Why big organisations keep getting hacked: Security best practices and the promise of decentralisation

Women in tech: My history of a career transition from finance into the tech area
You’ve probably read or heard the story of someone who went through such a daunting career transition process. This process took me a lot of courage and resilience, so that’s why I decided to tell my story, with the aim of perhaps inspiring and encouraging other women.

Why were Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp down?
As some of you might have noticed, some of the most popular services our generation uses right now were down. Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were down as of this moment. It is hard to imagine that Facebook is vulnerable to mistakes or errors that might lead to such an outage.
What is Web3?
