Let’s go for my web review for the week 2021-38.
Nice comics explaining in a simple way how this works.
Tags: tech, facebook, social-media
This toxic platform is really cumulating loads of issues. Cynicism and lies to protect profits seems to be the norm at least in the upper management.
Tags: tech, social-media
That’s a good list and a good way to approach social media.
Tags: tech, agile
I have to agree there. So long and thanks for the fish I guess.
Tags: tech, licensing, copyright, cla, dco
Interesting description on how the FSF deals with copyright assignments, CLAs, DCOs and the various legal tools needed.
Tags: tech, free-software, craftsmanship, codereview
Obviously I strongly agree with this. Participating in code reviews of free software components is a great way to improve. This applies to being a reviewer, submitting code and skimming other reviews.
Tags: tech, linux, system, kernel
Nice way to demystify syscalls in the Linux kernel. It’s not that hard to add new ones.
Tags: tech, python, tests, performance, profiling
Mostly about the general approach on how to profile this kind of things. Still a couple of interesting pytest specific tips in here.
Looks like a tiny and nonetheless powerful library for animations in web frontends.
Tags: tech, security, windows, linux
Fascinating attack vector. It was just a matter of time I guess, the more you use blurry frontiers (be it between OSes or other important domains) the more opportunities for exploits show up.
Tags: tech, apple, security
Oops… that looks like bad handling on their security bounty program. Couple of the issues listed are particularly concerning.
Tags: tech, ecology, battery
Bumped into this, didn’t know about their previous experiments. I’m definitely thrilled about this development… I’ll try to find more about it, paves the way to interesting little devices. I so damn hate batteries. :-)
A bit of an oversimplification of course… still it’s OK since it’s on purpose to get the point accross. In any case it’s a good way to find out where you stand and where your weaknesses are as a manager.
Bye for now!
