The Event
-------------------------
When: April 9th, 2020 from 6:30PM - 9:00PM
Where: Online (https://youtu.be/J7p1Tchhn3o)

In light of the COVID-19 situation, we've decided to move our upcoming event online! Our number one priority is to keep everyone healthy and safe, and hopefully this event will help with any quarantine boredom!

Our featured speakers so far are...

Alisa Duncan
Co-organizer of Angular KC & Program Director for ngGirlsKC
"Digging in to Angular Animations"
Angular has built in support for animations. We'll apply simple animations to components and router to see how it works.

J.D. Hillen
Senior Front-End Developer at Dimensional Innovations
"Vue in Practice @ DI"
Vue is not just another framework to the developers at Dimensional Innovations. It is a way of life. Since adopting Vue almost 2 years ago, we have learned many lessons. Most importantly, the power and flexability that Vue can bring to our projects. And with 50+ applications under our belts, Vue has become an indispensable tool for building amazing experiences for our clients. I'll discuss our process, a few of our projects and in what ways we think we use Vue in a unique way. This is the story of how DI took Vue from an experiment to our primary application framework.

Keep an eye out for more speaker announcements & talk details!

We're also excited to be partnering with AngularKC, KC React, VueKC, JavascriptKC, GraphQL KC, OWASP-KC & more to bring you this event!

We're back for another rendition of KC Remotetable!

KC Roundtable is KC's premiere breakfast group for 20 to 30-something entrepreneurs. Make your breakfast and coffee at home prior to 7:30 AM and hop on to understand how everyone is dealing with the various restrictions, remote work, and essential work, during this pandemic.

We can discuss the usual: Recent wins, struggles, and what resources are out there in the world.*

Our mission is to:
- Focus on relationship building; not lead generating
- Facilitate collaboration, openness, transparency, learning and teaching
- Establish an entrepreneurial network
- Fill the void of not having the water cooler

* Note: Going to set the automatic record of this conversation and potentially put it up on our Facebook Group page if there is greater value to our Meetup community. Please consider putting on pants.

Your KC Roundtable organizers are inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

More and more designers are learning that the ability to tell a story with their work has the power to set them apart. But what does storytelling actually mean in the context of design? As a UX/UI designer, your goal is not only to write a narrative but to ensure that the end product plays a positive role in showcasing your skills.

Join us as topic expert Carl Wheatly discusses the craft of design storytelling, and how it affects an interview. Learn how to weave this skill into every aspect of your design journey, plus tips and tricks for captivating any audience––from hiring manager to product user.

About Carl Wheatley:
Carl is a Product Design recruiter at Facebook. Prior to that, he was a UI/UX designer himself, working with numerous tech startups on application development and design services. Carl is also the co-founder of a Meetup called Global UXD
where he helps connect designers with each other to collaborate and create new opportunities. Having completed Bloc and Designlab bootcamps before becoming a recruiter, Carl is an expert at helping aspiring designers land their first roles in a competitive industry.

Have you heard of GREP, but the name sends you running for the hills? Always wanted to dabble but were afraid of getting hooked? Have no idea what GREP is and what it has to do with InDesign?

No matter how you answered, Erica Gamet's "GREP in InDesign" session is for you! She'll show you that using GREP can actually be fun and magical… so much so that she calls it "Unicorns and Rainbows!"

Erica will demonstrate the beauty of GREP by finding patterns of text, then formatting that text with very little effort. You'll be amazed how much this misunderstood tool can speed up production of your InDesign files.

Erica Gamet has been involved in the graphics industry for over 30 years. She is a speaker, writer, trainer, and content creator focusing on the Adobe InDesign ecosystem, Apple Keynote, and varied production topics. She is a regular presence at CreativePro Week's InDesign Conference, and speaks frequently at Canada's ebookcraft and Making Design in Oslo, Norway. Find Erica online at the InDesignSecrets YouTube channel, CreativeLive.com and through her own YouTube channel. When she isn't at her computer…oh, let's be honest, she's always at her computer.

In light of the COVID-19 situation, we've decided to move our upcoming event online! Our number one priority is to keep everyone healthy and safe, and hopefully this event will help with any quarantine boredom!

When: April 9th, 2020 from 6:30PM - 9:00PM
Where: Online (https://youtu.be/J7p1Tchhn3o)

Our featured speakers so far are...

Alisa Duncan
Co-organizer of Angular KC & Program Director for ngGirlsKC
"Digging in to Angular Animations"
Angular has built in support for animations. We'll apply simple animations to components and router to see how it works.

J.D. Hillen
Senior Front-End Developer at Dimensional Innovations
"Vue in Practice @ DI"
Vue is not just another framework to the developers at Dimensional Innovations. It is a way of life. Since adopting Vue almost 2 years ago, we have learned many lessons. Most importantly, the power and flexability that Vue can bring to our projects. And with 50+ applications under our belts, Vue has become an indispensable tool for building amazing experiences for our clients. I'll discuss our process, a few of our projects and in what ways we think we use Vue in a unique way. This is the story of how DI took Vue from an experiment to our primary application framework.

Keep an eye out for more speaker announcements & talk details!

Come and join us for tech talks, food, drinks, and some great conversation! We can't wait to meet you!

Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 6:00:00 PM The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop

Every Thursday, the members of Hammerspace gather to socialize, network, and meet new members of the space. We welcome the community at large to come down during this time to explore the workshop, check out all of the tools, fabrication equipment and work space made available to HammerSpace members, and ask questions of our community of Hammerspace users.

There is plenty of off-street parking, a kids playroom available for tiny makers, and the evening is always the origin point of new and amazing creative ideas.

Tours are led every 30 minutes for those curious about the tools and capabilities of the facility and staff. This is a free event, open to the public.
