Portland Perl Mongers: Cisco Log Parsing - Good, Bad and Ugly
Free Geek

Wed. November 12th, 6:53pm at FreeGeek -- 1731 SE 10th Ave.

Speaker: Gabrielle Roth Topic: 600 Simple Strategies for Sanely Summarizing Cisco Syslogs

Syslog is a handy troubleshooting tool, but only if you actually read what's logged. I wrote a Cisco syslog parser & reporter as part of our network fault-management system. We'll go over:

  • network management basics
  • why we needed this specific tool
  • why I created my own tool from scratch (instead of using an off-the-shelf solution)
  • how I did it & what the results were, and
  • what I'm going to do next.

You don't need to be a Cisco engineer or even know much Perl to get something out of this talk.

As always, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab.

Sysadmin and Developer Tools and Tricks Swap
Side Door

This is a meetup that was inspired by the Tool Swap at BarCamp Portland. The idea is to sit down and share your favorite tools and tricks, maybe that is a plugin for git, maybe it is a hot key you couldn't live without in bash, maybe it is a feature of your editor.

This is the first one to gauge interest and if people like it we could start doing it each second Thursday.

This meeting is set at the same venue, during SEPoCoNi (Southeast Portland Coders' Night). We've spoken about themed SEPoCoNi meetups so lets try one.

Portland Perl Mongers – Programming in the Future + Intro to Dist::Zilla
Free Geek

speakers: Eric Wilhelm + Jonathan "Duke" Leto

(Rumored cameo / lightning talk by Florian "rafl" Ragwitz.)

Programming in the Future - a preview of the upcoming OSCON presentation covering the last and next 25 years of programming technology using Perl as our time machine. We'll look at the evolution of tools, syntax, modules, and standard practices, the gooey innards, and some "hot new things" which are still being discovered again.

Introduction to Dist::Zilla for Newbies - eliminates your excuses for not learning more about Dist::Zilla and using it on a regular basis. By the end of this talk, you will know how and why to use dzil as your favorite Perl package developer tool, and you might even need to publish more code on the CPAN just to have an excuse to use it more.

As usual, the meeting will be followed by social hour at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub.

"Reliability and Software Tools Workshop"
The Hampton Inn & Suites

We are pleased to sponsor a workshop on Reliability software and tools intended to assist engineers and others to improve the product in the development process. This event is in the form of a workshop with two sessions. The schedule is a session held both before and after a half-hour break.

5:00 – 6:30 PM – Session #1 – The focus is on describing ReliaSoft software and how each module of their software fits into a project of bringing a proposed product design to market. Examples of use of the various modules. The instructor for both sessions is Dr. Umur Yenal representing HBM Prenscia | | Tucson, AZ.

Dr. Umur Yenal is a Technologist with HBM Prenscia. He is involved in the delivery of training seminars and consulting projects in the field of Reliability and Quality Engineering, as well the development of ReliaSoft software products. He holds a MSc degree from the Technical University of Denmark and a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Arizona. Previously, he worked as a post-doctorate research associate and as a test manager at the University of Arizona. His areas of interest include system reliability, life data analysis, accelerated life testing and reliability block diagrams.

6:30 – 7:00 PM – Break for Meal & Section News | Pizza and soft drinks.

7:00 – 8:30 PM – Session #2 - The focus is on one or more case studies including a printed circuit board product as an example product. Reliability of a proposed design of a printed circuit board is calculated from components, materials and overall design; then the design is improved with substitution of more reliable components until the design goal is met using the software.

Registration is via and the fee is $25.00 per person. See website link.

Galois Tech Talk: Tree-Sitter: A New Parsing System for Programming Tools
Galois Inc, 421 SW 6th Ave. Suite 300, Portland, OR, USA, (3rd floor of the Commonwealth building)

Abstract: Developer tools that support multiple languages generally have very limited regex-based code-analysis capabilities. Tree-sitter is a new parsing system that aims to change this paradigm. We’re in the process of integrating Tree-sitter into both and Atom, which will allow us to analyze code accurately and in real-time, paving the way for better syntax highlighting, code navigation, and refactoring support. We’ll demo some new features that Tree-sitter has enabled in and Atom, discuss its implementation, and share thoughts on ways it could be used in the future.

Bio: Max Brunsfeld is an engineer on GitHub’s Atom team. Prior to joining GitHub, he worked at Pivotal Labs as a full-stack engineer. He enjoys programming, especially in C and C++, jazz guitar, bicycling and hiking. He lives in Portland with his wife and two toddlers.
