    Tech Talk: Teaching Haskell in the Real World

    Galois Inc.


    Teaching programming is a hard job. Teaching Haskell is a way harder given its inherent complexity and expectations students have. Nevertheless, there are many approaches to do that. In this talk, I would like to outline the practices that I use and those that I don’t find fruitful. There are quite a few books that can be used for teaching, and I will try to categorize them in terms of their ability to educate a professional Haskell developer. Haskell is a big language, so what should be taught is another crucial question. Should it be a course on functional programming in general or Haskell specifics are fine to teach? For example, there is no clear answer on whether you should attempt teaching something like lenses or stream I/O given limited time. How to teach students about monads? Well, everyone knows the right answer, I will describe my approach. I will also talk about ways to motivate students and to make them learn Haskell by themselves.

    Vitaly Bragilevsky serves as both the Haskell 2020 Language Committee and the GHC Steering Committee member. He works as a Senior Lecturer at the Southern Federal University in Rostov-on-Don, Russia where he teaches undergraduate students functional programming and theory of computations. He is the author of ‘Haskell in Depth’ (Manning Publications, available via Manning’s early access program).

  • AgilePDX - Virtual Pub Lunch: Agile Tools

    Please RSVP at our Meetup event and get the Zoom connection info: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/256511527/

    Has traffic or location prevented you from joining an agile discussion group? Not close to PDX or SEA Then a virtual "pub lunch" may be the answer!

    This agile lunch discussion is a collaborative effort between Seattle and Portland agile minds, and we're hoping it won't stop there. The event is held on a zoom conference line. We've learned using video is best, and you might consider your environment before joining -- find a quiet space where you won't be interrupted or feel self conscious. We're monitoring chat as a back channel, so if you can't find a spot in the discussion, add your question in chat and our hosts will try to work it in.

    This week's topic:

    Agile Tools: what are the best "agile tools"? Our world is filled with apps and programs to help us with our jobs, from work management, communication, white-boarding, prototyping, source control, IDEs, to virtual pairing systems and beyond. Some are very useful, ensuring we communicate and work effectively. And sometimes tools are in the way, and we get stuck in a labyrinth of features & functions.

    Our agile tool discussion will lead with the manifesto value of "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools." Join the discussion to tell us what your favorite tools are to support individuals & interactions. Come and hear what your colleagues think and share your own experiences with tools that have supported you. We are not endorsing any specific tools as part of this chat, but likely many different ones will be discussed.

  • PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Women + Tech Holiday Party


    Registration through Eventbrite [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pdx-women-in-tech-pdxwit-women-tech-holiday-party-tickets-52328766750] is required to gain entry to this event

    Join us Friday, December 14th at p:ear for our 5th Annual Women + Tech Holiday Party, co-organized by PDXWIT and Women Who Code Portland and presented by Nike!

    2018 has been another big year for the PDXWIT and Women Who Code Portland communities, and we are thrilled to come together, for the FIFTH year, to celebrate the holidays and what we’ve accomplished. The theme of the event will be Transforming Technology: Culture and Community. In honor of our theme, PDXWIT and Women Who Code Portland will be recognizing individuals for their great work over the year transforming the technology industry.

    PDXWIT will be honoring two individuals, Best Contributor and Best Speaker. If you or someone you know has been working hard to make PDXWIT a success or spoken at one of our events, please submit your nominations by November 20th. The Best Contributor award will be selected in advance by a panel, and finalists for the Best Speaker Award will perform runoff Lightning Talks at the Holiday Party. The winner will be selected by text-to-vote.

    Women Who Code regularly celebrates their members' achievements with the #ApplaudHer hashtag. The #ApplaudHer hashtag highlights victories such as accepting a new position, receiving a promotion, speaking at a conference or meeting a personal goal. The concept is simple: Women Who Code believes that recognition can create change and that rewriting public perceptions can transform tech. During the Women + Tech Holiday Party, Women Who Code will be announcing the Technical Leadership and Rising Tech Star award winners, chosen from the submissions received. Please submit your nominations before the end of day on December 1, 2018.

    While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short program to hear from our sponsors and introduce and announce awards.

    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 those hiring to ensure people get connected.

    • a #GiveGuide table with raffle prizes and other goodies for folks who decide to support PDXWIT that evening.

    Music will be provided by Claudia Martinez and DJ Mienne.

