Hi!

Thank you for checking out this thread.

I'm working on some killer videos right now that will explain in detail how you can protect your website against hackers. The first part of the video series is live right now and it covers Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF). Go ahead and check them out right now: www.aachen-method.com

This knowledge is essential in making your websites secure and once you have a deep understanding of PHP security you can confidently charge higher rates when you are programming for other people.

I have worked hard on making my videos easy to understand and if you watch them in sequence you will have no problem keeping up, even if you are just starting out with PHP programming. You can just copy and paste everything right into your code, it's that simple! The only thing that you might have to change is variable names so that it works with your code and that shouldn't be a problem.
And I have inserted my e-mail address at the end of every video if you happen to have a question, so please don't hesitate to contact me and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.

There is no sales pitch anywhere on that website, not even ads! This is because I've been programming PHP since 2001 and since the PHP community has given me so much over the years I now want to give back by providing some killer content. I realize that some people might regard this message as spam, especially because I'm new to this forum. However please understand that I'm just trying to show these videos to as many people as possible so that we as a community can start to eliminate these vulnerabilities from people's PHP code.

I am hard of hearing, and I find videos difficult to understand if there is background noise in my surroundings or in the video (such as for your introduction in the car), and especially when I can't see the face of the speaker. (I guess no face to see will be most of the time with these videos, since you talk about being introverted and finding it helpful to read your notes.) You can see that I am able to catch some of the verbal material, because your voice pitch and enunciation work well for me.

Any chance of producing transcripts? I wish everyone would do that, and not just for the hard of hearing. I find it highly desirable for purposes of skimming the material and for extracting notes.

I'm excited to say that part 2 of my video series is available at www.aachen-method.com. I'm covering Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and how you can protect your website against it. Over the past couple of weeks I was super busy with my other projects so I couldn't focus on this course, but that's all behind me now and I can work more on this. :)

Being able to secure your code against CSRF and XSS attacks is a critical skill in being able to charge higher rates as a freelancer, so don't skip these videos.

I also recorded a new introductory video for you where I talk about how people (read: employers) can't help the perception that expensive equals best. This is supposed to serve as a sneak peek of part 3 of my video series and it's a somewhat simplified version of the reality. I'm not suggesting that you should just start charging $500/hour like a lawyer and half a dozen hot chicks will immediately surround you because they will think you are the s***.

I'm also giving a 100% honest explanation on why I'm giving away all this content. Hint: It's not what you think. Definitely watch this video first. (Did this evil ploy ... errr ... informative paragraph work in getting you to watch my video? I should become a writer for 24, I'd make a killing with my suspenseful writing!)

Make sure you sign up for my newsletter so I can notify you right away when I release more killer videos. I promise I won't give your address to anyone and I will never spam you. You can remove your address from the list at any time simply by clicking on the unsubscribe link that is included in every e-mail.

P.S.: Yeah, I'm working on this on a Friday afternoon when I'm supposed to be either working or "outside". I have no life.

I just skimmed through the intro video.. And my conclusion is I will watch the full thing -- you've got a very winning way of expressing yourself -- it's fun to listen to your observations and insights.  The part about how you answer people who tell you you are wasting your time on the internet made me laugh :)

Anyway, well done  :up:

Of course the technical PHP videos are more interesting to me -- but i think the intro video would be useful to people starting out doing freelance stuff, especially people who are highly skilled and charging *low* rates, and wondering why they are having trouble finding work.  Your explanation of the problem is probably more likely to make sense than reading an academic article on the subject, and is certainly more entertaining.  :up: :up:
