It was a blast presenting at the first Prarie Dev Con. It was great to have so many attendees with a willingness and want to learn new things. As promised, here are the session materials:

I will be giving a talk on threat modeling at Calgary TechFest on March 21, 2009. The schedule/speaker list is starting to fill out and it should be another fun event. Hope to see you there!
I will be doing two talks at Victoria Code Camp this weekend
Passwords Are Dying – A talk about the problems with passwords, how they are currently attacked, and alternatives to password based authentication
Threat Modeling – Learn how to model your applications under different lenses to find security vulnerabilities and potential weaknesses in your application
More info on the Victoria Code Camp Site
Although I am sure not many graphics students read this blog I figured I would announce it anyways. I will be giving a talk to the digital media class from 4:00-6:00pm. Its an open format event so I am sure the topics will be quite varied.
Tonight I will be joining 4 other local presenters to talk on the SOLID principles. I will be talking on the Liskov Substitution Principle.
It’s at the usual time/place (6:00pm downstairs in the Milner Library).
Hope to see you there!
Well it is getting really close to that time of year again. I am talking about one of the greatest conferences ever…. DevTeach!
Some of the great things about DevTeach:
- Great size. There are enough people to make it a big conference but still small enough that you meet a lot of people
- Great speakers. I have been to DevTeach as an attendee three times now and I can not think of one talk that was disappointing
- Great tracks. Every year there are some great standard tracks like agile, architecture, web, .net, sql. There is also some specialized tracks that change from conference to conference. This time there is a life cycle and silverlight track.
- Too many choices. The problem I have at DevTeach is that I am usually torn between talks. While it is hard to choose it is great to see so much good content
- It is in Montreal! This is one of my favourite cities in the world. Great food, friendly people, lots to do, and lots of great pubs/clubs/and bars (a staple of any conference)
- Great swag for filling out evaluations
- Every attendee will get Visual Studio 2008 Pro, Expression Web 2 and Tech-Ed DEV set in their bag
- People. This is my favourite part of conferences is meeting new people and conversing about what they are doing. There are so many great people both speaking and attending that great conversations are bound to happen.
- Multinational. I like how DevTeach is a nice mix of speakers and attendees from Canada, the United States, and many other countries too. There are also some talks in French which I think is great to see!
- Flight and hotel discounts. You can get 10% off flying with Westjet and there is also a hotel discount.
This is one of those conferences that since I started going that I would not want to miss. I hope to see you there!
Thanks everyone for coming out to my security talk at the user group. I had a lot of fun doing a full fledged talk to the home town. As always if you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email.
Materials: Injection Attacks And Cryptography
As we did finish up a bit early I touched on partial trust out of a different demo.
Materials: Partial Trust
I will be presenting at the Edmonton .NET User Group tommorow night. My talk will be on common hacking vectors as well as protecting secrets via cryptographic techniques.
Date: Thursday, February 28th 2008
Location: Milner Public Library
Hope to see you there!
Here is the website and slides used in both talks (Cryptography So Easy A Goat Could Do It and Website Hacking 101 – SQL Injection Attacks and Cross Site Scripting). Both presentations used the same site and database so I have included everything as one bundle (including the slides).
