Happy Friday all!
I’m just a couple days away from my next big trip, so this past week has been all about session prep and getting the travel ducks all in a row. And that actually means making sure all my charging cables are packed and I have some movies and books downloaded to watch and read on the plane ride.
I’ll be in Orlando, Florida all next week for TechMentor/Live!360. Thankfully, my trip will be just after the most recent tropical storm subsides. The weather forecast for next week looks phenomenal.
If you remember from earlier this year, I was at the TechMentor event in Redmond on the Microsoft campus. This is an extension of that event. If you’re reading this and you happen to also be there next week, come find me. It would be great to shake hands. Also, if you happen to have a physical copy of the Must Learn KQL book, bring it along. I’ll be happy to sign in. And, if you don’t have a copy and want one, I’ll have a stack of signed books to give away during my sessions.
This week, we’d love if you could participate in the following survey to help us continue to build a better product.
Pull Request Annotations in Defender for DevOps
Our Defender for DevOps team would like your feedback on the Pull Request annotations feature.
Defender for DevOps exposes security findings as annotations in Pull Requests (PR). Security operators can enable PR annotations in Microsoft Defender for Cloud. Any exposed issues can then be remedied by developers. This process can prevent and fix potential security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they enter the production stage. Defender for DevOps annotates the vulnerabilities within the differences in the file rather than all the vulnerabilities detected across the entire file. Developers are able to see annotations in their source code management systems and Security operators can see any unresolved findings in Microsoft Defender for Cloud.
Speaking of Must Learn KQL, the seasonal holiday editions of everything in the merch store are now available. And there’s new stuff, too. Here’s what’s available:
[1] The ever-popular holiday coffee cup is back for the season!
[2] There’s a seasonal KQL song! Yes, a song. And it’s brandished on three different styles of long sleeve t-shirt:
[3] And, then there’s my new absolute favorite (I’ll be wearing this at TechMentor next week!), the KQL'Ling t-shirt:
As always, all profit from the Must Learn KQL merch sales goes directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. So, you can feel good about getting yourself something (and your geeky loved ones) and helping others at the same time.
That’s it from me for this week.
Talk soon.
