    Cinder Connect Conversations

    Online (Zoom)

    An honest panel discussion centering the identities and experiences of our friends and colleagues across the Latinx & Hispanic culture.

    Hosted by Cinder, we will continue to examine what equity and inclusion means for different and intersecting identities in these panel discussions throughout 2022.

    Our intention with these conversations is to interrogate the integrity and efficacy of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion programming in our workplaces and communities.

    We are curious to explore the question: Is Equity and Inclusion in the workplace and beyond?

    Please help us spread the word!

  • A Great Mindset, Pre and Post Coding Bootcamps with Nicson Martinez

    Nicson Martinez, Tech Academy graduate, will be joining us to discuss how to keep a great mindset pre and post-coding boot camp.

    Coming to the US from Honduras at ten years old opened up a lot of opportunities for Nicson, especially in the realm of technology. After growing up in The Bronx and going on to get his BS in Computer Information Systems, Nicson actually ended up getting out of the tech industry for a number of years after an unsuccessful attempt at learning to code. But with the desire still there after all those years, he decided to try again and more seriously pursue his interest in coding, so he attended The Tech Academy.

    Nicson graduated in 2019 and is currently working as a Software Developer at Microsoft.

    In this Talk, Nicson will share his experience with The Tech Academy, landing a job and will share tips on how to keep a great mindset through the process and after graduation.

    Join us Friday, September 30th at 1 pm Pacific Time (2p MT, 3p CT, 4p ET) in our Google Meet room.

    AWS Architect Learning Path

    The cloud is not a thing. It's a vast, interconnected web of things. An ecosystem of things. The Architect Path will help you understand this ecosystem, how different services interact with one another, and how to make the best use of them, while also going deep on services considered foundational for day-to-day cloud architects.

    Fireside Chat with Jeff Booth & Troy Cross (Portland BitDevs Meetup)

    Kimpton Hotel Vintage

    We are so thrilled to announce that Jeff Booth will be coming IN PERSON!

    FIRESIDE CHAT WITH TROY CROSS AND JEFF BOOTH You certainly will not want to miss this one! Expect a fascinating discussion between two of the brightest minds in the Bitcoin ecosystem, followed by a Q&A for the audience. Come prepared with questions!

    Jeff Booth is a Canadian Entrepreneur, Technology Leader, Author, and Strategic Adviser. In January 2020, Jeff released his now famous book “The Price of Tomorrow – Why Deflation is Key to an Abundant Future”. In it, he offers his provocative thesis about the current state of our economies and what must happen to enable a brighter future. Since then, he's become well known in the Bitcoin world, making the podcast rounds and providing a fascinating perspective on the global financial system. Most recently, Jeff co-founded and is the general partner of ego death capital, a Bitcoin ecosystem venture fund.

    Troy Cross is a Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Reed College where he teaches courses on the philosophy of religion, color, and the philosophy of mind, as well as lecturing in the humanities program. Prior to coming to Reed in 2010, he held positions at Yale and Merton College, Oxford. Troy's philosophical research interests center on foundational issues in metaphysics and epistemology, but has also been involved in bitcoin for over a decade, cultivating interest in a number of bitcoin-related issues in that time, most of all, the question of bitcoin mining’s present and future environmental impact.

    The Socratic Seminar events are formatted to foster debate, information sharing, and lively discussion. Inspired by other Bitdevs around the country, this is an event for those interested in discussing and participating in the research and development of Bitcoin and related protocols.

    We'll spend time discussing technical components: pull requests in the Bitcoin Core, lnd, network statistics, research papers, technical blog posts, and other relevant content.

    To complete the meeting, members are free to present open-source projects, companies, research, and other relevant materials.

    Additional Details

    We will be going to "Independent Sports Bar & Grill" (225 SW Broadway #100, Portland, OR 97205; across the street) after the event from 7:30pm-9pm.

  • Six Leadership Traps and How to Avoid Them with Sean Lemson

    Sean Lemson will be joining us to discuss six traps that many leaders fall into and how to avoid them.

    On the surface, these traps seem to be good leadership practices, but they almost always result in poor outcomes for teams and organizations. Despite this repeated failure to achieve what they want, leaders continue to fall into these traps.

    Whether you’re a current leader or an aspiring one, you should know these six traps well and build up strong defenses against them. Step one is awareness and Sean will share the rest with you in this Tech Talk.

    Sean is an Organizational and Team Performance Coach and certified Executive Coach with over a decade of experience helping companies transform. He founded Motivated Outcomes, LLC with one mission: To help companies become places people want to work.

    Join us Friday, October 7th at 1 pm Pacific Time (2p MT, 3p CT, 4p ET) in our Google Meet room.
