"Design Patterns" in Dynamic Languages
Oracle (Downtown Campus)

Topic: "Design Patterns" in Dynamic Languages

The Gang of Four book should have been entitled "Palliatives for Statically Typed Languages", because the recipes it provides are cumbersome solutions to the problems it poses. Using powerful languages makes the solutions in the GoF book look hopelessly complicated. This session shows how to solve the same problems concisely, elegantly, and with far fewer lines of code using the facilities of dynamic languages.

Speaker: Neal Ford

Neal Ford is an Application Architect for ThoughtWorks. He is an architect, designer, and developer of applications, instructional materials, magazine articles, and video/DVD presentations. Neal is also the author of Developing with Delphi: Object-Oriented Techniques (Prentice Hall PTR, 1996), JBuilder 3 Unleashed (SAMS Publishing, 1999), and Art of Java Web Development (Manning, 2003). His language proficiencies include Java, C#/.NET, Ruby, Object Pascal, C++, and C. Neal's primary consulting focus is the design and construction of large-scale enterprise applications.

CODE- Debugging the Gender Gap - Screening
Tillamook Station

JOIN US FOR A MOVIE NIGHT!
$5 suggested Donation. There will be popcorn, candy, pizza, and beer!

Doors will open at 7 pm, the show starts promptly at 8 pm. Older kids are encouraged to come. Tech jobs are growing three times faster than our colleges are producing computer science graduates. By 2020, there will be one million unfilled software engineering jobs in the USA. Through compelling interviews, artistic animation and clever flashpoints in popular culture, CODE documentary examines the reasons why more girls and people of color are not seeking opportunities in computer science and explores how cultural mindsets, stereotypes, educational hurdles and sexism all play roles in this national crisis. Expert voices from the worlds of tech, psychology, science, and education are intercut with inspiring stories of women who are engaged in the fight to challenge complacency in the tech industry and have their voices heard. CODE aims to inspire change in mindsets, in the educational system, in startup culture and in the way women see themselves in the field of coding.

A special thanks to The OpenStack Foundation, a donating sponsor for this screening.

"Girl Rising" at Intel
Intel Hawthorne Farms Building 3 (HF3), Auditorium

Did you ever think you could change the world by pursuing your dreams? But how do you get there and reach your full potential? What does education have to do with all of this? Women can transform their lives by jumping in and getting involved in their dreams. At this event, you’ll see an inspiring movie called Girl Rising.

Want to understand the basics behind all the cool gadgets we use every day? It all starts with circuits! And we’ll have a fun activity for beginners.

What is this event? It’s a combination movie showing and hands-on activity. It’s a chance for high school girls to meet women in technology and a chance for women in technology to be inspired by high school girls!

Who's invited? We’re excited to have an Intel WIN and ChickTech event! If you identify with any of the following, we’d love to have you:

Current and past ChickTech: High School participants Current and past ChickTech volunteers ChickTech supporters Intel WIN members Women in tech and ChickTech supporters

Why should you come? It’s free! There will be snacks.

But seriously, this is an event to watch and reflect on women’s empowerment in tech by watching Girl Rising. We’ll also have an educational (and fun, we promise!) hands-on activity and create your very own circuit.

If you’re a ChickTech: High School participant, we’ll do our best to provide transportation to the event, free of charge.

Who’s hosting?

Intel WIN (Women in Intel Network) Oregon will be co-hosting this event with ChickTech.

"No-Code Cascading Dropdowns in SharePoint List Forms with PowerApps" @ Portland SharePoint User Group
Microsoft Portland Office (Pearl District)

Are you one of the bazillion SharePoint users that have long been confounded by the fact that Microsoft doesn’t offer a no-code way to do filtered and cascading dropdowns in list forms? Sure, we had InfoPath for a while, but InfoPath is now on life support. At long last there is an answer; using PowerApps, we can customize Modern UI list forms to implement filtered and cascading drop downs. And we don’t even have to write any code. In this session Derek Nishino will walk you through implementing filtered and cascading dropdowns, including the formulas and other PowerApps elements needed to make them work.

Agenda:

11:30am - Welcome time & Catering Served 11:45am - Group announcements 12:00pm - Main presentation.

#FullStackPDX : April : Critique

Who are we? We are entrepreneurs, full stack engineers, hackers, continuous learners, but above all, we are a group that loves to work hard and play harder. We organize a variety of content types, and the organizing team believes in delivering the best value for time invested in our events. Companies have launched, founders paired, code taken apart, lessons learned, and more. We are not the typical meetup where a teacher like presenter stands in front of the class and delivers their message. We are a full hands on interactive experience and meetings are successful from the cumulative knowledge and expertise of all members.

Join us for something different.

Join us to learn.

Let’s have fun building our dreams.

WeWork Custom House

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. We start consuming the pizza at 6pm as well. 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.
