JWTs - what Ruby developers need to know

For the obvious reasons, Root Insurance has suspended in-person meetups at their offices. They've generously offered their Zoom setup to do a remote meetup, which we're excited to try out!

Download the Zoom client at if you don't already have it, and join us for a few fun talks and some properly socially distant networking!
