    CascadiaJS Training by Formidable Labs

    TBD - Portland

    JavaScript is at the core of the modern web—on the server and in the browser. In this full-day tutorial, we will lead you through the tools, frameworks, and paradigms that you need to craft modern, client-rich applications. Our intensive workshop will take you from a basic skeleton application to a production-ready infrastructure, ready to stand up to real-world traffic.

    The team at Formidable Labs has written some of the worlds' largest JavaScript web applications and literally written the book on testing them. Our engineers and educators have led trainings for companies of all sizes, as well as the technology community. We are thrilled to bring our battle-tested experience and lessons from field to the fine folks at CascadiaJS.

    Topics

    • JavaScript for Modern Applications with jQuery & Underscore.js - Learn core tenets of JavaScript application development with two of the web's most essential tools – jQuery and Underscore.js.
    • MVC Fundamentals with Backbone.js and Node.js - Explore the fundamentals of Model-View-Controller application design, using the popular Backbone.js framework as a guide to concepts and implementations. We will back our frontend application with a basic Node.js data server.
    • Building Production Applications with Grunt & Friends - Create a production-ready application and support full testing / development workflows using Grunt, Bower, AMD/RequireJS and other automation tools.
    • JavaScript Application Testing - Increase confidence in your applications and find bugs earlier with tools and techniques to make application testing flexible, fast, and easy to do. We will use Mocha, Chai, and Sinon.JS to test frontend and backend JavaScript applications.

    (Postponed) Esri Geo Hackathon!
    through
    TBD - Portland

    UPDATE: Due to several people on our team being out of town, we've had to postpone this event until later this year. We'll be sure to add it to calagator when we pick a new date!


    We're throwing a big hackathon to showcase a bunch of new Esri tools! Come be some of the first to check out new and improved documentation, user interface and new SDKs and APIs for Esri's core technology.

    New to Esri? Basically, you can do anything add any kind of geo-functionality any product or app you're working on. From maps and data, geocoding and routing, demographic data and more, you'll be able to check out and test work from Esri R&D Center Portland and Esri HQ in Redlands!

    There will be plenty of free food and drink, and networking kickoff the night before. Teams will have Friday night until 6pm Sunday to build apps using Esri technology. We'll have sample code on Github and a ton of example projects. There will also be plenty of Esri devs on site to help out.

    Who should attend?

    Feel free to participate if you're a designer or developer, college student, professional, high school student or someone just interested in geo. Keep in mind that this is a developer hackathon, so you should arrive with at least some knowledge of HTML/CSS so that you can contribute to a team. If you don't know HTML/CSS but are a skilled graphic designer, we need you too! Think of it as a playground for trying new things out.

    What kind of prizes will there be?

    Prizes will be announced soon, but suffice it to say they will likely be interesting objects that fly through the air. Also, free conference tickets and Esri software credits for runner ups.

    Managing Vendor Partnerships
    through
    TBD - Portland

    More and more organizations are outsourcing services to provide them with a competitive advantage. Outsourcing a service is uniquely different than buying a product. With a service the organization’s staff is working directly with the vendor’s staff, and often the vendor is providing direct support to internal business partners and external big “C” customers. Managing the relationship is difficult, time consuming, and often the leadership team is not prepared for this new world.

    Managing Vendor Partnerships enables organizations to more effectively work with their service providers and their own staff to create long term value and increased ROI from each of their vendor relationships.

    At this workshop you will learn how to:

    • Move from contract management to relationship management with your vendors
    • Transition from managing employees to managing the relationship
    • Understand and differentiate between the goals and objectives of the organization and those of the vendor
    • Leverage process management techniques to provide a foundation for managing vendor partnerships
    • Utilize change management to transition employees to new roles
    • Recognize a range of cultural differences between the organization and the vendor
    • Gain additional value from your purchasing department
    • Be proactive in shaping a positive relationship and in recognizing when the partnership is in trouble
    • Establish appropriate governance structures
    • Prepare for the end of the contract
    • Improve vendor selection, contract development, and negotiation processes
    • Create value for long-term competitive advantage
