Calendar of Events
DEF CON is a unique experience for each con-goer. If you google around you’ll find dozens of write-ups that will give you an idea of what people have experienced at DEF CON. Trust write-ups more than media articles about the con. Some people play capture the flag 24×7, while many people never touch a computer at DEF CON. Some people see every speech they can, while others miss all speeches. Other activities include contests, movie marathons, scavenger hunts, sleep deprivation, lock picking, warez trading, drunken parties, spot the fed contest, the official music events. Because DEF CON is what the attendees make of it, there are more events than even we are aware of. Half the fun is learning what happened at DEF CON after the fact!
If you have been to BSidesLV before…. you know what you are in for *or do you?* For all of you that have not been to BSidesLV, well, be prepared. You will be attending an event of epic caliber. We transform a cozy Mansion into one of the biggest FREE security conference/meetups in the world. You will not be encouraged to sit still, you will not be in awkward silence, you will see speakers light up with delight as you ask questions DURING their talks. This is a community thrown event. 4 us by us. We invite you into the “deep end” of the pool and promise that no judgments will be made…. just time to relax, have fun, and oh yeah… LEARN/SHARE. Every member works day and night to make it THE EVENT to be at, *especially* if you can’t afford Blackhat, and plan to be in town for Defcon. Or… if you are just gonna come out to LV to experience the BSides magic. We need sponsors, wranglers, handlers, speakers, nuts, looneys, the sane, and those of you that are somewhere in-between to all throw in a hand. Because this year…. we are going BIG.
