Speaker: Mat Warger

Bio:
Mat Warger is a senior software consultant with Keyhole Software in Kansas City. He enjoys learning new concepts and has leveraged this curiosity in positions ranging from startups to the enterprise over the past decade. He can be found chasing the latest and (sometimes) greatest in a wide range of languages and platforms, including React, GraphQL, and the cloud. Find him on twitter @mwarger.

Abstract:
Most recent javascript frameworks bring a solid component model to modern web development, but how can you guarantee that your components work correctly? In this session, you learn how the features of Typescript can be leveraged to bring clarity and dependability when constructing components with React. Using Typescript can help to catch errors early in the development life-cycle. GraphQL and its type system can ensure confidence in your components while fetching remote data. This comprehensive approach ensures that your components behave as you expect, and allows you to eliminate run-time errors. Learn how using types can keep your users happy!

Join Code for KC to develop tech for good! 

Do you have a community-oriented idea that might benefit from a tech solution? Do you like to lend your skills to help people bring their ideas to life? Then HackKC is for you—yes, you! Anyone can participate, and you don’t have to be an expert in technology.
This FREE event brings together people with the passion for doing good to collaborate in developing technology solutions that help others. Nonprofit professionals, urbanists, civic hackers, government staff, developers, designers, project managers, community organizers and more are welcomed!
We want to address real problems in our community, such as environmental issues, transportation problems, and many more using open source coding networks. Our projects are created around the idea that there are real issues in our community that can have a technological solution. Through collaboration and networking we create a community-based solution and follow through with a team of coders, designers, writers (and more!) over the next six months or more to implement that solution.
The fun doesn't stop there either! Projects continue well after the hackathon until they are complete. Some apps from previous years have stayed on board for years!

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 will be joining up with Google Developers Group (GDGKC) and KC Mobile Developers to put on Lightning Talks!

Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 7:00:00 PM Google Fiber Space Lounge 1814 Westport Road, Kansas City, MO

Learn something new recently? Started using a new tool?

Join KC Mobile Devs, JavaScript KC, and GDG Kansas City for a night of lightning talks.

What's a lightning talk?
Lightning talks are designed to be short presentations between five and ten minutes long, but are usually capped at five minutes. Talks are arranged one after the other during the sessions. Lightning talks are brief which requires the speaker to make their point clearly and rid the presentation of non-critical information. This causes the audience to be more attentive to the speaker and gain a broader array of knowledge from the presentations given.
-Wikipedia

Attendees interested in presenting can signup to give a short, 5 minute talk on any topic they want (preferably technology-related please). Participants will have the opportunity to win prizes. This is meant to be a fun, light competition. It won't be an intense, heavily structured point system. Please let us know if you interested in speaking by filling out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/UwcSjYVjTpxdDHS22

Not interested in speaking? No problem! Other attendees can learn about multiple about multiple topics.

Schedule:
6:30 - Doors open for networking and food
7:00 - Introduction
7:10 - Lightning talks
8:00 - End of talks and giveaways

Food and beverages will be provided.
