What is DEF CON?


It has become a cultural event all hackers must attend at least once in their lives. This, combined with Black Hat and now BSidesLV, is now the one event each year I don't miss. See below for more descriptions from their FAQs:

Venue (New Location Alert!)

Rio Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
3700 West Flamingo Road

Re: DEF CON 19

They were at the Rio before?

I have been twice to the Riviera (Defcon 17 and 18) but never to the Rio. When were they there? Is it bigger than the Riviera?

Re: DEF CON 19

No problems g00d_4sh!

I agree with you the Riviera is somehow below average. And the food is really crapy around this casino...

Let's hope the Rio is better!

Re: DEF CON 19

Amen.  I didn't stay at the Riv though, my worst stay in Vegas was the NOT-SO Imperial Palace... that wont' happen again.  Paris last year wasn't bad, but I'm hoping to snag gov rate at the Bell this year.

I'll be in Vegas all week doing as much as I can. You're more likely to find me at one of the parties.  :o

Re: DEF CON 19

I was unexpectedly able to make an "emergency" change in my schedule and book a trip. I'd love to meet any other EHer's who are able to make it out. I had to miss out the last couple of years because of various circumstances, so I was truly glad that "the third time is a charm" held true.

(I will be with DC225 - check out the presentation on Friday night)
