A Panel Discussion on the Latest Economic Situation in China
House of Louie

Lunch presentation with panel discussion by: - (Moderator) Richard Read, The Oregonian - S. Gregory Borossay, Port of Portland, Manager, Marine Marketing - Joel Enderle, Columbia Sportswear, Sr. Dir. of Footwear Manufacturing - Lisa Graff, Intel Corporation, GM, Server Platforms, Digital Enterprise Group - Amy Hsuan, The Oregonian, staff writer currently reporting on green and solar industries in China

In this global economy, the economic meltdown happening in the U.S. is also affecting economies around the world. China, Oregon’s largest export country in 2008, is being negatively affected. We often see bad news coming out of China, such as:

  • "China’s Slowdown Sends out Aftershocks”,
  • "Jobless Migrants Hit 20 Million as China’s Unemployment Rises”
  • "China’s Small Factories Struggle”, etc.

We have assembled a panel of seasoned business people and professionals who have been working and/or traveling in China to give us a closer look at what is really going on over there and share their insights with us. We will also learn about any implications to the Oregon economy due to the current situation in China. Please bring your questions and join us!

The Art of Agile Delivery (training)
through Sentinel Hotel

Learn everything you need to know about agile delivery in this three-day course. We use an innovative course structure that allows you to do real agile software development in cross-functional teams. Using two instructors and splitting the group as appropriate, we ensure that programmers get plenty of technical depth without boring everyone else.

You'll learn:

  • Eliminating bugs
  • Incremental requirements
  • Working with stakeholders
  • Customer tests and acceptance test-driven development
  • Test-driven development
  • Refactoring
  • Code management
  • Continuous integration
  • Exploratory testing
  • Pairing
  • Incremental design and risk-driven architecture
  • Cross-functional collaboration

Programmers, testers, on-site customers, business analysts, project managers, product managers, ScrumMasters, coaches, team leads, and anyone else on an agile team will benefit from this course.


After completing this course, you will be prepared to:

  • Work in a cross-functional team with on-site customers, testers, and programmers
  • Understand and accommodate diverse stakeholder opinions
  • Build and ship complete increments of software in one-week iterations
  • Create nearly bug-free code using test-driven development, refactoring, and exploratory testing
  • Prevent build failures with continuous integration
  • Build technical infrastructure incrementally alongside features


"I don't know how they pulled off the [class project], but going through four iterations brought the concepts home. Also I was a programmer wanting to learn about the project development side. Diana's four-quadrant diagrams (about stakeholders) were enlightening as was Jim's [incremental design] box diagrams and analogy of TDD to double-entry bookkeeping. Thank you!!" --Steve Tamura, Developer

"Extremely educational--lots of new material. Well organized." --Dave Goldman, Senior Developer, Inspiration Software

"They were great. They were funny, understanding, and answered questions well." --Ven Cohen, Programmer/Technical Lead, ISI
