Wasn't practical enough

This was a massive, massive amount of high-density content condensed down into a one-hour talk. I loved the presenter's advice to download the slides and click through on the various resource URL's that he presented. That allowed him to quickly go through a wide swath of security issues without getting bogged down, allowing the viewer to dig in as necessary. Considering how broad of an issue web security is, I feel that's the only way to address the topic in breadth.

This talk was great. Trying to cover such a broad topic such as application security in an hour is a huge undertaking, especially with a wide range of audience member experience. Chris did a great job explaining complex concepts in a way even a beginner could understand, without leaving out the technical details and mitigations/remediations that an intermediate can take action on. His slides provide a treasure trove of information for later use, and i hope every attendee takes the time to go through the links he included. He’s a fun and relaxed speaker, and I look forward to future talks from him.
