  • A Sip of Elixir - Will Gorman
    As systems continue to become more distributed and concurrent, Erlang can provide attractive solutions for reducing the complexity that often arises in these systems.  Erlang's syntax, however, may not be as attractive.  Elixir is a language that runs on the Erlang VM and provides a Ruby inspired syntax while still maintaining Erlang's strengths in dealing with concurrency.  In this talk we'll take a brief look at some of the features of Elixir.
    About the Speaker
    When not acting as a human jungle gym for his two kids, Will Gorman enjoys making artisanal handcrafted 0's and 1's.
    Big Data Processing on a Small Scale Using Scala - Sean Griffin
    Sean will discuss his academic experiment to use functional programming techniques and features in Scala, particularly lazy evaluation and parallel collections, to replicate a local solution commonly solved using map/reduce.  The theory is: Hadoop overhead might be overkill.  He'll discuss the project, his attempted solution, and its results, whether it be success or epic fail.
    About the Speaker
    Sean has been doing software development for over 13 years at Cerner Corporation, working primarily on server-side reporting, SOA, and most recently, large scale ETL within the Hadoop ecosystem.  In 2009, Sean started hearing about Scala and quickly got on a path to spread it through his teams and the rest of the company through adoption, tool development, and education.  He has presented on Scala both at the Kansas City Developer Conference and Cerner's internal Developer Conference.  He has also contributed code to the scalatest-maven-plugin and has worked with Artima president and Escalate Software co-founder Bill Venners to determine future Scala Test features.
    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.
    Event Location
    Johnson County Community College has been kind enough to host this event, so a big thank you to the staff!  Enter from the College Blvd/Oakmont entrance and park in the Student Center lots (indicated by the student walking icon) or near the Carlsen Center (CC), to access GEB from the north entrance. 
    Wifi at the Event
    1.  From a wireless device, go to SETTINGS and select JCCC-WIFI.
    2.  Open a browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) and enter: www.jccc.edu
    3.  Once connected, click on SELF-SERVICE (bar under GUEST WIRELESS).
    Complete the name fields to generate a guest wireless userID/password to use while on campus.
    Additional Notes
    O'Reilly has provided us with a book from their functional programming collection to give out as a prize at this event.  If you have any clever ideas on a game we can play to pick a winner, please send me an email.
    I will update this post with food details when I know them.

  • KC's PHP User Group now has a Weekday Evening edition!
    We are excited to announce the kick off to the new evening sessions of the PHP User Group!  Our new sponsor TekSystems will be hosting and bringing the Pizza.  Come join us for food, friends and plenty of sharing at this inaugural event!
    Lightening Talks
    To kick off our new evening series, this his month's theme will be around "I Love PHP and..." where we will showcase several different styles and development philosophies in the PHP ecosystem.  PHP continues to offer so much more than blogging platforms and sloppy code. Come join the discussion and see why PHP continues to power 80% of the web.
    Our Standard Meeting Format
    We love Web Development, PHP, new development techniques and everything in between. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but for the evening sessions we will try:
    6:00-6:30 pm Pizza and Socializing
    6:30 pm Meet and Greet new members!
    • Review the "Last Month in PHP"
    • Prepared talks, demos, etc
    • Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question

    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand PHP Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than only PHP. Whether you're curious or just starting out, dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, FuelPHP, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.
    Interested in giving a more formal presentation to the group, or demoing something new and cool you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and tell us your ideas!

    Our presenter for this meeting on Wed 25th at 06:30 will be Neill Horton. This is a must see presentation for all serious .net developers. Please RSVP so we can get a food count.
     
    BIO:
     
    Neill has been in the IT industry for over 13 years. He is experienced in developing .NET and Java applications and transfers his knowledge to students in Centriq’s Application Developer Career Track. His passion for technology and learning are visible in his always-energetic classroom environments. He currently specializes in teaching C#, ADO.NET, ASP.NET, MVC, WCF, javascript/jQuery, SQL, HTML/CSS, AJAX, LINQ, and Entity Framework.
     
    MVC - from MSDN:
     
    The Model-View-Controller (MVC) architectural pattern separates an application into three main components: the model, the view, and the controller. The ASP.NET MVC framework provides an alternative to the ASP.NET Web Forms pattern for creating Web applications. The ASP.NET MVC framework is a lightweight, highly testable presentation framework that (as with Web Forms-based applications) is integrated with existing ASP.NET features, such as master pages and membership-based authentication.
     
     The MVC pattern helps you create applications that separate the different aspects of the application (input logic, business logic, and UI logic), while providing a loose coupling between these elements. The pattern specifies where each kind of logic should be located in the application. The UI logic belongs in the view. Input logic belongs in the controller. Business logic belongs in the model. This separation helps you manage complexity when you build an application, because it enables you to focus on one aspect of the implementation at a time.

