We're happy to announce that BSides Odessa Security Conference will NOT be happening.
Instead, we've prepared for you BSides Odessa HACKER PARTY 2017! The talks will be awesome, but if you're looking at them to decide whether to go or not, then you've missed the point! This party is about FUN and SO MUCH more than just the talks :)
If there ever was a time to get your shit together and travel to Odessa, it's now!
As some may remember, last year after the conference part of Bsides Odessa, the main event took place - an all-night long after party! We rented a 4-floor house with barbecue, billiards, sauna, two DJs and lots of booze to provide the relaxed environment where real quality time and communication happens.
Well, forget that lame event :) We've learned since then, and this year OWASP Odessa and SoftSeq have prepared something really special for the cyber-security community.
The Party will run for 24 hours non-stop - between noon of Saturday, July 1st and noon of Sunday, July 2nd.
BSides Odessa 2017 will be held at a bitchin' 1200 (!) square meter mansion, with radio-shielded underground cinema serving as a conference hall! (1.7 meters thick steel-reinforced concrete walls)
There's a sauna and the Black Sea is only 500 meters away, 10 minutes of relaxed walking, so grab your swimsuits - you'll have plenty of time to use them the next day, on Sunday.
It's expected to host no more than 50 attendees, making it small, warm and cosy for you introverts out there.
BSides Odessa strives to be an informal, community event where attendees may exchange and broaden their knowledge, as well as make some friends based on a common interest - computer security.
Entrance is free, conditional on your registration CTF progress. And it's easy - last year, 44 out of 50 attendees paid nothing. Registration process is anonymous and provides access to the event's address, as well as to the CTF.
As always, in an attempt to neutralize the gender imbalance in cyber-security field, entrance for girls is free and unobstructed. For the event's address, please write us at [email protected]
