An overview of how web developers can protect their applications, their businesses, but most importantly; their sanity.

It will include a brief overview of common mistakes made with web applications that could lead the developer, and/or others to a security faux pas. Some best practices to follow, and some real world examples of where I/others have screwed up.

Excellent use of code examples, stories and humour. Very informative and relates well to personal experience with good advice.
Would love sound effects, bubble animation on the text message conversation (not swipe!). Even more code or technical examples if you have them would be great.

Great Talk. Really like the example code (actually large enough to read!). Enjoyed the jokes and stories.

Fascinating take and emphasising well who is really the point of failure. Only thing I struggled with was understanding where we were in the narrative, given the initial breakdown of topics being discussed. Relatable anecdotes too!

Great talk with a touch of humour. Good examples a every day stories

Very informative. Funny in all the right places. Some pretty good lessons learned.

I thought the talk was very well thought out and it had a brilliant flow. The humour was spot on and it wasn't too intimidating for a wide audience. It covered key parts of general security and reminded us we all make human mistakes as developers, and gave us general guidelines to make sure we don't make basic mistakes (but if you do, rectify it and correct it!). Also very informative with questions.

Great talk, thanks Rob. Clear, informative, easy to follow and a good smattering of knowing humour yo keep me listening.

A good talk. Entertaining and funny to keep the audience engaged.

The reason for 4 rather than 5 is that I was a bit uncomfortable about the naming and shaming. I think for future talks you should keep the companies and individuals mentioned anonymous, unless they've explicitly given permission for you to use their names in that way. No one is perfect and we all make mistakes.

Other than that great talk and I'd love to see you speak again.
