Palm Pre Development Workshops

Hello all!

Just so you know, the first Pre Development Workshop will be on Saturday the 5th in the month of September! Please mark it on your calendar. The time has been set from 10:00-12:00.

Tickets are now on sale at http://portlandpredevworkshops.eventbrite.com/

Palm Pre Development Workshop

Join us on Saturday the 5th for the Portland Pre Development Workshop. Everyone is welcome to attend, no prior programming experience is needed.

  What is a Pre?
  The Pre refers to the Palm Pre, a new competitor in the Smartphone market.

  Why develop for the Pre?
  The pre offers a simple but comprehensive SDK that is easy to build on but is also powerful. The Pre has a flourishing open source community.

  Why is the Pre so good?
  There are many reasons why the Pre is a good development platform. The big reason is potential. While the SDK only allows web coding with additional API's, the core of the system is Linux, which already has a large community.

  What do I need for a Pre Development Workshop?
  Please bring a laptop with the SDK already installed.

  The SDK can be downloaded from http://developer.palm.com

  I also recommend installing the eclipse platform with the Mojo plug-in. Instructions can be found here: http://developer.palm.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1639

  Why only six tickets?
  The space we are using at Souk has space for six people. If tickets sell out, then we will add more tickets.

Women Who Code Portland - Networking Night @ Second Story - "Make It Happen: Improvising, Collaborating, Prototyping"

On Thursday, May 11th, Second Story will host Women Who Code Portland’s monthly Networking Night in their new design studio.


Second Story is a network of experiential design studios working across the cultural and brand landscapes to elevate the art of storytelling. They build stories you can step inside of.

The theme for the night is Make It Happen: Improvising, Collaborating, Prototyping. The format of the night is an “around the world”; after the welcome, we will break into 3 smaller groups and each smaller group will attend every session offered. The night will be centered around how the team at Second Story works collaboratively, how they create prototypes that help them push the boundaries, and the leadership styles that make it all possible. 

We hope you’ll join us. Second Story is absolutely thrilled to host us in their new studio!

Program

6:00 - 6:30pm – Doors Open + Networking

6:30 - 7:40pm – Welcome + Around the World Sessions

7:40 - 8:00pm – Networking   

Session #1 - Improvising To Become Better Collaborators

Second Story is a highly collaborative studio making work that none of them could possibly produce on their own. Needless to say they have to be excellent listeners and collaborators. So that means they have to practice. Laura Allcorn, Creative Lead and Sr. Experience Designer, will lead a brief improvisation workshop that helps you brush up on our listening and collaboration skills. If the thought of this makes you nervous, please know this isn’t a performance and trying to be funny will be frowned upon.

Session #2 - Getting Real Fast

Prototyping is a necessity at Second Story. Their project teams will share how they prototype and why they do it. You’ll get a behind the scenes look at examples from projects with major museums and brands. Along the way they’ll share key learnings and show you how they evolved the experiences created.

Session #3 - Exposing Unconscious Bias

Kelsey Snook, Creative Director, will facilitate a discussion about women in leadership roles. She will share the Second Story approach to tackling unconscious bias with their Make Some Room campaign, an effort to increase inclusivity in the tech and creative fields.

Portland Data Science Group - Designing Intelligence

Automation is the future of computing and conversational interfaces are the future of human-computer interactions. However, creating these systems requires us to reverse engineer some of the most fundamental aspects of life, which can be difficult and overwhelming — especially if you don’t know where to start. 


 Designing Intelligence will: 
• Help the you understand what’s happening in the artificial intelligence space and where it’s been. 
• Explain why you’ll be making one of these systems sooner than you think. 
• Teach you how to create the products that will thrive in the age of automation. 
• Give you language to help you sell your ideas to your team and bring your dreams to life. This is one talk you’ll regret missing.

Guest Speaker Joe Toscano will be presenting - @realjoet.

Formerly an Experience Designer for R/GA, Joe worked as a consultant for Google, where he and his team oversaw the Google product ecosystem and helped Google take products to market. This meant he and his team had to understand how each product strategically fit within the Google ecosystem now, how each product would evolve, over time, and how the decisions being made by individual teams would affect Google’s larger business goals, as a whole. Understanding this allowed him and his team to be confident that the decisions they were making would strategically move Google’s business forward.

Joe has since left his job at R/GA to pursue writing his book, Designing Intelligence. The book is being written to help people understand the current state of automation, where it's been and where it's going, how to design products that will thrive in the age of automation, and what role we, as technical talent, play in creating an inclusive future through automation. He hopes to help create ethical automation designers who not only understand best practices of making these systems but also understand the impact they'll be making on the world, through automation.

Note the earlier-than-normal start time of 6p.

#FullStackPDX : October : 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.

PDX People of Color in Tech - ReLAUNCH
1000 SW Broadway

Hi folks! We've been out of commission for a while but we're relaunching! I
I'll be sending out the location soon (suggestions welcome), but I'd like to meet so that we can talk about what we want and need from this Meetup. Tab and I started it to build community and we have done that, a little. We could do so much more!
We could be a hub for job/contract opportunities.
We could have working dates.
We could bid on contracts together.
We can and should help one another to grow and be successful in every way possible. I subscribe to "I am because we are. We are because I am." also known as "Ubuntu".
We’ll be meeting at 1000 SW Broadway. There will be food and drinks, but bring anything you want to share. Lock in that time on your calendar. If you have something special you want to be addressed, email me here or [masked]
one love

Dev Nation
Ace Hotel

In early 2009, several developers from Relevance and Viget Labs got together and starting talking about technical conferences. As we discussed our past experiences at regional, national, and international events, we began to realize something: large conferences are wonderful for a lot of things, but we wanted something that met a different set of goals. We came up with Developer Day, which was designed to:

  • Build lasting relationships among local peers
  • Bridge distinct technical communities

After a year of Developer Days, however, we decided a new look was in order, and thus was born DevNation. We've still got the same ideals, but we feel that the DevNation name better reflects that vision (and it's easier to Google!)

Relationships

The general pattern for a large conference runs something like this: you fly to a city, go to the event, have a great time, meet lots of great people, and fly home. More often than not, you don't see those people again until the next big conference, and that's a problem. We wanted our event to be different, so it's intentionally local. Speakers and attendees are overwhelmingly local to the conference, so when you meet someone doing something cool, you can connect with them a week later for lunch without a problem.

