About the talk:

As Agilists, we've become familiar with measuring what matters, breaking work down into bite-size chunks, and holding space for psychological safety. This is all well and good, but what about our language? How do we coach teams through word choices and metaphors?

Enter Clean Language, a coaching and interviewing technique where we help teams develop their own symbols and metaphors, not imposing ours onto them. (In other words, it's about them, not us.) In this interactive session, Erin Randall will walk us through what Clean Language is, demonstrate how we pollute others' language and metaphors, and lead us through the practice of asking others clean, powerful questions.

Learning outcomes:

1. Identify what clean language is.

2. Learn how we pollute others' metaphors and language.

3. Practice applying clean-language techniques in asking clean,
powerful questions.

About the Presenter:

Erin is a longtime agile, coactive, and ORSC-trained coach with a deep passion for serving people, teams, and organizations. Through her work with her coaching and consulting practice, Ad Meliora Coaching, she helps her clients to transform the way that they work and how they accomplish more. Her goal in all that she does is simple: happy people doing great work.

Erin lives in Austin, Texas, and can often be found in bookstores, on hiking trails with her dogs, or at one of the Agile Coaching Circles (she's one of the co-founders). Connect with her on LinkedIn or experience coaching for yourself by booking a session at www.admelioracoaching.com.

This year we launched 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.

With the sort of anomaly detection that's central to this project, one frequent challenge is that the data may well be unlabelled. We can apply various 'bootstrapping' techniques to identify anomalies, and in the last few sessions we've seen how clustering can be used to identify targets of interest. In this session, we take a sort of 'semi-supervised' approach so that experts can iteratively refine predictive models. We show how clusters and ensembles — and humans — can work together to create highly accurate models.

What is Dr. Data Science?

Dr. Data Science is an interactive 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. The program consists of two parts:

1. Office Hours: Monthly 30-minute live webinars to help everyone navigate best practices and technologies in the world of data science
- Info Gain: A tidbit of useful information for everyday data science, based on the most popular questions submitted to the TIBCO Community for Data Science
- Feature Sessions: The main presentation, featuring extended topics and unique challenges in advanced analytics and machine learning

2. Regular Tips: Weekly 5-10 minute YouTube videos to help users with day-to-day recommendations for TIBCO Data Science software.

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.

A sister Meetup group in Austin, TX is holding this event. This is still a tricky time for public gatherings, but Future of Data is committed to providing great tech content & facilitating discussions in the biig data space. This will be an exclusively online event that will be held in the Central Daylight Time (CDT) zone. We thought this meetup might be of interest to our membership (you are welcome to sign up for it here).

Get your Analytics "On Time"
(original Meetup page:)
https://www.meetup.com/futureofdata-austin/events/277964039/

Date/Time:
Tuesday, May 18, 2021
5:00 PM CDT

For an organization to become more data-driven, insights from the data warehouse must always arrive "on time". That means the data can be no more than a few seconds old, and query execution times should be fast enough to fit into the speed of human thought - regardless of complexity or type. Furthermore, the teams building these applications must deliver them "on time", to keep up with the needs of the business.

During this meetup we will discuss the concepts and practices involved in building and maintaining enterprise OLAP systems in a way that is scalable and high performance, even with large volumes of data.

Using Apache Kudu+Impala for a "Real Time" data warehouse you can get your analytics "on time", no matter which way you define it. Join this meetup to find out how!

Designing and Developing IoT Devices with C# and Meadow

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught me one key thing; I had more time for hobbies than I initially believed. However, most hobbies require you to learn all new things. For example, if you get into fitness, you must know about diet and exercise. When I got into woodworking last year, I learned all about wood types, tools, and first aid. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to use your current skill set to do something new?

Well, that is where the Meadow comes in, thanks to the team at Wilderness Labs. Meadow is a microcontroller with the ability to run .NET applications. Paired with the Meadow Foundation, an open-source set of libraries and drivers, you can now create your own physical solutions using sensors, motors, relays, power sources, and all sorts of fun things to solve problems.

Have a garden, and you want to test moisture content? Use the Meadow. Tired of talking to Alexa to do simple tasks and having her say, "I didn't understand?" Build a solution with the Meadow. Did your wife pick up beekeeping and promise you they do not sting you like in My Girl, but you really aren't sure you trust that, and now you must check the beehives… just me? Well, I am using the Meadow to help solve that problem… remotely.

