Chances are if you're a developer you had some late nights worrying about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) this year, or perhaps you've had to deal with a data breach directly.
In this talk I'll discuss how to collect and handle user data more safely and ethically. I'll cover: - Lean data practices you can put into practice right now - GDPR compliance and why it's important even if you're not in the EU - The future: privacy preserving technologies
Attendees should leave with a better understanding of how to collect and process user data in a safer way.
