BSidesCharm 2017
This year promised to be the biggest yet, with over 1000 people attending, and it didn't disappoint. Numerous talk tracks, training tracks, and workshops.  We also hosted our new Hiring Village (Saturday only), where attendees talked to companies looking to hire as well as talking to volunteers on ways to enhance resumes or even just get general career guidance. 

Most talks were recorded and can be viewed from the Schedule page.

Here is our 2017 event program

BSidesCharm 2017 is tomorrow!!

posted Apr 28, 2017, 11:57 AM by Jeff Brocious

Just a few reminders for this weekend:
  • We will NOT have any tickets available at the door.  We just don't have any more badges.
  • We need to move a lot of people through registration in a short period of time.  Please help us by bringing your scanable ticket with you.
  • All training sessions are sold out.  If you have a seat in one of the classes, please be in that seat 10 minutes before class starts.  If there are any empty seats at that time, we will offer them to those waiting patiently on-site.

We are trying something new this year.  On Saturday and Sunday afternoon, If you would like a 2015 or 2016 BSidesCharm t-shirt (with that year's badge and lanyard), we will have some available for a donation (cash only) to one of our charities.  And while they last, we will also have some of the leftover 2016 uber badges (the little blinky ones from last year).  More details will be available at the registration table - Saturday afternoon.  We may even have some extra 2017 shirts available too!

Even if you don't want a shirt, feel free to make a cash donation to any of our charities.

We hope everyone has a great time!  See you tomorrow!

We will have 900+ people to get through the registration lines over a relatively short period of time.  Please help us make things move as fast as possible by having your badge ticket and training ticket with you.  If you don't have your ticket(s), you may be asked to step aside and wait until the lines go down so we can manually verify. 

We will NOT have any any badges available for walk-ins at the con.

We do not have a wait list

posted Feb 28, 2017, 2:28 PM by Jeff Brocious

All of our tickets were sold.  We do not have a wait list, because there are no tickets left.  Our best advice is to ask around to see if anyone has a ticket they can no longer use.
