Sessions To Keep On Your Radar
Infrastructure in the Cloud Era: Ezra Zygmuntowicz (EngineYard), Adam Jacob (Opscode)
Utilizing a mixture of open source tools and battle-tested techniques, Adam and Ezra will show you how to build an infrastructure that's easy to manage, integrates with your application, and is self-documenting. Along the way, they'll give you the key insights you need to get maximum benefit from these technologies for your business.

Cybercrime Today and Tomorrow's Threats
: Alex Stamos (iSEC Partners, Inc.)
It has long been an unfortunate fact that the World Wide Web cannot be safely used by the vast majority of people in the world. In this talk, we will discuss the different groups, techniques, and motivations behind crime on the Internet, with a focus on attacks targeting web users.

Flash Security: Rich Cannings (Google)
We discuss common Flash programming and deployment pitfalls that lead to web security issues such as information disclosure, cross site request forgery, and cross site scripting. We demonstrate how attackers find and exploit these issues, and most importantly, we present how developers and system administrators can prevent Flash based security issues on their websites.

Register for a Conference Pass today and choose from these sessions and dozens more across three days at Web 2.0 Expo (Psst! The Conference+Workshops Pass includes a fourth day of in-depth learning)

Registering for any Web 2.0 Expo pass also gets you into Web2Open — the official “unconference” — a free, community-driven event where you can connect with other participants on Web 2.0 topics that you want to discuss. Attendees are asked to determine the sessions using an onsite grid, emphasizing participation over presentations.

This year, Web2Open will also feature a handful of pre-scheduled hybrid and discussion sessions seeded with people who are passionate about their topics. Meet with your peers to share your Web 2.0 successes, challenges, questions, and curiosities.

Session Schedule Now Online
The day-by-day, hour-by-hour schedule is now posted online. You can use the personal scheduler function to set up your own customized agenda for the conference with just a few clicks.
