The OWASP CSRFProtector project started with an aim to develop a solution that can mitigate Cross Site Request Forgery in web applications without much developer effort. The most common solution for mitigating CSRF is using a token which cannot be retrieved by the attacker, thus ensuring the authenticity of the incoming request to the server.

Recently I tried to create a proof of concept on integrating an IDE (VS Code), Version Control System (git, github) & a team communication platform (slack). The problem statement might sound more of a first world problem or possibly not even that: Say a group of software engineers are working on a project and the team

I joined Microsoft IDC, Hyderabad last week 🙂 Joining a company with more than 100,000 employees is a lot more complex than it might sounds, and the existence of a strong on-boarding process is key to let the new hires perform as fast as possible. — Someone on Internet, Very true. The Onboarding process involved

How do we implement notifications, realtime scores etc. We would implement long polling method, use server sent events or since few years we have been using the web sockets. Advantage with the web sockets is, it maintains a persistent connection with server, cutting off all the overhead related to establishing the http connection again and again.

Now that I have learned to make chrome extensions, I just can’t stand user interface that’s not friendly to me. This time its wikipedia. So the problem I face with wiki is its too much information at a place and for a person like me who find it very difficult to read, a lot of

This is a totally fun project which I intend to do very slowly, and add codes to in my free time or if I get some cool ideas. So what’s Github Report: its another chrome extension that shows more information on Github profile page, than Github actually does. So the work flow is you install this extension,

This post covers : What’s a bezier equation? Creating a 3d surface patch using Bezier curves Making it interactive So what’s a Bezier curve:  Its a cubic parametric curve used to draw smooth curves, we can draw a bezier curve using two endpoints and two control points. It looks something like: Interested in reading more?
