Security BSides is the first grass roots, DIY, open security conference in the world! Security BSides is a great combination of two event styles: structured anchor events and grass-roots geocentric events.
BesidesSeattle19 was rescheduled to February 23, 2019, due to Seattle snowstorms. It was worth the wait. The event was well organized, offered a variety of presentations from Cloud Security to Cryptography. A great lunch catered by Blue Water Tacos and the event was held at the Microsoft Common, in Redmond, Washington.
I attended seven presentations from reverse engineering to breaking digital signatures; still processing the variety of topics swirling inside my brain. Each presentation expanded my knowledge base and I was impressed by each speakers interpretation of the topics they presented and each held a question and answer segment as part of their presentation.
At the end of the day I felt energized as I walked out of he conference. Looking forward to BsidesSeattle20.
