Adaptive User Interfaces with Xamarin.Forms

Let's take Xamarin.Forms beyond Hello World and explore how to create apps that adapt to your users devices in the real-world. As an app developer, you don't want your apps to just look great in portrait or landscape on a phone, you want to provide a larger display experience option. In this session we will build an app that spans platforms and device types, giving users a rich experience , regardless of platform or form factor. Stop making ugly one-layout-fits-all UI apps, and start making single code-base apps your users love! Everybody wins!

Hey everyone! It's that time again! We are having the next three meetups at the CoLab @ Johnson County Community College. They have been very generous. One of the main goals we have for 2018 is to start having "split" meetups, where half the group can do the networking, demoing, hanging out, and whatever have you, while the other half of the group deep dives on specific skills and methodologies in Unity and Unreal. We want to not only be the community for VR/AR but we also want to be an ongoing resource for technical knowledge and training. The technical track in this meetup starts with the BP_MotionController pawn in Unreal, and how to get a VR app up and running. From there we will kinda go where the work and questions take us! Very excited to see everyone there next Tuesday!

Kyle and I have talked about forming teams, but please, be prepared to make videos. As complicated (bringing a studio worth of stuff) or as simple (using your phone!) as you want!

When you need to record audio, we will have a way to quiet the set.

Abstract:
GraphQL has proven to be a viable technology since its inception at Facebook, but it has yet to go truly mainstream. With the advent of hosted GraphQL platforms like AWS AppSync, this no longer must be the case. GraphQL is a protocol and toolset for querying your data in a structured way. The AppSync platform enables easy management of GraphQL instances on AWS. In this session, we start with a brief introduction to GraphQL and how it can change the way you think about your data. Then we will look at how AppSync allows you to get up and running with your own GraphQL endpoint. This simple demo will show how hosting a GraphQL instance on AWS gives you a flexible, self-documenting API that can serve as an efficient alternative to RESTful web services. No experience with GraphQL or AWS is necessary, but a general understanding of REST and APIs in general is a plus.

Monday, May 21, 2018 at 6:00:00 PM The District Pour House & Kitchen 7122 Wornall Road, Kansas City, MO

Come join us to play "Never Ever Would I... Examining Your Agile Non-negotiables!"

NEVER would I EVER do what? What do you believe you would NEVER do in the world of agile? What do you think must ALWAYS be done? Words like NEVER, ALWAYS, MUST, and SHOULD mark the border of our beliefs and biases. As agile coaches and mentors, our professional beliefs and biases may collide with others, and sometimes we don't even realize what's happening until it's too late. We can't help our clients get beyond the limits of their beliefs and biases unless we're aware of our own.

Let's challenge our personal collections of agile never's, always, musts and should's. In other words – join us for an interactive session where we will play with our our agile non-negotiables. Using a new agile game adapted from the popular game "Never Would I Ever" – we will tap into the diversity of experience and beliefs of participants to examine circumstances where a NEVER might become an experiment in MAYBE. Along the way, we'll examine the "why" behind our own deeply held agile beliefs and practice the art of humble inquiry (the gentle art of asking) to better understand the perspective of others.

Never would you ever want to miss this session!

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!
