    PDX Big Data Discussion Group

    Jive Software

    "No talks. You may opt to take up to 60 seconds to complain about Big Data. One paper per month, no obligation to read it."

    We'll start by letting anyone who wants to take up to a minute to tell us what they've been doing with data lately.

    This month's paper is Inferring Networks of Substitutable and Complementary Products by McAuley et al. Read it or don't - the goal is just to have something to start conversations. "Did you read the paper?" will do nicely.

    Mention @PDXBigData on Twitter with the link to the full paper to suggest papers for future sessions.

    There will be food.

    OWASP Chapter Meeting

    Jive Software

    Bob Loihl will be presenting:
    Secure Software Development Life Cycle in an Agile World

    In this day and age we must do everything we can to produce secure software. But how you ask? I will be talking about some of the options available and how to get an initiative started in your workplace/project. I will cover some of the choices out there for Agile Development and then we'll examine one choice, BSIMM (https://www.bsimm.com/), in more depth. I will follow that up with a discussion of some of the challenges and some of the benefits of implementing an SSDLC.

    Bob Loihl is a Software Engineer with 20+ years of experience developing business applications, leading teams and spreading the security word. He has a strong interest in delivering applications that are secure by design in an agile world. He has been helping Tripwire grow and mature its development processes for the last 10 years and his current hobby is incorporating SSDLC (Secure Software Development Life-Cycle) processes into the software manufacturing process. Bob is passionate about family, software, canoes and guitars. In his spare time he works at Tripwire producing high quality software using Agile methodologies. Oh yeah, he cares a tiny bit about security.

    How To Use Selenium Successfully with Dave Haeffner

    April we have a special guest speaker Dave Haeffner!

    This will be the meetup you don't want to miss.  Dave is the author of a newly published book 'The Selenium Guidebook'.

    Want to learn how to use Selenium from the ground up? -- In an hour Dave will show you how to start from nothing and build out a well factored, maintainable, resilient, and parallelized set of tests that will run locally, on a Continuous Integration server, and in the cloud. These tests will not only work well, but exercise relevant functionality that matters to the business. 

    Dave is the writer of 

    Selenium Guidebook: with this book you can learn how to craft automated acceptance tests that you and your team can trust. 

    Elemental Selenium-- a free, once weekly Selenium tip newsletter that is read by hundreds of testing professionals. He is also the creator and maintainer of 

    ChemistryKit (an open-source Selenium framework). He has helped numerous companies successfully implement automated acceptance testing; including The Motley Fool, ManTech International, Sittercity, and Animoto.

    OWASP Chapter Meeting

    Jive Software

    Kevin Dyer will be presenting:


    High-Profile Password Database Breaches: A Tale of (Avoidable) Blunders

    Over the last few years, password database breaches reported in mainstream press have increased in frequency and magnitude. There is a typical pattern and service providers, such as Adobe or Yahoo or Snapchat, fail on at least two fronts: first, network perimeters and databases are breached and then, improperly secured user data and passwords are exfiltrated and shared in cleartext. Even if the former can't be prevented, there are security best practices to mitigate the impact of the latter, which are (seemingly) ignored.

    In this talk, we'll discuss specific case studies and review the essential security best practices for storing sensitive user information. The goal is to show that in every case free, off-the-shelf tools are available, that would have mitigated the scope of the breach and (possibly) the onslaught of negative publicity. As one example, we'll build intuition for why using Scrypt (a memory-hard function) is superior to traditional cryptographic hash functions for storing passwords.

    Kevin P. Dyer is a PhD student at Portland State University. His research focuses on network security and building protocols resistant to traffic-analysis attacks and censorship. Previously, Kevin worked as a software engineer in telecommunications security, web security and network security. He holds an MSc in the Mathematics of Cryptography and Communications from Royal Holloway, University of London, and a BS in Computer Science with Mathematics from Santa Clara University.

    HR Forum: Integrating the Corporate Strategy into Your Company Culture

    Jive Software

    A common dilemma among organizations today is the need to alter corporate strategy to compete in an ever-changing world. With that, a major challenge facing CEOs and others in the C-Suite, is how to encourage employees to embrace the new strategy and change their everyday behavior as a result.

    Topic Points:

    · How to align the strategy with the employee base to ensure it becomes rooted in the DNA of the culture.

