Geek Reading: Threads, Validation, Phishing

There was no major news from yesterday, so our focus will just be on good content: we link to posts about threaded coding, computer science data competitions, and facebook phishing.

Ilya Sher gives us an excellent article on threads, race conditions, and deadlock. This is a good read for anyone that needs to write code using threads or locks. On FastML, they talk about adversarial validation, something that is somewhat common in data science competitions. More importantly, it shows the need for good test and validation data. Adam Caudill has an interesting post about seamless phishing. The examples with Facebook apps are very interesting because they show how simple it could be to use a malicious app.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
