Event details


An eclectic gathering of InfoSec people to hear awesome talks and have outrageously fun discussions!  Our mission is to provide an inclusive, ecletic, some say quirky open environment for sharing and collaborative discourse on topics that most interest you.

Repeating again this year - AppSec Guerrilla Camp (click for details)

What is AppSec Guerrilla Camp? A form of irregular training that gives you concentrated hands-on training in a highly mobile format.


Repeating again this year - Fire Marshall Talks (Thursday evening)

Yes, we renamed the talks to include the WONDERFUL experience we had with the Austin Fire Marshall unsuccessfully raining on our Con in 2011. - So here is to you Mr. Fire Marshall... talks named in your 'by the book' honor!
