Progress goes on

I am thrilled that we are moving a project to Java 11. I know there are even latests versions out there, but for me it seems good achievement already.

I am working with the team to have good coverage for critical components and security is a big focus.

The challenge in software development when you start from an already established product is how to balance between security and usability.

There are many things to consider, including the GDPR regulations.

What you need to do is:
1️⃣​ Identify critical users and if you can, please present them solution in advance to get their feedback.
2️⃣​ Identify critical customer data and how long you must keep it and how to store it securely
3️⃣​ Identify the attack surface of your application and how you can mitigate any potential attacker’s attempt.
4️⃣​ Priorities all the user stories you had identified. Remember, there won’t be enough time for everything, so work incrementally.

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
