Forgot Password? Yes I Did!
Every month, we hear about a new data breach and billions of user passwords are being shared as we speak. How can we stop this? There is a simple solution, let’s stop using passwords! From email links to biometrics, more and more technologies are available to help developers handle different types of credentials. During this presentation, the attendees will learn about some of the alternatives and how to implement them in the context of an OAuth flow.

Managing the flow of asynchronous operations in Node.js
We know that Javascript flow's is different comparing with another languages, such a Java, Python and etc. When we make started write async apps in Javascript some strange things happens, like a undefined values and unsynchronised results.
