Our September meetup is going to be a good one that you don't want to miss. As always we'll have good food, beer, and conversations. If you have a short fire talk, come with code or demos and don't worry about slides. We're always interested in what the rest of the community is working on!

We're flying our special guest in from the west coast. This is Justin's second presentation at OWASP NoVa and we're excited about having him back again.


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.
