Another calendar with tech and business events in KC:



It's been a very busy beginning of the year, and I have not been able to focus on OWASP as I would have liked. However, I want to keep some momentum rolling with the chapter. As such, I'm going to schedule the February meeting as a planning meeting, because I simply don't have the cycles to keep things going as a one-person show.
If you are interested in helping to set the direction of our OWASP chapter and are willing to help out with making things happen, mark your calendar for Tuesday, February 28th, at 6:30pm. Location is still TBD, but will be someplace with food and drink, probably in the general vicinity of the usual meeting place.
If you think you'll be able to make it, please RSVP so I can make sure to plan for a location with sufficient space.

Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 12:00:00 AM Stowers Institute 1000 E 50th St, Kansas City,

Please join us for an evening of looking at the exciting past month of PHP news and learning about using Liquibase and the Symfony CLI to do amazing things with a database.

Light refreshments will be provided. Join us to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new. 

Our Evening Meeting Format

We love Web Development and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we shoot for this schedule:

6:00pm - Mingling / Meet and Greet

6:15pm - Lightning Talk: Last Month in PHP - Eric Poe

6:30pm - Presentation: Using Liquibase & Symfony CLI to manage, migrate, & seed a mature database - David Stanley

When starting with a clean slate, database migrations and seed files (regardless of your chosen platform) are a pretty easy thing to work with. Need a new table? Create a migration. Need some seed data? Make a new class. The dirty little secret that no one talks about is this - as the database becomes more complex through normalization and relationships, generating good seed data becomes much harder. In this talk, I'll discuss how Help Scout uses Liquibase and a Symfony Console application to manage a mature and highly normalized transactional database.

Your topic here? Contact us to speak!

All Developers Welcome!

We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious and just starting out, dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, Laravel, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla; our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.

Interested in giving a presentation to the group, or demoing something you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting to sign up!

Having trouble finding time to write your blog post. Me too. 

I want to have a dedicated time to work on my blog post each week, I figured it would be great to schedule a time to blog and be with other WordPress people. 

Let's get together and write and talk some, but be a support network to get our blog posts written. 

This is not a help session, it is to post blogs. 

This is not an information session, it is to post on your own website.

I plan on two in the morning and two in the evening per Month on Tuesdays or Wednesdays... Depending on my teaching schedule. Hope you to see you there. 

NOTE - The library has free wifi. If you want a secure internet connection, bring your own hotspot - one will not be provided. The library does have secure computers right outside the conference 2 meeting room.
