I'm heading to DerbyCon this weekend. What is DerbyCon you ask? Here is the description from the website:
DerbyCon isn't just another security conference. We've taken the best elements from all of the conferences we've ever been to and put them into one. DerbyCon is a place you can call home, where you can meet each other, party, and learn. Our goal is to create a fun environment where the security community can come together to share ideas and concepts.
I'm hoping its going to be a lot less crowded than DefCon. I talked to some people that went this year and they said it was mobbed. I'm hoping for a decent crowd and some good conversation with people. The talks look really interesting and fun. If anyone that reads this is going and wants to meet me (for some odd reason) I might be up for it. Just e-mail webmaster at pantz dot org. I'll see what is going on with my group and what our plans are. We might be able to meet. On to KY!
