Our learning philosophy

Nobody’s born a developer, Just like nobody’s born a hacker.

These skills are developed, adapted and honed over time.

That’s why the only way to beat the hackers is to think like a hacker, understand how they work so you can grow from reactively fixing vulnerabilities, to proactively preventing them in the first place.
Archiving principle
We teach secure coding fundamentals and best practices. Our training empowers developers to raise standards and stay ahead of threats.
The hacker’s perspective
Codebashing trains you to think like a hacker, from hacktivists to script kiddies. This style of training stays with you for the long-term, teaching you to think with a secure mindset.
Knowledge is power
Codebashing, backed by Checkmarx, offers 17 years of AppSec knowledge from industry leaders. With direct access to the latest content and information, Codebashers can stay ahead of the curve.
More about our methodology

Our unique learning methodology

triple loop learning: going beyond surface level fixes, to ensure learning takes place at all three levels – single loop, double loop and triple loop.
Single loop
Are we doing things right?
Some training programs solely focus on fixing breaches and asking the question, "Are we doing things right?" focusing on mere actions, resulting in prompting a search for alternative actions and losing valuable work time.
Double loop
Are we doing the right things?
Others take the learning to the next level by questioning the underlying assumptions and beliefs, asking, "Are we doing the right things?" allowing developers to redefine their goals and plans when it comes to secure code.
Triple loop
How do we decide what is right?
Our approach covers 1 and 2,  but goes beyond. By encouraging learners to constantly evaluate "How do we decide what is right?", we enable them to refine their decision-making standards and measures. This comprehensive approach ensures better protection from the ever-present cyber threats that surround us. 

I have a few questions

How does Codebashing different from other secure code training platforms?
Codebashing stands out for its hands-on, interactive approach to secure code training. Rather than relying solely on theoretical instruction, Codebashing allows learners to practice in a safe, real-world coding environment and receive immediate feedback.
What programming languages does Codebashing support for its training?
Codebashing supports a wide range of popular programming languages, including but not limited to Java, Go, .NET, PHP, Python, Scala, C, Swift UI, Ruby on Rails, Kotlin, Node.JS, C++, Android, and IOS. Can’t find your programming languages? We support additional languages each month; contact us.
Dose Codebashing cover the OWASP 2023 top ten?

Yes, and much more; our vulnerability coverage Includes:

  • SQL Injection
  • XXE Injection
  • Command Injection
  • Session Fixation
  • Reflected XSS
  • Clickjacking
  • User Enumeration
  • Directory (Path) Traversal
  • Privileged Interface Exposure
  • Authentication Credentials in URL
  • Session Exposure Within URL
  • Horizontal Privilege Escalation
  • Vertical Privilege Escalation
  • Cross-Site Request Forgery (POST)
  • Cross-Site Request Forgery (GET)
  • Insecure URL Redirect
  • Persistent (Stored) XSS
