TwitchPDX - Gaming at Quarterworld!
Quarterworld!

We had a blast last time we met up at Quarterworld, so we figured we'd do it again! It's a great arcade with good seating to hang out and play some handhelds or card games when you're cooling down from pinball and arcade cabinets. :)

Feel free to bring your favorite board/card game, or a 3DS/Playstation Vita to play with others! We'll eat some food, get to know each other, and have a good time. Admission to Quarterworld is $1 at that time, so make sure you're prepared to pay that when you arrive. 


Looking forward to seeing you! Get ready for some great times.

Don't forget; if you like these Meetups, you can help support the group and keep them free for everyone by chipping in!

I want to work for NAVEX Global w/David Nash (powered by FREE PIZZA)!
REGUS

For November, we have David Nash as our very special guest.
This is the last meetup for the year as we will be taking a winter/holiday break in December.
So make sure you join us and learn from a Product Management legend in Portland!

Here's David's self-introduction:
"Since arriving here in ’92 from New York, Portland has been very, very good to me. Like the TV commercial says, ‘I know a few things because I’ve seen a few things’. I would add that I’ve been blessed to meet some amazing people along the way. I came here courtesy of Intel, where I worked for some 17 years, and where I had the good fortune to reinvent myself several times: from motherboards to software-video & telecom, from Intel Labs, to venture investing and internal startups, I did everything I could to try new things, soak it all in, and become versatile. After leaving Intel in 2006, I spent 10 years at ADP Dealer Services (now known as CDK Global) where we built software for Automotive Retailers & OEMs. Last October – just about 1 year ago – I had the amazing good fortune to join NAVEX Global, who provides the world’s most comprehensive Ethics & Compliance SaaS platform – and has the inspiring mission of helping organizations protect their people, reputation, and bottom line. Our mission really speaks to me because, as a Boy Scout Leader for 25 years, I care a lot about integrity and being a servant leader. In addition to networking relentlessly along the way, I’ve also followed my passion in Product Management and created ProductCamp Portland in 2012. We’re running our 7th camp in March 2018. This one will be exciting for sure. And free pizza as usual!

Portland Startup Founder 101 - Future of Blockchain: Interactive Chat w/ the Co-Founder of Ethereum & Decentral
Online Webinar

-- This is a live and interactive online event. To get access and RSVP, visit https://events.genndi.com/register/169105139238452470/a38dd0642f --

Blockchain technology, and the larger "decentralization" movement, has the potential to change the world in ways we haven't seen since the beginning of the internet. We are only in the first wave of blockchain-powered technologies and financing models, and already many sectors are being disrupted —from marketing to manufacturing, from healthcare to energy, from law to accounting, and from venture capital to even music.

Savvy entrepreneurs are leveraging the blockchain in preparation for a decentralized world, and on this special, interactive online event, you can hear from one of the world's foremost experts in the space (and ask questions).

This live event will be hosted by Adeo Ressi (Founder & CEO of the Founder Institute), and feature special guest Anthony Di Iorio.

Anthony Di Iorio is a serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, community organizer, and thought leader in the field of digital currencies, blockchain and decentralized technologies. In 2014, he co-founded the smart contract project Ethereum, which is now the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency valued at $30 billion. Anthony’s entire blockchain and cryptocurrencies investments have earned him a place on the Forbes list of the Richest In Cryptocurrency.

Anthony is also the founder and CEO of Decentral (http://decentral.ca), a Toronto-based innovation hub and software development company focused on decentralized technologies, and Jaxx (https://jaxx.io), a digital asset wallet that empowers millions of people to control their digital lives. These two organizations recently partnered with the Founder Institute to launch the "Blockchain Founder Syndicate" (https://fi.co/join/blockchain), an initiative to help budding entrepreneurs launch 20 promising companies that leverage blockchain by 2019.

On this webinar we will discuss:
- What's true about blockchain, and what is hype
- The different types of businesses and societal problems blockchain can help address
- How entrepreneurs can leverage blockchain in all types of businesses, and how to get started
- The future of blockchain, and where the evolution of the technology is headed

We hope you will join us!

