(This is the part 2 of the same topic from April. We couldn't finish it last time).

Porting scanner module from D7 to D8 - by Christian Crawford

Christian will explain the very complex undertaking that was his port of scanner module (see https://www.drupal.org/project/scanner) from D7 to D8. This will be a fantastic opportunity to see how non-trivial amount of code of high complexity should be rewritten for D8 with the right architecture.

A great way to learn how D8 approach should differ from D7 approach - for beginner as well as experienced Drupal developers.
-------------------------
No need to become a member of the meetup. Just show up. We don't need more members. We just need people who actually attend meetings. The meetup and information about it is open to all - members as well as non-members. And you can attend even before becoming a member.

Jacksonville SQL Server User Group (JSSUG)

When Developers Go Bad
Wednesday, June 19th 2019, 6:00PM
Keiser University
6430 Southpoint Pkwy
Jacksonville

Many times performance problems get blamed on the database. At the root many performance problems are database related; however, in many cases these are the result of coding practices. In this presentation I will show techniques for a DBA to spot some of these scenarios. I will also show how some of these are the result of default behavior exposed by .Net APIs and how to avoid said default behavior.

Speaker: Franklin Yamamoto - After spending a majority of his career as a performance tuning consultant, Franklin founded, SQLGrease - SAAS Performance Monitoring Software for SQL Server. Franklin resides in Bradenton, FL where he spends as much of his free time as possible on the water.

Sponsor: Signature Consultants

Everyone is welcome to join us. Free testing for the Amateur (Ham) Radio License will be at 2 PM and ending at 4PM, but the event is all weekend. https://www.facebook.com/events/2040884312874477/

Free testing for the Amateur(Ham) Radio License. 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.

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 camp out, a 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 (also called “hams”) are well known for our communications support in real disaster and post-disaster situations.

Keiser University

Jacksonville FL 32216

******PLEASE NOTE********
Due to renovation at the NLP Logix offices, this Meetup will be held just down the block at Keiser University!

This month, we're super excited to welcome Victor Li of the the Jacksonville Jaguars!

In this talk, we will take a look into how the Jacksonville Jaguars utilize data to better understand, grow, and engage with our fanbase through social media. We will go beyond the "likes" and "comments" and share how new metrics are constructed using a variety of statistical methods and machine learning techniques to evaluate and optimize social media strategy. We will also cover football-specific social media trends and how improving measurement accuracy of social media performance helps our corporate sponsors maximize their partnership with the Jaguars.

Some questions we will address:

How should we value different types of engagements (comments, clicks, shares)?
When are the best times to post content?
Do certain types of content perform better on one platform vs. another?
When should we air our live shows to optimize viewers?
How big of a boost do we get on social media after a win?

Victor C. Li grew up in sunny Los Angeles among traffic and taco trucks, raised by a computer scientist and a statistician - shocking the world when he became a data scientist. He froze (yet thrived) in Providence for his undergraduate years at Brown University where he studied statistics and was involved with sports analytics, opioid research, orchestral music, poker, and a brief stint in catering. After graduating, Victor moved to Jacksonville to work as an Advanced Analytics Developer for the Jaguars and after two years has almost gotten used to the humidity.

As usual, all are welcome and there will be beer, pizza, and awesome networking.

Tentative schedule:
5:30-6:00 Socializing and refreshments
6:00-7:00 Social Media Analytics & Casual Inference with the Jacksonville Jaguars
7:00-7:30 Closing remarks and questions

It’s no secret that unemployment rates across the U.S. are at record lows and continue to drop; leaving a smaller pool of qualified and available job seekers. In today's market, it’s imperative that companies are on top of their game to attract talent and move them through the hiring process quickly.

Register for Webinar: https://www.matrixres.com/event/creative-solutions-hiring-top-talent?semsource=nfameetup

Topics Include:
• The current state of the local labor market
• Common bottlenecks in the hiring process
• Practical steps to streamline your hiring process to properly evaluate top candidates in less time
• How to broaden your hiring requirements to get top quality talent that might have been overlooked
• Position your company’s work environment and benefits to match the needs of the candidate

Feel free to share with anyone else in your organization who might benefit. If you register but can't attend, we will send you a recording after the event.

This month join us for a mock group--panel interview! Interviews can be tough and intimidating. Unfortunately, the only practice we often get is when seeking a job. Instead, let's create an opportunity to hone those interview skills, and even focus on areas we'd like to improve.

Do you find...

white boarding a challenge?
have trouble answering technical questions?
find situational or behavioral questions intimidating?

Then this meetup is a must!

Here's out it will work:

Interviewees: You'll agree to provide your current resume and be interviewed publicly. You'll also let us know what level you consider your self (let's stick to junior or intermediate), and what areas you'd like to focus.

Interviewers: You'll agree to interview candidates by asking questions relevant to their resume, stated skill level and interview focus.

Observers: Maybe you don't want to play a role, but would like to be there and observe.

Feedback Panel: You'll have interviewed and hired developers professionally in the past. Your role will be to provide candidates (and even interviewers) valuable feedback so they can be even more prepared for the real interview.

We'll also have a moderator (me) to ensure the interviews don't get too uneasy. It will be live, and in front of a group--so expect a certain level of intimidation. What we won't have are hecklers, over-aggressive interviewers or gotcha questions. The goal is practicing those interview skills so we all rock them regardless of the role we're in.

So clean up those dusty resumes, prepare your interview questions and mark your calendars. It's sure to be a rewarding experience.

Last note: I have set a question for all attendees. Interviewees will be wide open, and only limited by time. Interviewers and Panel members will be limited in number and chosen judiciously to ensure a good experience.

Hope to see you there!
