Ruby Book Club - **Canceled**

Reading through technical books in a group is a great way to learn. You can stay motivated by reading together; better apply what you are reading by actively communicating it, as well as hearing others perspectives that will help you better understand the book. Even if you're a more experienced developer it's a great way to keep your skill sharp and share your wisdom and experience. If none of that is convincing just come and have fun with fellow ruby developers!

This meeting has been canceled will meet next week same place and time.

Global Game Jam
through Art Institute of Portland

The goal is to come together and make a video game, or non-digital game like a board game or card game. Participants rapidly prototype game designs and hopefully inject new ideas to help grow the game industry. We share a common theme and constraints. We ask participants to create a game from beginning to end in a prescribed time (maximum of 48 hours). The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in small but innovative and experimental games.

Meet+Hack with the creator of the Wake Programming Language
Ava's Roasteria

Come and bring your laptop, grab coffee, and meet Mike Fairhurst, creator of the Wake programming language.

Learn about, write in, or guide the design of the Wake programming language at an informal hack night.

While hanging out, we'll go over - features we want to add to the language - problems we're trying to solve - prioritizing next steps to code up - talk about what we want from a standard library

Brave coders can spend some time working on the compiler (written in C++), while eager ones can try writing things in Wake to provide valuable feedback. Either way, work directly with Mike as questions come up to ensure its smooth sailing!

Gaming for Social Good
Collective Agency Downtown

As the use of video games becomes more pervasive--think Angry Birds to Farmville to Wii Fitness--it becomes useful to consider their wider impact on our lives. Are they merely useful for entertainment, or can games help create change through creativity, imagination and play? Can games be valuable for mission-based groups like non-profits, NGOs and community organizations? How can game development connect students to real-world problems?

We’ll kick off the evening with a panel discussion including speakers at the intersection of gaming and game development for education, non-profit enablement and youth outreach. Our panelists will explore how gaming and the creation of games can positively impact our local communities and wider world mission-based efforts. Following audience Q&A, everyone is welcome to continue the discussion over networking, food and soft drinks.

Join us to discuss how creating games and game development can benefit the social good!

What: Meetup and Panel Roundtable
When: Thursday, June 21st 6-9pm
Where: Collective Agency, 322 NW Sixth Ave (between Everett and Flanders)
Who: Game Developers and Designers, Creatives, Educators, Non-Profits, Programmers, Entrepreneurs, Businesses

COPIOUSLabs TechTalk: The architectural underpinnings of C# with .Net
COPIOUS

COPIOUS is a user-centered digital experience agency. We build digital products with the user at heart and technology in our bones. We recently moved to a new office and now have a large space to host our TechTalks.

About TechTalks:

COPIOUSLabs TechTalks series meets every other Friday at 1pm at the COPIOUS offices. Our talks span artificial intelligence, new programming languages and techniques, computational linguistics, geographic data processing, systems and software architecture, augmented reality, network security, and more as proposed to the Copious engineering team.

About this talk:

Speaker: John Jessee

As new programming languages emerge, Microsoft's flagship programming language has been evolving to keep up. See how C# and the .NET Framework have incorporated new features such as functional programming, non-blocking code, language integrated queries, and more. This talk compares C# and the .NET Framework to the languages found in the book, Seven Languages in Seven Weeks, and in particular COPIOUS' most "native" tongue, Ruby.

All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to [email protected] along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.

COPIOUS is a user-centered digital experience agency. We build digital products with the user at heart and technology in our bones. We recently moved to a new office and now have a large space to host our TechTalks.

About TechTalks:

COPIOUSLabs TechTalks series meets every other Friday at 1pm at the COPIOUS offices. Our talks span artificial intelligence, new programming languages and techniques, computational linguistics, geographic data processing, systems and software architecture, augmented reality, network security, and more as proposed to the Copious engineering team.

About this talk:

Speaker: Brian Shirai

Writing your own programming language can be very different from writing a program in an existing language. However, it is less intimidating than many people assume. This Friday, Brian Shirai from Engine Yard will present a talk about features of the Rubinius dynamic language platform that make writing your own programming language simple and fun.

All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to [email protected] along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.

Elixir Games PDX
CrowdCompass

"Let's get functional... functional." -Olambdia Newton-John

We'll be kicking off the first in a series of Elixir Games meetups. The "Games" format is designed to create a bit of friendly competition and is accessible for all ranges of experience; beginners and pros alike.

