NodeJS Module Tutorial: A New Series

Recently at work we’ve been busy working on a number of security projects. One of the key projects is having our user directory accessible universally which means LDAP. So we’ve undertaken moving our “Directory of Truth” from Okta to JumpCloud. While Okta provides a good product, JumpCloud provides LDAP-as-a-Service (and RADIUS-as-a-service) which has worked very well in my testing so far. What does this have to do with writing a...

Why Slack when you can Rocket.chat?

Everyone knows that Slack is the current darling of the chat world. This is especially true in the high-tech scene as it seems like everyone is using Slack. It quickly eclipsed 6 year old HipChat with a huge suite of fancy new features and a shiny interface. The 14 teams I’m a member of can attest to Slack having also taken the place of IRC for many. So why isn’t...