-- RESERVE A SPOT [limited space]: https://events.genndi.com/register/169105139238452470/a38dd0642f --

** Even if you can't make the live webinar, everyone who registers for the event will receive an audio & video recording approximately 72 hours after the event

Portland AWS User Group - Amazon Sumerian - Create and Host Immersive AR and VR Content for the 3D Web
KinderCare Education

Please join us for the next Portland AWS User Group Meetup on Thursday, November 8, hosted by KinderCare Education.

TOPIC: Amazon Sumerian - Create and Host Immersive AR and VR Content for the 3D Web, using only a Web Browser.

Presenters:
• Dennis Baker, KinderCare Education

• Kyle Roche, General Manager, Amazon Sumerian

Schedule:

• 6:00 PM: Check-in and Happy Hour

• 6:30 PM: Demo and Deep Dive

• 7:45 PM: Q&A

A special thanks to our host KinderCare Education. Headquartered in Portland, KinderCare Education is an experience-based provider of early education and child care, serving 170,000 children and their families across the country every day.

https://aws.amazon.com/sumerian/
http://www.kc-education.com/

Details:
Take yourself back to 1998, when the first websites were being built. What tool did they use? For many it was a tool like Dreamweaver: expensive, complex, on-premise software. Fast forward to 2018. What do people use now? Tools like Wordpress, Wix, Weebly and Shopify. These tools are cloud-based, pay-as-you-go, and simple yet powerful. Content creation for the 3D web (including AR and VR) is high friction today. Businesses have devices and problems to solve but the content creation tools feel like we’re stuck in the 90’s.

Kyle Roche, GM of AR/VR at Amazon Web Services, will discuss how AWS leverages their cloud offerings to simplify content creation for the 3D web. Amazon Sumerian allows non-3D experts to create AR and VR content using only a web browser. Content can be easily published to end-users who then decide how they want to consume the experience. Learn how you can develop dynamic, immersive customer engagements that can experienced via advertising signage, in-store retail displays, websites, mobile devices, or VR headsets. With Sumerian, you can build once and publish widely.

CHIFOO (Computer Human Interaction Forum of Oregon) - CHIFOO Event: Researching Smart + Spatial Computing
Connective DX

CHIFOO presents: Researching Smart + Spatial Computing with Hannah Scurfield!

Understanding how humans will react and engage with new and emerging platforms can be challenging, particularly with smart and spatial computing. These types of experiences often depart from existing mental models of human-machine interaction and are often tricky to prototype. Traditional behavioral research methods often become less effective, meaning researchers need to experiment with new ways to gather learning.

Using examples from research into mixed and augmented reality experiences, we will explore these hurdles and discuss techniques for gathering insights when existing research methods prove inadequate.

Join this session to hear about experimenting with user experience design research techniques and how people interact with augmented and mixed reality experiences.

About the Speaker

Hannah drives technology innovation by researching people, behaviors and culture. She works with design, development, product and business teams to help build products and experiences that people love. She has nearly 18 years’ experience in both research and design roles in the technology industry and an exciting 14 years spent working in the innovation labs of global technology leaders.

Her career has been focused on emerging platforms, from early mobile computing and the Internet of things to augmented and virtual reality experiences. A background in film, human-computer interaction and ergonomics prepared Hannah for experimenting with smart and spatial computing and her current passion: reimagining the traditional screen-based design research studio.

Hannah likes blank sheets of paper and big questions with no answers.

https://chifoo.org/may-1-2019/

Meeting Details
5:30 - 6:30: CHIFOOd and Registration: Please join us before the meeting to enjoy dinner and networking. Food and beverages will be available for $5.

6:30 - 8:00: CHIFOO program starts at 6:30pm.
This meeting is free for CHIFOO Members & $5.00 for non-CHIFOO Members. Become a member today at chifoo.org. Raffle Tickets are $1.00 for two (available at door during Registration).

Please note: CHIFOO wants to make sure that each meeting is a great experience for everyone. If you need an accommodation to help you better enjoy CHIFOO meetings and events please let our CHIFOO Programs Chair know how we can help a few days prior to CHIFOO event.
