    "How Mobile Apps Led Me to Microcontrollers" by Chris Riesgo

    Let's face it, solderless breadboards are just awful. Whether you're building a 

    Small electronics and hardware fascinate me. Life as a .NET mobile developer is incredible, but if you’re anything like me, you still want to work with your hands from time-to-time. I’ve wanted to tinker with Raspberry Pi and Arduino for ages, but never knew where to start or how to apply the skills I have. The answer was right in front of me!

    Let me share how my love for building mobile apps opened up the world of microcontrollers. You’ll see how I got started working with my first Arduino board, and some of the incredibly fun and useful ways you can interact with microcontrollers from your own mobile apps. I’ll even bring hardware to show it in action! I hope to inspire new projects for you, your family, or your job. I’m not a microcontroller maker wizard, but come hang with us if you want to learn how to take your .NET skills to start hacking against hardware.

    Chris has spent the last four years building professional apps on the Xamarin platform. He’s a Microsoft MVP and Xamarin MVP with more than a decade of .NET experience developing enterprise applications. Chris leads the mobile team at LeanKit as Mobile Architect. In his spare time, he blogs about Xamarin, tinkers, organizes the Nashville Mobile .NET Developers Group, and speaks about his passions wherever he can.

    We'll begin the meeting as always with show & tell. So, bring what you've been working on and tell everyone about it.


    Need help with your project? Bring it and ask for help.

    HELP! We've lost our food sponsor and need to find a new one ASAP. We have a little cash to cover food this month if we have to but in order for that to continue we'll need to find a new sponsor. Please talk to your employers or companies that you work with and see if they might be interested in helping us keep you fully fueled. If you have any ideas for sponsors and would like me to inquire for you, please send an email to [masked]. Additionally, if you would like to make a donation to help cover costs you can do so via PayPal to my same email address or through the MeetUp donations feature. We'll also put out a bucket for donations during the meeting. THANKS!

    Food & drinks will be served at 6PM. Show & Tell and the presentation will start no later than 6:30.

    "Azure IoT and the Enterprise Maker" by Kent Stroker, Microsoft

    This four (4) hour workshop is an exploratory, first look workshop into how IoT leverages cloud technologies and is designed primarily for those working as “enterprise makers” in companies with IoT projects and/or may find themselves needing to expand their knowledge beyond the local device and understand downstream architectures in the cloud. This workshop addresses how data from a device may be received and subsequently processed. This class is not about the device, it is about device data and cloud back ends.

    ORGANIZATION
    This is a lecture-lab style course in which topics are presented by the instructor. Labs are completed by students during the workshop, or students may finish labs after the conclusion of the workshop. This workshop presumes no knowledge of Azure cloud products. It does presume knowledge with making an IoT device using an Arduino or Raspberry PI and/or other such related “maker” experiences and skills.

    COURSE OBJECTIVES
    1. To introduce students to Azure Cloud
    2. To introduce students to Azure IoT portfolio
    3. To provide hands on experience building a basic “cold” and “hot” path IoT, cloud-based, back-end processing architecture
    4. To introduce students to streaming analytics and dashboards
    5. To prepare students for continued education around IoT

    COURSE TOPICS
    1. Azure Cloud IoT portfolio overview
    2. Source device background and how lab data is being generated
    3. What is the Azure IoT Hub?
    4. Lab One – Create an Azure IoT Hub and connect to device telemetry
    5. Azure SQL and NoSQL databases and “cold” path concepts
    6. Lab Two – Create an Azure database and write data from IoT Hub to database
    7. How to create dashboard with PowerBI
    8. Lab Three – Create a simple dashboard
    9. How to examine data in real-time using a “hot” path, streaming analytics and dashboard
    10. Lab Four – Create a streaming analytics component and real-time dashboard

    STUDENT SUPPLIES
    1. Laptop running Windows 10 that has wireless network capability.
       a. Enable Developer Mode
       b. Enable Windows feature “Windows Subsystem for Linux”
            i. Make sure you can invoke a bash shell from a Command Prompt window
       c. Install Node.js  v6.10.3 LTS from www.nodejs.org
       d. Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition

    NOTE: Windows 10 is the only supported version for IoT Core and other Azure IoT tools, so if you plan on working with Azure IoT, you need Windows 10.  If you plan to NOT use Windows 10, then you will likely not be able to perform most of the labs.

    2. Students should plan on being able to provide their own hotspot connectivity. While most workshops try to provide a free Wi-Fi connection, they are of unpredictable quality. Students are strongly advised to have their own Wi-Fi hotspot capability.
    3. An active Microsoft Azure subscription. Students need to arrive at the workshop with an active Microsoft Azure account and subscription and are strongly advised to do this prior to arrival. Azure accounts are free for the first 30 days and come with $250 credit. Visit azure.microsoft.com for more information and to sign up for a free account.
        a. If you already have a Azure account and have exhausted the 30 days and/or the credits, it is easy to create a Pay-As-You-Go subscription; this class will use under $5 of credits for the labs;
        b. or, use a different email address and sign up for another free account
        c. Remember to bring your laptop power supply and a mouse is often nice.
            i. Packing an extension cord is often a good idea too.
    4. Students will receive an email prior to first day lab with a URL to the lab handout; it is strongly advised for students to print a copy for easy reference during the workshop.


    INSTRUCTOR COMMENTS
    This is a very cram packed 4 hours, come prepared to learn at a fast pace. Also, understand that this course will not make you an expert in Azure IoT, rather this is a first look at the depth and breadth of the Microsoft IoT technology stack and introduces to some of the major pieces of a typical IoT cloud architecture. You should come away from this workshop with a sense of “knowing what you do not know” and eager to learn more. There are many avenues for learning more and we will wrap the workshop with next steps and learning resources you may wish to explore. Look forward to seeing you at one of these workshops this summer!

