Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 6:00:00 PM Stowers Institute 1000 E 50th St, Kansas City,

Please join us for an evening of looking at the exciting past month of PHP news and hacking on open source projects. Need help with a project or want some peer-review? Bring it in!

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 - Eric Poe

6:30pm - Hack on personal and open-source projects

Your topic here? Contact us to speak! 


Rate the talks! 


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!

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:

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!

Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 1:00:00 PM Oak Park Library (Large Meeting Room) 9500 Bluejacket St., Overland Park, KS

Ray Harris will talk about git and github. Benjamin Rogers will talk about merging.

Just as a reminder, a beginners topics meeting covers fundamental aspects of R that anyone learning R needs to know in order to succeed. Some examples of beginner topics talks include file manipulation, importing data from Excel, subsetting data structures, and recoding variables.

In contrast, an advanced topics meeting covers aspects of R that are more specialized. Some examples of advanced topics include LASSO regression, R on the Raspberry Pi, wavelets, colors in R, interactive web applications built with R, Bayesian models, data mining using the caret package, and survival data analysis. You don't have to be a beginner to show up at a beginners topics meeting. Advanced users can still benefit by getting a more complete understanding of fundamental R features.

You don't have to be an advanced user to show up at an advanced topics meeting. Beginners can benefit from these talks to because they give you an idea of the breadth and power that R has.

Finally, on some months, we hold a hack session. There are no formal presentations during a hack session. Just show up ready to ask questions of the others in the group. We have a very broad and diverse membership, so there's a very good chance that someone will be available to help you with any questions about R that you might have.

Alexa Skills Kit with Web API on Azure

Amazon Echo, Amazon Tap and Echo Dot have brought voice interfaces to life for the home. We will discuss ways to integrate your existing software or database into an Alexa Skill, allowing for voice-activated, meaningful interaction with a user. Using this SAAS approach, a Web API hosted on Azure can make this process easy for rapid prototyping. We will build and deploy a skill that you can use immediately with your Alexa enabled device, and discuss the challenges of the publishing journey to get in Alexa's Skill Store.

Abstract:
This presentation demonstrates how to run Node.js microservices with Docker containers in production using ContainerPilot and Consul. This talk also describes potential pitfalls to be aware of when using Docker and when building microservices. The working example application utilizes hapi and seneca as well as InfluxDB. The example application demonstrates monitoring your containers using Prometheus. Everything presented is capable of running anywhere that Docker can run.

• Docker

• Potential pitfalls

• Docker, docker-compose and related configuration

• Node.js microservices - Writing services using hapi and Seneca
