  • GraphQL Security Testing Technical Workshop
    Zachary Conger

    We’ve all heard the buzz around pushing application security into the hands of developers, but if you’re like most companies, it has been hard to actually make this a reality. You aren’t alone – putting the culture, processes, and tooling in place to make this happen is tough – especially for sophisticated applications like those backed by GraphQL.

    In this hands-on technical session, StackHawk Senior DevOps Engineer, Zachary Conger, will walk through how to protect your GraphQL APIs from vulnerabilities using automated security testing. Get ready to roll-up your sleeves for automated AppSec testing.

  • React, TypeScript, and TDD
    Paul Everitt

    ReactJS is wildly popular and thus wildly supported. TypeScript is increasingly popular, and thus increasingly supported.

    The two together? Not as much. Given that they both change quickly, it's hard to find accurate learning materials.

    React+TypeScript, with JetBrains IDEs? That three-part combination is the topic of this series. We'll show a little about a lot. Meaning, the key steps to getting productive, in the IDE, for React projects using TypeScript. Along the way we'll show test-driven development and emphasize tips-and-tricks in the IDE.

  • Concurrent Rendering Adventures in React 18
    Maurice de Beijer

    With the release of React 18 we finally get the long awaited concurrent rendering. But how is that going to affect your application? What are the benefits of concurrent rendering in React? What do you need to do to switch to concurrent rendering when you upgrade to React 18? And what if you don’t want or can’t use concurrent rendering yet?

    There are some behavior changes you need to be aware of! In this workshop we will cover all of those subjects and more.

    Join me with your laptop in this interactive workshop. You will see how easy it is to switch to concurrent rendering in your React application. You will learn all about concurrent rendering, SuspenseList, the startTransition API and more.

  • Build Fullstack Apps in Record Time with Blitz.js

By far the biggest innovation of Blitz is the new "Zero-API" data layer that abstracts away the API so you don't have to mess with REST or GraphQL APIs!

  • Security Testing Automation for Developers on Every Build
    Bar Hofesh, Oliver Moradov

    As a developer, you need to deliver fast, and you simply don't have the time to constantly think about security. Still, if something goes wrong it's your job to fix it, but security testing blocks your automation, creates bottlenecks and just delays releases...but it doesn't have to...

    NeuraLegion's developer-first Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) scanner enables developers to detect, prioritise and remediate security issues EARLY, on every commit, with no false positives / alerts, without slowing you down.

    Join this workshop to learn different ways developers can access Nexploit & start scanning without leaving the terminal!

    Table of contents

    • What developer-first DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing) actually is and how it works
    • See where and how a modern, accurate dev-first DAST fits in the CI/CD
    • Integrate NeuraLegion's Nexploit scanner with GitHub Actions
    • Understand how modern applications, APIs and authentication mechanisms can be tested
    • Fork a repo, set up a pipeline, run security tests and look at the results

  • Inclusive UI in your React Apps
    Alyssa Nicoll, Kathryn Nanz

    So many brilliant developers are terrified when it comes to working on UI. In this talk, we will endeavor to ease some of the fears associated with styling on the web. We will also cover accessibility in your UI Components and go over some inclusive basics that are sadly not common knowledge.

    Then, we will help attendees put that learning into practice by demonstrating ways to customize and configure Storybook (a popular tool for building, testing, and maintaining component libraries) to support accessible component creation. Many people think of accessibility as something "extra" in the development process, but in this workshop, we'll show how to leverage Storybook's addons to naturally fit accessible development into your existing workflow.