    Join us Wednesday, April 12 as Jeffrey Mikres, IT Director, Consumer Solutions at LifeWay Christian Resources, shares his team's experience with Google Venture's design sprint process - ideating a new product and pitching it to clients, all in a 5 day sprint.

    -SPEAKER- From Jeffrey Mikres: "Google Venture's design sprint process represents an effective and proven way to ideate around new product development. They've used it with hundreds of companies as well as with internal teams at Google. The process involves a 5-day plan that culminates on a Friday putting your prototype in front of real, potential customers to get feedback. This talk will walk you through the basics of what happens during those 5 days and will give you the tools to come up with your own product ideas and get them in front of customers. It'll also touch on the recent design sprint run at LifeWay for a potential new product. If you develop products and ideas for users, and haven't read Sprint (https://goo.gl/csjGk4), I highly recommend it. Jeff will also be doing a short Q&A after he presents."

    -DOOR PRIZES- I've purchase three copies of "Sprint" to give away as door prizes, so please be sure to sign in as you arrive to get your name on the spin wheel for a chance to win.

    -AGENDA- 5:30 -- Arrive and check-in to be entered to win the door prize. Socialize with the room. Announcements. 6:00 -- presentation and Q&A with Jeffrey Mikres 7:00 -- stay to talk or head on home

    "Making PCBs: From DIY to Production" by David Shuman

    Let's face it, solderless breadboards are just awful. Whether you're building a circuit to last or just prototyping a design, making a printed circuit board is often a much better option. And it's fun! This talk will present, with live demonstrations, using CAD software to draw a schematic diagram and lay out a board; fabricating a PCB using a laser printer, toner-transfer paper, and etching solution; and drilling lots of really tiny holes. Take home some free toner-transfer supplies generously donated to NashMicro by PulsarProFX! And do-it-yourselfers are no longer limited to cooking up a few boards in the kitchen -- we'll also discuss how you can have your designs professionally fabricated, in small quantities or large batches, for a lot less than you might expect.


    We'll begin the meeting as always with show & tell. So, bring what you've been working on and tell everyone about it.


    Need help with your project? Bring it and ask for help.

    HELP! We've lost our food sponsor and need to find a new one ASAP. We have a little cash to cover food this month if we have to but in order for that to continue we'll need to find a new sponsor. Please talk to your employers or companies that you work with and see if they might be interested in helping us keep you fully fueled. If you have any ideas for sponsors and would like me to inquire for you, please send an email to [masked]. Additionally, if you would like to make a donation to help cover costs you can do so via PayPal to my same email address or through the MeetUp donations feature. We'll also put out a bucket for donations during the meeting. THANKS!

    Food & drinks will be served at 6PM. Show & Tell and the presentation will start no later than 6:30.


    Come join the fun and invite your friends!

    Code + Pinot :: Kanban Fundamentals for Everyday Life - Sponsored by LeanKit

    Sometimes it feels like 24 hours in a day still isn’t enough to complete all of the projects we have on our to do lists. Even for those with the greatest of multi-tasking skills, it seems projects fall through the cracks or the outcomes at completion are less than stellar.

    Join us as LeanKit takes us through a TWO PART series on Kanban! The first will be looking at understanding what Kanban is in a very practical way - our normal everyday lives. The second, to be held in March, will look at how Kanban is used in a software development environment.

    In this first workshop, LeanKit will introduce the basic concepts behind Kanban and how to incorporate these into your everyday life creating greater efficiency, a better understanding on how to set priorities, and see your projects and to-do lists get done!

    Then we’re going to make some dark patterns of our own!

    Leankit is excited to welcome you Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 6:00 PM to workshop on Scrum & Kanban as instructed by Brendan Wovchko.

    As developers we thrive on learning and growth — the constant pursuit of mastery. We often elevate craft and, much to our disadvantage, devalue methodology — seeing it as "overhead" or even a "necessary evil." Brendan Wovchko will share how becoming a student of Agile and Lean unlocked the doors to becoming a successful CTO, a fearless communicator, and a better developer.

    From Junior Dev to Mid-Dev :: The importance of Mentorship

    Nashville Software School has been serving our tech community since June of 2012, having graduated nearly 300 individuals who are now forging a new career as software developers. With their community based non-profit mission, the Nashville Software School continues to expand and bring new programs to those who are interested in learning more in the field of software development. Being the first junior developer on a software development team can be incredibly daunting, not only for the junior developer, but also the team hiring this person.

The importance of finding mentorship internally or externally to your company and how to establish a relationship where you truly grow your skills. Being a leader and making the decision to bring on a junior developer comes with preparation and commitment to the process.

    What goes into making the decision to hire first junior developer? What does this look like for them in terms of managing the team, delegating work, and truly incorporating juniors into the team Their commitment to mentorship and how they have supported the growth of juniors on their team and in the community Our expert panelists are eager to share their stories and experiences, as well as facilitate a highly interactive conversation. So, bring your questions!

In order to facilitate that process, I'll organize us into small teams and propose some simple "puzzles" that will require a bit of CS knowledge to solve elegantly. After each team presents its solution, I'll propose a few topics for our next meetup and/or solicit volunteers.

    For now, I'm tentatively scheduling this first meetup for about one month out from now at Digital Reasoning (where I work and can score us some office space.) If more people signup than we can accommodate or not enough people respond, I'll probably switch the time/location accordingly.
