Weekly update 7 (the island edition)

Sponsored by: Sucuri: Incident Response, Monitoring, DDoS mitigation and WAF for websites

Apparently, after doing several weekly updates from different locations across the globe, last week’s one from my home office was rather boring. Now maybe that was just a noisy minority saying that, I don’t know, but I thought I’d test the theory and this week I headed out on jet ski to one of my favourite little island spots. I still got all the same content in, albeit from a more interesting spot. If you love or hate this approach, let me know, I’m still seeing what resonates and what doesn’t in these videos.

Getting back to business, this week I cover off issues such as my experience with the Apple Store wanting my unlocked phone, the Creative Commons with Attribution license on HIBP, a new Pluralsight course I’ve done on Octopus Deploy and my very shiny Ubiquiti network bits. Here’s the video – the sunniest one I’ve done to date!


  1. Apple’s shoddy security example and unlocked devices (no way, no how am I giving my unlocked phone to anyone whilst they take it out of my sight)
  2. I put a Creative Commons Attribution license on HIBP (yes, people were really just sitting on top of the API and selling access to the service I built for free)
  3. New Pluralsight “Play by Play” course on Octopus Deploy (watch Damo and I go through the awesomeness that is Octopus Deploy)
  4. All the details about my new Ubiquiti network (you want this – trust me – you really want this!)

Bonus material

Because the island itself isn’t enough awesome, I captured this on Periscope as I was heading over:
