We Are All Artists - Stefan Koopmanschap

I’ve written on this topic before, but as Amanda Palmer touched the topic in her book, I felt it was a good idea to write about it again, this time on my blog.

The Pitfalls of Code Review (And How To Fix Them) - Brandon Savage

It’s a well-accepted concept that code review improves the quality of the code produced by your team. Many teams use code reviews, most famously at Mozilla, where every change bigger than a grammatical typo is reviewed by a peer. Code reviews are effective because they put a second set of eyes on a particular bit […]

PHP Install Statistics - Anthony Ferrara

After yesterday's post, I decided to do some math to see how many PHP installs had at least 1 known security vulnerability. So I went to grab statistics from W3Techs, and correlated that with known Linux Distribution supported numbers. I then whipped up a spreadsheet and got some interesting numbers out of it. So interesting, that I need to share... Read more »
