DetroitDevDay 2015

November 14, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

DetroitDevDay is a chance to sharpen your saw as a software developer. It’s a chance to take a day away from the daily work of creating code to hear about ways to build software that’s better, more reliable and generally something you can be proud to give to your customer. We’re not really trying to help with soft skills. That’s not because soft skills are not important (they are very important); it’s because there are already excellent conferences around that are aimed at helping people to improve their soft skills. So if you want to take a little time to sharpen your saw so you can make better software, we’d love to have you join us for the day!

WHEN: November 14, 2015
WHERE: Cobo Center, 1 Washington Boulevard, Detroit

J Wolfgang Goerlich will be presenting: Pickpocketing: Lessons Learned From Payment Apps and Wallets

When asked why he robbed banks, Willie Sutton famously answered “because that’s where the money is.” It is no surprise that criminals followed the money to online payment systems and digital wallets. This talk will look at several such crimes, analyzing application security failures at Starbucks, Apple, Google, and more. After each one, security architectural practices will be proposed. Your app may not be where the money is, but we can be sure that someone somewhere will try to break it. This talk will give you the street smarts to avoid the pickpocketers.
