    Espruino 101 - How to use Espruino with WiFi

    Treehouse

    Agenda 

    6:30 Arrive and Networking

    6:45 Show and Tell

    What have you been working on since the last meetup? Come and share what you've done. No project too small. A blinking LED is awesome! 

    7:15 Talk - How to use Espruino with WiFi - Roberto Santiago

    Description: By now many if not most of us have had a chance to play with Espruino on the 8266 chip.  One of the prominent features of the 8266 chip is its WiFi capabilities.  The 8266 can serve not only as a WiFi client but also an access point.  It can even do both at the same time.  Impressively, some have been able to network together two 8266 chips from over a kilometer apart. We’ll review the basics of getting up and running with the 8266 and Espruino using flasher.js, go through a few examples of programming the WiFi capabilities and review some data about the distances these chips can cover.

    Speaker Bio: Roberto Santiago is a technologist, data scientist and social justice advocate. He currently spends a lot of time nerding out on the IoT and Hadoop. Professionally, Roberto consults on big data and software projects. He is also founder of a new venture, Code for Nature, focused on bringing about the Internet of Nature. When not working you can find him exploring nature, smoking all sorts of meats and cooking up a feast for family and friends.

    IoTReX: Functional Reactive Programming & Hardware

    Treehouse

    7:15 Talk - IoTReX: Functional Reactive Programming & Hardware - Sam Julien


    Description: In March, Lyza gave us an introduction to johnny-five and Firmata, which opens the door to using virtually any JavaScript technology out there with our microcontrollers. Now we’re going to see how socket.io and RxJS can be used to read, manipulate, and visualize your analog data in real time - even wirelessly! This talk will cover setting up the platform, an introduction to functional reactive programming and RxJS, and some examples of what you can do with this powerful library.

    Speaker Bio: Sam Julien is a developer, musician, and all-around adventurer.  When not working in C# and JavaScript for Energy Trust of Oregon or tinkering on hardware, you’ll probably find him blacksmithing, woodworking, hiking, or learning wilderness survival skills.

    Alternative Educational Pathways: The future of education in adult learning

    Treehouse

    The world is changing rapidly and technology is becoming increasingly pervasive in our everyday lives. Higher education and adult learning changing too. Experiments in project-based learning, design thinking, hybrid pedagogy, and educational communities are already underway – but where will they lead us? And what does all of this mean for the future of adult learning and higher education?

    Join us at our next meetup to dive into these topics! Hear from a variety of perspectives about what this changing landscape of education looks like locally and elsewhere. Sharing their perspectives are:

    • Douglas Tsoi, Portland Underground Grad School
    • Susan Adams, Oregon Health and Sciences University

    And others (TBD) from the realm of workforce development, blended and online learning!

    Portland Elm Welcome Event!

    Treehouse

    This is the very first meeting of the Portland Elm Group. Come meet other cool people! Share your interests, questions, ideas, curiosity, whateva. I'll introduce Elm and why people like it, show off some simple code, and help everyone set up their environments to use Elm.

    I'll have a challenge that people can work on to get a feeling for Elm with some handrails, too.

    IMPORTANT: people completely new to code, computers, JavaScript, Elm, functional programming, and life are welcome. We are excited to welcome people of any age, gender, race, sexuality, or background.

    You may like to check our website for some context about what to expect, in case you're anxious about feeling overwhelmed. Elm is very different from many starting programming languages, but it is NOT intrinsically more difficult than anything you have already mastered. The hardest part of learning anything new is seeing things a different way.

    PDX DevOps Groundup

    Treehouse

    Presentation Summary:

    10 years ago, the world had yet to hear of "DevOps." The software development landscape was cold, unforgiving, and littered with power-mad systems administrators who held all of the keys in your quest for success as a developer.

    OK, so there may be a little hyperbole there. But the software development industry is changing rapidly, and we've gained a lot of ground even just in the past decade. Take a trip down memory lane with Tommy as he explores some of his experiences with systems administration and software development, and how he's learned to apply those lessons to the DevOps approach he enables at Treehouse.

    About the Speaker:

    Tommy Morgan is the Vice President of Engineering at Treehouse, and has been in the software development industry for over a decade. Through his career he's worked with some very interesting companies - from self-described "lobster trap" companies (it's as bad as it sounds) you've never heard of to top brands like Coca-Cola. As a big fan of learning from your mistakes, Tommy leans on his experiences as a developer, system administrator, and manager to guide process and policy across his team of web, mobile, data, and infrastructure engineers.



    About the Venue:

    Treehouse is an online school that looks to bring affordable technology education to people everywhere. We want to help people achieve their dreams by giving them a helpful, highly interactive, and well-designed education experience that lets them learn development in ways that weren't possible (or affordable) even five years ago. As technology becomes more and more a part of our daily lives, it becomes even more essential for people to be able to interact with technology in a meaningful way. Making that education available to everyone, we believe, will change the world. https://teamtreehouse.com/

    Agenda:

    5:30pm Networking with Pizza, Salad, Water, and Soda

    6:00pm Presentation by Tommy Morgan

    7:30-8:00pm Networking


    Pizza provided by sponsors.

    Get started with PHP 7 & Exploiting the Brain for Fun and Profit

    Treehouse

    Let's kick off the new year with our fellow PHP Users at the new Treehouse office! We have two awesome talks lined up for you.

    The next major version of PHP is HERE! Robert Parker will give us an introduction to PHP 7.

    PHP 7 is significantly faster and ships with many new features such as strict mode, return types and more. Despite all these big changes the number of backwards incompatibilities are minimal. We will go over the new features of PHP 7 and discuss some of the backwards compatibility breaks so you can start using PHP 7 when it is released.

    Also join Alena Holligan to learn how to Exploit the Brain for Fun and Profit.

    Sure, you could improve yourself or promote your project the normal way, with hard work and years of slow, incremental progress. Or you could use the brain's built-in cheat codes and hack your way to success. Plagued by a raft of bugs and unwanted features, use these to your advantage to teach, learn and persuade. Tour of some of the most amusing bugs and exploits as we interface with our brains.

    Food and drink will be provided.

    Thanks to Treehouse for hosting this month's meeting!
