Developer, architect, project manager, tester, and active DevOps supporter, I'm specializing myself in quality and productivity for the last two years, studying, observing and advising companies which have an important risk to fail their IT-related projects.

I worked with Microsoft stack for seven years, but recently started to build Linux-based DevOps infrastructure, learning Linux, bash, Python, Node.js, MongoDB, RabbitMQ, Redis and dozens of other things and completely loving it.

I'm also interested by photography and recently started shooting videos.

I'm mostly active on Programmers.SE, and also maintain my blog.

@CD001: that's why using randomly generated passphrases instead of randomly generated passwords was suggested, with the benefit of being much, much user friendly.

comment Is automatically generating passwords during registration a good idea?
@kat0r: yes, in general. There are still some marginal cases where it's not the case. One case is when a hacker can just configure the mail account to forward all e-mails to him: he can't ask for password reset, because this may look suspicious for the owner of the e-mail account.

comment Open sourcing or rewriting proprietary code
@gbjbaanb: your first sentence is misleading. In many cases, code written on company PCs during working hours belongs to the company. You can't just assert that you have donated the code to the company, because you have no rights in relation to this code in the first place.
