“Our mission is to make open source security easy and thus help developers take ownership of securing their projects without slowing down,” said Guy Podjarny, CEO of Snyk. “I’m excited to partner with Atlassian and deliver such a seamless and automated integration across this platform’s powerful workflows, helping Bitbucket developers everywhere use open source and stay secure.”

Google makes effort to help reskill the workforce
Google has long been trying to help reskill the workforce for the digital age. Now, as part of its Grow with Google initiative, its Applied Digital Skills program is partnering with the Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE) to teach educators across the United States essential digital skills. This will allow educators to be better able to help adults find jobs, build businesses, or work towards earning high school equivalency credentials.
“I know firsthand that learning never ends,” wrote Hai Hong, Computer Science Education program manager at Google. “As an immigrant to the United States from a working class family, a former community college instructor, and now a Googler leading outreach for computer science and digital skills training, I know education is an ongoing process. We’re excited to be a part of that process with the teachers who make learning a reality, organizations like COABE who support educators and the Americans who wake up every day ready to take their next step.”
