OWASP Austin Chapter Meeting
March 31, 2020

When: Tuesday, March 31st @ 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM

Where: Online @ Zoom

Title: Secure Application Development (with Cloud)

Most of us have developed software in one form or the other over our careers. Have we paid attention to all domains of the software lifecycle? This is a walkthrough of those domains that should span development from cradle to grave of any software development lifecycle, with a focus on security. We will follow that by a quick demo of how CI/CD and DevSecOps practices can help us address these concerns for deployment to cloud providers like AWS and Azure in a hybrid cloud environment. Target audience: Developers, Architects, Security, Ops, and Software Managers. PreRequisite: Some level of understanding of Software Development Lifecycle, with passion to make your code safer and better.