    AgilePDX: Lean Coffee in the North

    Please RSVP on our Meetup page to receive the latest updates: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/kfcvlqyxqbvb/

    Join us for coffee/tea or beverage of your choice and fun discussions about how to overcome challenges we face or to share about Agile-inspired and other topics we agree or disagree with. This event is aimed at getting people in the North and NE areas of Portland together to facilitate discussions. It's not exclusive to people that live in the North and NE, just closer to those parts of the city to make it easier to come out. (If you want something other than tea or coffee, you'll have to bring it with you. We'll have hot water and cups available.)

    Percipio Consulting Group is opening up their offices to host this event. Percipio is a business consulting firm that helps companies identify opportunities for improvement and successfully implement meaningful changes. That means more efficient processes, shored-up controls, a technology solution that really works for you, or all of the above. They have helped many companies, both Fortune 500 and mid-sized, navigate complex projects by truly understanding business needs and defining up front what success will look like.

    Parking: Use the Gotham Building Parking lot on the corner of N Page St and N Borthwick Ave.

    Building Entry: Entry to the building is best through the door by Little Gotham Coffee. We'll have someone meeting on time attendees at the door. For those that run a few minutes late due to traffic or other reasons out of your control, there will be directions at the door on how to contact someone to let you in.

    We'll spend the first few minutes gathering discussion ideas, then roll right into the smooth easy cadence of the lively chatter.

    New to Lean Coffee?

    It's a great way to have real, focused dialogue and we often discuss matters of agile, lean and such - but anything goes. As far as the mechanics, here's the format we'll follow:

    Step 1: Everybody writes down proposed topics on stickies, placing them in the center of the table. Take as much time as needed, but typically takes only 3-5 minutes (or whenever coffee is ready).

    Step 2: Each topic is briefly described by its writer to get a flavor for the subject (15-30 seconds typically per sticky).

    Step 3: Each person gets five votes which they indicate by marking the voted-for sticky with their Sharpie. Mark with a plus + if you agree with the topic and want to discuss it, or a minus - if you disagree and want to discuss it, mark it with a dot if you want to hear the discussion and maybe join in. You can put all votes on one, one across many, however you feel. Each mark counts as one vote.

    Step 4: The top vote-getting stickies are placed in the ToDo column, ordered by the stickies with the most votes at the top. In an Agile fashion, we'll use groupings of ToDo, Doing, Done and Lessons learned.

    Step 5: Each of these stickies are discussed for 5 minutes, most votes first. The facilitator takes a quick "Cesar" (thumbs up/down) vote at the five-minute timer, and she moves on for three more minutes if the discussion still has majority interest. When complete, move the sticky over to the Done column. Rinse and repeat.

    Step 6: wrap-up thoughts at the end - what one idea or person did you most enjoy, then break for home/drinks/cover.

  • PLUG Linux Clinic

    Free Geek

    The Linux Clinic meets once a month on the third Sunday from 1 - 5 pm at Free Geek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue, Portland, 97214.

    Bring your Linux computer that is being a brat and we'll teach it some manners. Or bring your computer that has some evil operating system on it and we'll send it home with a shiny, clean Linux distro. Or just come and look over shoulders to see what Linux is all about.

    If you already know Linux well, the Clinic is also a good place to learn how to help users troubleshoot problems. It's excellent training for tech support work in Linux.

    We have monitors, mice, keyboards, and miscellanous other perifpherals, so generally all you need to bring is the box.

    There will also be coffee and people usually bring munchies as well. After all, you can't do computers on an empty tummy.

  • #FullStackPDX : December 2018 Christmas Charity Drive 4 Portland Rescue Mission

    Just like the last 3 years, our final meetup of the year is always based on a charity drive. This year we have selected the Portland Rescue Mission https://www.portlandrescuemission.org/. All ticket proceeds will be donating to this business bringing both value and impact to our local community.

    Just like fight club, if this is your first night attending, you have to present.

    Discussing your startup, recent project, code reviews, business ideas, etc. are all applicable. There is not a required length of time to present. This can be a live prototype or even a set of powerpoint slides. You do not have to know how to code to present your dream, and we are HERE TO HELP you. Presentations are meant to be collaborative, not the traditional meetup style where a presenter talks like a teacher for a very long time and saves questions for the end. We use a timer and the group dynamic works to collaboratively prevent cross talk and side conversations. So bring your computer, fun spirit and desire to learn, and let's have fun.