    · How to develop and execute initiatives to build alignment with the corporate strategy.

    · What are the critical elements of an effective communication plan that delivers and regularly reinforces the key components of the strategy to all levels in the organization.

    · What are the effective accountability methods for ensuring that employees at every level are operating in alignment with the strategy.

    Panelists include:

    · John Major – Founder and Managing Partner, Summit Core Strategies

    · Ellen Raim – VP of HR, Cascade Microtech

    · Ania Osinska-Bulloff – Employment Brand Specialist, Tripwire

    OpenSocial State Of The Union - 2012

    Jive Software

    This year's "State of the Union" event will be held on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at the Jive offices in Portland, Oregon. It lines up with OSCON, the premier conference for open source technologies. We'll have discounted passes for the conference, so be sure to check out the OSCON site for all the detailed information about that event. If you just want to grab some swag, we'll also have "Expo Only" tickets as well.

    While past State of the Union events have been structured as a "mini conference", this year we've decided to take a different tact. The Foundation's primary goals are to enable our community in developing open standards and technology that advance the social Web and foster a vibrant, open ecosystem of social platforms and applications. This year's event will be a series of working sessions where we will focus on specific topics that, as a community, we need to address in the upcoming year. Each session will be moderated to keep us on track. The moderator will produce an "action plan" that we'll use to track our progress and measure our results.

    Changing an industry is never easy and, as always, there's plenty of work to do! Please come, roll up your sleeves, and join us for a great day of advancing the social Web.

    In addition, Jesse Hallett will present an end-to-end tutorial on how to set up JSTestDriver < http://code.google.com/p/js-test-driver/ > to automate the process of running QUnit tests < http://docs.jquery.com/Qunit > using QUnitTestRunnerPlugin < http://github.com/jivesoftware/QUnitTestRunnerPlugin >. We have had talks on testing before, including a great talk from Duncan Beevers on simulating time with Bobble < http://github.com/duncanbeevers/bobble >. In this talk Jesse will focus on automation and asynchronous tests, including more discussion on when simulated time or asynchronicity is the better choice and when to mix and match.

    There will be pizza provided by Jive Software.

    PDXScala Meeting

    Jive Software

    Come join fellow Scala hackers and enthusiasts. The guest speaker for this meeting will be Cooper Francis. He's going to cover some of the tricky changes that came in Scala 2.8 (particularly looking at arrays, manifests and implicits) and then do a bit of an exposition of implicits in general and how they can be used to create type classes. This should be a fun talk and I don't doubt we'll all learn something. If any of you have already delved into these changes, please come share your experiences and if you haven't, well... no better time than Thursday night to learn about them!

    Once again, our meeting will be at Jive Software (courtesy of Jesse Hallett) and will be starting at 7PM.

    Come join fellow Scala hackers and enthusiasts. The guest speaker this time will be Peat Bakke, who will be speaking about some of his experiences building a service with Scala. Or in his words:

    Scala, Circumflex, and MongoDB

    Or, why writing everything from scratch is a great way to learn a language, but a terrible way to be productive.

    This is about an ongoing Scala project -- a part of the Capacity product planning and resource management system. We'll be looking at a few parts of the system, a homebrew ORM for MongoDB, and the guts behind the scenes that handles the calculations, and the Circumflex-based JSON web service.

    The goal of building these from scratch was to learn, and it continues to be an experiment, so I'm looking forward to everyone's feedback on how to make it better!

    Jive Software

    Come join us for another gathering of PDXScala, graciously hosted by Jive Software. We'll be meeting at 7PM, June 17th, and Steven Osborn will be talking about his experiences developing for Android using Scala.


    Interested in Android Mobile OS development, but want to be able to program in Scala? Well you can have your cake and eat it too. Steven will give a high level overview of the Android development platform along with his experiences using SBT along the SBT Android plugin to rapidly develop Android applications. We'll cover everything from setting up your project, running your hello world application, and testing.

    Steven is the CTO of Urban Airship, a local mobile messaging and content deliver company providing easy to use, cross-platform web services for iPhone, Blackberry and Android. With nearly a decade of experience in the industry he has participated in all stages of a software company from startup to acquisition. Steven enjoys participating in open source development and has contributed significant amounts of code to projects, including Android OpenIntents and IDiB (Identity In The Browser). Steven is also an accomplished Guitar Hero rockstar and believes strongly that ideas are worthless and execution is everything.