Technology-Agnostic

Sure, there are events that draw a wide range of developers (e.g., OSCON), but even then people tend to segregate; the Pythonists go to their sessions, the Rubyists to theirs, and the PHP devs to theirs. By having only one track, we give everyone the opportunity to see what's happening in other communities.

Portland JavaScript Admirers - JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting
Akamai

Serverless is the new most talked about architecture pattern and quickly becoming a buzz word. The idea is for developers to stop worrying about server management and focus on code. The serverless platform takes care of the provisioning servers, underlying infrastructure, server maintenance security and scaling. We will look at three practical use cases of serverless with example code.

Secure and Scalable APIs
Backend microservices
* Event driven programming

Key concepts introduced will include triggers, rules, actions, composition and event driven architecture. Finally, serverless is relatively new and we will look at what the shortcomings are with the current technology and how to mitigate them. We will use Apache OpenWhisk as our serverless platform. Apache OpenWhisk is an open source, distributed Serverless platform that executes functions (fx) in response to events at any scale. The talk will include live demo of building and deploying an application to Apache OpenWhisk.

Speaker: Upkar Lidder is a Full Stack Developer and Data Wrangler with a decade of development experience in a variety of roles. He can be seen speaking at various conferences and participating in tech groups and meetups.

JAMStack Hackathon PDX Edition!
through Alchemy Code Lab

Free Code Camp is hosting a JAMStack Hackathon in San Fransisco, and we can participate together in Portland! It's a two-day event on Saturday & Sunday, November 3 & 4 from 9AM to 9PM.

Come hang out and participate in the online version of the hackathon in person with teams we'll help you build in downtown Portland at Alchemy Code Lab! ACL lead instructor, mJordan, and Free Code Camp Portland Organizers / awesome developers, Brigette, Kenny, and Daniel will be ready to hack and help. Jason from Gatsby will also be popping in to help and provide some swag!

The online hackathon teams will compete for their own set of prizes. They can interact with the judges, mentors, and other hackathon teams through the chat room and the live stream of the event on the freeCodeCamp YouTube channel.

HOW TO SIGN UP (4 Steps to Officially Participate): 1. RSVP to our MeetUp

  1. Check out the official event page: https://hackathon.freecodecamp.org/

  2. Build and deploy a JAMStack app by following the included instructions. If you need help, feel free to reach out to [email protected] or join the Free Code Camp Portland slack group [http://bit.ly/freecodecamppdx] and reach out!

  3. Once your hello world app is live, apply for a free online ticket here: https://freecodecamp.typeform.com/to/v4mc19

*You can still participate without signing up for the online hackathon ticket, but you won’t be eligible for the official prizes.

SHOULD YOU SIGN UP? YES! Any skill level should feel welcome to come hang out and learn! Hackathons are a great way to meet new people and learn new skills. Some experience with HTML/CSS/JavaScript would be helpful, but there are always plenty of ways for people to contribute even if you don’t know any code coming in.

EVENT DETAILS: The main hackathon is from 9am to 9pm on both Saturday and Sunday. The space here will be available for the same hours.

Food carts are just a few blocks away when you need a midday break, and there will be some food provided...stay tuned!

WAIT, WAIT…. WHAT ACTUALLY IS THE JAMStack? The JAMstack is a simple way of building web apps. JAM stands for JavaScript, APIs, and Markup (HTML and CSS).

If you've built some of the projects in the freeCodeCamp curriculum, you've already been using the JAMstack.

The main difference between the JAMstack and other web development stacks like LAMP and MEAN is this: instead of using a web server back end, you use APIs.

Machine Learning and JavaScript
Alchemy Code Lab

JavaScript isn't currently a popular language for machine learning. But is a popular language and it does the ability to easily run an a variety of platforms such as the browser, node, devices, etc.

This week we'll discuss the state of the machine learning eco-system for JavaScript and in particular take a look at TensorFlow.js https://www.tensorflow.org/js/

I'll lead the discussion but this won't be a big presentation. Rather it is an opportunity for you to share your experiences, questions and ideas with everyone else. So take a look at TensorFlow.js and every other JS ML library you can find and tell us what you find, what machine learning projects you'd like to build, what JS ML libraries you like or want to work on/with.

What kind of security features does Angular 2 offer you, and which additional steps can you take to really boost the security of your applications?

In this session, we cover one of the biggest threats in modern web applications: untrusted JavaScript code. You will learn how Angular protects you against XSS, and why you shouldn't bypass this protection. We will also dive into new security mechanisms, such as Content Security Policy. Through a few examples, I will show you how you can use these mechanisms to enhance the security in your client-side context.

International NodeBots Day 2013--PDX
Cloudability

This is not a hackathon. There will be no prizes other than the satisfaction of making something awesome! There will be very little in the way of talks. We're going to get together, collaborate and hack. This is more NodeConf SummerCamp than NodeConf. Sharing. Enjoying each other's company. Learning and exploring. And JavaScript. Lots of JavaScript.

We want to show that node is an all-purpose, fun tool by showing its potential with hardware. How? By bringing together those interested in node and hardware hacking, and giving them an open space to hack, collaborate, learn, and share their results with others.

What Cool Stuff can I do? Checkout the Johnny-Five examples for some examples of cool stuff to do with Node and Arduino.

Front End PDX - Monthly Front End PDX Meetup
Connective DX

Unfortunately, tonight's speaker Micah and his family have come down with the flu, and he will not be able to speak tonight. We'll still hold the meetup, but we'll set up for a Bring Your Own Project night: bring a project to share (or get help with), or come ready to give help to others.
We're working on rescheduling Micah for February. We'll leave the talk description up for now to give you an idea of what's coming.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the final Meetup of 2017, we welcome back Micah Godbolt to talk design systems!

About the talk:
HTML and CSS are all you need to create a Design System that unifies the visual appearance of your products, but as soon as you want to create consistent behavior between applications, you'll need to turn to JavaScript. More often than not, using a modern framework such as React, Vue, or Angular will save you lots of time, and keep you from reinventing the wheel.

