    Portland Elasticsearch Meetup: Jeff Bryner from Mozilla, Kibana 4 and Shield Preview

    Jama South

    Join us at Jama South for food, drink, and Elasticsearch discussion.

    Our Guest Speaker: Jeff Bryner ( @0x7eff ) is a 20+year infosec veteran/addict. Speaker at 3 DEF CONs, 3 Bsides, and 1 RSA (but he didn't mean it), he stands accused of re-writing everything in python, integrating security tools into 3D worlds with kinectasploit and taunting the Demo Gods in every presentation.

    His Presentation: Hackers have all the fun. With slick, integrated, real-time, open suites like metasploit, armitage, SET, and lair they quickly seek out targets, share exploits, gain footholds and usually win.

    The time has come for defense to get the same capabilities in an open-source platform dedicated to defense and based on modern technology. To this end the operations security group at Mozilla has developed MozDef: The Mozilla Defense Platform to take on traditional SIEM functionality of event management, alerting and correlation and expand the real-time capabilities of the defender into automated defense and shared incident response.

    This presentation will cover the MozDef platform, its use of Elasticsearch and it's SIEM capabilities with as much live demo as the gods will allow.

    The rest of the Agenda:

    We also plan on going deep on Kibana 4, the powerful new version of Kibana that takes advantage of the aggregations API in Elasticsearch. A rewrite from the ground up, visualizations are now powered by D3js and provides an enhances workflow capability allowing you to Discover, Visualize and Dashboard your data for insights.

    Shield is right around the corner and we will be giving an intro to it at the meetup. Learn how to enable access control, document level security, SSL and more!

    We will also have a few Elasticsearch Solution Architects in town so its a great chance to get your questions answered by people that are in the field every day helping customers succeed with Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana (The ELK Stack).

    Hope to see you all there!

    pdxUX - Principles for the Working Product Designer

    Jama South

    We're very pleased to have Chris Rivard, product designer and design manager specializing in data product design and visualization, presenting. Working at the intersection of business and design, Chris has spent 15 years bringing fresh insight, visual communication and design thinking to both large enterprises and growing startups.

    A product designer's goal is to get products into the hands of users - to ship it, and get feedback. But as the steps to achieve that goal grow more complex, we're often faced with situations far outside the purview of what we consider “design”. In this talk, Chris will cover what it takes to bring a product from sketch to market while navigating the complexities inherent in software product design. He'll leave attendees with practical tips for dealing with those "non-design" situations. Hint: It's all design.

    OpenStack Northwest Users Group Meetup

    Jama South

    You don’t have to choose between Clouds, here in Portland at least! The OpenStack NW team worked with AWS meetup organizers to provide the best value to the Portland Cloud community; we agreed to line both events in close proximity allowing you to head straight to Jama Software South facility at 6:00pm, immediately after attending AWS meetup from 4:00pm.

    This would make for a very exciting and super rich Wednesday night, why? Because we have Cameron Seader flying over to share the latest in SUSE Cloud then…

    We’re bringing the latest OpenStack projects directly from Yahoo’s building C in the Silicon Valley as we join the SFBay OpenStack meetup over live two-way video link.

    And for some fun time, our sponsor ProFocus is giving away a Kindle for the first correct answer of a quiz question from one of the presentations.

    On the agenda:

    6:00 - 6:15 Introduction, pizza and beer (RSVP – Please!)

    6:15 - 7:00 SUSE Cloud-

    OpenStack Heat provides a framework for predefining a structured service, and allows you to instantiate that service in an automated manner. Walk through the process of creating a Heat template for a multi-tiered web application that will include multiple image templates, custom networking, and volume storage.

    7:00 - 8:30 SFBay Simulcast – Projects Murano and Mistral

    One of the fastest growing parts of OpenStack for the last release cycle is orchestration and platform-level capabilities. Different aspects of orchestration are represented by a number of the initiatives. During this session Mirantis engineers will talk about two projects from orchestration area which were initiated by Mirantis - Murano and Mistral.

