NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there alongside .NET Rocks! to catch all of the action with our Ask Me Anything! sessions.

As usual there were a host of top industry pros talking about various subjects related to software development. This year, SSW TV worked alongside .NET Rocks! to run and entire track of live interviews with some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.

In this session, Troy Hunt does his usual weekly wrap up from NDC, where he talks about what’s happened in the cyber world in the last 7 days. This time, Troy brought his mate Scott Helme along to discuss the latest on security, data breaches, extended validation and security certificates. There’s also a cameo from Adam Cogan asking what to do if our phone number gets ported and used against you!
