One of the things that makes Black Hat so friggin’ awesome is the quality of the speakers and their presentations. Bleeding-edge material, theoretical and applicable, seen no where else covering everything including technology, business, legal, social and political arenas. Unfortunately this also forces you to make tough choices about what talks to see. No matter which one you choose, you are bound to miss something cool taking place in another room. The largest time block for me though is the undocumented hallway track. Taking the time to meet people I know and those I don’t to learn new things and exchange ideas is what it is all about! Fortunately, conference videos are made available so nothing is really missed. My picks for Black Hat that I’m going to do my best to see as many as possible. What are you wanting to see?
