Here we go, welcome to issue number #4 🚀
As you could have noticed, this week the issue has been sent from a different email address, from now on it will become the official email address, let’s mark it as “Not spam” ✨
Thanks to Cloudflare’s email routing functionality I was able to create an alias with just a bunch of clicks so you can always recognise these emails just by looking at the address 🕵️‍♀️ #andNotMarkItAsSpam

Security and Open Source
I wanted to dig deeper into this topic and how the Open Source Security Foundation works. I discovered that the OpenSSF with the Linux Foundation had created some free courses about Secure Software Development.
I took the “Secure Software Development: Requirements, Design, and Reuse” course that covered these exciting topics:
  • Security basics
  • Secure design principles
  • Supply chain evaluation
I really recommend it, especially if you are already in the software development field and want to improve your security skills.
I’m planning to write something about secure design principles so stay tuned 📡

Distributed Systems
A few months ago, I caught a pleasant conversation on Twitter about Distributed Tracing Systems, so I decided to write something about it.
Following the original Google Dapper Whitepaper, I tried to summarise with a few examples and use-cases how it works. Nowadays, it’s critical to trace our distributed systems down and having clear in mind how to do so is key..

Call for papers and conferences
Do you like conferences? Perhaps are you a speaker? Do you have a hard time finding the right conference to attend or speak?
Today is your lucky day. I found a lovely Event Directory to find a list of CFP/Conferences.
You can add the events you are interested in on your calendar, submit your paper and so on. Very handy 🗺
