Yesterday, the Swetugg conference in Stockholm, Sweden, gathered hundreds of developers for a full day of talks and best practices. Detectify’s software engineer Martina Janevska was one of this year’s speakers. Martina used her own 2-year old code to demonstrate how much she has learnt about security since she started to work at Detectify – with her new security skillset, she actually hacked her old code to find out how vulnerable it was at the time she built it.
Few people know Detectify’s website as well as our web developer Martina Janevska. Originally from Macedonia, Martina moved to Sweden to do a master’s in software engineering and joined Detectify’s web development team in the spring of 2015. We talked to her about her work, how she maintains a security-oriented mindset, and what it takes to be a successful developer.
