lcamtuf's blog: The deal with Bitcoin
Predicting is hard - especially the future. In some sense, a coin that represents a cryptographic proof of wasted CPU cycles is no better or worse than a currency that relies on cotton decorated with pictures of dead presidents. It is true that Bitcoin suffers from many implementation problems - long transaction processing times, high fees, frequent security breaches of major exchanges - but in principle, such problems can be overcome.

That said, currencies live and die by the lasting willingness of others to accept them in exchange for services or goods - and in that sense, the jury is still out. The use of Bitcoin to settle bona fide purchases is negligible, both in absolute terms and in function of the overall volume of transactions. In fact, because of the technical challenges and limited practical utility, some companies that embraced the currency early on are now backing out.

When the value of an asset is derived almost entirely from its appeal as an ever-appreciating investment vehicle, the situation has all the telltale signs of a speculative bubble. But that does not prove that the asset is destined to collapse, or that a collapse would be its end. Still, the built-in deflationary mechanism of Bitcoin - the increasing difficulty of producing new coins - is probably both a blessing and a curse.

Watch "The impact of the GDPR by Michaël Demey" on YouTube
Do you know what it means to be GDPR compliant? Do you know what the GDPR is? Developers answering "no" will have hard times ahead of them. The GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation, is one of the most important legislations introduced by the EU in the past decade. It describes what personal data is, what companies are allowed to do with that data and, more importantly, what citizens are allowed to do. A lot of software development and products involve the use of personal data and this falls under the GDPR. Developers and software companies not aware of what the GDPR stands for, may risk heavy fines if the software they write is non-compliant. This is not a scare session. In this session we will walk through what the GDPR is, what it affects and what not, and what steps people should take to be on the way to being compliant. I promise to keep the legal jargon to a minimum.

The shift towards an API landscape indicates a significant evolution in the way we build applications. The rise of JavaScript and mobile applications have sparked an explosion of easily-accessible REST APIs. But how do you protect access to your API? Which security aspects are no longer relevant? Which security features are an absolutely must-have, and which additional security measures do you need to take into account?

Corporate Realpolitik Explained: The Tech Lead - DaedTech
Being a “good” tech lead means occupying the role without mutinies and without impeding the team progress much. Ideally speaking, someone in this role develops the other team members professionally and makes everyone collectively more productive. They make the team significantly more productive.

But here’s the rub.

A good team member and professional does that anyway. The things that make a person a “good” tech lead on the surface are the same things that make people good team members. The lone exception is the role artifice itself, like task delegation. To think of this another way, ask yourself this question. If the role were truly about team uplift (instead of non-monetary compensation through vanity titles), why wouldn’t the role be team-voted instead of idealist manager appointed?

So should you take this role? Absolutely. Should you use it to try to help people improve? Again, absolutely. But don’t kid yourself about what it is. It’s a tiny bit of leverage that a savvy aspiring opportunist can turn into meaningful leverage. It’s a stepping stone to other things and not a calling.

Le petit miracle économique et social portugais s'est réalisé en moins de 2 ans avec une politique pourtant opposée aux demandes de la Commission européenne.

Secure Coding Guidelines for Java SE
These guidelines are intended to help developers build secure software, but they do not focus specifically on software that implements security features. Therefore, topics such as cryptography are not covered in this document (see [9] and [10] for information on using cryptography with Java). While adding features to software can solve some security-related problems, it should not be relied upon to eliminate security defects.

Hashids - generate short unique ids from integers
Hashids is a small open-source library that generates short, unique, non-sequential ids from numbers.

It converts numbers like 347 into strings like “yr8”, or array of numbers like [27, 986] into “3kTMd”.

You can also decode those ids back. This is useful in bundling several parameters into one or simply using them as short UIDs.

It’s not that your teeth are too big: your jaw is too small – Peter Ungar | Aeon Ideas
Selection for jaw length is based on the growth expected, given a hard or tough diet. In this way, diet determines how well jaw length matches tooth size. It is a fine balancing act, and our species has had 200,000 years to get it right. The problem for us is that, for most of that time, our ancestors didn’t feed their children the kind of mush we feed ours today. Our teeth don’t fit because they evolved instead to match the longer jaw that would develop in a more challenging strain environment. Ours are too short because we don’t give them the workout nature expects us to.

