As frontend developers, this is typically something we'd rather leave to others to take care of.In recent years we've seen a steady progression away from using cookies for sessions in favor of JWT (JSON Web Tokens) and similar strategies. "Private Mode" on iOS is not without it's peculiarities, and in a recent project, supporting it actually increased the risk of making the solution less secure.Tonight will involve a short history of the cookie, an introduction to the concept of JWT and stateless sessions, and the sharing of some hard-learned lessons.About the speakerBjörn Rixman is a software engineer at Min Doktor in Malmö.
