I will be speaking to the Boston .Net Users Group in Waltham, MA (Microsoft offices) on July 14 at 6:30 pm. Also that night, Chris Bowen will be giving an introduction to Test Driven Development (TDD) using NUnit at 5:00pm.
Here is the schedule and topics:
July Meeting-MSFT Waltham
5:00 p.m.: Test Driven Development (Chris Bowen) Register
This session will review the principles of Test Driven Development (TDD) through code examples utilizing NUnit. This session will familiarize developers with the basic constructs of unit testing and the advantages of TDD. This presentation will provide an invaluable background for the forthcoming Visual Studio 2005 Team System
6:30 p.m.: Secure Coding: Best Practices (Robert Hurlbut) Register
Security is important to nearly every company, but security can never be an add-on to an existing product. Developers need to be aware of common security threats, and they need to follow best practices for developing secure code. This presentation will introduce security topics such as checking data input, buffer overruns, Cross-Site Scripting, SQL injection, and the Rule of Least Privilege. The best techniques for secure coding will also be demonstrated.
Update: The correct date for the next meeting is July 14, 2004.
