Password Hashing in PHP Talk

Last week, I was at PHP North West. The conference was incredible to say the least. One of the best I've been to in a very long time. But to the point of this post, I did an unconference talk about password hashing in PHP. Since I had my camera with me, I also took video of it. So included in this post is both the slides from the talk, and the video of the talk. So, with no further adue:

Upcoming Presentations - Fall 2012

Well, I know it's been a while since my last post here. I've been keeping busy (but also working on some cool stuff for you all, when the time is right). I figured that it was worth while pointing out a few upcoming talks that I'm going to be giving and conferences that I'll be attending.

PHP North West

I'll be a regular attendee at the PHP North West 2012 conference in Manchester, UK on October 5th through the 7th. While I'm doing any scheduled talks, I've got a few lightning talks prepared for the unconference track. I'll also be participating in the Hackathon on Friday night leading a PHP Core project hack. So come find me and say hi!

True North PHP

I will also be speaking at the new True North PHP conference in Toronto, Canada on November 2nd and 3rd! I'll be giving two talks, one on Object Oriented Design. It's similar in concept to the Don't Be Stupid, Grasp Solid talk I gave at NYPHP, but drastically reworked. I'll also be giving a brand new talk entitled "Cryptography for the Average Developer". It's aimed at introducing the concepts of modern cryptography, and arming the average professional developer with enough knowledge to be safe (a daunting task for a 45 minute talk).

Tickets are still available for the True North PHP conference, and it's shaping up to be an awesome one! I'd highly suggest that you try to make it if possible!

I hope to see you there! If you do come to either conference, be sure to find me and say hi!
