Microsoft SecureWars Contest

Writing code is not a big thing. We have proficient automated wizards to accomplish the basic skeleton code for anything and everything under the sun. The bottomline of a proficient application (code with life breathed in) is efficiently performing and secure framework.

There is a lot of research going on what is secure code and how to ensure security of the code. The latest initiative comes from Microsoft in organizing a 'SecureWars Contest' for developers and IT professionals. The code must be as secure as possible and should handle any type of exceptions from its known and unknown parameters and environmental factors.

You can find more details regarding the same from Microsoft website over here. There are very attractive prizes that is being promised over there. Let us get started in starting to write secure code. Towards this, I would also like to share a very useful book that I had been reading sometimg back. "Writing Secure Code" by Michael Howard and David LeBlanc (Microsoft Press).
