Securing Cloud Applications, the book, with Adib Saikali
Security for developers has always been…complex. When you re-design for and move your application to the cloud, there’s a new set of security concerns to work with. Adib Saikali’s working on a book on this topic, and he discusses it with Coté in this episode. It all starts with the basics of security, and goes from there.
Check out the book and read along as Adib finishes it over at Manning (https://www.manning.com/books/securing-cloud-applications), and, find him in Twitter: @asaikali (https://twitter.com/asaikali).
Outrunning the Bear - a tale of Digital Transformation in Government IT
Governments run on just as much software as the private sector, sometimes it can seem like even more! Government agencies feel the need to run their processes on software like any other organization and are starting to prioritize custom written software. Like everyone else, people in government feel the need to get better at software. In this episode, Jeremiah Sanders and Igor Steinberg talk with Coté about the motivations for getting better at software, common barriers, and a little bit of how people get over those barriers.
Some selected topics discussed:
Getting comfortable with “uncertainty” rather than certainty… accepting “failure,” the need to explore.
People are stymied by the interpretation of the rules, not the rules themselves.
Empowering people to be more cross functional.
What compromises do the people on that small team make? Risks.