Early in this series we'll be focusing mostly on solving problems in a functional paradigm, and as the series continues over time we'll move more and more toward Elixir's differentiators; Erlang interop, hygienic macros, OTP patterns.

If all that read like gibberish to you, don't worry you don't have to know any of that jargon, and by the time you do everything will already make sense. Because we'll introduce ideas and concepts in a way that will help you understand those things conceptually before you ever need a weird name for them.

Food and drink will be provided. There will also be small desk fodder prizes for the winning teams.

Please make sure you come with a computer to work on and have Elixir pre-installed locally or in a VM and ready to go.

"And the winner for Best Actor is..." -Pid Spawnington

Well, we managed to kick things off with solid attendance, some competition that came down to the wire, and valuable lessons learned all around. Let's see if we can build some momentum as we take a dip into how Elixir handles concurrency and how we might solve problems with those tools and patterns.

For the newcomers, the "Games" format is designed to create a bit of friendly competition and is accessible for all ranges of experience; beginners and pros alike.

Early in this series we'll be focusing mostly on solving problems in a functional paradigm, and as the series continues over time we'll move more and more toward Elixir's differentiators; Erlang interop, hygienic macros, & OTP patterns.

  • David Celis and Ben Weintraub will talk about interesting performance issues.

  • Nic Benders from New Relic, "Get Your Ass to 1.9": Ruby 1.9 has been out for four years, everyone is telling you that it's great, but you've got this one production app (or maybe twelve) that is just sooo complicated and it looks like such a hassle to convert.... No more excuses people, it's 2013, let's get this thing done! I gave a version of this at Ruby on Ales last month, but we ran out of time and couldn't do questions. Since PDX Ruby is less formal, I am going to do it shorter, but with Q&A as we go. So bring your pointy sticks and lets have some fun.

  • Jonan Scheffler, "Hacking Cognition": This presentation will offer you some immediately actionable steps to improve your cognitive ability and be more efficient with your programming studies. You’ll learn techniques mnemonists use to memorize random pages of binary digits, how your brain physically changes as you learn something new and how simple changes in your daily routine can have a deep impact on your work.

  • ...and lots of great group discussions on Ruby-related topics.

PRESENTATIONS

  • Kerri Miller: You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure
    Adrift at sea, a GPS device will report your precise latitude and longitude, but if you don't know what those numbers mean, you're just as lost as before. Similarly, there are many tools that offer a wide variety of metrics about your code, but other than making you feel good, what are you supposed to do with this knowledge? Let's answer that question by exploring what the numbers mean, how static code analysis can add value to your development process, and how it can help us chart the unexplored seas of legacy code.

Portland Ruby Brigade monthly meeting: Fluent Refactoring, performance issues, Ruby Hangman and more!
CrowdCompass office in the Ford Building

Thanks to CrowdCompass for hosting Ruby meetings every Tuesday!

PRESENTATIONS

  • Markus Roberts: Ruby Hangman
  • David Celis and Ben Weintraub talk about interesting performance issues.
  • Sam Livingston-Gray: Fluent Refactoring

Fluency is "what you can say without having to think about how to say it." Refactoring is a language that describes ways you can make your code better. I want to inspire you to learn more of that language, so you can make your code better without having to think about it.

I'll walk through the process of reworking a 50-line controller action that resists comprehension, let alone refactoring. We'll discover how to tease apart some fiendishly intertwined code, embrace duplication, use dirty tricks to our advantage, and uncover responsibilities that weren't obvious when we started.

NOTE TO PDX.rb: I'll be giving this talk at Lone Star Ruby Conf in a few weeks. This will be a full run-through of the work in progress—slides may be incomplete, points may be muddled, jokes may not be quite as funny as they should be, and (time permitting) I'll ask you for feedback and suggestions at the end.

This presentation will be given without warranty of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Listen at your own risk. ;>

PHP: Using Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR with PHP and Zend Framework
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

Rich Internet applications (RIAs) are everywhere. With Web businesses like Google and Yahoo! and brick and mortar companies like Harley Davidson and Sherwin Williams embracing RIAs for their online presence, the media buzz is giving way to the reality of a better Internet.

Adobe has recently contributed AMF support to the Zend Framework, allowing PHP developers to easily build Rich Internet Applications using Flex and Adobe AIR that interact with a PHP backend.

