Making Security Simple for Developers

Level up your development skills with security and bug bounty hunting. Learn what you need to know to spot the most common security bugs like XSS and SQLi, to the more esoteric ones like Object Injection and Authorization Bypasses. This workshop will cover specific and broad concepts of security including examples specific to WordPress. These skills can be used for your own WordPress projects or you can use them to improve your development skillsets. Practice code review through open source security bug bounty hunting. In return, you will show your expertise in security and increase your value as a developer by having CVE (Common Vulnerability Enumeration) numbers associated to your name. All while making the WordPress or an open source ecosystem more secure in the process.
