Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Denny's Restaurant 1600 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City,

If you do not immediately see us then tell the Denny's staff that you are here for the Kansas City Video Game Developers Meetup group.

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!

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 6:00:00 PM Stowers Institute 1000 E 50th St, Kansas City,

Eric Poe will share about recent PHP community news. Then John Kary will guide us in a holiday-themed group programming exercise following AdventOfCode.com! No programming experience or laptop required to participate. Promise! Just your brain and problem solving skills.

https://adventofcode.com/2019/about

Advent of Code is an Advent calendar of small programming puzzles for any skill set and skill level using any programming language. You don't need a computer science background to participate - just a little programming knowledge and some problem solving skills will get you pretty far. Nor do you need a fancy computer; every problem has a solution that completes in at most 15 seconds on ten-year-old hardware.

Light refreshments will be provided.

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 - Advent of Code (mob programming). Bring a laptop if you'd like to share your solutions in the language of your choice.

If you are interested in speaking or would like to suggest a future topic please suggest one: (http://www.meetup.com/kcphpug/suggestion/)

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

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

Hello, all!  Totally belated update on topic and location!

Tonight's meeting will be at the Corinth Branch of the Johnson County Library, at 8100 Mission Rd in Prairie Village.

We're going to try something a little different this month. Do you have questions that you're not comfortable asking an expert? Do you just want to share the frustration of a requirement or vulnerability without hearing an over-simplified solution to your problem? Come and talk about it at AppSec Anonymous.

Topic:
The topic for the November meeting is authentication. We can discuss if passwords are really the devil, how much MFA is going to solve all the problems, or anything causing you to lose sleep. There should be plenty of open ears from folks struggling with similar requirements and red tape.

We'll have snacks and drinks, sponsored by OWASP!
Note that due to the holidays, there will not be a December meeting!

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 6:00:00 PM Stowers Institute 1000 E 50th St, Kansas City,

Eric Poe will share about recent PHP community news. Then John Kary will guide us in a holiday-themed group programming exercise following AdventOfCode.com! No programming experience or laptop required to participate. Promise! Just your brain and problem solving skills.

https://adventofcode.com/2019/about

Advent of Code is an Advent calendar of small programming puzzles for any skill set and skill level using any programming language. You don't need a computer science background to participate - just a little programming knowledge and some problem solving skills will get you pretty far. Nor do you need a fancy computer; every problem has a solution that completes in at most 15 seconds on ten-year-old hardware.

Light refreshments will be provided.

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 - Advent of Code (mob programming). Bring a laptop if you'd like to share your solutions in the language of your choice.

If you are interested in speaking or would like to suggest a future topic please suggest one: (http://www.meetup.com/kcphpug/suggestion/)

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