Ryan Stewart, a technical evangelist with Adobe, will give an introduction to Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR, and will walk through how to create a Flex application powered by PHP and the Zend Framework. Working with Zend Studio for Eclipse, and Flex Builder (an Eclipse plugin), Ryan will demonstrate how to build, debug and deploy applications built with Adobe Flex, and how to have these same applications run on the desktop using the Adobe AIR runtime.

With this knowledge, developers will be able to easily build rich Internet applications that combine data from PHP and rich media like audio and video into a compelling application.

Python: What's new in 2.6 and 3.0
CubeSpace [ *sniff* out of business 12 June 2009]

Python 2.6 has been released and 3.0 will be shortly. We'll be celebrating their releases this Tuesday with a D.I.Y. What's New party!

The format is simple: pick a change or two from the What's New in Python documentation from 2.6 or 3.0 and tell us about it! You can use the projector if you want, but < 5 minutes. That's easy because most changes are small.

Here's an example from 3.0:

"Removed <> (use != instead)."

So easy! Find some and bring 'em to us. If you get inspired and want to share one of the few larger changes (< 10 min), check the wiki and put your name down.

I'll be bringing two growlers of rare and wonderful beer from Bailey's Taproom to get the party started. Bring hardcopy of one or both What's New if you can. And party hats.

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.

Google Development Group (GDG) PDX Meetup - All About Kotlin
eBay Community Lounge

This month we're going to discuss Kotlin! If you haven't heard of Kotlin, it's a new language created by JetBrains (the people behind the people behind Android Studio). Kotlin is 100% compatible with java and android, and can be used in existing android projects mixed with java classes. There is incredible IDE support and the language itself is very modern, borrowing many concepts from functional languages such as Scala, but being much more accessible to java developers.

We will have a presentation about Kotlin basics and I encourage you to bring laptops to play with it as we will reserve some time for group work where we all play with the language together.

If you want to participate in that portion of the meetup, please have Android Studio installed along with the Kotlin plugin.

Details of Kotlin can be found at:

http://kotlinlang.org/

As always, excellent food and drink will be provided by our generous sponsor, eBay

Portland JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting
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!

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 Luc Perkins ([email protected]) and Jesse Hallett ([email protected]).

Inaugural meeting!

The Zissou Society for Programming Language Exploration (aka pdxlang) is a general programming language discussion/exploration group. The weird, the offbeat, the little-known, the forgotten programming languages. These are the things we'll be discussing.

We have three talks lined up:

  • Bart Massey will show us Inform 7.
  • Joe Groff is going to present on Factor.
  • Markus Roberts will give a talk on ... something. We're still working that out. If you've seen Markus present before, you know it's probably more fun that way.

Rumor has it that there will be pizza and beer.

This Month

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.

NB: We're at a new location for Season 2.

First episode of Season 2!

Get up early and work on your side projects with some like-minded geeks!

TechCoffee is part running club, part knitting bee, and part hackathon. It's hard to work on all of your amazing ideas after a long workday, so instead we get up early. And we get together, so we have the reinforcement of other people up early, too. A couple hours a week can make a big difference.

So bring your laptops and your work ethic to PDX TechCoffee. Or, if you can't be there in person, join us on IRC at #techcoffee on freenode. One commit a week is all we ask.

So bring your laptops and your work ethic to PDX TechCoffee. Or, if you can't be there in person, join us on IRC at #techcoffee on freenode. One commit a week is all we ask.

The Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics meeting

Software Verification and Performance Analysis using Valgrind

by Stephen Dum

Valgrind is a collection of tools to validate your (typically C or C++ compiled) program. It can validate correct usage of memory, profile your program, profile heap usage and verify proper thread usage. This talk gives an overview of valgrind and how it can be used, with emphasis on memory usage verification and profiling.

http://valgrind.org

About Steve: Spent decades dealing with large projects (multi-million lines of code) writing code, automating build processes and automated testing of the code.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne after the meeting.

Darcs Hacking Sprint
through Galois, Inc

Who : Anybody who wants to hack on Darcs (or Camp, Focal, SO6, etc) Beginners especially welcome!

Why : Darcs aims to have bi-annual hacking sprints so that we can get together on a regular basis, hold design discussions, hack up a storm and have a lot fun.

