    Yuri's Night Party with PSAS

    The Portland State Aerospace Society (PSAS), a student aerospace group at Portland State University with decades of experience in high-powered amateur rocketry, is hosting a Yuri’s Night Party, in honor of the international space holiday.

    Fifty-five years ago, Yuri Gagarin was the first person to travel into space when his spacecraft completed one full orbit about the Earth on April 12, 1961. In honor of his great accomplishment, parties are held worldwide every year to celebrate humanity’s progress in space.

    As part of this international celebration, PSAS is hosting a “space race” with challenges and games, technology displays from local rocketry and space groups, engineering labs open to visitors, and food and beverages provided. We will also be screening the film First Orbit, a reconstruction of what Yuri would have seen on his journey.

    The event will be held on April 12 from 6:30-9:30 in the Engineering Building of PSU (1930 SW 4th Ave Portland, OR 97201, at the intersection of SW 4th and College). All ages are welcome; there is a recommended $10 donation per person at the door.

    Please join us as we celebrate the past, present, and future of space travel!

    CAT BarCamp

    BarCamps are free unconferences where the people who show up on the day of the conference decide what the conference is about. It has been shown time and time again to produce some of the best material available. The spontaneity of the entire event stands in stark contrast to the more planned conferences you may have been to. Essentially the entire conference is a hallway track, and many people feel it’s the best quality of BarCamps!

    The CAT at PSU is an ops training organization that has secured the venue and is organizing the event. We expect many job-hungry students skilled in development, computer science, operations, and everything else to be in attendance at this event and we want to enable as many connections as possible.

    Although registration is not required please RSVP at https://goo.gl/Bf9ttp so that our organizers can plan accordingly.

    Jonathan Aldrich: Typestate Verification for Aliased Objects using Assume-Guarantee Permissions

    We are having a special summer colloquium presentation by Jonathan Aldrich of CMU on Tuesday, August 12, at 10:30am. Title and abstract below.

    The talk will be in the Dean's Conference room (EB 500) in the Engineering Building at Portland State University.

    Jim Hook (hook at cs dot pdx dot edu) is acting as host.

    TITLE: Typestate Verification for Aliased Objects using Assume-Guarantee Permissions

    ABSTRACT: Object-oriented libraries often define usage protocols that clients must follow in order for the system to work properly. Typestates use state machines to specify these protocols, but previous protocol verification systems have significant practical problems in their precision, scaleability, easy of use, and applicability to standard coding styles and idioms.

    We are exploring a new approach to verifying typestate using assume- guarantee permissions. These permissions track not only the state of an object, but an abstraction of what operations other aliases might perform on the object. Developers annotate their code with state and permission information, which can be automatically and soundly checked for consistency. Our approach is fully modular, yet allows substantial reasoning about objects even when they are aliased by multiple clients. We will describe novel approaches for reasoning about inheritance and concurrency, and show case studies verifying code (and finding one defect) in well-tested Java standard library code.

    This is joint work with Kevin Bierhoff and Nels Beckman.

    PLUG: Stupid USB Tricks, reading magstripes, barcodes, 10-key pads, and keyboards

    LOCATION

    Fariborz Maseeh College of Engineering & Computer Science Building, Room FAB 86-01 (This is in the basement.) The building is on SW 4th across from SW College Street. See location H-10 on map at http://pdxLinux.org/campus_map.jpg

    PRESENTATION

    Eric Wilhelm -- Stupid USB Keyboard Tricks: Reading magstripes, barcodes, 10-key pads, and keyboards with libusb.

    An overview of libusb, how usb keyboards (and keyboard-like devices) are handled by Linux and X, and how they can be disconnected from the main input driver for use and abuse by user-space code.

    This technology has useful applications such as connecting USB credit-card and barcode readers to point-of-sale software independently from the keyboard focus or keymap. It also allows silly things like multi-player text editors or a 105-command program launcher. Or you could just use it to change songs in xmms.

    Code will shown in small doses of Perl and C. Hands-on demonstrations will be included as time allows.

    Caution: presentation may result in a desire to attach one or more additional devices to your computer.

    AGENDA

    7:00 - 7:30 Business We will discuss the status of our ongoing projects including PLUG's monthly Advanced Topics meetings, PLUG's monthly hands on clinics, PLUG for Education, etc.

    7:30 - 8:30 Presentation

    9:00 - ... Beer Jax Bar And Restaurant 826 SW 2nd Avenue Portland (Note: We no longer use the Lucky Lab.)
