Today we continue our discussion of security, concentrating this week on our own security. We talk about our use of two-factor authentication, password managers, full-disk encryption, backups, and Charles’ recent experiments with a VPN.
Release Notes 2017
We’re happy to announce that Release Notes 2017, the third edition of our conference, will be happening October 16-18, 2017 – and this time we’re taking the show on the road to Chicago! We’re really excited about the move to Chicago and the extra opportunities that the change in venue will provide. More details will be announced on the conference website at 2017.releasenotes.tv and on our mailing list in a month or two. In the mean time, mark your calendars. We hope to see you there!
Every month there are more great articles and content about the business of Mac and iOS development than we have time to discuss on the show. If you’d like to receive our monthly newsletter with the best of these links, be sure to sign up for our mailing list at http://releasenotes.tv/mailinglist.
