I've given a number of technical talks, focusing on Node.js, Ruby, and DevOps.
As professional developers, we /probably/ don’t deploy code directly to production and we /usually/ test things first. There’s a whole world of tools and best practices like Git Flow, Continuous Integration, and Review Apps to help us build and deploy our apps and websites... but what about the developer tools we use every day? This talk will focus on how to parallel some of these same best-practices when making developer tools and frameworks. Together we will build a CI/CD pipeline for publishing to packages to NPM.

This talk was inspired by a group of students learning to code in Seattle who were being taught tools like React and Angular, but struggling to learn how to deploy their sites using modern methods. Specifically, how to set up CI/CD (Continuous Integration + Continuous Deployment) and HTTPS.
Node.js' Async programming model allows us to emulate many types of advanced systems. In this talk, we will use node and redis to recreate 7 different types of background job systems, from queues to kafka.
