  • Brian Cardarella of DockYard will be presenting at RailsConf and has graciously offered to present at a KC Elixir MeetUp.
    Thursday, May 5 is right in the middle of RailsConf, and follows our "first Thursday" schedule, so... BOOM! We have a MeetUp.
    Brian would like to talk about Courier, an Elixir library for mail delivery on which he's been working. (If a majority of our attendees would *rather* hear about "Rails to Phoenix", we can convince him, but he was concerned that would be more Ruby-y than Elixir-y.)
    I'm kicking several ideas for venue:
    • Brightergy has offered to host us again
    • Sprint Accelerator (I think they have an excellent setup for MeetUps)
    • Kauffman Foundation Conference center (also a good venue for MeetUps, near Country Club Plaza, which I think could be a nice attraction for any out-of-towners who might attend)
    If anyone has any input on venue, please let me know.

  • Please join us for a preview of the PHP 7 talk that Joseph Maxwell will be giving at php[tek] next month in St. Louis.
    Light refreshments will be provided. Join us to meet new people, discuss PHP, and learn something new. 
    Our Evening Meeting Format
    We love Web Development and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we shoot for this schedule:
    6:00pm - Mingling / Meet and Greet
    6:15pm - Lightning Talk: Last Month in PHP
    6:30pm - Talk: Writing Better Code with the New PHP 7
    PHP 7 is an exciting release in the world of PHP. In addition to major performance enhancements, PHP 7 provides many features that make writing code faster and protect from pesky software defects. These include the spaceship operator, the null coalesce operator, and an all-new order of execution. I will discuss pre-PHP 7 code and teach you how to take advantage of PHP 7. I will also share information on breaking changes to help you avoid headaches down the road.
    Your topic here? 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, Laravel, 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!

    This month's Agile KC meeting will be held at 6:30 PM on Thursday April 28, 2016 at Centriq Training.   This will be a sponsored event.


    To register and to get a map please visit www.agilekc.org.


    Meeting Topic:
    UX and Agile - Making it Hum

    Meeting Learning
    More and more User Experience (UX) is becoming a key differentiation and a critical component of solutions.  The market is fickle and the usability of a solution is just as important as the content and capabilities.  As an example consider how Yahoo is undergoing significant changes to its UX while Amazon is refining their model. 

    Meeting Description
    This month’s Agile KC session brings in Jenny Tarwater and Chrys Sullivan to discuss the intersection of Agile and UX.  Plan on joining us to learn more about:
    • The Agile Mind-set: the focus on value, experimentation and collaboration 
    • Scrum in 5 minutes: A primer to baseline our talks 
    • Top 5 reasons UX fails in Agile and tips for overcoming 
    • Leveraging "Sprint 0" and "UX Runway" strategies to overcome timeline and resource crunches 
    • Best practices for getting more accurate time estimates from designers 
    • Lean UX strategies for quick, effective user validation during cycles 
    • Strategies for forming a team with UX impact 

    Speakers Bio ’s
    Chrys Sullivan - Founder/CEO of Useagility, a user experience firm located in Kansas City, serving the Silicon Prairie and beyond. I believe that usable, intuitive product design translates directly to financial success for technology companies. I’m obsessed with product strategy, user experience strategy and UI designs that achieve business results. 
     
    Jenny Tarwater - Founder/Chief Agilist of Blueshift Innovation, which provides agile coaching, training and facilitation. Jenny Tarwater is a 20-year veteran of Technical Project and Program Management with a disciplined approach of cultivating success and growth in people, process and products. Jenny’s mission as a kinetic leader, partner and consummate student is to lead others to surpass goals, contribute positive impressions in collaborative environments and explore undiscovered opportunities and solutions through continuous learning. Jenny’s endless motivation drives her involvement in cultivating the “small company start up culture” in companies large and small.

These meet-ups are free for members of Hammerspace unless we have an organized group activity you want to participate in (such as soldering a provided electronics kit, etc)
    We hope these meet-up nights bring our more tech-minded members together to network, socialize, and collaborate with each other, much like our art-minded members do during our Art Jam nights.

  • Back in the B.C. years (Before Computers), animators worked with pencils, paints and reams of overlays taking months and years creating their cartoons. Computers speeded up the process with digital puppets, but an animation still required millions of mouse clicks. Now, with Adobe Character Designer  (included with After Effects CC), all you need is a properly layered digital puppet and your face to create (lip-synced!) animations.
    Join us Tuesday night, May 3, as Adobe Senior Experience Designer Dave Werner shows us how this digital miracle works. 
    Fresh from NAB, Dave will join us live in a Connect session from 7 to 7:45. After his presentation we will go deeper into Character Designer with a few tutorials. We'll send you home with a link to an example file that you can play with on your own.
    Come get animated with us on Tuesday, and bring a friend!

    As we developed the next version of SharePoint Server 2016, we paid close attention to trends in team collaboration, user experiences across devices, and how the cloud can be blended into existing on-premises scenarios in new and compelling ways. In particular, we focused on delivering value to customers as part of their on-premises deployments, while at the same time making it easier to take advantage of Cloud innovation thru Hybrid deployments of SharePoint with Office 365. With that backdrop, SharePoint Server 2016 delivers enhancements and new capabilities in three major areas:
    New user experiences
    Cloud-inspired infrastructure with Hybrid at the core
    People-centric compliance

    You are invited to the April meeting of the Kansas City Chapter of the Open Web Application Security Project!  
    We are excited to announce that for this month we have Shogo Cottrell, Security Strategist at HP Enterprise Security, to speak about Application Security and the 2016 HP Cyber Risk Report, which highlighted Application Security as one of the key areas of focus for Information Security in 2016:
    • Attackers have shifted their efforts to directly attack applications - The perimeter of your network is no longer where you think it is. With today’s mobile devices and broad interconnectivity, the actual perimeter of your network is likely in your pocket right now. Attackers realize this as well and have shifted their focus from servers and operating systems directly to applications.
    Shogo has been an active participant in the KC Information Security community for many years, and we are looking forward to his presentation! If you have (or are!) a developer needing a high-level view of the importance of application security, this will likely be a great meeting to attend.
    As usual, the meeting will be from 6:30 to 8:00pm at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center, just East of the Plaza.  Please RSVP if possible so we can provide an accurate count to the facility, but don't let a lack of RSVP discourage you from attending!

We’ll take a high level look at the NoSQL market space and then discuss the architecture of modern distributed and cloud applications and focus on how DataStax Enterprise can help to reduce the complexity of these systems. We will then focus on how having search, analytics, and graph in direct communication with your transactional workload further simplifies development of enterprise applications. Lastly we will discuss Cassandra, which powers DataStax Enterprise, and enables us to achieve linear scalability and high availability across multiple geographies.
