On december 12 the Dutch Drupal Foundation will organise the first edition of the "SplashAwards". This award is to put outstanding projects in the spotlight, the best Drupal projects and community contributions from Belgium and The Netherlands.

Both Drupal agencies and individuals who have achieved extraordinary results get special recognition from inside and outside the Drupal community. The international jury selects winners out of hundreds of contestants in several categories including best government project and best Drupal theme.

The jury includes well known people in the broader PHP and Drupal community from all around the world: Joost de Valk (SEO WP fame) , Moshe Weitzman (contributor since 2001), Jeffrey "jam" McGuire (evangelist with a mo), Holly Ross (Executive Director DA) , Morten Birch Heide-Jorgensen (enfant terrible and good friend :-)), Stefan Koopmanschap (PHP / Symfony guru from the Netherlands) , Guido Jansen (magento fame) and Robert Douglass (SOLR fame and most of all around friendly chap) will select the ten winners who will walk home along the canals with a great award and a smiling face.

There are 10 awards to be given, from architecture and commerce to best governmental site and theme. The award self will be held for some 100 people, in an old cinema in the centre of Amsterdam. We are really looking forward to this event. And in fact, it will be the last event of the year for the Dutch and a great year it has been.

From a record breaking DrupalJam, via the social events around DrupalCon to 100's of students getting a free training on the Drupal Training Day and now the bowtie SplashAwards, showing of the Dutch Drupal community never was better.

Never trust data, no matter what the source is

xss in the zoen boerland.com
Drupal is becoming increasingly a backend CMS. For editers so they can easy manage their content while for example AngularJSis delivering the content. Or as a backend hup combining content from multiple sources, databases and systems.

Drupal evolved towards this from a blog alike system 10 years ago, a content type with user generated comments below. Back then everybody knew that you should filter User Generated Content and stripe the HTML if you cared about the site. Many other systems up to today however do not filter UGC good enough; user signups, search input and many other ways a user can give input ot the system.

Now Drupal is talking to other systems, combining data from multiple sources, devs still need to understand that one should ***never*** trust input data, no matter if the source is another database or a user.

Because, what could possibly go wrong with just displaying this data directly or injecting it in the database? Why should you "checkplain" the TXT fields in zone of a domain? Why?
