Tech

Blockchain

Seems to be on everyone's radar a secure decentralized tech for alt-currency tech, its quite amazing what netgineers have done with it. Notably cryptokitties and for music artists Ujo.

Interplanetary File System

Peer-to-peer for the web. No more central servers dictating uptime. More security features. View on github.

Docker and Containerization

While less secure than virtualization, it has proven useful for a lot of things. Such as microservices, testing on difference environments and giving consistency to builds/deployment.

Reactive Extensions

Interesting, misunderstood tech (not the javascript web framework). There is some math behind it all.

American Fuzzy Lop and Fuzz Testing

Lots of security patches due to this project from a google employee (see the trophy case).

Phoenix Framework and Elixir/Erlang

This promises to be a modern, ruby-like, easy to use web framework that delivers the scalability and stability of the erlang virtual machine.

Keybase

A nice solution for managing encryption and keys. Has a auto-encrypt file system and a chat client.
