This month, we will be having two sessions!

Session One: Content Security Policies: Let’s Break Stuff with Matt Brunt (https://twitter.com/brunty)

Content Security Policies are another tool we should have in our security toolbelt to help protect users of our sites. In this session you’ll learn what they are, why they’re needed, how they work and the limitations on what they can & cannot do to protect users.

You’ll see a demo of attacks a CSP will block, you’ll see a site broken by a CSP, show what the different CSP directives & options will do and be introduced to some of the tools available to help with implementing a CSP on your sites!

Session Two:
Serving PHP Happily with Jenny Wong (https://twitter.com/miss_jwo)

The most common question or comment from PHP developers is:

“When will WordPress increase their minimum PHP version?”

In this talk Jenny will be sharing the work that has been happening to do just that. She will talk about the work being done with hosting providers, about plugin support, project Serve Happy and what still needs to happen before WordPress drops PHP 5.2 support.

Come along to this talk if you want to find out what’s on the cards for this aging question and how you can help.
