What is a JSON Web Token (JWT) and why do you care? JWTs are a stateless, standardized way to represent user data. This talk will discuss why JWTs matter and the nuts and bolts of JWTs. We’ll also discuss how you might use a JWT in your Rails application. Dan Moore is a developer advocate for FusionAuth. He’s been using Ruby and Rails off and on since 2015. A former CTO, engineering manager and longtime developer, he's been writing software for (checks watch) over 20 years.
