Meetup: Explore Virtual Worlds Designed by their Inhabitants

About the Talk: We are in the midst of a great migration into virtual worlds: as our virtual lives gain importance, how we design those experiences will affect us profoundly. This talk will describe the John's approach to designing virtual worlds where the residents are also the designers, creating the laws and rules of play in the virtual video game Eco, and how this approach yields benefits from education, to emergent stories, and to a shift in mindset that can affect how they think of the world around them. About the Speaker: John Krajewski is founder and CEO of Strange Loop Games, a studio focused on evolving the classroom by connecting entertainment and educational games. He is currently the designer of the US Department of Education funded ecology game 'Eco' and the forthcoming National Science Foundation funded 'Exo'. His background is the console games industry, having worked at EA and Midway prior to founding Strange Loop. After founding Strange Loop Games in 2009, he has led development on 6 titles including a suite of games for Amplify Education, and the Steam and Playstation Indie hit ‘Vessel’.

Targeting Your Career Change into Web Development

This month we will try something new: A talk and a panel discussion. We will meet at Optimism Brewing, and Seattle University School of New and Continuing Studies will sponsor drink tickets for all attendees. Join us for a presentation, a discussion, and free drinks! The presentation will be about trends and the direction of the industry. The world of web development changes rapidly, and over the past 10 years the practice of building websites has become a very different process. New roles have been created, old roles have shifted responsibilities, and the resources and tools we use to build websites have evolved and changed in many ways. Although we still need to begin with the “fundamentals” of web development, it’s more important than ever to push into more evolved techniques and approaches. Planning your career change to target the skills of tomorrow instead of the practices of yesterday is a crucial strategic step to make in order to be successful in landing a job. Developers come from a more diverse background than ever before, and industry is more open to non-traditional backgrounds, but we still need people who can do the job. Join us to explore, explain, and help sort out your options. We will also have a panel discussion: Navigating the Job Hunt as a Developer with a Non-Traditional Background. Getting hired as a developer with a non-traditional background can be challenging. Join us for a conversation with web development industry experts who will answer questions and offer advice for conducting a successful job hunt and landing a career-changing job.

Introduction to MS Visual Studio Team Services with Andrew Cook

Please join us for a talk from Andrew Cook about the many features Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services has to offer developers. We will hear a presentation and there will be time for Q&A afterward. Speaker Bio Andrew Cook is a software developer, speaker, and Paramedic with experience in the Microsoft Stack specializing in cloud application development. You can find more from Andrew on his blog: https://codingwithcookie.com/ . You can also find him on twitter: @codingwcookie (https://twitter.com/codingwcookie). Talk Description Years ago when deploying software you would have to follow a tedious multistep process. A process which would fail under the smallest of errors and inevitably there were errors. Luckily today there are tools to automate not old the deployment process but also the build process. This allows teams and individuals to setup and use continuous integration and continuous deployment. We’ll explore setting up a Git repository, automating builds and deployments from that repository, setting up project work and bug tracking, and creating load tests to measure performance. Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/user-guide/what-is-vsts) is a cloud service for collaborating on code development. It provides an integrated set of features that you access through your web browser or IDE client, including: Git repositories for source control of your code Build and release management to support continuous integration and delivery of your apps Agile tools to support planning and tracking your work, code defects, and issues using Kanban and Scrum methods A variety of tools to test your apps, including manual/exploratory testing, load testing, and continuous testing Highly customizable dashboards for sharing progress and trends Built-in wiki for sharing information with your team The SU Web Developers Meetup is sponsored by the Seattle University Web Development Certificate. This group is open to everyone who wishes to learn more about web development and grow or…
