    PyLadies Workshop: Intro to Django w/ Kenneth Love

    AppFog HQ

    This workshop is a somewhat dense guided run through the first three chapters of Getting Started with Django, the video web series from Kenneth Love (and funded by the wonderful Python community last year on Kickstarter!). We'll cover creating a project with an eye to maintainability and reusability (are those even words?!), testing that project, and even deploying it to Heroku.

    Before the event: please do the Django tutorial in your own time to familiarize yourself with the basic concepts. If you would like help and/or would rather do this in a social setting, come to the Saturday Hack Day July 6th!

    More details forthcoming!

    NOTES:

    • Please RSVP via Meetup (see website link).
    • This is a women-only event.

DelRay, makes it easy to pull information from different sources, deal with data quality issues, and then send the data to different applications (mobile, web, business intelligence, analytics, etc)
    • Mark Piller will talk about developing JavaScript applications with no server-side coding using a Backend-as-a-Service platform using Backendless as an example.

    APIs and the future of open data interchange (colloquium) CANCELLED

    AppFog HQ

    Unfortunately, I have had to cancel this event. December turns out to be a very difficult month to book speakers and I wasn't able to put together a sufficiently compelling slate of speakers.

    I'm going to try really hard to re-schedule the event for early 2013, and will keep everyone posted.

    Portland Riak Group: Intro to Yokozuna; Riak and Node.js at Coradine

    AppFog HQ

    Hi, and welcome to the Portland Riak Group.

    There are plenty of Riak Users in the PDX area, so it's time we had an official meetup. The team at AppFog was gracious enough to loan their space for the inaugural meeting, and a few members of the Basho team will be on hand to deliver pizza, beer, and stickers.

    Here are the talks we have lined up:

    7:15

    Next Generation Searching with Yokozuna

    Eric Redmond; Engineer, Basho Technologies

    Riak Search was created to expand Riak's query options. It's worked well enough the past couple years, but it's time to move forward. Yokozuna is the next generation of Riak search, built on the solid Distributed Solr platform. We'll see a preview of what Yokozuna does, what it's going to do, and how that's a marked improvement from the existing Riak Search.

    8:00

    Riak & Node.js: The Hunt for Cheap, Easy Nines

    Nathan Aschbacher; Developer, Coradine

    Portland-based Coradine makes an innovative aviation application that helps pilots the world over. Riak powers a lot of this application. Nathan Äschbacher, developer at Coradine, will take you through:

    • A quick history of our experience with Riak
    • How it came to be we opted to use it at Coradine
    • Some of the known hurdles we were going to have to overcome (like cloud deployment)
    • Some of the development issues we've encountered
    • Why Node.js was a good fit for us and interfacing with Riak
    • Abandoning Redis in favor of Riak Memory-store for caching and 2i

    Hope to see you on November 19th. Let me know if you have any questions .
