In this podcast, I talked about my work on the Node.js release group, and I discussed the work I do at Heroku to maintain the Node.js buildpacks.
Women Who Code Los Angeles Network is collaborating with Women Who Code NYC Network to celebrate Hacktoberfest 🎃 with a panel of open-source contributors and maintainers.
Buildpacks are the core of Heroku - they lower the operational burden of creating and maintaining application environments. Cloud Native Buildpacks combine Heroku’s seamless developer experience with modern container standards, making it easy to build Docker images from Node.js source code. In this talk, Node developers can learn how to perform both OS and application-level upgrades, create Docker images without Dockerfiles, and run containerized Node.js apps with little configuration. (Docker experience not required.)
Tech companies of all sizes have dropped the ball when it comes to the privacy of their users.

I’d like to walk through the pitfalls of some of the largest data breaches of the past few years, what we’ve learned from them and how engineering teams can avoid them going forward.
Ruby is a widely used language, popular for serving web pages and storing data. What about serving different types of clients? Is it possible to use Ruby to talk to other machines? I’m going to share my experiences integrating Ruby services with hardware, such as barcode scanners and Zebra printers.
