This week on the DevNews podcast...

@saronyitbarek and I chatted about some pretty fascinating software development-centric stories:

  • Apple's server problems — slowdowns and crashes for app launching in all versions of MacOS 😱
  • The rise of school districts being the targets of ransomware attacks
  • GitHub reinstating youtube-dl

We also talked about the data location industry and who is being targeted with Senior Staff Writer at Motherboard, Joseph Cox. Joseph wrote a piece called “How the U.S. Military Buys Location Data from Ordinary Apps" which made Saron and I pretty excited to get his perspective on this topic!
