I am hoping to kick this post series off where I plan to post interesting articles, guides and other finds that I come across during the week. The number of links and content may vary on a week to week basis and as I move forward with this project idea things may change as we move along.
- GIF production from asciinema – I have previously written about using asciinema in order to record the use of my scripts, however at times rather than linking to the video on the asciinema site, I’d rather bundle it in a to a gif. This is one of the main articles I used to achieve this.
- Big-O notation explained by a self-taught programmer – I came across this post earlier today as I was reading about the Big-O notation which is a concept relating to algorithms and how they respond to different inputs. The article is well explained and is part of a series that provides an easy to understand explanation.
- Stop using curl -u “user:password”! – This is a short but well written article that covers using the -n flag with curl and the .netrc file. This is a great way to prevent the credentials from showing up in the shell/terminal history files.
- Shortened URL Security – One of the main points I’ve taken away from this technique is adding + to the end of a shortened URL in order to reveal the destination link.
I hope that you find the above links useful and stay tuned for the next installment!
