Attack Trees, Security Modeling for Agile Teams

Agile software development and security often don’t feel like good bedfellows. Many traditional security methodologies for analysing risk and threats are based on old military or government based software development methodologies which favour traditional, slow moving, low change...

Observable JS Apps

Observability isn't just for backends. Client-side javascript applications are the original distributed systems software: real-time, heavily cached, single-paged, asynchronous, multi-domain, with polyglot persistence layers and cascading dependencies and always running massive amounts of JS. So...
