Talk comments

This talk covered quite a depth of topics; addressing some of the most common security issues, and explaining how to detect and evaluate holes in your own software, including some tips that I had never considered before, such as the difference between failing safely and securely. It also sparked some interesting discussion which is always nice. :)

I really enjoyed this. Very entertaining, and an interesting parallel drawn between knitting and programming. It's quite a niche topic, but I learnt from this talk that there's things that knitters can learn from programmers, and programmers can learn from knitters.

Overall a confident delivery, and keep practising to iron out any little kinks (of which I can't think of any off the top of my head to be honest!) It's great to see Katy doing a talk, and she nailed it. I expect more great talks now ;)

Enjoyed this talk a lot. Finding out about php security is hard using google, so many different ideas and techniques. The talk gave a nice overview of what the different types of vulnerabilities are and how to fix them.
