Snyk has announced the release of a number of new features to simplify prioritizing security vulnerabilities. This includes a new, proprietary algorithm to assess and provide a score for each identified issue.

Sophia Drossopoulou gives an overview of Pony’s programming model, actors, and causality. She introduces the type system, how it is used to allow actors to send mutable state while also avoiding data races, and how the type system is used so as to allow the actors to perform garbage collection fully concurrently with one another and with normal execution.

The book Retrospectives for Everyone by Madhavi Ledalla explains how metaphors can be used to foster reflection and result in actions in agile retrospectives. The book provides examples of metaphors that can for instance be used to nurture teamwork, manage change, focus on objectives, and personal reflection, and also provides recommendations for facilitating retrospectives beyond a single team.

AWS engineers recently wrote about an open source chaos engineering tool called AWSSSMChaosRunner that they used to test fault injection in Prime Video. Built using AWS Systems Manager that can execute arbitrary commands on EC2 instances, the team was able to mitigate latency related issues using it.
