Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Denny's Restaurant 1600 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City,

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!

We'll be giving away some free devices, so make sure you're there early!

The nature of application delivery now spans public and private clouds and edge computing, while the end clients accessing these applications are people and machines. Securing these diverse environments while maintaining productivity and minimizing errors is challenging, to say the least. The classic models of arranging everything inside a perimeter, whether this is a private DC or a virtual private cloud (VPC), and providing access over a VPN are falling apart under the weight of complexity and inadequacy.

In this talk we will dive into an identity based model for providing access to users, whether it is to Web-type applications over REST APIs, or infrastructure itself through SSH and RDP. Starting from the principals of an OAUTH/OIDC infrastructure, we will discuss how the concepts can be extended to cover all forms of remote access without the overhead of VPNs and bastion hosts and while maintaining a zero trust security posture. Some of the use cases of this approach include:
- Privileged access management (SSH or RDP access to VMs)
- Authorization for web-services
- User specific access to Cloud Provider resources (i.e. AWS S3 buckets) while maintaining audit trails.

Park in garage, walk across to main lobby atrium entrance, take stairs or elevator to 3rd floor. Signs will be posted. Click here for event

Having trouble finding time to write your blog post. Me too.

I want to have a dedicated time to work on my blog post each week, I figured it would be great to schedule a time to blog and be with other WordPress people.

Let's get together and write and talk some, but be a support network to get our blog posts written.

This is not a help session, it is to post blogs.

This is not an information session, it is to post on your own website.

I plan on two in the morning per Month on Tuesdays or Wednesdays... Depending on my teaching schedule. Hope you to see you there.

NOTE - The library has free wifi. If you want a secure internet connection, bring your own hotspot - one will not be provided. The library does have secure computers right outside the conference 2 meeting room. The meeting room will change based on availability
