SMCKC October Breakfast: The Power of One

October 4, 2019 | 7:30AM - 9:00AM

The Power of One: Building a Digial Presence and Worldwide Fan Base as a Solo-preneur.

Before becoming the WWE's artist-in-residence, Rob Schamberger had to build his creative brand and business from the groumd up. During this conversation, moderated by Katy Schamberger, Rob will share how he built a comprehensive digital brand using social media, video, and an e-newsletter, all while juggling an ever-growing workload of convention and live appearances, business management and, of course, creating art. You'll take away insight and actionable tips, including:
  • How to manage a multi-faceted digital presence as a solo-preneur or small team
  • Identifying your voice and brand
  • When to add specific marketing elements to your larger strategy (and lessons on dealing with trolls)
  • How to leverage the power and visibility of a global brand while maintaining and cultivating your own brand and identity

Our Evening Meeting Format

We love Web Development and all things PHP. Our meetings are often a little free-formed, but we shoot for this schedule:

6:00pm - Mingling / Meet and Greet

6:15pm - Lightning Talk:
* Last Month in PHP

6:30pm - Hacktoberfest talk and workshop. Bring a laptop!

All Developers and Non-Developers Welcome!

We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious and just starting out, dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, Laravel, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla; our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.

Park in any visitor space in the parking garage and enter the main building from the west. Follow the signs for PHP User Group and turn right at the security desk. Click here for event

In 1981 the skywalk at the Hyatt Regency collapsed killing 114 people. As a result of the investigation many of the engineers on that project lost their PE licenses. With software becoming an ever more pervasive aspect of our lives, very real questions are rising about the qualifications one should have before writing medical device software or ensuring the security of systems containing sensitive financial data.

Specifically: Should software developers be required to be certified like engineers?

Join the KC Mobile Developers user group for what promises to be a very lively and interesting debate and discussion! Arguing in favor of the position that developers should be certified will be Alfonso Guerra; arguing the negative will be Dianna Kuhlman. After opening statements, rebuttal, and counter-rebuttal, the debaters will answer questions from those attending before the debate concludes and open conversation follows.

DevOpsDays is a conference for not only Developers and System/Operations Engineers, but everyone across the spectrum involved in creating or managing technical solutions in any industry. We are returning as alumni to last year’s event location: Plexpod: Westport Commons.

This conference is hosted by DevOpsKC, make sure to checkout our monthly meetup and our website.
Learning
At DevOpsDays we discuss the culture and tools that can make organizations run better, deliver faster, and improve quality. This year, we have a fantastic lineup of over 30 speakers and facilitators from around the country. There are 10 interactive workshops that will let you dive deeper into the domain of your choice. With a mix of in-depth talks, tech-focused workshops, and laser-focused Ignite talks, you are sure to learn something new!
Sharing
We’ve heightened focus on Open Spaces, a DevOpsDays staple, by removing conflicts from the schedule to ensure everyone can participate. These round-table discussions ensure attendees can contribute to topics in small discussions with other passionate collaborators. Space to break out and share success and failure, get feedback on creative solutions, and ask for help solving real-world problems, provides an immeasurable opportunity to grow yourself, and ultimately, your tech teams back at work.

Suzanne Wolff and Heather Freund from Landajob will be our guests in October to help you supercharge your resume and portfolio. They will offer a presentation about do's and dont's in this business. What exactly are you looking for? What do clients want? What impresses them? Graphics jobs have changed so much over the years; what is needed in the current climate? After the presentation they will answer your questions and even listen to your horror stories about other recruiters.

People will be encouraged to bring their updated resume and links to Behance -- or their laptop with portfolio -- to visit with Landajob. It doesn't mean you're looking for a job, but really...aren't we always?

Buck and John will bring equipment to do some LinkedIn/social profile head shots. We did this a few years ago at a KCDesignCore meeting and it was highly successful.

Come enjoy a relaxing, network-with-each-other evening!

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Monday, October 7, 2019 at 6:00:00 PM WeWork 1828 Walnut St 3rd Floor, Kansas City, mo

Description:

Computer Vision applications typically employ numerical analysis that is very similar to and in some cases borrows from Data Science topics - algorithms such as RANSAC for point detection in an image for instance. This discussion will cover the combination of computer vision, pattern recognition and data science into an image processing pipeline that is designed to help deter fraudulent account access. In particular this pipeline acts as a "weak classifier" among an ensemble of classifiers that are used to determine whether or not an image is valid or whether it is likely to be fraudulent.

Presenter:

Greg Storm

Most recently Greg has been involved with a couple of different Kansas City startups where has helped them research new products, primarily using their data. Before that he had enjoyed a career working with large corporate transaction systems and databases. When he isn't working with data he is usually watching college football.

This meetup is hosted by Bellwethr at WeWork. Be sure to arrive early to be able to find parking and walk to the meetup space.

All Developers and Non-Developers Welcome!

We understand Web Developers often come from all backgrounds, and many work in more languages than PHP. Whether you're curious and just starting out, dabble in PHP on the weekends, write custom PHP on a daily basis, work in a framework like Symfony, Zend Framework, Silex, Slim, Laravel, CakePHP or customize CMS products like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla; our goal is that you will find something new, useful and thought provoking.

Park in any visitor space in the parking garage and enter the main building from the west. Follow the signs for PHP User Group and turn right at the security desk. Click here for event

Tuesday, October 1, 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!

Join us for the September-in-October Kubernetes and Cloud Native Kansas City MeetUp!

During this meetup, you will learn:

• How to keep state out of your microservices by storing it in an always-on, ACID-Compliant SQL database.

• How to run a database in the same K8s cluster as your microservices and have it auto-recover itself the same way your apps do.

• How to run a single database cluster that can run on-prem and across multiple clouds to create a resilient cluster which avoids lock-in.

Get a peek into the architecture for this open-source database and learn how to set it up in your own labs.

Food and drinks provided!
