My career radar is leading me towards more secure and reliable programming.

Two languages that I'm exploring outside the job are Ada and Erlang/Elixir. Not because they are hot like the latest JavaScript framework, but because "we" need them. These two fill different niches, but can work together to provide something better than the broken IoT with it's exploitability.

Boy, if you find good resources, or can point people in the way of more secure programming, I'd love some short articles that might help people adopt better practices. We need lots of better examples, even rewriting common examples from MSDN/etc that show better, secure programming.

Very good article. I'd give it multiple likes, if I could. I haven't time right now, but I intend to go back to that blog post you referenced by Eugene Meidinger. I definitely think that keeping an eye on what's coming and perhaps more important what you resonate with it very important. But I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of a "Career Radar". Sounds like its companies who update information about various technologies that are of interest to you. Kind of like a focused career related dashboard, I guess. Don't know if I've got the idea correct or not, but that's how it's looking to me at the moment. Anyway, I'll keep my eye on this idea.

Kindest Regards,Rod

In my hobby I'm dealing with devices and controllers for radios and such that are mainly Linux or RTOS. C/C++ has a monopoly on the OS and hardware drivers, but is difficult for all but the most professional to keep secure and a low rate of bugs. Rust isn't mature yet. So on the low end Ada is useful considering it's design/history and Erlang is designed for soft real-time at a higher level. Elixir runs on the same VM/library as Erlang. (Check out the Nerves project.)

I'm not sure how my hobby coding is useful to the SQL Server/.NET/Python world at work and on SQL Server Central, the languages, tools and mindset aren't as similar. Some of the practices like testing are... But my hobbies usually evolve into jobs and my jobs evolve into hobbies. I'm considering taking my database skills and helping audit some public tax records for anomalies, due to some local corruption...

We have added some Erlang modules on to our mainly Python application for enhanced security in some areas...
