"Big Data" Engineering with Node.js
by Jason Kim
When you think about data engineering, people usually think about using Java or Python as the primary language to work with. While they are fine languages to work with, I want to throw Node.js into the mix as a serious contender to get the job done. Node.js is performant enough to do some heavy lifting and has great NPM packages that help you develop fast. I wanted to share my experience of building data-intensive systems using Node.js.

Using Next.JS & Github to build static sites
by Evan Tahler
Next.js is a static & dynamic site rendering tool for websites based on React. We can use Next.js to flatten and build static sites for us using React. We can then upload these packs to Github Pages for a freely hosted website. This talk will focus less on the React part of things, and more on the "devops" tools we use to build and host the site - Next, Circle.CI, and Github Pages
This is how we build www.actionherojs.com, and have an open-souce example here https://github.com/actionhero/www.actionherojs.com

Browser Crypto APIs
by Jason Nutter
Did you know your web browser is capable of performing cryptographic operations, such as generating keys, encrypting and signing data, and more? In this talk, I'll give an overview of the browser crypto APIs, and showcase some practical scenarios by detailing how Microsoft is using these APIs to build more secure experiences for our customers.
