• Serverless In Action with GraphQL and more

    Google for Startups Campus

    We're happy to invite you to our event @ google for startups campus. 17:00-17:30 - Reception, Networking, Coffee&Cake. 17:30-18:30 -Serverless In Action with GraphQL by Assaf Gannon, Javascript Architect from Tikal. Serverless technologies and capabilities are here and are accessible now more than ever. The power of infinite scale and system capabilities has never been more accessible. This also affects traditional front end development as serverless technologies allow for easy construction of backend support for any frontend with ease and simplicity. In this talk, we will demonstrate how to build a fully functional Graphql endpoint for FE applications using Apollo Server and Client libraries, utilizing different cloud providers. We will also demonstrate the usage of Servless.com framework to set up the required infrastructure as code to simplify and support this setup. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=Serverless+In+Action+with+GraphQL 18:30-18:45 - Break : Coffee&cakes with Networking. 18:45-19:45 - Streaming Data Pipeline Using Google Managed and Serverless services by Haim Cohen, Backend Group Leader & Big Data Tech Lead from Tikal. Creating near real-time data pipeline for billions of events and terabytes of data can be a challenging task. How can we serve the requests, with low latency and persist them all in less than a second latency end-to-end? What are the do's and don'ts when rolling such a system to production and how to monitor the hundreds of components involved? Come to hear a real-life case of such a system. We will discuss the architecture, technologies, code, and DevOps concern of the streaming data pipeline we created for one of the top mobile apps companies.

  • The parts of JWT security nobody talks about

    Tikal's office

    17:00-17:30 - Reception, Networking, Coffee&Cake. 17:30-18:30 - The parts of JWT security nobody talks about by Philippe De Ryck, Founder of Pragmatic Web Security, Google Developer Expert. JSON Web Tokens (JWT) have become the de facto standard to transfer application claims between the client and the server. By design, they incorporate the use of signatures to ensure the integrity of the data. However, merely signing the data alone is not enough to guarantee security. In this talk, we zoom into the security properties of JWTs. After introducing the different signature schemes, we dive into the hard parts nobody talks about. How do you manage and identify the keys used for the signature? How do you handle key rotation? And what about encrypting JWTs? This talk answers all these questions. You will walk away with a set of best practices for adequately securing JWTs. Philippe De Ryck is the founder of Pragmatic Web Security, where he travels the world to train developers on web security and security engineering. He holds a Ph.D. in web security from KU Leuven. Google recognizes Philippe as a Google Developer Expert for his knowledge of web security and security in Angular applications. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=+Security+ 18:30-18:45 - Break : Coffee&cakes with Networking. 18:45-19:45 - Infrastructure fuzzing by Salo Shp, SRE Expert from Tikal. In this session We will cover the reason and methods hackers use to DDOS our production, and learn how to mitigate that threat by doing it ourselves as part of an overall Chaos Engineering methodology.

  • "Tales of a web-app architectureืด - Lecture & Beer

    A multiple-webapp architecture is a complex task which evolves over time. In this talk by Shahar Taite, Applications Team Leader and Full stack developer at 3DSignals, we will find out how a full stack developer can create one and keep improving it meeting a startup's needs over time. We will discuss how different aspects of the architecture meet different company needs over time, considering aspects such as scale, security, development cycle speed and developer experience. The talk will bring it down to earth and we will demonstrate how Shahar built it from the ground up step by step, iteratively. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=Tales+of+a+web-app+architecture Hope to see you all, Tikal Team #backend #devops

  • Modern javascript - declarative vs imperative showdown

    The javascript train does not seems to stops, and with the largest developer community ever to exist - github is exploding with new ideas and approaches. Javascript always been multi-paradigm language but there has been a bloom of new declarative libraries and techniques over the past few years, partly due to libraries like React and partly due to new syntax introduced into javascript. On this session In this we plan to discuss the difference between the imperative programming and declarative one, understand how write each and when to prefer one over the other. The session will be held by Gal Noy, a veteran fullstack Node.js developer and engineer at heart. The session would be followed by a review of a code base implemented with a multi-paradigm approach, for those who would like to run it locally please install Node.js (latest LTS), yarn and docker. ** To ensure your participation, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeZqsm9le0RHyiQ34lKi6X3jB3bfOFYQQ4cAD4iowUykBL8kA/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.801673747=Declarative+vs+imperative+design+in+JS This session is aimed to javascript developers that are familiar with Node.js and its ecosystem, most of the examples and code source would be Node.js vanilla oriented but all the knowledge and techniques would be applied with pure vanilla javascript, so the notions and techniques should be relevant to all javascript developers. #Frontend
