ThursdayOct 27 2016Women Get IT
Clear your calendar, because this isn't your average networking event! WoMenGetIT is a mentorship program that connects future IT talent, students, women interested in technology, and those re-entering the workforce with local IT professionals. Our goal is to create a positive and supportive environment that enables us to help each other in the pursuit of creating a more diversified workforce.
Men, you are invited too! We started this as a program for women and quickly realized that men need mentors too. Besides, it seemed kind of silly to talk about improving the workplace with 70-80% of the workforce unrepresented.
Come one, com all, bring a guest, and let's "get IT!"

Spark SQL & Machine Learning - A Practical Demonstration
Please join us as we explore how SQL developers can deliver powerful machine learning applications by leveraging Spark's SQL and MLlib libraries. The presentation will include a brief overview covering Spark components and architecture, and then we dive right in with a live demonstration of loading and querying data using Spark SQL. Next, we'll examine the basics of machine learning algorithms and workflows before getting under the hood of a Spark MLlib-based recommendation engine. Our final demonstration looks at how familiar tools can be used to query our recommendation data before we wrap up with a survey of real-world use cases.
ThursdayOct 13 2016Hacking PowerPoint for Developers
Effective presentations are hard. When presenting, many developers show a few traditional bullet-point slides and discount the usage of PowerPoint or Keynote, and then resort to unpredictable live demos. From a developer’s perspective, I will highlight simple, but usually overlooked, features within PowerPoint, and some conventions you can apply to your next presentation. I will also demonstrate how PowerPoint can be used for Story Boards and as an alternative to Camtasia for recorded demos, as well as, a replacement for a live demo. It is time for you to revisit the powerful and easy to use capabilities of PowerPoint.

MondayOct 10 2016October Lunch Meeting "Patterns for Team and Organizational Communication"
Ever feel like no one really knows what is going on with your project? Do you find yourself frustrated when you deliver something (or it's delivered to you) and it turns out not to be what was needed? Does it seem like no one in your organization is truly communicating to each other even though you seem to have lots of meetings?
Well, you are not alone! Communication is a huge part of any project, especially with Agile (the whole "Individuals and Interactions" thing). Let's chat about your issues around communication between team members, other teams, and external stakeholders. We'l discuss some approaches to try and open up those lines of communication.
Food will be ready at 11:30 and the discussion will start at 12:00.
NO CONFERENCE LINE: Due to difficulties in logistics and a diminished experience for attendees, we are not longer going to host our conference line for the meeting.
Thanks to our host and sponsor Vaco for giving us the meeting space and buying lunch!
TuesdayOct 4 2016Simple Microservice Architecture with Seth Buntin
With a little bit of thought and the correct tooling I want to show how a microservice architecture can take shape. I will go over a simple JWT authentication example built in Clojure, but you can use all of the technology in Java. We will look at the concepts of 12 factor applications (https://12factor.net/) and how we can benefit from this type of methodology and in particular how we can make some decisions in the beginning that will make it easier on our way to a production system.
