Reverse Engineering In Software

What is Reverse Engineering?

It is human nature to be curious about the world and how things work and then how to manipulate them. Imagine a growing baby. “What’s this thing attached to my body? Oh, an arm! I can move it! Hey, that shiny object sure looks interesting. Maybe I can use this arm thing to get it closer. There we go, now to just pick it up and taste it...”

Using Docker for Internal Tools & Infrastructure

Docker is a containerization solution that allows apps to run in a sandboxed environment that includes all the dependencies they will need without the additional overhead of a virtual machine. This sounds great--we can containerize our applications and deploy them, no more server provisioning and maintenance! Unfortunately, this is way more difficult than it sounds if a zero-downtime solution is needed. If you are just deploying a small-scale app without a cluster of servers, you will have downtime while Docker stops the existing app container and starts the container with your new code.

Apple’s new UITest suite has some developers excited, and others disappointed in lost functionality. UITest works differently than the functional testing solutions developers have come to rely on, such as KIF. Instead of giving you access to elements themselves, UITest gives access to proxy elements with minimal parameters to interact with. Learning to separate unit testing and unit based uitesting from functional testing can be a frustrating experience, especially when working with a new framework that still has its own kinks to work out. It is my hope the following guide will help developers form some clarity into the methodology needed when working with UITest.
