Are you a developer? Do you manage a team of developers? Are you looking for a challenge? Do you want an opportunity to improve your secure coding skills?

How strong are your secure coding skills.pngIf you’ve said yes to any of these questions, we have just the right event: A live Secure Coding tournament on May 22nd from 1:30 PM EDT – 2:30 PM EDT hosted by Secure Code Warrior and taking place during our Micro Focus Virtual Universe.

If you’re wondering why developing secure coding skills is so crucial in this day and age, let me remind you that security is shifting left, moving closer to the beginning of the software development lifecycle, and developers are asked to ensure their code is secure as they write it. Developers, however, are not security experts. That's why compilations such as the OWASP Top Ten list of critical web application security risks contains the same vulnerabilities, such as SQL injection, year after year.

There’s no way around it: developers must improve their secure coding skills, and Secure Code Warrior created just the right solution: it enables developers to think and code with a security mindset through gamified training and real-time coaching— empowering them to be the first line of defense for their organization. When developers improve their secure coding skills, not only will that better protect organizations from cyberattacks, but it can save time and money by getting apps online faster. And, if you are a Fortify on Demand and Fortify Software Security Center user, you have immediate access to targeted, on-demand secure development training through our integration with Secure Code Warrior! 

Now, are you ready to join our live Secure Coding tournament? You will engage in healthy competition against other participants in a series of vulnerable code challenges that ask you to identify a problem, locate insecure code, and fix a vulnerability. All challenges are based on the OWASP Top 10, and players can choose to compete in a range of software languages including Java EE, Java Spring, C# MVC, C# WebForms, Go, Ruby on Rails, Python Django & Flask, Scala Play, Node.JS, React, and both iOS and Android development languages. Register now! We look forward to seeing your coding skills!
