Omaha .Net User Group November/December Meeting
Start Time: December 03 2015, 6:00 PM

Posted by mruwe at November 25 2015, 12:25 PM

Fellow .Net Users,

It’s almost Thanksgiving time and that means we only have one more .Net UG meeting for the 2015, but don’t fret, we have already secured all of our sponsors for 2016 and have a good start on our speakers. There will be much more .Net UG to come! My encouragement for those of you who are passionate about your software development jobs is to get involved and help the user group. Presenting is the natural option, but I’m still looking for a volunteer to help with the video production and Brian is looking for someone with ASP.Net MVC experience to help with the web site. Just email either of us if you’re interested.

Now, onto the meat of this message. The next .Net UG meeting will take place on Thursday December 3rd starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drink will be served 15-20 minutes before the start of the meeting.

Location:
Farm Credit Services of America

Topic:
If My CI/CD Teams have Time for Security, So Do Yours
Software development is speeding up; Waterfall to Agile to Continuous Integration to Continuous Deployment. Do we still have time for security? I say “Heck Ya!” But many development shops are unaware how to add security to their development process and will often use "security slows us down" as a reason to produce insecure code. This talk focuses on how to add security into a speedy development process while still remaining fast and responsive to customer requests.

Speaker:
Kevin Poniatowski – Security Trainer
Kevin travels the world in his role as a Senior Security Instructor for Security Innovation, teaching employees at an array of organizations about information and application security topics. Kevin entered the application security field in 2007 with Security Innovation, where he split time between application security course development and delivering instructor-led courses. He began his software career in 1996 working for more than a decade as an application developer in the defense industry.

Prior to joining Security Innovation, Kevin held a variety of positions with Tybrin Corporation where he accumulated nine years of full life-cycle development experience working on the development and QA efforts of navigation and flight planning software. Safety of flight was the primary responsibility, so the of writing robust and secure code was critical. In his last position, Kevin was responsible for the development and delivery of education modules to train software developers to write code using the Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS) framework. He fed course material with hands-on experience that he acquired creating, maintaining and debugging source code using C# .NET, MS Visual C++ 6.0, and Visual Basic. He was also a member of the Risk Assessment team.

Kevin held Software Engineer positions at several other companies including Mevatece Corporation and Vista-Chrome where he honed many of his debugging, code development and software QA skills. At both organizations, he developed several custom applications including a PDU (Protocol Data Units) logger using both TCP/IP and UDP broadcasts from remote weapons systems.
