PostgreSQL Portland Performance Practice Project (P5)
Portland State University Fourth Avenue Building (FAB)

Sponsored by the Computer Science Department, Portland State University

This series will consist of 5 to 6 presentations aimed at PostgreSQL database users who wish to learn more about tuning their systems for performance. Attendees will learn how to generate and interpret operating system (Linux) and database statistics, and the effects of some system tuning techniques. This involves studying the well known Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) benchmark called TPC-C ( ). TPC-C was developed by a committee, representing all major players in the database marketplace, to be representative of typical online enterprise databases. TPC-C consists of a precisely defined schema and 19 queries. We will review the schema and queries and demonstrate how each tuning technique affects their performance. We will use an open source package that the speaker has developed, called DBT-2, which many DBAs have found useful.

PDXPUG: Introductory Database Education at PSU
Free Geek

by Len Shapiro

Abstract: I'll survey how I teach the introductory database course at PSU. My goal for the talk is to elicit suggestions for how I could do a better job. The theme of the course is "transforming data into Information". I use a 200 Meg database, hosted on PostgreSQL, instead of the one-slide databases used in typical intro courses, to illustrate the principles of the course. The database is Federal Elections Commission data re donations to candidates, so queries often reflect real questions about the real data.

Bio: Len Shapiro has been a professor at PSU for 23 years. His research interests are primarily in query processing.

ACM Tech Talk: Connecting Android to MySQL: An Interactive Tutorial
Portland State University FAB, Room 86-09

In this talk, we will cover the basics of how to connect an Android device to a MySQL database. The technique used is adaptable to any database server (SQL Server, PostGRES, etc...)

As you probably know, Android does not have a built in functionality to access remote databases, instead it uses SQLLite, a flat file system.

However, using Java EE 7 and a simple PHP connectivity script, it is practically trivial to do the basic CRUD operations on a remotely hosted database.

Bring a laptop with Java 7 and Android SDK with Eclipse installed, and get ready to code. Or just bring yourself, and a sheet will be passed to have the connection code EMAILED to you after the venue.

About the speaker: Sean Walsh (aka Azadi) is the current vice chair of the Portland State Chapter of the ACM. Sean is currently finishing his Bachelor's of Computer Science with a Mathematics Minor at Portland State University, and has industry experience with deploying mobile apps for Android.

[ACM Event] Pair Programming and Test-Driven Development Workshop
Portland State University Fourth Avenue Building (FAB) Room FAB 40-07

Come practice Pair Programming and Test-Driven Development with us. Pair Programming is an Agile methodology in which two developers share a single workstation and work together to solve some problem. Test-Driven Development is a development process that relies on the repetition of a short development cycle driven by writing tests before any implementation code. Red, Green, Refactor.

Portland Panel: ISO 26262 – For Automotive and Beyond

Interested in the way ISO 26262 will affect automotive electronic design and compliance? Or how this standard might impact other industries, such as the semiconductor market? Listen what the experts have to say.

Third Annual Portland State Univ. (PSU) Systems Engineering Forum Date: Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016 Time: 5:30pm (registration); 6pm (panel discussion); 7pm (networking) with drinks/snacks hosted by Jama Software Location: Jama Software, 135 SW Taylor St #200, Portland, OR 97204 Parking: Close to MAX line (Yamhill District Stop); several public parking garages RSVP: Forum is free to all technical professionals but limited to 100 participants. Please RSVP via Eventbite.

Description: ISO 26262 addresses the needs for an automotive-specific standard that deals with the functional safety of hardware-software electrical/electronic/programmable safety critical systems. In alignment with good system engineering practices, ISO 26262 uses a system of steps to manage functional safety and regulate product development throughout the lifecycle on today’s hardware and software integrated systems. Specifically, this standard details how to assign an acceptable risk level to a system or component and document the overall testing process.

What impact will this standard have on automotive electronic design, V&V and testing? What new tools might be needed for safety requirements tractability and risk management? How will compliance be handled? Will this standard set a precedence and framework – especially for simulation lifecycle management and V&V flows – for other industries such as the semiconductor market? These are some of the questions that a panel of experts will address from a tool vendor, designer, V&V engineer and end user point of viewpoints. Please join us for a lively discussion followed by a networking session with drinks and snacks.

Panelist: Bill Chown, CIO INCOSE and Product Director, System-Level Engineering, Mentor Graphics Derwyn Harris, Jama Software Co-Founder and Product Manager Mike Bucala, Lead Engineer – Vehicle Systems Quality, Daimler Trucks NA Ryan Slaugh, Project Engineer, Pacific NW Laboratories (PNNL) John Blyler (Moderator), JB Systems
