Protecting Your Apps in Next.js

In the last couple of years, Next.js has drastically changed the way that we build websites. With these changes happening so quickly, ask yourself... Are you caught up on best practices for protecting your Next.js applications? In this talk, we'll explore authentication and authorization and how those two have changed with the evolution of different forms of content: Server Side Rendered (SSR), Static Site Generators (SSG), and Client Side Rendered (CSR). We'll also discuss how to track and validate users client-side and server-side using cookies, sessions, and JSON Web Tokens. Join this talk to make sure you're not behind the times when it comes to modern authentication in Next.js.
