Josh Marchello will present on JSONB in Rails

"Should I use a Relational Database or a NoSQL database for this app?" Why not both? With support for PostgreSQL's JSONB data type becoming more and more common, you can get the best of both worlds! If you're unfamiliar, JSONB is a datatype in PostgreSQL that allows you to store JSON-like data in columns of your database tables. Your relational data can be relational, while your unstructured or tree-shaped data can be stored in JSONB. In this talk you'll learn how to query JSONB and how to integrate it into Rails' ActiveRecord.

We've brought back an old tradition after the meetup of going out for drinks and socializing afterwords. We'll head to https://www.google.com/maps/dir/9201+Ward+Pkwy+%23200,+Kansas+City,+MO+64114/Smitty's+Garage+Burger+and+Beer,+8811+State+Line+Rd,+Kansas+City,+MO+64114/@38.9655187,-94.6099235,16z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x87c0e8df68a7be7d:0x9f9449b205c49b81!2m2!1d-94.6029972!2d38.9633678!1m5!1m1!1s0x87c0e92617aea01b:0x9d56a47a77b4cfce!2m2!1d-94.606584!2d38.968319!3e0 after the meetup.

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 - TBA

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, Laminas, Laravel, 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

We live at an unprecedented inflection point when it comes to technology. The world has fully adopted the most transformational technology in its history before figuring how to deal with its inherent—and very real—risks. The Internet is revolutionizing the world. We are totally dependent on it. But, it wasn't designed with security in mind. We have traded our personal security for convenience. And that's where cybersecurity comes in. This relatively new, exploding industry is on a mission to secure a world that suddenly finds itself running on the Internet. It's no wonder there are 350,000 cybersecurity job openings in the US today.

Join us online to hear more about what a career in cybersecurity looks like. If you're curious about changing your career, this event is perfect for you. You'll hear from graduates of our affiliate, SecureSet Academy, and learn more about Flatiron School's online cybersecurity immersive. In the end, we'll answer all of your questions live with a dedicated Q&A portion.

WE HEARD YOUR CRIES FOR HELP. When we asked our designers' group what Adobe product they wanted to learn most in 2020, the message was clear: PREMIERE PRO! Video is becoming a larger part of our design work every day, and it's nothing to be intimidated by.

In this session, Buck Sommerkamp and John Yuelkenbeck will walk you through the things you need, as a designer, to organize your project and create a basic video in Premiere. No plug-ins, no add-ons, just the awesomeness of what comes with Premiere Pro 2020 right out of the box!

There's no need to be afraid of Premiere Pro's interface! We'll show you how to add music, graphics, and basic motion to your Premiere project so you understand how it all fits together from importing raw assets to exporting your final project.

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!

"Burn It Down and Start Again: Principles of Modern JavaScript"
Heard about the latest JavaScript syntax? Seems like a day doesn't pass without a language update. And with all the focus on syntax changes, it's easy to miss the subtle principles driving JavaScript. Modern JavaScript doesn't just have new tools, it's composed differently. Don't use a feature without understanding why it matters. What problems does a new feature solve? How can new syntax make code easier to use and reuse? Modern JavaScript patterns follow four basic principles: predictability, readability, simplicity, and flexibility. In this talk, you'll learn how to think in modern JavaScript. We'll explore principles in modern JavaScript and how they apply to new syntax as well as upcoming language changes. Don't just throw new syntax into old paradigms. Write intentional code.

"Common Component Decomposition Pitfalls (And How To Avoid Them!)"
The popularity of component-based frameworks has led to a Goldilocks problem for many web development teams. Some teams have too many components, filling their code base with files and folders for components that don't have a clear purpose. Other teams have too few components, and the ones they have are monoliths containing way too much logic and becoming impossible to change. Let's discuss some common component decomposition pitfalls and strategies for making sure that the components you have in your system are just right.

"TypeScript in the Field: Magic or Menace?"
TypeScript is one of the most exciting and polarizing technologies tearing up Stack Overflow in 2020. If you wade through the torrent of headlines and developer blogs, you may encounter wild claims such as: "TypeScript reduced our number of unit tests by more than 38%," "I spent more time writing types than I did writing code," and, "What does it give me that a well-configured linter does not?" So, are you curious if TypeScript deserves all the hype and hot takes? In this talk, let's separate fact from fiction. Let's take a closer look at what TypeScript is, what it isn't, and how to use effectively it in your next production projects.

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

Tuesday, January 28, 2020 at 6:00:00 PM VML 250 Northwest Richards Road, Kansas City, MO

New year, new tech! This week we'll have a live video presentation from Bryan Ollendyke about his project called HAX (headless authoring experience).

Ollendyke has contributed to and spoken about Drupal for 13 years. Most recognized for a learning management system project called ELMS, Ollendyke has shifted gears entirely the last three years to focus on a decoupled editing experience called HAXTheWeb (https://haxtheweb.org/). The HAX editor is built on the W3C standard Web components and Bryan views it as the future of all web development.

Ollendyke's team has been progressively decoupling ELMS one web component at a time and has released over 400 reusable web components to date. He teaches a course at Penn state on emerging web technologies and leverages students in order to build a new decoupled CMS called HAXcms which is used for blogging, teaching and documentation.

Please RSVP soon if you can make this presentation. We look forward to seeing you there!

Be a 10x Engineer by Mentoring Junior Developers

Our industry is brimming with new talent. The difference between a good mentor and a bad mentor is monumental for the career of any new developer. While every developer has the opportunity to impact their team in this way, many pass on the change because they find it to be boring, tedious, or they think they are unqualified. Learn why you should take a role in helping grow your team's talent and proven strategies to be a successful mentor.

Speaker: Gabby Spurling (https://twitter.com/gabbythedev)

When Gabby started her career in technology, she had no idea if it was possible to combine her newfound love for coding with her passion for marketing, but was determined to find a path to get her there. Along the way she was exposed to a broad array of industries and technologies, from big data analytics in oil and gas to creating event driven applications in insurance. Currently working as a Lead Technologist at VMLY&R, Gabby's found a place where she can do both while supporting major clients like Ford, Sprint, and more. The common thread across all of her work has been creative problem solving and learning from incredible teams.
