The word "Accountability" has become taboo within Agile circles because companies use it as a weapon. But lack of accountability often invites ambiguity and failure to deliver valuable outcomes.
Come listen and discuss how leadership must change the meaning of accountability to establish an environment where the modern workforce can change their behaviors to become more accountable in this fast-paced, yet flexible world we live in today.

- Refreshments & Networking start at 5:30
- Discussion begins at 6

See you all there!

We are software developers who can dream big, beautiful, solutions that millions of users can appreciate. In reality, starting your career on a blockbuster application is unlikely for many of us, as glorious as it sounds. It becomes inevitable that you will at least consider freelancing/contracting for extra income, experience, or “exposure”.

Scott Anderson has been consulting for over five years and in this talk he will share with you how he gets clients, keeps them happy, and how to get paid while doing it.

The talk will share years of good and bad experiences in crafting long lasting relationships with clients and how to transform these relationships into successful products.

Welcoming All Jacksonville Game Developers!

Discord Chatgroup
Thursday, May 23rd 2019, 8:45PM

Hi crew,
My name is Bryan, & I'll be the event organizer for this going forward.
This is something that I was a part of w/ another group that was actually useful/helpful to some extent. Thought we'd try it here just to see how it goes. If nobody likes it, we can not have it.

Essentially, this is a support/stand-up chat group for those of us either currently int the throes of trying to develop a game, those interested in trying to start learning how to develop a game. or those that are just curious about what it takes to be a game developer here in Jax.

Attendance is OPTIONAL, but you're encouraged to come. Everybody has a different idea for their ideal game--don't be afraid to talk about it. It will
be just 45 minutes long, & officially end at around 9:30 PM(but if involved in a lively discussion, people are more than welcome to hang around). If you have to bug-out sooner, than don't feel bad. Life happens, & we're all aware of that.

RULES:
1. Absolutely, under no circumstances will there be any ridicule of someone's game idea or lack of progress in developing their current one. We all have lives we're trying to live (wife/girlfriend/significant other-kids-work-etc). This is designed to be completely free of that, & provide a place for aspiring developers to come & find refuge from the onslaught of the things that are hindering you from developing your ideal game.

2. Initially, everyone will have about 5 minutes to talk about their game, what they're planning to accomplish by/before the next meeting (or, depending on the work-life schedule that many of us have to contend w/). Obviously, you're going to get some feedback as to whether or not you should adjust the scope of your goals for the following week, but again, it's totally up to you if you choose to take that advice.

3. Respect gets respect. Disrespect will be shown the exit in a rapid manner. if you like an idea--ask the originator about it. Stealing an idea from another person w/o asking is HIGHLY discouraged.....

4. If you want to work w/ someone, we encourage you to do so. Members are more than welcome to use the Discord private message feature to inquire other members about collaborations. If you need help with something that you're working on & struggling w/, please, don't be afraid to ask for help from the other members who might have experience/background in what you're struggling w/.

We have a private server on Discord already set up. If interested, we can send you guys the link to it. I invite you guys that are interested to please come. There's no harm in at least checking it out.

Thanks

This month, we're excited to have David Quickstad and Matt Calderaro from Clearsense talking about SpliceMachine and Hadoop.

Clearsense is a scalable data platform for healthcare that enables real-time insights into clinical, operational, and financial metrics.

There will be a high level discussion of how SpliceMachine works followed by a discussion of the flavors of SpliceMachine - the free dockerized version and two cloud versions (AWS and Clearsense). There will then be a discussion of how Clearsense is implementing SpliceMachine with Hadoop and a few examples of data ingestion, SQL queries, and ML examples.

David Quickstad is the VP of Product Development and Delivery at Clearsense. Before that, David worked at Availity and the PGA Tour. David is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point with a Bachelors in Computer Science. Matt Calderaro is the Senior Performance Solutions Architect. Previously he worked as an Enterprise Architect at Bank of America. Matt is a graduate of Keiser University.

What is pair programming night? Glad you asked! It's a once-a-month meetup where you pair up with another developer during the development process. One takes the role of a driver while the other takes the role of a navigator.

Don't worry if you've never experienced it before, we'll have all the details. All you need is your laptop!

Don't have a project? Don't worry! Someone here will have one. We'll have a beginner and intermediate-level project outlined in case none of those interest you.

