EllisLab is blessed with two of the greatest communities that can be found anywhere on the internet in ExpressionEngine and more recently CodeIgniter. Despite being a relative newcomer to the scene, the people attracted to CodeIgniter are among the smartest, most talented and down-to-earth developers around today. From time to time we want to highlight some of these talented people, and we’ve asked them to lend their voice to ours. Have your voice. I hope you enjoy what they have to say as much as I did.
This week, our Community Voice author is Mathew Davies (AKA Popcorn), author of the Redux Authentication library, a light, easy to use and fully featured auth engine. What follows is a brief discussion of some of the logic and security that went into the library, and considerations for your own programming.
