Links of the Week 3

Sorry for the delay but this week I was out in Bertinoro following a PhD school. Therefore I didn't have time to update my blog. Anyway here's what happened online during my absence:

  • Two researchers from Bromium Labs published a technical white paper describing how to bypass the security measurements of EMET. You can take a look at the white paper here.

  • I don't know why I didn't discovered this before, but now it is possible to write Scala code that gets compiled to Javascript thanks to Scala.js. It is still an experiment and blah blah, but you can play with it using Scala js fiddle

  • If you think that this is not hipster enough I know a project you might like: Nodyn: a node.js compatible framework, running on the JVM powered by the DynJS Javascript runtime running under vert.x - the polyglot application platform and event bus (unbelievable).

  • Still wondering how Shazam works? Well time to clean things up with this article describing how Dejavu works

  • I am gonna leave you with the last link of the week, that describes how to implement a JIT compiled language with Haskell and LLVM. Long read but worth it.
