BSides Buffalo is a first-time grassroots technology conference supporting the Western New York community. It will be a one day event, on Saturday, June 4, 2022, in the recently-renovated Science Hall on the campus of Canisius College in Buffalo, NY.
Our goal is simple – to bring together technical students, hobbyists, and practitioners from across the area for a day of learning, networking, and professional development. This event will be an open and welcoming space for everyone from experienced CISOs and engineers with years of experience to new students and graduates looking to meet companies and leaders in the local information security community.
This will be the art and design side of the BSides Buffalo Conference. We are seeking speakers who work with free and open source software for creative projects to share their work and techniques with attendees. All creative endeavors have a hacking aspect to using tools and ideas in unconventional ways. We want to learn how you do it.
Possible topics: - Adobe, AutoDesk alternatives and how to learn/use them - free and open source CAD - Linux for creatives - Open source music production - Generative art - Coding for non-coders - Hardware hacking for creatives - Media archeology - Open source exhibition, performance systems and techniques - Transitioning from walled gardens to free and open source
