What we'll do

Welcome to our April event. We are going to have three interesting talks. Starting with Yair who will explain how to use WireMock to speed up and stabilize your testing environment. Later Lior will explain Why inheritance is a bold violation of the OO principles. In the main talk Guy Marom will deep dive into OAuth 2.0 and Keycloak integration

* Secure your app with Keycloak - Guy Marom *

OAuth 2.0 is an industry standard protocol for authorization, and OpenID Connect adds authentication on top of the protocol.
If you have ever used a Login with Facebook/Google/Github button then you’ve used OAuth and OpenID Connect.

In this talk we will learn to understand the protocol's uses and the different types of authentication flows. We will also take a look at Keycloak - an identity provider developed by RedHat that allows to easily integrate existing products with OAuth and OpenID.

* Real world mocks - Using WireMock to Stabilize and Speed Up Your Tests *

In a healthy codebase, you will normally find a test pyramid - lots of unit tests, fewer component tests and even less e2e tests. There’s a reason for this. The more complex the test, the more it is slower, fragile and a pain to maintain.

Integration tests that talk to the real world are a particular weak point in your CI pipeline. They are slow and susceptible to downtimes that are not under your control. I will show how we used Wiremock to improve the dependability of our tests using real-world “live” mocks.

* Why inheritance is a bold violation of the OO principles - Lior Bar-On *

For some unknown reason, Inheritance is commonly recognised as the core idea behind Object-Oriented Programming.
Actually, that is quite untrue. Inheritance is a bold violation of the most important ideas behind Object-Oriented programming, and better be avoided in many cases.
Lior would try to highlight this on this short session