In this talk, I will discuss how moving interactivity into the Design System is not only a good choice today, but is most certainly how you will be creating Design Systems in the future. I'll also be discussing the React-powered Design System I've been helping to create which powers a few apps you might have heard of, including SharePoint, OneDrive, and Outlook for the web.

About the speaker:
Micah Godbolt, a Senior Design Developer at Microsoft, is a Front-end Architect, author, speaker, trainer, blogger and developer from the Portland area.

Event Details

​Food, drinks, and conversation beginning at 6:30. The talk begins around 7:00.

Parking is available in the parking lot directly across the street from the Connective DX office on Pettygrove. There are also bike racks available just inside the entrance to the building.

Front End PDX - Monthly Front End PDX Meetup
Connective DX

This month we're excited to have Josh Nelson join us to talk through making in-browser, multiplayer games, using a recent project called PlinkoJS as an example.

PRESENTATION DETAILS

Making a game is simple, right?

How about adding physics to it? What if we ran it in the browser and made it a real-time multiplayer?

I think you can see that very quickly what was once a straightforward challenge has ballooned into a much more significant undertaking. The browser is not a particularly friendly environment for multiplayer games, especially those that need to be responsive and real-time.

This presentation will walk us through core challenges that every developer will face when trying to make an in-browser game and how they can overcome them. Josh will highlight key concepts and solutions using a game he recently built in Node and React as an example, PlinkoJS.

The following topics will be covered:

• Games in the browser - The building blocks for a local, in-browser game
• Network architecture - Connecting players over the internet
• State synchronization - Creating and maintaining an authoritative game state
• Optimizations - Reducing bandwidth and latency estimation

SPEAKER DETAILS

Josh Nelson is a software engineer with a management background from Portland State University. He has experience working with technologies such as React, Node, Rails, Backbone, and more. He enjoys tackling challenging problems and working with others to build robust systems.

• PlinkoJS: www.plinkojs.com
• GitHub: https://github.com/joshcnelson

EVENT DETAILS

​Food, drinks, and conversation beginning at 6:30. The talk begins around 7:00.

Paid parking is available in the lot directly across the street from the Connective DX office on Pettygrove. On-street parking is available in the neighborhood as well, of course, if you can find it. There are also bike racks available just inside the entrance to the building.

Program

Responsive Templates, by Rocky Neurock

One tool in the Responsive Design belt involves making decisions, at the template level, for different devices/media. Ember makes it extremely easy to do this in Handlebars. Rocky will show some simple examples.

Coding More Effectively Through Conventions, by Evan Rowe

Terms like "convention over configuration" and "coding standards" are thrown around often in the development world, but not much time is dedicated to discussing why these things matter, and how they can be useful. We'll take a look at the importance of these principles, and how you can put them to work to improve the quality and efficiency of your (and your team's) code.

Program

Sensible Broccoli
by Mark Avery

Broccoli is an integral and powerful part of ember-cli, but documentation and recent best practices can be hard to come by. By stepping through my rewrite of ember-component-css, we'll uncover the basics of broccoli, writing custom plugins, persistent outputs, and how to integrate these into ember-cli.

Ambitious Design in the Age of Ambitious Web Apps
by Chris Salvi

Far too often we as developers/engineers strive to create ambitious apps with design being an afterthought in the ideation process. My discussion tonight is to argue for a world in which we can strive for ambition in both engineering and design, to move away from blatant aesthetic plagiarism and to return to a sense of creativity within the art of structuring a site.

The Benefits, Challenges and Tricks of Accessing Your Information Without Bogging Down Your App by Kyle Mellander

What do you do when you have a relationship with 1000+ related items? How do you handle complex relationships from the back-end? Let's face it, accessing data on the front-end is very different from the back-end. It requires us to shift our thinking of how we want our data to be structured. We'll look at how Ember natively handles those relationships and what you can do to find solutions for those complex data situations.

PDXNode – Hack Night! 💻
CTRL-H

Welcome to the PDXNode Hack Night!

What is a PDXNode Hack Night?

PDXNode Hack Nights are your opportunity to enjoy a low-pressure JavaScript-centric environment where you shouldn't feel like you're supposed to do anything. First and foremost–just come and enjoy yourself. The night is yours: hang, hack, learn, or do whatever you’re interested in doing. 🙌

Depending on the size and interests of our attending group, we have various paths the night could go, and may or may not attempt some of the following:

Map Ctrl-H into Hackerspace Regions

The hackerspace will be mapped into 'regions', and you can feel free to gravitate towards whichever one suits your interest!

• A place for beginners who want to get going with node for the first time. • A place for people who want to work on their own projects (eg. projects you want to do outside of work, but need to find the time). • A place for people to just hang out and connect. • A place for people to work on projects in groups!

'Unconference'-style Team Hacks

For team-hackers, we'll have a board up and sticky-notes available available at the beginning of the night. Anyone can feel free to write the name and/or description of something they'd like to hack on with other people–and others who're interested can feel free to go to that region and join in!

End of Night Show and Tell

There will be a list available to write your name, or team's name down on to give a quick show and tell of your projects at the end of the night. We're pumped to see what you've been working on!

Some general stuff to remember:

Help is available!

There will be seasoned Nodesters ready and available to help anyone with questions or advice in any of the hack-zones: beginners, solo, and group projects. Feel free to reach out and ask at any time throughout the evening.

Do what you want to do

Above all, we hope for this to be an easy-going event for people to do what they want to do with the time we have. Make the time awesome, it's yours. 😎

Code of Conduct

PDXNode continues to abide by its Code of Conduct, and we ask everyone to commit to keeping to it in order for all of us to have a safe, fun, and amazing time.

Map Ctrl-H into Hackerspace Regions

The hackerspace will be mapped into 'regions', and you can feel free to gravitate towards whichever one suits your interest!

• A place for beginners who want to get going with node for the first time.
• A place for people who want to work on their own projects (eg. projects you want to do outside of work, but need to find the time).
• A place for people to just hang out and connect.
• A place for people to work on projects in groups!

'Unconference'-style Team Hacks

For team-hackers, we'll have a board up and sticky-notes available available at the beginning of the night. Anyone can feel free to write the name and/or description of something they'd like to hack on with other people–and others who're interested can feel free to go to that region and join in!

