In case you missed it, Adobe's announced a lot of new initiatives lately.
The "Create the Web" tour will stop in Kansas City at the Screenland Crossroads on Thursday, October 4, 2012 and will feature Kevin Hoyt and Terry Ryan from Adobe! (they're buying us snacks and drinks too). Admission is FREE.
Find out how Adobe is helping move the web forward and get a sneak peek at new tools, technologies and services for web designers and developers (a lot of the new info is posted here). They're hosting a series of free events around the world to help designers and developers learn about the latest tools and techniques for creating content for the modern web.
Topics covered include HTML, CSS, motion graphics, web development and more. Adobe is helping move the web forward and gives web designers and developers the best tools and services in the world. Find out about PhoneGap Build, Edge Animate and Edge Services, TypeKit, CSS FilterLab and more!
Follow @createtheweb on Twitter for more, or visit http://html.adobe.com/events/ for up-to-the-minute details. You'll see Kansas City listed as the first stop on the tour! We plan to combine several Kansas City designer and developer groups for this special evening.
Kevin Hoyt is a platform evangelist with Adobe Systems, Inc. Passionate about engaging user experiences as he is, you'll most often find him meeting with customers, speaking at conferences, presenting online seminars, or just enjoying the chance to share ideas and brainstorm with other developers. We'll talk about responsive web design, animation, web standards, and more!
Terry Ryan works as a worldwide developer evangelist for Adobe. His job basically entails traveling the world and talking about the developer tools and technologies that Adobe has to offer or supports.
Terry says, "My major goal is to help developers using Adobe technologies to be successful. Hopefully they'll be using Adobe tools to do that, but it's important to keep in mind that sometimes they can't."

    The Beginners Python Workshop is a 2-day free event focused on teaching the basics of programming in the Python language. Everybody is encouraged to attend, regardless of your previous experience with programming. This will be a judgement-free event, so even if you've never written a line of code in your life or if you've been a professional developer for years who just wants to learn something different we'd love to teach you.
    The first night will consist of setting up Python on your laptop and walking through some online exercises. Once you can show that Python is properly installed on your laptop and you can run a few basic commands in terminal you're free to go. The next day we'll start with an Intro to Python presentation, lunch and then some practical hands-on exercises.
    The only requirements to attend are a laptop and a willingness to learn.
    Where?
    We'll be at the UMKC campus at 5110 Rockhill Road, Kansas City, MO. The room we have booked is 302 Flarsheim Hall.
    Friday evening you will probably need to park in the visitor lots and pay the meters, or on the street. Saturday there's no problem parking in the garage at 52nd & Rockhill; park on the lower level, come up the stairs out of the garage to the north, across the street, then across the quad to Flarsheim (ahead of you, to the right). It's the building with the sundial on the front of it and the steel beam sculpture in front.
    Room 302 is just off the atrium to the left.
    Here is a link to the campus map.
    Schedule
    Friday, 6pm - 9pm: set up your development environment, learn how to execute Python code from a file and interactively from a Python prompt, and learn about printing and using Python as a calculator.

    The meeting topic:  Experience Report - Agile Insights from the Trenches

    In theory agile practices sound straight forward and easily understood.  In the real world, agile practices involve lots of effort, reflection and discussion to make them useful.  Even then success can be sketchy.   Like any other skill set, real world experiences (both successes and more importantly failures) trump theory.  This month's Agile KC meeting is formed around such experiences of an agile practioner.

    Ed Wells, of Asynchrony Solutions, will share his thoughts and perspectives on all things agile across more than ten projects and eight companies over the last seven years with Asynchrony. 

    Topics will include:

    ·         how company culture changes

    ·         the effects the adaptation of agile practices over time

    ·        changes of best practices for Asynchrony and how they have evolved over time

    ·         iterations and work flow management of agile teams

     

    Ed encourages you to bring your thoughts and questions to make this meeting interactive.  This is your chance to get a 'man on the street' perspective for things like TDD, pair programming and why you can't steer by velocity.  So  grab your boss, peers and disbelievers and plan on attending this month's meeting. 

    Ed Wells is a key member of the Asynchrony team.  He joined Asynchrony in 2005 and has supported several projects from development to equipping companies to adopt agile practices.  Currently he is helping Hallmark adopt agile development practices.  Prior to joining Asynchrony Ed has 20 years of consulting experience mainly in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas as a developer, technical lead, project lead and project management.  He has supported several large companies including Anhuesher Busch, Express Scripts, Reuters, Sprint and Wells Fargo Advisors.

    We'll save some time for questions and answers at the end so bring your questions and a friend. 

    Hope to see you there!

    Experience powerful possibilities.
    Discover how Visual Studio 2012 allows you to collaborate better and be more agile. See how it helps you turn big ideas into more compelling apps. Experience how it integrates best practices that accelerate development and deployment.


