Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps


While Microsoft may not feel at home in a mobile world, it seems to be giving hints and indications that it will be dumping .NET and focusing on HTML5 and JavaScript. While it's great to see Microsoft take HTML5 more seriously, dumping .NET may be a premature decision that will come back to bite them in the wallet.
