Session1: 90K reasons why security is a must!

We all have focussed on best practices and code quality over the past years, but we seemed to forgot the most important aspect of the web: security.
This talk gives a good overview on your first-line of defence in your code, how to ensure that new exploits and hacking techniques are covered with tests and how you build solid web applications that secured enough to keep script kiddies and wanna-be hackers away. I will also give some tips what to do when you're company becomes victim of cyber crimes.

Session2: The Laravel PHP framework. It grows with you.

There are a lot of PHP frameworks these days, which makes, choosing one of them a daunting task.
I'll show you why I chose Laravel as my favourite PHP5.4+ MVC framework by highlighting the basic parts. Creating the skeleton using composer. Designing the database using migrations. Accessing it using the Eloquent ORM. Generating views through the blade templating engine, …
Once you discover how minimal, readable and fun your code can be, you will want to give it a try!

As usual we have lots of nice things to raffle, but you need to be present to win.
