Format: Mingling starts at 5:00 pm; book discussion around 5:15p, and everyone will be free to go (or keep mingling!) at 6:00p so you can get home to families and dinner all the other things that make for a well balanced life. We will meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month through the next year and will pick out next month's book at the conclusion of each Readtable.

Questions? Let us know. Otherwise we'll see you there!

(Aaaaand hopefully also at KC Roundtable at the Eggtc. on Main every 1st and 3rd Thursdays at 7:30am!)

In the last decade there have been dozens of very good JavaScript libraries and frameworks dedicated to building the web. We've been so blessed, but cursed as well. Most of us have experienced the fatigue of change and "innovation". Lately we've seen that churn calm down, at least on the front-end. React, Vue, and Angular are pretty much the only viable options. However, the philosophies differ considerably. React is open, allowing you to create a customized environment. Angular takes some of that away, but gives you a stronger sense of consistency. As someone who's used both, I'll give you the strengths (and headaches) of each. Maybe I'll sway an Angular developer to consider React or even vice versa!

Speaker: Richard Davenport
Bio: Richard is an open web junky. He builds things with JavaScript: web apps, mobile apps, backend-services, cloud native, the next big thing. He's worked in corporate America building applications and services in .NET and Angular. He's also worked under some of the greatest Agile coaches in KC and is passionate about pragmatic development processes. Currently working at Bottomline with a focus on React.

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!

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

The .NET renaissance is underway. .NET devs like you now have access to a growing community of open source projects that support resilient cloud-native web applications.

Abstract
So, you have an amazing Java application supported by the awesome distributed database Apache Cassandra providing a powerful application for your users. Sure, your on-prem deployment was working great... but then you went viral! Now you have decided to leverage the power of the cloud to burst your database in a hybrid-cloud fashion. You also decide to go full multi-cloud because who wants to be locked into a single vendor? How does one go about doing this? David Gilardi will demonstrate live how to expand an Apache Cassandra cluster into multiple cloud vendors using the KillrVideo Java reference application (https://killrvideo.github.io). Now you're ready to go viral and SCALE!

Bio
David Gilardi (@SonicDMG) is a Developer Advocate at DataStax who is a total nerd for distributed databases. He has over 20 years of relevant experience in programming, database administration, cloud, server/network monitoring, and analytics.

KC's premier book club for entrepreneurs is back again!

We wanted to do January differently as we expect you may already be getting started on a book that you wanted to get your year started off with. So, read that book and come share your takeaways with the KC Readtable crew!

Even if you don't have a chance to read the (whole) book, you're welcome to come to join in the conversation, pick up key elements from your book, brainstorm, chat about other good books and podcasts, and meet other entrepreneurs.

Format: Mingling starts at 5:00 pm; book discussion around 5:15p, and everyone will be free to go (or keep mingling!) at 6:00p so you can get home to families and dinner all the other things that make for a well balanced life. We will meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month through the next year and will pick out next month's book at the conclusion of each Readtable.

Questions? Let us know. Otherwise we'll see you there!

(Aaaaand hopefully also at KC Roundtable at the Eggtc. on Main every 1st and 3rd Thursdays at 7:30am!)

Past books: Atomic Habits by James Clear, WTF? What's the Future by Tim O'Reilly, Predictably Irrational by Dr. Dan Ariely, The Go Giver Influencer by Bob Burg, Measure What Matters by John Doerr, Start with Why by Simon Sinek, etc.

Cheers!

From your KC Roundtable Organizers

In the last decade there have been dozens of very good JavaScript libraries and frameworks dedicated to building the web. We've been so blessed, but cursed as well. Most of us have experienced the fatigue of change and "innovation". Lately we've seen that churn calm down, at least on the front-end. React, Vue, and Angular are pretty much the only viable options. However, the philosophies differ considerably. React is open, allowing you to create a customized environment. Angular takes some of that away, but gives you a stronger sense of consistency. As someone who's used both, I'll give you the strengths (and headaches) of each. Maybe I'll sway an Angular developer to consider React or even vice versa!

Speaker: Richard Davenport
Bio: Richard is an open web junky. He builds things with JavaScript: web apps, mobile apps, backend-services, cloud native, the next big thing. He's worked in corporate America building applications and services in .NET and Angular. He's also worked under some of the greatest Agile coaches in KC and is passionate about pragmatic development processes. Currently working at Bottomline with a focus on React.

Custom Dynamic Forms and Controls:
Almost all web apps require forms and fields, and some apps are almost all forms and fields. As the number and types of fields increase, these forms can become unmanageable. Configurable dynamic form libraries are a great alternative to hard coding, but they often don't cover all the needs of our apps. It could be that they are missing date-range pickers, min-max inputs, range sliders, etc. Or maybe they don't offer fine control over validation or styling.
In this talk, we will see how to create our own dynamic forms and custom fields with Angular Forms Module and Material.

Javascript / Not Javascript:
If you have been using Typescript for a while you may have missed out on some of the new features in Javascript. Language features you thought were unique to Typescript may be available in Javascript as well. So just how different are these two today? Let's test your knowledge of the Javascript and Typescript by looking at code snippets and determining if it is Javascript or Not Javascript.
