    I thought it would be fun to start to organize a monthly (or so) Portland MeeGo Meetup. For those of you who don't already know me, I'm Intel's Community Manager for MeeGo.

    For those of you who aren't familiar with MeeGo, it is an open source operating system for small form factor devices (netbook, handset, in-vehicle, tablet, connected TV, etc.) You can learn more at http://meego.com

    I checked calagator.org and the third Monday of every month is looking fairly open, which would put our first meeting on October 18 (location TBD, but somewhere centrally located near downtown Portland).

    Tentative agenda for the first meeting. 6pm - Introductions 6:15pm - MeeGo Overview & Demos 7:15pm - Discuss potential topics for next month

    30 hour day 2
    Portland Art Museum

    The first 30 hour day--the livestreaming Web-based telethon we put together to raise money for charities in the Portland area--brought in around $7000 for Free Geek, the Oregon Food Bank, and Toys for Tots, a couple of barrels of food, and at least one overflowing barrel of toys. Not to mention generating 30 consecutive hours of entertainment from awesome local artists for more than 70,000 people who tuned in to watch.

    Not bad for roughly six weeks from concept to completion.

    Now, we're hard at work on 30 hour day 2. And it promises to be bigger and better than the first.

    Fishbowl discussion of Agile software development

    Portland Art Museum

    Join us for a discussion of topics related to agile software development! Audience participation strongly encouraged. Pizza is at 6:30; discussion starts at 7.

    For those unfamiliar with the term, a fishbowl discussion works like fishbowl coding: there are a small number of people who are up front and allowed to speak at any given time. If you want to ask a question or say something, swap in for one of the people up front. If you're up front and done speaking, sit back down in the audience.

    Potential discussion topics include mock objects in testing; balancing ideology with reality; certification; no/low bugs in a codebase; contracting without being able to give a fixed bid. Or bring your own! We'll decide what we're discussing at the beginning of the meeting, but expect the conversation to wander.

    An Integrated Development Tools Stack: Soup-to-Nuts Implementation in Practice

    Presented by the Software Association of Oregon's Developers Forum

    In today's software development projects there are more tools and technology choices than ever before but few are seamlessly integrated. Although significant advances have occurred in the last 20 years, it remains a challenge to build an efficient, cost effective and integrated development tools stack that enables rapid development, testing, and release. Efficient use of a full spectrum of tools is crucial to any company for productive high quality development. The newest tools can make significant productivity gains possible when used effectively.

    Panel members will demonstrate working tools they've integrated in their development environments, and offer practical advice for adoption, benefits, challenges and usage.

    Code Health: Alex Kriegel, an Enterprise Architect for the State of Oregon, Alex has recently helped to introduce a software factory approach to software development at Public Health Division of the Oregon State Department of Human Services. This led to investigation of a wide variety of efficiency-inducing tools. He will provide a quick demonstration of code health tools including static code analysis (PMD, CheckStyle, FxCop), code coverage (NCover, EMMA) and an integrated code review process.

    Continuous Integration: Tom Waterhouse, a software architect at Sabrix Inc, the leading provider of transaction tax management, has been at Sabrix for over 8 years overseeing the technological growth of the company. Tom will demonstrate a continuous integration scenario where a checkin to subversion triggers a build in Bamboo via Maven which triggers a success or failure email upon build completion, and checkins are reconciled against stories in JIRA.

    Developer Integration Testing: Andrew Wright, a Principal Engineer at Blackbox Republic, has been building software for companies such as Jive and Iovation for over a decade. He’ll demonstrate a repeatable dataset generation system for databases as well as other data stores such as lucene, enabling developer oriented integration testing to occur in development. This solution utilizes maven, hibernate, and groovy.

    Even if you don’t use any of the tools listed, there are best practices to be had that you could apply to your tools stack. Come loaded with questions for these panel members to get ideas for optimizing your development tools stack.

    Open Source Test Workshop

    Portland Art Museum

    A Meet-up for soapUI, Selenium, HTMLUnit, TestMaker

    Software developers, QA testers, and IT managers are challenged to rapidly build and test Ajax, REST, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA,) and Web applications in a time when schedules are short, budgets are tight, standards are few, and much of this is new technology! Find out why Tribal DDB, PepsiCo, AMD, Ford, and Premiere Global succeed with open source build and test technology and methodology as a more affordable and flexible option to the traditional test vendors.

    Learn how you can leverage an open source software platform that develops products and services for rapid rich Internet application (RIA)/AJAX development on a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Learn how you can leverage open-source testing tools (Selenium, soapUI, PushToTest, TestGen4Web, HTMLUnit) for functional testing, load and performance testing, and business service monitoring, with more flexibility than traditional solutions provide.
