A dirty dozen of software development pitfalls-and how to avoid these all-too-common programming blunders.

Just as the art world is filled with wildly divergent opinions about what makes a great work of art, programmers often disagree upon what makes for great code, at least beyond the basic requirement that it shouldn't crash.

Every developer has their own set of rules and guidelines. When a developer says not to do something, it's probably because they did it once and failed badly. But new issues can arise when we overcompensate for a mistake by running in the opposite direction.

Application security is inseparable from network security. As such, enterprises must now take a holistic approach to securing networks and the applications within them.

Network security protects your network and data from breaches, intrusions, and other threats. It is a broad term that describes hardware and software solutions and processes that can protect network usage and accessibility and mitigate threats to a corporate network.

Network security includes access control, antivirus software, application security, network analysis, specific security solutions for endpoints, local area networks (LAN), wide area networks (AWN) and wireless networks, firewalls, VPN encryption, and more.
