Topic Details: In this Chapter meeting, Ian will lead discussion on modern approaches to endpoint protection.  Malware, phishing, so called “targeted attacks” – they all focus on users and on their endpoints.  So how can organizations reduce their endpoint risk and exposure?  The market is rife with terms like Machine Learning and AI, but what value do they add, really?  How do you measure success of an endpoint security program?    Ian will also be happy to answer questions on the mysterious life of an Industry Analyst, explain how markets are analyzed, and if anyone is brave enough to ask( *gasp*), he’ll talk about whether it really is a pay-for-play industry.

Facilitator:  Ian has nearly two decades of experience in operational IT and security and risk planning for enterprises, service providers and software vendors. He is a recognized leader for his ability to help organizations scale their security programs and bring products to market.  Prior to joining Endgame, Ian was Gartner’s lead analyst for endpoint protection and EDR, and lead author on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms. During his tenure, Ian specialized in research focused on assessing the impact of emerging technologies for security operations, breach detection and incident response.  You can find him online in most places as @ianmcshane.

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 5:30:00 PM VeriShip 8880 Ward Pkwy #300, Kansas City, MO

Jenny Tarwater is bringing the best of the best games home to Kansas City. The Agile Games Conference is an annual event hosted by Agile New England that provides an immersive exploration of some of the more interesting, playful, and fun concepts behind Agile Software Development. We all acknowledge that work is important, but shouldn't we be able to have fun while doing it?

Agile games are activities focused on teaching, demonstrating, and improving Agile and organizational effectiveness using game theory. Using games, we can model complex or time-consuming processes and systems, examine why they work (or don't work), look for improvements, and teach others how to benefit from them. Games can model just the core of a process or model, leaving out unimportant factors. They can involve collaboration, brainstorming, comparing variants, and of course retrospectives.

Plan on an immersive experience, come play!

Tuesday, April 30, 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!

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 6:00:00 PM Keyhole Software 8900 State Line Rd, Leawood, KS

Presented By: Mat Warger

Level: Introductory/Overview - those new to GraphQL or AWS AppSync

Description: GraphQL has proven to be a viable technology since its inception at Facebook, but is now going mainstream. It is a specification and toolset for querying your data in a structured way. But - how do you get started? In this session, you will get a soft introduction to GraphQL and see how it can change the way you think about your data. Using AppSync on AWS, you can get up and running with a GraphQL endpoint quickly and easily. You will see how it provides 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.

Agenda: Some basic lecture, followed by a demo-heavy walkthrough of the service and associated tools. By the end of the presentation, we'll have a GraphQL API built that authorizes queries based on user permissions, interacts with multiple data sources, and communicates with a sample application.

Food and networking at 6. Presentation to start close to 6:30.

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.

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

CERNER CORPORATION

Speaker: Aaron Gershman, Sr. Software Engineer

Aaron Gershman is a software engineer on the GroundWorks team at Cerner. He hacks on Spring Boot, bash, and yaml. Aaron works with fascinating technologies like "BOSH", "Kubernetes", and "Microsoft Outlook". Aaron has 4 Dell R710s in a homelab acting as a space heater.

Abstract:

As a CF admin, manually managing orgs and memory quotas is time-consuming, error-prone, and requires JIRAs. As a developer, filling out JIRAs sucks. Cf-Mgmt is multi-foundation management as code. It defines your orgs, spaces, quotas, permissions, and more, all with simple YAML. It inverts responsibility back to developers with a self-service, git-backed, pull-request workflow. It offers traceability, transparency, and reproducibility. We'll cover why you should use CF-Mgmt, practical advice, problems we've faced with it, and how we intend to solve them. Next time when a team asks "How do I get a new CF space?", tell them "Open a pull request".
