.NET Core Data Security : Hope is not a Strategy - Stephen Haunts

Not encrypting your data is a risky move and just relying on hope that you won't get hacked and compromised is not a strategy. As a software developer you have a duty to your employer to secure and protect their data. In this talk, you will learn how to use the .NET Framework to protect your data to

Modern Web Vulnerabilities 2020 - Erlend Oftedal

At NDC Security two years ago we looked at some of the lesser known web application vulnerabilities that were arising in popularity due to bug bounty programs. In this talk we will look at what has happened since then. We will discuss some recurring and some newer vulnerabilities that have surfaced

Common API Security Pitfalls - Philippe De Ryck

I always list this talk as an option, as it remains very popular at many conferences. It also draws a full room each time.

Optimizing string.Count all the way from LINQ to hardware accelerated vectorized instructions

This blog post is a brief introduction to the world of vectorized instructions in C#, and it is meant to be accessible for developers that have never really used them before on their own, just like I had not until today.

Solving Tricky Coordination Problems in Stateless .NET Services - Loris Cro

Developing modern, service-oriented architectures requires that our services become stateless to enable horizontal scalability. ASP.NET helps in doing so with IDistributedCache, but caching is only one of many new coordination problems.In this session I will present how to approach some coordination

As someone who grew up in the times of 1.44 MB floppy disks and 56 kbit modems, I’ve always liked small programs. I could fit many small programs on a floppy disk I carried with me.
