Developer's Focus Should Span More On This In 2023

The arguments of Reactjs or Vue, Tailwind or Bootstrap, Javascript or Typescript, and all... is over here on this blog. Yeah, I know I haven't talked more about that; just a few technical guide here that has helped beginners and intermediate developers.

But you know what? I made the best decision to explore the world of DevRel (Developer Relations) and Cybersecurity. There are many top developer blogs out there that I will recommend soon in my future article for you looking to understand the nitty-gritty of programming through documentation.

That's why I'm putting an end to discussing Frontend or Backend, but does that mean this blog is still not developer-friendly?

Why you shouldn't miss anything from me again

I'm excited to announce that my blog will now focus on DevRel and cybersecurity, specifically providing best practices for developers to create well-secured applications and software that are zero-vulnerable to threats and attacks.

The need for strong cybersecurity practices has become more critical as the world becomes increasingly reliant on technology. Cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated, making it necessary for developers to stay up-to-date on the latest best practices and techniques to secure their applications and software.

It is no secret that software vulnerabilities are a common entry point for cybercriminals looking to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data or systems. However, many people do not realize that developers are often among the key reasons why these vulnerabilities exist in the first place.

In fact, recent studies have shown that approximately 90% of reported security incidents are caused by human error, with developers being a significant contributing factor. This is because developers create the software and applications that run on our devices and networks. They play a crucial role in ensuring that these systems are secure and resilient to cyberattacks.

One of the main reasons why developers are often a weak link in cybersecurity is the complexity of modern software systems. Developers must work with a wide range of programming languages, frameworks, and third-party libraries, all of which may have their unique security risks and vulnerabilities. Moreover, they must often work under tight deadlines and budget constraints, which can lead to shortcuts and oversights that can compromise the security of their code.

Many developers lack the necessary cybersecurity training and expertise to secure their applications and software properly. According to a survey conducted by the software security firm Veracode, more than half of all developers receive no formal training in secure coding practices. Only 25% of organizations have a dedicated budget for application security.

However, the consequences of insecure software can be severe. In addition to the immediate financial costs of a data breach, companies can suffer long-term damage to their reputation, loss of customer trust, and even sometimes evict them out of business, leading to lost business and revenue. Identity theft and financial fraud breaches can have serious implications for individuals and even job loss for developers.

To address this issue, it is essential that developers receive the training, basic knowledge, and resources they need to create secure software by incorporating security into the software development lifecycle and utilizing secure coding practices and tools.

In addition, DevRel has emerged as a critical component of modern software development, with developers needing to create applications that are not only secure but also easy to use and understand. With both DevRel and cybersecurity, I hope to provide my fellow developers with the tools and knowledge they need to create successful applications that are both secure and user-friendly and how to get more from a developer community.

Final Thoughts

This blog will feature in-depth articles, tutorials, and expert insights on various topics related to DevRel and cybersecurity, including best practices for securing applications, techniques for mitigating common security threats, and strategies for building strong developer communities.

Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Happy Coding! Happy Payrolls!