    Presentation topics to include:

    Keynote: Modern Development
    We’ll show you the broad-picture of the modern development concept. We’ll be introducing the possibilities forNative Apps development, Web Development, Continuous Services and finally ALM (Application Lifetime Management) providing ‘Continuous value without barriers´.


    Tools for Teamwork
    We all want to “be more agile,” but this can introduce challenges in the way we collaborate as developers. Context switching is expensive; interruptions are distracting; it can be difficult to know how an individual ties into the broader development team; even code reuse across the team can lead to code maintenance issues in the future.
    Key Experiences
    · Intro to new web access (product backlog, velocity, and forecast)
    · Intro to new “Team Explorer” (in Visual Studio and Eclipse)
    · HTML/JS/CSS Editor and Page Inspector
    · Local workspaces
    · Suspend / resume
    · Code review
    Continuous Application Quality Enablement
    With the rise of modern apps and the modern data center, we require a modern lifecycle approach that supports the need to increase velocity, deliver continuous value and manage change while enabling quality. See a unique and full lifecycle perspective on quality enablement with rich demos infused along the way to illustrate our the software testing/QA story.
    Key Experiences
    · Product Backlog
    · Storyboarding
    · Exploratory testing
    · Client Feedback
    Improving the Development & Operations Interaction
    Diagnosing issues in production is different from diagnosing issues in dev or test environments. You may not have access to the same sets of tools, and issues can be difficult to reproduce. Learn about a few of the ways Visual Studio 2012 is helping to ease this challenge and how to improve the interaction between Development & Operations.
    Key Experiences
    · SCOM Monitoring and AVIcode bug
    · PreEmptive and TFS Analytics
    · IntelliTrace Anywhere
    Building Windows 8 Applications
    Windows 8 is Windows re-imagined! Get an understanding of the platform design tenets, the programming language choices, and the integration points with the operating system and across Windows 8 style apps that make it easier than ever before to build connected, collaborative, touch-friendly applications. We will dive into code, showing the new features that you will need to learn, like snapping, contracts, charms, appbars, and tiles. You will walk away with the fundamentals for building a Windows 8 application. Leverage your existing skills in order to create user interfaces for Windows Store Apps in Windows 8 using Visual Studio 2012.
    Key Experiences:
    · Introduction to the Windows 8 Platform
    · Metro Design Principals
    · Lap Around Windows 8 (Show me the code!)

     Beginner:  How to use the AccessUsersGroup WIKI

     

    We have started a wiki to share information and presentation materials for our Access SIG.  It is named AccessUsersGroup and is stored at wikispaces.com.

     

    A wiki is an interactive Web site (wikipedia is the largest and best known wiki) where members can add content to the Web site, upload files, and work in discussion threads.  "wiki" means "quick" as in "quick access to information".  The hosting web site, wikispaces.com, is a free (for academic purposes) resource that should help the Access SIG track presentations, store and organize presentation material, communicate upcoming events, and support members.

     

    In this hands-on presentation, Lisa will demonstrate how to find and use the AccessUsersGroup wiki. Each person will work on their computer to join the wiki, add content to existing pages, review recent changes, add new pages, upload files, and contribute to discussion groups.

     

    Lisa is a professor at JCCC.  Her field includes database and Web technologies. She has a special love for Microsoft Access, FairTax, and Iowa State Cyclones.

     

     Advanced:  Lessons Learned from Recent Applications:  handling and avoiding compile, #type and #name errors.

     

    Janet Gelsinger is a Teradata DBA at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, working with project teams to expand and maintain Hallmark's Enterprise Data Warehouse.  Janet builds Access databases for small to medium-sized applications.  Active in the Heartland Access User Group for many years, as well as KC DAMA (Kansas City Data Management Association) and Central Region Teradata User Group.

     

     

    Drawing: 

    Microsoft Access 2010 Advanced Video Training.  DVD with eight hours of training on new features in a detailed tutorial, self-paced learning format.

Additionally, learn how to integrate this with URL Routing to enable you to create site! s with better SEO as well as utilizing 'templates' which allows one .aspx page the ability to generate an unlimited number of pages. Sample site: http://cms.chrisbyram.com

    Mini-BIO: Chris Byram has been a programmer since 2000, working on various hobby sites and not for profit organizations. He began working with PHP and has since added C# and .NET to his list of skills. He currently works as the Web Developer for CST Industries.

To do this, you will need to bring a minimum of one computer running Windows Vista or later with the following hardware configuration:
    • x64 compatible processor with Intel-VT or AMD-V technology
    • 4 GB RAM
    • 60 GB of free disk space on a local drive (Drive C:, or some other internal drive)
