    Coffee w/ Co-Founders with special guest speaker Matt Milletto (Founder, Water Ave. Coffee)

    Graybox

    Matt Milletto, co-founder of Water Ave Coffee, will be not only providing coffee for this morning's event, he was also be sharing a couple stories of his entrepreneurial journey...so far.

    This event will be at the brand spanking new Upstart Collective.

    UpStart Collective is roughly 4,000 feet of contemporary office space nestled at the top of a retrofitted industrial tower in inner SE Portland – complete with multiple rooftop patios, colorful conference rooms, a ping pong table, and the occasional visiting office pup.

    Much more than a space, it is also both a new experiment and collaboration years in the making. Through the continued efforts of startup leaders in our city (and a generous contribution from our partner, GRAYBOX), UpStart Collective is now a highly subsidized creative space open to founders, funders, tinkerers, creators, doers, and idealists.

    Come meet other great founders Learn some stuff Hear some great stories Drink some kick-ass coffee

    Hope to see you all there! Josh & Mark

    About Coffee w/ Co-Founders: As a business owner you are faced with many challenges. You're forced to make decisions every day that could make or break your business. Coffee w/ Co-Founders is a way to network with other Entrepreneurs to allow free-flowing information with the intent to collaborate and help each other. So often we're challenged and there's very little we can do to express our challenges with the people we work with or the people we care about. Think of Coffee w/ Co-Founders as your own personal support group for business owners. We're all here to help!

    Graybox

    Please RSVP on our Meetup page to receive the latest updates: https://www.meetup.com/AgilePDX-User-Group-Portland-Metro/events/257561551/

    Feedback is an essential part of learning. Scrum masters, coaches, managers, and each coworker likely face the need to provide feedback within their community. Many enjoy giving positive feedback, though some are uncomfortable receiving it. And, what about feedback that suggests a change? How do we deliver feedback that could be taken personally?

    Join us to learn hands-on about the art of giving, receiving, and seeking interpersonal feedback, so it becomes a constructive tool for building trust and great work relationships. Agile coach Diana Larsen is leading this workshop and sharing her years of experience in giving (and receiving) feedback.

    NOTE: this event has a limited capacity. We are able to offer this event free of charge to our community. Please be considerate and update your RSVP if your plans change!

    Agenda: 6:00 - 6:30 Meet & Greet 6:30 - 8:30 Workshop

    Facilitator Bio: Visionary pragmatist and author, Diana Larsen co-founded and collaborates in leadership of Agile Fluency™ Project. Diana co-wrote the books "Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great"; "Liftoff: Start and Sustain Successful Agile Teams"; "Five Rules for Accelerated Learning"; and the seminal “Agile Fluency Model: A Brief Guide to Success with Agile” article. Through the Agile Fluency Project’s programs for training and mentoring agile coaches and consultants, Diana shares the wisdom she’s gained in over 25 years of working with leaders, teams, and organizations.

    Join a Team for IDEO.org'­s 9-Week Course for Human-Centered Design

    Graybox

    In January, IDEO.org and +Acumen will once again be offering their highly regarded free 9-week online course, Design Kit: Course for Human-Centered Design. As we've done often in the past, Portland Community Design Thinkers will be hosting a special meetup on Jan. 16 to help facilitate the creation of teams for all members who wish to join the course.

    Created by IDEO.org for those who are relatively new to design thinking, +Acumen's free Design Kit: Course for Human-Centered Design is probably one of the best and most immersive resources anywhere for getting up to speed on the nuts and bolts of HCD. This meetup is specifically for those interested in learning more about the course and helping to form working teams. Please note PCDT is not managing this course -- you'll be on your own for that. But we're keen to give anyone interested a leg up in getting off to the best possible start with a group of other eager local participants, and participants are welcome to use our own Slack channel for course communication and organizing, as many groups have previously done.

    Read more about the course at the below link.

    In brief, it's a nine-week online FREE curriculum that will introduce participants to the concepts of human-centered design and how this approach can be used to create innovative, effective, and sustainable solutions. During those nine weeks, you'll work online (and off) with a group of 2-6 people, learning the HCD process by applying it to one of three pre-crafted real world design challenges. (You'll also have a choice to craft your own challenge.) Each week you will explore the fundamental concepts through readings, case studies, and short videos. Then you'll meet in-person with your design team to get your hands dirty practicing the relevant human-centered design methods.

    Let's get as many teams together as we can for the next course! Read more at this link: http://www.plusacumen.org/courses/introduction-human-centered-design

    Graybox

    Join us for food, learning and a great time to network with the fabulous PHP Community!

    Kurtis Holsapple presents Procedural Code to Testable Code

    During this talk we'll look at how we can transform existing PHP code to cover it with a few unit tests. If you've never written a test, or want to see how we can cover a legacy code base with a brand new test suite, we'll be doing it live! We'll start with a basic contact form and build out a brand new testing setup based on PHP Unit and Composer, and when we're done we'll try to build out additional functionality all covered by unit tests.
