Description

Algolia Search Party — Ain't Node-body Like You

The last Search Party before the summer break is upon us!

Before we pack our bags and hit the beach, we’ll be wrapping up the first half of the year in style on July 5th with a Search Party taking a look at all things Node.js.

Node.js has become an absolute pillar in companies' stacks over its relatively short life due to its flexibility, low learning curve and ease of implementation. From scrapers to servers, there are uses for Node.js just about everywhere.

With the recent release of Node.js v10 there’s a lot of exciting new aspects to the Node world that we think you’ll be interested in.

So, join us for three great talks at our Paris HQ followed by delicious food and drinks at the Algolia Search Bar ™

Speakers

Adrien Joly, Senior Software Engineer at Algolia

How to write automated tests for a Node.js codebase

Adrien is a Senior Software Engineer at Algolia, developing the web crawler of Site Search. During his talk, Adrien will demystify automated tests by 1/ telling how he started to appreciate writing them, 2/ showing examples of unit, integration and functional tests for a Node.js application, and 3/ sharing many best practices and tips about automated testing and continuous integration.


Ruben Bridgewater, Node.js Core Engineer at NearForm

Promises: the good and the bad parts

Ruben will be flying from Germany for the event. He's working at NearForm and is a very active Node.js contributer. He'll update us about the newest things in Node core in his talk.


Vladimir de Turckheim, ‎Node.js Lead Engineer at Sqreen

Node.js applicative DoS through NoSQL injection

Vladimir is an active contributor of the Node.js project especially in the Security Working Group. He has been publishing multiple articles regarding Node.js security and performance. Applicative Denia of Service are mostly known through Regexp abuse. Most people do not know that other applicative DoS can be exploited through diverse means. In this talk we will see how a malicious user can obtain a MongoDB injection and use it to prevent an application from responding.
