PHP London March 2014

PHP London is a non-profit group to promote knowledge sharing and best practice amongst PHP developers and web development and business professionals in London. The main product right now is a regular PHP meetup, basically a monthly PHP PubCon. In order to attend all you need is an interest in PHP.


  • 7:00-8:00 - informal drinks, snacks and chat

  • 8:00-8:05 - welcome by executive committee & any group announcements

  • 8:05-9:00 - talk(s):

    • PHP: The Security Underperformer? - Marc Wickenden

      As an application security tester I've tested loads of different apps running all manner of languages and frameworks. The most critical issues I've come across have all been in PHP applications.

      In this talk I will explore why this might be. What are the common issues I see? Is PHP inherently less secure than other languages? Can we fix it? Does it even need fixing?

      Expect live demos and audience participation as we undertake our beer-fuelled quest for answers.

      Marc is an application security consultant and code lover. He is both a maker and a breaker of apps and loves helping developers understand how bad people think and teaching ways to stop them.

  • 9:00 onwards - more drinks, snack and chat
