PDX Women In Tech (PDXWIT) Presents A Woman-focused Code Retreat

Coderetreat.org is a self-organized, volunteer-led organization dedicated to enabling software developers to help each other improve their craft and teaming skills. Software developers of all sorts gather with their machines, IDEs and the ready-to-code Conway's Game of Life.

Tech Academy is donating space and providing breakfast and lunch for the event.

Come along for a day of codeplay in a supportive environment and help Coderetreat follow the sun during the global celebration of software development!

Beer of Trust Key-Signing

"Beer of Trust" is a key signing party with beer, and a chance to hang out and talk about PGP, encryption, and other related things!

What's a key-signing party?

A key-signing party is a get-together with PGP users for the purpose of meeting other PGP users and signing each other's keys. This helps to extend the "web of trust" to a great degree. Also, it sometimes serves as a forum to discuss strong cryptography and related issues.

What if I don't have a key yet?

If you don't have a PGP key yet, this is a good chance to get your feet wet. If you bring a computer, you can generate a test key at the event and experiment with sending messages to others there. It can be helpful to have someone present to walk you through the process the first time. It is recommended that you only generate a test key at the event, and later generate your real key in private. See below for links to some helpful resources for securely generating a key.

What do I need for this party?

If you are bringing a key to sign, then make sure you bring:

  • A picture ID or some other way for people to match you to your identity
  • Your key ID, key type, hex fingerprint, and key size. You can print out slips of paper to hand out your key info if you'd like.
  • A pen/pencil or whatever you'd like to write with
  • A computer is not required, and it is not recommended to use your computer to sign keys at the event

At the event, you'll meet others, confirm their key ID in person, and swap key IDs with them. Later when you get home, you can download the full keys and sign them, then upload the signature to the keyserver or email it to them directly.

RSVP here.

We'll be the kids with all the coolest stuff on the table. Hope to see you there.

VanCoffee - A Morning Tech Meetup

Designed for tech executives, but welcome to anyone, this meetup is a birds-of-a-feather discussion group for those who are looking to benefit from the shared experience of Vancouver’s tech community. Why so early? Because when you run a company or manage a team, your free time either happens before employees show up for work or at the end of the day (and the last thing you want to do after a day of meetings is entertain a group discussion).

Feel free to bring your breakfast and a mug; we will bring the coffee, creamer, and sugar.

Women in Startups: Negotiating for yourself

In today’s startups and emerging tech companies, we are asked to do more with less, be available 24/7, and act as “team players” as the company finds its market. Within these fast-paced, often male-dominated, environments — with few policies and often unclear reporting hierarchies — our ability to negotiate what we need to be successful is more important than ever.  

Join Elizabeth Robillard, local Portland startup leader and VP of Partnerships & Operations at Lytics, for practical advice on how to manage your own career and how to negotiate for yourself more effectively.

Whether you are looking for new opportunities such as a promotion, better work/life balance, buy-in on a new project, more support, or credit for your work, this talk will offer concrete strategies on how to reach your goals.

Nailing Your People Ops From the Start
You’ve got your idea - maybe you’ve even built it already. You might have hired on employee #2, or #20. Wherever you are in your startup’s journey, your journey is powered by your people. Great people build amazing products, and amazing products build world-class companies. However, there’s a catch: great people aren’t just going to show up, and they’re certainly not going to stay without the right ecosystem. Come learn about setting up your people operations and human resource functions early on the right way (it’s not all about compliance and salaries!) If you’ve ever hired someone for your company or you will be soon - no matter the size of your startup - this event is for you!

The Write The Docs NA conference returns to Portland in May, and the deadline for proposals is February 10 (midnight PST).

For the third year, we'll give people who want to propose a chance to test things out, either by speaking briefly, or by brainstorming their proposals.

FYI, O'Reilly has an excellent guide to creating conference proposals, "Propose, Prepare, Present". If you navigate to http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920027096.do, you can get the eBook version for free.

We'll start with a brief networking session from 6-6:30.

At 6:30, I'll make a few announcements. Anyone who wants to try out a "preview" of a conference talk (5-10 min), or just present their draft proposal for comments, can speak to the group (or ask questions) after that.

Startup marketing and branding office hours

The folks at Tinfish are offering up office hours. 

You’re building something brilliant, but how do you get it in front of the people who want it? How do you connect with them in a meaningful way? How do you communicate the awesomeness that is your creation, in a way that is evocative to them? 

If you want to succeed, if you want to bring the gloriousness you’re building to the people who want it, you have to connect with them. And in order to connect with them, you have to communicate with them about who you are, what you’re all about, and what you’re building. And you have to do it in a way that is evocative to them, that will resonate with them, inspire them.

During Startup Week, you can get expert advice on branding and communication strategy for your startup. Janet Hager of Tinfish Initiatives is offering free 45-minute one-on-one sessions during Startup Week. We’ll talk about what you’re building and who it’s for, and talk about ideas for how you can communicate, effectively and evocatively, with the people who matter most.

Book your session here: https://calendly.com/tinfish/tinfish-startup-week

The Shape of Revolutions: How Things Change Ellen Friedman | MapR Consultant, Author, and Apache Software Foundation Committer @ellen_friedman

There’s a revolution underway in how people work with data. For one thing, streaming data is no longer seen as a special use case – and that’s a good thing because streaming is a better fit to the way life happens. Stream-first architectures are useful even beyond real-time processing. Another big idea has to do with where data lives: the big data revolution showed us that data structures spanning more than one machine are a good thing. But a new revolution involves data structures that span more than one continent (geo-distribution) and that go from on-premise to cloud.

In this talk, Ellen will tell a few stories that show how innovation with real impact can happen, including the shift in thinking and in engineering culture that underlie successful change. We’ll look at emerging technologies and how best to use them, new designs in architecture, and flexible practices such as a microservices style that have huge implications in IoT and other large-scale analytical workflows.

AR/VR Residency Colloquium
Limited Capacity seats available

Please join us for a colloquium reviewing and discussing results of the recent Augmented/Virtual Reality Residency held at Oregon Story Board. Participating artists will be attending via Skype or in person as schedule permits; the agenda includes both artist presentations as well as group discussion amongst all attendees.

The colloquium will combine a review of residents’ research and experimentation during the residency with discussion centered on topics such as: What does AR/VR allow artists to do that wasn’t possible before? Does the technology contribute positively, negatively, or neutrally to artistic practice? Are the technologies tools, mediums, subject matter or does it not matter? How does AR/VR expand and provoke artistic capabilities?

The objective of the colloquium is to share learning of the residents and organizers with a broader group, and to inject that group's experiences and questions into future iterations of the  residency. Results will be summarized in a short record of proceedings for public release a few weeks after the colloquium.

Attendance is limited to approximately 30 participants. You are not required to attend for the entire day.
