Def Con, BSides, Derby, Infosec, Cackalacky. So many conferences, but what can you actually do and how do you get the most out of your experience there?

This month we will focus on conferences, mostly Def Con and BSidesLV conference preparations, but we’ll also discuss BSides RDU, InfoSeCon, and Cackalacky Con. All the logistics and activities available can be overwhelming and leaving you with FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). We’ll discuss how to make it easier on yourself and plan ahead to get the most out of the conference.

We will start with the usual announcements and a brief overview of conferences. Then a round table discussion, where you are welcome to, but not required to speak. Come with questions or advice for others. We’ll move into open discussion if we run out of conference topics.

4:00 – 6:00 Conference Discussion
6:00 – 8:00 Open discussion at a nearby bar

Where:  150 Fayetteville St #1400, Raleigh, NC 27601



CackalackyCon will take place May 31 – June 2, 2019 at The Sheraton Chapel Hill.

Tickets are available online now for $40, you can also buy a ticket for a student.

Tickets will also be available at the door for $50.  Show your student ID at the door for a student ticket while supplies last.

Many DC919 members will be in attendance supporting the community by volunteering for villages, giving presentations, showing off side projects, or simply attending.  Be sure to let the group or Bace16 know if there’s anything you want to do or get help with for the con.
