Private Surveillance
Online

At the last several meetings, we looked at how municipalities use surveillance technologies and how the public can have input into the acquisition and use process related to these systems.

But what about private entities? How are they using technology to surveil us? And what happens when private organizations fund surveillance tech or enter into contracts with city governments to provide surveillance services?

This month, local Portland tech journalist Kate Kaye will join us to talk about the ways companies and other private entities are surveilling the public and what that means for our privacy and government policies for tech and data use. Kate is the creator of the the City Surveillance Watch podcast, a three-part scripted series delving into the dichotomy of smart city tech and its surveillance implications. She also is one of the only journalists anywhere to track closely the saga of Portland’s city mobility tracking project with Sidewalk Labs sibling Replica and the city’s groundbreaking facial recognition ban, which outlaws private use of facial recognition.

We'll discuss ownership and sharing of the data collected and how we might get back control of what information is collected and how it's used.

Remote Tech Talk at the Guild -- Intro to Game Design in JavaScript
PDX Code Guild

With the HTML5 canvas API, web developers have the ability to draw and animate in 2D using JavaScript. And from there, it just takes a bit of structure to design a simple game.

In this Tech Talk, we will use a rudimentary game engine to design a 2D Platformer in Vanilla JavaScript. We will focus on these game design concepts: - Collision Detection & Resolution - Object-Oriented Programming and Inheritance - Trigonometric Functions for Smooth Animations - State Machines - Events - And More

We will also discuss the many differences (and some similarities) between game design and web development.

This Tech Talk is for programmers and gamers of all levels of experience. A basic understanding of JavaScript and the canvas API will help attendees follow along. Refer to this guide for an intro to drawing with canvas: https://github.com/pjz987/guides/blob/master/docs/canvas-tutorial.md

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.

Portland Accessibility and User Experience Meetup (PDX A11Y UX) - Whole-to-Part versus Part-to-Whole: How Sighted and Blind Web Navigation Differs
Online

When loading a web page, a sighted page visitor can take in almost all information at a glance and home in on what they want to explore — a whole-to-part approach. A blind screen reader user, on the other hand, must reverse the process and gather bits of information through page exploration to create the full picture — a part-to-whole approach. If sighted design stakeholders are not mindful of the differences in these strategies, they may disregard helpful bits of information that allow the most efficient exploration and understanding for blind visitors. Using parallels from pedestrian navigation such as the importance of “landmarks” and “boundaries,” our presenter Dr. Michele A. Williams will help create common ground between sighted and blind communities to ensure blind screen reader users are best accommodated in Web and other digital design.

Event begins at 6:00pm; join early starting at 5:45pm for networking.

Agenda:

  • 5:45–6:00pm Networking
  • 6:00–6:15pm Introductions & announcements
  • 6:15–7:00pm Presentation
  • 7:00–7:30pm Q&A and discussion
  • 7:30–7:45pm Wrap up

About the presenter:

Dr. Michele A. Williams has 15 years of academic and industrial experience in UX, accessibility, and technology. She is passionate about ensuring people with disabilities are not excluded from technology. Her well-rounded experience includes training, design consultation, field research with people with disabilities, and code remediation for building WCAG-compliant technology.

Dr. Williams holds a B.S. in Computer Science, Masters of Software Engineering with a concentration in Human-Computer Interaction, and PhD in Human-Centered Computing with a focus on accessibility. Along with industry project contributions, her research and designs have resulted in several cited publications, international presentations, and a patent application (see LinkedIn for more details).

The Journey from ER Modeler to Data Scientist + The Basics of Text Analytics
200 SW Market Street

We will be talking about what data science is and isn’t, with particular focus on the skills that a data scientist is expected to bring to bear on a problem. We will discuss the educational and skill expectations of a data scientist and how those relate to the skills we’ve developed as ER Modelers.

Going by job descriptions, data science can easily read like “jack of all trades, and master of them all too”. How do we break that down into something more reasonably achievable?

