The Content Security Policy specification is a mechanism web applications can use to mitigate a broad class of content injection vulnerabilities, such as cross-site scripting (XSS). Content Security Policy is a declarative policy that lets web developers inform the client about the sources from which the application expects to load resources.
Eva Andreasson explains the various Hadoop technologies and how they interact, real-time queries with Impala, the Hadoop ecosystem including Hue, Oozie, YARN, and much more.
Erik Meijer explains the various aspects needed to categorise data stores, how reactive programming fits in with databases, the return to data transformation, denotational semantics, and much more.
Damian Conway explains where Perl 5.x is used today and why (hint: the CPAN library repository), and what Perl 6 offers: modern OOP, an optional type system, libraries for parallelism and concurrency, and very powerful built-in tools for parsing including extensible grammars.
