Developer PMM

Currently working at Microsoft as a Developer Product Marketing Manager for Azure and working hard to provide growth and quality to the platform's core community of developers. I wear a lot of different hats and interface with a lot of people to ultimately drive the strategic vision of continuing to grow the developer ecosystem. I am empowered everyday to enable the devleoper community to build the tools and services that serve a diverse audience globally.

Mobile Developer

I enjoy diving into the mobile space on my free time. I currently co-organize the Montreal Mobile Developer group in Montreal along with three other amazing co-organizers.

Entrepeneur

Since I was young, I loved disassembling electronics and solving puzzles. Technology is much more than a passion for me. I have a natural need to create, imagine, and build. My mission is to enable others to embrace uncertainty since there is no linear path to success. To create their own path, their own opportunities, and their own success.

Tokens, applications, security, oh my!

Seems like all you hear about these days are Single Page Applications. Angular, React, Vue, Ember are transforming the way we think about the frontend. But what about securing these applications? This often tends to take a back seat to speed, animations and other cool features of these frameworks. Between cookies, tokens, keeping users authenticated, and handling resource access, securing these apps can be tricky - you may even feel like you need a second page (gasp!) for your authentication setup! Fear not, for the technology to create truly secure SPAs is there and I’ll show you how.
