Project:
Web Application Security Quiz
June 14, 2013 @ 10:54:55

If you're looking to test out your application security knowledge, you might want to give Timo's Web Application Security Quiz a try:

Web Application Security Quiz tests your knowledge on the common security principles and quirks related to web application development. There are 15 questions. A correct answer adds one point. An incorrect answer subtracts one point. If you don't know the right answer, you can skip the question (no points are added or subtracted).

It's a pretty good overview of some of the concepts you'd find in most application security policies and includes the answers if you're interested in some of the reasoning behind them.

Evan Coury:
Q&A about software engineering
August 24, 2012 @ 08:57:14

In response to some questions he got from a student, Evan Coury has shared the answers to his questions about software development and engineering:

I found his questions to be well-posed and thoughtful, so I figured I'd post my responses as a blog post. I'll be sending this post to Jordan, so if anyone has additional comments or advice for the kid, please feel free to leave some wisdom in the comments!

Some of the questions include:

  • Describe the duties and responsibilities of someone working in software engineering.
  • Do you have assignments that seem to drag on forever, or are they usually pretty quick?
  • Are there any specific tools or equipment required for your job?
  • What are the advantages/disadvantages?
  • So do most people work for themselves, private industry, or the government?

You can read Evan's answers to these and more in the full post.

Developer Drive:
Creating a PHP User Survey Writing to Database Tables
November 22, 2011 @ 14:54:03

On Developer Drive today they've posted the most recent article in a tutorial series showing you how to create a user survey that stores the results to a database table. In this latest tutorial, they show how to hook the current code into a MySQL backend.

In the first two parts of this series, we created the data layer that will hold the polling data and established methods for setting the variable values and reading from the database tables. In this part, we will build the methods that will write new polls and answers to the tables.

They include the code for an "addPoll" method that inserts the questions and answers for the polls. Their "editPoll" method updates the poll questions/answers and the "addVote" method does exactly like it sounds - adding a vote to one of the poll options. Also included are "deletePoll", "activatePoll" and "deactivatePoll".

Symfony Blog:
Yahoo! Answers powered by symfony
May 08, 2008 @ 08:48:15

Mirroring the move they made previously to move the Yahoo! Bookmarks service over to Symfony, the company has updating their Yahoo! Answers service to be the same. According to the symfony blog today:

Yahoo! used symfony to redevelop another project. This time symfony was used as part of the foundation for Yahoo! Answers. Yahoo! Answers is the largest collection of human knowledge on the Web with more than 135 million users and 515 million answers worldwide. Yahoo! Answers is the 2nd ranked education & reference site on the web and is available in 26 markets and 12 languages.

The post shares some of the thoughts behind the move including their philosophy, the design of the project and a link to a presentation given on the update.

PHP Conference 2006 - Session Slides and Quiz answers
November 09, 2006 @ 08:37:00

For anyone that attended his talk at the International PHP Conference and were wondering what the answers to his quiz were, wonder no more. Christopher Kunz has posted the answers in his latest blog entry.

If you need a little explanation on the PHP Security Quiz by Mayflower, just read the extended entry. Just as a quick hint for the answers, I decided to blog about which answer is right - and why.

There's only four questions to the quiz, but it's good that he explains each. Some of them, especially dealing with regular expressions and Javascript attacks need a bit of explanation.

For those that couldn't make it out to the conference, here's the questions that match up with those answers.

Joshua Eichorn's Blog:
AJAX Answers
August 17, 2006 @ 14:05:24

Joshua Eichorn is back today with the answers to the questions as posed by the readers of his blog previously.

Your AJAX answers from my AJAX questions post are below, I hope everyone finds them helpful.

The questions answered include:

  • How can I find out whether a connection is broken?
  • Why would you want to use HTML_AJAX when there are far better tools for the job, pure javascript solutions such as prototype or jquery?
  • What is the best way to 'degrade' a website when Javascript/XMLHttpRequest support is disabled?
  • When utilizing an AJAX API such as Google Maps, how do you execute embedded Javascript commands in a page generated on-the-fly?

...as well as a few more. Where appropriate, he also includes code to help illustrate his point.
