once again had the greatest of pleasure to assist (in a minor way) with #44CON this year as the minor annoyance ambling around with camera’s. In the two & a bit days I managed to take 32Gb of pictures (just over 2000).
It’s a brilliant conference, of the two events in the UK that I consider unmissable #44CON is by far the best for content and catching up with friends and the regular con attendees plus great speakers; Bsides London will always be the best ‘free’ community event and in the commercial realm #44CON is such a great training / learning & socialising gig it cannot / should not be missed.
I managed to meet a few more peeps that I know only from IRC / Twitter / Internetz and it’s always fantastic to actually catch up in real life, #44CON enables those conversations and meetings and the new venue definitely helped to facilitate the entire event.
Awesome presentations and demonstrations were in abundant supply as was the never tiring core team & crew of #44CON who deserve nothing but admiration and praise for making the event such a success. At the end of Friday there was a real buzz and sadness as it ended, that was coupled with the relief that it all passed smoothly and without noticeable flail; it’s a credit to the effort behind the scenes and the generous support of the sponsors and everyone who attended that makes it such a great highlight of the UK Information Security calender.
I’ve picked through the mass of pictures and pulled out a hundred or so to give a taster of the con, please feel free to share any pictures or re-use them for any non-commercial means (I appreciate credit for them and welcome any feedback or requests for full resolution raw copies).
I hope everyone who attended enjoyed #44CON as much as I did and I’m already looking forward to next years event(s) with great anticipation, they really are the pinnacle of the cream of InfoSec in the UK and I’m proud to play a small part in something so awesome and that improves time after time.
Till next time!
