Hi Austin Noders!

We've got a great Feature Talk this month, and Lightning Talks on the way!

Feature Talk: Wendy Kuhn – Nami: A serverless framework for consuming webhooks at scale

Description: When events occur in batches, a wave of webhooks may overwhelm consumers, resulting in dropped data. Always-on systems must be provisioned to handle worst-case scenarios, however, this is inefficient as these resources will be idling most of the time. Nami, an open-source framework built using Node.js, provides a simple command line interface for deploying a serverless architecture on AWS for consuming webhooks. It relies on the elastic scaling power of AWS Lambda Function as a Service (FaaS) to handle bursty traffic. The framework abstracts away the complexities of cloud infrastructure and the effort required to manually deploy, configure, and choreograph all of these services.

Taswar Bhatti: Using Hashicorp Vault for your secrets in Nodejs

Description: Connection Strings, Password, Tokens, Private keys, Certs and so on, if not properly managed, can end up in the wrong hands.
In this talk we will explore secrets management, demonstrate the risks, and discuss best practices for keeping secrets safe using Hashicorp Vault in your Node.js application. We will also go through some of the design aspects of using secrets in your docker container and orchestration solution in the cloud.

We'll be at Proof, downtown, this month. Parking and validation available! Thanks to Proof for hosting! It's going to be a great event!
