I build web applications and I'm into web application security. I like to speak about secure development. My mission is to teach web developers how to build secure and fast web applications and why. (more about me, contact)

My trainings

And this is what they say about them: Originally, I've arranged Michal's training primarily for my colleagues because "of course I already know these things"... Michal has changed my mind in the first hour of the first day and continued to do so for the whole two days. Thanks to this training I finally understood some of the attack/defense concepts in full depth, and especially in the right context. — Jan Pospíšil, Senior PHP developer, Czech Radio

Public trainings

Come to my public trainings, everybody's welcome:

Trainings in Prague are held regularly in the middle of March, June, September, and December, in other cities irregularly.

In-house trainings

Any public training can also be turned into an in-house training. As an extra, I offer these in-house-only courses:

Looking for Introduction to PHP, Classes and objects in PHP? I've handed them over to Martin Hujer. I've discontinued Web application performance, Martin Michálek runs a similar training.

I use 2FA where possible, I recommend using it whenever possible so I just had to try it.

Slovak websites in the “Collection #1” password database and friends
January 23, 2019

Yesterday I checked Czech websites in “Collection #1” and others (like “Collection #2” to “Collection #5”, “BigDB”), today I've checked Slovak sites. We're neighboring countries and historically have a lot in common, many Czech users have accounts on Slovak sites as well, so it seemed like a good idea.

Czech websites in the “Collection #1” password database and friends
January 22, 2019

Last week was all about the 773 million records data breach, nicknamed “Collection #1”. It's a few years old compilation of previous data leaks but it's still interesting to check which Czech websites (and Slovak, too) are present in this and other databases (like “Collection #2” to “Collection #5”, “BigDB”).
