    Why Privacy Matters

    Online

    Digital and physical surveillance are at all-time highs, and privacy is dissipating from our society. But why should we care about privacy if we have nothing to hide?

    In this session, AJ Rice will discuss how a lack of privacy affects us as individuals and as a society. Using specific examples, Rice will cover the direct consequences of a world without privacy and also the more subtle ways an absence of privacy undermines the rights of those who have nothing to hide.

    After the presentation and Q&A, the session will conclude with a guided hands-on exercise in threat-modeling geared at helping attendees better understand the individual risks posed to them by different types of surveillance.

    This is part-2 of a special 3-part privacy workshop in June. If you miss part 1, you’re still more than welcome to attend this session:

    Part 3: Monday 6/28 – What we can do about it

    PDXWIT Presents: How to Study for a Technical Interview

    Virtual

    Registration through Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_FBl4eltmTNaV2mOZ62CQ_w is required to gain entry to this virtual event

    Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful proposition, so some engineers from Amazon Web Services (AWS) got together to create this training tailored to technical job seekers. In tech, it is hard to know what to expect or how to prepare as each company evaluates its candidates differently. Luckily, some upfront investment and preparation can really go a long way in helping you distinguish yourself from the rest of the candidates. In this virtual seminar we will review some interviewing practices we’ve witnessed through our careers for technical interviews and present helpful tips to prepare. We plan to cover many beneficial topics: Morning preparation, attire, and mindset Non-technical preparation How to study for the coding interview How to execute the coding test

    Due to the level of interaction required, attendance will be capped at 50.

    Agenda: 11:30 p.m. - Event begins 11:33 p.m.- Intros and announcements 11:40 p.m. - Session begins 1:00 p.m. - Event ends

    Mission: We are building a better tech industry by creating access, dismantling barriers and fueling belonging. Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
