I just wanted to write a quick blog post to say what a great time I had at SecurityBSides London yesterday. Everyone involved in making the conference happen did a great job and committed a lot of their personal time to it and it showed! I’m terrible at remembering names so I won’t name people because I don’t want to leave anyone out.
I was happy that I got to meet a lot of people who I had only previously known via Skype, Twitter or email – it is always good to put a face to the avatar or username! Some of the $whoami introductions from people I met made me smile, Marc Wickenden was the one that stood out the most for me – something like “I’m the one who talks about F1 with you”! I lost my smile quickly when he reminded me about how bad my favourite team is doing so far this season!
I left the conference very happy knowing our community can produce something like this when we really put our minds to it. I also leave a bit sad, no matter how hard I try I never get to speak to everyone one I want to or make time for everyone who wants to speak with me.
I was very happy with how the two talks I was giving went and from the feedback I’ve received so far it seems like attendees enjoyed them which is always important to me. I always enjoy answering questions about the talks and I had to say thank you to one attendee who suggested a brilliant feature to add to Agnitio, watch this space!
I’ve put both of my talks online and you can view them in our new media section:
I would also like to thank everyone who follows the Security Ninja twitter account, after SecurityBSides London we flew past the 4,000 followers mark!
