Adobe XD is one of the highest-ranking tools in our group's "what would you like to learn?" survey. You've clearly indicated that it's either (a) very mysterious and you want to get your feet wet, or (b) an incredible tool that can help you with your daily work, and you need to learn some tips and tricks. Adobe says, "Adobe XD is the all-in-one UX/UI solution for designing websites, mobile apps, and more."

Wherever you fall on the spectrum, we've got you covered this month with a virtual live presentation by Julie Masalska, who's based in Denver. CO. Julia is a designer and educator, known for her entrepreneurial spirit and her willingness to share her knowledge in branding, packaging and the use of Adobe tools. Since 2018, she has been a guest and host on Adobe Live (www.be.net/live) working across the Adobe programs. In 2020 she became an XD instructor and is now bringing XD closer to the world. Besides her work with Adobe, Julia is hosting her own educational YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmuWU8GEBoRNun7hse03u1w?view_as=subscriber) and building an international design community on her Instagram page (https://www.instagram.com/justanothersunnygirl/). Julia is passionate about helping people transition careers and bringing them closer to design. She's graciously agreed to present to our group and we're so lucky to have her in the driver's seat for our May meeting!

Julia will help you get oriented as a beginner, or advance your skills if you're already working with XD. We'll talk about similarities between some of the tools in XD and their counterparts in InDesign and Illustrator. This is a live course, driven by your feedback -- we'll have some early polling questions in the Zoom meeting to determine everyone's appetite for different topics and she will teach based on those answers.

Our thanks to Paul Bunyar for connecting us with Julia! Our Zoom room can handle 100 people, so invite your friends!

-----
Speaker One:
Kat Grigg, Senior Technical Acct. Mgr, Confluent

Title of Talk:
Getting Down to Basics - Kafka 101

Abstract:
This presentation will cover the basics of Apache Kafka. Why would you use Kafka in your application? What is the overall architecture of Kafka? How does Kafka process messages and how does it store messages? How is data serialized? In this talk, I will be covering the basic internals of Kafka and how these components integrate together including brokers, topics, partitions, consumers and producers, replication, and Zookeeper. I will also talk about the types of problems people are providing solutions for with Kafka.
-----
Speaker Two;
Anna McDonald, Senior Technical Acct. Mgr, Confluent

Title of Talk:
Choose Your Own Topology, A Kafka Streams Adventure

Abstract:
Designing the perfect Kafka Streams topology for your events can be a challenge -- How should you configure your input Kafka topics? Is your target topology stateless or does it have to be stateful? What keys should you use for partitioning data and how will that selection impact join, groupBy and other operations? How should you manage state store size in RocksDB? What processing semantics do you need? Should you use session or windowed operations? Those are just some of the questions that need to be answered when designing a new Kafka Streams topology. In this presentation I will discuss the information needed to make major design decisions in Kafka Streams along with the associated pitfalls. The resulting decision map will serve as a basic guide and help lead the way on your journey to find the perfect topology!

----

Online Meetup Etiquette:
•Please unmute yourself when you have a question.

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!
