1 Google / OSV-Scanner
Use OSV-Scanner to find existing vulnerabilities affecting your project’s dependencies.
OSV-Scanner provides an officially supported frontend to the OSV database that connects a project’s list of dependencies with the vulnerabilities that affect them. Since the OSV.dev database is open source and distributed, it has several benefits in comparison with closed source advisory databases and scanners.

2 18F / development-guide
A set of guidelines and best practices for an awesome software engineering team.
Technology Transformation Services (TTS) Engineering Practices.
TTS offices and programs — including 18F, Centers of Excellence (CoE), Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF), and Solutions — promote team best practices across specialty areas through guilds. These guilds support their members in whatever way deemed most appropriate by those members themselves.
This repo is where the TTS Engineering Practices Guild keeps its guide to best practices and resources for software development. Documentation is written using Markdown syntax and published as HTML using the Jekyll static site generator.
