Issue 45, 30.10.2019

Software Development

What qualities make up a 1x engineer?
I can relate to this.

My favourite Git commit
Good example how git commit messages should be done especially if the change is ambiguous. Doing explanatory commits need extra effort than just “Fixed it” but it pays out later. (from @walokra)

DevOps

A Practical Framework for DevSecOps
Nice overview to key #DevSecOps domains and activities. “With a limited budget start with Monitoring and Responding. Then focus on how to prevent vulnerabilities from being introduced in the first place.” (from @walokra)

Docker for Pentesters
Docker has completely changed my workflow, and I wrote up 10 examples and scripts for how pentesters can leverage Docker to speed up testing. Lmk how you use Docker – this could be a series! (from @walokra)

iOS

Announcing my Shortcuts Library, featuring 150 Siri Shortcuts to use with iOS 13
With iOS 13, Shortcuts is installed by default on every device – hundreds of millions of people will inevitably use this app now. And you can control them with Siri.

Technology

The secret life of GPS trackers
“We decided to take a look at several child (GPS) trackers available on Amazon, eBay, and Alibaba to see how they stood up to our scrutiny.”

Something different

Dumbass Home 2.0
Excellent overview to “Smart” home and available solutions. “S in IoT stands for Security” so use separate WiFi, Zigbee, hub with Raspberry Pi, Raspbee & Home Assistant (or Hue/SmartThings), gadgets from Trådfri, Xiaomi (~), Philips & Osram with discount. (from @walokra)