    Signups through meetup.com are required and seats are limited, so buy your tickets early because we usually sell out. We are self funded, and 100% of the revenue received is put back into the meetup costs. We will have top shelf pizza from Crown PDX (http://www.imperialpdx.com/the-crown/) so come HUNGRY for dinner!!

    Doors open at 6pm and we kick off on time. After the concert of presentations we will walk over to Bailey's Taproom (http://www.baileystaproom.com/) to continue the evening.

    Location: WeWork Customs House : Room 1C : When you check in ask for CP Handheld, they are our sponsor. The room is right to the left as you walk in.

    Tech Talk: Runtime Monitors for Hybrid Mobile Apps and Other Stories

    Galois Inc.


    The formidable growth of the cyber-threat landscape today is accompanied by an imperative need for providing high-assurance software solutions. In the last decade, binary hardening via In-lined Reference Monitoring (IRMs) has been firmly established as a powerful and versatile technology, providing superior security enforcement for many platforms. IRM frameworks rewrite untrusted binary code, inserting runtime checks to produce safe, self-monitoring code; IRMs are equipped with the ability to enforce a rich set of history-based policies, without requiring access to source code.

    In this talk, we present HybridGuard, an IRM framework for hybrid mobile apps. Hybrid mobile frameworks, such as React Native, Ionic, PhoneGap etc., are rapidly becoming the mainstay technology for developing mobile apps. Here, the developer need only write web code, and the framework automatically ports to popular mobile platforms such as Android, iOS etc. While slick, quick, and cost-effective, the exposure of sensitive mobile device resources to web content dramatically increases the attack surface, rendering the apps vulnerable to a slew of dangerous attacks such as code-injection, fracking, cross-site scripting, tapjacking, amongst others.

    HybridGuard allows developers fine-grained access control and rich policy enforcement over hybrid mobile apps, protecting against the dangerous vulnerabilities that web code inclusion brings. We will discuss the research challenges and successes on adapting the IRM technology to secure this complex, cross-platform mobile space, and probe into its natural extension into the world of Internet-of-Things.


    Dr. Meera Sridhar is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Software and Information Systems at UNC Charlotte. Her research interests span language-based and systems security, formal methods, and their application to web, mobile and Internet-of-Things security. Her research is currently supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Dr. Sridhar is a member of ACM, ACM-W and WiCyS.

    Dr. Sridhar received her Bachelor’s in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in 2002, graduating with University and College Honors. She received her Master’s in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004, and her Ph.D. in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Dallas in 2014. Dr. Sridhar is an International Baccalaureate Diploma holder from the International School Manila, Philippines.

  • AgilePDX: Using Science for Agile Improvement: A Hands-on Simulation


    Please RSVP on our Meetup page to receive the latest updates: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/256753403/

    Scientific thinking is a life skill that forms the basis for creativity at work and the successful pursuit of seemingly unattainable goals. The Improvement Kata (IK) is a four-step scientific striving pattern that is practiced in many business organizations. It makes scientific thinking a teachable skill that anyone can learn.

    This fun, high-energy, simulation uses a simple hands-on activity to step participants through the Improvement Kata pattern. Working in a 5 person team, you'll follow the Improvement Kata pattern to (1) face a challenge, (2) measure where you are, (3) establish a next goal and (4) experiment toward that goal in three-minute iterations.

    Together, we'll discover new insights for improving agile practices. As an individual you'll learn a fun activity you can repeat with your own teams in under an hour. And, there may be prizes for members of the winning team!

    Adam Light's Bio:

    Adam Light helps leaders deliver results and improve their organizations by combining scientific thinking with lean and agile methods. He is an experienced consultant, teacher, and coach who drives systemic transformation through a focus on leadership capabilities and practical skills. Adam began his career as a software developer before becoming a manager of projects and people; he has more than 25 years of software industry experience.

  • CTRL-H - PDX Hackerspace - CTRL-H Open House

    Thursdays are open house night here at CTRL-H. Jon and Melinda are available during this time to give guided tours, answer questions and show you all that the hackerspace has to offer.

    We don't have an opening ceremony or any formal meeting. This is a time for you to eavesdrop on other peoples projects and get support on a project that you may need help with. Bring your laptop, projects, inventions, your technical toys and your broken microwave to CTRL-H and hack with friends.
