Year after year we hear stories about people who annually almost attend t2. The intention is always there, but when the time comes to register for the event, they find themselves in the middle of a floppy disk inventory or some other significant crisis at (work|home|garden).
The question for many of these people then remains – was it any good, should I attend next year? The advisory board is certainly too biased to answer this question; we are like winemakers who think each year qualifies as a vintage. The regulars and other long-time conference goers gladly reminisce past events, while wearing some obscure and highly collectible t-shirt from ’04. In our view, a first time speaker’s opinion is probably a good objective yardstick.
Patrick Wardle, flying half-way across the globe to deliver two talks in the cold and snowy Helsinki, was kind enough to share his experiences in this Synack lab’s blog post. For other t2 coverage, see #t2infosec on Twitter