In this session, we will check out what Meadow offers and look at what you need to get started. We will walk through simple designs and real-world solutions you can produce now, right from your desk.

Jeff Julian (https://www.linkedin.com/in/jjulian/)

Jeff Julian is a software consultant, author, entrepreneur, woodworker, marketer, videographer, photographer, and now a device designer in AgTech. He was the Co-Founder of Geekswithblogs.net with one of the club leaders, John Alexander, former Microsoft MVP in XML and SharePoint, former co-leader of this .NET User Group, and has been working on web applications since the mid-90s.

Philly Tech Sistas Presents: Thrive Up! Speaker Series featuring Michelle Brenner

Join us for our Thrive Up! speaker series where we help you develop leadership skills necessary to grow and thrive in your career. Leadership skills are essential to growing and thriving at work. If you are looking for ways to move up in your career by learning essential leadership skills and methodologies this series is for you.

Document Yourself: A Framework for Career Advancement

The goal of this session is to document yourself the way you would document code. You wouldn't expect someone who wants to use the program you built to read every line of code. Instead, they're relying on the design documents and doc strings to know how it works. The same is true with your career.

This workshop is about making it easy for you to provide overwhelming evidence of your value to the company. When you can show your ROI, it's much easier to secure that promotion, raise, or a new job that you deserve. We'll show you the following 3 steps to document yourself into your next promotion.

*Writing your daily accomplishments in the form of success statements.
*Putting them together into a brag sheet.
*And finally using them to create your elevator pitch.

Using this framework makes it easy to make a habit of documenting, the same way a style guide helps you document your code. Once you have documented yourself, you will be amazed at how much you have accomplished. You will walk out of the workshop with the confidence and plan to take your next step.

About Our Speaker

Michelle Brenner (she/her) is a Senior Software Engineer, with 10 years of experience in tech, from engineering support to manager. She runs an interview format tech podcast called From the Source that examines what tech jobs are really like. A Philadelphia native that now calls Los Angeles home, she is an art school graduate and a self-taught engineer. She enjoys making it easier for others to create great things, from artists to entrepreneurs. Michelle works to promote diversity and inclusion in tech through conference speaking and organizing, mentoring, board membership, and making sure everyone knows they belong here.

How do professional designers create a user-friendly experience? They go straight to the source — the user.

User research is the secret weapon that helps designers learn about the behavior, goals, motivations, and needs of the people who actually use their platform. With this valuable skill set, you'll be ready to kick off your career in UX design.

Join us in this webinar to get introduced to some of the proven techniques within this space, learn how to develop better user experiences, and how those skills will put you in high demand in this exciting career.

What you will learn:

What is the UX/UI Design Process
Discover the different types of user research
How human behavior applies to user research
And so 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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are taking a hiatus from our in-person Hack Nights as we deal with the implications of COVID-19. We encourage teams to continue project work and to meet virtually from 6:00-8:00pm on Mondays. Our ability to provide pizza and snacks will be compromised, however :).

Individual teams will have access to video breakouts via Zoom. You can use Slack for breakout rooms if you like.

We are also exploring possible projects we could take on to help address this public health emergency. Please email codeforkc@kcdigitaldrive.org if you have any questions or are interested in working on immediate public health-related projects.

Thanks,
Aaron, Paul, and the rest of the Core Team

Join us for our first lunchtime meetup! For this shortened online event, we'll have a full presentation and a lightning talk!

Angular Architecture with Ngxs
Ngxs is a framework that provides one of many solutions to managing state within an Angular application. Once you have decided to use this framework, you may still have more questions when building your app. How do you organize your code so that it can be maintained throughout the life of the application? How can you design components, services, and states that will be flexible as your app grows? In this talk we'll take a look at lessons learned from building a new application with Ngxs. This will cover various design patterns used, why they were used, and alternative patterns that were considered.
Presented by Devin Kelly-Collins

Few of My Favorite New Angular Things
Angular v12 is about to drop! In this lightning talk we'll cover some of the exciting features/fixes in v12 and beyond.
Presented by Alisa Duncan

Agenda
12:00PM CDT - Intros
12:05PM CDT - Angular Architecture with Ngxs
12:30PM CDT - Few of My Favorite New Angular Things
12:40PM CDT - Wrap-up/Enjoy your lunch!
