• What I learned by solving 50 Advent of Code challenges in Rust - RustNation UK 2023

    In 2020 I started to be a bit more serious about learning Rust. After having read a few books and having done some coding challenges, I decided to start live-streaming my attempts to solve Advent of Code challenges using Rust. Fast forward to 2022 I completed 50 challenges and learned a lot about how to use Rust to solve specific programming challenges. In this talk, I’ll be sharing some common tips and tricks that I discovered while live-coding also thanks to the beautiful Rust community that gave me tons of suggestions! Some topics I’ll be covering in this talk: parsing input, data structures, error handling, iterators, performance, allocating and manipulating 2d matrices, etc.

  • Building an invite-only microsite with Next.js & Airtable - Global Summit for Node.js

    Imagine you are hosting a private event and you want to create a website to invite all your guests. Of course, you’d like to have an easy way to just share a URL with every guest and they should be able to access all the details of the event. Everyone else should not be allowed to see the page. Even nicer if the website is customized for every guest and if you could use the same website to collect information from the guests (who is coming and who is not). Ok, how do we build all of this? But, most importantly, how do we build it quickly? How do we keep it simple and possibly host it 100% for FREE? I had to do something like this recently so, in this talk, I am going to share my solution, which involves a React SPA (built with Next.js & Vercel) and AirTable as a backend! In the process, we are going to learn some tricks, like how to build a custom React Hook and how to protect our app from AirTable query injection (yes, it’s a thing)!

  • From Node.js to Design Patterns - BuildPiper

    A design pattern provides a general reusable solution for the common problems that occur in software design. The pattern typically shows relationships and interactions between classes or objects. The idea is to speed up the development process by providing well-tested, proven development/design paradigms. Design patterns come in three different categories. Creational patterns include the generation of object instances. Structure refers to how an object is made and how things behave and interact In this Webinar(Live Meetup) we will be covering - What is node js - When to use node js - Async I/O operations in node js - Advantages of Async/Await - Some interesting - async patterns - Performance comparison

  • Everything I know about S3 pre-signed URLs

    Almost every web application at some point needs a way to upload or download files… and no one seems to enjoy building reliable and scalable upload/download servers… and for good reasons too! In fact, you’ll probably need to manage long-running connections and handle files that can be quite large (i.e videos). If you are running a fully serverless backend using API Gateway and Lambda, you probably know that you are limited in terms of payload size and execution time, so things get even more complicated there. In all these cases you should consider offloading this problem to S3 by using S3 pre-signed URLs. Pre-signed URLs are a fantastic tool to handle file download and upload directly in S3 in a managed and scalable fashion. But all that glitters is not gold and S3 pre-signed URLs come with quite a few gotchas… So in this talk, we will explore some use cases, see some potential implementations of S3 pre-signed URLs and uncover some of the gotchas that I discovered while using them. By the end of this talk, you should know exactly when to use pre-signed URLs and how to avoid most of the many mistakes I made with them!

  • JavaScript Iteration Protocols - Workshop NodeConf EU 2022

    How many ways do you know to do iteration with JavaScript and Node.js? While, for loop, for...in, for..of, .map(), .forEach(), streams, iterators, etc! Yes, there are a lot of ways! But did you know that JavaScript has iteration protocols to standardise synchronous and even asynchronous iteration? In this workshop we will learn about these protocols and discover how to build iterators and iterable objects, both synchronous and asynchronous. We will learn about some common use cases for these protocols, explore generators and async generators (great tools for iteration) and finally discuss some hot tips, common pitfalls, and some (more or less successful) wild ideas!

  • How to send gzipped requests with boto3

    Most AWS APIs will have limits on the amount of data you can send in one request and sometimes you really need to send a lot of data! To try to maximise the amount of data you can send, while still staying within the limits, some APIs support sending gzip-compressed payloads. But how can you send a gzipped request when using the Python SDK for AWS (boto3)? Well, I needed to answer this question recently and it turned out not to be as easy as I anticipated… Let’s jump into this rabbit hole together and let’s find out the answer!

  • Unbundling the JavaScript module bundler - Road to Coderful

    The landscape of module bundlers has evolved significantly since the days you would manually copy-paste your libraries to create a package for your frontend app. Like many parts of the JS world, the evolution has happened somewhat haphazardly, and the pace of change can feel overwhelming. Has Webpack ever felt like magic to you? How well do you understand what’s really going on under the hood? In this talk, I will uncover the history of JS module bundlers and illustrate how they actually work. Once we have the basics down, I will dive deeper into some of the more advanced topics, such as bundle cache boost and resolving cycling dependencies. At the end of this session, you will have a much more profound understanding of what’s going on behind the scenes.
