<br>Andrew has been a developer for 7 years.  He began as a PHP and C# developer, where he entered web application development by designing and creating web services.  For the last 5 years he has been a web developer in Boulder.  He has always had an interest in web application, network, and cyber security and has brought those interests into his web developer role with securing web applications.  He is often amused how passwords are still stored as plain text, untrusted HTML input is not validated, and GET parameters are not sanitized.
