I'm happy to be presenting two sessions at TechEd this year. It would be great to see you there!

DEV304 Visual Studio Team System 2010: Odyssey Two

Presenter: Kirk Jackson

Tue 9/15 | 17:10-18:25 | Ballroom 1


Visual Studio 2008 is the best and most productive development environment ever! Microsoft have been busy the past couple of years putting even more great features into your favourite tool, and in Visual Studio 2010 we'll be seeing: new programming languages; diagramming tools and visualisers; new project types; and enhancements to the IDE. Come along and hear about these great features, and learn some new tips to help you make the most of Visual Studio 2010!

SEC313 Hack-Ed: Teaching the Good Guys Bad Tricks

Presenters: Kirk Jackson, Andy Prow

Wed 9/16 | 12:10-13:25 | New Zealand Room 2


You can't fight a war that you don't know you're waging. You can't defend your website against attack unless you know the tricks that the bad guys will use.


Join the "Flight of the Pwnchords*" and learn the tricks that Andy "the hacker" will use and watch as Kirk "the developer" tries to defend his ASP.NET website against them. By the end of this session you will have an understanding of some of the common attacks, such as Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cross-Domain Request Forgery (CDRF), and will have an appreciation of how layering your defenses (defense-in-depth) can help protect you from exploit chaining.


The session will also give you some practical tips that you can apply straight away in Visual Studio 2008 to help you build secure websites.

Hey Kirk,
Loved the hack-ed session - was wondering when/where the video will be available. I want to pass it onto my dev team :)

Thanks Matt!

Not sure when they'll get that online, but when it appears it will be on TechEd online.
