CINNUG

Tuesday, May 22nd, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Ken Baum presenting on the pressure to continuously improve our skills and advance our careers. As a community, we understand the importance of keeping our skills current and continuously upgrading them; if we’re not moving forward, we’re falling behind. We’d like to acquire new languages, work with the latest javascript frameworks, learn new programming and design techniques, and improve our soft skills, but who has the time? The kids are in soccer and karate and band and church activities and the commute is deadly and we volunteer on the weekends; there is just no time left over for career development. In this talk, Ken is going to examine the ways in which we learn new technology and how we might improve our learning without killing ourselves or sacrificing our families. He will also look at some of the sites that are available that can help us keep our skills honed and help us learn new technologies.

 
About our Speaker:
 

Ken Baum is a senior consultant for Ingage Partners, a certified B-Corp seeking to use consulting as a force for good.  He is a software developer with over 25 years of experience, predominately on the Microsoft stack in C++ and C#. His most recent experience is on a full-stack project consisting of a Dotnet/Sql Server back-end and AngularJS front-end. He’s an experienced teacher, presenter and mentor. When he’s not learning new technology or volunteering, he loves reading and watching Netflix shows. He loves The Tick (cartoon and live action), Firesign Theater, all things Monty Python, and Call the Midwife. He considers Fringe the greatest TV show ever, and when he saw Stranger Things, he felt like he was finally home.

 
Pizza, drinks and conversation will follow our speaker!
 
As usual, after we wrap our pizza break we will be holding another CINARC (Cincinnati Software Architecture Group). This session will feature more discussion on topics chosen the night of the meeting. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss issues of software architecture relevant to the members of the community.

 

All Things Mobile

The group is exploring a new direction towards Internet of Things with a possible location change or closing the group. The next meeting will be announced after a decision has been made.

CINNUG

Tuesday April 24th, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Martine Dowden presenting topics on Accessibility. As a community we understand accessibility is necessary but when it comes to implementation we often fall short. Here is what we will learn from this discussion: 

  • Why accessibility is important
  • 10 common accessibility fails
  • How to test for them
  • Solutions anyone can implement
 
 
About our Speaker:
 
Focusing on web interfaces that are beautiful, functional, and usable, Martine delivers products that adhere to WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 for accessibility and compliance. She approaches User Experience from both Art and Science, drawing from her degrees in Psychology and Visual Communications. Martine has worked as an artist, educator, and consultant since 2005.

She stays active in the industry, teaching new developers at Eleven Fifty Academy, attending and speaking at conferences and meetups, and publishing the occasional blog. In 2015 Martine's children's book "Programming Languages ABC++" was published by Inedo, and in 2016 the Workbook Edition sold over 20,000 copies.

CINNUG

Tuesday February 27th, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Suganthi Giridharan presenting on fire base and Xamarin.

Fire Up Your Mobile App!

Have you ever had an idea spark that would make a great mobile app? But when confronted with managing the data, authentication, and hosting, it's all too easy to give up on building the next million dollar product.

**Firebase to the rescue! ** This session will take a look at a Codemash conference app built using Xamarin Forms for the front end and Firebase for the back end infrastructure. You'll see how the app uses Firebase to store and sync app data, authenticate users using Google and Twitter OAuth providers, track analytics, and monitor app performance all in one central place.

You will leave this session with an understanding of how to integrate Firebase with your mobile front end.

Let’s go build apps!
