Test the Web Forward Portland
If you live in the Portland area, are coming to town for CascadiaJS 2014
and Dev Week PDX,
or just fancy a visit to the beautiful Rose City, come join us Sunday, August 3rd for
Test the Web Forward Portland 2014.
Serious front-end developers know that security is not just for server-side code anymore. Come learn
how Content Security Policy works to help stop XSS in your apps
from expert Ian Melven of New Relic, who contributed to the implementation for Mozilla Firefox. Then
learn to write tests that will help you explore CSP, make it better and more interoperable, and perhaps
even find a bypass we haven't thought of yet.

Prior to attending, you will want to read and become familiar with at least one of the specs so that you
have the foundation required to participate.
Here are the specs we will focus on learning and testing:
You may also choose any other W3C spec that interests you.
If you want to write tests for CSP, you should also either install PHP and Apache on your local system, or have an SSH client and public key so we can give you access to a preconfigured test server.
