As our systems become more distributed and more connected, security has never been more important. The catalog of known exploits is vast. There are more vulnerabilities and pitfalls than any expert can understand. And yet, security is so important that it can not be left to experts.

Fortunately, all good practices flow from a small set of principles. These principles should be known by every programmer and every manager.

The Speaker(s)


Douglas Crockford

Douglas Crockford was born in the Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, but left when he was only six months old because it was just too damn cold. He is a registered voter. He turned his back on a promising career in television when he discovered computers. He has worked in learning systems, small business systems, office automation, games, interactive music, multimedia, location-based entertainment, social systems, and programming languages. He is the inventor of Tilton, the ugliest programming language that was not specifically designed to be an ugly programming language. He is best known for having discovered that there are good parts in JavaScript. This was the first important discovery of the 21st century.