Everyone is welcome to join us.

ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June of each year, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.

Field Day is a picnic, a campout, practice for emergencies, an informal contest and, most of all, FUN!

It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, other groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities. It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar.

The contest part is simply to contact as many other stations as possible and to learn to operate our radio gear in abnormal situations and less than optimal conditions.

We use these same skills when we help with events such as marathons and bike-a-thons; fund- raisers such as walk-a-thons; celebrations such as parades; and exhibits at fairs, malls and museums — these are all large, preplanned, non-emergency activities.

But despite the development of very complex, modern communications systems — or maybe because they ARE so complex — ham radio has been called into action again and again to provide communications in crises when it really matters. Amateur Radio people (als o called “hams”) are well known for our communications support in real disaster and post -disaster situations.

Free testing for the Amateur(Ham) Radio License will be at 2 PM and ending at 4PM.

Pre-registrations appreciated. Walk-ins accepted. More information at www.JaxLaurel.com and https://www.facebook.com/jaxlaurelve.

Please make sure you register for a FRN prior to testing (directions at www.JaxLaurel.com). Bring a calculator and pencil with you. Study material available, please review the available resources at www.JaxLaurel.com.

Please help to drive awareness and recruit speakers and volunteers for the 2019 version of http://insiderdevtour.com on June 25, 2019, in Jacksonville, FL.

We are planning the local Insider Dev Tour in Jacksonville, FL for Tuesday, June 25, 2019.

The event (http://insiderdevtour.com/) is a “mini version” of Microsoft’s BUILD conference (http://build.microsoft.com) focusing on “M365” technologies (Windows, Office, …).

It is a one day, high-energy event, distilling and condensing what was new at BUILD for local audiences.

With a one hour keynote and talk lengths of 25 minutes, the content is on-topic and focused.

A few important facts:

Audience is anybody interested in software development trends and technologies on the Microsoft platform (focus on Windows and Office 365) It’s a day long free event. Time approximately 8:00 am-5:30 pm, with the intention to do talks from 9:00 am-5:15 pm. Event is initiated by Microsoft, but run by community volunteers worldwide
Quality content provided by Microsoft Corporation
Delivered by a mixture of local speakers and some Microsoft speakers
Event will be lightly branded (in the style of the http://insiderdevtour.com website)
No external sponsors or external branding, which reduces potential conflict of interest
Catered Food / Beverages
A Code of Conduct exists and will be enforced
Registration will start May 31, 2019.

You can help in various ways:

Help to recruit potential speaker candidates in your network, company, or in local communities and at events. This is very time sensitive
Help to recruit volunteers for registration, day of event logistics
Help to spread awareness in your communities and networks for attendance (starting in early May when the registration pages go up at http://insiderdevtour.com )

About speaking at the event:

Attached find an Excel list of sessions and abstracts that we want to cover, a few of them we MUST cover
Speakers please send us an email with the session numbers you believe you can cover, the level of comfort with the material, and your order of preference. If possible please indicate if you believe you can cover more than one session.
Speaker candidates will have to provide
- Speaker first name
- Speaker last name
- a short biography (2 – 4 sentences)
- photograph (.jpg) – 400x400 resolution or direct link to download such picture
- Twitter handle if applicable (@)
- other social links if applicable
… and permission to the event organizers and Microsoft to publish this, or contact us about information what we cannot publish

If we get enough speakers and space, we aim at trying to do two tracks in parallel in the afternoon
The session content will be provided by Microsoft: PowerPoint, Demos, Demo scripts and will be available in late May.
Speakers must commit to practice, including to strictly stay within the time limits
Great opportunity for new speakers to get their first “speaking wings” as the content will be prepared and provided
Students or young professionals are encouraged to reach out
Inexperienced speakers are welcome to speak and will benefit from doing example practice deliveries (video/Skype) – at least one being required
We specifically welcome speakers from communities who are less represented speaking at technology events and are committed to help those to succeed.
It is possible that a specific session does not happen because of us not being able to have two parallel tracks; or not getting enough speakers to support two full tracks. Rehearsal dinner tentative for June 24.

We can entertain a limited amount community content proposals, both technology or “soft skills” types of talks. The requirement is that all content that is not from Microsoft needs to be reviewed and approved by Microsoft Corp two weeks before the event.

If you have any questions, we will do our best to get them answered.
