    PDXWIT #Action Women’s Strength Self-Defense Class

    Jama Software

    Please RSVP on Eventbrite

    Suggested donation in support of the Women’s Strength program: $5-$10

    PDXWIT #Action is proud to offer a Women’s Strength self-defense class on June 12th at 5:30. The introductory class is presented by WomenStrength, who introduce all those who identify as women to strategies — including survival-level fighting skills — to defend against sexual assault. This workshop is in support of PDXWIT #Action’s top local issue of supporting public safety. Class activities and discussions are designed to help participants identify their risks, evaluate their strengths and explore their options for dealing with the threat of sexual violence. Class activities focus on practicing verbal and physical strategies and discussion topics focus on sexual and domestic violence. Although the WomenStrength program is operated out of the Portland Police Bureau, the instructors are not police officers. They are highly skilled civilians who teach safety and de-escalation to the community at large.

    Note: This training is neither based on nor in support of Portland Police Bureau’s tactics that have been criticized as an excessive use of force.

    This event is wheelchair accessible. Please contact us for any accommodation requests or questions. Beverages will be provided.

    The agenda for the evening is as follows:

    5:30pm: Arrive and get settled

    5:45pm: Workshop begins

    7:00pm: Workshop ends

    Portland Java Users Group: Vert.x: Asynchronous Application Development for the JVM

    Jama Software

    You can think of Vert.x as an Actor-model-based, functional event-driven, messaging passing platform that speaks in modern protocols (JSON, WebSockets, etc) and can be used from many JVM based languages but bridges the communication gap between the browser and the server in a new way. Convincingly Vert.x is like a Node for the JVM, but with some fun enhancements.

    We'll cover:

    • What, Why and Who of the Vert.x project
    • Discuss the problem space it is good for
    • Demonstrate and discuss concepts and features of Vert.x
    • Show a variety of demo apps illustrating how it works
    • Current State of the Project

    PJUG: Apache CloudStack: private cloud with Java

    Jama Software

    Apache CloudStack is an open source private cloud server. In other words, IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). In this talk we’ll take a look at CloudStack system architecture and how to configure and deploy your own private cloud with CloudStack. We’ll also look at some CloudStack Java code and see how it uses Java APIs to control the XenServer hypervisor.

    Speaker: Daniel Kranowski is Lead Software Engineer and Principal at Business Algorithms, LLC (www.bizalgo.com). He has spent over a decade coding in Java, .NET, C++ and related technologies. Amidst his regular schedule of Java enterprise application development, he feeds his addiction to "making big systems go fast" by hacking on CloudStack.

    Portland Java Users Group

    Jama Software

    Topic: Software Estimation Software estimation is always difficult to do well. Estimation is rarely taught in school and gets little attention in professional training. This presentation, built heavily on material from Steve McConnell, delves into the topic with the goal of improving estimation with a few simple rules of thumb as well as improving the understanding of the culture and politics surrounding estimates that often cause conflicts.

    Speaker: Chris Kessel I've been a developer for just shy of 20 years and started with Java shortly before its original 1.0 release. I'm passionate about the craft and maintain an active interest in software history and culture, especially as it impacts best practices.