End of Night Show and Tell

There will be a list available to write your name, or team's name down on to give a quick show and tell of your projects at the end of the night. We're pumped to see what you've been working on!

Some general stuff to remember:

Help is available!

There will be seasoned Nodesters ready and available to help anyone with questions or advice in any of the hack-zones: beginners, solo, and group projects. Feel free to reach out and ask at any time throughout the evening.

Do what you want to do

Above all, we hope for this to be an easy-going event for people to do what they want to do with the time we have. Make the time awesome, it's yours. 😎

Code of Conduct

PDXNode continues to abide by its Code of Conduct, and we ask everyone to commit to keeping to it in order for all of us to have a safe, fun, and amazing time.

Wahoo! See you then! 🎉🎉 💻 🎉🎉

ClojureScript: I Can't Believe It's JavaScript
eBay Community Lounge

There are 6 difficult problems frameworks and libraries try to solve in JavaScript, but never quite get there. Learn how these problems (and more!) are solved by ClojureScript and how it can provide a platform for new solutions.

Are you tired of constantly chasing after the next framework? Do you ever feel like frameworks don't solve the hard problems, like callback hell, state management, and correctness checking? Are you looking for something that could make your software radically simpler and let you code better features? ClojureScript could be the answer. In this talk, you'll learn how ClojureScript solves really some tough problems in JavaScript and how it provides a platform for new solutions.

Portland JavaScript Admirers' Monthly Meeting
Elemental Technologies

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

THIS IS NOT OUR USUAL LOCATION! This month only, the meeting will be at Elemental Technologies.

We have three presentations on the agenda this month:

JavaScript, Hardware and the Internet of Things, presented by Gerald Aden

Internet of Things has become a huge opportunity for software, hardware and designers alike to create solutions for both consumers and businesses. We'll explore how to get started using JavaScript/Node.js, a Raspberry PI and the Cloud to easily get started developing for this exciting space.

RactiveJS, presented by Marty Nelson

Ractive.js is a template-driven UI library. Unlike other tools that generate inert HTML, it transforms your templates into blueprints for apps that are interactive by default. Ractive was originally created at theguardian.com by Rich Harris to produce news applications. These apps are heavily interactive, combine HTML and SVG, and are developed under extreme deadline pressure. It has to work reliably across browsers, and perform well even on mobile devices.

Ractive is a library, not a framework. Where some tools force you to learn a new vocabulary and structure your app in a particular way, Ractive works for you, not the other way around – and it plays well with other libraries. In this talk, we'll go over the main features of Ractive.js, and also show possible integrations that highlight the varied approaches to working with Ractive.

Marty Nelson is a contributor to the Ractive open-source project. A 15 year veteran (survivor?) of enterprise software development he has been a developer, manager and lead architect. The last few years he has been focused on javascript, both in node and the browser, and web and mobile app development with HTML5.

Mystery bonus presentation

We may or may not be able to get to the final presentation. So for now it will remain a mysterious secret!

Feel free to join our mailing list at http://groups.google.com/group/pdxjs if you too are a JavaScript admirer. Or visit our web site for more information at http://pdxjs.com/.

If you're interested in making a presentation at this or at a future meet-up, please e-mail Luc Perkins ([email protected]) and Jesse Hallett ([email protected]).

JavaScript Beginners Workshop
Epicodus

No coding experience is necessary! At minimum, you should be comfortable using computers. At most, you may have done some HTML and/or CSS, but aren't a professional developer.

We'll cover the basics of how the web works, what part languages and frameworks and other buzzwords play, and then we'll dive into some programming fundamentals using JavaScript! By the end, you'll have a good sense of how to continue learning web programming.

We'll use the Epicodus curriculum from www.learnhowtoprogram.com starting with the JavaScript lesson Arithmetic. Feel free to check it out in advance and also to jump into the curriculum wherever you're most comfortable. People at different skills levels are welcome to move through the curriculum at their own pace during the workshop.

What will the workshop cover?

Templating

We'll cover the mustache basics and then dive into the expanded abilities of two-way binding, sections and expressions. Patterns for common use cases like master/detail relationships.

Data, Binding and Observers

Controlling data through template binding and programmatic manipulation. Establishing data flows with observers.

Decorators, Events and Transitions & Animations

Encapsulate DOM manipulation, respond to events and provide intro and outro effects

Components

Apply the fundamentals of Ractive in a modular fashion to build composable, powerful apps

Advanced Configuration and Instantiation, and more

Resources to get started

Installation

Using Ractive can be as simple as adding a script tag in the browser.

However, for this workshop please make sure you have node.js installed as will be exploring ractive in a modern build environment. Here's how to get started: http://docs.ractivejs.org/latest/get-started-with-node-js

Drop in hour for prospective students
Epicodus

Epicodus is a 20 week, full time, in-person class on programming. You'll learn everything you need to know to get a job as a web developer or build your startup's app.

At Epicodus, you'll learn how to build web applications from top to bottom with modern technologies and practices. More importantly than any particular skill, though, you'll learn how to think like a programmer, write good code, and pick up new languages and technologies in this fast-changing industry.

We currently offer three courses: one covering PHP, JavaScript, and Drupal, one covering Ruby, JavaScript, and Rails, and a new class covering Java, JavaScript, and Android. Currently, the Java class is women-only.

Stop in to meet our staff, see the classroom and ask lots of questions. And if you're working on the pre-class homework from learnhowtoprogram.com we can help with that!

2-day workshop: Advanced Redux/Async
through Epicodus

Image Logo - Advanced Redux: A 2-day workshop from Real World React

Note: this is a paid event. You can purchase tickets at https://universe.com/advancedredux

You've learned React, and are excited about building robust, scalable applications. But at some point your application is going to become too complex for React to handle on its own. How do you effectively manage each component and their states? Enter Redux.

Redux has fast become the architecture of choice for building scalable applications with JavaScript and React. It will help you to better organize your application and make state mutations more predictable and transparent.

In this advanced workshop, FreeCodeCamp CTO Berkeley Martinez will help you to take your development skills to the next level.

