RosettaCode: cool way to improve your coding skills

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/22

Wow: I feel like having lived under a stone for 8 years, as RosettaCode has been alive since it was founded in 2007 by Mike Mol.

The idea is that you solve a task and learn from that, or learn by seeing how others have solved tasks or draft tasks.

So in a sense it is similar to the Rosetta stone: it has different languages phrasing the same tasks.

There are already a whole bunch of languages on RosettaCode (of which a few are in the categories below), and you can even suggest or add your own languages.

When you want to solve tasks, be sure to look at the list unimplemented tasks by language that leads to automatic reports by language (for instance two of the languages I use most often: C# and Delphi).

I’m sure there are lots of programming chrestomathy sites, even beyond the ones, and it feels very similar to programming kata sites.

Cross-site Scripting (XSS) – OWASP

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/12

When I look what is possible with Cross-site Scripting (XSS), then I wonder how you can defend your site to any and all of these and future attacks.

Coming from a desktop application and back-end background, the jungle of the web keeps being overwhelming.

Some links on SSPI/NTLM base64

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/03

I bumped into some issues for a client/server project that tried to perform its own SSPI/NTLM base64 authentication on the server side.

Some links that helped me debug that combo:
