Tuesday, July 9, 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, July 9, 2019 at 10:00:00 AM Central Resource Library 9875 W 87th St , Overland Park, KS

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

We are 154 members STRONG and I can't help but think it is because there is a lot of bad design out there and we noticed. This months meeting will be about how to give feedback when you experience poor design. Can you think of examples of poor design at your workplace? Do you want to brainstorm ideas and potential solutions. Come to the meeting with examples and we will
1. Identify the problem
2. Create viable solutions (via discussion)
3. Explore effective and concise communication (would not want managers to think you were doing UX on the job)

Note this months meeting is at Afterwords Tavern and Shelves (downtown KC) where you can have a snack and a drink to fuel your creativity.

Please RSVP ASAP as seating is limited.

Just in time for Independence Day! Build your own pneumatic launch station to send paper rockets soaring hundreds of feet!

The launch station uses an electric valve and pressurized air to launch rockets as high as you choose.

The Mission Control box contains a safety toggle switch, ARM indicator and launch button and provides wired control of the launch platform. This launch platform is built around your very own AC powered 3 gallon air compressor with gauges and regulator for adjusting launch height.

Once filled, the 3 gallon tank can provide many launches before being recharged in about 1 minute from any outlet. Connect an extension cord for unlimited launching!

The paper rockets are easy to make and nearly free if you use junk mail! Launch them many times, as a safe and cheap replacement for fireworks.

Paint and personalize your launch station with decals and you will be the envy of every park outing!

Ok, this class is slightly more expensive than most of our youth classes, but we promise you are going to love this gadget for years to come. This has been a hit at every outdoor event with children for the past 8 years. Don't miss out on this annual build. Class price is per rocket launcher, so young build assistants are welcome to join a parent for this class.

Leawood, KS 66211
Driving Directions
Dear Rob,

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals at Hereford House in Leawood on June 27, 2019.

Topic/ Presentation Overview:  MITRE ATT&CK

The MITRE ATT&CK framework is a very effective tool for "adversary emulation", cataloging how adversaries behave, what they're trying to do, and the techniques used to accomplish their means. Moreover, the framework aims to provide a common language and vocabulary for practitioners, vendors, and all parties working to understand common threat actors and techniques.

In November 2018, MITRE evaluated a subset of techniques in an open-test environment, working with vendors to analyze their detection capabilities against these common techniques. With the results of this first evaluation now published, many are trying to make sense of results to understand the efficacy of different solutions in the marketplace today.

Speaker:  John Morton

John Morton is a Senior Sales Engineer at Cybereason. Having been on both sides of the fence, now as a solutions provider and previously as a practitioner for the US Navy & Federal government, John is a veteran in merging day-to-day cybersecurity efforts - always protecting the enterprise and a keen knack for actively hunting for the threat.

Please RSVP so that we know how many snacks & drinks to bring.

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.
