🎤 Security in the browser - Keeping the sandbox safe
Tommy Parnell - Senior Software Engineer

Today, cross site scripting attacks, remain a key place for hackers trying to gain private information of individuals. There are many attack vectors that still exist in browsers due to legacy compatibility, but there are features you can enable to prevent such issues. I'll be talking about the multitude of HTTP headers, and other mechanisms you can use to help prevent your customer's from having their information stolen, and how you can implement these mechanisms in common server frameworks such as ExpressJS.

Tommy “TerribleDev” Parnell is a Senior Software Engineer at Cargurus. He spends most of his time working on all things web performance. Prior to working at Cargurus, Tommy worked at Vistaprint for 7 years re-architecting legacy applications to modern cloud-native services. On his free time, he plays guitar and works on various open source projects.

🎤 The Life Changing Magic of Tidying JS

When developers live busy lives, sometimes the code starts piling up. Is your app starting to lose performance over time? Perhaps it could use a little tidying up! In this fun talk, I'll teach you how to apply the KonMari method to your JavaScript applications. I'll cover tree-shaking, code splitting, and some basic Webpack configuration. Together we will see how tidying up JS can make our whole life better.

Brian Chitester is a Front-End Developer at Drift. His side project is a Chinese character study app.
