The National Security Agency | Open Source Software & The Ghidra decompiler project
While at OSCON, my cellphone battery died. Luckily, there was a cell phone charging station in the National Security Agency’s booth. While I was waiting for my battery to charge, I interviewed Jacob & Emily from the agency’s community team, as well as a software developer from the open source decompiler project Ghidra.
While most of what the NSA does is top secret, they actually have 40 open source projects and an active community team and public education programs. We talked about how they support open source at the NSA, cybersecurity, career paths in technology, learning new skills, and our tech origin stories.