What : We plan to put some finishing touches on Darcs-2.4. Darcs 2.4 is a pretty exciting release because we expect it to offer nice performance enhancements from Petr's Google

Summer of Code Project, and also a nice new 'hunk splitting' feature.

We also intend to set aside at least one Darcs hacker for mentoring beginners, so if you're new to Haskell or to Darcs hacking, here's a good chance to plunge in and start working on a real world project.

How: Add yourself to http://wiki.darcs.net/Sprints/2009-11

Galois Tech Talk: Programming with Narrowing
Galois, Inc

Presented by Sergio Antoy from Portland State University.

In this talk, I will introduce narrowing, the characterizing feature of functional logic programming, from the programmer's viepoint. Narrowing promotes non-determinism and it enables computing with incomplete or unknown information. After a short and informal presentation of Curry, the leading functional logic language, I will discuss a few examples showing that narrowing and its associated non-determinism support programming at a very high level of abstraction.

Galois Tech Talk: Abstract "Anything": Theory and Proof Reuse via DTP
Galois, Inc

Presented by Larry Diehl.

Many advanced branches of mathematics involve structures that abstract over well known specific instances, e.g. abstract algebraic structures, equivalence relations, various orders, category theoretic structures, etc. In typed functional programming (e.g. with type classes in Haskell), encoding such structures amounts to enforcing the definition of elements and operations for a particular structure instance on one hand, and being able to use said elements and operations in generic definitions on the other hand. With Dependently Typed Programming (DTP) we can go one step further and define propositions/properties for abstract structures, and subsequently require proofs in particular instances.

This talk will tell the story of how examples of particular instances inspire an abstract definition (including its propositional properties), how to then instantiate the original concrete examples in the new abstract definition, and finally create further abstract definitions that depend on previously defined ones. Emphasis will be given on how easily concrete proofs can be used as evidence for abstract propositions, and how proofs about abstract structures parameterized by other abstract structures may reuse their proofs (similar to the more common concept of reusing operations in subsequent abstract definitions). The talk will use Agda as its demonstration language, but proofs will mostly be in the form of equational reasoning that should look familiar to the non-expert.

Galois tech talk: Practical Challenges to Secure Computation
Galois, Inc

Presented by John Launchbury.

In secure computation, one or more parties collaborate to compute a result while keeping all the inputs private. That is, no-one can gain knowledge about the inputs from the other parties, except what can be determined from the output of the computation. Methods of secure computation include fully homomorphic encryption (where one party owns the input data and the other party performs the whole computation), and secure multiparty computation (where multiple parties collaborate in the computation itself). The underlying methods are still exceedingly costly in time, space, and communication requirements, but there are also many other practical problems to be solved before secure computation can be usable. For programmers, the algorithm construction is often nonintuitive; for compiler writers, the machine assumptions are very different from usual; and for application designers, the application information flow has to match the security architecture. In this talk we will highlight these challenges, and indicate promising research directions.

This is a beginner class on recognizing when an algorithm would be useful, basic methods for creating one in Python, and a quick look at algorithms that have been written by others for common tasks. Presentation is in a room without computers but if you bring yours you can build a computer recipe or two yourself. Discussion and repetitive task descriptions welcome.

This meeting is open to the public. People of all genders are welcome to attend.

December PADNUG Party and Windows Phone - Monetization with In-App Purchases
Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 (HF3) Campus

As we normally do in December, we will be having a little bit of EXTRA fun for the meeting!

Second, Kelly White will be presenting "WinPhone 8 In-App Purchases". This is the critical monetization mechanism for developers today on mobile devices. Windows Phone 8 adds comprehensive support that opens a new world of opportunity to developers. He'll discuss this feature in depth during this session, including demos for implementation and testing!

Third - and I'm really excited about this - our swag pile this month includes a BRAND NEW MICROSOFT SURFACE!!! Seriously!

Finally, we’ll wrap up our evening with After Words at the new BJs Restaurant and Brewhouse at the corner of Cornell and Cornelius Pass Road.

"Girl Rising" at Intel
Intel Hawthorne Farms Building 3 (HF3), Auditorium

Did you ever think you could change the world by pursuing your dreams? But how do you get there and reach your full potential? What does education have to do with all of this? Women can transform their lives by jumping in and getting involved in their dreams. At this event, you’ll see an inspiring movie called Girl Rising.

Want to understand the basics behind all the cool gadgets we use every day? It all starts with circuits! And we’ll have a fun activity for beginners.

What is this event? It’s a combination movie showing and hands-on activity. It’s a chance for high school girls to meet women in technology and a chance for women in technology to be inspired by high school girls!

Who's invited? We’re excited to have an Intel WIN and ChickTech event! If you identify with any of the following, we’d love to have you:

Current and past ChickTech: High School participants Current and past ChickTech volunteers ChickTech supporters Intel WIN members Women in tech and ChickTech supporters

Why should you come? It’s free! There will be snacks.

But seriously, this is an event to watch and reflect on women’s empowerment in tech by watching Girl Rising. We’ll also have an educational (and fun, we promise!) hands-on activity and create your very own circuit.

If you’re a ChickTech: High School participant, we’ll do our best to provide transportation to the event, free of charge.

Who’s hosting?

Intel WIN (Women in Intel Network) Oregon will be co-hosting this event with ChickTech.

PADNUG: Asynchronous Programming Futures for .NET (C# 5 / VB 11)
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

This session will take a peek into the future and examine some of the features proposed for C# 5.0. This includes studying async methods which are part of C# 5.0 and build on the PFx Task library. We will also briefly look at the PFx Task libraries to gain the necessary background for working with the new language features. Note that Visual Basic 11 will also have these identical features so in essence we'll be covering VB 11 as well.

Presented by Michael Kennedy.

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 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".

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.

This month Jesse Hallett will talk about React and the Virtual DOM. React is a library for building HTML views in a less stateful, more functional way than is done with many other frameworks. Under the hood it uses a virtual DOM representation, which makes page updates really fast.

Thanks go to PubNub for sponsoring pizza, and to Janrain for providing meeting space.

North Portland Coders Night - Now monthly, every first Monday!
Lucky Labrador Overlook Tap Room

NOTE: Due to limited attendance of the weekly coders night, I'm reducing it to a single monthly event. First Monday was chosen to avoid conflicts with Dorkbot, DevOps, the Functional Programming Study Group, and the Android Developer meetup.

Of course, it's a public bar, so everyone's welcome to come on off weeks anyway if they feel like it.


Come hang out, drink beer, and write code every on the first Monday of the month.

Hacking Web Stuff with F#
Lucky Labrador Tap Room

Ok, F#ers, got a special guest coming into town that would like to do some web stuff hacking, and thus...

Hacking Web Stuff with F#

In this hands on session, we'll have a look at two F# libraries for doing web stuff, both on the server-side and on the client-side. It will be hands-on, so make sure to bring a laptop with F#. For playing with Fable, you'll also need to have node installed! Suave for the server-side

Suave is a lightweight web-server for F# that lets you compose web applications or REST services from small, correct, asynchronous web parts. It lets you compose asynchronous web services with just a couple of lines of code. For more information check out www.suave.io or demos like the F# snippes web site.

Fable is an F# to JavaScript compiler that lets you use functional-first programming style on the web. It produces modern and clean JavaScript with minimal core library and source maps. It integrates well with modern JavaScript dev tools like node, WebPack and organizes code using ES6 modules.

Tomas is a computer scientist, book author and open-source developer. He wrote a popular book called "Real-World Functional Programming" and is a lead developer of several F# open-source libraries, but he also contributed to the design of the F# language as an intern and consultant at Microsoft Research. He is a partner at fsharpWorks (http://fsharpworks.com) where he provides trainings and consulting services. Tomas recently submitted his PhD thesis at the University of Cambridge focused on types for understanding context usage in programming languages, but his most recent work also includes two essays that attempt to understand programming through the perspective of philosophy of science.

pdxrlang meetup: Tim Kaye: Fun With Data Streams in R
Lytics

Speaker: Tim Kaye

Title: Fun with data streams in R

Abstract: Often in practice, not all of your data will have been generated or collected yet, so you need to be able to process that data and update your models on-the-fly. This talk will provide a brief exploration of streaming algorithms and how they can be used in R. The primary applications will be data mining for data streams and online inference using non-parametric Bayesian models.

We may visit a local watering hole afterwards, or I may bring beverages.

PDX PHP - Demystifying TDD & 5 Algorithms Every Web Developer Can Use and Understand
MotoSport

Join us for an evening of two talks at MotoSport!

John Kelly will give a hands on talk on demystifying Test-Driven Development (TDD). We're going to go through a real example that isn't the "easy" example you'll find in books. We'll go over why, as well as how to implement TDD in your development workflow.

