What have I been reading this week? (20160327)

Much this past week's free time was spent experimenting with Monit, Bitlbee, Openfire, and Docker. Specifically, writing/tweaking code that connects to Openfire, checks for the presences of specific bots, and (if needed) restarts the missing bot's Docker container. Fun, huh?

I'm also studying for two tests in the month of April so my reading lists may be a bit short for a while. In any case, this weeks reading included the following:

2016-03-24

- Google opens access to its speech recognition API going head to head with Nuance
- Docker now has native Mac and Windows apps

2016-03-26

- Certified Ethical Hacker website caught spreading crypto ransomware
- Cryptography Is Harder Than It Looks
- Stealthy malware targeting air-gapped PCs leaves no trace of infection
- Having cheap PCB s made part 2.

2016-03-27

- Amazon's Raspberry Pi guide lets coders use Alexa - BBC News
- Adventures in Narrated Reality
- From fuzzing to bug reporting
