Tim Nash: Using Security Headers to help secure your site

From HSTS through to CSP and almost every acronym in between security headers, are simple HTTP Headers, sent with requests from your server to the browser but they can be a valuable piece in hardening sites if implemented correctly what’s more for most of them it’s simple to do. In this talk Tim going to go through various security headers explaining how and when to use them and some of the pitfalls. It’s a journey that will take us through HTTPS and into a world where we need to consider carefully what third party content is being used.

Daniel Martí: Publishing your Go package on NPM

JavaScript can be used practically anywhere these days. However, plenty of libraries are written in compiled languages, meaning that making use of them in environments like the browser can be very tricky.

This talk will show how to publish a simple Go package on NPM using GopherJS and a bit of glue code. It will also briefly show Go's future with JavaScript thanks to its improving WebAssembly support.
