Community Docs and NetBeans Logos

Day 3- Community Docs, Logos and Decathlon

It’s a Bean, It’s a Cube … It’s the NetBeans Logo!

Did you know that the NetBeans logo was almost a bean? See the first hand-drawn drafts of the NetBeans logo, and how it evolved over time to become the cube we all know and love.

The Many Faces of the NetBeans UI

The NetBeans user interface changed a lot over time. Have a look at our collection of historic screenshots — do you remember?

NetBeans Community Docs

The NetBeans Community Docs program is a program in which community members write and submit documentation for use by the community. Since its beginning in March 2007, the Community Docs program has developed into a dependable source of quality NetBeans documentation.

Submitted documentation includes tutorials, screencasts, FAQs, book chapters, and Tips & Tricks. Today more than 90 community members participate regularly in the program, which has resulted in more than 220 documents. The Community Docs program is yet another way in which NetBeans Community members can contribute to the success of NetBeans IDE.
