    Mobile Smart Technology MeetUp

    Imagine:

    Every application, service, and device understands the world you're in, learns your intentions and goals, and has the ability to extend beyond their original program......help users achieve goals faster, more efficient.

    Kimera Systems is the first company to bring a network-residing, context specific infrastructure to the market.

    It’s available to any developer, today.

    Since Google Now and Foursquare’s added context awareness, we decided to announce what we've been working on for the last few years.

    It’s based on new, mobile artificial intelligence (AI) technology. We’ve created a service that can assist your device or application in any use case.

    Providing an intelligent User eXperience

    Context Aware: Constantly adapting to new situations

    User priorities and intent drive services

    Intelligent distribution to your end-users without using current "app store"-models

    Join us Wednesday August 8, 2012 from 6pm to 8pm at ShopIgniter in the Pearl District (Portland) to learn how you can implement this technology in your PHP Web Apps today, to provide a superior user experience over native apps.

    We provide the necessities: Pizza, Beer, & Soda!

    Limited seating: RSVP today!

    PDXPHP: Monthly Meeting

    Shopigniter Office

    Join fellow PHP developers for presentations and discussions.

    • Jordan is starting to offer web development classes to designers and other non-programmers, and thought it would be interesting to discuss with the group what everyone thinks "would be good concepts, techniques and approaches to teach, what pitfalls you've encountered when working with newbies (especially print designers who may be set in their pixel-perfect designy ways), etc". (Jordan Lev)
    • Demo of the Fabric library.  It is actually written in Python but is a great general tool for deployment and other administrative-type tasks (Chris Forrette)
    • Anybody used FRAPI? Share your thoughs, concerns.

    PDXPHP - Monthly User Group Meeting

    Shopigniter Office

    We Meet every 3rd Tuesday

    • We’ll start with a tech book swap. Most of us have a few tech manuals lying about that we never use, but that others would find useful. Many of us need a new tech book/s but have not yet picked one up, for one reason or another. Here’s your chance to find unwanted books a good home, or to find a useful manual or three for yourself. Here’s what happens: Those with unwanted books will bring them to the group and leave them in a common area. Then it’s just a matter of everyone helping themselves. You don’t have to bring any manuals to leave with manuals, and vice versa. Books left over at the end will be taken to Powell’s Technical Books for their freebie bin, or possibly to Free Geek.
    • Behavior Driven Development with Bhat
    • Pat Moldovan has been working on "SQLite Data Layer trying to emulate some MONGO functionality"  and will show the current progress
