Last night's event, "Meet for Speed" presented by the Google mod_pagespeed team Josh Marantz, Bryan McQuade and Pat Meenan was well attended and it was a pleasure to work with Jonathan Klein of Wayfarer and the Boston Web Performance Meetup to bring this event to the developer community.
Announcing the May 14th 6:30PM Google Technical Users Group event.
We have a really cool event and a topic that every mobile developer needs to know. Chris Wysopal CTO of Veracode has agreed to speak on mobile security. We have the 300 seat briefing center at The Fidelity Center for Applied Technology, located at 245 Summer Street, Boston, adjacent to South Station.
TITLE:Defending Behind the Device: Mobile Application Risks
Risks to mobile devices are similar to those of traditional software applications and a result of insecure coding practices. However, mobile devices aren’t just small computers. They are designed around personal and communication functionality which makes the top mobile applications risks different from the top traditional computing risks and an easier opportunity for those with malicious intent.
Participants should be knowledgeable about traditional software vulnerabilities and threats. Vernacular and examples will be used showing flaws and vulnerabilities in lines of code, so attendees should be comfortable understanding these examples. Additionally, attendees should be familiar with the mobile application marketplace and have a basic understanding of mobile device security.
