UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, THIS MEETING WILL BE HELD ONLINE WITH DISCORD: https://discord.gg/wmFHB7y

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 online for the next book we will be reading in the KC Tech Book Club! We will be reading The DevOps Handbook by Gene Kim et al. This is the follow up to the previous book we read, The Phoenix Project, which kind of gives a high-level outline of the lessons learned from that book.

Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1942788002/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Feel free to still come if you haven't read the book or just read parts of it or read it years ago and can't remember anything about it. It will be a very laid-back discussion format.

Hello Maker,

Register Here -> https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8937609372723938316?source=Meetup

H2O Driverless AI makes data scientists more productive by automating some of the most challenging and productive tasks in applied machine learning such as feature engineering, model selection, model tuning and ensembling, as well as model interpretability and production deployment. Driverless AI turns Kaggle-winning grandmaster recipes into production-ready code (Java and C++), and is specifically designed to avoid common mistakes such as under- or overfitting, data leakage or improper model validation, which are some of the hardest challenges in data science. Domain experts and advanced data scientists can write their own recipes and seamlessly extend Driverless AI with their favorite tools from the rich ecosystem of open-source data science and machine learning libraries.

Join us on Tuesday, July 9th at 1:00 PM CDT, to hear from Arno Candel, CTO at H2O.ai and Dan Darnell, VP of Product Marketing at H2O.ai, as they walk you through the latest innovations available in H2O Driverless AI 1.9.0.

This meetup gives an overview of the new features in H2O Driverless AI 1.9.0, including:
- Time-Series techniques for modeling trends including epidemic SEIRD model
- Insurance use case modeling with ZeroInflated models
- Computer Vision with TensorFlow Deep Learning models
- Language models with PyTorch BERT Deep Learning models
- Preview of Collaboration, Model Storage and Model Ops, coming in 2.0 LTS

We will provide live demonstrations on example use cases to show the benefits of these new capabilities.

How we did it: Running Microsoft Teams Live Events as a Conference

Microsoft 365 Virtual Marathon was the largest community event ever attempted with over 400 sessions running for 36 hours in 7 languages with speakers from 44 countries. We'll demonstrate how we delivered the best conference ever using Microsoft Teams as a conference platform.

Presented by Joel Oleson, Galen Keene, and Ryan Schouten

Joel Oleson is widely recognized as one of the world's most connected Office 365 and SharePoint Community leaders. Joel was a key player prior to the launch of Microsoft's Collaboration products from the beginning as the first dedicated SharePoint Admin for Microsoft internal deployments of Tahoe and Office Web Server, and later as Architect for the first version of SharePoint Online. He would act as voice of the product to IT as Senior Technical Product Manager with the 2007 release. After about 10 years working on Microsoft campus in a variety of different roles Joel left Microsoft to greater connect with the global community. His passion was helping kick start communities all over the world. Collaboration, Intranets, Portals and Business Applications took on a new meaning as he would get involved with many of the largest organizations in the world. In his pursuits he's visited over 165 UN countries and continues to coach and mentor community leaders across the globe. Joel is currently at Perficient as Director in the Microsoft National Practice.

Galen Keene has been working in IT for 19 years in various roles, from network administration to solution architect. He has worked with SharePoint since 2004 in many industries, including biotech, defense, education, finance, and construction. Galen is a managing partner and collaboration architect for Butterfly Technologies, a consulting company with expertise in Azure, Office 365, and SharePoint.

Ryan Schouten has been working with SharePoint since December of 2006. He has had experience with all versions of SharePoint from 2003 to 2013 Ryan is a Microsoft Certified Trainer and has several certifications from Microsoft from SharePoint 2010-2013 and Office 365. Before starting on SharePoint development Ryan was an experienced ASP.Net developer specializing in server and client side interactions. This experience made transitioning to SharePoint a lot easier.Ryan loves being a developer and a speaker. Combining these two joys allows Ryan to do what he loves and sharing it with others. He loves working with SharePoint and spending time with his kids, not necessarily in that order. Ryan also loves the SharePoint Community and connecting with people.

About KC 0365 User Group:

This user group is designed for KC professionals who work with Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint to network and learn from each other. Meetings are on the second Monday of each month over lunch. Join us for a free lunch and stick around to learn more about SharePoint and Office 365!

Speaker Call:

The Kansas City Office 365 User Group is looking for speakers. We are looking for local speakers, and all are welcome to apply, even if you have wanted to speak before but haven't found an opportunity to step up previously.

Reminder of July User's Group Meeting - DOES NOT REQUIRE RSVP - Open to All 
The July meeting will take place on Thursday, July 16th, at 2:30 PM CDT.

If you are interested in joining the User Group leadership please reply to this email.


Title: Microsoft's Modern Data Warehouse Architecture

Speaker: Pierre LaFromboise, Director of Business Analytics, Covenant Technology Partners

Pierre has worn multiple hats on his journey through technology: everything from a systems administrator for Internet service providers to a web designer to even a .Net developer. Starting with a chance encounter with Ralph Kimball’s Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit, the last decade has been focused on business intelligence and data warehouse design primarily on Microsoft’s SQL Server platform. Currently, he leads one of the largest Microsoft focused BI consulting teams in the St. Louis region.

Microsoft recently announced a rebranding of their Azure SQL Data Warehouse to Azure Synapse Analytics. But, Azure Synapse Analytics promises much more than just a replacement for a relational data warehouse. It represents the culmination of their modern analytics data architecture vision and it spans everything from traditional dataset to big data to streaming real-time analytics all under a single pane of glass. In this session we will go through an architectural overview of platform, discuss what is available right now, what is coming, and how this changes the way we approach analytics.

All sessions will be recorded.
You will be able to find these sessions, as well as previous sessions, on

 KCSSUG Youtube .
THIS MEETING WILL BE AVAILABLE VIA ZOOM.

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, THIS MEETING WILL BE HELD ONLINE WITH DISCORD: https://discord.gg/wmFHB7y

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 online for the next book we will be reading in the KC Tech Book Club! We will be reading The DevOps Handbook by Gene Kim et al. This is the follow up to the previous book we read, The Phoenix Project, which kind of gives a high-level outline of the lessons learned from that book.

Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1942788002/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Feel free to still come if you haven't read the book or just read parts of it or read it years ago and can't remember anything about it. It will be a very laid-back discussion format.
