    Ansible PDX: Intro and Inventory Deep Dive

    Ansible Portland is back!

    For our first 2019 Meetup, we'll have two short presentations, one beginner and one advanced, and plenty of time to socialize.

    First: Ansible in 20 Minutes

    For those of you without a lot of experience with Ansible, Josh Berkus can teach you to be productive using the Ansible automation platform in 20 minutes. Yes, really! Follow along this all-demo presentation as he explores Ansible commands, modules, playbooks, and even automating AWS.

    Next: Ansible inventory for fun and profit

    Matt Davis, Ansible Core Engineer, will dive deep into Ansible inventory, with a focus on dynamic inventory and the new inventory plugin system that supersedes inventory scripts.

    This meetup is hosted by WeWork, and refreshments are sponsored by Red Hat Ansible.

    Due to WeWork Policies, you need to bring a Photo ID with you to check in. Thanks!

    PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) September Happy Hour

    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-september-happy-hour-tickets-49177317681] is required to gain entry to this event

    Join us for Happy Hour at Schrodinger on September 18th.

    We talk a lot about the importance of technical skills at every level of the technology industry, but our soft skills can be just as important, if not more! This month we are focusing on how we can nurture and leverage our soft-skills and natural strengths at work. To facilitate this discussion we’ve set the conversation starter to “What are your go-to soft skills at work?”

    While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase three women in our community.

    An employee of Schrodinger will provide an introduction to the company and share open job opportunities.

    Shauna Levy, of Shauna Levy Strengths + Leadership LLC, will tell us how understanding our natural strengths (the things we do without thinking) can be applied to improve our performance and satisfaction at work.

    Caroline Clyburn, licensed massage therapist, will talk about self-care, and how it relates to health, happiness, and performance!

    During the event, we’ll have more to do than free-form networking:

    An Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look for Meg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

    Table Topics to help break the ice.

    A section for job seekers and our sponsors who are hiring, to ensure people get connected.


    4:30 p.m. - Doors open/Networking

    5:30 p.m. - Introductions, Announcements + Lightning Speakers

    6:30 p.m. - Event ends

    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.

    Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