Tabs, spaces and your salary - how is it really?
A couple of days ago, David Robinson published an article on the Stack Overflow blog with a very provocative title: Developers Who Use Spaces Make More Money Than Those Who Use Tabs. It uses the data from Stack Overflow developer survey to show that indeed, using spaces is associated with higher salaries, even when we account for experience level. So, should you start using spaces instead of tabs to increase your salary?

The answer is clearly No because correlation doesn't imply causation and intuitively the indentation of source code doesn't have any direct causal link to anyone's salary. The whole story left a lot of people scratching their heads and it even made it into a BBC news story.

I believe that data science should be about answering questions and providing new insights into data - and unfortunately the original article doesn't offer many answers. It's a fun correlation but what's behind it? This blog post is my attempt to shed some light into the issue. The original article encouraged people to explore the data for themselves and this is precisely what I did. So I'd like to invite you to follow me through a little data science detective story and a deep dive into the data from the Stack Overflow survey. You'll see that tabs and spaces are not what they seem. Spoiler: your salary has more to do with the type of company and the environment you work in rather than what type of indentation you use.

Dependency Injection, Inversion of Control & The Dependency Inversion Principle
Dependency Injection, Inversion of Control, and The Dependency Inversion Principle are poorly understood and often conflated. This confusion is the result of several factors. The first is that they all have similar names. Another factor is that these concepts often work in conjunction with each other (though they are not requirements of each other). Also, early writers of DI frameworks, appropriated the term Inversion of Control, which had previously existed in a different form. Finally, especially in the case of the Dependency Inversion Principle, the original explanation is not clear.

The real threat that Saudi Arabia sees in Qatar
What is already evident, though, and quite depressing, is the determination of some Saudi-led Arab countries to squeeze Qatar in this manner, as a sign of their willingness to use economic and military warfare, starvation tactics, and other means to keep the Arab world in the dilapidated condition of incompetent governance, corruption, pauperization, polarization, civil wars, fragmentation, and other dire conditions that emanate directly from non-stop autocracy as the reigning paradigm of modern Arab governance. This is the real security threat to the Arab people and societies, even though the political space to express such views across the Arab region and abroad continues to narrow.

Why most freelancing advice doesn’t apply to programmers most of the time | Lobsters
This brings to mind the Fundamental Theorem of Employment: a person hires for a job that he doesn’t want to do, or for a job that he can’t do for himself. You have to know which category you’ve been put in.

The former makes one a subordinate employee; the latter is a position of respect. There’s a caveat, which is that not all bosses know when they can’t do a job. Most managers think they could be programmers if it were worth their time, but they know that they couldn’t be PhD-level mathematicians. Even high-end programming can become first-category work if you’re not careful, because most boss men see it as just programming and believe they could learn how to do it if they just spent a summer on it.

Contractors are in the first type of job. Consultants are in the second. One is a shittier version of the employee bargain, while the other has upsides: more money, more autonomy, and the chance to build an employer-independent reputation.

I think the OP is right that it’s nearly impossible to move from the first to the second. They’re different kinds of jobs. The contractor isn’t going through a tougher interview process than the employee, while the consultant needs to play the game really well to be on the map. (Quality of the work doesn’t really matter here; that’s not what reputations are built on in the real world.) Contracting isn’t selective; consulting is hard to get into.

Now, there is no obligation for the UK to sign up to every dot and comma of the EU-27s proposal – in particular, the provocative suggestion that the European Court of Justice should oversee any deal (although, given the shameful behaviour of the Home Office towards EU citizens since the referendum, the desire for some grown-up supervision is understandable).

But there is absolutely nothing to stop the UK from saying, today, that it is prepared to accept a comprehensive deal, as proposed by the EU-27, that would guarantee all rights – except, that is, the fact that the UK government is neither ready nor willing to make good on its promises. It has been hiding behind the EU-27’s supposed unwillingness to offer a reciprocal deal. It has now been put on the spot; the ball is in our court.

For there to be such open disagreement and outright hostility to a new Java version so late in the development cycle is completely unprecedented. Whilst this vote is only the Public Review Ballot and not the final ratification ballot, this is a clear warning shot.

Oracle's published timeline for the delivery of Java 9 appears to be on a collision course with the expressed view of other vendors and the community. It remains to be seen whether they will alter direction, potentially delaying Java 9 yet again or to force through their vision of modular Java, even over the objections of major vendors and community participants.
