Henrik Joreteg – “Avoiding the Spaghetti” Clientside code doesn't have to be an ugly cluttered mess. Building clean, sane, maintainable client-side applications is indeed possible. We'll talk a bit about CommonJS on the client, properly abstracting a model layer, the DOM as a dumb view layer, sharing code between client/ server and other techniques for avoiding insanity like automated static code analysis. 

Henrik is a partner and lead JS developer at &yet (, a boutique web software company in Richland, WA. He's a member of a growing group of javascript developers who are blazing the trail of realtime and single-page web application development and server-side javascript. Let’s put it this way: the dude cannot shut up about node.js, backbone, and 

He is the primary developer for &bang ( and has written a slew of single-page real-time web apps using a number of technologies. He recently spoke at NodeConf and KRTConf and was a technical reviewer for O'Reilly's JavaScript Web Applications. He is the author of the popular open source javascript templating solution, iCanHaz.js and as an early adopter of Backbone.js wrote several definitive blogposts on the subject.

Application Security using OWASP
Thetus Corporation


Application security is a moving target, but the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is here in Portland to help you write and deploy applications securely. Speakers James Bohem and Tim Morgan will walk you through all of the free resources made available by OWASP to developers, application architects, and information security professionals.

As an example of how OWASP can help, we'll present some of the finer points of secure web session management, covering the variety of attacks on SSL-protected web traffic if sites are not configured properly. We'll touch on cookies, state management, SSL and some common problems and solutions.

Q&A will follow. Pizza and beverages will be served.


James Bohem manages the security program at WebMD Health Services, which includes a large web-based application with millions of users, as well as other security technologies and risk management for a 400+ person division of WebMD in Portland. James has 15 years in security consulting with a focus on application security, design and technical compliance with a range of regulations and standards. In addition, he has experience developing large distributed applications, microkernels, the UNIX kernel, and international software systems for open systems.

Tim Morgan has been taking deep technical dives in security for over a decade as an application security specialist and vulnerability researcher. Tim resides in Oregon and works as VSR where he helps to secure his customers' environments through penetration testing, training and forensic investigations. Tim also develops and maintains several open source digital forensics tools, including Bletchley, an application cryptanalysis toolkit.

PIE application deadline (EXTENDED due to technical glitch)

At PIE, we like startups. It’s why we started this whole experiment in the first place. So, whenever we have the chance, we opt for using startup products as part of our process. Whether they are PIE companies or not.

We just like supporting startups.

Most of the time, taking these calculated risks is positive all around, for both PIE and the startup. But every once in a while we encounter some issues.

Unfortunately, we are experiencing an issue on the application platform we tried out for this class. A handful of folks have reached out to us, seeking confirmation that their application went through, as they did not receive the confirmation email. When we went searching, those folks didn’t turn up in the database.

Cue cold sweat.

We’re still working to diagnose the problem. And applications have officially closed. But given the issues, we are now put in the uncomfortable position of having to ask these already overtaxed entrepreneurs to resubmit their applications.

For more information, see the PIE blog.
