    Pragmatic Microservices, by Randy Shoup, VPE @ Stitch Fix

    If you are considering, or in the process of, moving to microservices, you probably want to come to this event. Randy Shoup, a 25-year tech veteran in Silicon Valley, will share his insights into whether and when an organization should consider migrating to microservices and how to do that successfully, referencing examples from Google, eBay, Stitch Fix, as well as many smaller organizations he has worked with.

    The Talk

    One of the most powerful trends in software today is building large systems out of composable microservices. Many large-scale web companies have migrated over time to this architecture – and for good reason. But, as with any powerful technique, microservices come with their own brand of tradeoffs, and it is important to be aware of them before deciding whether they are appropriate in any particular case. They are not for every scale of problem, for every stage of company, or for every team.

    This session takes a pragmatic approach to microservices, and compares them to the alternatives at different stages of company evolution. Using examples from Google, eBay, and Stitch Fix, as well as from smaller organizations, it makes practical suggestions about whether, when, and how an organization should consider adopting a microservices architecture. Assuming microservices are the appropriate choice, it outlines an experience-based, incremental approach to making a successful re-architecture to microservices.


    Dana Scheider

    Dana Scheider will speak about executive dysfunction, a set of cognitive/psychological conditions that affect the brain's planning and organization functions. These conditions affect a lot of neurodivergent folks and a lot of people who have them don't even know what they are. The talk discusses what executive dysfunction is and how to deal with these conditions as an affected individual or someone who has to work with one.

    Portland Ruby Brigade - Senior Rubyists AMA

    New Relic

    Senior Rubyists AMA (tech, careers, "people stuff", whatever)

    In lieu of a formal presentation, this month we're having a panel of senior Rubyists available to answer your questions! What kind of questions, you ask? GREAT QUESTION! This is an "Ask Me Anything" session, so as long as you stay within the bounds of our Code of Conduct, you can ask us... well, anything! OO design, job hunting etiquette, stupid Ruby tricks, Japanese calligraphy, gaming, baking, 3D printing... anything! (We may not actually be able to answer baking questions, though.)

    The AMA starts right after the 7pm announcements and ends when we run out of questions or panelists!

    We'll have pizza & beer starting at 6pm, so stop by early if you want to have dinner and socialize before the presentations.

    AMA 7pm-9pm

    After presentations we'll have more socializing time.
