Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 12:00:00 PM The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop

This is a two day blacksmithing class, beginning at noon. Each session will be about 3 hours, depending on how much progress is made.

In this class we will be doing some basic ornamental blacksmithing to produce a portable medieval basket torch. We will be learning to make repeatable parts using the forge, anvils, tongs, hammers and various bending and shaping tools. We will be cheating a tiny bit and employing the MIG welder in the place of traditional hot rivets, and the angle grinders in the place of a foot powered grind stone. We will also be making a steel scrollwork sconce to hold your torch on a wall or post. You may also simply make your torch taller for use as a garden torch.

This real steel torch COULD be used with a source of fire, but this class includes a rechargable, battery operated simulated flame... with remote control. Like a wizard.

This is a BLACKSMITHING class, so wear closed toe shoes, and expect to work in a hot environment. Our masking rules are still in effect, so please wear a mask that you will be able to work in. We have broken this class into two days in order to make it less demanding and hot, but we are not in any hurry, and we can always take breaks as necessary.

Bring some water.

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 5:30:00 PM Online event

A sister Meetup group in Chicago is holding this event. We thought this meetup might be of interest to our membership (you are welcome to sign up for it here).

The Power of "Yes" or: How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love Governance
(original Meetup page:)
https://www.meetup.com/futureofdata-chicago/events/278142762/

Full data lifecycle projects hold tremendous potential for organizations to uncover new insights and drivers of revenue and profitability. Big Data has brought the promise of doing device data capture, data enrichment, data science, and analytics at scale to enterprises. This promise also comes with challenges for developers, admins, and consumers to continuously access new data and collaborate.

Full data lifecycle projects involve many underlying technologies like Nifi, Kafka, Spark, HBase, Hive, Impala, etc.. How do IT professionals meet the demands of data consumers and decision makers? How do they make sure the right people can access everything they need?

In this meetup, join Greg Bleers, a Sr. Solutions Engineer and Carolyn Duby, Lead Cyber Security SME and Principal Solutions Engineer - both of Cloudera - to learn how the attributes of a modern platform empowers teams to build end-to-end implementations using all data that's possible to acquire and support high value use cases for the business. We will show a demo of Data Visualization and the CDP SDX layer (powered by Apache Ranger and Apache Atlas) with the focus on reducing complex toolset chaining and governing access to data consumers and decision makers.

The demonstration will cover Data Visualization from a governance perspective. We will show how SDX helps teams manage the access to all the data that's possibly relevant and make it accessible to those who need it, when they need it. We will walk through the data catalog, security policies, and data lineage prior to building a dashboard.

This is still a tricky time for public gatherings, but Future of Data is committed to providing informative tech content & facilitating discussions in the streaming data space. Therefore, this will be an exclusively online event that will be held in the Central Daylight Time (CDT) zone.

Tuesday, June 1, 2021 at 7:00:00 PM KC Farm School at Gibbs Road

Continuing our tradition of helping a local non-profit organization with our Photo Walk assets, we are joining together (in-person at last!) at the KC Farm School at Gibbs Road in KCK. There are 3 acres of working farm and 11 acres of future farm to wander outdoors and take fabulous photos. We will follow whatever health guidance is in place in June.

KC Farm School at Gibbs Road is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization empowering individuals through on-farm, hands-on experiences and vocational education connecting them to the land and soil, food, themselves and their communities. At the center of its community,
the farm generates an inspiring environment transforming the individual and society through community-wide, multi-generational, participatory, and collaborative food projects while it provides job training opportunities, healing and fun.

We will gather at 7:00 at the Farm to shoot the best images we can to illustrate the growth and community that the KC Farm School embodies.

After the photowalk we will post our best images to a website. KC Farm School will select the prize-winning photo. The photos become available to the Farm to use as they see fit in their marketing and promotion (with the provision that our members can use their own photos in their portfolios).

Don't forget we will draw for the Creative Cloud annual subscription in the raffle drawing and you must be present to win!

