Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 6:00:00 PM The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop 5200 E. 45th St., Kansas City, MO

Every Thursday, the members of Hammerspace gather to socialize, network, and meet new members of the space. We welcome the community at large to come down during this time to explore the workshop, check out all of the tools, fabrication equipment and work space made available to HammerSpace members, and ask questions of our community of Hammerspace users.

There is plenty of off-street parking, a kids playroom available for tiny makers, and the evening is always the origin point of new and amazing creative ideas.

Tours are led every 30 minutes for those curious about the tools and capabilities of the facility and staff. This is a free event, open to the public.

With the constant race to stay ahead of user needs and experiences, it is easy to lose sight of the users with unique needs. Often, making a site accessible is treated like an enhancement - a nice bonus we may get to…eventually. How can we flip that and make accessibility a central feature of any site? And how can testing serve that goal?

Journey in someone else's shoes during this discussion of accessibility needs and solutions. We will discuss the current state of accessibility and explore methodology for accessibility testing. Throughout we will also discuss methods for facilitating the accessibility conversation and engage all points within the development lifecycle. The majority of the tools discussed require minimal experience and, if you're reading this, you are more than equipped to learn more!


Andrea Johnson - Writer turned coder with a passion for good READMEs. As a technology apprentice at VMLY&R, I'm currently writing automated tests using Selenium, JBehave, Cucumber, Serenity and Jenkins. After learning the hard way, I like teaching the easy way. When I'm not improving my Java skills I love mountain biking. Both involve the possibility of disaster.

John Cardarella – A little mix of Chemist and Teacher, I found a new catalyst in coding. I began my apprenticeship at VMLY&R as an Automated Tester in Selenium with JBehave, Serenity, and Jenkins. I am currently applying what I've learned into a web development role but I enjoy the Automation Practice and do what I can to continue contributing to its growth.

Hybrid and multi-cloud environments are now standard deployments for enterprises. They augment traditional on-premises data center resources with public and private cloud infrastructure. Their flexibility and scalability provide organizations the required foundation to drive modern-day insights and value from data at scale through analytics and machine learning.

Join Cloudera + IBM as we discuss:
• Trends in enterprise hybrid cloud
• New and emerging value-creating use cases enabled by modern hybrid cloud architectures
• How enterprise data cloud fabrics evolve and accelerate success
