    Freelancing: Pricing, Proposals and Payments

    Virtual

    The struggle is real when it comes to charging for your freelance services. If you’re like other side-hustlers today, you may be asking yourself one (or more!) of these questions:

    What language should a proposal, SOW, or contract include? What is the best price for my services at my level… that my clients won’t fight me on? How do I get paid on time, every time? What do I do when I really want to turn down a potential client, but don’t want to sound like a jerk doing it? How do I keep my invoices, payments, and other numbers organized?

    We will share the straightforward answers to these and other questions about freelancing pricing, proposals & payments.

    PDXWIT Presents: BIPOC in Tech: Reclaiming the Outdoors

    Virtual

    Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMofuypqjsjGtLme-rED9_sa8LXmXDnGXJ5 is required to gain entry to this virtual event

    Join us for a special summer edition of our BIPOC in Tech event series. We will explore how leveraging technology can help reduce the barriers BIPOC folks face when it comes to the outdoors.

    The outdoors can offer a place of peace, joy, or even a simple moment to step away from our computers and unplug. From your window, it can seem so accessible, yet forests, mountain tops, and swimming holes are often lacking diversity. We are here to help change that! Whether it’s for walking around in your neighborhood park, gardening, fishing, hiking, rock climbing, cycling, etc., share your favorite apps or tech that help you get outside, stay safe, and reclaim the spirit of our ancestors.

    The presentation portion of this event is open to everyone, but please be aware that the perspectives and needs of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) will be centered. After the presentation portion, white allies in attendance will be asked to leave in order to create dedicated, small breakout spaces for BIPOC attendees.

    We will have ASL interpretation and live closed captioning during the event and available for breakout rooms.

    Why are Asians labeled as Model Minorities? Join PDXWIT and our host Avenue Agency for a panel discussion where we’ll debunk the Model Minority Myth, a stereotypical idea that has caused confusion, misunderstanding, and harm to the Asian community for generations. Recent attacks on Asian Americans and Asians have sparked national discussions around Anti-Asian Racism, Asian Hate, and Asian Culture- but why did it take so long to come to light?

    Moderated by Padmashree Koneti, this conversation will include panelists Zhou Fang, Hazel Valdez and Deana Solis. Panelists will share their personal and interpersonal experiences as Asian Americans and Asians in Portland and the U.S. Their collective lived experience gives us a glimpse of how communities can rally together and create a united voice that rejects the model minority myth.

    We will have ASL interpretation and live closed captioning throughout.

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

    Application Security -- The Framework, Processes and Tools to Secure Your Apps

    Virtual

    RSVP: https://www.meetup.com/OWASP-Portland-Chapter/events/277480846/

    Excerpt:

    Traditionally, breaches that make the news are about stealing data and that data being resold for financial gains. Think Target, Ashley Madison, Marriott and so many more. Recently a spotlight was put on supply chain security via the SolarWinds breach and how that affected many companies. The adversaries were able to inject malicious code into applications that have a lot or rights and are widely deployed in many organizations, small and large alike.

    We will discuss the framework, your SDLC (SDL, SSDLC, etc.) – Secure Development Lifecycle – to lay out how you are going to develop and secure your applications. Customers care about this. Once you have your SDLC, you need to define your processes, select your tools, integrate them into your SDLC and finally automate those tools. This is not a short process and often multiple iterations are necessary to get to a good place. The goal of this presentation is to make you aware of a variety of tools that are out there, the various steps along the way of your SDLC you need to take and how to complete each of these steps.
