Brainstorming for a software security workshop

Here’s a situation I’m in, and I’d want to hear your thoughts and suggestions!

Ubuntu Summit is a community event that features talks and workshops around Linux, Ubuntu, and open source. This year, I’m thankful to be able to contribute to the event itself with a 2-hour workshop on software security: “The Open Source Fortress: Finding Vulnerabilities in Your Codebase Using Open Source Tools”.

So, what would you want to see in a presentation like this, software engineers and security professionals? Are you employing any technologies or tools to protect the code you’re writing? If not, are you concerned about specific vulnerabilities in your code and wish to take actions to mitigate them? Please let me know what you think!

Any comments or ideas will be greatly appreciated and incorporated into the workshop. The latter will be made public following its presentation at the Ubuntu Summit.
