Recommended Readings From This Week

- Survival of the Richest: Being human is a team sport, although not everybody agrees
- LavaRand in Production: The Nitty-Gritty Technical Details: I reread this regularly and I am still somewhat fascinated.
- Stop using JWT for sessions: Excellent overview of where and how not to use JWT
