Very insightful.

So many times I've seen developers making the simplest mistakes. Very good security overview. Definitely need to have the hacker mentality when writing good code!!

Great talk. No prevarication or magic. The only reason this isn’t a 5/5 is due to the bad advice; “don’t use exec/eval”. Amateur!

This was very insightful. Thanks for the awesome talk.

I am always so concerned about these factors and usually things clients are not aware of, leaving all the responsibility to fall on me! So much to learn here and thank heavens for people in the know, who demonstrate factually and articulately the level of lockdown that is easily reached for further peace of mind! Prison Break? Not with this info!

Brilliant talk!
