How To Design A Sustainable Freelance/Contracting Career + Speedcoding Challenge
Ready to kickstart your freelance career or just getting started on your freelance journey? You’re in the right spot. Learn the tricks of the trade from the industry’s most experienced freelancers.
The independent talent movement is the future of work. If you’re considering leaving full-time employment for a career as a freelancer, now is the time to find your successful space in the independent talent workforce. More people are working freelance today than ever before, with the freelance marketplace now contributing $1.2 trillion to the US economy. Some of the most in-demand roles for freelancers right now are senior developers with professional experience in React, Python, Blockchain, QA, and Node.js.
This workshop will help you design a sustainable and profitable full-time (or part-time) freelancing/contracting career. We will give you tools, tips, best practices, and help you avoid common pitfalls.
During the Workshop break, we will be running a speed-coding challenge! At the end of the workshop, we will award a prize for the winner and display the leaderboard.
We will have you login to our portal and complete each challenge as fast as you can to earn points. Points are assigned based on difficulty and the speed at which you solve the tasks. In case you complete all tasks, you get extra points for the remaining time. You’ll see your score, ranking, and the leaderboard once you complete the challenge.
We will be giving away three Amazon Gift Cards ($200, $100, $75) for the top three winners.
Date & time: March 17, 16:00-18:00 CET. Remote.
Passwordless Auth to Servers: hands on with ASA
These days, you don't need a separate password for every website you log into. Yet thanks to tech debt and tradition, many DevOps professionals are still wrangling a host of SSH keys to access the servers where we sometimes need to be. With modern OAuth, a single login and second factor to prove your identity are enough to securely get you into every service that you're authorized to access. What if SSHing into servers was that easy? In this workshop, we'll use Okta's Advanced Server Access tool (formerly ScaleFT) to experience one way that the dream of sending SSH keys the way of the password has been realized.
- - First, we'll discuss how ASA works and when it's the right tool for the job. We'll walk through setting up a free trial Okta account to use ASA from, and configuring the ASA gateway and server on Linux servers. We'll then SSH into our hosts with the ASA clients without needing to supply an SSH key from our laptops. Finally, we'll review the audit logs of our SSH sessions to examine what commands were run.
- an email address
- a device capable of receiving SMSes or running the Okta Verify mobile app
- a couple of Linux servers of any OS supported for ASA (help.okta.com/asa/). Your servers can be Docker containers on your laptop or hosted in your favorite cloud.
If you've used SSH to access servers via the command line, and if you've created servers in Docker or any cloud, you'll have the background to follow along easily. If it's your first time in the command line or setting up machines, please pair on this workshop with a friend or colleague who can help you troubleshoot any issues with the underlying tools!
Day & time: March 18, 17:00-19:00 CET. Remote.
Azure Static Web Apps (SWA) with Azure DevOps
Azure Static Web Apps were launched earlier in 2021, and out of the box, they could integrate your existing repository and deploy your Static Web App from Azure DevOps. This workshop demonstrates how to publish an Azure Static Web App with Azure DevOps.
Day & time: March 21, 15:00-18:00 CET. Remote.
Tracking errors and slowdowns across JS applications using Sentry (webinar)
We'll go through setting up Sentry step-by-step to get visibility into our frontend and backend. Once integrated, we will track and triage errors + transactions surfaced by Sentry from our services to understand why/where/how errors and slowdowns occurred within our application code.
Day & time: March 21, 19:00-20:00 CET. Remote.
Bring Code Quality and Security to your CI/CD pipeline
In this workshop we will go through all the aspects and stages when integrating your project into Code Quality and Security Ecosystem. We will take a simple web-application as a starting point and create a CI pipeline triggering code quality monitoring for it.

At the end of the workshop you will be ready to enable such integration for your own projects.

- - Automatic analysis of the project from GitHub (SonarCloud with Autoscan)
- - Connected mode in IDE
- - Adding a GitHub action for an advanced configuration (adding coverage)
- - Reviewing Security Hotspots
- - Pull Request analysis
- - “Clean as You Code” approach
- - Other languages

Date & time: March 23, 16:00-18:00 CET. Remote.
A journey of the thousand binaries
In this workshop we will explore the advantages of having a robust, mature universal artifact repository manager at the heart of the software development cycle. We will explore the most important concerns when developing rich applications and adapting to a fast pacing market. In the past years big companies have benefited from techniques like AB testing to improve their products, increase traffic, improve UX experience and offer new functionality. This is only possible if there is a solid devops infrastructure in place with tools that provide among others, control, security, versioning and good annotation support. It’s not only about having the right tools but knowing how to use them to its full potential.
Day & time: March 23, 18:30-21:00 CET. Remote.