  • What is data science and what is a data scientist? What do they do?
  • Do ER Modelers make good Data Scientists?
  • Are the skill sets complementary?

And then we’ll look at some of the basics of text analytics, or extracting information from unstructured text. This won’t be nearly enough detail to make anybody a practitioner, but we will see several of the basic techniques at work and develop a functional mental model of some of the techniques. By the time we’re done, you’ll have been exposed to concepts like:

  • Term-Document Matrix (TDM)
  • Tokenizing
  • Stopword removal (Stopping)
  • Stemming
  • And as a bonus – we’ll see some Python code for extracting noun phrases

Bring your questions around these topics and let’s get into them.

Our Speaker

Asoka Diggs is a Data Scientist with Intel Corp. in Hillsboro, OR. He has about 15 years of experience in a variety of data management disciplines, including database administration, ER modeling, ETL development, and data architecture. He has recently transitioned to analysis of data by completing the MS Predictive Analytics degree from Northwestern University. It turns out that there IS something even more fun than ER modeling, and he now spends most of his work time practicing his analytic modeling skills, and teaching others how to participate and contribute to predictive analytic projects.

AgilePDX Westside Cafe: Integrating Dev & QA
2885 SW Cedar Hills Blvd., Beaverton, or, 97005

You're a QA professional and you've been trying for months to get involved at the start of a story, but developers push you away. They see you as the traffic cop waiting to catch them in an error. You're a developer and the QA folks always find something simple right before the end of the sprint. Why didn't they tell you they were going to test that?

Join us at AgilePDX westside to discuss how to involve QA earlier in the process. How do you convince the team that QA is more than testing and ads value from the very start. How do you convince QA to step into a larger role? That they can abandon the formality they were trained in and jump right in.

PDXScala Meeting
AboutUs

Come join us for another gathering of PDXScala, the Portland Scala users group. This is a casual group focused around the Scala programming language. We welcome both newcomers and experts alike.

Thomas Lockney will be presenting SBT (Simple Build Tool) as a convenient tool for exploring Java libraries with Scala. One of the primary benefits of Scala being available on the JVM is easy integration with existing Java code, but as any Java developer can tell you, it can take a lot of boilerplate to get started exploring a new library. Scala (and SBT) make it possible to shortcut through a lot of this excess code and get right to the heart of the matter.

Brian Panulla has generously agreed to be our first subject for a group code review. He'll be showing his program which converts an XML file to RDF/OWL and we'll have the opportunity, as a group, to look for ways to improve it.

We look forward to seeing you!

Mobile Portland: Warm, Clothed, and Fed—Developer run iPhone businesses
AboutUs

Note: We've moved the November meeting from its normal date to accommodate Dan's travel schedule.

As developers, we bring a certain set of skills, biases and preferences to business.  These act as a double edged sword; we make great business people when we play to our strengths; we fail when we try to be something we're not.

There are sweet-spots in the iPhone market that will sustain, on a continual basis small, developer run, 1-3 person iPhone companies.

This is a talk about identifying those market opportunities.   This talk is about capitalizing on them in a way that plays to our strengths and mitigates our weaknesses.  This talk is about the choices we make when we start our own developer run iPhone businesses.  Topics include:

  • Choosing the type of business: are your customers iPhone consumers, companies that need iPhone apps, or other iPhone developers?
  • Data-informed app price and product-category strategy.
  • Marketing from code.
  • Contract wages and the $10,000 problem.

About Dan Grigsby

Dan runs Mobile Orchard, the #1 iPhone development podcast and community site.  As the rare programmer/business type guy, he's as happy running marketing hacks as he is hacking iPhone code.  He's happiest giving talks that incorporate elements of both, so speaking about developer-run iPhone businesses is pretty much the rapture.  Previously, Dan founded/ran startups, including one that was acquired by Microsoft and another that was the only-ever successful competitor to PayPal.

Dan is visiting Portland to teach a two-day Beginning iPhone Development class.
