Christchurch Agile Professionals Network: Kanban - Get things done

Do you, your team or even your organisation wish to explore and pursue an alternative path to agility? Those who feel overburdened and wish to find some respite to enable them to “get things done” with quality, improved speed, and predictability will find Kanban of interest.

With only 3 principals, Kanban is a very powerful tool that enables agility, without the cultural and organisational demands of Scrum.

Having recently attended the Kanban Professional Masterclass with David Anderson (the originator of the Kanban Method), Damian will give a basic introduction to Kanban and a variety of different Kanban board designs and styles that may be of interested to those who are getting started, together with those who are already using it.

Damian is currently working with a number of organisations using Kanban in their daily operations, together with teams within the technology sector delivering and supporting products and environments.

CHCH.JS: Intercepting Node.js requests, with express & async await

This month Natalia will take us through using node.js + express + typescript. In her demo of an api gateway for requesting multiple endpoints and assembling the result, she'll cover:
- how to setup a node.js service with express and typescript;
- how to use javascript promises (async await) to merge the results of multiple requests;
- how to debug (inspect) outgoing traffic with an http interceptor, using Charles proxy as an example.

As always there'll be delicious beer from downstairs and great discussions happening afterward.

New Zealand Python User Group - Christchurch: Christchurch Python Meetup

Our meetups are always first Tuesday of a month at the Catalyst IT office above Pomeroys Pub.

We usually have a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language. Some months we run team coding challenges (aka "dojos"). These will be announced beforehand.

If you have a question about Python on or are stuck with some Python project, feel free to bring it up at the meetup. There will be people around who will be happy to help.

Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm.

At the start and end of the meetup, an informal conversation takes place, usually over a pint of beer.

Do not hesitate to pass this information around to whomever you think may be interested to hear and discuss all things Python.

PS: NZPUG's Code of Conduct applies for our local meetups and the online meetup.com group. Please read it up in case you haven't yet https://nzpug.org/code-of-conduct/
