It is 2 November, 2020 today. Late at night I was having a conversation with Uday and Siddesh. A con call. I happened to ask Uday where would he go if he had to go right now. He was prompt and it didn’t take time for him to think. He said Kedarkantha, and it was that then. The plan was to depart the next day and I had no tickets booked.
Testbuzz Site Contact for code/docs/Jira/BMC anything So it started back in August when Siddesh, me and Rushikesh were working on a project Asset Suraksha which Rushikesh had somehow managed to bag because of some relative of his. Siddesh had this thought of making a website where students can enroll and take tests. A thought he had while in conversation with his coaching class lecturer. While we faced a lot of problems making the asset suraksha website right, learning database, backend and more such stuff siddesh was also brain storming on that.
I used to believe that putting out vulnerabilities was the most stupid thing someone would do. When you try to hide but not actually restrict access or disable an exposed port over the network, you will be targetted and the losses will be huge. But only when people and you collaboratively work on those flaws, you come up with a patch. A solution. This solution intends to minimize the losses further and you keep working on this security part concurrently with the business impact you wanted to ever create.
It was 2nd April 2019 and nobody yet had agreed to come with me for stargazing. There were high chances of the plan getting scraped off. Though also was planning to go alone but Maitrey and Siddesh had scared me with their stories already. After a lot of calls and convincing, Uday and Siddesh finally agreed. The whole night I couldn’t sleep, damn excited! Tracey joined us without any hesitation and ready we were.
