Ah Devoxx. This year it was bigger than ever. Taking over the main hall for the exhibitors and using the old space for talks was inspired. Loved it.
IBM hosted another Mad Scientist zone which, in my opinion, was by far the best stand there. We had a dozen or so IBMers presenting their wares. Some were full on commercial (but still totally awesome ) while others were completely wacky and existed simply ‘because’.
I brought my autonomous PiShark (Thats an Air Swimmer run by a raspberry pi w) but had to have it tethered and strapped down for health and safety reasons. Apparently it was classed as an AirShip!
As well as being a Mad Scientist I also got to talk about Java. Or in this case Java Vulnerabilities. The video for the talk is here while the deck is here This talk is a follow-on to my talks about Cybercrime. Although I wont ever detail an actual vulnerability this talk has examples of the sort of code that ends up being exploited.
