Give me 5 minutes and I'll teach you everything about object-oriented programming:

Documented by: @ChrisStaud Image
1. Object-oriented programming (OOP) is a programming paradigm in which programs are designed using classes and objects.

This design allows related functions and data to be grouped together in self-contained and reusable units.
2. A class is a template or blueprint from which objects are made from.

Classes define the properties and methods that an object can have, and objects are unique instances of a class.

A short but necessary thread on how to Maximize your LinkedIn profile for success and visibility. LinkedIn works best when you realize that its a tool that most Recruiters, Talent Acquisition and HR Personnel use to find and recruit new potential employees. #BlackTechTwitter /1
You might not be aware but Recruiters have a different view on LinkedIn, this is by design to allow them to parse, narrow and target specific people based on the information provided. For recruiters it starts at this screen. Where they start the search off. /2 ImageImage
Our searches usually begin with Profile Job title, Location and a few different skills. The first opportunity you have to improve your profile's visibility and show up on a Recruiter's search is to put the Job title you have/want in your Headline caption. /3 Image

Folks, there's some stuff going on with #BlackTechTwitter that's not my place to speak on- but some friends gave me a heads up so I'm on standby in case what I bring can be helpful.
I will say something on the overall issue of bootcamps and mentorship.
Years and years ago a Black-American woman DMed me about what frameworks and languages I recommended. I gave her good advice- for my ecosystem "Oh, start with what your friends are doing, they'll have access to work in those areas". Because in Shenzhen- we're all in tech🤦🏻‍♀️
"Waddya mean you don't know any programmers?" 😅Remember when I was getting started I could pop on WeChat and talk to engineers at Tencent, Huawei- you name it. I'm a Shenzhen girl I either knew someone or could get to someone. The idea of not having a *single* "in" blew my mind.

It's dishonesty. What Mary did and has continued to do is be dishonest. Image
She lifted resources from other content creators and led people to believe they were her's based on "years" of experience. Image

My quick and dirty list of not-so-obvious complementary skills for Detection Engineers. These are the things I study on my "low-tech" days. Most of these are mindset/procces centric and require minimal technology. #infosec #CyberSecurity #DetectionEngineers #BlackTechTwitter
First up, Statistical Analysis. Statistical analysis is the process of collecting and analyzing data in order to discern patterns and trends. This is useful when establishing baselines and identifying anomalies.…
Second, Reasoning. Understanding the different types of reasoning and when you should apply them will allow you to efficiently analyze massive amounts of data.…

Here’s my quick an dirty lab workout for Detection Engineers. I do this work out 2 to 3 times a week for about 2 hours. #CyberSecurity #infosec #BlackTechTwitter
First you’ll need a lab. I don’t romanticize the struggles of building a lab. Sure, you learn a lot but you’re trying to start building detections. So I recommend using an automated set up like this one.…
Next, you’ll need a way to simulate a text to your environment. My favorite for beginners is @redcanary’s atomic request team…

Today's lab consisted of testing a theory from my @Fortinet NSE4 and NSE5: To connect FortiGates to FortiManager and FortiAnazyler from across the WAN using a VIP.


Mapping a specific IP address to another specific IP address is usually called Destination NAT (DNAT). FortiOS calls this a Virtual IP address (VIP). DNAT, or VIP, is are used to map an external IP address to an IP address or address range.
The mapping can include all TCP/UDP ports or, if port forwarding is enabled, it only refers to the specific configured ports.

A few months ago, I got a promotion at #Meta with a $50K raise.

I immediately updated my resume b/c I knew I was worth more than that.

I landed a job at #Google that increased my compensation by over $150K.

#BlackTechTwitter #TechTwitter
Tech is one of the few industries where women and BIPOC can be compensated fairly without going to war with their colleagues and bosses.

That kind of stress will take years off of your life. (Google: Racism as a public health issue.)
So, how did I know that I was worth more?
By using resources like and TeamBlind.

Know your worth. Then, add tax!

I thought this was common knowledge by now, but software engineers at “big tech” and in some of the major tech hubs in the US makes lots of money. I’d encourage you to look at to see the potential earnings at these companies. #techtwitter #BlackTechTwitter
That said this is about potential. This site doesn’t show how many people exists at these levels, let alone how many underrepresented people exist at some of these levels.
At Microsoft about 5.6% (…) of the population is black and I know, just by looking around that there are a lot fewer in the upper echelons of levels. The percentages are more abysmal the further up the chain you go.

Q: What is a model?

A: a simplified process that represents how networks function.

So not this diva. The other type of model.

Hey #BlackTechTwitter in Europe or willing to relocate: my company is looking for an Engineering Manager to come support my teams while I'll leave for my maternity leave ❤️ You will support a one of a kind diverse crowd, while participating in making this world a better place 🌿
We're very bad at sharing our work on making our workplace a diverse and inclusive one, but if data is your jam, in Engineering we are ~50% not identifying as men, ~15/20% identifying as bipoc, 50% women in manager position (yours truly too, who enters in all these categories!)
I don't touch about neurodiversity (hello, still talking about me! 👋🏾) and disability, but I'm truly proud of how my company embraces everyone's differences in a respectful way. We're not perfect, but we want to embody the values we also share in our work field and commitment.

A short Thread about Online Password Security.

More than 80% of the global population have at least two online passwords and more than 80% of that 80% use insecure passwords or simply reuse a single password for multiple websites/apps.

#BlackTechTwitter #100DaysOfHacking #Web3
That’s a problem in this age of modern cybercrime: The theft/exposure of one password could open you up to cascade of account breaches leading to data, identity, and financial losses.

#BlackTechTwitter #100DaysOfHacking #Web3
Talk to a cybersecurity pro about passwords, and they’ll tell you two things: Every password should be unique (You can hardly achieve that) and secure (The more secure it is, the higher the chance you will forget them).
