Weekly update 18 (McLaren edition)

Sponsored by: Netsparker – Dead accurate, fully automated and easy to use web application security scanner – Launch a vulnerability scan in just seconds!

How’s this for a spot to be?! This week I’m at the McLaren factory in Woking just outside London courtesy of a kind invite from a friendly Twitter follower. On Sunday, I was shown around some great spots in London by another one and as I’ve said before, I’ve only ever had good things come from meeting people “in real life” that I’ve interacted with online. Highly recommended!

Not a lot to talk about in terms of new content I’ve written, but I give a rundown on the NDC conference, the new Pluralsight course I’m creating and the significant changes the industry is seeing with the rapid adoption of HTTPS. I also touch on the privacy issues of using luggage tracking tech “Tile”. That and more in the podcast and video below.

  1. The McLaren Technology Centre (no, not directly tech-related, but a stunningly modern location and this video shows the things I couldn’t photograph myself)
  2. HTTPS is gaining traction (that one’s a link to Chrome’s upcoming change, but there’s lots more to come!)
  3. Security requires pragmatism (my thoughts on using Tile to track personal items and how we need to keep things in perspective)
  4. Netsparker is sponsoring my blog this week (I’ve written about these guys in the past and genuinely love their dynamic analysis tool)
