Sugui Digest — SE01EP14 — Fear.
Hi everyone! Hope you´re safe and ready for a brand new edition of the digest. This week wasn´t warm in terms of technology, nothing much exciting but I tried to synthetise the 10% of all of my reading here. Fear is something terrible. It makes you freeze, makes you speechless and avoid you to take chances. For some time I had the fear of lose my loved ones, my job, my life. But what I fear today is to fall in oblivion, perfectly presented in Pixar animation Coco. To that not happen and enjoy life (that´s too short by the way) my advice is to dive in what makes you freeze. Take your chance, the outcomes will surprise you! Have a great week!
To your ears, Jack Johnson — From Here To Now To You. This album is important to me after all because in a very strange time of my life I decided to take a month at the beach, working from there to reshape all of my thoughts regarding my family and relationships. Tough times, but good memories.
Book of the Week: Dream Big — Cristiane Correa. A contemporary classic, inspiring and a way to several developments. Two of my favourites are Vicente Falconi school, with zero-based budget and how to optimize costs (try his book either) and Carlos Brito, an inspirational leader. Some of professionals who worked with them has made major companies such the largest student exchange company in Brazil (where I lived some of that dream for a while) and served as inspiration to the largest brokerage firm in Brazil. Just with this book and people and business orbiting it, we could make an edition just with their culture. But we know ain´t nobody got time for that, so the video below is a great short vision of what they do.
*Data scientist, Cloud Architect, Solutions Engineer, but, what about a degree in NINJA?
*Don´t know about you, but The Office keeps being one of more funny serial that I´ve ever watched. Mashable has made a catch-up with the 65 most-funny sequels of all time.
*This week, Google Cloud Platform has announced the Active Assistant, which will help you out in suggestions of use of the cloud, leveraging AI, ML and insights from your environments to make you have the most of cloud computing.

*Talking about Alphabet, Google has made public a great vulnerability scan called Tsunami, what according to git is: “A general purpose network security scanner with an extensible plugin system for detecting high severity vulnerabilities with high confidence.” It´s in pre-alpha so, be carefully, read the small words and run it!
*Remember last week when I talked about my nightmares regarding low-code platforms? Our friend from Youtube channel DevAWS made a demo of AWS Honeycode just proving my point of view (yes, it´s terrible).
*Feel inspired to created an Youtube channel, make some livestreams or record those ridiculous TikTok dances? Check this gear guide of essentials to make it possible.
*HEY mail app has some oddities such its 99USD annual subscription for manage guess what: email. They migrated from GKE to EKS and the stack is not so impressive.
*F-5 BigIP has a security flaw discovered this past week and need to be patched immediately due to its criticality. What are we talking about? With a single URL manipulation it lets the malicious attacker has the admin password of the equipment. Even baby monitors are critical when has this kind of flaw, imagine one of the most powerful network equipments of the market. Check the video below how the attack works:
*Fxmsp notorius kazakh hacker has been arrested. Why the note about him? He orchestrated attacks through 44 countries, more than 300 companies including McAfee and governments being active for more than 3 years under the radar.
*In my eternal meetings, suspicious managers always ask me around the vendor lock-in of AWS Lambda. I always talk about other vendors FaaS offerings and open source alternatives such as Knative. For a better understanding of how Lambda is not an offender in that matter, check this article and have your own thoughts. (please someone write something regarding the multicloud agnosticity “strategy”).
*This week, new Google Nest (former Home) has been announced with their new family member equipment. The personal assistants war with Alexas, Siris and Nests has a new contender. Uneatable that Google assistant is the most mature and understandable personal assistant. But Alexa is running close.
