Rugged Software Using Rugged Driven Development

Security testing is often done at the cadence of auditors and not at the pace of the development team which hurts delivery time in agile teams. Rugged Driven Development (RDD) utilizes security and other stress testing methodologies during the development process to impact the end product so that you create software that is secure, reliable and resilient.

Using the Gauntlt open source framework to help implement RDD you will find it fun to live by the Gauntlt motto, “be mean to your code.” You will be equipped to deliver and release ruggedized software faster as well as span the communication gaps that exist between dev, ops and security teams. This talk will help you implement RDD your projects with plenty of real world examples.
