Security is probably one of the most important things that we as developers need to understand. Unfortunately, it is really hard to find good information that is logically presented. I am happy to report that Joe Stagner is doing a great series of webcasts to help answer these questions and more. The Digital Blackbelt webcast is designed to discuss security risks, vulnerabilities, and solutions from the software developer's perspective. Knowing Joe means this means lot of great real-life examples and security tips and tricks.

 

Definitely one to sign up for!
