nsh tools for creating networking system images catered to deployment by IT staff, consultants and OEMs. We'll also discuss OpenBSD networking features and applications that can be instrumented by nsh, and discuss any general OpenBSD features and history, as desired by you, the participants.

Chris Cappuccio is a systems and network architect, with 16 years of experience starting as a Unix system administrator, followed up with extensive IP, DSL, wireless and SS7 network deployment and operation. Chris owns and operates Yellowknife, a wireless network provider covering thousands of square miles of unserved and underserved areas with high performance Internet access. He has been a part-time contributor to networking and driver services in the OpenBSD operating system for 14 years.

Stream: http://pdxlinux.org/live

Software-Defined Radio Hack Session

Want to get into software-defined radio hacking but don't know where to start? Bring your laptop and an RTL-SDR dongle, HackRF, BladeRF, USRP, or other SDR hardware to this hack session and get expert help.

Jared Boone and Kenny McElroy will be on hand to help install and configure software and explain concepts. Do try to install GNU Radio on your computer before you come, since it can be a long, slow process. If you get into trouble, we will do their best to get you unstuck. For those who come with GNU Radio already functional, we will advise you on things to experiment with. If you do not already own a software-defined radio, purchasing an RTL-SDR dongle from HackerWarehouse.com or NooElec.com is recommended. They are quite inexpensive ($15 to $20) but very functional and a great way to get started in software-defined radio.

Bring some radio-based toys to hack on! If you can't make this meeting, be sure to watch Calagator, where Jared and Kenny will be starting an SDR meetup in the next few weeks.

Jared Boone has an ongoing obsession with software-defined radio. He helped with the design and coding of the HackRF SDR and has done some privacy-related work, particularly around automotive tire pressure monitors. He is a frequent user of GNU Radio, baudline, and radio signal processing techniques.

Kenny McElroy is a computer security researcher, focused on improving understanding and visualization of how the ones and zeros of computer security move around in the real world.

Organizer's Notes: Ham Radio Outlet in Tigard has a number of good magazines including the July/August QEX which features an article on GNU Radio. You may also want to read:
