AgilePDX Westside Cafe: Integrating Dev & QA
2885 SW Cedar Hills Blvd., Beaverton, or, 97005

You're a QA professional and you've been trying for months to get involved at the start of a story, but developers push you away. They see you as the traffic cop waiting to catch them in an error. You're a developer and the QA folks always find something simple right before the end of the sprint. Why didn't they tell you they were going to test that?

Join us at AgilePDX westside to discuss how to involve QA earlier in the process. How do you convince the team that QA is more than testing and ads value from the very start. How do you convince QA to step into a larger role? That they can abandon the formality they were trained in and jump right in.

This group is for all educators interested in learning about the K-12 Computer Science Framework Core Concepts and Core Practices and how to integrate computer science into any content area.

All materials are hosted on our Google Classroom - bring your laptop to participate in the activity and gain access to additional resources and lessons.

Let us help you get started integrating and aligning computer science today! This is the perfect place to begin building your computer science Professional Learning Network. Please RSVP at https://www.meetup.com/CS-For-Teachers/events/253626905/ .

AgilePDX: Mob Programming
Concordia University George R. White Library & Learning Center

Mob Programming is a software development practice with many benefits - it raises code quality, removes knowledge silos, minimizes mental fatigue, and more. In practice it feels more like a bulldozer than a racecar - unstoppable and thorough. The core of mob programming is pointing many pairs of eyes on a single problem, pushing all the code through a single keyboard. Each month we'll explore different methods for learning to mob well and reaping the rewards of this practice as soon as possible on your own team.

We may choose to head over to McMennamin's Kennedy School for food, drink, and talk afterwards.

Facilitator Bio:

Willem Larsen is a senior software developer at Hunter Industries. He has been speaking at Agile conferences on improving collaboration since 2009. He is the creator of accelerated team learning tools such as the Mob Programming role-playing game and Code Cooking (with Emmanuel Gaillot), author of the Language Hunter's Kit, co-author of 5 Rules For Accelerated Learning, founder of Language Hunters (a non-profit organization dedicated to improving communities of learning in technology, language, science, and music), and both a wildlife tracker and Search and Rescue tracker.

Galois Tech Talk: Reasoning about Critical Systems using Refinement
Galois Inc, 421 SW 6th Ave. Suite 300, Portland, OR, USA, (3rd floor of the Commonwealth building)

Abstract: Verification is often the dominant cost in the design of critical systems. In this talk, we advocate the use of refinement to reason about critical systems. The idea is that a system is correct if all of its observable behaviors are allowed by an abstract system that acts as the specification. For example, to verify a microprocessor using refinement, one shows that it implements its instruction set architecture. We provide a general introduction to refinement and motivate the need for various notions of refinement. We present various techniques and methods that have been developed to facilitate mechanized reasoning. We discuss the use of refinement for reasoning about distributed systems and hardware.

Bio: Pete Manolios is a Professor in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern. Pete’s primary research interest is mechanized formal verification and validation of computational systems. Pete has served as an Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES), as a member of the FMCAD, ACL2 and ITP Steering Committees, and is a member of the IFIP working group 1.9/2.15 on Verified Software.

CHIFOO Event: Ethics In The Age Of Artificial Intelligence
New Relic

CHIFOO presents "Ethics In The Age Of Artificial Intelligence" with Cennydd Bowles, Cennydd Ltd!

We mistakenly believe that technology is neutral; that inert objects cannot have moral characteristics. And so we make embarrassing blunders – racist chatbots, manipulative research, privacy violations – that undermine trust and harm those we should help.

This is a dangerous trajectory. We urgently need a deeper ethical dialogue about emerging technology, and interaction design's role within it. This session, informed by many months of ongoing research, will discuss:

-Why companies make poor ethical decisions, -The development of ethical thinking in other morally-charged disciplines, -Methods of engaging users in the ethics of emerging technology, -Ways for designers to engage positively and affect ethical outcomes, so that design decisions benefit not only ourselves but our wider communities and the world at large.

About The Speaker Cennydd Bowles' (@Cennydd) biography will be published shortly.

Digital Forensics
Northwest Academy

News today is thick with stories of government agencies trying to find digital evidence of wrongdoing: interrogating mobile phones for evidence, tracing emails to find a stalker or looking at a killer’s search history to discover motives. Digital forensic analysis now plays a pivotal role in both corporate and legal investigations. However, few outside of the industry understand the intricacies involved in a forensic undertaking — the capabilities and limitations of the forensics investigative process, the role of the digital forensic investigator or the extent of the laws governing these actions.

In this session, Tiberius Hefflin, Founder of Go Boldly, will delve into the basics of digital forensics. Attendees will learn what digital forensics draws from forensic science, how the law informs what a forensic investigator is ethically able to do, the many uses of digital forensics, evidence collection methods, anti-forensics methods, what the incident response process should look like and how they can maintain crime scene integrity until investigators can carry out an assessment.

While the subject is dense and could certainly be expanded, this introduction is aimed at those new to digital forensics with the goal of providing a solid foundational understanding which can be built upon with self directed learning.

Trigger Warning: Violent Crime, Child Abuse, Murder

While the talk will not cover these topics in great detail, Tiberius Hefflin will be discussing real crimes that have been solved due to digital forensics.

Join us for a great presentation and discussion! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions and news 6:15 PM: Presentation 7:15 PM: Q&A 7:30 PM: Wrap up and networking

Speaker bio:

Tibbs graduated from the University of the West of Scotland with a degree in computer security. She has since relocated to Portland, OR, where she evangelizes for privacy and security while doing Open Source Security Research at a large blue chip company. She is passionate about creating opportunity for diversity in the InfoSec community, teaching InfoSec best practices to average computer users, encouraging small children to learn more about STEM topics and about laughing at cats on the internet.

OWASP Portland Chapter Meeting - SAST and the Bad Human Code Project
Simple

SAST and the Bad Human Code Project

Static application security testing (SAST) is the automated analysis of source code both in its text and compiled forms. Lint is considered to be one of the first tools to analyze source code and this year marks its 40th anniversary. Even though it wasn't explicitly searching for security vulnerabilities back then, it did flag suspicious constructs. Today there are a myriad of tools to choose from both open source and commercial. We’ll talk about things to consider when evaluating web application scanners then turn our attention to finding additional ways to aggregate and correlate data from other sources such as git logs, code complexity analyzers and even rosters of students who completed secure coding training in an attempt to build a predictive vulnerability model for any new application that comes along. We’re also looking for people to contribute to a new open source initiative called “The Bad Human Code Project.” The goal is to create a one-stop corpus of intentionally vulnerable code snippets in as many languages as possible.

Speaker's Bio: John L. Whiteman is a web application security engineer at Oregon Health and Science University. He builds security tools and teaches a hands-on secure coding class to developers, researchers and anyone else interested in protecting data at the institution. He previously worked as a security researcher for Intel's Open Source Technology Center. John recently completed a Master of Computer Science at Georgia Institute of Technology specializing in Interactive Intelligence. He loves talking with like-minded people who are interested in building the next generation of security controls using technologies such as machine learning and AI.

Serverless Architecture Meetup
Stackery HQ

This month we will have two talks:

"What the Heck is OAuth?"

The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework has become the industry standard in providing secure access to web APIs. OAuth allows users to grant external applications access to their data, such as profile data, photos, and email, without compromising security. However, OAuth can be intimidating when first starting out. In this talk, Aaron Parecki will break down the various OAuth workflows and provide a simplified overview of the framework, highlighting a few typical use cases for web apps, mobile apps and browserless devices.

Aaron Parecki is a developer advocate at Okta, and maintains oauth.net. He's the co-founder of IndieWebCamp, a yearly unconference focusing on data ownership and online identity, and is the editor of the W3C Webmention and Micropub specifications.

Alanna Risse will show us how she built a working 'bananaphone' with google cloud voice.

Alanna Risse is a artist, web developer, and full stack mentor at Thinkful. Her piece “Bananaphone” was included in a group show at PNCA this summer. This interactive piece features a Google AIY Voice/Rasperry Pi Zero encased in an oversized paper maché bananaphone. Her website is http://alannarisse.com

Female Founders Alliance: Ready Set Raise Program
through TBD

All - The FFA Ready Set Raise program is coming to on one of it's stops across America this summer. The event is tentatively on 8/10, location and all good things TBD. Watch this for updates and email me if you have questions. Kristine Campbell, FFA member in Oregon [email protected]

Every founder knows raising capital is hard. And given that only 2% of venture capital is invested in female founded companies, what is already a moonshot for men is exponentially harder for women. You’re routinely and consistently underestimated, dismissed, ignored, ghosted, and judged by impossible standards - and that’s if you get in the door to begin with. Welcome to fundraising while female.

Last year, FFA member Laura Malcolm (Founder/CEO of Give InKind) posted an idea to our online forum: she suggested that we join forces and help each other pitch to investors. That's why a few of us got together and organized our own version of a Demo Day. The result was last year’s Founders Showcase.

Fast forward a year. Today, FFA has 4x more members, a growing team, a much bigger and more influential network of investors, and the help of world class sponsors like Davis Wright Tremaine’s Project W.

So as we thought about reprising the event that put us on the map, we asked ourselves: what would a fundraising program look like if it was designed for female founders, by female founders?

Our answer is called Ready. Set. Raise.™ We can't wait to tell you all about it. For now, please save the date for Demo Day on September 27th.

Leslie Feinzaig Founder/CEO Female Founders Alliance

Probabilistic Programming Kickoff meeting
Tura.io

Probabilistic Programming will be a powerful addition to anyone's AI/ML tool belt and can be particularly useful in low data situations (and you never have enough data), to take advantage of hard learned domain knowledge and to reason under uncertainty. Kind of the opposite of deep learning. But I see them as complementing rather than competing technologies.

In this first meeting we will:

  • get to know each other
  • discuss our projects, interests and experiences regarding probabilistic programming
  • get started learning

We'll start the first few meetings by going through the free book Bayesian Methods for Hackers by Cameron Davidson-Pilon (link below). Go ahead and read the first few chapters if get a chance before the meeting.

There is a slack channel too.

I hope you'll join us.

#FullStackPDX : August : Critique
WeWork Custom House

Just like fight club, if this is your first night attending, you have to present.

Discussing your startup, recent project, code reviews, business ideas, etc. are all applicable. There is not a required length of time to present. This can be a live prototype or even a set of powerpoint slides. You do not have to know how to code to present your dream, and we are HERE TO HELP you. Presentations are meant to be collaborative, not the traditional meetup style where a presenter talks like a teacher for a very long time and saves questions for the end. We use a timer and the group dynamic works to collaboratively prevent cross talk and side conversations. So bring your computer, fun spirit and desire to learn, and let's have fun.

Signups through meetup.com are required and seats are limited, so buy your tickets early because we usually sell out. We are self funded, and 100% of the revenue received is put back into the meetup costs. We will have top shelf pizza from Crown PDX (http://www.imperialpdx.com/the-crown/) so come HUNGRY for dinner!!

Doors open at 6pm and we kick off on time. We start consuming the pizza at 6pm as well. After the concert of presentations we will walk over to Bailey's Taproom (http://www.baileystaproom.com/) to continue the evening.

Location: WeWork Customs House : Room 1C : When you check in ask for CP Handheld, they are our sponsor. The room is right to the left as you walk in.

Quantified Self Conference
through Ziba Design - Auditorium

What can you learn about yourself using your own data?

The Quantified Self conference is where DIY toolmakers, scientists, caregivers and patients, athletes, teachers, and everybody else interested in "self-knowledge through numbers" get together to share their projects and exchange what they'relearning about self-tracking tools and methods. This year we'll have a special focus on learning from our own data both inside and outside of the classroom. Tools that will be discussed include blood assays, home-built environmental monitors, and effective tools for emotional self-assessment. Want to build your own metabolism tracking device? Curious about the effect of circadian rhythms on cholesterol? Interested in genomics, microbiome, fitness, and diet? As always, we'll have two days of first person "show&tell" reports about self-tracking and learning in all these domains - and more.

The program is what we call a carefully curated unconference. We look at the projects and ideas proposed by everybody who registers, learn as much as we can, and then craft a series of talks and discussions reflecting the latest knowledge in the QS community. You can get a good look at the style of the meeting by watching some of the talks we've been posting from past conferences at http://quantifiedself.com/.

Join us! (And please don't forget to post something about your work in answer to the survey questions when you register.)
