Hello, dear BJUG friends! On Wednesday, November 13th, the Bucharest JUG & Incremental Community Meetup are happy to welcome again a special guest: Philippe De Ryck, Google Developer Expert on Web Technologies.
We'll spend a nice time with 2 interesting talks:

Talk #1: Test Driven Development and how it gives us confidence in our code
Speaker: Aurelian Apostol, Senior Backend Developer @ Deutsche Bank
Abstract: TDD is a process that relies on the repetition of a very short development cycle. It is based on the test-first concept of extreme programming (XP) that encourages simple design with a high-level of confidence. The procedure that drives this cycle is called Red-Green-Refactor.

Talk #2:
Speaker: Philippe De Ryck, Google Developer Expert on Web Technologies and Secure Coding Instructor @ Pragmatic Web Security
Title: Common API security pitfalls
Abstract: The shift towards an API landscape indicates a significant evolution in the way we build applications. The rise of JavaScript and mobile applications have sparked an explosion of easily-accessible REST APIs. But how do you protect access to your API? Which security aspects are no longer relevant? Which security features are an absolutely must-have, and which additional security measures do you need to take into account?
These are hard questions, as evidenced by the deployment of numerous insecure APIs. Attend this session to find out about common API security pitfalls, that often result in compromised user accounts and unauthorized access to your data. We expose the problem that lies at the root of each of these pitfalls, and offer actionable advice to address these security problems. After this session, you will know how to assess the security of your APIs, and the best practices to improve them towards the future.
