General Data Protection Regulation, a developer's story by Michelangelo van Dam (https://twitter.com/dragonbe)

The GDPR is coming in May 2018 and now is the time to get started preparing for it. In this talk I describe a roadmap that everyone should define for their own situation and the steps that are required to become GDPR compliant. This is not legal advice, just best practices to get ready for the General Data Protection Regulation.

Speaker: Michelangelo van Dam works at in2it (http://in2.se/1Ku2TUm) as a professional PHP consultant assisting businesses to automate their development processes, improve their code quality and train their development teams. Michelangelo is also president of the PHP user group PHPBenelux (http://in2.se/1Ku2ZLO) where he and a team organizes monthly meetups, development events and an annual conference. He's a devoted member of the global PHP community and contributes to open-source projects, mainly PHP related.
