Code Review for Security – Workshop

Imagine the day where you get an email from your CEO: “Our site has been hacked! Millions of user records have been leaked! And we’re being sued!”… Unfortunately, that situation appears to be quite common place in the modern world. In the past year alone LinkedIn, Sony, Zappos, Twitter, Apple, Yahoo and LastFM (and a lot more) have compromised, leaking over 100 million user records. How has this become common place? Developers traditionally haven’t focused on security (that’s someone else’s problem, right?)… Wrong! Security is everyone’s job!

Come and learn more about how to identify and fix security issues! In this workshop, we’ll cover the most dangerous and prevalent security vulnerabilities in PHP applications today. We’ll look at how those vulnerabilities work under the hood, and how to prevent them. Then, we’ll spend time reviewing actual code with actual vulnerabilities. Once we’ve identified a potential vulnerability, you will actually execute…

Migration Guide to Symfony 3.0 – Workshop

This three hour workshop will give you the keys to migrate your Symfony applications to Symfony 3.0. You will first learn how the Symfony Core Team ensures the backward compatibility between all Symfony versions since 2.3 and how they implemented a deprecation layer. This layer helps you identify usage of deprecated features in your code. During the workshop, you will learn how to update your Symfony applications codebases to make them ready for the upcoming Symfony 3.0 version at the end of this year.

Sprinkle in Some Go for Fun and Profit – Workshop

Service orientated architectures have been around for a while, but too often in the PHP community we try to make mega-applications that do everything.

The same codebase will handle our marketing website, user dashboard, the API, image processing, autocomplete endpoints, search logic and who knows what else. It becomes this huge bloated mess all built around whatever framework is popular that year then its a mess when we try to convert it later. And on top of that its mind numbingly slow!

Swap out some of the slower parts of your application with something a bit more speedy and fun. Like Go!