What you will learn

Saturday - Sunday:

  • Using Redux Middleware
  • Managing Asynchronicity
  • Dispatching Thunks and Promises
  • Using Redux with RxJS Observables
  • Analytics with Redux
  • Server Side Rendering using RxJS Observables

What we will build

We will apply the principles above as we build a social e-commerce app, complete with:

  • Search and Filtering
  • User authentication
  • Likes
  • Follows
  • Shopping Cart

Rock, Paper, Scissors

Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to generate a program that plays a game of rock 0, paper 1, or scissors 2. no random functions allowed! the program should be entirely deterministic. (in other words if your program plays against the same opponent program more than once the sequence of moves should be the same.) your program will receive a list of your opponent's previous moves, your previous moves, and the round number; there will be 1000 rounds per match. The tournament will be round robin format, the program with the greatest number of victories will be declared the rock paper scissors champion.

I want to work for _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (this month is InvisionApp)
Forge Portland

We are super-thrilled to welcome our October special guest, Dana Lawson. Dana is the VP of Platform Engineering at InvisionApp. And the cool part is InvisionApp is a very remote-friendly company (more about this at the meetup session). Dana Lawson on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dglawson Invision on Twitter: https://twitter.com/invisionapp

Dana and I worked together at New Relic for about a year. The first thing anyone notices about Dana is her electrifying energy and her sharp sense of humor. You can tell right away that working with her would be super-fun and you could get lots of things accomplished with little or no stress. Dana’s illustrious career record proves my theory :) Dana had great opportunities to wear many hats throughout her 18 year career in technology.

Earlier this year, Dana wanted to take these lessons learned from being in that crazy world and do it all over again, but better! So when the opportunity came to build out a Platform Engineering organization at InVision she decided to take that chance.

This is just a teaser for all the goodness you can expect at the actual meetup. As always, you have our PERSONAL GUARANTEE that this meetup is the best value for your precious ~2 hours away from friends/family :)

This month, we will host Sam McCurdy, VP of engineering at JetReports. We might actually try something slightly different and have a panel of members from JetReports leadership to answer your questions this time! So definitely join us and bring along your "tech-curious" friends with you. If you are ready to learn what's out there (I know there's a lot of choice out there) in the tech world and want to explore options peripherally, this is the meetup for you... and has been for the last 2+ years. jetReports has a number of unique things going for them and I can't wait to dig into some of those aspects on March 8th.

This class builds on the concepts introduced in Programming with Javascript 1 by exploring advanced data types (arrays and objects) and some of the language’s built-in functions called methods. Students will get a brief introduction to these ideas and then begin applying them hands-on through a series of mini projects.

By the end of this class, students will understand the purpose of and how to use loops, prototype methods, arrays and objects in Javascript. They will also learn where to find more information about these concepts and how to continue their studies on their own.

Galois tech talk: Sunroof and a Blank Canvas: A tail of two DSLs
Galois, Inc

abstract: Sunroof is an embedded Haskell Domain Specific Language (DSL) that compiles to JavaScript. Blank Canvas is an embedded Haskell DSL that provides direct access to the HTML5 JavaScript Canvas. Both DSLs superficially provide the same capabilities, but make different trade-offs in the DSL design space. Sunroof uses monadic reification to enable bindings in the DSL to be translated into bindings in JavaScript, while blank canvas has every binding make a round trip from Haskell, to JavaScript, back to Haskell. In this talk, we will present the specifics of both DSLs, using examples, then use both DSLs to outline the difference choices available when designing and implementing embedded DSLs in Haskell.

bio: Andrew (Andy) Gill was born and educated in Scotland, and has spent his professional career in the United States, working both in industry, and academia. Andy received his Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow in 1996, then spent three years in industry as a compiler developer, and a year in academia as a principal project scientist. He co-founded Galois in 2000, a technology transfer company that used language technologies to create trustworthiness in critical systems. In 2008, he joined the University of Kansas, and in 2014 he was a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award.

Andy believes that functional languages like Haskell are a great medium for expressing algorithms and solving problems. Since returning to academia, he has targeted the application areas of telemetry and signal processing, specializing in generating high performance circuits from specifications. His research interests include optimization, language design, debugging, and dependability. The long-term goal of his research is to offer engineers and practitioners the opportunity to write clear and high-level executable specifications that can realistically be compiled into efficient implementations.

Tech Academy Portland Meetup - Technology Basics Book Launch & 'How to Break Into the Tech Industry'!
George R. White Library and Learning Center, Concordia University

BOOK LAUNCH
With technology becoming integral to almost every industry, a basic understanding of how computers and technology work is necessary for success.

We believe technology is for everyone, and we are removing the barriers to entry that have stopped people from really being able to understand and use technology.

The Tech Academy Co-Founders are releasing four books. One is a dictionary, and three are practical books that teach you how to program computers.

These books include: 
• Technology Basics Dictionary 
• Learn Coding Basics in Hours with Python
• Learn Coding Basics in Hours with Small Basic 
• Learn Coding Basics in Hours with Javascript

The Technology Basics Dictionary is for everyone - from the absolute beginner to the experienced pro.


‘Learn Coding Basics in Hours’ is a series of books written for the absolute beginner who is interested in learning how to code (coding means programming computers to perform tasks).

TECH TALK
In addition to celebrating the launch of the Technology Basics book series, Tech Academy co-founder Erik Gross will be giving a Tech Talk on 'How to Break Into the Tech Industry'.


DETAILS
• Date: Friday, November 17

PHPDX - Up to my Eyeballs in Technical Debt!
Graybox

**PLEASE NOTE THE DAY HAS CHANGED. We will be meeting on a monday this month. There will still be pizza, learning and networking with the fabulous PHP Community!**

Every decision we make in our projects has the potential to increase or reduce technical debt. While the only way to completely eliminate the debt is to never write any code, there are steps that we as engineers, project managers, and project stakeholders can take to mitigate our risk.

This talk covers the concept of technical debt, its potential to devastate projects, and red flags that project teams can look for to reduce its impact before it spirals out of control.

Graybox

Pizza, learning and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

Join us as Kurtis Holsapple shares about Static Sites.

Let's build out a site with no serverside processing at all. Static sites are nothing more than static files put up on a server that doesn't need any serverside runtimes. That means that you can host your site on places like Github Pages, AWS S3, or any other cheap hosting options. We can still leverage our PHP knowledge to build cools sites that have good structure and lots of content. You can still create things like blogs, collections of data, product listings, and more.

Portland ReactJS meetup
Idealist.org

Greetings fellow Reagents!

