Like building API services? Like pirating things? Let’s do both!

In this talk I’ll will walk you through building and securing an API service that serves up the hottest 100 torrents on the web. You’ll learn how to scrape the world’s most popular torrent website, expose this data as a public API service using Heroku, and secure this API service using Stormpath.

I’ll also answer all sorts of industry questions, and share the story of how I got fired from my first job =)
