Improve Your App Performance With Background Jobs
This talk offers a gentle introduction to a new paradigm of durable workflows by walking the audience through a common use case: user onboarding email campaign. I’ll show how the DIY approaches tend to be slow and unreliable — or require significant investment of resources.

Bring Node.js into your browser with WebContainers
In this talk, I'd love to inform and inspire the community to push the limitations of web development running Node.js inside the browser. I will cover how and why we developed WebContainers, what our roadblocks and limitations were and are, how we've worked with the community to make the technology better and what has already been enabled and built with WebContainers.
