This TravisCI blog post welcomes AJ to the team. In it, there is a bit that caught my attention (except, of course, the one about bra burning):
If you’re so inclined, you can follow her on Twitter or run curl cv.soulshake.net.
Wait a second … A what? curl for the CV? I had to try it out. Here’s an even better way, for reading all the slides:
p=1; while [ $p -lt 9 ]; do curl -N cv.soulshake.net/$((p++)); read; done
Oh. My. God. Lo and behold, this is the coolest tech CV I’ve ever seen. Ever. Period. TravisCI is so lucky to have her!
P.S.: If you are interested in how this was done, here a couple of blog posts – one and two.
Once we are happy with the TravisCI configuration, we’ll be bringing this setup to our BitBucket Pipelines environment as well.
The setup is also based around CakePHP framework, but it’s easy enough to adopt it to any other framework, PHP or not.
“The end of CSRF?” blog post talks about the new feature coming to browsers – SameSite cookie enforcement, which will help in getting rid of Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. Too bad this is currently only supported by Google Chrome (both desktop and mobile), and Opera. But I’m sure it’s coming soon to the rest of the browsers.
Update: It looks like the above blog post is almost a copy of this blog post, which has a number of useful comments. Including this one, which links to a variety of projects and programming languages bug trackers requesting the support of the SameSite cookie feature. Also, it looks like SameSite cookie is superseded by the Cookie Prefix solution, proposed by Google.
If you read Russian, have a look at this article as well, which is somewhat based on the above slides.
Ilya Birman has a massive blog post “UI Museum: Norton Commander 5.0” with almost 60 screenshots (!!!) and user interface feature descriptions of Norton Commander – an icon tool that was used by a whole generation of PC users in the DOS and early Windows era.
Norton Commander was so popular that is spawned a number of other projects that brought similar functionality to other operating systems (Midnight Commander for Linux), later versions of Windows (Far, Total Commander), and even other file management tools (FileZilla, CutFTP) and more.
Good old times…
