In real life, technical superiority is one thing and an ability to present your work is another.
So, without further ado – best write-ups for t2’14 Challenge:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
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
To all those who contributed to the conference either as an attendee or as a speaker: Thank You!
If you have any questions/comments/feedback please let us know – we would love to make the con even better.
This time it proved pretty difficult to pick the second winner as the submissions were of very high quality. After careful consideration we chose Vladimir Gneushev from Russia. His write-up will be published after the conference so you’ll have a change to evaluate his submission yourself.
Congratulations to both winners! We would also like to thank each one of you who participated – especially those who made it to top 20 – you guys rock! Last but not least. if you have an interesting idea for t2’15 Challenge, please let us know – authors get a free admission to the conference among other perks ;)
