+ Making your test suite better, faster, stronger
~ Tim Macdonald
No one likes a slow test suite. Tim is going to show you a few things you might be able to implement on your existing projects to improve the speed of your test suite. We are gonna start off with a real test suite and incrementally make improvements to get it running faster, all done live showing improvements each step of the way. We will also discuss what impacts different parts of the framework have on your test suite and do a dive into the Laravel TestCase and what is hidden under the hood.

+ Why You Shouldn't Care About Security
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. A live demo shows how simple this can be.
~ 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 evangelist 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.
