    This months meeting will be held at the Cerner Innovation Campus on June 27, 2013 at 6:30 PM.   Please visit www.agilekc.org for a map.  
    Cerner will be sponsoring a pizza dinner at this event.  To help provide an accurate head count please register at via Eventbrite if you plan to attend.
     
    Meeting Topic:   Managing Multiple Scrum Teams Across the Enterprise
     
    Meeting Learning:  
    As organizations move to an agile model across the enterprise many things have to change.  A couple of examples of such changes might be the PMO and Architecture groups incorporating rolling wave planning and the introduction of the role of a Scrum Master to the HR team.  At this months meeting we'll learn first hand of some of the challenges and rewards that Cerner has encountered in its evolution.
     
    Meeting Description: 
    In the past 4 years, Cerner's development culture has transformed with the adoption of Agile practices. We will go over our experiences of how Scrum Masters and Technical Project Managers organizationally fit in as well as the pros and cons of having multiple scrum teams and how teams determine who will be a scrum master.
    We would like to encourage participants to come prepared with questions, as we would like to guide the presentation to your interests.
     
    About the Speakers: 
    Shahzad Zafar and Rachelle Wright are both Technical Project Managers at Cerner Corporation and are Agile Champions. They facilitate Cerner’s Agile Boot Camp courses and have been leading agile web development teams since 2009

  • Introduction to Functional Programming - Jim Duey
    Jim Duey will be providing the first in a series of talks to introduce functional programming. Jim is an experienced FP mind that can often be found speaking at conferences on various topics like clojure, monads, etc. We are lucky to have him at the event and you won't want to miss this series.
    Why I still use Haskell - Andy Gill
    Andrew (Andy) Gill was born and educated in Scotland, and has spent his professional career in the United States. Andy received his Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow in 1996, then spent three years in industry as a compiler developer, and a year in academia as a principal project scientist. He co-founded Galois in 2000, a technology transfer company that used language technologies to create trustworthiness in critical systems. In 2008 he returned to academia and research, joining the University of Kansas and the Information and Telecommunication Technology Center.
    Andy believes that functional languages like Haskell are a great medium for expressing algorithms and solving problems. Since returning to academia, he has targeted the application areas of telemetry and signal processing, specializing in generating high performance circuits from specifications. His research interests include optimization, language design, debugging, and dependability. The long-term goal of his research is to offer engineers and practitioners the opportunity to write clear and high-level executable specifications that can realistically be compiled into efficient implementations.

    Please RSVP so we can get as close to an accurate headcount as possible. Cerner has been kind enough to sponsor pizza for this event, and a headcount will help ensure no one leaves hungry.

    Next week's meeting is sponsored by Valorem Consulting.

    Frank Kearney from Valorem Consulting will be presenting: New BI Features in Excel 2013
    Overview: Excel has traditionally been seen as the tool for bringing data together via “swivel chair integration” and a lot of v-lookups. With Office 2013, Microsoft is looking to expand on the native features of Excel with new and exciting add-ons to enhance the business intelligence functionality with tools such as Power View, Data Explorer and Geo Flow and features such as Flash Fill and Quick Explore.
    This presentation will demonstrate these new features to give you a better understanding of how Microsoft is taking a very familiar technology and making it new and exciting for the world of business intelligence and data analysis.
    Centriq was not able to accommodate our group this month, so the meeting location will be at the Microsoft office.   Also, please note that this will be another evening meeting beginning at 5:30PM.

    I won't rehash the entire thing, just that there will be 4 rounds and if you live and/or work in the KC area you are eligible to participate.

     

    What:

    RTanque is a game for programmers. Players program the brain of a tank and then send their tank+brain into battle with other tanks. All tanks are otherwise equal.

     

    Schedule:

    Rounds will be run on Sunday nights, starting June 23, 2013. We will do a fresh pull of every bot that has been submitted, run each bot against each other bot, and post the results.

    We'll have 4 weekly rounds, where you can change your code to make your bot better. Average placement will determine the winner!

    We're planning on recording the matches so that you can playback and watch your bot's performance.

    Bot code will not be made public by default.

  • In the year since we last had a beginners' WordPress MeetUp we've doubled in size. It's time to reach back out to the newest among us and help them to learn what it is about WordPress that makes us love it so very much.

    Join us at MMGY Global to walk through the basics (post-setup) and meet some like minded people!

    Beginning Presentation:

    Description: Tip #4 - A Single query to Do Both Updates and Insertions from Microsoft Access Solutions by Arvin Meyer and Douglas J. Steele.

    The beginner topic for June is Tip 4 from the Microsoft Access Solutions book, presented by Silvia Siren. This topic will demonstrate how to use a query to keep table data synchronized. We will talk about different types of joins in a query and the data that results from them. Hopefully this topic will give us a different insight into ways that we can extract data for different purposes!

    A "Lightning Talk" is a VERY short presentation - It could be ~5 minutes long or at a MAX of 15 minutes in length. The subject is on one of your KOOL projects that you have done or are currently involved in now. It could be a website that you show-off to us or a KOOL app or game that's part of a bigger website. In other words - what's the KOOLEST that you have done and present it with a powerpoint OR NO powerpoint. Here is your chance to show off your work without having to prepare a huge formal really long presentation!

    Look for the laptops, pull up a chair, introduce yourself.
  • Back to Snow & Company! We'll be here for the month of June, maybe longer. Their new "Drink Exchange" is a stock market style big screen that adjusts drink prices according to demand. Pretty cool stuff! And don't forget Happy Hour, which lasts until 7:00.
    Bring a laptop, bring a friend or co-worker, and by all means bring whatever you're working on. We all come from different development backgrounds but historically this group plays well together. We help solve challenges (code and otherwise) and often wander into the latest tech news conversations as well.
    See you at Snow!

    *A note for our tech recruiter friends: We get calls all day long from people trying to hire us away. Please respect the fact that we come to geek night to talk shop and geek out. You're welcome to do the same, but if you think you're going to recruit some devs, please look elsewhere.

    Just wanted to give a quick reminder and some direction for the meeting THIS Thursday June 13th.

    The meeting for will be in Conference Room 434. You can park in the parking lot closest to the entrance. When you come in, say you're with AAUGA and you're going to Room 434. You can either take the stairs or elevator to the 4th floor, then when you exit the stairs or elevator, go to your right and it's next to the big central staircase in the middle of the building.

    If need be, you can have them page me and I can come downstairs.

    Thanks and see everyone there!

  • We are set for 6/24/2013 at Snow & Company

    We are still looking for more Sponsors if you know any interested in the Kansas City area.

    Looking for suggestions on format.  We plan to do a more informal Social Mixer every 3rd meetup.  However if there are volunteers from the group to do 3 to 5 minute lightning talks on the subjects we gathered from last time, I would be more than happy to ensure we get a projector to facilitate this (if the venue doesn't have one already).
