Thank you for this post, it was a good read! :)

One activity which I found useful with developers who are new to web security is to demonstrate them the use of interception proxies like OWASP ZAP or Burp Suite. It can be eye-opening when they realize that any part of a HTTP request can be modified and hence why thorough input validation is important.
