Hi Austin Noders!

We've got great talks for you this month! *Note, this month we're meeting on the 23rd instead of our regular 3rd Wed date*.

Feature Talk: Tristan Slominski – Delegation: the missing piece of authorization

Description: Online delegation of authority looks nothing like how we delegate authority in our every day lives. The prevalence of Access Control List (ACL) authorization pattern (list of permissions attached to a resource) has constrained many systems to centralized access control. While, for some highly sensitive use cases, centralization is desired, for many, the use of ACLs leads to overconstrained solutions. Come learn about capability-based authorization that enables decentralized delegation of authority, learn about membranes, and see what it all looks like in Node.js.

We've got open slots for Lightning Talks this month and next. If you have an idea to present, reach out and let us know!

We'll be at uShip this month. Thanks to uShip for hosting! It's going to be a great event!

See you there!

Matt on Slack!
