Justine makes the Internet smarter so that it can protect you from malicious traffic, download your pages faster, and keep your information private when you’re sending it from one place to another. Justine built a system called APLOMB that checks every message you receive for evil attacks, and sometimes does things to speed up your downloads too! We are thankful Justine is here to help protect us from evil. Her advice to her fellow @wogrammer: “Don’t get intimidated, you don’t need to know everything about programming to solve a problem. You just need to know little bits to solve the problem you actually have — and you can learn those as you go.”