Also...

Sheldon Kreger will share "5 Algorithms Every Web Developer Can Use and Understand." Although we don't often implement algorithms in our work, there are several of them which can prove to be useful in our applications. Content recommendations, search engines, and natural language processing are just a few examples of algorithms leveraged online. Sheldon will describe the basic mathematics behind the scenes, and show some demonstrations using the Algorithmia API (https://algorithmia.com) to access advanced algorithms from within PHP applications, including Wordpress and Drupal.

Food and drink will be provided.

Thanks to MotoSport for hosting this month's meeting!

pdxrlang meetup: NLP meets Politics-Experiment­s w/ Word-Vectors and 2016 Campaign Debate Rhetoric
Mozilla

Speaker: Winston Saunders

Abstract: Word vectors, derived by deep learning algorithms applied to billions of words of text, provide powerful semantic models of language. Code in R, demonstrating [queen] + [man] - [woman] ~ [King] to about 90% accuracy will be reviewed. Building first on exploratory "bag of words" analysis of Presidential debate texts, we'll explore, using pre-computed GloVe vectors (Pennington et al http://nlp.stanford.edu/projects/glove/), relationships like [sanders] + [trump] - [clinton] ~ [cruz] and how candidate positions align to rhetorical sentiment like [government] + [people] - [tax]. This analysis is work in progress. We'll also test empirical limits (aka failed experiments). Active feedback is both sought and welcome.

Details:

Doors open ~6 pm, talk starts at 6:30 pm

Mozilla

Speaker: De'Mel Mojica

Abstract: This talk will be on a general approach to automatically join large-scale, geospatial data across distinct data sets, using a mix between Levenshtein Distance thresholds and Haversine Distance thresholds. This approach permits joining multiple data sets without the need to provide ad hoc normalization conventions for each data resource. In addition, this approach can be generalized beyond a geospatial field and applied any domain which requires joining across two or more non-identical dimensions.

We'll visit a local watering hole afterwards.

Papers We Love: Aaron Turon on "The Next 700 Programming Languages" by Peter J. Landin
Mozilla

Thanks to Mozilla for hosting!

This month's paper is "The Next 700 Programming Languages" by Peter J. Landin. One of the most influential papers of all time in PL research!

PDF: https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~crary/819-f09/Landin66.pdf

Abstract:

A family of unimplemented computing languages is described that is intended to span differences of application area by a unified framework. This framework dictates the rules about the uses of user-coined names, and the conventions about characterizing functional relationships. Within this framework the design of a specific language splits into two independent parts. One is the choice of written appearances of programs (or more generally, their physical representation). The other is the choice of the abstract entities (such as numbers, character-strings, list of them, functional relations among them) that can be referred to in the language. The system is biased towards “expressions” rather than “statements.” It includes a nonprocedural (purely functional) subsystem that aims to expand the class of users' needs that can be met by a single print-instruction, without sacrificing the important properties that make conventional right-hand-side expressions easy to construct and understand.

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

FutureTalk with Ward Cunningham
New Relic

Wiki's Song of Code and Content

Agile programming and Wiki hypertext emerged together out of a single vision of completing each other's work. Twenty years later we see opportunity to direct this collaboration toward more difficult problems. This is not your father's wiki. We reexamine fundamental questions about what it means to write and to program. Then we show how Federated Wiki uses both to make a better world.

This is the 5th 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

Ward Cunningham has worked for and consulted to daring startups and huge corporations. He has served as CTO, Director, Fellow, Principle Engineer and Inventor. He is best known for creating wiki. He leads an open-source project rebuilding wiki to solve more complex sharing situations addressing some of societies toughest problems. Ward founded movements in object-oriented, agile software, extreme programming and pattern languages. Ward lives in Portland, Oregon and works for New Relic, Inc.

We'll have pizza, snacks & beer starting at 6pm, so stop by early if you want to have dinner and socialize before the presentations.

