JWTs: What Rails Developers Need To Know

Thursday 17th September 6:30pm Online

What is a JSON Web Token (JWT) and why do you care? JWTs are a stateless, standardized way to represent user data. This talk will discuss why JWTs matter and the nuts and bolts of JWTs. We’ll also briefly discuss how you might use a JWT in your Rails application.
