Hackfest is proud to present “Secure Coding and Testing Webservices and Web Applications” with Jim Manico well known for is volunteering at OWASP foundation.

Students will learn how to code and verify secure web solutions. This course includes a combination of lecture, group discussion, web penetration testing demonstrations and group code reviews. As part of this course, we will explore the use of third-party security libraries and frameworks to speed and standardize secure development. We will highlight production quality API’s from various languages and frameworks that provide production quality and scalable security controls.
