Our meetup at LoHi Labs covering Web Application Security Related Vulnerabilities is tonight! LoHi Labs is located on the second floor at 1955 W 32nd Avenue - basically located above LoHi steak bar. We're also excited that DenverLAMP has surpassed 500 members! That's over 20% growth in 2012!
Our third meetup: web application security related vulnerabilities
The top web vulnerabilities of 2011 involved Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Information Leakage, Content Spoofing, Insufficient Authorization, SQL Injection, and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaws. We will cover these different types of vulnerabilities; what they mean, how they work and how you can test your websites to see if they are vulnerable.

The meetup will be presented by Chris Baril, who holds a Computer Science B.S. degree from the University of British Columbia and has been developing websites since the late 90s. For more information visit chrisbaril.com
Code Talent (www.code-talent.com) is sponsoring this meetup by providing the venue space. It will be held at the LoHi Labs, which is located on the second floor at 1955 W 32nd Avenue - basically located above LoHi steak bar. Show up between 6:00-6:30 to enjoy the free food and drinks while networking with other members! Any folks looking for website development positions should check out and contact Code Talent.
The New DenverLAMP.org codebase is going to live on a Public Git Repository!
Not only is the new website going to be built using Twitter Bootstrap...going to have more pages...but it's also going to live on a public Git repository that will allow members to create branches for new features!
We have been contacted by several companies looking to hire LAMP developers in the Denver area, so we've decided to add a DenverLAMP Job List to the new version of denverlamp.org that will be released soon. Is your company looking to fill a position? Please emails us at [address removed] with your job title and description.
Our future meetups: mobile and tablet css, php frameworks, and more
Bootstrap? Twitter? Why?
Depending on member interest, DenverLAMP also plans to cover the Bootstrap front-end toolkit next January at our meetup, which will most likely cover the Bootstrap 3.0 release (following the current project timeline).
What exactly is Bootstrap and why should you use it? The simplest answer: it could be the next 960 grid system alternative, which many/most front-end developers have used to create css-based layouts for the past few years. There are already dozens of Themes for Twitter Bootstrap available for free or for a small fee.
We are still looking into future venue locations, speakers and volunteers:
Do you know of a venue that could be interested in hosting one of our future meetups? Or are you interested in getting involved? Please email [address removed] and let us know about it!
