“Who Says PHP Security Sucks?” Published in php|architect

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

You heard right – my first article in print is in the April 2009 issue of php|architect.

The title isn’t just a rhetorical question; I actually describe who would say such a thing about PHP security. I also explain what about this perception is distorted and what isn’t – and how the PHP community can accelerate its growth into a market where it’s just becoming a contender.

If you already read the article, please comment!

Crypto Your PHP

Friday, April 24th, 2009

I just gave a talk on PHP cryptography via webcast, as part of the free webcast series for the php|tek conference. Thanks to Keith Casey for the kind intro and for organizing the webcast series. I hope to see many of you at tek in May – I’ll submit an updated version of this talk for the php|tek Unconference.

A video recording will be posted on the webcast web page and at Blue Parabola, and the slides are here. Please feel free to ask questions and to leave any other feedback as comments to this post.