PRESENTATIONS at 7pm

  • Markus Roberts: Ruby hangman
  • David Celis: Benchmarking
    Covering the basics of benchmarking in Ruby, application to HTTP load testing, and some gotchas along the way.
  • Jason Clark: Make an Event of It!
    Are your controllers jumbled with seemingly unrelated steps? Does testing any bit of application logic require fixtures and setup helpers a mile long?
    Evented patterns create a vocabulary of what happens in your system, and a way to separate code triggering events from code that responds to them. That helps tame the sprawl by setting clean boundaries, simplifying tests, and keeping your dependencies isolated.
    This talk reveals the power of events and what's already in Rails to help you.
  • Chuck Lauer Vose: Building kick-ass internal education programs (for large and small budgets)
    There are not enough senior programmers in the world to satisfy the needs of our organizations; but educating your own developers is crazy expensive and hard, right?
    It turns out there lots of effective, low-cost, low commitment ways to inject education into your organization, I'll show you some of the low commitment ways to engage your peers, how to evaluate your needs, how to measure your progress, and how to plan for future ed needs.

After presentations we'll have more socializing time.

DevOps Patterns Distilled:

Implementing The Needed Practices In Four Practical Steps

Organizations employing DevOps practices such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Etsy and Twitter are routinely deploying code into production hundreds, or even thousands, of times per day, while providing world-class availability, reliability and security. In contrast, most organizations struggle to do releases more than every nine months.

The authors of the upcoming “DevOps Cookbook” have been studying high performing organizations since 1999, and we capture and codify how these high-performing organizations achieve this fast flow of work through Product Management and Development, through QA and Infosec, and into IT Operations. By doing so, other organizations can now replicate the extraordinary culture and outcomes enabling their organization to scale and win in the marketplace.

The goal of the DevOps Cookbook is to help accelerate DevOps adoption, increase the success of DevOps initiatives, and lower the activation energy required for DevOps transformations to start and finish.

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

Please join and RSVP via our new Meetup group HERE

Gene is a multiple award winning CTO, researcher and author. He was founder and CTO of Tripwire for 13 years. He has written three books, including “The Visible Ops Handbook” and “The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win." Gene is a huge fan of IT operations, and how it can enable developers to maximize throughput of features from “code complete” to “in production,” without causing chaos and disruption to the IT environment. He has worked with some of the top Internet companies on improving deployment flow and increasing the rigor around IT operational processes. In 2007, ComputerWorld added Gene to the “40 Innovative IT People Under The Age Of 40” list, and was given the Outstanding Alumnus Award by the Department of Computer Sciences at Purdue University for achievement and leadership in the profession.

    Cognitive Shortcuts: Models, Visualizations, Metaphors, and Other Lies

    Experienced developers tend to build up a library of creative problem-solving tools: rubber ducks, code smells, anthropomorphizing code, &c. These tools map abstract problems into forms our brains are good at solving. But our brains are also good at lying to us. We'll talk about some of these tools, when to use them (or not), and how their biases can lead us astray.

FutureTalks PDX with Arun Gupta (Doubleheader!)
New Relic

This month we are all in for a double dose of awesome! Our special guest will be Arun Gupta (founding member of the Java EE team at Sun Microsystems and director of developer advocacy at Red Hat in San Francisco). He will give not one, but 2 talks:

Devoxx4Kids:

So your kid is interested in programming, robotics, engineering?

Devoxx4Kids is a worldwide initiative that introduces programming, robotics, and engineering to kids at an early age. This is achieved by organizing events where children can develop computer games, program robots and also have an introduction to electronics. This effort won Duke’s Choice Awards at JavaOne 2013. This session will share how Devoxx4Kids is engaging kids at an early age and teaching them computing concepts using Scratch, Greenfoot, Minecraft, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, NAO, Tynker. The session will show a path that can be followed by parents to keep their kids engaged and build, instead of just play games. The attendees will learn best practices to organize similar workshops in their local setting. Tips on opening a local US chapter and how to build attendee base will be shared.

Continuous Integration using Java EE 7

Techniques such as automated testing, continuous integration and continuous deployment allow software to be developed to a high standard and easily packaged and deployed to test environments, resulting in the ability to rapidly, reliably and repeatedly push out enhancements and bug fixes to customers at low risk and with minimal manual overhead. What container-agnostic tools are available for testing, continuous integration and deployment of a Java EE 7 application?

This talk will provide a quick overview of Arquillian and how it helps in testing across multiple containers. Separate approaches for greenfield and brownfield applications will be shown. Configuring Jenkins for Continuous Integration will be shown. Setting up multiple WildFly containers on OpenShift for testing and production will be shown in detail. At the end of this session, attendees would have converted their development environment to leverage the power of Jenkins, Arquillian, and OpenShift to setup an automated Continuous Delivery pipeline.