    SMCKC October Breakfast: Linda Buchner with MINDDRIVE | 
    October 4th
    MINDDRIVE is an educational program that uses experiential methods to
    teach at-risk urban high school teens through hands-on work in its
    automotive design and contemporary communication classes. The
    automotive class builds prototype ultra-high-efficiency alternative
    fuel plug-in electric vehicles designed to drive efficiently. The
    communications class teaches students how to write, present,
    photograph, video, construct and manage web pages and use social media
    channels.
     
    Linda Buchner, the President & Cause Marketing/Public Relations
    Director of MINDDRIVE and Eric Looney, Group Creative Director at VML, will discuss how they teamed up to develop and execute the MINDDRIVE'S Social Fuel Tour.
    The SFT was a social media-fueled drive this past summer, where they built an
    electric car, connected to an Arduino device that monitored the social activity about MINDDRIVE
    and their sponsors to govern their car's power. The students went on an incredible journey from K.C. to D.C. with their "social fuel" and a strong message about the hands-on learning methods of MINDDRIVE. The students and mentors of the program were sponsored by our state's Congressman, Emanuel Cleaver and they met with legislators and government officials to help drive change in education.
     
    COMPUTER DRIVE AT OCTOBER BREAKFAST: This is your opportunity to bring used desktop or laptop computers to be donated to Connecting for Good. We'll have a collection at the October 4 breakfast at ThinkBig with tax receipts available. Click here for more information!

    • 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.

    Hello Kansas City!

    I'd like to thank Andrew and VML for allowing us to meet at their offices this month.  If you haven't been out to VML, it's very cool--and in the Downtown Airport to boot!  I hope to see you this Saturday at 2:30!

    Just posting a reminder that our meeting is next week and to ask that you register if you plan on attending.

     

    This should be a great presentation\discussion.  I met with Craig last week and he gave me a preview of what he's thinking.  This presentation is well beyond the typical 'velocity and burn up charts' are good agile metrics.  I won't spoil it, but if you're on the fence on whether to attend or not or if your organization is struggling with agile adoption do yourself a favor and join us on the 26th.  If you think your organization has Agile in its DNA and can sneeze meaningful metrics, join us and share your insights. 

     

    Also, I humbly recommend that you BRING YOUR PM'S, PMO PERSONAS AND LEADERS.  They'll get a good dose of the importance of understanding what Agile metrics really are and what they are not.

    See you on 9/26/13!

    This one-day seminar for designers covers how to apply the principles of good user and experience (UX) and interaction design (IXD) across a range of devices, from smartphones to tablets to laptops, and it prepares you to craft designs that work seamlessly across different screen sizes. We will discuss using grids and breakpoints, navigation, content layout and scaling, and effective responsive design patterns in the context of a hands-on project where you'll create a simple responsive prototype.

  • Needs a location

  • Our Standard Meeting Format
    We love Web Development, PHP, new development techniques and everything in between. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but for the most part fall into...
    • Meet and Greet new members!
    • Review the "Last Month in PHP" - Highlighting the latest happenings in the PHP Universe
    • Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question

    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand PHP Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than only PHP. Whether you're curious or just starting out, only dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, FuelPHP, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.

    Interested in giving a more formal presentation to the group, or demoing something new and cool you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and tell us your ideas!

    HUG Access SIG Meeting 6:30 pm, September 18, 2013, at JCCC, Regnier Center - 3rd Floor, RC 353

     

    Beginning Presentation:

    Title: Lookup Wizard 101

    Presenter: Lisa Friedrichsen

     

    Description: In this session we'll examine the Lookup Wizard to see how it provides a drop-down list of values for a field. We'll examine all of the Lookup Wizard options to see how they modify corresponding field Lookup properties. We'll also examine how the Lookup Wizard can be used to create a one-to-many relationship between two tables with referential integrity.

     

    Lisa is a JCCC Professor in the Computer Sciences department and also an Access textbook author. She thinks it is fun to "break down" confusing features in Access (such as the Lookup Wizard) so that they make better sense.

     

     

    Advanced Presentation:

    Title: VB code to handle importing CSV files into Access.

    Presenter: Janet Geisinger

     

    Description: If you have an ongoing need to import CSV files into Access tables, Visual Basic code can be used to automate the process. This presentation will explain the process and the VB code used.

     

    Janet Gelsinger has worked at Hallmark Cards for 22 years, currently as a Data Analyst in Hallmark Digital, designing the databases for new Hallmark.com projects. For nine years prior to this recent job change, Janet was a Teradata DBA working on Hallmark’s Enterprise Data Warehouse.

    Access 2013 on Demand by Steve Johnson, Perspection, Inc. Need answers quickly? Access 2013 on Demand provides those answers in a visual step-by-step format. We will show you exactly what to do through lots of full color illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions.
