Story from NetBeans Day in Russia



I have a rather weird experience from NetBeans day in Russia I'd like to share. I visited the Tech Days and NetBeans day and had two presentations at NetBeans day on Friday. Thanks for everyone for coming even though NetBeans day was after tech days - we got some good questions during our presentations.

After NetBeans day one of the attendees who didn't speak any English asked for the last T-shirt which was laying at the podium, so I gave it to him. He also asked for my badge I had on my neck, I didn't understand why he wanted it, but I gave it to him, because it was the end of the day, so I didn't need it anymore. Then I figured out he wanted to break into the area in front of the speaker room to steal cookies! So I asked him to give me the badge back before he got there. Then he got another badge from somebody else and tried to persuade the security guard that he's a speaker. Unfortunately he got a normal attendee badge, and the security guard was quite angry - the weird guy tried to break in several times. It seems that we had really good cookies at NetBeans day - according to the team it was the most expensive cookie package they could choose.

I took a photo of the guy (just joking) :)
Comments:

lol That's funny.
1) The guy was really hungry, and no vending machine around.
2) (1)+ he's broke.
3) The cookies must be really good, was it? =)

LOL.
Did you bring a full package of those cookies back to Prague?

Sounds like you should give away cookies with the netbean cd's :-)

I don't understand. Couldn't you just have checked his "disable receive cookies" checkbox? -Bob

There are a few cookies in Netbeans itself.

Anybody wants them? ;)

Breaking News

A wannabe hacker tries his hands at "cookie theft"... but fails miserably. According to the reports, he was apparently a Skript Kidi33, trying his hands at dangerous tools like "NetBeans T-Shirt" and "Speaker's Badge".

However, the mystery that's in the air is how was he caught! Initial researches say that it's probably because the cookies were developed and placed, near a NetBeans IDE( read room).
The question that's boggling the researchers is, "Can an application developed NEAR NetBeans have such amazing security features?" If yes, then how secure would the applications developed in NetBeans be!

I don't know, but I am surely gonna check out.
Hopefully, will check in next time with NetBeans' SVN. :)
