Heard about the three S’s before a date? Well, come and find out what my take on that is and I am sure you would be surprised. You will also hear me cover some of the latest security bugs in software and how that might relate to your soul. A strange combination? Maybe not: I believe that yesterday’s faith is as good today as ever. Come discover how we can clean up our code and our soul.
