An Evening of Networking & Tech Talks, Presented by PowerToFly + Checkr

If you live in the San Francisco area and you are interested in attending this event, please email events@powertofly.com to be considered for an invite.

After a sold-out event with Checkr's engineering team last year, PowerToFly have re-teamed with Checkr to present another invite-only evening of tech talks and networking with an impressive roster of women tech leaders.

The event will take place on Tuesday, June 11th from 6pm to 9pm at Checkr's HQ, located at 120 Kearny Street, Suite 2400, San Francisco.


Agenda (subject to change)

  • 6:00pm - 6:25pm - Networking & Food
  • 6:25pm 6:30 - Kickoff with PowerToFly
  • 6:30pm - 6:40pm - Welcome message from Checkr's Co-founder & CTO Jonathan Perichon
  • 6:40pm - 7:20pm - Tech Talk featuring: Melissa Lau & Ben Jacobson
    • API & Communication
      • We have found some limitations in only using JSON-based RESTful APIs to communicate between services. Moving to gRPC has allowed us to better document interfaces and enforce stronger boundaries between services. In this session we will share the lessons we have learned while incorporating gRPC into our application, walkthrough setting up a new rails project with gRPC support, and how we plan to expand our usage of gRPC in the future.
  • 7:20pm - 7:30pm - Audience QA
  • 7:30pm - 8:00pm - Tech Talk featuring: Faye Cheng & Katrina Lee
    • SAML, SSO & You
      • Ever wonder what mechanics lie behind Single Sign-On (SSO)? How you can log into an application once, and find yourself automatically logged in when you access another? Here at Checkr, the Identity team is enabling SAML integrations with our partners to achieve just that. SAML is a standard protocol used by web browsers to enable SSO through the use of secure tokens. We'll discuss how SAML allows for a safe exchange of authentication and authorization data between parties, and how browsers can trust and protect your identity information across applications.
  • 8:00pm - 8:10pm - Audience QA
  • 8:10pm - 9:00pm Networking
