Tuesday, April 2, 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!

Title: AWS Lambda in Ruby
Speaker: Shashank Daté
Synopsis: In this talk I wish to cover the notion of a serverless "AWS Lambda" and how it can implemented using Ruby, which now has native support. I will demo a simple "Hello World" example and the progressively refine it to use some more advanced features like API gateway and Step Functions. It will be an interactive session and attendees will be able to drive the examples in a direction most desired. No knowledge of AWS is expected and an intermediate understanding of Ruby will be helpful.

Doors will open at 6:00 and the meeting will start at 6:30.

Artisan Technology Group, which recently merged with BalancePoint, will be providing pizza and pop.

We have Slack signup integrated into http://kcruby.org

Civic Heroes of all types welcome! This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

Bring a laptop: If you intend on getting some hands-on hacking done (it's ok if you can't but it definitely helps to have one).

If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about, please let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself. We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.
