awesome-leading-and-managing - Awesome List of resources on leading people and being a manager


Since 2013-ish, Joe Goldberg, who created the original document inspiring this list, read a crap-ton of books and articles about "leadership" and "management" and took notes along the way. He shared it with friends who were transitioning to management roles and eventually decided to open-source it. Here you'll find Joe's still-public document, which provides meatier summaries of the articles you'll find listed here as well as lots of supplementary notes. In summer 2017 Lauri Apple found out about Joe's docs via Software Lead Weekly and asked Joe about posting the contents to GitHub. He gave the greenlight. Lauri changed up the format (very brief blurbs), turned the doc into an Awesome List, and has continued adding new entries ever since. Helping out with the initial upload were a team of Lauri's former colleagues at Zalando. These days the list receives contributions from people around the world.

awesome-diversity - A curated list of amazingly awesome articles, websites and resources about diversity in technology


This list contains a variety of resources on diversity, more specifically diversity in tech, including posts, talks, actionable resources, conferences, social media advocates and more. The goal of the list is to provide quick access to information on diversity to tech companies and communities that are willing to do better in their everyday actions to make the tech industry a more inclusive place, and to individuals that look for further reading on topics that might interest them about diversity and equity in the tech field. Always work in progress.

diversity-index - A curated Diversity-Index of grants, scholarships and FA that encourages diversity in STEM fields aimed at half the world's population, Women!


Women are half the world's population and despite the uproar over the lack of diversity in the Computer Science field, they hardly get any financial support for higher studies or opportunities to attend conferences. There are attempts to bridge this gap with grants in highly developed nations, especially in North America, Europe and other first-world countries. There are hardly any avenues for helping women from low- and middle-income countries living in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) as defined by the United Nations (UN). This repo is an attempt to measure the international diversity index when we talk of diversity and women - words that should encompass women from all over the world, but a disparity of unequal proportions is created when diversity grants and financial aid opportunities are restricted to women who are citizens of the first-world developed countries that have a higher earning parity based on their gross national income (GNI). Altruism to women who already enjoy facilities and privileges that women living in a third world country dont have access to, nor dream of, creates a dichotomy of unequals and this invisible inequality is deliberately ignored and never quantified by women-in-tech groups and the situation is worse in FOSS.

women-in-tech-datasets - Two-fold project

  •    HTML

Two-fold project. 1) Collect women in tech data for reporting and accountability work. 2) Provide an interesting dataset for teaching women about data. Hosting for this project is sponsored by Neurensic. People talk about the lack of women in tech but tend to avoid the data, measurement, and SMART goals needed to make a huge change. By collating data about the problem in one place we make it easier to hold individuals accountable for the action(s) and/or in-action(s).

selfrando - Function order shuffling to defend against ROP and other type of code reuse

  •    C++

Software written in C and C++ is exposed to exploitation of memory corruption. Compilers and operating systems include various exploit mitigation mechanisms that prevent certain offensive techniques. Unfortunately, standard mitigations lag behind the offensive techniques used in exploits against browsers, servers, and other frequently targeted software and do not stop a well-resourced adversary. selfrando can be used to harden your software beyond what is possible with current mitigations. Inspired by biodiversity in nature and existing randomizing defenses, selfrando varies the attack surface, i.e., the code layout, by randomizing each function separately. This makes exploit writing harder and increases resilience to information leakage relative to traditional address space layout randomization (ASLR) techniques.
