Hi Nodesters! We've got great talks this month! NOTE THE LOCATION at Shutterstock!!!*

Larry Salibra - Blockchain Powered Decentralized Applications with Blockstack

Blockstack is a platform for decentralized, server-less applications.

Building on Blockstack starts with single-page applications built in Javascript that are downloaded onto user devices. Developers plug into blockstack.js, which provides APIs for authenticating the user, grabbing application data from the user, and storing new application data with the user (encrypted and backed up to cloud storage). The blockchain is used to maintain cross-application identity, securely mapping user IDs to usernames, public keys, and data storage URIs. Developers don’t have to worry about running servers, maintaining databases, or building out user management systems making decentralized applications easier to build than their traditional counterparts.

Suz Hinton - Designing Cloud Based Mobile Architecture for Hardware

Controlling hardware and creating IoT scenarios is now easier than ever thanks to the mobile web. This talk will demystify the industry jargon and show how to use NodeJS and a simple mobile web app to create a custom IoT project.

Kevin Scott - Higher Order Components in React Native

Most React Native apps need to respond to a variety of changes, such as network connectivity issues and foreground/background transitions. Higher order components provide an elegant way of responding to these events. Kevin will discuss strategies for building higher order components on mobile.
