Use Amazon EC2 Mac Instances to Build & Test macOS, iOS, ipadOS, tvOS, and watchOS Apps
"Powered by Mac mini hardware and the AWS Nitro System, you can use Amazon EC2 Mac instances to build, test, package, and sign Xcode applications for the Apple platform including macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, watchOS, and Safari." The downside of this is that "The instances are launched as EC2 Dedicated Hosts with a minimum tenancy of 24 hours" which is due Apple EULA and thus one CI build costs about $26. And what I read from HN the real viable option is still to use MacStadium.

Tools of the trade

cloudquery
"cloudquery transforms your cloud infrastructure into queryable SQL tables for easy monitoring, governance and security." (from cloudseclist.com)

k8s-security-policies
"Repository providing a security policies library that is used for securing Kubernetes clusters configurations. The security policies are created based on CIS Kubernetes benchmark and rules defined in Kubesec.io." (from cloudseclist.com)

alyssaxuu/screenity
"Screenity is a feature-packed screen and camera recorder for Chrome. Annotate your screen to give feedback, emphasize your clicks, edit your recording, and much more." (from Weekend Reading)

Miscellanous

Why Apple's replacement for Intel processors works really, really well
"They added Intel's memory-ordering to their CPU. When running translated x86 code, they switch the mode of the CPU to conform to Intel's memory ordering."
