I am currently on my 9th day in Vegas for BlackHat and DefCon, and just thought I would check-in.
This was my first BlackHat, and given the cost, unless work is paying, most probably my last. I took two training classes - Windows Enterprise Incident Response and Absolute SCADA, Red Team Edition. Both classes had pretty good content, but bu the end of the four days I was exhausted. The classes were long and the rooms were freezing. It also doesn't help that I am an idiot and barely understood the big words. BlackHat ended with briefings and the Business Hall. They charge and extra $2000 or so for the briefings (which is bullshit) so i didn't attend any of those, and the vendor hall was just a vendor hall. I did get a yo-yo so there's that.
This is my second DefCon, and what can I say? Based on my vast previous existence of one, it's DefCon, lots of lines and Goons screaming, I didn't get any training but i have visited a few villages. The ICS village seems to have a lot more interest this year, Blue Team Village seems to be getting off to a good start and I will be visiting the Vintage Tech Village today.
All in All it's a pretty good time.
Next week will be 25% of the planned 52 week run. I'll let you guys decide, stop or keep going?
