All,


With some late cancellations for tomorrow's group gathering, and having many of our own attending a conference out of state this week, we will be canceling this week's meeting. We have yet to determine when a make-up meeting could be scheduled if necessary, but will certainly keep everyone informed.

 

If anyone is interested in speaking at a future meeting, please let me know and we can get everything arranged.

 

Thanks,

Niki

(2x) 30-60min formal presentation

45min Presentation 1: [Bryan Geraghty @archwisp]
Title: sqlmap demo
sqlmap is an open source penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers. It comes with a powerful detection engine, many niche features for the ultimate penetration tester and a broad range of switches lasting from database fingerprinting, over data fetching from the database, to accessing the underlying file system and executing commands on the operating system via out-of-band connections.

45min Presentation 2: [Jayson Street @jaysonstreet]:
Title: Love letters to Frank Abagnale (How do I pwn thee let me count the ways)
In previous talks I have shown how I have used emails to gain entry into places I should not have been. In this talk I give an in depth explanation on how I use emails not just for phishing but to gather intel & make a way in. I will go over the steps to recon your target. To find important information to make sure the email is not just believed but acted on in the way you desire. I will also show you how to create a convincing get out of jail free card. That will aid in avoiding being detained but will also get employees to aid you in your attack.

Sketches enable us to quickly depict and share ideas with each other, but are also considered disposable. Sketches represent an intermittent state leading to something better, more refined. As artifacts, they're fleeting renditions of the concept, a "point-in-time" idea dismissed into the - ideally recyclable - waste baskets of sketching sessions and desktop brainstorming. Whether using formal scenarios with clients, or generating ad-hoc ideas internally, sketching is part of our UX DNA, and reinforces a core value of “show, don’t tell.”
Please join us at our new Meetup time - 6:30 PM on the first Thursday of the month - and new Meetup location - Snow & Co. in scenic downtown KCMO - for a hands-on sketching workshop with France Rupert of Eight Shapes. Bring your favorite Sharpie and Moleskine journal (or use a Bic and some cocktail napkins) as you learn tips and tricks to embed sketching and sketchnoting into your workflow to quickly generate big ideas and facilitate stakeholder understanding.
Eight Shapes normally presents these skills through as a full-day class, so you're in for a big treat!

    * Kevin Shekleton: Modularizing Rails Apps
    So, you've been writing Rails apps and find yourself writing the same common logic across multiple applications. Rather than duplicating the same logic across the apps, you know there must be a better way to share this functionality.

    Rails has a great modular architecture allowing you to take components and integrate them into your application. We'll walk through the various ways in which you can modularize and DRY up your shared functionality to best fit your needs.
    After hours:
    We'll retire to Bulldog (1715 Main St, Kansas City, MO) across the street afterwards.  If you can't make the meeting, come join us for a drink and some Ruby Talk.

    Meeting Topic:   Coaching Agile Teams
     
    Meeting Learning:  
     
    A discussion about agile coaching.  What are the different facets of coaching and what makes some folks more effective than others.
     
    Meeting Description: 
     
    Agile enables organizations to transform to meet the needs of today’s fast-paced, changing marketplace. However, doing Agile “well” is often not easy. Adoption of new values, principles and practices is needed and teams frequently need assistance in this transformation. As teams adopt Agile, these new practices often create pressure on other areas of the company (Product/Program Management, HR, Finance, etc.) to operate differently. Agile coaches can often assist organizations in understanding and weathering these transitions.
    Kay Harper recently attended the course Coaching Agile Teams by Lyssa Adkins and Michael Spayd. In April’s meeting, Kay will lead the group through a brief, example exercise coaches can use to assist teams. She will then share Michael’s recently-developed model of Agile Coaching, share information on learning tracts that can be followed, and discuss various certification processes available.
    (Lyssa Adkins authored the book Coaching Agile Teams: A Companion for Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers in Transition in 2010. Micheal Spayd is currently writing a book in the Mike Cohn series called Coaching in the Agile Enterprise.)
     
    About the Speaker: 
     
    As a manager, mentor and consultant with over 19 years of experience in traditional SDLC and Agile projects, Kay Harper understands the impact that Agile done well can have on organizations. Her passion is to assist individuals and organizations in making this transition. When not working with teams and projects, Kay enjoys music, yoga, tennis (an ongoing challenge), and playing with her pets. Kay can be reached at kharperkc@gmail.com.

    Some basic snacks will be provided, such as soda, chips, and fruit (bananas and apples). If you want anything else, feel free to bring it. There's a refrigerator in the space, so we can keep it cool for you.

    If there's anything you feel that we need to add or include, then let me know.

    If you're interested in presenting on anything, please let me know that, too.

    What is APIs & IPAs?
    In an effort to get to know and support developers in the thriving tech communities all over the country, Singly is heading out on the road to throw API happy hours.
    This is not about marketing, and it's not about sales. APIs & IPAs is focused on community. We want to support your local tech community, and we want to get to know developers everywhere.
    In each city, we're partnering with local companies that strive to build developer communities, as well as non-local developer-centric companies.
    All you have to do is show up ready to talk shop – and we'll foot the bill for drinks.

    #APIsIPAs

    Where is APIs & IPAs?
    This one is in Kansas City. We've also held APIs & IPAs in Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Denver and Boulder, and coming up next are Austin, Chicago, LA, DC, Raleigh and many more.

    "Innovative Women, Innovative Entrepreneurs" Thursday, April 11, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m, at the Central Exchange, Downtown Kansas City

    Entrepreneurism can be an exciting path to success for women working in STEMM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine), following naturally from their skills as visionaries, collaborators and problem-solvers.

    This Central Exchange event, "Innovative Women, Innovative Entrepreneurs", will explore entrepreneurism as a bold choice for STEMM women with two successful Kansas City STEMM entrepreneurs: Maria Flynn, President and CEO, Orbis Biosciences, and Chrys Sullivan, Founder, Useagility, about how they moved on from their corporate careers to channel their considerable expertise into innovative businesses.

    Join us for a panel discussion facilitated by CiCi Rojas, President and CEO, Central Exchange:

    Register Here: https://www.centralexchange.org/Event.aspx?ceId=1316
    When: Thursday, April 11, 11:30 a.m. - Noon: Networking and Lunch Noon - 1:00 p.m.
    Where: Central Exchange, 1020 Central, Kansas City MO
    Program Cost: No charge Central Exchange members; $25 non-members

    Orbis Biosciences is a company that has revolutionized the delivery, efficacy and safety of pharmaceuticals. Flynn holds a M.S. in engineering as well as an M.B.A. Prior to joining Orbis, she was a director at Cerner Corporation. She was recognized this year as one of 2013’s Entrepreneurial Women to Watch by Entrepreneur magazine.

    In 2008 Sullivan founded Usagility, an IT company with the idea that technology should be easy to use. Her business model was built around the notion that user-centered design is critical to business success. Before founding Useagility, Sullivan led client experience at H&R Block, responsible for leading user experience and client experience strategy company-wide.

    This event is sponsored by the Women in STEMM initiative (WiSTEMM) at the Central Exchange, that seeks to shine a spotlight on careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine, and on women in Kansas City who are working in these industries. The series is sponsored by the Central Exchange Education Foundation through a grant from Spencer Reed.
