One night in Brandenburg: A newbie’s-eye-view on the 2019 Contentful offsite

It’s a bit daunting to spend 48 hours trapped in a hotel in the middle of the German countryside with 200 people you don’t know that well. This is the idea behind the tech company tradition we all know and love called an “offsite”: Get everyone in one remote place, mix in a few drinks, a few workshops, maybe a pool. The question is, does it work? Can you bring everyone into the fold within just 48 hours?

Protecting your Contentful accounts with Have I Been Pwned?

If you’ve been blocked creating a new password, don’t worry it’s not just you. While a six character password made up of just letters might have been sufficient in the past, now the standard is at least eight, with numbers and symbols mixed in. If your password looks like your cat walked across your keyboard, that’s good. But a password that looks like a keyboard-bashing isn’t your only defense, there’s also tools like “Have I been Pwned” and “Pwned passwords” to help protect your accounts against hackers.
