This month we will have Ben Dechrai as a guest speaker. He is passing by Singapore and would love to present something to the local community. That's why we will have this month's meetup earlier in the month than usual.


07:00pm: Meet & Greet
While everyone arrives, we have the chance to chat and mingle.

07:30pm: "Why You Shouldn't Care About Security Abstract" by Ben Dechrai

API development is fun! But password security is boring. It's also harder than you'd think. Find out how to ramp up your development productivity, and concentrate on the core purpose of your product, by adding OAuth and OpenID Connect support, and leaving the identity and security to a dedicated identity management platform.

Ben Dechrai is a technologist with a staunch focus on security and privacy. This started at the age of 11, when he wrote software to stop his mum from breaking the family PC, and resulted in his working as a developer advocate for Auth0. He enjoys helping developers find the joy of experimentation, from ethical skulduggery to subversive automation, and can be found on Twitter and Instagram at @bendechrai.

08:15pm: "Introduction to Functional Programming in Python" by Chang HaiBin

We will discuss basic techniques of functional programming in Python, and demonstrate functional-style of writing code using sample problems from Project Euler.

Chang HaiBin is a data engineer working at a hedge fund. Previously he was a financial engineer at Numerical Technologies, and a business analyst at US-Mattress.