Doors will open at 5:30, and the presentation will begin right at 6p. The food and drinks are provided by Bellagios and New Relic.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

PRESENTATIONS at 7pm

  • Amy Pivo: RailsBridge Portland introduction
  • Markus Roberts: a little hangman-esque puzzle
  • Ben Orenstein (host of the Giant Robots podcast, other talks: Refactoring from Good to Great, How to Talk to Developers): "Live-coding Flappy Bird in ClojureScript"
  • Jason Clark: "Get Your Shoes (Back) On!" Years ago the enigmatic Rubyist _why created Shoes, a tiny GUI toolkit for writing fun, simple applications in Ruby. Shoes served as the foundation for Hackety Hack, a programming environment specially designed to be accessible to kids. In the wake of _why's departure, many people assumed Shoes was finished as well. Such is not the case! Shoes has continued to evolve and grow, and the latest revision (Shoes4) builds off the cross-platform strengths of JRuby and SWT. If you've ever wanted to write a desktop app as easily as you write a web page, Shoes is for you. If you've ever wanted to get involved in a welcoming, accessible open source project, we'll show you how to hack on Shoes. Get your Shoes on, and let's build something awesome!

After presentations we'll have more socializing time.

PRESENTATIONS at 7pm

Mike Perham: Tribute to Ezra Zygmuntowicz

Davy Stevenson: Benchmarking Ruby

Testing is firmly ingrained in our culture, and many of us rely on a network of services to test, evaluate and profile our code. But what about benchmarking?

Learn tips and tricks about how to approach benchmarking and the variety of gems that are available. Learn about tools to help determine algorithmic complexity of your code, as well as how this information can help you make development choices. Learn how to properly set up your benchmarking experiments to ensure that the results you receive are accurate. More importantly, discover that benchmarking can be both fun and easy. http://rubyconf.org/program#prop_681

Markus Roberts: Thinking Outside the Framework

Jonan Scheffler: Sauron: DIY Home Security with Ruby!

This is the story of how I built an all-seeing eye with Ruby, and how I use it to defend the sanctity of my suburban home. Using a Raspberry Pi and some homemade motion detection software I've developed a home security system that can send me notifications on my phone and photograph intruders. It uses perceptual hashes to detect image changes and archives anything unusual. I can even set a custom alerting threshold and graph disturbances over time. If you've ever had the desire to be an evil wizard with a glowing fireball of an eye this talk is perfect for you. Come play with Sauron. http://rubyconf.org/program#prop_787

After presentations we'll have more socializing time.

FutureTalk with Liz Abinante and Janice Levenhagen
New Relic

Diversity and Education in Tech

› Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Programming, Education, and the American Dream

The learn to code movement has popularized the idea that coding is a skill everyone can learn. It's the American dream: learn the desirable skill and you'll succeed financially. Liz will discuss the history of the American Dream, how new programming education endeavors have repackaged it, and how the lack of awareness and analysis of this privileged rhetoric is damaging our culture and workforce.

Liz Abinante is an engineer living in Portland working for New Relic. Previously, she has served as co-leader for the Chicago chapter of Girl Develop It, where she taught and organized programming classes for women and minorities. She is infectiously enthusiastic about web development, teaching, learning, and feminism. She enjoys knitting, writing knitting programs and patterns, and hacking away on interesting problems. Her greatest dream in life is to spend her entire day surrounded by puppies while coding.

Women in Today's Tech

At ChickTech, we're often asked exactly why women are so underrepresented in technology. This is a hard question to answer, because it rarely is just one thing. It's a complex mix that we often call "death by a thousand cuts". Janice will guide us through the stats on technical women in various national and local tech companies and then take a dive into anecdotes that help to illustrate some of the reasons why women leave technology at twice the rate of men.

Janice Levenhagen is the Executive Director of ChickTech. She has a BS in Computer Engineering from Oregon State University and an MBA from Willamette University. She believes strongly that the diversity and strengths that women can bring will push high tech to even more impressive heights. Her inspiration for creating ChickTech came from her own experiences in computer engineering and the realization that the percentage of women in engineering isn’t going to get higher by itself.

› Doors will open at 5:30 for a 30-minute networking happy hour! The food, beer and drinks are provided by Bellagios and New Relic.

› The presentation will begin right at 6p.

› FutureTalk is brought to you by New Relic in collaboration with TAO
