Kotlin Broken Authentication Guide: Examples and Prevention

So, you’ve created a form that works. Did you take the time to consider if it leaves your user open to attacks? As developers, we’re often more concerned with making sure our code works, is maintainable, and is easy to read than fixing bugs. However, if we don’t prioritize security, we leave our applications open to malicious intents. As such, it’s crucial to make security part of our development process. But to do this, we first have to understand the types of threats our apps are open to. In this post on Stackhawk’s blog, Sinazo Bogicevic explains how to defend your Kotlin application against broken authentication.

Guide to Security in Django

With a majority of businesses conducting transactions online, web applications became a valuable asset, and also became a valuable target for malicious actors. Hence, security became more crucial than ever. One of the top web application frameworks and a favorite of developers is Django. Django is a Python-based open-source web framework that allows rapid development. And along with scalability, a strong community and a batteries-included framework (loaded with most of the features required for development), Django also focuses on security. In this post on Stackhawk’s blog, you can look at some security features and libraries that come built into Django

Agile Team Structure: How to Design One for Your Enterprise

Agile is one of the most popular and widely accepted modern approaches for software development among technology organizations. It offers an adaptive, iterative, and incremental methodology. The project management team uses the agile model to build and deliver products in uncertain environments, meeting the rapidly changing market condition. But to put the agile model in action on the ground level, you also need a team that can work together conforming to the four values and 12 principles of agile. So, if your team or organization is going agile, it’s essential to understand how to form an agile team with assigned roles and responsibilities. In this post on Testim’s blog, we’re going to look at designing an agile team structure that will be adaptable, responsive, self-manageable, and cross-functional.
