Once there was the tag, but content distributors decided it wasn't enough. They wanted more - more power, more protection, more control, more features. So, Encrypted Media Extensions were born & Digital Rights Management appeared in our browsers.
In this talk, we'll explore the technical details behind Encrypted Media Extension (EME), Content Decryption Modules (CDM) like Widevine, and the foundation of Web Digital Rights Management (DRM). How? By reverse engineering Netflix and building our own personal Netflix video player!

Sebastian works as a “Specialist Senior Manager Software Developer” at Deutsche Telekom, after some time developing backend applications with Java and PHP he became a citizen of the JavaScript world. Recently he´s getting his hands dirty with Python and Rust. For the last seven years Sebastian tries to improve our lives, working on Deutsche Telekoms Smart Home platform Qivicon.

Have you ever made an eCommerce site using a static site generator? Marcus will show patterns around using headless eCommerce backends with static site generators. In this context, he will touch on the benefits of static sites and microservice backends interconnected via the frontend.
While there will not be a setup you can take into production today this talk is supposed to be an outlook on a possible evolution of eCommerce sites and the web platform in general.

Marcus is a freelance web & systems engineer, coach and consultant. His experience is gathered by making prototypes and experimenting with the whole web app stack. He is a heavy user of Typescript, Golang, and Containers and likes to automate all the things.
