NodeJs, IoT and Azure Functions

IoT and Serverless are two very hot topics right now.  Come learn how these two areas come together so that you can build scalable systems in a fast modular way.  We will see how small, single purpose functions using Node.js can fit into an IoT architecture enabling you to be flexible as you design the system.  We will see what features Azure has to offer for IoT for a Node.js developer and then look at where Azure Functions using node.js fit into the picture to provide functionality like alerts, device management, and Cloud to Device communication.

James (@aspenwilder) works for Microsoft where he partners with developers to explore the latest technologies for the web and IoT. Prior to Microsoft, he worked in the web development space for 10+ years working with startups and enterprises to improve the way they do business through technology. James is a regular speaker at local and national conferences and blogs at jamessturtevant.com. When he isn’t practicing his software craft James can be found running through the woods, climbing mountains, or hiking with his daughters.

Intro to ES6 JavaScript

Getting Started with ES6 JavaScript

If you've programmed in JavaScript, you've likely been coding in ES5. But there's a new release in town: ES6. The ES6 release is a radical jump forward for the language. It's hailed for its readability, flexibility, and exciting new features that will make your code cleaner, more scalable, easier to read, faster, and more professional.

Using ES6 will impress your fellow coders and interviewers. It also gives you an edge in the web development industry, since it's used heavily in popular modern frameworks such as React.js, Angular 2, and Vue.js.

Through hands-on coding exercises, we'll use ES6 in practical, everyday situations and reformat old ES5 JavaScript to its nice new ES6 format. We'll also talk about ES7, a minor release that contains even more helpful features. If you haven’t learned ES6 yet, this is your chance.

Dates

This class takes place over the following dates:

Saturday, April 8th, 12:30 - 3:30 pm

Saturday, April 15th, 12:30 - 3:30 pm

Your payment registers you for the entire series.

Takeaways

• Learn ES6 syntax through hands-on coding exercises

• Work with the major new features of ES6 (including new variable types, Array helpers, arrow functions, string templates, generators, promises, classes, rest/spread operators, and more!)

• Convert legacy ES5 code into ES6, step by step

• Write organized, more professional JavaScript that's easier for other developers to read and understand

• Review ES7's two new features

• Discuss how to integrate ES6 into existing projects or start new ES6 projects from scratch

• Learn about tools that will help you and your team reinforce best JavaScript practices

• Never use a for loop again!

Prerequisites

A working understanding of JavaScript is required. You should be familiar with basic JavaScript syntax, functions, objects and arrays, conditionals, for and while loops, AJAX requests, and handling JSON responses.

If you have any questions about requirements, please post a comment or message the organizers. We're happy to help!

Note: All attendees are expected to abide by the Girl Develop It Code of Conduct.

Tech Requirements

Please bring the following to each class:

Laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux are all okay) and charger

A modern web browser such as Google Chrome

A text editor such as Atom or Sublime Text (both free; available for Mac, PC, and Linux)

Be sure to bring an ID, as well. You’ll need it to check in with the security guard once you arrive for each class.

Instructor

Liz Shaw is a developer who harnesses the power of CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Node.js, and fun JavaScript libraries such as ReactJS on a daily basis. She's a fan of fast sites, clean code, and mastering the latest and greatest coding techniques. She has developed sites for organizations including Roger Williams University, The PGA Tour, FOX Sports, and Tufts University. She is currently a Senior Front-End Web Developer at HubSpot, where she happily codes usable, sleek responsive web apps and sites. Her work has recently won Interactive Media Awards.

OWASP Rhode Island

Using Instrumentation & Sensors to drive Optimization in a App Sec Program

In our physical world, we have instrumentation all around us. Clocks tell us time, kitchen ovens tell us temperature, cars tell us speed, fuel level and even has onboard health diagnostics. At our homes, we have security alerts when someone trespasses our property or opens a door. However, in the world of software, we have very little visibility into what is going on inside the software. Our presenters will describe how instrumentation can be used to enable your software applications to both detect vulnerabilities and block attacks. Furthermore, they will demonstrate the insights offered by using instrumentation and why this approach can offer unique insights to your security program.

Bio: Jon Seidman has been a software developer for more than a decade. He has special interest in web related technologies and application security. He has a Master’s degree in computer science, and is a CISSP. He currently works for Contrast Security, where he evangelizes their technology.
