Upcoming Conference Speaking

I’ll be speaking at two upcoming PHP-related events – all of the talks will be discussing PHP and general development security topics.

First up is ConFoo (Feb 25th-March 1st in Montreal, Canada) where I’ll be presenting two sessions:

  • Beyond the Basics: Security with PHP

    You’ve seen some of the basics of securing your application – validating input, filtering output and the like. Let me take you a step further into more advanced security in PHP. Protecting your application from things like XML injection, insecure sessions & upload issues can be tricky. This session is a how-to on keeping your app safe.

  • Writing Secure PHP Applications

    Being secure on the web is getting harder and harder – the attacks are happening more and more and we, as web app developers, have to respond. The session will share tips you can follow in your code to ensure that your app stays safe and some tips to help improve investigation and preventing your app from becoming the next statistic.

The next is php|tek 13 (Chicago, May 14th-17th) with, again, two sessions:

  • Top 10 Developer Security Misconceptions

    When it comes to security in development, there’s a lot of things developers have the wrong idea about – things like “I don’t have enough time” or “I don’t know enough to be effective.” Join me as a I run through the “top ten” of the list and help dispel them and make your life as a developer easier.

If you’re interested in the topics and want to drop in, be sure to stop off and say “hi”. I’m happy to talk your ear off about PHP and security…
