    July PADNUG: Hacking Sonos with .Net

    Presenter: Paul Fryer, Software Architect at Fiserv

    Paul started buying Sonos speakers for his home a couple months ago to get around the need to run wires for his home stereo. He was fascinated by the music streaming system, mainly the software used to synchronize the playing of music across multiple devices. So he started peeking under the hood to see how it all worked and if he could possibly learn to control it with custom code.

    Paul ended up reverse engineering Sonos and in the process learned about the Upnp protocol. He eventually created a C# library that can be used to turn any device into a node on the Sonos network.

    But Paul didn't stop there. He also added Azure Event Hub for cloud processing and Akka.Net to allow for high speed parallel event processing. And all this deployed on a raspberry pi!

    Paul will have a live demos and plenty of code. This will be the perfect follow on presentation to Jeremy Fosters talk on the "Internet of Things".

    AgilePDX Westside (morning) - How Agile is Agile Enough?

    How Agile is Agile Enough?

    Join us for a format introduced at the Intel Agile & Lean Conference: Lean Coffee++

    Participants will actively brainstorm and prioritize the agenda and become part of the conversation. Up-votes will continue the discussion, while down-votes mean move on to the next sub-topic.

    To guide the conversation we'll seed the topic, and also seed the audience with expert contributors. This is the ++ portion of our take on the LeanCoffee(tm) format.

    Seed Topic: How Agile is Agile Enough?

    Seed questions: Do large organizations need to accept the same definition of agility as small ones? Is it possible to accept some known impediments and still be considered 'agile'? How do we measure when we have become 'agile enough'?

    PADNUG November: Adventures in TFS with Dustin Woodhouse

    Big shiny enterprise-sized tools all tend to suffer from a common weakness: flexibility. Flexibility sounds great when customers are evaluating a tool. But it can backfire and actually exacerbate the problems a customer is hoping to solve, if there is no process to underscore and manage the flexibility.

    Team Foundation Server by Microsoft has this weakness in droves! Dustin will be presenting some concepts that they've put in place to manage the use of TFS that has elevated it from a painful free-for-all, to a highly effective tool that supports their specific business model perfectly. Yes, he will be discussing everybody's favorite topic …wait for it… PROCESS!

    PADNUG October: Core JavaScript Concepts

    The outstanding Jeremy Foster is hopping down from the Mother-ship in Redmond to visit this month!

    There’s as much excitement around JavaScript these days as there is apprehension! You know the feeling. You remember trying to find DOM elements and do something meaningful with them and that dang JavaScript was failing silently, it wasn’t triggering your alert, and it was causing hours of mumble cursing. Well, JavaScript has grown up a bit since then. Many know enough to get in trouble, but are convicted that it’s high time to learn more.

    In this course, we’re going to pass right on over the easy stuff – variables, control structures, and the basic concept of a function, and we’re going to dig right in to what makes JavaScript unique and powerful and show you why it’s just about everywhere! We’ll look at JavaScript environments; the developer tools and console; basic DOM manipulation; object notation; scope, closure, and the modular pattern; and the promise pattern.

    June Meeting: Universal Apps in Windows Phone 8.1 by Kelly White

    It's been over 18 months since Windows Phone 8 was released and now Windows Phone 8.1 is finally here. However the question still remains, if you weren't previously building for Windows Phone, then why should you care about it now? The first of many answers to this question starts with Universal Apps.

    Join me as I walk through building a Universal App for both Windows and Windows Phone. We'll be talking in depth about what they can and can't do, as well as some best practices you should follow. There is lots to talk about and you may have a few questions. Given what time is left, we'll also briefly cover some of the new features such as geofencing, live video editing, and - of course - Cortana. While there won't be enough time to go into depth on each of these, hopefully you will be inspired and walk away with ideas for the apps you can finally build using the tools you love the most!

    Topic: Failure Analysis: Lessons Learned Manufacturing and Field Reliability With a Focus on Failure Analysis of Assembly Case Studies

    When reviewed in conjunction with research, failures provide a unique perspective on design for manufacturability and reliability. This presentation will provide valuable lessons learned from practical experience through discussion of material selection, current electronics research and failure analysis case studies. Design considerations for advanced assembly processes and analytical techniques for materials characterization will also be covered. In addition, a review of lead-free laminate selection and testing procedures will shed some light on the question, “Can your board withstand 9x reflow?” Members of the SMTA Portland Chapter are encouraged to bring specific questions or examples of surface mount process difficulties to be shared in an open discussion at the end of the presentation. • Major difficulties in lead-free reliability testing • Mixed alloy assembly best practices • ENEPIG intermetallic formation morphologies • PCB plating considerations • Analytical testing techniques • Root causes of production failures • Failure analysis studies — Fine-pitch printing, PoP, 01005 defects and high Tg laminate failures
