Join Modern Web Kansas City and GDG Kansas City for the upcoming talks sponsored by KCDC!

-------------------------
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!

In this virtual meetup we will explore the topic of algorithms from the ground up. First we will define an algorithm, then we will explore several algorithms used to accomplish the same task: sort an unordered array of integers. We will examine how efficient each algorithm is first by experimentation, then by exploring the topic of computational complexity. We will walk through practical examples that illustrate how to find the computational complexity of an algorithm. Then we discuss the importance of choosing the correct data structure for a given problem, again by example.

If you are not currently signed up with Operation Code, please visit https://operationcode.org/join and join (it's free). Once you have joined, you will have access to the Slack channel. Be sure to join the #kansas_city channel and join us Saturday morning at 9.

Freelancers should use client agreements with their clients. But how do you create one? What should it include? How do you negotiate it? How do you sign it? Those are all important questions and we'll cover them all in this presentation.

########
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are taking a hiatus from our in-person Hack Nights as we deal with the implications of COVID-19. We encourage teams to continue project work and to meet virtually from 6:00-8:00pm on Mondays. Our ability to provide pizza and snacks will be compromised, however :).

Register here for the Zoom link to kick off the March 30 meeting:
https://codeforamerica.zoom.us/meeting/register/v5Ekf-qqrTwiX0DFXKo2zbtPbExu44x9_A

A new Zoom link will be posted for each weekly meeting. You will need to register at the Zoom link to access the meeting kickoff. Individual teams will have access to video breakouts via Slack.

We are also exploring possible projects we could take on to help address this public health emergency. Please email codeforkc@kcdigitaldrive.org if you have any questions or are interested in working on immediate public health-related projects.

Thanks,
Aaron, Paul, and the rest of the Core Team

Please RSVP so that we know how many snacks & drinks to bring.

Civic Heroes of all types welcome! This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

Bring a laptop: If you intend on getting some hands-on hacking done (it's ok if you can't but it definitely helps to have one).

If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about, please let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself. We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.
