So you're building an API? Have you thought about how you're going to secure it to keep the data of your users safe?
It doesn't matter if it is REST, SOAP, or something modern like GraphQL, security is often overlooked or an after-thought during development. Do you encrypt your data in the database and if so, which data should be encrypted? Do you limit who has access to the data through API endpoints and query-able fields and if so, are you using something like JSON Web Tokens (JWT), OAuth, or something else? There's a lot to consider for API security, far beyond the points listed here.
In this session, we'll explore five (5) key components that you can apply in your project to strengthen the security of your API. In the process we'll be using the Go programming language (Golang) and see live demos on how the various techniques can be applied. We'll even see how they were used in the secure file sharing service ybits.io.

In this talk we will discuss best practices in continuous integration and deployment techniques when committing code to GIT and deploying to AWS Lambda by using webhooks and AWS CodePipeline. Additionally, we will discuss how we can use this technique to adopt a developer hands off approach to code deployment, allowing the developers to write more code and features, and worry less about deploying.

Making games for mobile and desktop is not as complicated as it once was. You don't need to be a great designer nor do you need to be a great programmer to create a truly amazing and enjoyable game.
With the availability of game development frameworks, you can build cross-platform games, in most circumstances for free. Some of the popular game development frameworks include:
- Unity with the C# programming language
- Unreal Engine with the C++ programming language
In this session we'll explore some of the basics behind creating games with the Unity game development framework and the C# programming language. We'll use free media assets from the Unity Asset Store when building a game.
