Welcome to BSidesSLC
BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation.
Ok, so a recent announcement shared by the mother ship is making it a bit easier for us. No, we won't have levels of donation possible. We'll have one price. You can also purchase a seat/badge for someone else. On the day of the event, we'll have a badge waiting for them (just no t-shirt).
What will you get for registering as a participant? A beautiful badge, a fantastic BSidesSLC t-shirt, and a challenge coin. No kidding? No kidding.
So we're in the Salt Palace this year, and it's awesome. Something not so awesome? We have to use their catering if we get any food. We can't bring in any outside food. And it's way too expensive for us to spend any money on it for everyone. If we fed everyone, it would completely DOUBLE our entire budget. So, we'll all take advantage of the location, and go grab something to eat nearby. We'll adjust the lunch and dinner break(s) accordingly.
What else is different? We're going to do a Call For Workshops! At Saintcon recently, the feedback all around the con and on the surveys was that the workshops were some of the attendee's favorite things. They loved being able to sit down with a VM already installed and just get to work learning some new tool or technique. Well, we had heard that you didn't want BSides to happen on a Saturday, so we moved. We now hear people want workshops, so we'll add them. If you have a workshop, we want to hear from you.
