Monday, July 29, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Kansas City Public Library: Plaza Branch 4801 Main St, Kansas City, MO

This month, we'll discuss four problems selected from HackerRank, plus two more open-ended front-end development challenges.

This will be a casual meeting. You don't need to have worked on all - or any! - of the challenges before coming. Those of us who have finished solutions can discuss the approaches we took and what we learned along the way, and those who are still working are welcome to talk through any difficulties you're encountering.

Here are the HackerRank problems:
- BotClean: https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/botclean
- Two Characters: https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/two-characters/problem
- Common Child: https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/common-child/problem
- Array Manipulation: https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/crush

Here are the front-end challenges. Take these in any direction you want - the goal is to learn something and perhaps build something that will be fun to show the group. There are no right or wrong answers.
- Pointer aware page: https://codier.io/challenge/S1gWX3z1E
- Pure CSS Particle Animation: https://codier.io/challenge/SJHHNMDrQ

We'll be in the room that says "Large Meeting Room" on the door. If you have trouble finding it, ask a librarian to direct you to the large meeting room. Click here for event

MARKETING WITH WORDPRESS Series

• Think You Don't Need Email Marketing? Think Again •

If you think email marketing is wrong for your business, you might want to think again. Over 205 billion emails are sent every day. Social Media is important, but emails still are king. Building your email list to nurture prospects and customers so you stay top of mind when they are ready to buy your product or service is critical.

Janet Elie will share the top 5 compelling reasons why you should be using a professional email marketing service to promote your business. Jenet will also show you the magic of integrating your email list to your WordPress website. By the end of this session you will not want to "Resist the List" - the email list.

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!

We'll be giving away some free devices, so make sure you're there early!

The nature of application delivery now spans public and private clouds and edge computing, while the end clients accessing these applications are people and machines. Securing these diverse environments while maintaining productivity and minimizing errors is challenging, to say the least. The classic models of arranging everything inside a perimeter, whether this is a private DC or a virtual private cloud (VPC), and providing access over a VPN are falling apart under the weight of complexity and inadequacy.

In this talk we will dive into an identity based model for providing access to users, whether it is to Web-type applications over REST APIs, or infrastructure itself through SSH and RDP. Starting from the principals of an OAUTH/OIDC infrastructure, we will discuss how the concepts can be extended to cover all forms of remote access without the overhead of VPNs and bastion hosts and while maintaining a zero trust security posture. Some of the use cases of this approach include:
- Privileged access management (SSH or RDP access to VMs)
- Authorization for web-services
- User specific access to Cloud Provider resources (i.e. AWS S3 buckets) while maintaining audit trails.

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

Our Saturday meetings are free-formed. Attendees bring up topics that interest them or that they want feedback on. Attendees are welcome to participate or just kick back and soak in the discussions. There are also no dumb questions! If you're just starting out this is a great opportunity to ask questions.

The meeting structure usually follows this format:

* Introductions / meet and greet new members
* Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question; discussing any new happenings that interest the group
* Get help setting up your development environment, looking at code, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)

All levels welcome!

Maybe you have been using using PHP for a week or even a decade--we all have things to learn and share. If you enjoy working with PHP, or want to learn more about it this meeting is for you.

Get Involved

If you're looking for a presentation-focused event with talks and demos, check out our weeknight meetups. We would also love to have you present! Please contact an organizer through Meetup or talk after a meeting to tell us more about your topic.

Topic: 12 Ways to Hack 2FA

Everyone knows that multi-factor authentication (MFA) is more secure than a simple login name and password, but too many people think that MFA is a perfect, unhackable solution. It isn't! I can send you a regular phish email and completely take control of your account even if you use a super-dooper MFA token or smartphone app. Attend this webinar and learn the 12+ ways hackers can and do get around your favorite MFA solution. The webinar will include a (pre-filmed) hacking demo by KnowBe4's Chief Hacking Officer, Kevin Mitnick, and real-life successful examples of every attack type. It will end by telling you how to better defend your MFA solution so that you get maximum benefit and security.

Speaker: Roger A. Grimes
Roger is Data-Driven Defense Evangelist for KnowBe4, Inc., he is a 30-year computer security consultant, instructor, holder of dozens of computer certifications, and author of 10 books and over 1,000 magazine articles on computer security.

• What we'll do
Casual discussions about intersectional feminism over various topics. Conversations about how to succeed in life, work and relationships while advocating for yourself and empowering the women around you.

• What to bring
An open mind and willingness to share your experience, ask questions and potentially be vulnerable. If you have additional topics you'd like to discuss, please don't hesitate to reach out or bring them up in the course of conversation.

• Important to know
These conversations aren't about subscribing to a certain set of answers, but instead, they're about having honest, organic discussions that help us do and be better every day.

We'll plan to be at the large pub table on the second floor. Subject to change depending on number of attendees, availability and weather. Click here for event

Saturday Meeting Format

Our Saturday meetings are free-formed. Attendees bring up topics that interest them or that they want feedback on. Attendees are welcome to participate or just kick back and soak in the discussions. There are also no dumb questions! If you're just starting out this is a great opportunity to ask questions.

The meeting structure usually follows this format:

* Introductions / meet and greet new members
* Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question; discussing any new happenings that interest the group
* Get help setting up your development environment, looking at code, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)

All levels welcome!

Maybe you have been using using PHP for a week or even a decade--we all have things to learn and share. If you enjoy working with PHP, or want to learn more about it this meeting is for you.

Get Involved

If you're looking for a presentation-focused event with talks and demos, check out our weeknight meetups. We would also love to have you present! Please contact an organizer through Meetup or talk after a meeting to tell us more about your topic.

Hopefully the big room in back--look for the group with laptops Click here for event
