Saltworks and Secure Code Warrior team up on secure coding
The partnership will elevate the importance and accessibility of certain code education and skills development and other AppSec programs for global enterprises.

Saltworks helps organizations build AppSec programs from policy to production, and Secure Warrior is a developer-centric learning solution that allows developers secure coding proficiency.

“Not only does Secure Code Warrior take a human-led approach in teaching and motivating developers to code securely, but it also drives training adoption throughout the development organization by providing positive skills-based pathways for developers in the language and framework of their choice,” said Dennis Hurst, the founder, and president of Saltworks. “Both are proven to increase developer speed, accuracy, and productivity.”

Camunda raises approximately $100 million.
The open-source company Camunda announced that it received around $100 in a Series B funding round led by Insight Partners.

Camunda enables companies to design, automate and improve businesses processes end-to-end while increasing business agility. It also allows organizations to overcome legacy digital transformation roadblocks and operations across different technologies, systems, infrastructures, people, and devices.

“Camunda was founded on the premise that making it easy for business stakeholders and developers to automate and improve business processes would have a transformational impact on organizations. Today’s funding underscores the tremendous value Camunda’s process automation software is providing to our users and customers every day,” said Jakob Freund, the CEO, and co-founder of Camunda.
