There are different ways to develop Android Applications, but the primary ones for a while were Java and Xamarin. In the past few years, Kotlin has taken a stride as the new kid in town. Google went as far as making it a primary language for Android. In this Showdown, we will take a look at these three languages for creating Android Application and see if Kotlin can reign.

He has primarily worked in Java, but has worked on commercial applications in Kotlin and Xamarin. Now as an instructor he teaches fundamentals of different programming languages.

When approaching a major system or application restructure there are many skills and practices, both soft and hard, that are often forgotten or ignored. These range from scope control, technical practices to people and teams. Each one of these, if not effectively managed, can lead to prolonged timelines and unhappy stakeholders. In this talk, we will discuss lessons learnt by myself during a recent refactoring project as well as from my various past experiences. Specifically, we will dive into the planning needed before starting such a project as well as functional and performance testing and deployment techniques. We will also discuss how to work through design considerations in scenarios where the original creators might not be available to consult, including strategies to keep the entire team in the loop. My main desire is to shine a light on just a few of the lessons I have learned through my own struggles and failures to help those that come after to avoid making the same mistakes I made during my own conquests.

About the Speaker:
I grew up as a military child, bouncing across the country until I landed at Ft. Leavenworth for High School where I first dove into networking and desktop system configuration. From there I attended DeVry University to study electronics engineering where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2013. Since then my career has bounced from circuit board design and assembly to cloud systems architecture to management of a team of skilled software engineers. I currently live in Belton, Missouri with my wife and two year old son. Besides tech I enjoy anime, leather working and teaching Sunday School at my local church.

Hello! After not finding anything Rust-related on meetup within 100 miles of KC, I decided to start something.

I don't have a itinerary, but I do have a few experiences to kick-start conversations. In my free time, I have written some small libraries, targeted WebAssembly, made two tiny contributions to the Rust compiler and another compiler written in Rust.

Anyone from the range of "just curious" to "core contributor" is welcome.

We'll either find a table on the main level, or upstairs. Click here for event

If you do not immediately see us then tell the Denny's staff that you are here for the Kansas City Video Game Developers Meetup group.

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!

NEED YOUR INPUT!

Share any questions you have about the WordPress loop here in the comments. Yes, even if you're a newbie!

--------------

About this session

We will get into how to use the WP_Query (The Loop) class and how to build your own queries. Custom queries can be used to build custom dynamic pages with any post type, custom REST API endpoints to feed data to web apps, or a great many other purposes. The Loop is quite literally one of the biggest driving pieces of WordPress, and can be tricked out to do all kinds of cool stuff. Mass creating, editing, or deleting of any post type? How about building your own infinite scroll of a custom post type? Your imagination is the limit.

ROB RUIZ

Approaching the web with a strong and extensive background in many kinds of design, Rob Ruiz has been doing web design/development for over 15 years now and a WordPress user for since 2011. He's been developing custom plugins/themes since 2014. Rob's focus on market strategy, user experience, and user interface design gives him a unique edge in modern web development. Although he specializes in WordPress, his knowledge on modern HTML, CSS, Javascript, JS frameworks also makes him a senior level Front-end Developer

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Denny's Restaurant 1600 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City,

If you do not immediately see us then tell the Denny's staff that you are here for the Kansas City Video Game Developers Meetup group.

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!

NEED YOUR INPUT!

Share any questions you have about the WordPress loop here in the comments. Yes, even if you're a newbie!

--------------

About this session

We will get into how to use the WP_Query (The Loop) class and how to build your own queries. Custom queries can be used to build custom dynamic pages with any post type, custom REST API endpoints to feed data to web apps, or a great many other purposes. The Loop is quite literally one of the biggest driving pieces of WordPress, and can be tricked out to do all kinds of cool stuff. Mass creating, editing, or deleting of any post type? How about building your own infinite scroll of a custom post type? Your imagination is the limit.
