Testing your Software with OWASP ZAP

A large part of designing software, big or small -- enterprise level or a simple create-react-app, is user and data security. Without secure software, even using the latest or newest technologies may not keep or attract users. I will be demonstrating how to use OWASP ZAP against a simple Ruby on Rails application.

What you'll need:
- Website (Need to get permission beforehand)
- Or OWASP Juice Shop
- Or a throwaway application (Ruby on Rails app)
- OWASP ZAP (Zed Attack Proxy) (https://www.zaproxy.org/download/)

Be a Brand Not an Employee in Tech

Title: Be a Brand and Not an Employee in Tech

When you go into professional organizations, you need a solid personal brand that looks and feels good, too. Sometimes to get the salary you desire or get promoted to a higher level, you have to enhance your personal brand to stand out at work. Employees find a way to only do what’s asked of them, but personal brands find a way to market themselves through their education and professional experiences. This personal branding can be experienced in the way you deliver your task, how you dress, or how you conduct yourself in meetings.… read more

How a virus is changing our perception of technology

Digital Technology has been here for the last decade. But we kept it on the fringe, as an unwanted outsider not to be allowed to come and take us over under its grip before enslaving and destroying humans to finally create an empire of robots. However, the reality turned out to be far from it. The change of script was controlled by a tiny 400 microns with no processing power at all, rather than robots. The virus needed no intelligence to come along and destroy the empire of humans like a castle of cards making them run and seek refuge wherever they could. If this period were to be examined in… read more
