It's a period of unrest. Rebel developers, striking from continuous deployment servers, have won their first victory. During the battle, rebel spies managed to push an epic commit in the HTML code of https://pro.sony. Pursued by sinister agents, the rebels are hiding in commits, buttons, tooltips, API, HTTP headers, and configuration screens.


Alexandros Gazis, Eleftheria Katsiri - Middleware 101
Whether segregating a sophisticated software component into smaller services, transferring data between computers, or creating a general gateway for seamless communication, you can rely on middleware to achieve communication between different devices, applications, and software layers. Following the increasing agile movement, the tech industry has adopted the use of fast waterfall models to create stacks of layers for each structural need, including integration, communication, data, and security. Given this scope, emphasis must now be on endpoint connection and agile development. This means that middleware should not serve solely as an object-oriented solution to execute simple request-response commands.


Alvaro Videla - Meaning and Context in Computer Programs
When you look at a function program's source code, how do you know what it means? Is the meaning found in the return values of the function, or is it located inside the function body? What about the function name? Answering these questions is important to understanding how to share domain knowledge among programmers using the source code as the medium. The program is the medium of communication among programmers to share their solutions.


Daniil Tiganov, Lisa Nguyen Quang Do, Karim Ali - Designing UIs for Static Analysis Tools
Static-analysis tools suffer from usability issues such as a high rate of false positives, lack of responsiveness, and unclear warning descriptions and classifications. Here, we explore the effect of applying user-centered approach and design guidelines to SWAN, a security-focused static-analysis tool for the Swift programming language. SWAN is an interesting case study for exploring static-analysis tool usability because of its large target audience, its potential to integrate easily into developers' workflows, and its independence from existing analysis platforms.
