Technology Short Take 159

Welcome to Technology Short Take #159! If you’re interested in finding some links to articles around the web on topics like WASM, Git, Sigstore, or EKS—among other things—then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve spent the last few weeks collecting articles I think you’ll find useful, gleaning them from the depths of Twitter, RSS feeds, Reddit, and Slack. Enjoy, and never stop learning!




Cloud Computing/Cloud Management

Operating Systems/Applications

  • Felix Krause caused quite a stir with his revelation that a number of iOS apps are “able to track every single interaction with external websites, from all form inputs like passwords and addresses, to every single tap.” More details are available here.
  • Leigh McCulloch shows how to push to multiple remotes at once.
  • And while we’re speaking of Git, Nick Janetakis shows how to use git shortlog to see all kinds of useful information about a repository.
  • This list of macOS defaults commands may be useful for those who like to tweak their systems.
  • This article by Jacob Davis-Hansson on how your Makefiles are wrong was informative. Some tips didn’t apply to me (not surprisingly, macOS is stuck with an old version of make), but I did learn a few things from the article.
  • Howard Oakley has a great article on macOS memory (as seen via Activity Monitor).



Career/Soft Skills

It’s time to wrap up now; I hope that you found something useful. If you have any feedback (all constructive feedback is welcome!), please feel free to reach out to me. You can find me on Twitter, or in any number of different Slack communities. Thanks for reading!
