Register now for FLIGHT Europe 2020 Virtual Conference

Our annual FLIGHT Europe 2020 customer conference touches down July 14. And for the first time ever, it’s free for everyone and entirely virtual! So you and your whole team can join us for advanced Black Duck and Coverity training and thought leadership sessions in application security and open source license compliance. Please register in advance before end of day Monday, July 13 (CEST). Here are three reasons to register now for FLIGHT Europe 2020:

Get product training for you and your team

If you’ve joined our customer training sessions before, you know that our experts have a lot of insight to share. Whether you’re new to our products or a seasoned user, this is the perfect opportunity to learn from product experts. You’ll benefit from in-depth product discussions, interaction with experts, and engagement with fellow customers.

At FLIGHT Europe 2020, we’ll have two advanced product training sessions, as well as two sessions of office hours, where you can get answers directly from our product experts.

Advanced Black Duck Training

Part 1: Scan Design Patterns: Using Synopsys Detect to Analyze Microservices or Web Services, Docker Images, and Embedded Code

Performing software composition analysis on certain projects involves specific strategies:

  • Microservices projects are often built, tested, and deployed from a single branch in the source code management system with rapid release cycles. Users must pay special attention to the deployment process.
  • Docker images might call for a determination of what is in the base layer, and sometimes layer-by-layer analysis.
  • Embedded code projects commonly use compiled languages, like C, C++, and Swift. Here, signature scans and snippet matching can help greatly.

In this session, we’ll show you how to use Synopsys Detect and the Black Duck REST API to set up analysis for these types of projects.

Part 2: Dealing With False Positives and How to Use the Source Tab in Identifying Folders, Files

Synopsys Detect’s signature scanning or snippet scanning often results in false positives. In this session, we’ll explain why this happens and how to deal with false positives effectively. We’ll also explore how to use the Source tab to navigate the original source code directory structure and how to deal with any files not identified by signature or snippet scanning.

Advanced Coverity Training

Part 1: Code Sight for On-the-Fly Static Analysis

The most effective place to fix security weaknesses is at the point of introduction—as code is being developed. Whether you’re new to Coverity or a seasoned user, on-the-fly analysis with Code Sight is a great way to level up your use of the solution and make your developers more productive.

In this session, you’ll learn how to enable your developers to find and fix security weaknesses and software defects as they write code. We’ll focus on core concepts and foundations, as well as provide tips for a successful rollout to your team.

Part 2: Prevent Security Weaknesses From Propagating Beyond a Pull Request

Pull or merge requests have changed how we manage source code—and developers today are used to receiving feedback on changes before they’re accepted. This makes pull requests the perfect interaction point for application security testing.

In this session, you’ll learn how to inject Coverity static analysis into a Git pull request workflow. You’ll take home a reference implementation of scripts that you can use to guide your own deployment. This advanced session will cover some custom integration of Coverity into third-party tools, but participants of all levels will benefit by learning about the potential of this contemporary use case.

Choose sessions from 2 tracks

At FLIGHT Europe 2020, we’re offering sessions for security, DevOps, engineering, and legal professionals with two tracks—application security and open source license compliance—including guidance and advice for conducting application security testing and tech due diligence with work-from-home and social distancing measures in place. See the full agenda.

Network with the best

At FLIGHT Europe 2020, Synopsys will bring together leading experts from around the world to help take your software security/development practice to new heights. You’ll hear how leaders and pioneers are overcoming challenges and making a difference for their organizations. And you’ll meet forward-thinking experts from across all industries at our office hours sessions and our virtual happy hour.
