Yesterday I spoke with Matt Tesauro, Product Security Engineering Lead at RackSpace. Matt also participates in the open source community groups on OWASP. Our discussion centered around open source usage at RackSpace, specifically the OpenStack Project, and how Matt manages the engineering team. Along the way, we even got to talk a little about how MineCraft is a good analogy for component based applications. Have a listen.
