Security Architectures & Coding Communication

1/31/2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Coding for Effective Communication & Security Architecture Practices Today

Open to all women and men (no kids)

Coding for Effective Communication
Code is just a list of instructions for a computer, right? Perhaps, but it's actually capable of so much more. Code is also a powerful way to present ideas and illustrate concepts. This talk covers how to use code as an effective communication tool.

State of Security Architecture Practices Today
While the specialty field of “Information Security Architecture” is maturing and slowly gaining ground as a recognized specialty, there are still many misconceptions about what it really means. Michelle will present the state of information security architecture today, some of the common misconception about the practice and finally present a consensus outline of what a good security architecture practice entails and what are the key questions that should be asked for every project.

Why are we asking for donations?
CodeChix is seeking non-profit status and we need to raise funds for filing fees. Apart from that, there is great demand for CodeChix T-shirts and we would love to be able to give our loyal attendees 2013 CodeChix T-shirts. So, we are also raising funds for that effort.
