BSidesSF is planning several contests, events and fundraisers in conjunction with our sponsors.  The goal is to raise money for good organizations and to get you lots of free shwag!


  • BSides After Party:
    • Date/Time: Tuesday, March 2nd // 7pm-10pm+
    • Location: Secret speakeasy (location announced on the 2nd)
    • DJ/MC: Rachel Perkins (DJ Pie Bob) // DualCore @DualCoreMusic (Nerdcore)
    • Food/Drink: @cremebruleecart & @MagicCurryKart & drinks provided
    • Password: (should be easy to figure out from the hint below)

  • Find Frank Chu!  If you've spent much time wandering around downtown San Francsico, you've likely seen Frank Chu and some incarnation of his infamous sign.  Well, Frank's sign will be getting a slight make over and we want you to document it.  This is your mission B-Siders: Find Frank Chu and have your picture taken with him (or if you are feeling shy, we will accept pictures of him alone).  Don't forget to check out both sides of the sign!  Post your pictures to Flickr and/or Twitter and tag it #BSidesSF #FrankChu.  Everyone who submits a photo will get their named dropped into the drawing for the new Apple iPad.  This is @chipmonkey's contest and she is relinquishing her claim to the iPad so it can be raffled off to the Find Frank Chu entrants.  Frank will be out and about March 1-3.  We will draw a winner after Dino's talk on March 3rd.


  • BigFix 2010 IT Dino Awards Video Contest

    • Criteria: The contest invites enterprise IT professionals to charge up their “Flip,” smart phone, and digital video cameras to capture the frustration and costs of working with information technology dinosaurs in modern distributed endpoint computing environments.
    • Prize: Prizes include a $1,000 first prize, three $500 runner-up awards, and BigFix Dino Hunter T-Shirts for qualified contestants.
  • Pimp-My-Podcast: Beyond the Perimeter will be interviewing BSides participants at the event.
  • TOOOL Meet-up
    • Date/Time: Wedneday, March 3rd @ 14:00 - 17:00
    • Location: pariSoma (back conference room area)
    • Details:  Have you ever picked a lock?  Would you like to learn?  The Open Organization of Lockpickers will be holding their first public meeting in the northern California area and all who wish to learn about physical security and lockpicking are welcome to attend.

      The mission of TOOOL is to advance the general public knowledge about locks and lockpicking.  By examining locks, safes, and other hardware we feel it is possible strip away the mystery with which so many of these products are imbued.  After all, the more that people know, the better consumers they can be in the marketplace... making decisions based on sound fact and research as opposed to fear, conjecture, and hype.




  • Let BigFix chauffeur you in style (#BSidesBigFixBus) to and from Moscone Center, Security BSides SF, and your hotel. Beverages, snacks, and great SWAG provided on board! Stops include: Moscone Center, Parc 55 Hotel, Hilton San Francisco, Westin St. Francis, and #BSidesSF (pariSoma).
  • Cabs are accessible and cost about $5-7 between Moscone and pariSoma.  It's a flat rate for all in the cab, but please do not try to create a clown car.
  • Public transit provides easy access between Moscone Center and BSidesSF.  The bus lines #12, #14, #47 will take you there as will the MUNI "M" line.





The BSidesSF Call for Presentations (CFP) is closed.  Review the talk submissions on BSidesSanFranciscoTalks and vote your favorite.


If you wish to participate please volunteer for a goon slot at BSidesSanFranciscoGoons. You can only add your name to this page if one of the organizers can vouch for you.  Those who do volunteer their time will have their choice of special free gifts.
