Possible Topics

  • It is during SxSW Interactive, privacy would be a good topic, no?
  • Writing robust code. Rugged, even
  • Practical Application Security
  • Whatever cool hackery you are up to
  • Achieving security while maintaining compliance 
  • Exploitation and education, better than peanut butter and chocolate 

 

Where: The Walton-Joseph Building, 706-708 6th Street.  (and beyond)

That's right, we will be right on 6th St, near everything (or at least near I-35, the transit center, the convention center, bars, restaurants, and much more).

This historic building was built C. 1884, and has served as a retail store, boarding house, bar, church, shoeshine parlor, restaurant- and now a BSides Venue.
