July Breakfast: Visual Resonance in Social Media, Friday, July 10, 7:30 am - 9 am, Grand St. Cafe, 4740 Grand Ave., Kansas City, MO 
Statistics tell us that posting images and videos significantly increase social engagement. But will any image or video do? Hint Director of Creative Strategy Stefan Mumaw (@stefanmumaw) believes that there are characteristics that your images and videos could possess that will connect more passionately and get shared more frequently. He’ll share these characteristics of visual resonance and even give you a couple of tools you could use to make your social conversations more than just words and phrases.
RSVP now!

    Cerner Innovation Center

  • Logging & Metrics With Docker - A Comprehensive Monitoring Solution
    Stefan Zier is the Chief Architect at Sumo Logic. He enjoys building and running large distributed systems. He is also one of the key influencers for Sumo Logic’s DevOps culture. Prior to Sumo Logic, Stefan was a key contributor to several products at ArcSight (now HP).
    In this talk Stefan will quickly summarize how people have dealt with logging in Docker historically and then describe a comprehensive approach to logging and monitoring in Docker, based on research and customer interviews.
    While Docker adds a welcome layer of abstraction to the deployment of applications, it also challenges assumptions on how those applications should be managed. Stefan will discuss a comprehensive approach for collecting logs and metrics into a centralized platform and dissect the latest additions to Docker itself (log drivers, stats).




    ***********
    Please enter Cerner's campus through Marion Park Dr. You’ll follow Marion Park Drive bypassing Hickman Mills Drive until reaching the Security Gate. Remain in the left hand lane to stop at the Security office and notify them you are attending the DevOps Meetup. From there, you will be directed to park in the lot closest to The Lounge where the meetup will be held and myself or another organizer will be at the door to escort you to the meeting location. When leaving Cerner following the meetup, if the gate is down there is a button to push which will notify security to lift it and you should be able to get out with no problem

    Stowers Institute

    1000 E 50th St, Kansas City, MO (map)
     

  • Join us on the First Wednesday of each month to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new.  This week we have two exciting presentations from James and Joseph. 
    Our Evening Meeting Format
    We love Web Development and all things PHP. Our meetings often pack a lot of information so we try and keep them on a schedule
    6:00pm - Mingling / Meet and Greet 
    6:15pm - Presentations
    Joseph Maxwell - Design Patterns to Make Your Code Perform Better
    Joseph will walk us through a handful of patterns available to developers to solve common problems.
    James Aaron - Regular Expressions
    James will discuss getting started with using regular expressions to validate or parse text that strpos() or explode() just can't reach.


    Presenting is a great way to learn something new!
    Is there a topic you are excited to learn about but haven't made it a priority to dig deeper?  Teaching others is a great way to learn new things--Contact us to speak!

    All Developers Welcome!
    We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious and 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 presentation to the group, or demoing something you're working on? Contact one of the organizers through Meetup or talk after a monthly meeting to sign up!

    • 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.

  • While we are an IxDA user group, we are also sponsored by Adobe. Two times a year we do a demo night. What does that mean to me?
    Demo night for a UX group is a blast. Come share what you've done this year in UX. You can just show something, or you can use it as a critique. Something personal or your portfolio, your choice.
    Everyone who does a demo gets a chance to win a year's Creative Cloud subscription from Adobe. If you have been to another meeting, you double your chances.
    No, you don't have to participate in the demo's but it is lots of fun to see what everyone has been up to in the UX world.

  • Hi!
    Let's meet, drink, and discuss all things IT-related.
    I thought we could try out a (relatively) new venue, Tapcade.
    Tapcade has a lot of seating available, as well as an extensive and inexpensive menu, and a collection of retro arcade machines to play with (if you so choose).

    I will be staying afterwards to see a showing of the 1990s classic film, "Strange Days". If you want to join me, tickets are only $5.

    Sprint Accelerator

    210 W. 19th Terr., Kansas City, MO (map)

    Jérôme Petazzoni, Engineer at Docker, will be joining the DevOps KC Meetup for the second time to present:
    Deep Dive into Copy-on-Write and Docker Storage Drivers
    The first release of Docker only supported AUFS, and AUFS was available (out of the box) only on Debian and Ubuntu kernel. Then Red Hat wanted Docker to run on its distros, and contributed the Device Mapper driver, and later the BTRFS driver, and recently the overlayfs driver. Docker 1.7 will have (or has, depending on when you read those lines!) support for ZFS.
    Jerome will present how those drivers compare from a high-level perspective, explaining their pros and cons. This will help the audience to make more informed decisions when picking the most appropriate driver for their workloads. Then he will show each driver in action, and look at low-level implementation details. The presentation won't dive into the golang implementation code itself, but will explain the concepts of each driver. This will help to better understand how they work, and give some hints when it comes to troubleshooting their behavior.

    ***Please enter Sprint Accelerator via 19th Terrace.***
    ***Pizza and soda will be provided***

    Since this month's Agile KC meeting falls smack dab in the middle of the KCDC conference (http://www.kcdc.info/) we're going to help you with the hard decision you are undoubtably facing; 'How can I possibly take in all the great content at the conference and make it out south for more great content at the Agile KC meeting?!'

    We are not going to meet at our regular place and time this month and will reconnect next month with an even bigger extravaganza.  Next month's meeting will be a joint meeting with the local IIBA chapter.  These are always high energy and fun, so stay tuned for more information.

    If you have not registered for KCDC, there is still time at the URL above.  This conference remains one of the most cost effective ways to spend your training dollars in the area.  I hope to see you at KCDC!
