Will be held at the Kansas City Library, Plaza Branch, on Tuesday, November
10, at 7:00 PM.  I'll be doing a talk on Moose and Moo. I know these object
systems are well-established in the larger Perl community, but I also know
there are a number of us here who are, or have been, stuck in shops that
are, shall we say, behind the times.

Donations are requested to cover the cost ($20) of space rental.



  • We still need a location for this Meetup! If you know of anyone who would be willing to host this Meetup and has a space for around 30 people with WiFi Internet access and a projector/large display, please contact one of the organizers.
    The World of Windows: Michael Whitten will discuss the state of Python on the Microsoft Windows platform.
    Project Night: We will have several programming projects to work on in small groups. The goal is for less experienced and more experienced programmers to work together to create solutions to the programming projects.

  • Garmin International

    1200 E 151st Street, Olathe, KS (map)
  • Abstract
    It can be complicated learning the ins and outs of any technology stack. When this complexity is compounded by needing to understand how to secure our applications, it can be daunting.
    In this talk we will discuss how to rapidly and correctly apply Spring Security to an existing application. Along the way we will spend a lot of time demoing security exploits and see how to mitigate them, answer frequently asked questions, and learn established best practices.
    Whether you are new to Spring Security or a seasoned Spring Security user, this presentation is a must.