See you Tuesday night, June 1, at 7:00 pm!

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!

Thursday, June 3, 2021 at 6:00:00 PM The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop

ATTENTION! THIS EVENT IS FOR MEMBERS OF HAMMERSPACE ONLY.
Well, we made it folks. All of our staff and instructors have been vaccinated by now and so we will be resuming classes and other group activities (at slightly reduced maximum attendees) beginning in June.

Our regular weekly open house will not be resuming. Instead we will be hosting a MEMBERS ONLY social event on the first Thursday of each month going forward. Come in and catch up with other members of the space, and check out the new improvements! As is traditional, feel free to bring a snack or extra beverages to share with new friends and old friends alike.

All spaces will be re-opened on this date, but mask use will still be required for an unknown duration. Eating and drinking should still be done on the patio.

Tours will now be provided EVERY DAY on a call ahead basis, so there is no need to wait for an open house.

🌍 This is a Kong Network event
❗REGISTER HERE: https://bit.ly/3fzqYLA

In this workshop, you'll learn about Kong for Kubernetes, a fully native Kubernetes Ingress Controller for enhanced API management. Kong for Kubernetes can manage ingress traffic and impose policies for you. You can configure all of Kong using Custom Resources Definitions (CRDs) with Kong for Kubernetes.

Kubernetes is the de-facto platform for container orchestration. To expose services outside of the cluster, Kubernetes requires Ingress resources to be defined. When services are exposed outside the cluster, they should be protected and secured. Requirements such as authentication, observability of the traffic, auditing, encryption, integrations with other solutions become critical for Ingress management.

Kong is a next-generation Service Control Platform that provides policy, health checking, load balancing and more to services running in and outside Kubernetes. In Kubernetes, Kong provides a world-class ingress management platform that can be managed using native tooling (i.e. kubectl, manifests, CRDs, helm, etc.) to manage Ingress traffic and apply policies to address the challenges of ingress management.

πŸ“š Learn
In this workshop, you will learn how the Kong Ingress Controller can easily manage ingress traffic and policies for services in a native Kubernetes way. In particular, you will perform:

- Set up a Kubernetes Cluster
- Deploy the Kong Ingress Controller
- Deploy a sample Echo Service
- Expose, Secure and Protect the Service with Kong

The Kong Ingress Controller consists of a Kubernetes Ingress, the powerful Kong gateway and CRDs to deliver all of the benefits of Kong and ingress management, natively in Kubernetes.

⏱ Agenda
- Welcome & introductions
- Overview of Ingress management in Kubernetes
- Connectivity Test
- Hands-on labs
- Questions & Close

😎 Speaker: Ned Harris, Solutions Engineer at Kong

πŸ‘‹ Interact
The workshops are designed to be an interactive, hands-on experience. Please turn on cameras & mics.

Woohoo! It's time to celebrate the Omaha .NET User Group's 20th anniversary! We're sooo excited. We have a lot of great things happening at this meeting. Here's the rundown...

The founder of our group, Philip Wolfe, will be speaking on how the group got its start and how the .NET universe has changed in the past 20 years. We also have Scott Hanselman speaking on a topic of his choice. He's busy presenting at Build this week, so there should be a lot of great options coming out of that.

Finally, we have arranged to have not one, but two sponsors for this month's meeting making the giveaways even better! We'll be getting more details about this coming up.

Needless to say, you don't want to miss this event! Make sure you block of your calendar for June 3rd, starting at 6;00 PM. We'll be meeting virtually on Teams for this meeting, but when we get back together in person, we'll continue the celebration.

(ISC)Kansas City Chapter
BEHAVIOR-BASED NETWORK DETECTION AND RESPONSE
Behavior-based Network Detection and Response 

 The network perimeter has disappeared as enterprise workloads move to the cloud. Emerging attack surfaces brought on by this adoption open the door for new attacks, which legacy security tools are ill-equipped to handle. As a result, SOC teams are leveraging modern behavior-based Network Detection and Response to hunt and stay ahead of attackers.