    Murano is a project which brings Application Catalog features to OpenStack cloud. Application Catalog provides an integration layer for 3rd party applications to be deployed via self-service UI for OpenStack cloud. The discussion, driven by Alex Tivelkov - a Murano technical lead, will cover Application Catalog use cases and their value for cloud users. Some of the use cases will be illustrated during the live demo followed by roadmap overview and Q&A.

    As the second part of this meetup Mistral project will be presented. Mistral is a new initiative for workflow as a service implementation announced at the latest OpenStack summit in HK. Workflow as a service provides an ability to execute tasks in a distributed manner defined by simple DSL instead of writing a python code. Mistral provides features like event triggered tasks, scheduled tasks as a part of DSL. Renat Akhmerov - a Mistral technical lead will cover Mistral use cases, architecture overview and live demo for Mistral PoC followed by roadmap discussion and Q&A.

    At the end of the meetup there will be a general Q&A session about integration between new and existing OpenStack services including Heat, Trove, Murano, Savanna and Mistral.

    Special thanks to our sponsors SUSE Linux, Jama Software ProFocus.

    Some of the core contributors, developers and implementers of OpenStack are flying over to Portland to bring you the latest and greatest in Cloud storage. And generous sponsors are buying us dinner and beer. This meetup is quickly growing to be one of the most interesting events in the Northwest for those wanting to stay on top of advancement in the future of computing.

    Meetup Agenda


    6:00 - 6:30 - Check in, pizza, beer and networking.

    6:30 - 7:00 – Introduction, OpenStack and your career - Al Kari (DetaCloud)

    Accelerate your career and increase your value to your current or potential employers. Learn about shortcuts to quickly acquire some of the hottest skills in Cloud computing.


    7:00 - 7:45 - OpenStack Block Storage (Cinder) - Mike Perez (DreamHost)

    Today there are many different storage solutions to choose from. It can be overwhelming from a cloud provider's perspective to offer many options for their users, let alone provide a consistent set of tools with each vendor offering their own interface. The OpenStack Block Storage project Cinder provides an API to talk to many different vendor solutions, in which other applications or OpenStack programs can talk to. We'll first examine the difference between block and object storage. That'll lead us into having an introduction to Cinder, and an opportunity to review the architecture, vendor driver plugin model, current features, and upcoming features for the IceHouse release.


    7:45 - 8:15 - OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) - Richard Raseley (for SwiftStack)

    This presentation will provide an overview of the OpenStack object storage platform "Swift", its history, contributors, example use cases, and features


    8:15 - 8:45 - EMC and OpenStack - Jeremy Keen - (EMC)

    As a Corporate Sponsor of OpenStack, EMC has contributed Cinder drivers for VNX, VMAX, and most recently ViPR. EMC ViPR is a lightweight, software-only solution that transforms your existing storage environment into a simple, extensible and open platform, that can deliver fully automated storage services and realize the full potential of the Software-Defined Data Center. ViPR includes an open source Cinder driver as well as an object storage engine with Swift and Amazon S3 APIs. We will dive into the integration of ViPR and OpenStack and learn about methods for delivering IT-as-a-Service while avoiding storage vendor lock-in.


    8:45 - 9:00 – OPEN MIKE (YOU)

    Working on an interesting project, or have an idea to share with the group? Maybe you have a question or an announcement to make. Here’s your chance.

    About the speakers:

    The Technical Services Talent Paradox: Solutions to the Talent Crunch

    Jama South

    In today's technology services industry, it is increasingly difficult to source, attract, and retain top technical services talent. The demand for services has evolved from traditional models to much more complex solutions. This evolution makes finding employees skilled to support increasingly complex technical services a constant challenge. Why? Because we now have to seek professionals with the right balance of technical chops and business acumen.

    The goal of this event is to address these issues with an open discussion forum with some of the industry’s top services brands, discussing best practices and processes for talent acquisition and retention. You will leave with an arsenal of real-world knowledge that will help your organization attract better and more qualified prospective employees, improve the quality of new hires, and retain the valuable team members that your organization worked so hard to acquire in the first place.
