Neat things from around the internet. Today - canaries, art and budgets.
It’s been a while! I have a folder full of drafts, but haven’t had much time to publish anything. Here’s a little something, meatier posts are incoming.
- This is probably a bit old now, but a canary release of Microsoft Edge is available for MacOS. Seeing the Edge logo in my MacOS toolbar is a little trippy, and will be even trippier when it’s blue.
- Postman also has a new canary release out, this one featuring support for GraphQL. This is a feature I’ve been awaiting for a long time, and I’m really enjoying playing with it so far!
- Katrina Clokie is one of my favourite presenters-slash-writers on testing and software engineering. Her keynote from STAREAST on Test Automation as Art is totally worth a watch. I’m especially inspired by the second section around declaring a vision for test automation. I don’t think I’ve ever worked in a team that has done this explicitly (but I’d like to).
- While we’re talking art, my buddy Dan has been playing around with CSS art. Check out this old timey camera he’s drawn just using CSS and HTML. I love this stuff.
- The NZ Government’s budget was leaked early thanks to a security flaw. It raises some interesting questions as to the morality and legality of this behaviour, as breach came from people within government. Stuff.co.nz has a video demonstration of how it was done. (Thanks Vincent for the article!)
- This blog post from portswigger about finding security flaws in Firefox is great. Well worth taking the time to read and understand, and practicing the examples.
