Transform incident management with machine learning and analytics to help you maintain optimal performance and availability while keeping pace with the growing demands of digital business with this eBook, brought to you in partnership with BMC.

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.
