  2. Dave Ockwell-Jenner says:

    I couldn’t agree more! In fact, it sounds like we have such a similar message I’m beginning to think I may have a long-lost twin. You’re 100% correct in the thinking that developers (a critical mass, anyway) are *passionate* about delivering the most super-awesome++ code they can — they just want to know *how*.

  3. Security Ninja says:

    I found that everyone seemed to agree with that point, and the other points I made during the talk.

    Being blunt about it the things I covered in the talk aren’t rocket science but sometimes we (the “industry”) make it seem like it is. If you want developers to write secure code then teach them what they need to know, wrap that in processes that work, give them tools that actually work and empower them.

    I’m glad you like the presentation and it is always nice to see someone taking the time to say they liked it :)
