Lets start from the end… It was a great experiance to meet wonerful, smart (web) developers both in London and Tel Aviv. We had 80+ developers in the London event and 130+ developers in Tel Aviv. Like any good event – we started with a good cup of HTML5 coffee and some special HTML5 cake.
After the coffee and some food we got to the ‘talking’ part which went very well. In London we had the pleasure to have Alex Russell who spoke about Chrome Frame (link to his great presentation is in the bottom of this post). In Tel Aviv day we had two external experts: Nimrod Luria and Ron Reiter. Nimrod gave a talk about HTML5 security issues and how to use the best parctices in order to avoid them. Few examples where:
- Hacking Facebook with HTML5 using Cross-Origin Resource Sharing.
- Web sockets (open ports that listen to in bound connections)
- Good old ‘data cleaning’ and data validation.
- Client side injections to local databases.
- XSS by using encoding and new formats that are supported.
Ron gave a talk about backbone.js and how to leverage some frameworks and tools in order to build moden mobile web apps.
Here are the talks (with their slides) from both days:
