Coding bootcamps need to get real about secure coding practices
It’s no secret that the world of software development has been thrust into the spotlight recently. Tech startups are popping up in “innovation districts” in cities around the world. And single-product software giants are growing floor by floor in some of the nation’s most expensive high-rises. It’s easy to see the influence of software, and the importance of the people who develop it. Yet not all software is created equal, and no two developers share precisely the same aptitude for secure software development. Coding bootcamps are increasing in popularity. They’re turning out fledgling developers at record rates and filling software development teams with capable coders. Yet many of these coding schools focus on training developers to create applications, rather than to secure them. They tend to emphasize a variety of coding languages, frameworks, and practices. By contrast, they offer only a cursory discussion of software weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and the attack vectors that leave them open for exploit. These full-stack coding bootcamps, separate from security bootcamps, represent a significant portion of new developer education.
