Debugging Node Services in Kubernetes With Linkerd 2.0
Node services are increasingly deployed by service owners in a Kubernetes cluster. While Kubernetes can automatically keep your service up in the event of node failure or a software crash, it doesn’t provide visibility into how your service is behaving.

In this talk, we will walk through how to monitor your service on Kubernetes and troubleshoot some common issues. This will be a live demo and no previous Kubernetes experience is required.

NodeJS Security Best Practices
Covering a few ways to make sure your next JavaScript project is the best you can make it. Security flaws and exploits are found constantly. Hackers don't have to be smart if you aren't. Bad actors are all over the web and make security an ever evolving puzzle with no single solution.

My goal is to leave you with concrete ways to improve future implementations of NodeJS and JavaScript. Code your next project with security in mind from the beginning.

About Tre' Grisby
IT Professional, who specializes in government infrastructure. Leveraging JavaScript where possible to increase productivity. Currently volunteering on the Origami project, which is an open source platform for creating modular JavaScript web apps. Origami reduces the time it takes to spin up web app projects that are 100% JavaScript code throughout.

Organizing a monthly East Bay meetup called Berkeley Javascript Dojo. That meetup is focused on creating a space for developers in the community to share and learn.

Open mic
Open mic time give attendees 2-3 minutes of time to talk to the entire group. This is the time to debut a new project, announce upcoming events or let people know they're hiring.
