The OWASP Top Ten project is an awareness document listing the 10 most common web site vulnerabilities on the internet today.

Come and see 9 of them in action - and how to fix them.

(9 out of 10 vulnerabilities liked ASP.NET, 1 doesn't affect it at all. Vulnerabilities tested in a lab. Your ASP.NET may not like them at all. No websites were harmed in the making of this synopsis.)

Barry has been pottering about with computers for far too long now and manages to make some money out of it. Despite having used PCs for years and rising to the dizzy heights of a Developer Security MVP he still misses the dead flesh of the ZX Spectrum keyboard.

Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio

The talk gives an overview and beginners guide to Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio (MRDS) which is a very cool integrated .Net development environment provided by Microsoft for creating distributed robotics applications. As part of the talk I'll show how MRDS can be used to create the control code for a simple simulated robot in a simulated environment and then look at how that code can be translated to run in the real world on a Lego Mindstorms robot.

Alan spent the vast majority of career working as a games programmer for Electronic Arts, first on the Harry Potter franchise and then more recently on an NDS game you probably won't have heard of called Zubo.
