WHERE: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Skalnicowa 21, 04-797 Warsaw

In this workshop, attendees use OWASP Juice-Shop to learn how to test the security of web applications, how hacking looks from a practical standpoint, and how to find big security bugs before somebody else finds them. OWASP Juice-Shop is a specially crafted web application written in JavaScript, designed to help people develop their penetration testing skills. Attendees get to know basic techniques used during a pentest and will be able to conduct such tests. The workshop touches on the most important aspect of penetration testing, which is writing a report. Questions that will be answered include: How should such a document look? What are type 1 and type 2 errors (false-positive and false-negative)? Why might their presence in the report rule out any future work? 

Based out of SmartBear’s Wroclaw office, Krzysztof is a software engineer focused on Zephyr enterprise test management projects. He is a programmer of all languages, including Java, Scala, Python, C++, and JS, among others. He gets a lot of satisfaction from learning new things and sharing what he finds with others. He does not believe in doing security on his own "because it's easier." In his free time, he is a fan of classical music, jazz, and horse riding. 

The TestWarez conference has been promoting and supporting the exchange of knowledge among quality assurance practitioners for 20 years. For more information, go to:
