Here's a brief recap of what we accomplished in Q2, along with details on our Q3 plans.
The key to combining privacy and innovation is baking it into the SDLC. Analogous to application security's (AppSec) upstream shift into the development cycle, privacy belongs at the outset of development, not as an afterthought. Here's why.
Video meetings aren’t ideal, but we can make them a little easier by understanding that there are multiple ways of interacting with your fellow humans.
We take a detailed look at a hacking incident that gave a user unauthorized access to our code and data.
Relying on volunteers to maintain every open source project isn't long term sustainable. Funding open source projects could keep development moving, but would that funding be raised and who would pay for it?
Two engineers at Salesforce talk about how they decoupled a complex library from old spaghetti logic, then open sourced that library by creating a new internal process where none existed before.
No matter how well-intentioned and free wheeling a project is, at some point, to succeed at scale, decisions need to be made and conflicts need to be resolved. But is a project managed best by a single person with the final say or through building consensus with a committee of several people?
The center of gravity for software is shifting. Tik Tok is a Chinese-born, consumer-facing, global hit. Meanwhile, developers are fleeing San Francisco as the pandemic rages on.

Studying for this test meant that I had less structured time for volunteering, so I wanted to find a way to contribute to the pandemic effort…
In a previous role, I was an engineering manager for a well-known company for a particular tech stack. One way we sorted through all the applications was requiring coding tests for potential candidates. One truly stood out, and it taught me to think about what I am really looking for in these sorts of submissions.
