  • Abstract
    It can be complicated learning the ins and outs of any technology stack. When this complexity is compounded by needing to understand how to secure our applications, it can be daunting.
    In this talk we will discuss how to rapidly and correctly apply Spring Security to an existing application. Along the way we will spend a lot of time demoing security exploits and see how to mitigate them, answer frequently asked questions, and learn established best practices.
    Whether you are new to Spring Security or a seasoned Spring Security user, this presentation is a must.

  • Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:
      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.
    Looking forward to it!

  • Do you have questions about your business taxes or accounting issues that you would like to ask a CPA ? Then you are in luck! We are having a special presentation with a Q&A session by Harry C. Wilson, CPA, CGMA, of Wilson Accounting & Consulting Services, LLC.
    Please post your questions ahead of the meeting on the discussion area below or send them direct to me: Dennis Mullins. Thanks
    Harry’s Bio: I started my CPA firm, focused on helping small businesses, in February 2015. I most recently worked for a title insurance company. My experience includes over seventeen years at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation - Office of Inspector General (FDIC-OIG) in Washington, DC and over five years at a large regional bank in the Southeast. I am a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and licensed in Missouri and Virginia. I hold a bachelor’s degree in business administration, with a concentration in accounting, from Mid-America Nazarene University.
    Most small business owners and entrepreneurs do not go into business to do their accounting. Many have limited business knowledge or experience. They went into business to chase a dream. They often have anxiety over trying to take care of their accounting, wondering if they are doing it correctly and fretting over how much time it takes away from them. I help them by taking care of their accounting and consulting needs. This helps to relieve their anxiety and free up their time to chase their dream and grow their business. I help small businesses with their accounting needs including bookkeeping, account reconciliations, reporting, business taxes, budgeting/forecasting, business planning, cash flow management, process improvement and business coaching/consulting.
    I look forward to meeting with you!
    Please post any questions on bookkeeping, account reconciliations, reporting, business taxes, budgeting,forecasting, business planning, cash flow management and other related questions that you have. This will allow Harry to give the best answers possible.

  • Recommendation engines are ubiquitous on the web, but for data scientists used to building predictive models, common approaches can be a little hard to understand. Yashwanth and Matt from Pinsight Media will discuss their journey in creating a recommendation engine for mobile apps, what different approaches can be used, and show examples using PySpark.
    Data Scientists often need to make their work accessible to others in a way that is both dynamic and interactive but most data scientists are not full blown web developers. This poses a problem. Matthew Russell from C2FO will talk about how you can leverage a couple Python libraries to avoid getting lost in the weeds. Spyre runs on the minimalist Python web framework Cherrypy with Jinja2 templating and can readily accommodate Pandas dataframes or Matplotlib objects. Pygal is a dynamic SVG charting library written in Python and Bokeh is an interactive visualization library that targets modern web browsers for presentation.
