I'm Charles Weir. I'm passionate about making software development more productive, more reliable and more fun.
Working as a consultant, mentor and technical lead, I've helped more than a hundred project teams do just that; they tell me my engaging approach and positive drive deliver team agreement, technical change, and improved processes.
Recently I have built up expertise studying the vitally important issue of how programmers can best tackle software security, without getting overwhelmed. In a world where most experts treat programmers – and even end users – as part of the problem, our work at Security Lancaster has highlighted a unique approach to make software security inexpensive, easy, and even fun.
I'm keen to work with others who want inexpensive software security. Please call me at the number below or email me. Or take a look at the blog entries and Twitter comments below, or meet me at the events listed here on this site.
Have you ever used a security analysis tool on your code?
Those who have tell me consistently the problem: they get lots of ‘false positives’ – error warnings that turn out not to be security problems in practice. What, however, can we do about that?
