    Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:
    • Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?
    • Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.
    • Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.
    Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.
    Looking forward to it!

  • Clojure Concurrency Features - Dane Hammer
    One of Clojure's most interesting features is its approach to concurrency. For the seasoned Java programmer, the simple yet powerful state management features of Clojure can be astounding. And who better to exemplify Clojure's concurrency patterns than Rich Hickey himself? We'll be diving into his ant colony simulation and learning about the features of Clojure that it demonstrates.
    About the speaker
    Dane is a Software Architect at Cerner, where he's been hacking and developing for 7 years. Lately he's begun his adventure into functional programming, mostly with Clojure, although he believes his brief foray into Groovy and closures should count for something. He also loves learning about Kanban and other Agile methodologies, as well as building stuff with his hands.
    Can’t we agree on one thing?: Distributed Consensus and the Raft Algorithm - Seth Verrinder
    Getting multiple computers to agree on the value of a variable sounds deceptively simple but the history of the consensus problem, as it’s called, shows that this is actually quite difficult. This talk presents a brief overview of the consensus problem and Raft, the latest algorithm to solve it.
    Raft was designed to be understandable and there are open source implementations available in many different languages.
    About the speaker
    Seth Verrinder has spent the last 10 years writing software for small and medium businesses in industries including scientific training for professional athletes, printing press quality assurance, and point-of-sale.
    New Attendees
    Welcome! This is an easy meetup to get involved with. There are no functional programming experience expectations or prerequisites of any kind, though some talks are more advanced than others. These events are generally well suited to help infuse functional programming ideas into an existing programming skill set.
    Kansas City Women in Technology Pre-Meetup
    Michelle Brush will be hosting a pre-meetup for women starting 30 minutes before the event at C2FO to get to know other women attendees.  If you are interested, please let Michelle know here.
    Location Details 
    The address is 4210 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Suite 400A.
    C2FO offices are on the top floor of the same building in which Fairway, KS City Hall is located. This building is right behind Stroud's restaurant and LLKC attendees should be able to gain entry from any door.
    Additional Notes 
    Cerner is sponsoring pizza, so come hungry!
