Do you need to be ceritified? Is certification a good measure of someone's knowledge? Does certification means that you're really an expert? Let's see!

In August I found (hit) a bug in +Juniper Networks​ case manager which let me access to +Akamai Technologies​ data.

I informed #Juniper SIRT and Akamai's #security team immediately to fix the issue.

After a while, Akamai's head of #security got in touch with me and sent me some #gifts to appreciate what I did.
Among all the gifts, I like the card the most. It's handwritten and signed by Akamai's security team, which makes it highly valuable to me.

This is the manner of a #professional #company!

از اولین زمانی که با اینترنت آشنا شدم (سال ۲۰۰۰) دلم میخواسته برای خودم صفحه ی شخصی و مخاطبای مختلف داشته باشم… فکر میکنم این شاید دهمین دامنه ی شخصیم باشه. اما متاسفانه هیچوقت در نوشتن پست فارسی موفق نبودم.

طی چندسال اخیر قصد داشتم تا واقعا یه وبلاگ ساده ی فارسی راه بیاندازم و اتفاقات روزمره ای که برام میافته و ممکنه به اشتراک گذاشتنش به بقیه کمکی کنه رو، آنلاین یادداشت کنم...

این اولین پست وبلاگ رسمی فارسی من، محمد مقدس، هست. شرح مختصر در رابطه با اینکه چی میخوام بنویسم...
