Security is an enormous topic, and it’s really, really complicated. If you’re not careful, you’ll find yourself vulnerable to any number of attacks which you definitely don’t want to be on the receiving end of. This talk will give you just a taster of the vast array of things there is to know about security in modern web applications, such as writing secure PHP web applications and securing a Linux server. Whether you are writing anything beyond a basic brochure website, or even developing a complicated business web application, this talk will give you insights to some of the things you need to be aware of.

Interesting talk. Great to have some things repeated but also some new tricks. Thanks!

Nice overview of good practices in security and what to be thinking about when creating new code. I didn't really get a bit about timing attacks or how are they related or what are the implications. And it was a bit overtime so didn't hear the end :(
Would be cool to hear how security affects performance!

It was nice to hear you mentioning security on the server as well, I feel I missed that in a lot of other talks.

Good talk. Saw a lot of familiar items on the list and some new.
This was a very good starting point for those wanting to learn more about security.

Good talk about the basic concepts of security and best practices. For me this was a little too basic, but very well brought!

Very good talk, wasn't that much of a beginner talk (it actually dug deeper than the morning workshop about security, IMO), but was just what I needed. Very good explanation of the main concepts, and good explanation of details as well (the timing attack!). Learned quite some new stuff and solidified my grasp on the concepts I was already familiar with. Thanks!!
