CodePath Web Security Guides

Welcome to the open-source CodePath web security guides! Our goal is to become the central crowdsourced resource for complete and up-to-date web security content and tutorials.


Ever been frustrated finding information on outdated one-off blog posts and tutorials that has since become irrelevant? How many times were you googling only to find your answer only on a 2 year old StackOverflow post? We believe there's got to be a better way. Why not have the community work together to create useful and detailed documentation for every aspect of web security (or any platform)? There's absolutely no reason that we should have to make do with outdated, vague or un-editable content anymore.

Read about our mission to change the way engineers learn new technologies and we would love for you to get involved! In addition, we are an early-stage startup so if you like this guide and what we are trying to do, please consider following us on twitter @codepath!
