Serverless Authentication Strategies with Netlify Identity

A presentation at Serverless Chicago + Chicago NodeJS (April 2019) in in Chicago, IL, USA by Divya

Authentication is often a complex concept and integrating it into apps can require a lot of effort, especially for those not used to the mechanics of securing apps. In the past authentication used to be something reserved for the backend, but the frontend is more feature rich and authentication is now a necessary concept to understand when building a robust client-side application. In this talk, we will cover the various pieces that makeup authentication as well as strategies to integrate authentication, specifically Netlify Identity, seamlessly into your serverless workflows.
