Full Stack Talks

Deprecating the password: An alternative approach to authentication using email only and no passwords.
by Scott Motte

We should be evaluating whether the traditional username and password is the best form of authentication. I think there is a better way. I've open sourced something called Handshake.js that implements an email only authentication mechanism. 

Come see a talk on the strengths and weaknesses of this new approach as well as a live coded demo.

An Intro to RESTful Web Services 
by Jason Rawlins


As usual, snacks and beer will be provided by Ministry Centered Technologies, and there will be ample time after the talks to chat with fellow web professionals about all things design and development.

Finally, if you're interested in speaking at an upcoming Full Stack event, please post a message on the Meetup.com boards, or email us your talk idea at [masked].

    My second event... I'll definitely be back! Appreciated the compelling talks given. Deprecating the password... food for thought! And the RESTful API discussion couldn't have been more timely for me... where can I get the slides? I need those URLs so I can model my API well.
