"The World of Ruby on Rails Security"

You are not going to want to miss this one... next month we will be discussing "The World of Ruby on Rails Security" with Justin Collins.


Take a quick trip through the world of Ruby on Rails security! The journey will start with an overview of security features offered by the popular web framework, then detour through dangerous pitfalls and unsafe defaults, and finally end with suggestions for improving security in Rails apps and integrating improvements into the development process.


Justin Collins is a member of the application security team at Twitter and the primary author of Brakeman, as static analysis security tool for Ruby on Rails.

    If anyone left your car keys, we found a set on the floor in the back center of the room. Cat Miller at UberOffices has them and will be here for a bit longer. Thanks!
