Gave it a bit more thought and asked my girlfriend. Some other possibilities: Tanya's Soup Kitchen and R Coffehouse (where Riverside Perk used to be), which also serves lunch fare.

Hey Wichita developers! I wanted to see if you'd be able to help me out with a short Wichita Business Journal feature. My question is: Are you using what's typically a slower period of the year to work on any "side projects" outside your day job? If yes, and you're willing to share publicly, please describe what you're working on here or by giving me a call — 266-6177.

Looking to interview some Wichita-area independent contractors in tech/design/marketing/creative for a WBJ feature. Hit me up if you'd like to talk about the freelance life.

Ok, so in celebration of a year of Code & Coffee, we're going to be meeting at The Donut Whole this week! We also have a free ticket to attend Startup Weekend! If you're interested in that, feel free to join us for a chance to win it!

So, I realized that last last week was actually the 1 year anniversary of Code & Coffee - Wichita! In celebration I was thinking that we should maybe meet at the Donut Whole this week. Does anyone have any input on that?

In addition to the opportunity that +Kenton Hansen mentioned, I had someone approach me today asking for a web developer. If you or anyone you know is interested in taking on what appears to be a fairly large project, let me know and I'll pass on your information! This is an opportunity for someone interested in doing contract work.

Thanks!

Are people going to be around this Thursday morning for C&C? (It's the fourth, in case you're wondering why I'm asking.)

Wichita-area Developers! Here is a survey to try to determine which afternoon we should start having an additional Code & Coffee meeting on. If you've been wanting to come to Code & Coffee but can't drag yourself out of bed at 7:00 AM, this survey is for you! Feel free to pass this on to anyone else that you think may be interested!
Drive
CodeAndCoffee_NewSessionSurveyRecently there has been interest expressed in having a Code & Coffee get-together that occurs mid-afternoon on a week day. This survey is to determine a date and time that works best for the most people. The current Code & Coffee meeting (Thursdays at 7:00 AM) will continue to occur, and everyone is welcome (nay, encouraged!) to come to both meetings! The options listed below are the times that I'm pretty sure I could make it to every meeting, ...

Hi Code & Coffee folks: I'm looking for some responses from local developers to this question for a Wichita Business Journal report:

At what age did you begin coding and/or developing games/apps/etc.?

Did some tinkering with web dev at 19. Switched to mostly desktop/mobile dev at about 23.

Webdev n00b here. 

I'm working on an iOS project that uses Simperium.com as the back-end. All is well so far, except that the password management after the initial creation/authentication is somewhat lacking.

They provide update and reset options, depending on whether the user remembers their password or not. I'm making the assumption that the "reset" would be used as a typical "email a reset url to the user" type scenario. 

https://simperium.com/docs/reference/http/#update
https://simperium.com/docs/reference/http/#reset_password

However, given that both currently require an admin API key (mine, that I don't want to distribute in the app for security reasons), I'm trying to keep the API key on my server and send the username/password to the server which then handles the appropriate curl calls to Simperium.

I'm looking for:
1) A way to generate auto-expiring URLs, so the user can reset their password through a non-persistent link in an email.
2) A way to pass the username/password securely to my server and then on to Simperium.
3) Any framework that could handle this for me.
4) ANY BETTER SUGGESTIONS on how to handle this.   :)

Do any of you have any ideas/recommendations/direction?

Thanks!

That was me.

I didn't want to maintain a database, so I've already opted for the "parameterized" encrypted/encoded option. The other consideration is that I have to send the username-to-be-reset from the phone to the server (so the auto-expiring nature of the URL is only half the battle). As such, I was going to need some encryption anyway, since I didn't want someone to be able to sniff the URL and nefariously reset their friend's username and password.

I have a couple files on my server already that will accept a parameterized username, as well as the functionality to handle the string creation and URL request from the phone. At this point, I just need to finish implementing the encryption.  :)  

Now the question is whether I want to do a shared-key with standard AES encryption, or if I want to go the PKI route, with the public key on the phone and the private key on the server. Played around with OpenSSL and key pairs last night, so we'll see how that goes. 

Still not sure how "secure" this really needs to be. If someone were to nefariously reset someone else's password, all they'd get access to where some shopping lists. Simple encryption to keep away prying eyes may be all that's really necessary, but I'm having fun learning.   :)

Hello friends. I know someone looking for a Web developer. They're wanting a ground up website redesign for Starting Block in Wichita, with shopping cart/store etc. They're a graphic designer wanting to use Dreamweaver, but I'm not sure how hard of a requirement that is. Email/message me if you're interested, and I'll get you connected. Thanks!
