Personal Security Checklist
After leading my first Intro to Security for Developers workshop I realized my attendees felt a little overwhelmed and fearful instead of empowered. They didn’t know where to start in how to secure their own personal accounts and devices.
I made this checklist so that people would have a hit list of actions they could take immediately after a digital security training. Though the checklist is hosted on GitHub it’s not targeted at only developers. I list what I believe are the security essentials that everyone regardless of their job or threat model should configure.
Intro to Security for Developers
I created this two hour long workshop as we had a lot of great developer tech talks at Women Who Code DC but none that focused on web application security. I wanted to distil what I had learned after my first year of Mapbox into a workshop with code samples that people could refer to later as a reference. The presentation has a special focus on Node.js since that’s what I use at Mapbox.
Volunteer + Meetups
Here are some organizations I volunteer with or Meetups I attend:
- Women Who Code DC
- DCFemTech and DCFemTech Hack for Good
- Code for DC
- I haven’t been to this in a long time due to personal bandwidth and I’m looking for more contributors to take over the WABA Bike Map project. Please contact me if you’re interested.
DC Tech Women and Enby Websites
I created this project in 2015 when I was putting together my personal website for the first time. I realized there were lots of awesome women and enbies (non-binary people) in DCTech who also happened to have awesome personal websites. I wanted to gather them all and share them with the world to inspire others and showcase their accomplishments! This project could use some serious updating - please open a new issue or submit a new pull request.
Military Brat Map
I get asked a lot where I’m from. Given I’m a military brat, it’s much easier to explain with a map. At Mapbox everyone has to make a map as part of onboarding and this is what I made. I would love to upgrade it from mapbox.js to Mapbox GL JS sometime.
I’m currently working through GMB.io’s Rings 1 program. I also attend group CrossFit classes 2-3x a week for strength and conditioning. Here are some movements or PRs I can’t do yet but that I’m currently working on as of September 2017:
- strict ring muscle up
- straight arm piked leg skin the cat (rings)
- tuck to tuck shoulder stand (rings)
- strict handstand push up (wall supported)
- freebalancing handstand
- 10 strict fixed bar pull ups
- 1 pistol squat on my left leg without a counterweight or having to hold my right foot
Here are some calisthenics moves and PRs I have conquered that I am particularly proud of:
- 5 strict ring dips
- 8 strict fixed bar pull ups
- 5 pistol squats (right leg only)
- 205lb conventional deadlift (~1.5x bodyweight)
- 1:53 500m row on erg
