    1. I would like to make an appeal to core developers: all design decisions involving involuntary session creation MUST be made with a great caution. In case of a high-load project, avoiding to create a session for non-authenticated users is a vital strategy with a critical influence on application performance. It doesn't really make a big difference, whether you use a database backend, or Redis, or whatever else; eventually, your load would be high enough, and scaling further would not help anymore, so that either network access to the session backend or its “INSERT” performance would become a bottleneck. In my case, it's an application with 20-25 ms response time under a 20000-30000 RPM load. Having to create a session for an each session-less request would be critical enough to decide not to upgrade Django, or to fork and rewrite the corresponding components.

    1. Engaging Donors of Color in Arts Philanthropy

      Attended

      A. This forum was very interesting and well organized. Each speaker discussed what changes they want to make or took part in, what is their idea of making a difference and what steps we should take to solve these issues. B. The leadership qualities definitely included being mindful of others, very pragmatic discussion and one that was open to the audience. C. The panel was based both on research and experience and I believe that being a leader in the arts field means using both to being more inclusive and understanding the language we use. D. This forum was definitely my favorite and I found it very valuable. The speakers gave some beneficial advice on community building, commitment to inclusion, and to understanding how the board, staff and programming can impact the mission of an arts org.

    1. Arts and Climate Change Forum

      Attended

      A. The Arts and Climate Change Forum discussed ways in which artists and arts organizations can "respond, react and engage through art" to save the planet. The leadership practices included mostly allowing the audience to share their ideas of innovative ways to be more eco-friendly. B. The three panelists shared how they are dealing with the issue. They were definitely confident in their practice, however I found that certain members of the audience had a better vision and more ideas about dealing with the climate change issue. C. I really enjoyed Jody Sperling's comment. She stated that it is important to remember about the content - building constant awareness, transformative thought, cultivating empathy, modeling interconnectedness and that we, not "me" create the community we live in. I believe this is something any arts admin could use in their future work.<br> D. I find that it was interesting to hear different ideas from arts organizations and the audience members but I did not find the forum too valuable. Going to this panel, I was hoping to get more valuable advice from the panelists and their realistic vision of what we can do, but instead I walked out being a bit disappointed.

    1. Cookie存储在浏览器中,对客户端是可见的,客户端的一些程序可能会窥探、复制以至修正Cookie中的内容。而Session存储在服务器上,对客户端是透明的,不存在敏感信息泄露的风险。

      cookie 是整个会话对象都放在客户端,很容易看到(base64 只是压缩,并不是加密)。 session 是整个会话对象都放在服务端,只有一个 session id 副本放在客户端的 cookie 里,所以就算有人偷到了 session id 冒充,也看不到会话信息。

    1. Chapter 1, The Art of Community We begin the book with a bird’s-eye view of how communities function at a social science level. We cover the underlying nuts and bolts of how people form communities, what keeps them involved, and the basis and opportunities behind these interactions. Chapter 2, Planning Your Community Next we carve out and document a blueprint and strategy for your community and its future growth. Part of this strategy includes the target objectives and goals and how the community can be structured to achieve them. PREFACE xix Chapter 3, Communicating Clearly At the heart of community is communication, and great communicators can have a tremendously positive impact. Here we lay down the communications backbone and the best practices associated with using it