    If you have other topics you'd like to discuss or just want to come hear how others are using Scala, please come join us. There is always plenty of opportunity for open discussions and mini-presentations.

    PDXScala Meeting

    Jive Software

    It's that time again! It seems to sneak up on me and if I'm not careful, I'll forget to send these notices out entirely. But fate intervened and I was reminded about it just now, so... without further ado... I'm happy to say we have what looks to be a very interesting talk this month being given by Stephen Judkins. Here's the description in his own words:


    GOTO Considered Awesome: Delimited Continuations in Scala

    Scala 2.8 adds support for delimited continuations, a powerful control-flow abstraction. First, I'll show how the the impressive power offered by continuations can be used for good or evil. I will demonstrate how they can be used to implement GOTO in Scala, then I'll show how a simple, synchronous Scala program can be transformed into a distributed, asynchronous web application that could support millions of concurrent users.

    I'll explain what a continuation actually is, and how Scala's are "delimited". I'll step though the code transformations the Scala compiler performs in order to support continuations. I'll show the limitations of Scala's continuation support and how it could be improved. Finally, I'll explain how continuations are a fundamental abstraction upon which many other things can be built.

We'll have Jesse Hallett discussing how he put together a lambda calculus to learn about Scala's parsing libraries. Leif Warner will also be showing an application he's been developing which uses the Step web framework (a workalike of the the Sinatra framework in Ruby). This app uses Simple Build Tool, Scardf, Jena, TDB, RDF/OWL, graphs and federated queries and is intended to provide an "open source community family tree" of the local Portland-area music scene.

    If you have a project or some code you'd like to share (for review or just to look at how you solved an interesting problem) please bring it along. Pizza will be provided by Jive.

    Refresh Portland October: Online Video For Everybody by Andy Beach

    Jive Software

    Online Video: everybody’s doing it these days, but are they doing it right? Probably not. Creating high quality video content for the web is not quite as simple as whipping out your Flip HD, then uploading to YouTube.

    That said, it’s a lot easier than most people know (and doesn’t require a two-hour uploading annoyance). We should all be putting more videos online, after all it’s the fastest growing and most popular communication vehicle on the web, but there are better ways to do it.

    This October, learn a few trade secrets and tips from Andy Beach, a seasoned video compressionist, and use faster, easier and more efficient ways to post better looking videos than all your friends.

    Andy is the author of Real World Video Compression and oversees all aspects of marking at product management at Elemental Technologies. His vast knowledge of video post-production, compression and interactive design has attracted clients worldwide, including: Microsoft, Major League Baseball, Apple, INC and Adobe Systems, INC.

In particular, she will share some findings from a body of studies of reading-related activities (such as annotation and clipping) and will draw on her experiences with several generations of eBook products, including Microsoft Reader, ePeriodicals (a reader for magazines like The New Yorker and Esquire), and the Times News Reader (an RSS-based reader for The New York Times).

    Jive Software

    Join us for a special installment of Refresh Portland May with Jared Spool! We’re going to move the meeting a week back to May 21.

      ---
    
      Experience design is no longer a nice-to-have luxury of a few organizations with tons of money and exceptional visionary management. It’s become commonplace for organizations that build products and web sites. Experience Design is a centerpiece of boardroom discussions and quickly becoming a key performance indicator for many businesses.
    
      However, you can’t just hire a couple of “experience designers” and tell them, “Go do that voodoo that you do so well.” Today’s business environment forces us to build multi-disciplinary teams, compiling a diverse group of skills and experiences to handle the many facets of the technical, business, and user requirements.
    
      In his usual entertaining and insightful manner, Jared will talk about what it takes to build a design team that meets today’s needs.
    
      He’ll demonstrate how successful Experience Design:
      * Must integrate the needs of the users with the requirements of the business
      * Is learned, but not available through introspection
      * Must be invisible to succeed
      * Is cultural
      * Is multi-discplinary
      * Thrives best in an “educate and administrate” environment
    
      You’ll see examples of designs from Apple’s iPod, Netflix, the Mayo Clinic, and Southwest Airlines, to name a few.
