7:00 PM

Ok, well we have not upgraded to the Xbox 1 nor the PS4 so we are going to have to slum it on the XBox 360 but we always seem to have way too much fun no matter what we are playing on (maybe some Mario Kart). As usual there is a prize for the winner and the biggest loser!!! So even if you don't play come on out just to hang out and have fun. We will decide on the game when we all get here. BYOB and bring a snack to pass.

Sprint Accelerator

210 W. 19th Terr., Kansas City, MO (map)

  • Event Space on the Second Floor
  • KC's PHP User Group at the Sprint Accelerator
    Join us on September 3rd to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new!
    Our Meeting Format
    We love Web Development, new development techniques and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we know evenings are precious so we will shoot for:
    6:00pm -Mingling
    6:05pm - Meet and Greet our members and our friends at the Sprint Accelerator.
    6:30pm - Lightning Talks / Presentation
    Dan Holmes - Show and Tell: Easy REST APIs with SlimPHP
    Eric Poe - Using Raspberry Pi as an inexpensive PHP development environment

    Interested in giving a lightning talk or presentation? Sign Up!
    7:45 pm - 8pm Prize giveaway / Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question.

    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious or 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, FuelPHP, 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 new and cool you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and get signed up!

  • Big data with Spring XD - by Spring Batch Lead Michael Minella

    Big data is all the buzz these days.  However, the currently accepted toolset for working with Hadoop is painful to use and built on immature technologies.  Spring XD is a new Spring project that brings common Spring patterns to the big data world by using enterprise proven technologies.  In this talk, Michael Minella will provide an introduction to Spring XD, demonstrate common use cases, and discuss how to extend it for your own uses.
    NOTE: The talk will only be available for attendees that show up in person. The only virtual attendee will be our speaker, Michael Minella.

    Michael Minella is a software engineer, teacher and author with over a decade of enterprise development experience. Michael was a member of the expert group for JSR-352 (java batch processing). He currently works for Pivotal as the project lead for the Spring Batch project as well as an instructor at DePaul University. Michael is the author of Pro Spring Batch from Apress and the popular Refcard JUnit and EasyMock.
    Outside of the daily grind, Michael enjoys spending time with his family as well as woodworking, photography, and InfoSec for hobbies.

    Centriq Training

    8700 State Line Road, Leawood, KS (map)  

    For September, we're meeting the NIGHT AFTER LABOR DAY, so be prepared! In this session, Dee Sadler, manager of the KC UX-Core group and co-founder of KCCoreGroups, will show us some great UX tools for wire framing and prototyping. If you are someone who is interested in User Experience (UX), needs to create wireframes and/or prototypes of web sites and apps, or work with a team of developers and need to convey the “how” to get your point across, this is the meeting for you.
    We’ll explore ways to use InDesign, Illustrator, Muse, and other tools in the CC line-up that will make life easier when you need to communicate with clients and others. We’ll also talk about testing constraints, when to use which tool and how to improve workflow across the team.
