August Edition, Sydney Serverless [Meetup]
Alibaba Cloud have kindly invited us to their Castlereagh Street offices in between Martin Place and Wynyard stations.
1st speaker: Ben Dechrai, Auth0
A token walks into a SPA
Securing SPAs isn’t as straight forward as a traditional web application. The code is there for all to see. Cookies and local storage aren’t 100% safe. Where do we put the login forms? And what if the user refreshes?!
Learn everything you need to know about JSON Web Tokens, and maybe even some things you don’t! Keep user credentials safe, while still communicating effectively with APIs.
Ben Dechrai is a technologist with a strong focus on security and privacy. At 11 years old he wrote software to stop his parents from breaking the family PC, and now he works as a developer advocate for Auth0. He enjoys helping developers find the joy of problem solving and experimentation, and can be found on Twitter and Instagram at @bendechrai.
2nd Speaker: Alberto Roura
Alibaba Cloud MVP, works as DevOps Technical Lead at Studio None, Brisbane, helping SME companies realise how the cloud can help in their daily life.
Alberto is ACP certified and writes in the official blog as Tech Writer. He will introduce Alibaba Cloud serverless platform with a real product developed on the Chinese provider.
3rd Speaker: Rich Buggy
In this lightning talk Rich will demo how to build an AWS SAM application written in TypeScript using Webpack and aws-sam-webpack-plugin. This replaces the “sam build” step for SAM CLI users while maintaining compatibility with SAM CLI for packaging/deployment and SAM Local. The advantages of using Webpack and this plugin include:
- Supports TypeScript and Babel
- Tree shaking to remove unused code
- Conditionally include the aws-sdk for SAM Local
- Automatic rebuilding when changes are saved
- Automatic creation of VS Code debugging configuration for your Lambda
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
