In real life, technical superiority is one thing and an ability to present your work is another.
So, without further ado – best write-up for t2’16 Challenge:
Yeah, we know – a nerdy reference to a great book.
If you’ve ever been to t2, you know that the atmosphere and networking is everything. In order to keep it that way, we have always limited the amount of attendees to 99.
Usually all the seats are sold out about one month before the event takes place and this year is not an exception. That being said, we just got three cancellations, so we have three seats left.
If you were thinking of coming but missed the party, now is your chance.
Oh, and we will soon announce our surprise speaker :)
If you’ve ever been to t2, you know that the atmosphere and networking is everything. In order to keep it that way, we have to limit the amount of attendees, meaning there is a total of 99 seats available, including speakers and organizers.
That being said, we have passed the 90% mark. If you want to make sure you’ll actually have a seat, we advice you to register right now.
Having recently returned from the warmer parts of EMEA, where nights are warm and days even warmer, the importance of having friends and making new ones seems somehow topical. Global and regional geopolitics get a new meaning, when you can enjoy pleasant discussions with people having a local insight. The often-repeated-cliché of travel widening your horizons certainly holds true, but only if you get away from hotel and airport lounges to spend enough time in one place to really soak in the surroundings.
Historically, Helsinki has been the host city for all kinds of talks, and in many ways, t2 follows those traditions. We cater to an all-encompassing audience, where everybody is welcome regardless of a funny hat they might wear. One person’s ethical choice is another’s livelihood, and yesterday’s break-up/bankruptcy/allsafe is today’s comeback tour/hottest startup/evilcorp.
Just like a good foothold inside a Jenkins server gives you the keys to the kingdom, allocating an annual training budget for t2 is a good investment, if you prefer meeting fantastic people, exchanging intel^H^H^H^H^Hknowledge, and learning from world class research. This year there are also other interesting opportunities around t2 in Helsinki – a sauna day opening the doors of private homes for sauna visits and a whole event dedicated just to salty liquorice.
What more could you ask from an infosec conference?
ps. Don’t forget to include lobby bar expenses in your training cost estimates!
