  • Giving Spring some REST - by Spring in Action author Craig Walls
    NOTE: This talk will be given in person thanks to generous sponsorship of travel accommodations provided by NoFluff Just Stuff!
    Abstract
    In modern applications, there are a diverse array of clients consuming content from the web. Each of these clients has unique capabilities and limitations, therefore demanding presentation of the application to be tailored to each device. As a result, presentation logic is often pushed into the client itself, leaving the application to serve a common data-oriented lightweight API to be consumed by each client.
    In this presentation, we'll see how Spring is well-suited for developing that lightweight API, employing the RESTful features of Spring MVC. We'll also look at how to secure those APIs using Spring Security for OAuth and how to create self-describing REST APIs using Spring HATEOAS.
    Bio
    Craig Walls is a senior engineer with Pivotal as the Spring Social project lead and is the author of Spring in Action. He's a zealous promoter of the Spring Framework, speaking frequently at local user groups and conferences and writing about Spring. When he's not slinging code, Craig spends as much time as he can with his wife, two daughters, 2 birds and 3 dogs.
    Schedule
    • 6 - 7pm - Social Hour with Pizza provided by Cerner

    This months Agile KC meeting will be held on Thursday September 25, 2014 at Centriq Training.  Please visit www.agilekc.org to register so we know how many people will be joining us for dinner.  

     

    Meeting Topic:  

    Get KanBan!

     

    Meeting Learning:

    This month, Troy Tuttle will lead the group in the Get KanBan game. This game teaches the basics of KanBan and is a great way to introduce the concepts of flow and WIP to your organization.

     

    Meeting Description:

    Kan Ban is a core tenant of Lean thinking.  When organizations and teams use it, they often realize a couple of benefits very quickly; the visualization of flow and identification of bottlenecks in their process.  Some other aspects of lean thinking also help further the benefits; cumulative flow diagrams and specialization vs. multi-functional skills.

    Join us at this month's meeting to get a better understanding of these concepts and how you might be able to recreate this discussion in your organization by using the Get KanBan game.

     

    Speaker Bio:

    Troy Tuttle is a Lean-Agile coach, software developer mentor, and consultant with almost a decade of experience working in Lean-Agile environments. He currently operates KanFlow, a consulting firm dedicated to helping software professionals, teams, and organizations improve by the study and application of Lean and Agile principles and practices. 

     

    Hope to see you there!

    For our September meetup, Amit Jain will talk about Rethinking User Experience in iOS. With iOS 7, and now 8, design paradigms for apps have changed significantly. The change goes much deeper than just aesthetics. It spans the entire app development process and requires a revision in how we plan for and build apps. We will talk about how to architect apps with a focus on interactions, sensible animations and great user experience. We will look at ways to prototype and implement animations, customizing iOS elements, and weaving everything together in storyboards and interface builder. Additionally, to get your apps ready for the larger iPhones, we will discuss size classes introduced in iOS 8 and how to adopt vectors resources in your UI.
    Folks, we have limited seating at this location, so if you decide to not attend please update your RSVPs as soon as you can so that wait listed members can plan ahead. Also, if you are on the wait list, please reach out to me, and we can set up extra seating.
    If you have a project you want to show and talk with the group about for future meetups, please contact us. If you would like to hear about any specific topic in any future meetups, please feel free to let the group know! Also, we have a new Linkedin Group to stay in touch out side of the meetup.

  • The .NET framework has a long history of supporting asynchronous and parallel programming techniques. Let's explore that evolution and establish an understanding of the latest abstractions: the TPL, PLINQ, Parallel Data Structures, the Reactive Framework and the async features of C# 5. These abstractions make parallel programming more accessible than ever before. But, the abstractions don't negate the need for care. We'll talk about when to use them, when not to, readability, testability, partitioning work and how to achieve long term, maintainable applications. You'll walk away with the foundations to start applying these techniques in your own work.

    Our Saturday meetings are free-formed and the attendees bring up topics that interest them or that they want feedback on. Our rough meeting structure follows this format:
    * Introductions / meet and greet new members
    Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question; discussing any new happenings that interest the group
    * S
    etting up your development environment, reviewing code written by others, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)
    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand PHP developers come from all backgrounds, many doing work as developers using other languages than just PHP, while many others are from a system administration background.
    Our attendees range in all skill levels from beginner, to weekend warrior, to development professionals and experts. Whether you're curious about PHP and just starting out, or work with PHP for a living, our goal is that you will learn something new, useful and thought provoking during one of our meetings.

    Regular attendees of our meetings are knowledgeable about and use the following PHP frameworks/libraries: Symfony, Zend Framework, Laravel, Composer, Silex, Slim, CakePHP, WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, just to name the most popular.
    Interested in giving a more formal presentation to the group, or demoing something new and exciting you're working on? Contact one of our organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting and tell us your ideas!