We are looking forward to our first official ReactJS user group. Dave and Eric from Idealist.org will be sharing some interesting stuff (details below) with us, and we're hoping to have one additional talk. Please let us know if you're interested in speaking/presenting. We'd like to have at least a few lightning talks as well. I have a feeling this will fill up fast, so please RSVP if you would like to attend this event.

If you are new to our group, Welcome! If you would like to get more involved or hear what we're talking about, we'd like to invite you to join our google group to join the conversations or start a new one. Also, please take a look at our code of conduct which let's you know what we think "being excellent to each other" should look and feel like.

Talks:

Notes on the Design of Components (Dave McCabe)

Dave will discuss what idealist.org has learned about designing React components, specifically techniques for promoting simplicity, reuse, statelessness, and separation of concerns, and for dealing with asynchrony.

Isomorphic Webpack Hot Module Replacement Boilerplate (Eric O'Connell)

  • Do you want to serve fully-rendered HTML from your React application?
  • Do you want near-instant feedback in your browser as soon as you edit your React components?
  • How about CSS?

This talk will give the starting point for a very nice dev environment using the webpack Hot Module Replacement feature. It will include a (trivial) Express app that renders the entire React component hierarchy which will then be hydrated on the client. Variations shown will include serving API requests out of the same app, and shared client/server routing.

TBD / Lightning talks

Get in touch with us if you'd like to share your experiences!

PDX PHP - Using Generators to Beat Memory Bloat
ImpactFlow

There will be food, give-a-ways (elePHPants) and a great time getting to know your fabulous PHP Community!

6:30 - We'll start off with Pizza and networking at 6:30

6:45 - 7:45 - Move into the presentation on Generators, by Korvin Szanto

Memory usage is something that we as developers have to be aware of. Ever debugging a memory issue and find that your once small dataset has ballooned out of proportion? And instead of dealing with the issue, you opt for upping the memory limit? Iterators can be the answer but they require a lot of code and can be very difficult to understand at a glance. Thankfully since PHP 5.5 Generators help us create and manage what would be complex iterators with simple syntax sugar. In this talk I will go over some of the ways you can implement generators and cure your memory bloat.


7:45 - Prizes

7:45 - 8:30 - Hack and Help. Have a chance to try out Generators for yourself, or bring your own project and get some help from the community.

Scope is a major factor in any application, from programing scope to project scope, and communication is key. We will discuss different application scopes including global, functional, class, and package scope. From there we will show how everything ties together with communication of the project itself. Why and how to stay on top of project scope and how that can make or break the final outcome.

This month we will have a special guest speaker from Las Vegas: 

Adam Englander is an Engineer, Speaker, and Author with 30 years of experience in building business applications. He has been an outspoken evangelist of PHP during what he calls “The PHP Renaissance”. Adam is a strong believer in the power of strong developer communities. He is a actively involved in the Las Vegas technical community and the Founder of PHP Vegas. Always looking to push the boundaries of what is possible with PHP, Adam has been working to expose the PHP community at large to IoT and asynchronous programming. He also advocates building better applications today by building well tested applications that are cryptography secure.

The Red Team is Coming!

The Red Team, hackers, criminal organizations, and nation states, are a constant threat. The systems we build are the targets. We need to understand the human collateral that hangs in the balance. We embrace methodologies to write better code and make our lives better. They do nothing for the rest of humanity that is directly affected by security vulnerabilities we introduce. In this presentation, I will put a human face on the users of our software. I will challenge you to think in terms of flesh and blood rather than ones and zeros. We are all the Blue Team. We protect the rest of humanity. Join me in the fight. The Red Team is coming!

PDX PHP - Using the Null Object Pattern
ImpactFlow

Food, give-a-ways, speakers and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

Using the Null Object Pattern

When you develop OO PHP applications, you'll eventually get the error message "PHP Notice: Trying to get property of non-object". You can add a conditional to check if an object is null. There is however a better way. Null Object Pattern is a design pattern that helps you to simplify your application logic. The Null Object patthern removes the need to check for an object vs null by using Polymorphism. I'll demonstrate how it works with generic PHP code, and how you can apply it to work with database results.


Presented by Andrew Woods


Andrew Woods is a seasoned Web Developer, and a command line aficionado. He's been making websites since 1999. He organizes the Seattle PHP User Group (@seaphp) and Pacific Northwest PHP conference (@pnwphp). He's an advocate for the open web, and values accessibility and design. He has a knack for making difficult topics easy to understand. In his free time, Andrew enjoys coffee, movies, exploring the city, and playing guitar. He is currently learning to speak Spanish.

PDX PHP - PHP TestFest!
ImpactFlow

There will be food and participation, so bring a computer!

PHP TestFest seeks to create more PHP core contributors by introducing PHP programmers to the PHP language test suite, teaching them how to write phpttests. From September through December, 2017, groups worldwide will meet physically or virtually to learn how to write and contribute phpt tests. You don’t have to be a C genius—in fact, you don’t need to know C at all to contribute.1 If you can write a few lines of PHP, you can write a phpt test.

PHP TestFest wouldn’t be complete without prizes. We’re still working out the details, so we’ll announce prizes and how to win them soon.

This kick-off meeting will be a mini-hackathon which will include information on setting up your environment and how to write and contribute phpt tests. We'll be able to continue working on our test together in the slack channel and at other meetups, so you'll want to get started with us now!!!

PADNUG - Kirk Davis and Paul Fryer: Building .NET Serverless Applications with AWS!
Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 (HF3) Campus

A serverless approach to computing is one where services required to run a system are managed and automated. Developers don’t need to worry about running server instances and you pay only for the time code is actually executing, instead of servers hosted by the hour. Learn how to build .NET based serverless applications with Amazon Web Services (AWS). We’ll build an ASP.NET Core API and deploy it to AWS’s function as a service, Lambda and API Gateway. Then we'll deploy a single page application (SPA) with AngularJS using AWS’s storage service, S3 and content delivery network, CloudFront. This entire serverless application will be built, deployed and ready to serve at scale during the demo.

Write the Docs Portland December Meetup: Minimum Viable Documentation for RESTful APIs
Jama Software

Our December meetup features a presentation by Mike Jang (Senior Staff Technical Writer at ForgeRock), as well as several very important announcements for the community. You don't want to miss this!

