2016 November Meeting

November 7th, 2016 Comments off

***** NOTICE: NEW LOCATION  *****

When: November 8, 2016    11:30 – 13:00

Where: StarSpace46  1141 W. Sheridan Avenue


Website: http://www.starspace46.com/

Speaker: Ryan Hoegg

Topic: Microservices and Me

Those of us involved with software systems have probably been hearing and reading about microservice architecture more and more. We’ll explore why that is, what benefits this approach offers, and how to go about designing and building systems this way. We’ll touch on promise theory, service discovery, handling failure, and disposable software.
This talk is meant for humans who work together to try to get computers to do useful things.  That includes java developers.

We thank Techlahoma for generously providing the food and drink, and to StarSpace46 for providing the facility.

2016 September Meeting

September 7th, 2016 Comments off

When: September 13, 2016    11:30 – 13:00

Where: Prototek    401 NW 10th St.   Downtown OKC


Website: http://prototekokc.com/

Speaker: Tamara Bartlett, Software Developer and Consultant, ThoughtWorks

Topic: Infrastructure as Code (IAC)

The topic of Infrastructure as Code (IAC) keeps cropping up in the world of Continuous Delivery and Continuous Integration but the topic can seem a bit abstract. But what if it’s compared with something everyone is familiar with, like board games? Dip your toes into the basics of automated deployment and Infrastructure as Code through some fun board game analogies. Learn about the benefits, challenges and tooling of IAC.

Tamara is a software developer and consultant currently working for ThoughtWorks. After graduating with a degree in Computer Engineering and a brief stint at Boeing doing software for satellites, she now is interested in DevOps, back-end software development, and ways to make software teams work harder, better, faster, stronger. In her free time, she runs, drinks excessive amounts of coffee, skydives, and attempts to do yoga. In the near future, she’s looking forward to presenting this talk at Grace Hopper Conference (for women in computer science) and attending HashiConf to learn more about Infrastructure as Code.

We thank Techlahoma for generously providing the materials for the meeting, including the projector, pizza, chairs and to ProtoTekOKC for providing the cool environment.

We are meeting at ProtoTek again this month as the new location is still not ready.

Speaker: Jordan Parmer, Software Engineer, Oseberg

Topic: What Is Functional Programming and Why Should You Care?

It’s hard to ignore the growing number of Functional Programming languages. Haskell, Scala, Clojure, F#, Erlang, R, and many more. But what is Functional Programming and why should you care?  This talk sets out to demystify FP, debunk common misconceptions, and highlight ways FP can solve certain problems. Stuck with Java or C#. No worries! Functional programming doesn’t require a purely functional programming language. It’s a different way of building. Let’s get functional!

We thank Techlahoma for generously providing the materials for the meeting, including the projector, pizza, and chairs.

Topic: Intro to Continuous Delivery

Continuous delivery is a central theme in the DevOps movement, and certainly a central component of the culture. It is the set of engineering techniques, practices, processes, and tools for releasing changes to software services frequently and reliably.

We’ll review the concepts involved in CD, take a look a working CD pipeline for an example application, and discuss how this could apply to other projects.

 

Pizza, Chairs, etc.
