Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 11:00:00 AM Virtual Meetup

Please register at the below link to reserve your spot today (must be registered to attend)
https://www.tibco.com/events/dr-data-science-office-hours

What is Dr. Data Science?

Dr. Data Science is an interactive virtual presentation aimed at helping new and advanced practitioners of data science and machine learning. The program is hosted by experts from our Data Science and Customer Success teams, including veterans from the world of advanced analytics and architects of the TIBCOⓇ Data Science platform.

About
We are launching a new Dr. Data Science series that explores a real-world data science project end to end. We'll take a comprehensive and detailed look at the work of the data scientist by examining each stage of a complex project, from inception through to deployment. We'll not only cover the classical phases of data science — including exploration, data preparation, feature generation, modeling, testing, and model ops — but also look at what happens when the right data isn't available, avenues of exploration don't yield results, models aren't accurate enough, and requirements change.

The first session in January, "No End in Sight," sets the scene. It will describe the history of an ongoing multi-year project at TIBCO, including initial goals, current status, and the project's ever-changing priorities and activities. In subsequent sessions, we'll dig into each of these activities, starting with a joint session with Dr. Spotfire. This joint session in February, will show how an exploratory data analysis back in the summer of 2019 generated a host of questions and competing priorities that continue to drive the project today.

Speakers:
Neelima Potti, Lead Customer Success Manager, TIBCO Software
Steven Hillion, Senior Director, Data Science, TIBCO Software

ISSA Greater Kansas City Jan 28, 2021 Chapter Event Web
When
Thursday, January 28, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM CST
Add to Calendar
 

Where
This is an online event.



Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals for a virtual meeting on January 28, 2021.
 
Topic:
O365 Security

Topic Summary:
We'll navigate through uncharted security territory by analyzing the attack lifecycle in the cloud and dissecting a real-world attack. The same technology that makes the cloud dynamic can have the opposite effect on an organization's ability to implement detection and response in cloud environments. This includes the adding additional layer of preventative controls in addition to MFA, because it's increasingly being bypassed in O365 as an example. Jason Stepp, Security Engineer with Vectra, will help us navigate through the uncharted security territory by analyzing the attack lifecycle in the cloud, reviewing the top cloud security threats, and dissecting a real-world cloud attack. Additionally, he'll provide key takeaways for managing access, detection and response, and security operations.
 
Date and Time:
Thursday, Jan 28, 2021

Location:
Web/Virtual

Agenda:
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM - Meeting & Presentation

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!

There are also no dumb questions! If you're just starting out this is a great opportunity to ask questions.

The meeting structure usually follows this format:

* Introductions / meet and greet new members
* Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question; discussing any new happenings that interest the group
* Get help setting up your development environment, looking at code, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)

All levels welcome!

Maybe you have been using using PHP for a week or even a decade--we all have things to learn and share. If you enjoy working with PHP, or want to learn more about it this meeting is for you.

Get Involved

If you're looking for a presentation-focused event with talks and demos, check out our weeknight meetups. We would also love to have you present! Please contact an organizer through Meetup or talk after a meeting to tell us more about your topic.

*** Please RSVP on Eventbrite to receive an email with your customized webinar link: https://bit.ly/3hlqSaV ***

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...

Thanks to Lisa we have special guest Luke Wade the founder of Awesome at KC Crew! KC Crew is is a Kansas City-based league organization. There are many different types of sports leagues that one can join throughout the year, one of them being a Virtual Reality League. Luke is going to share his experience about the league, what the KC VR league is about, and share some stories about participants' experiences.

Well have a chance to Q and A, and also talk about current events in the VR/AR space.

Looking forward to seeing your faces, more info on the league and signups below!

-Andrew

Virtual Reality leagues are back at DoubleTap in the Rivermarket.

Grab a team of 4 to play together in-person every week against other teams who love VR just like you.

Are you a beginner? Our Wednesday leagues are perfect for you to learn the basics of playing games in VR while also competing with others learning just like you.

VR Pro? Join our competitive teams on Wednesday to compete week to week in different games and skills to see who's the best while meeting others just like you.

Don't have a team of 4? No problem. We have a free agent system that will pair you with others and help create a team of your new best friends.

While most people are still using Java 8 from six years ago, new versions of the language are being released every six months! The latest versions provide an abundance of new features such as functional programming capabilities, switch expressions, local variable type inference, additions to the Stream API, new factory methods for Collections, text blocks and much more.

This talk will introduce my favorite new features since Java 8, provide practical examples of how these features can be used, and offer recommended practices and gotchas when using these features.

Key Takeaways:

Introduction of new features in the latest releases of Java

Examples of how the features can be used

Recommendations on good practices when using these features

Gotchas and caveats

Greater command of the programming language

Saturday Meeting Format

Our Saturday meetings are free-formed. Attendees bring up topics that interest them or that they want feedback on. Attendees are welcome to participate or just kick back and soak in the discussions. There are also no dumb questions! If you're just starting out this is a great opportunity to ask questions.

The meeting structure usually follows this format:

* Introductions / meet and greet new members
* Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question; discussing any new happenings that interest the group
* Get help setting up your development environment, looking at code, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)

All levels welcome!

Maybe you have been using using PHP for a week or even a decade--we all have things to learn and share. If you enjoy working with PHP, or want to learn more about it this meeting is for you.

Get Involved

If you're looking for a presentation-focused event with talks and demos, check out our weeknight meetups. We would also love to have you present! Please contact an organizer through Meetup or talk after a meeting to tell us more about your topic.
