Other improvements include an added V8 crash message and location information to crashReport parameters and improved performance for sending wide objects over the context bridge.

No Code App Generator, CodeBot UX is available to early access users
With CodeBot, users can generate full-stack applications from a domain model, while its newly engineered UX components allow users a smoother and centralized approach towards app generation.

CodeBot UX supports UML models including class diagrams, state machines and wireframes. From these, CodeBot generates a database schema, API documentation, server-side code, client-side code including domain classes, CRUD functions and usage examples.

CodeBot can also automatically host one’s generated web application in the cloud with the click of a button. CodeBot UX initially targets React, but will soon build equivalent user interfaces for React Native, Vue.js and Angular.

Build.security emerges from stealth with $6 million in backing
Build.security aims to dramatically simplify the process of building authorization and cutting down development time with its open policy agent-powered authorization policy management platform.

“build.security’s innovative approach allows developers to focus on developing apps at unprecedented speed without the burden of Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC) implementation weighing them down,” said George Kurtz, the CEO and cofounder of CrowdStrike.

The company’s solution offers a unified pane of glass that enables developers to easily author, evaluate, distribute and monitor policies at scale, policy-as-code, which allows developers to express authorization policies with a no-code drag-and-drop policy builder or through a low-code declarative language.
