Description


Functional Programming Fundamentals

Functional programming is rapidly gaining momentum as a mainstream programming paradigm. It has been adopted by major players: from Facebook's Haskell based spam filter, to F# - Microsoft's own functional language. But, despite the hype, it is still a mystery to many. This talk aims to demystify the basic functional programming concepts by explaining how functional programming naturally evolves from lambda calculus, and how to use it to write robust and highly declarative code.

C2FO will be providing food and drinks for everyone to enjoy.

Speaker Bio

Leo is a Sr. Software Engineer at Cerner Corporation, where he, along with 2 other people, designed a functional inspired UI framework. His unhealthy obsession with functional programming started a couple of years ago, by painfully learning Haskell. It now has degraded into Elm, Purescript, and dependent types.

Meeting Topic: Various Conference Reviews and Lean Coffee


Description:
Join the Agile KC group this month where we'll discuss some the formats and feedback about the various Agile conferences that occur throughout the year (The Scrum Gathering, Agile Alliance, Lean Agile KC, Agile Gravy, DevOp Days, KCDC, etc.) to share what attendees like and wish for about each. If you've been to any of these conferences in the past or if you're curious about what some of the other conferences are like, be sure to join the group for this discussion. 

Depending on time, we'll also leverage the Lean Coffee format to cover topics and questions that attendees might have. Not familiar with Lean Coffee? It is a time boxed, consensus driven facilitation technique that allows or rich discussions to occur without them getting too off topic or long. 

Hope to see you there!

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!

Leveraging NuGet in Your Projects


Have you ever been in the situation where you had several related projects in, or multiple teams working out of, a single behemoth solution (maybe they all shared a set of common libraries)? Or maybe you have had to deal with a complicated procedure where you have to checkout and build supporting projects before you can actually work on your own project. We'll take a look at how we can simplify these scenarios, and support others, by turning our common libraries into NuGet packages that each dependent project can consume. We'll also look at how you can leverage CI and public or private NuGet servers to make the delivery process painless.

Architects often utilize iterative, creative processes that help them develop the end effect of their design.  Distilled in this creative process is the ability of an architect to take on a variety of positional arguments and organize the details into a finite and meaningful experience.  Can the world of architecture offer frameworks for improving the world of data science?  I will illustrate a variety of creative methods used by architects and juxtapose these against a variety of issues in Data Science.  My aim is to provide alternative methods and ways of thinking to improve your own working processes in order to craft the details of Data Science into a finite and meaningful experience.

7:45 - Wrap up - get project updates


Location: Think Bit CoWorking on the West side of the building.

Please RSVP so that we know how many snacks & drinks to bring.

Civic Heroes of all types welcome! This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

Bring a laptop: If you intend on getting some hands-on hacking done (it's ok if you can't but it definitely helps to have one).

On first Mondays, there will be pizza! We'll be getting some 'za from Sizzle Pie, so there will be a vegetarian option.

If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about, please let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself. We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.
