Breaking into a career in UX/UI Design is all about showing you've got the skills to make an impact from day one. The new normal? Career-focused bootcamps that are built around advancing or helping you break into high-paying industries faster than ever before. They provide an accessible way to more opportunities, more growth, and higher salaries.

Bootcamp courses come with their own challenges, but plenty of students have come before you, and they're ready to share valuable insights on excelling in our programs and hitting the ground running upon graduation.

Join us as we talk to a Thinkful graduate and explore the ways she made the most of her bootcamp experience and launched a successful career. We will dive into her Thinkful journey, the successful habits she created to stand out from the crowd, and how she ultimately got hired at her dream job.

About the Speaker:

Rachel Beiser graduated from college with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine/Studio Art and proceeded to take an internship at the American Museum of Natural History. She loved the job but quickly came to the realization that it was not going to provide the growth and earning potential she desired. So Rachel decided to enroll in a bootcamp, and after graduating developed an incredibly simple yet effective way to network — one that led to a company creating an entirely new position just to bring her on board.

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: Alex Woolford

Talk: Real-time recommendations with Snowplow, Kafka, and Neo4j

Abstract: The value of the information gleaned from a web session often has a very short half-life. Post-hoc analysis is often too late to be actionable. In this short talk, we'll show you how to generate customer profiles, and build a real-time recommendation engine with clickstream events sourced from Snowplow.

Bios: Alex is a systems engineer at Confluent, the company founded by the original creators of Apache Kafka.
He's been working with a diverse set of open source technologies for the past 7 years, specifically Hadoop et. al, StreamSets, and most recently Kafka. Alex maintains a YouTube channel of geeky practical examples which can be found at https://www.youtube.com/c/alexwoolford.

Outside of work he enjoys floating in a tank, playing guitar (very, very badly), and yelling from the sidelines at his kids sporting events.

Join us online for the next book we will be reading in the KC Tech Book Club! We will be reading Site Reliability Engineering which goes into how the field was established at Google and what lessons can be learned from their processes.

From Amazon: "The overwhelming majority of a software system's lifespan is spent in use, not in design or implementation. So, why does conventional wisdom insist that software engineers focus primarily on the design and development of large scale computing systems?

In this collection of essays and articles, key members of Google's Site Reliability Team explain how and why their commitment to the entire lifecycle has enabled the company to successfully build, deploy, monitor, and maintain some of the largest software systems in the world. You'll learn the principles and practices that enable Google engineers to make systems more scalable, reliable, and efficient—lessons directly applicable to your organization."

Amazon Link:
https://www.amazon.com/Site-Reliability-Engineering-Production-Systems/dp/149192912X

Feel free to still come if you haven't read the book or just read parts of it or read it years ago and can't remember anything about it. It will be a very laid-back discussion format.

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!

Your graphics and digital content need a spark!

This month we'll be talking about Adobe Spark -- who is it for, what can you do with it, what devices does it work on, and where does it fit into your creative workflow? Spark is an app (or several, depending on the platform) that allows you to quickly create social media graphics, web pages, short videos, and more. Tiffany and Joanna will walk us through what you need to know and how to get started.
