OWASP EU Summit in Portugal: Monday

OWASPBoard

This week I’m in Portugal at the OWASP EU Summit ’08.

Just after I arrived on Monday I had the opportunity to talk about AJAX security and sprajax to a group of students at the 1 day OWASP event at the University of Algarve.  The slide deck was a shortened version of the one from when I presented at OWASP Montgomery.  I always enjoy speaking to University students because you have to work hard to frame the material in the appropriate context.  For example – how do you explain SQL injection to someone who has never written a database application?  How to explain PCI compliance to someone who has never worked inside an enterprise that takes credit cards?

I finally got some sleep Monday night after a day and a half of flights, airport wait time, presentations to University students and the conference kickoff.  This is shaping up to be a great event.  More to come.
