    Bend, Eugene & Portland Gather for Microservices Architecture

    Technology teams are increasingly turning to microservices to solve common problems associated with the traditional, monolithic architecture style. While many become focused on the system architecture itself, the value of microservices cannot be fully realized without a mature CI/CD capability to go with it. This technology benefits the lower side of coding, therefore inviting less errors and being lower maintenance, but is it right for every business?

    Join us Oct 3rd for a multi-regional event featuring experts from HealthSparq, IDX Broker and FiveTalent as they review the path their companies experienced when they adopted microservices principles.

    The session will bring up a discussion on the people, process and technology considerations that are required to move to this type of lightweight, flexible software delivery model. Additionally, our panelists will be sharing their learning lessons inclcuding how and why microservices has worked for them, as well as areas of improvement.

    PDX Women In Tech (PDXWIT) presents - "Most Likely to Succeed" Viewing

    RSVP here - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-presents-most-likely-to-succeed-viewing-tickets-28317818357

    PDX Women In Tech, Jama Software and Code Fellows are partnering to screen Most Likely to Succeed, a documentary about the school systems that are preparing our kids with skills relevant to the modern work place. This documentary has an emphasis on STEM education, hands-on experience, a "makers" mentality to solving problems and using creativity in all aspects of life.

    Director Greg Whiteley (Mitt, 2014 Sundance Film Festival) locates the source of the problem not in the economy but in our educational system, which was developed at the dawn of the Industrial Age to train obedient workers. With a world of information available a click away, and the modern workplace valuing skills like collaboration and critical thinking, our rote-based system of learning has become outdated and ineffective. Watch as the documentary unfolds and shows viable solutions.

    Here are some articles that summarize the film and provide some insight into why you should take this opportunity for this screening to come watch it with us-

    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering: educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    OWASP: Social Engineering -- How to Avoid Being a Victim 

    Social engineering (an act of exploiting people instead of computers) is one of the most dangerous tools in the hacker’s toolkit to breach internet security. The Ubiquiti Networks fell victim to a $39.1 M fraud as one of its staff members was hit by a fraudulent “Business Email Compromise” attack. Thousands of grandmas and grandpas are victim of phishing emails and are forced to pay ransom to have their data released.

    In this new millennium, the cyber security game has changed significantly from annoying harmless viruses to stealing vital personal data, causing negative financial impact, demanding ransom, and spreading international political feud. Anyone with presence in the Cyber space has to protect himself/herself, the infrastructure, customers, and also deal with the legal repercussions in the event of a breach. In this talk Bhushan will present the different types of social engineering practices including use of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, the bad guys successfully use. The victims can range from the “C” levels (CEO, CFO, CTO) down to the individual contributors in an organization to a grandparent on her laptop. The presentation will also discuss a variety of ordinary but effective measures such as awareness campaign that organizations can take to minimize the risk of breach.


    Speaker Bhushan Gupta

    A principal consultant at Gupta Consulting LLC., Bhushan Gupta is passionate about the integration of web application security into Agile software development lifecycle. His interests extend to Social Engineering and Attack Surface Analysis. Bhushan worked at Hewlett-Packard for 13 years in various roles including quality engineer, software process architect, and software productivity manager. He then developed a strong interest in web application security while working as a quality engineer for Nike Inc. After 5 years at Nike, he retired and since has been studying various facets of web application security. Bhushan is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt (HP and ASQ) and an adjunct faculty member at the Oregon Institute of Technology in Software Engineering.

    This meeting will be recorded! Feel free to tune in live, or catch the recording later (~24hrs after event).

    Dust Off Your Brand Strategy

    Nearly every marketer has been through a rigorous brand or rebrand exercise. We invest hours, weeks, and months conducting interviews, brainstorming which car or dog breeed or luxury brand we relate to most closely. Posters and detailed pwer points are made and distributed and the work pays off, for a while...

    Frequent use fades into a quick glance and, after a few months have passed, the posters end up out of sight and out of mind. Despite the time and effort invested, everyone goes back to their off-brand routines and inconsistency creeps back.

    Join the TAO Marketing Committee as we host a panel of brand strategy experts and cover practical ways to keep the momentum going long after your branding project is complete.

    On Tuesday, June 21st a panel of Oregon's tech marketing leaders who will share real-world stories and advice from the school of hard knocks. All attendees are encouraged to engage in the conversation, share experiences, and seek answers to their questions in this interactive event.

    "DevOps is dead, long live DevOps!"

    The term DevOps did not use to be widely known, now it has become a fairly common term. With that wide adoption also comes misuse and misunderstanding. Join Tom as he talks about his journey through modern software development and his quest for the adoption of the culture and mindset of DevOps rather than making it a a title that causes recruiters emails to flood his inbox. This will be an interactive session where Tom shares stories and examples from the last several years of building teams and changing cultures within organizations in Portland.

    ProductTank October

    We're launching ProductTank here in PDX! ProductTank is an opportunity for Product professionals to learn and network. For our first meetup, we have a great speaker lined up and hopefully one more to announce!

    Growing Your User Base with Better Onboarding

    Frustration drives people to sign up for products in hopes of improving their lives. The space between the intolerable “before” and the ideal “after” is your project’s “improvement trajectory.” And once this is defined, it’s easier to identify key moments in the customer journey and match them to design patterns.

    Samuel shares strategies that help you stop hemorrhaging signups. You’ll learn to create quality onboarding experiences that target your users’ frustrations and move them from A to B in their lives, instead of just A to B in your app.

    About Samuel

    Samuel Hulick runs UserOnboard.com and is the author of The Elements of User Onboarding. He’s combined UX savvy and a cat-like curiosity for measuring UX impact to become an expert in onboarding. His approach is shaped by over a decade of web experience, theories taken from behavioral psychology, cognitive development, video game design, and even filmmaking.
