Examples of successful talks and workshops from the previous editions:
Talk - The Developer's Guide to Data Modeling with Document Databases
Document databases enable an extremely flexible data model for faster and more iterative development. At the same time, however, the data model you design can seriously speed up or slow down your application. While flexibility is great in theory, it is not practical in reality!
If you’re wondering how to develop a data model with document databases (or if it is even necessary!), or wondering how to leverage its flexibility (rather than be hindered by it), wonder no more! In this session, we will:
- Examine a methodology that helps us develop a data model using document databases.
- Put the methodology we learn into practice by walking through a use case, phase-by-phase.
- Understand not only HOW to develop a model, but WHAT to model for, including the tradeoffs of each option.
At the end of this session, you’ll leave understanding the best practices for developing a document data model and be confident in your ability to continuously improve it as your application evolves!
Talk - Why GraphQL Is Perfect For Node.js Microservices
GraphQL and microservices architectures are perfectly compatible. You can use GraphQL as a data layer for these microservices and combine data from all these services into one universal API. This way, you can break the core of your services into different microservices while still providing one endpoint that your clients can interact with.
In this talk, we dive into GraphQL, microservices in Node.js, and why they are the perfect combination.
In this workshop, you will become the hacker and exploit vulnerabilities in packages that exist in the wild that might be part of your Node.js applications today.
We will also show you how to protect yourself from these threats by building up a pipeline and development workflow with security testing in mind.
This practical hands-on session will be fun and leave you with actionable takeaways on how to implement DevSecOps and prepare against the big bad world.
Workshop - Build your components library with Lerna
In this workshop we’ll learn how to build a simple monorepo and the different configurations of Lerna and this way, to start sharing code horizontally in our organization, paying attention to new developments.
