React eats the world! IoT in the Cloud! Securing Shared Secrets and Automation!

Wednesday 16 Aug 2017 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Hi Nodesters! We've got great talks this month! NOTE THE LOCATION at Shutterstock!!!*

We've got spots left to fill this month,  so please reach out and hop in front of the group!

Zach Caceres - React is Eating the World

You might know of React as a popular front-end web framework. But a crucial event in 2015 changed everything and sent React out from the browser and into the unlikeliest of places like comic books, TVs, design programs, music, games, and more! Zach uses a series of demos and rapid-fire code samples to make a deeper point about why React is so powerful ... and why React is eating the world.

Ben Taylor - Node + IoT: How to Build Harmonious Hardware in the Cloud

Node has many strengths that perfectly match what Internet of Things devices demand, including synchronization, intensive data streaming, and state monitoring across hundreds or thousands of connections. Ben will be diving into how his startup, Doorport, is optimizing Node as the backend of their building entry product and utilizing numerous modules to deliver a reliable system and experience for apartment dwellers.

Dane Schneider - Shared secrets: securing api keys and config from development to production

How secure are your Node app's api keys? Keys for critical services like payments, email, and infrastructure management can quickly turn dangerous if they end up in the wrong hands, yet many teams aren't as disciplined as they should be when it comes to controlling access. I'll cover the issues involved from both a security and developer experience perspective, compare a number of potential approaches, and introduce Envkey, a tool I built that attempts to make all of this a lot easier to deal with. 

Aori Nevo - App Setup Automation Using Node

Aori will give us a look at a custom cli tool, built on node, that exposes a set of command-line utilities for installing, initializing, building, and running apps. Do less and get more!

More Lightning Talks Spots Available! Reach out with topics to present!

***Note on security***: As always, please ensure your full name is listed on your Meetup profile, if you RSVP yes to join. Building security will need it to grant you access to the event.

We'll be at Shutterstock this month. Thanks to Shutterstock for hosting! It's going to be a great event!

See you there!
