5 ways to drive agile experimentation using feature flags

Cloud application architectures, microservices, CI/CD (continuous integration, continuous development) pipelines, test automation, and infrastructure as code are all technologies that enable agile development and devops teams to deliver code to production frequently. They have taken software development from the days of quarterly releases and complex integrations to a modern era of continuous development.

Developers have always been concerned about how to manage the codebase to support frequent releases, developer productivity, feature development, and code refactoring to address technical debt. Github enables different development and branching paradigms, including feature branches, release branches, trunk-based development, and Gitflow workflow. Branching strategies structure what code goes into builds and thus can be used to control which features get deployed to end-users.

What is pretexting? Definition, examples and prevention

Pretexting definition

Pretexting is form of social engineering in which an attacker tries to convince a victim to give up valuable information or access to a service or system.

The pretext generally casts the attacker in the role of someone in authority who has the right to access the information being sought, or who can use the information to help the victim.

Pretexting has a fairly long history; in the U.K., where it's also known as blagging, it's a tool tabloid journalists have used for years to get access to salacious dirt on celebrities and politicians.

And pretexters can use any form of communication, including emails, texts, and voice phone calls, to ply their trade.
