Tim Stamp: Silly Sexy Scary Security
Security is everywhere, and undervaluing it can mean the quick demise of even a mid-sized business. This talk aims to promote some best practices and dispel a few myths than might otherwise get you into trouble.
Tim Stamp “Stampy” is a Senior Security Software Engineer with Rakuten Marketing, and when he’s not writing security related code, he’s developing web-tools for his startup business StampyCode. Stampy has spent over 10 years studying and working in sec-dev, in both the public and private sectors. Look for @StampyCode on Twitter/Facebook/Github/Google, or check out https://stampy.me
Rowan Collins: Contributing to the PHP Internals Community
I’ve been programming in PHP for over a decade, but recently I’ve been getting more involved in how the language itself is made. I’ve just had my first bug fix accepted, and proposed a language change which people will be voting on by the time of this meetup.
In this talk, I want to show how you too can do your bit to make the language better. I’ll explain who’s in charge, how you can get involved, and just enough about the code to get you curious.
Rowan Collins is a PHP Software Architect at Holiday Taxis, and one of the organizers of BrightonPHP. He spends far too much time on Stack Overflow, and occasionally gets round to blogging at http://rwec.co.uk/
