  • In our next Meetup Stephen Christense­n will be giving a presentation on Spatial Wizards, Elephants, and OGRes: Pouring the Foundation to Engineer a GIS with Open Source.
    Regardless of whether you’re building a web map, RESTful service, desktop GUI, or ETL tool, there are some common themes you will need to consider and implement when building a non-trivial GIS. How should I store my data? Can I quickly access the right data as my app grows? Is it feasible to interact with my clients’ arbitrary GIS data to add value to the app? We will focus on tools written for the C-family of programming languages, specifically GDAL/OGR, PostGIS, and postgres Foreign Data Wrappers, then show you how to use Python to pull it all together and build a respectable application.
    I am very much looking forward to this presentation! See you there!

    Directions:
    Travel to TranSystems in Crown Center, Just park in the parking lot at 2400 Pershing Road. The parking lot entrance is on the north side. Just go in front of the West Crown Center hotel, keep going east to McGee Street. McGee runs into the parking garage.

      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.

    Speaker Bios:
    Linda Claussen - A frequent speaker at conferences and user groups, Linda's 40+ years of experience spans the various roles of application developer, project manager, Data Base Administration and Systems Programmer. Linda's first exposure to DB2 started with DB2 1.1 and since the late 80’s she has been actively engaged in consulting and training assignments to large DB2 environments. She has frequently worked with new DB2 sites performing the initial DB2 install, providing training and consulting to the Project Leader, DBAs and Application staff responsible for the initial DB2 pilot project and conducting design reviews to insure successful project implementation. Linda is currently a senior systems advisor for Themis, Inc., a past member of the IBM DB2 GOLD Consultants program and a current member of the IBM consultants advisory counsel.

    Abstracts:
    Using DB2 for z/OS Extended Features to Solve Complex Requirements
    Throughout the last several releases of DB2 for z/OS IBM has introduced extended features to address complex data access requirements. Making informed choices in the utilization of MQTs, Table Expressions, Clone tables, Global Temporary Tables, Archive and Temporal Tables, surrogate keys, and more are critical to performance. This 2 part session helps the application developer and database administrator in the selection, use and implementation of the extended features of DB2 to solve complex performance problems.

    Objectives:

              Create and manage array data types, surrogate keys,  MQTs, clones, triggers, temporal tables, temporary tables, hash tables, LOBs, and more
              Make informed advanced feature selection choices.
              Identify key strengths and weaknesses of selected features.

    Data Server Manager Overview and Demo
    Customers have always had separate tools for database administration, performance monitoring, configuration management, and query tuning. Now you can do all of these tasks using one tool. IBM® Data Server Manager Base Edition (DSM) is available as a no-charge download from Developer Works. DSM Base Edition is a simple, scalable, and smart solution to administer, monitor, manage, and optimize the performance of IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows databases across the enterprise. Available with DB2 for Advanced Enterprise Server Edition and as a Business-value offering is the IBM Data Server Manager Enterprise Edition. The Enterprise Edition includes historical monitoring and analysis, smart alerting, client configuration and monitoring, query tuning, and more. Both editions offer a lightweight setup option for real-time monitoring and administration. DSM Enterprise Edition requires a repository database that can be created and setup before or after DSM is up and running. Today, you will see a high-level overview of DSM and then we will go through a demo of the product.

    This is a group for people interested in bioinformatic applications, either as researcher or a programmer. The Kansas City area has a large concentration of biotechnology companies and institutions doing amazing and diverse work. I'm hoping this group will give people a chance to meet others in this field. We'll meet once a month after work for a happy hour to see how everyone is doing and to discuss projects, interests, or whatever. I want to help grow the bioinformatic community in KC, and I think a little face-to-face time would do us all wonders.

    KC SQL Server User Group - Overcoming Chartaphobia

     

    Thursday, November 19, 2015 from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
    Presenter:  Meagan Longoria
    Topic:  Overcoming Chartaphobia: Moving Your Organization Toward Interesting and Enlightening Data Visualization

    Do your organization’s reports consist mostly of giant tables of data? Perhaps you’ve gotten as far as adding KPI indicators to the tables. Although tables of data presented as reports are commonly found in many organizations, they might be doing you and your users a disservice. You should optimize your data visualization just as you optimize your databases. Reports are a user interface that must be purposefully designed to help users achieve their goal of making informed decisions. In this session we’ll review some data visualization best practices and apply those concepts to the use of Microsoft reporting tools such as Excel, Power View, and SQL Server Reporting Services. You’ll leave with guidance on how to take boring, unreadable tables of data and turn them into useful and visually appealing reports.

    Abstracts:
    Using DB2 for z/OS Extended Features to Solve Complex Requirements
    Throughout the last several releases of DB2 for z/OS IBM has introduced extended features to address complex data access requirements. Making informed choices in the utilization of MQTs, Table Expressions, Clone tables, Global Temporary Tables, Archive and Temporal Tables, surrogate keys, and more are critical to performance. This 2 part session helps the application developer and database administrator in the selection, use and implementation of the extended features of DB2 to solve complex performance problems.
     
    Objectives:
     
              Create and manage array data types, surrogate keys,  MQTs, clones, triggers, temporal tables, temporary tables, hash tables, LOBs, and more
              Make informed advanced feature selection choices.
              Identify key strengths and weaknesses of selected features.
     
    Data Server Manager Overview and Demo
    Customers have always had separate tools for database administration, performance monitoring, configuration management, and query tuning. Now you can do all of these tasks using one tool. IBM® Data Server Manager Base Edition (DSM) is available as a no-charge download from Developer Works. DSM Base Edition is a simple, scalable, and smart solution to administer, monitor, manage, and optimize the performance of IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows databases across the enterprise. Available with DB2 for Advanced Enterprise Server Edition and as a Business-value offering is the IBM Data Server Manager Enterprise Edition. The Enterprise Edition includes historical monitoring and analysis, smart alerting, client configuration and monitoring, query tuning, and more. Both editions offer a lightweight setup option for real-time monitoring and administration. DSM Enterprise Edition requires a repository database that can be created and setup before or after DSM is up and running. Today, you will see a high-level overview of DSM and then we will go through a demo of the product.
