StripeCon EU is always a great event to network, hang out and share knowledge with fellow Silverstripers.

Internetrix

In a world where cloud web applications are becoming increasingly common, building secure applications is now becoming a must-have for any project and not simply something designed to be marked off a to-do list at the end of a project. This talk covers a series of different security tips and tricks that can be easily incorporated into the development of any vanilla SilverStripe application. These recommended practices will protect against common web vulnerabilities and help prevent your application from getting easily hacked.

Derk Gortemaker
Twisted Bytes

Derk will guide you through the basics of setting up the development and deployment of a SilverStripe site. This workshop will go through using Vagrant and setting up Buddy.works and deploy to an Upcloud server. With the resulting setup and configuration you should be able to start making a website and host it on Upcloud. During the workshop Derk will explain how and why things are done. And probably some tricks that will make life better. This will use the TwistedBytes Vagrant box, so having Vagrant up and running will be a requirement.

What you'll learn: - how to use the most common hooks - how to compose the new context API - optimising sprawling UI by batching network requests You need little more than a basic understanding of React and JavaScript to learn something from this talk.
