Day 46 - Second Day of Fullstack Fest

September 5, 2017 22:50 UTC Team ImpactDevs (WorldBrain - Verifying the Internet with Science) [2017]Subscribe to this teams's activities

Today we had a lot of interesting speakers, including my personal hero Kelsey Breneman :)
Some highlights of today:
-IOT & DDoS attacks with John Graham Cunningham: hackers are moving from networks attacks towards HTTP request hacks, by sending millions of requests at a time. Ways to prevent connected home devices include closing all unnecessary ports, installing security patches and updates
-IOT & Climate change: electrical grid depends on having secure and reliable energy generation at same asynchronous frequency (ex 60 hz in US). We can change energy use and behaviour having market for home batteries that can sell energy when there is a demand and supply gap. Connecting IOT to home batteries can help these exchanges in realitime
-Chaos Engineering: Make failure observable by implementing distributed tracing to understand what's happening to the system, and make it resilient by having Chaos Days where you purposely break part of the system and the team determines the cause and finds solution
