• Today's Bullshit Opportunity of the Day
      [i]You will have the opportunity to join an exciting, early stage company that still has a lot of product to build, and the ability to wear many hats and work on different parts of the system. Being an early stage company, you're able to take risks that a large company can't and there is also the benefit of not having 10+ years of legacy code to maintain. Some of the thing you could get the chance to work on include:

      Leverage RxJava and ReactiveSwift to write immutable and typesafe code

      Work directly with the product team to prototype and test experimental features

      Work with distributed systems and write RESTful Scala-based microservices using Finagle

    • Facebook security chief, in leaked audio, rips own company on current security practices
      https://www.cnbc.com/2017/10/19/facebook-security-chief-alex-stamos-leaked-audiotape.html

      Facebook chief security officer Alex Stamos says in a leaked audio recording that the company's cyber defense operations are run "like a college campus, almost" to satisfy the company's internal culture of freedom to experiment, even though Facebook faces the same kinds of highly sophisticated attacks as a defense contractor.

      "The threats that we are facing have increased significantly and the quality of the adversaries that we are facing...Both technically and from a cultural perspective I don't feel like we have caught up with our responsibility," Stamos says in the recording, which was made in July and obtained by the tech news site ZDNet.

      "We have the threat profile of a...defense contractor, but we run our corporate networks...like a college campus, almost," he says.

      That's why ad agencies are traditionally staffed with hot slutty young women willing to do almost anything to close the deal and keep the client happy. It's a still like mad men even 50 years later.

      But with more females at ceo and in other positions of power that model fails.

      I know, we need some hot slutty young man in account services to join the team!

    • Anyone here using the Go Programming Language?
      I haven't used it for anything serious, just played with it.

      From my limited experience with it, it seems a perfectly usable language and the concurrent features are nice. Some of the omissions (like the lack of type inheritance) seem to have been done basically on the principle of "the designer doesn't like that", but I guess that's one of the reasons to develop your own language. Some other things are that they have disallowed things like pointer arithmetic "for safety", but still include stuff like interface {} - which is basically void* by another name, and carries most of the same hazards.
