The Easy Way to Microcontrollers

Carl Peto

I have spent 20 or 30 years working with all kinds of computer tech I could get my hands on. From big machines back in the 90s down to little shiny phones you hold in your hand nowadays. Writing iOS since pretty much the first iPhones, my day job is Swift fanatic with a dash of objective C and a side interest in "IoT". I'm currently working at a start up specialising in high tech IoT projects. And Arduino and Pi have been my side interest for ages. Half my flat is connected to one prototype or another.

How to Break into Your Application: A Live Hack with Simon Maple Part 1

Our main talk is with Simon Maple, an international speaker, JavaScript expert and Director of Developer Relations at Snyk. His session will take some of the most common vulnerabilities found in the JavaScript and Java eco-systems, breaks them down and shows how simple code can exploit them. We'll look at examples in the wild that have been exposed, some more famously than others, before showing you how to guard against these important security issues.
