    In this session I will demonstrate how to create a DocumentDB instance in Azure, how to work with JSON documents, create Ad hoc queries with familiar SQL syntax, create application logic as stored procedures, triggers and user defined functions (UDFs) using standard JavaScript.
    Goals:
    #1 Show how to create validate JSON strings using Notepad++, validate the JSON against a schema using C# Newtonsoft dll. Demonstrate how to work with JSON in SQL Server as a reference on how hard it is to work with JSON when it is not natively stored.
    #2 Demo the basics of DocumentDB - Create the database, collections and documents using the web interface.  Demo how to perform basic selects, joins and filtering. Review java script basics as java script is fundamental in creating stored procedures
    #3 Demo of how to work with DocumentDB in a C# by creating collections, documents and querying the database using lync and SQL syntax.

    Indexes make queries run faster, right? Not always, no. And finding the right indexes for your needs is often more of an Art than a Science. Attend this session as we take a visual tour of how indexes are laid out and the way data is accessed when indexes are utilized. We will discuss clustered indexes as well as non-clustered indexes and also when to use indexed views along with some other variations.

    A deep-dive into what is sure to become a very critical feature of SQL Server 2016. We'll walk through some use-cases for the technology, and discuss why this kind of technology is needed - and how it can make a DBA's life easier - including making some regulatory compliance easier. We'll then walk though a typical implementation scenario live, and walk though a few demos and practical examples.

    It's common to start with a small database server; but when activity increases, how do you know when to scale? This session will cover scaling Sql Server from express to enterprise and VM to a scale-out HADR architecture. You'll learn common upgrade and migration techniques along with things to keep in mind when building new environments. We'll start with a stand alone server and work our way up to a large scale out and scale up deployment.

    Did you know that Profiler and SQL Trace are deprecated? I know it still works (even in SQL Server 2016 CTP2), but it will never be updated with the latest features. In fact it will never be updated at all! That means if you want to capture information about any new feature, from version SQL Server 2012 and beyond, you need to use another tool.
    That new tool is Extended Events (XE). Not only has it replaced Profiler, and can be used to capture information on all new features, but it is a substantially better tool!
    In this session we will discuss the architecture of Extended Events, how to setup a new trace from scratch or convert an existing Profiler trace, and the new abilities that never existed in Profiler. We will also cover the difference in overhead cost of Profiler and Extended Events. 
    Profiler was a friend of mine, but it is time to embrace the new king!

    Hadoop distributions can be a complicated road to navigate. Application names such as Spark, Pig, Hive, Falcon, and Ranger are interesting but give no indication as to what purpose they server or how they can be helpful to your organization. We'll take time in this session to work through the various components (Hortonworks HDP ships with 23 projects) and find which ones fit into your specific needs.

  • Transforming into Cloud Native
    Are you in the business of building/maintaining platforms or building/updating software for your business? 
    Are you in search of a highly automated cloud native platform that supports the entire application life-cycle and provides a real continuous delivery pipeline (testing, build, release and automation)?
    Are you willing to adopt new strategies, technologies and embark on cultural changes to accomplish your goals?
    If so, then Cloud Native should be a foundational element of your development strategy. 
    A cloud native platform is composed of several layers (Frameworks, Runtimes & Operations) that span & support the entire life-cycle of an application from development to production.
    Microservices based on 12 Factor, container orchestration, infrastructure automation and multi-cloud portability with continuous delivery are just a few of the attributes of a "Cloud Native" platform.
    Come hear first hand from subject matter expert Andrew Ripka from Pivotal on why the Cloud Native Platform is important and he will share some industry based transformations utilizing Cloud Foundry. In this session you will learn what does Cloud Native consist of, how to transform to enable Cloud Native and the benefits from this approach.

  • Fostering A Culture Where Data Matters: Eating BIG DATA One Small Bite At A Time
    In a day and age where most companies and app developers are struggling to leverage the myriad of customer data points that they are presented with, this discussion will provide a logical framework for acquiring, understanding and monetizing their data. Presenter, Jason Delker will also share some insights that may be useful regarding technical approaches, organizational structure and the type of culture that it requires to make data matter.
    Jason (also known as Delk to those who know him) is the Chief Technology and Chief Data Officer at Pinsight. His responsibilities include platform architecture and development, data science, portal/web development and reporting. He also believes that coordinating and driving a culture of "making data matter" across the organization is one of his most important roles. With over 25 years of experience in the telecom/Internet industry, Delk has been issued 109 patents by the U.S. Patent Office, has worked at four startup companies and even sold Internet and telecom services door-to-door early in his career. This journey led him to Sprint, where he managed the development of Sprint's connected vehicle program and the first–ever Sprint mobile application development team in 2009. Delk graduated from the University of Detroit, home of famous sports commentator Dick Vitale, and is the lead guitar and vocalist for Kansas City's critically-acclaimed band, The Devil's Marmalade.

    Meeting Topic:  
    Game Night!!!



    Meeting Learning:
    Gaming theory continues to advance and bring new ways to make learning and expanding one’s skill sets a lot of fun.  In this month’s session we’ll showcase a couple of games and different ways of explaining some Agile and Lean concepts in a non-traditional way.



    Meeting Description:
    Who doesn’t like to play a game every now and then?  Often times we look at work and learning new concepts as a drudgery that must be endured as part of the nature of our existence.  This is in line with the saying, ‘If work was fun, they wouldn’t pay you for it….’



    At AgileKC headquarters we like answer the aforementioned saying with the verbose Italian reply of ‘Basta!’  (For those not familiar with the term, dictionary.com provides the definition of ‘Enough!’).    We’re not sheep!  We can change our world for the better!  We just need a way to get the ball rolling.  Indeed, if your work-a-day world needs some spontaneity and light-heartedness in it, then this month’s Agile KC meeting is for you!



    We are going to play some games.   Not just any games, no we have more respect for your time than that.  We’ll be playing and talking about games that you can use in your organization to explain and illustrate different Agile | Lean concepts.  So bring a friend and plan on joining in on the fun.  If you’re not careful you might learn something in the process.



    Speaker's Bio:

    There will be a variety of speakers at this month’s meeting.  One of them might be you!  We have a couple of games already identified for the meeting, but have room for one or two more, if you have a learning game that you are fond of and would like to share.   The caveats are: the game must have a learning component associated with an Agile | Lean philosophy or practice, and should be able to be played in about 20 minutes by a group of people.  We know that there are a lot of great games out there, and we want you to share your favorite!

    If you are interested in submitting a game for consideration, please email Martin Olson at molsonkc@gmail.com.

    We look forward to seeing you on the 24th!