Here's a teaser for Mike's presentation, "Minimum Viable Documentation for RESTful APIs":

To paraphrase a James Bond movie, "Swagger is not enough..."

...You've done the work to set up OpenAPI specification REST calls for your APIs (Inaccurately known as "Swagger"). You have reference information. But you discover that few users are actually trying REST calls on your system. You're wondering: "What else do I need?"

This presentation will describe the Minimal Viable Documentation (MVD) for RESTful APIs, also known as "What do I need for my developer portal?"

Based loosely on Kristof Van Tomme's presentations on Developer Experience, Mike will describe the MVD for a developer portal, what will help your developers try out your APIs.

This will be a lightning talk meeting! I encourage everyone to give a short presentation - five minutes or less - especially if you have not presented at pdxjs before. The talk can be on anything you want.

Pick a topic and make some slides, if you want to use slides. A five minute talk works well with ten or fewer slides, which gives you 30 seconds per slide. Add your name and a link to your slides (if any) to the signup sheet.

In addition, Kyle Drake will be presenting on Coinpunk, the future of browser cryptography, why he thinks server-side encryption and password hashing is going away, and how to use HTML5/JS/Node to develop secure applications for Bitcoin, a technology Rickard Falkvinge called "the Napster of banking".

Portland JavaScript Admirers' Lightning Talks
Janrain Headquarters

The monthly meeting of Portland's first JavaScript and ECMAscript users' group. We host presentations and discussions on everything JavaScript-related - including JavaScript frameworks, node.js, CoffeeScript, and whatever else comes up.

This is the meeting where we will have LIGHTNING TALKS!

I encourage everyone to give a talk—especially anyone who has not given a talk at a user group meeting before. This is a great opportunity to practice speaking with a bite-size time slot. I (Jesse) have found that giving presentations is a good way to get name/face recognition, which has opened a lot of doors for me. And this will be a context where there will be other people speaking who have also not given a talk before.

Talks will be 5 minute presentations, with or without slides or other visual aids of your choosing. Choose any topic that interests you—so long as it is safe-for-work.

If you would like to give a talk, send an email to Jesse Hallett ([email protected]) to be added to the list. If you are going to use slides please send a copy to the same address so that we can have everybody's presentations ready to go on one computer. Sign up first and send the slides later if you need time to make the slides. Slots will be first-come, first-served. We have time for 12–14 presentations.

I wanted to include some tips for anyone who has not given a lightning talk before:

  • Practice! Do your talk out loud a few times in front a friend, mirror, an empty room, or whatever. Time yourself while practicing. You will feel silly doing this. But it is the only way to make sure that you are prepared to get the most use out of your five minutes. That is a very short time slot. Practicing will help you to focus on important points, and will help you to avoid points that you might otherwise stumble over.

  • Speak slowly, and take pauses while you are speaking. When I am in front of a room full of people, I have a tendency to worry that I am wasting a lot of people's time, which makes me want to rush and to talk too fast. I think that this is a common reaction. You can give a better talk by resisting the temptation to hurry. Pausing between points, or when you need a moment to collect your thoughts, will give your audience opportunity to digest your points. Remember that a pause that feels long and awkward to you probably does not feel that way to your audience.

  • If you use slides, my suggestion is to use at most 10 slides. That is one slide for every 30 seconds of speaking time. Your slide count is one way to estimate whether you are trying to fit in too much material for the given time.

  • It is preferable to cover one point well than to go over five points hastily. Think about what the core point of your talk is, and how much you can take out while still conveying that point.

  • Have some water handy—public speaking tends to lead to cottonmouth.

Web Audio PDX - Web Audio PDX #4 – The Amazing AudioWorklet!
Mozilla

🔊 Welcome to WebAudioPDX 🔊

We're here to build a conversation and collaborate with people in Portland (and abroad) who're interested in Web Audio! 


Our first few meetups have been organizational & focused on gathering a core group of awesome individuals who're excited to build meaningful projects together. In October we’re continuing to trend towards learning together, getting active, and are connecting with the folks who implement Web Audio itself!

This month we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Hongchan Choi, who'll be sharing the magic of the AudioWorklet with us!

Hongchan is implementing Web Audio for Google Chrome around the clock, and actively develops the Web Audio API specification itself as a member of the W3C Audio Working Group.


In addition, he’s been building incredible projects like Omnitone (Spatial Audio Rendering on the Web), powerful prototyping tools, and is paving the way for Web Audio to be how we interact with and enjoy sound across the Web.

Here's what he'll be sharing with us this month:

🔊⚡️🔊⚡️🔊


AudioWorklet - "What, Why and How-to"

Summary: "What is AudioWorklet and why do we need it?" To answer this question, the context and background of AudioWorklet project will be discussed. In the later part, the advantage of AudioWorkletNode over ScriptProcessorNode will be presented with the hands-on demo. Also the talk is followed by several topics around AudioWorklet such as thread priority, garbage collection and WASM.

🔊⚡️🔊⚡️🔊


Have a project to share?
Bring your current projects to share and get everyone stoked about them! If you have a demo you'd like to share–we'd love to see it! We hope to help each other out with encouragement, code, and helpful feedback.

Are you a musician?
If you're a musician and not a programmer, and are interested in the internet of music and/or music tech, please come join us! We'd really love to talk with you and share perspectives!

🎉 See you there! 🎉

Missed the last couple meetups? No prob. These docs will get you up to speed! :D

Women Who Code Portland - Open Source Study Night: Hacktoberfest!
Mozilla

Hacktoberfest! Let's celebrate open source over food, drinks, learning, and great company. Commit your first PR to an open source project, or submit new PRs to win prizes.

What's Hacktoberfest?

Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with GitHub and Twilio — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like, and ones they've just discovered. No contribution is too small—bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Connect with other Hacktoberfest participants by using the hashtag, #hacktoberfest. Sign up to participate today: https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/

Rules and Prizes

First sign up on the Hacktoberfest site. If you open up five pull requests between October 1 and October 31, you'll win a free, limited edition Hacktoberfest T-shirt. (Pull requests do not have to be merged and accepted; as long as they've been opened between the very start of October 1 and the very end of October 31, they count towards a free T-shirt.)

