Short description:

As Colombians, we are proud of the diversity that exists in our country, including the many different shades of skin that can be found across our communities. Machine learning is quickly becoming a critical tool for developers to incorporate into their Node.js applications. Incorporating machine learning into Node.js applications comes with its own set of challenges and best practices. Join me as we explore the secrets to making the perfect arepa.

I'm from Colombia, South America. As Colombians, we are proud of the diversity that exists in our country, including the many different shades of skin that can be found across our communities. On the Caribbean coast and the Andes Mountains, we have a range of skin tones that reflect our unique histories and cultures.

Yes, I am Colombian and Latina. And with this clear, let's jump to the main theme of our presentation. As more and more applications become reliant on data-driven decision-making, machine learning is quickly becoming a critical tool for developers to incorporate into their applications. Node.js, with its speed, scalability and ease of use, has become a popular choice for building this type of applications. However, incorporating machine learning into Node.js applications comes with its own set of challenges and best practices.

So as Colombians and also Venezuelans, there is one thing that we all know and love, and that's arepas. In fact, according to the Colombian Academy of Gastronomy, these are 75 different varieties. So personally, I firmly believe that nothing can leave your mood like a warm, gooey, Colombian cheese arepa. That's why I'm excited to share with you some tips and best practices to help you make the perfect machine learning integration every time. And with these tips, your Node.js applications will be an absolute delight. We will say un encanto. So wherever you are, a seasoned pro or a beginner, join me as we explore the secrets to making the perfect arepa. Let's get started.

ESM Loaders: Enhancing Module Loading in Node.js
Native ESM support for Node.js was a chance for the Node.js project to release official support for enhancing the module loading experience, to enable use cases such as on the fly transpilation, module stubbing, support for loading modules from HTTP, and monitoring.
While CommonJS has support for all this, it was never officially supported and was done by hacking into the Node.js runtime code. ESM has fixed all this. We will look at the architecture of ESM loading in Node.js, and discuss the loader API that supports enhancing it. We will also look into advanced features such as loader chaining and off thread execution.

Out of the Box Node.js Diagnostics
In the early years of Node.js, diagnostics and debugging were considerable pain points. Modern versions of Node have improved considerably in these areas. Features like async stack traces, heap snapshots, and CPU profiling no longer require third party modules or modifications to application source code. This talk explores the various diagnostic features that have recently been built into Node.

Multithreaded Logging with Pino
Top Content
Almost every developer thinks that adding one more log line would not decrease the performance of their server... until logging becomes the biggest bottleneck for their systems! We created one of the fastest JSON loggers for Node.js: pino. One of our key decisions was to remove all "transport" to another process (or infrastructure): it reduced both CPU and memory consumption, removing any bottleneck from logging. However, this created friction and lowered the developer experience of using Pino and in-process transports is the most asked feature our user.In the upcoming version 7, we will solve this problem and increase throughput at the same time: we are introducing pino.transport() to start a worker thread that you can use to transfer your logs safely to other destinations, without sacrificing neither performance nor the developer experience.

Passwordless authentication may seem complex, but it is simple to add it to any app using the right tool.
We will enhance a full-stack JS application (Node.JS backend + React frontend) to authenticate users with OAuth (social login) and One Time Passwords (email), including:- User authentication - Managing user interactions, returning session / refresh JWTs- Session management and validation - Storing the session for subsequent client requests, validating / refreshing sessions
At the end of the workshop, we will also touch on another approach to code authentication using frontend Descope Flows (drag-and-drop workflows), while keeping only session validation in the backend. With this, we will also show how easy it is to enable biometrics and other passwordless authentication methods.
