Much conferencing during the day.

The best part by far was a web app security workshop where we got to hack a web app with a bunch of vulnerabilities built into it. It was a lot of fun; I’ve always wanted to try this kind of thing – SQL injection and script injection and accessing other users’ shopping carts and so on.

During our free time before dinner I went for a walk through the little parks along the canal. I don’t know about the rest of Riga, but the parks were lovely. More than just green spaces, they had sculptures, fountains, colourful plantings etc.

There is something magical about the combination of greenery and water. Greenery is nice; water is nice; the two together are more nice than the sum of the parts.
