November meetup: JavaScript Security and Neural Networks

    Our November meetup will be held on Monday November 14th at Skills Matter CodeNode. Please remember to RSVP also at the Skills Matter site for this meetup, (

    Also a quick reminder to get your HalfStack tickets now. The venue has limited space and we're excited to have another great event this November!


    18:00: Meet and greet

    18:30: Let's talk security, by Dheeraj Joshi, Wingify

    19:15: Classifying numbers as odd or even with neural networks, by Matt Zeunert 

    20:00: Pub

    Speakers and Session details:

    Dheeraj Joshi: Dheeraj is a Front-end Artisan at Wingify. He is quite adept at writing JavaScript and an open source enthusiast. An apprentice in the PJ world and an avid multi-tasker, he can play table tennis with both his hands and pull up his pants at the same time. When he is not writing code, he spends time finding and reporting security vulnerabilities in web applications.

    Let's talk security:  Are you one of the growing startup or want to improve your application security? Yes, you heard it right, after this talk, you should be aware of the best practices to follow for tightening the security of your web applications. It’s important to understand a little better about why we sometimes need to slow down feature development and clean up a bit. We’ll have a hands-on demo with a vulnerable web application, and step by step discussion about the impact and necessary steps to mitigate them. Should be the most interesting part since you’ll see how attacker thinks to break in and how we (devs) should always try to be a step ahead of them and protect our app. 

    Matt Zeunert: A JavaScript developer currently working on dynamic code analysis tools.

    Classifying numbers as odd or even with neural networks: Neural networks are normally used to solve complex problems - but that makes them hard to understand. Instead, in this talk we’ll solve a simple problem using a neural network written in JavaScript.

    Future events:


    November 18, £110. Second annual one-day JS conference in a Shoreditch pub. Visit the HalfStack website for more details.

      Great informative talks. Learned some new tips on security and a good refresher on back propagation neural networks.
