Different • ShmooCon is an annual East coast hacker convention hell-bent on offering three days of an interesting atmosphere for demonstrating technology exploitation, inventive software & hardware solutions, and open discussions of critical infosec issues. The first day is a single track of speed talks, One Track Mind. The next two days, there are three tracks: Break It!, Build It!, and Bring It On!.
Affordable • ShmooCon is about high-quality without the high price. Take advantage of scaled pre-registration discounts, and ShmooCon can be dirt cheap. Space is limited! ShmooCon has sold out for the last two years, so unless taking a chance on an eBay auction to get your ticket sounds like fun, register early!
Accessible • Well, except for our West coast friends, sorry guys. ShmooCon is in Washington, D.C., at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, just a few steps from the D.C. Metro. Fly into DCA, IAD, or BWI, or take a train to Union Station, and you are just a quick cab ride away from the con.
Entertaining • Brain melting from all the cool tech you are learning? Check out some of the contests running at ShmooCon, including the Hacker Arcade and Hack/Or/Halo. In years past, we have also thrown massive parties at a local area hot-spot, so expect that to happen again too!
