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!

Speaker Bio:
Bobby is the founder of Evident Systems, which helps banks and credit unions put FinTech innovations into operations to delight their customers. Bobby's been writing web employment and distributed systems with Clojure and ClojureScript since 2010.

Abstract:
It's a dream as old as business computing: the ability to create a graphical model and then to deploy it as a working information system. Many attempts to realize this dream have come and gone with varying degrees of success, from visual programming languages like Visual Basic and Scratch to business workflow systems like BPMN and its proprietary commercial variants, to engineering-focused systems like UML.

But let's face it: most low-code and model-based application development tools fall far short of the needs of modern software development teams. At best, they're useful for rapidly testing ideas and creating prototypes. At worst, they're used by "citizen coders" to cynically circumvent good engineering practices, with IT operations left holding the bag of operating, securing, and scaling black-box applications that cut against modern DevSecOps practices.

Event-driven application architecture, enabled by infrastructures like Kafka and its ecosystem, has the potential to dramatically advance toward the age-old, model-driven, and low-code dream. But what would an event-centric and developer-friendly low-code look like?

This talk will outline strategies for low-code and model-driven development based on Event Modeling. We'll explore how event-driven application architecture provides a simple yet robust framework for generating DevSecOps-friendly code for the UI, for the web services layer, and for event processing.

Many Spark ETL examples show data transformation through SparkSQL. Not all data engineering tasks fit well into the table-oriented SQL paradigm. In some cases, the data may be in a non-tabular format, such as images, PDFs, or other binary data types. Spark is a well suited to these sorts of data engineering tasks as well.

In this meetup, we will leverage the PySpark framework to read a large number of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) medical images produced by MRI scans, use the numpy and pydicom libraries to transform them into a dataset more suitable for training a machine learning model, and write the resultant PNG objects to an output S3 bucket. We are using the data from the "RSNA-MICCAI Brain Tumor Radiogenomic Classification" Kaggle competition, but this approach can be used for general purpose DICOM processing.

Looking to build a strong foundation for a career in UX/UI Design? Learn all about Wireframes and Prototypes in this interactive webinar!

About this event

Wireframes and prototypes are two of the most foundational pieces of the UX/UI Design Process, but creating your first version (or several!) of each can feel a little intimidating. How do you even get started? What separates good wireframes from bad ones? And how do you take your basic wireframes to working prototypes that will impress the rest of your team?

Join us for this hands-on workshop where we'll break down best practices of wireframing and prototyping in UX/UI Design, examine some different use cases from out in the wild, and use Figma to apply what you'll learn to a real-world example.

What you will learn:

Why UX/UI skills are so in-demand
Guiding principles for good wireframes
Hands-on experience with Figma for prototyping

A design system is crucial for a successful launch. In this webinar, we'll explain how to build a system that establishes clear UX goals.

About this event

Design isn't just an afterthought in tech circles anymore, it truly helps drive the direction of the product or service. But how does a design team help guide the rest of the company in the right direction? By incorporating a design system. A design system is a master collection of the key standardized documentation every company needs to define the overall design of the product.

Incorporating a design system in your company brings lots of tangible value: faster to market times, improved UX and customer satisfaction, better internal communication, and consistency across all products. Join us in this webinar as we continue to discuss why having a design system is so important and gain hands-on experience in creating your own.

What you will learn:

What is a Design System?
Notable Real-World Design Systems
Figma Tips and Best Practices
Creating Our Own System

Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 12:00:00 PM Hammerspace Community Workshop & Makerspace

THIS IS A TWO DAY CLASS - SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. 12pm-4pm

In this class we will be learning how to design our own flanged maces using modern tools.

With the help of vector drawing software and a CNC plasma cutter, students will personalize the design and then learn to cut it out.

From there we will move on to sanding and grinding tools, cut off tools, and wire wheels.

Next, we will be assembling our mace heads using a mig welder. Depending on the available time, we will begin finishing our welding work with abrasive tools.

On day two, we will be learning to operate a wood lathe.
Students will turn their own mace handles to mechanically fit their heads, and add beauty to the handle.

We will also learn about air powered metal finishing tools, which we will use to refine and smooth our welding work and finish our metal surfaces.

At the end of the day, we will assemble our mace and learn about finishing wooden tool handles for longevity, grip, comfort, and beauty.

This class is suitable for ages 16 - 116
Please wear closed toe shoes and bring a long sleeve denim or heavy cotton shirt to weld in. (NO FLANNEL PLEASE)
Feel free to bring drinks etc. as this can be hot work.

Looking to build a strong foundation for a career in UX/UI Design? Learn all about Wireframes and Prototypes in this interactive webinar!

About this event

Wireframes and prototypes are two of the most foundational pieces of the UX/UI Design Process, but creating your first version (or several!) of each can feel a little intimidating. How do you even get started? What separates good wireframes from bad ones? And how do you take your basic wireframes to working prototypes that will impress the rest of your team?

Join us for this hands-on workshop where we'll break down best practices of wireframing and prototyping in UX/UI Design, examine some different use cases from out in the wild, and use Figma to apply what you'll learn to a real-world example.

What you will learn:

Why UX/UI skills are so in-demand
Guiding principles for good wireframes
Hands-on experience with Figma for prototyping
And much more...

How to join us: Once you register with Eventbrite, you will receive an email with the links to the live webinar from BigMarker. If you do not receive your link, please email virtual@thinkful.com.
