Join us for an evening with Cami Travis-Groves

At our next virtual chapter meeting we will sit down with local speaker, creative, and author Cami Travis-Groves to discuss her tried-and-true methods for resolving conflicts with project stakeholders. Special thanks to our sponsor for the evening, Tricom Technical Services!

Things don’t always go as planned. Conflicts arise between clients and creatives or between project stakeholders; add in a looming deadline and you have potential for heated drama. Cami explains her fail-proof, step-by-step method to diffuse conflicts.

You will learn how to…

  1. diffuse emotions that run high in conflicts,
  2. remain in control with clearly defined objectives, and
  3. create solutions that everyone is satisfied with.

Schedule

6:30 p.m. Zoom opens for pre-event networking

7:00 p.m. Panel discussion

Now that we have some context around Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Norris Smith will walk us through some implementations of it in WebMethods (https://www.softwareag.com/en_corporate/platform/integration-apis/webmethods-integration.html). Integration is the key to applications, departments and companies all talking data often in real time. So, this should be pretty helpful in any role.

As ever, we may well discuss some of the current social/global concerns around the world. :)

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

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!

One code base to rule them all? For years we have been promised that this dream was just around the corner. There have been many attempts in the past, but they all left us wanting more and never seemed to be worth the trade offs that came with them. In this meeting we are going to take a look at the Uno Platform and see if they can deliver on the promise of a single code base for Windows, Web-Assembly, iOS, macOS, Android and Linux. We will look at how to get started with the Uno Platform and walk through building out a basic application and discuss the pros and cons of their platform. Join us virtually for a fun evening of nerding out on cool development technologies.

Drones have proven to be a tremendous resource for GIS applications. Drones can be used to produce high resolution/ high accuracy orthophotography as well as detailed surface models. These drone generated deliverables are successfully used by large organizations everywhere. While the use of these systems and the integration of these products is very successful, there are other use cases where the integration of drone technology has proven difficult. Drones are excellent tools for Inspection and asset management. Drones can reach locations that are difficult otherwise. The challenge however has been managing the information from the drone and properly integrating into the rest of your asset information. In this demonstration, we will show how your field-collected drone data can be integrated directly into your GIS workflow and collected and displayed intuitively using augmented reality so that all of your data is managed in one location. We will show some operational use cases for these workflows as well.

Wednesday, September 2, 2020 at 6:00:00 PM Stowers Institute

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