We'll also be raffling off prizes to participants at this event - come ready to win swag!

Come prepared with:
Laptop/Computer
IDE of your choice - we like Visual Studio Code

Write The Docs PDX - Learn About The Wacom User Help System
New Relic

Wacom -- a company which develops Pen Input hardware -- needed a user help system to move beyond static PDFs. Their solution was to separate product-specific PDFs into a series of, mostly common, HTML topic pages. These HTML file were, in turn, processed into a web deliverable package via Python scripting.

The solution is complex, as the Wacom system includes interrelationships between 150+ topics across over 30 products and 14 languages.

The solution required “a more technical Tech Writer” -- as it required knowledge of HTML
Python
JavaScript
Excel Macros

Wacom implemented their solution by integrating their tech writer in their Engineering team. They also included a dedicated engineering resource to support design and development of their technical docs.

Write The Docs PDX - Internet Archive: Universal Access. Open APIs (Speaker: VM Brasseur)
New Relic

With tens of millions of items in its collections, Internet Archive is one of the largest libraries in the world. It provides free and open access to all of its materials to anyone with an internet connection, making it a treasure trove for researchers, historians, and curious individuals.

Of course, having a collection that large doesn’t help anyone if it’s difficult to access. To help with this, Internet Archive has released a number of open APIs and tools to allow people to upload and download items, as well as data mine the metadata for the entire collection.

In this session we will:

Give you a tour of Internet Archive and its collections
Introduce you to the APIs and tools you can use to access and contribute to the Archive
* Show examples of how other people and institutions are using the Archive

Speaker Bio:

Write The Docs PDX - History of the New Relic Documentation Site, Part One
New Relic

It’s understood that great documentation is essential to use software properly, but in a world with ever-changing specifications and hot new features, how can documentation remain fresh and easily accessible? We’ll discuss how New Relic has approached this, from the process of making sure the latest correct information is available, to updating the interface to make it easy for users to find exactly what they’re looking for, to analyzing our users’ habits and feedback to provide necessary tools and updates in the future.

We’ll take a stroll down memory lane to visit some of the early layouts of the documentation site,  and we’ll discuss the present iteration of the site and the UI changes that were made and why. We’ll also look into the future and provide a glimpse into what we can expect from the site in the months to come.

Write The Docs PDX - Action! Not Just Words
New Relic

Abstract


Many technical writers and documentarians benefit immensely after attending relevant conferences. These events offer networking opportunities, access to Subject Matter Experts, and impetus to pursue novel solutions to work conundrums.


The annual Write the Docs conferences offer glimpses of what is possible in my work environment. After Write the Docs NA 2017 event, I initiated several new projects/processes to elevate the state of internal communication, raise awareness for customer-facing documents, and organize tech communication community at work. The initial results have been encouraging.


We’ll explore how ideas from past and present Write the Docs events have acted as catalysts to overcome challenges and obstacles. We’ll also discuss why the conference is relevant for tech writers, regardless of their industry affiliations.

Bio

Mo Nishiyama is a Technical Writer at Oregon Health & Science University’s Information Technology Group.

Portland OWASP - OWASP Top Ten For Javascript Developers with Lewis Ardern
New Relic

OWASP Top 10 for JavaScript Developers

The OWASP Top 10 is a powerful awareness document for web application security. It represents a broad consensus about the most critical security risks to web applications.

With the release of the OWASP TOP 10 2017 we saw new issues rise as contenders of most common issues in the web landscape. Much of the OWASP documentation displays issues, and remediation advice/code relating to Java, C++, and C#; however not much relating to JavaScript. JavaScript has drastically changed over the last few years with the release of Angular, React, and Vue, alongside the popular use of NodeJS and its libraries/frameworks. This talk will introduce you to the OWASP Top 10 explaining JavaScript client and server-side vulnerabilities.

Lewis Ardern is a Senior Security Consultant at Synopsys. His primary areas of expertise are in web security and security engineering. Lewis enjoys creating and delivering security training to various types of organizations and institutes in topics such as web and JavaScript security. He is also the founder of the Leeds Ethical Hacking Society and has helped develop projects such as bXSS (https://github.com/LewisArdern/bXSS) and SecGen (https://github.com/cliffe/secgen).

Portland OWASP - The Easy (and Secure!) Way to Build JavaScript Web Apps with OAuth 2 & OIDC with Jake Feasel
New Relic

What are the best current practices for building modern, completely standards-based (OIDC) web applications? Which flow should you use? How should you renew expired access tokens? How do you work with multiple resource servers? How do you achieve single-sign on? How can you make logging into your app as seamless as possible? We will demonstrate how simple it is to do all of this using open source libraries maintained by ForgeRock. Together we will deep dive into what these libraries are doing for you behind the scenes: PKCE, service workers, IndexedDB storage, hidden iframes, and more. In the end you will have all the tools at your disposal to easily build your next modern web app with OIDC.

Jake Feasel Developer Experience Lead; Forgerock

Jake has been working in the web platform for 20 years, all the while primarily interested in the use of standards and open source technologies. Jake is currently a senior engineer at ForgeRock, where he has been for the last seven years. He is most recently responsible for improving the ways in which developers interact with the ForgeRock Identity Platform.

Magic Night - Javascript Code Challenge
Notch8 Workspace

Magic Night is a hands on, team oriented, Javascript coding lab, welcoming of all experience levels and backgrounds. We get together because coding is fun; fun to solve hard problems, and fun to work together. We organize into small teams to code up creative solutions to a common challenge, then after 3 hours of building, present to the group.

This month, we're going to look at the popular game called Sokoban. We'll implement an engine to generate the board, and allow users to play.

The computer game Sokoban, invented by Hiroyuki Imabayashi, was introduced by Thinking Rabbit of Takarazuka, Japan in 1982. This simple game of logic puzzles was an instant success. It won awards and spawned sequels. Over the years, Sokoban has been ported to a huge number of platforms. Fan support remains strong and many of those fans even produce new levels for the game.

Today's magic night challenge is to build an animal quiz program.

It works like this. The program starts by telling the user to think of an animal. It then begins asking a series of yes/no questions about that animal: does it swim, does it have hair, etc. Eventually, it will narrow down the possibilities to a single animal and guess that (Is it a mouse?).
