I'm Attending!November 23, 2017November 24, 2017BSides Wellington 2017UTCIn true Security B-Sides (BSides) form, BSides Wellington is a community security conference. What better way to pay tribute to that community than inviting consultants, hackers, developers, operations, engineers, hobbyists, academics, students, and public-sector type folks to a conference hall to share their ideas, experiences and knowledge?
This is BSides Wellington inaugural year; the tickets will be cheap, the time of year/week is familiar, come submit a talk or workshop and make the line up look un-BEE-lievable.*
_*C’mon, you can’t avoid bee puns when your city icon is the Beehive and your conference is BSides._
### Location & Logistics
BSides Wellington will be held at Shed 6 on Queens Wharf. It is in the middle of town, near the train station, and close to a whole heap of cafes, pubs, and hotels.
The Shed 6 hall will be broken into multiple talk/workshop areas. The main track will be good for those that want to present a larger audience talk, and the smaller tracks will be good for a smaller audience talk or a hands-on workshop.
### Speaker Costs
BSides Wellington is a not-for-profit, community event and we are aiming for <$50 tickets for employed folks, and <$25 for students and unemployed. In order to keep those tickets low, we are not covering speaker costs (flights, accommodation, etc). Just think of all the snacks and refreshments and fun times that will be had though!
We have a diversity fund available to help women, LGBTQI, people of colour, younger, older, financially less resourced and other groups who are underrepresented in the security and wider tech industry present at BSides Wellington. In all honesty, if you are keen to submit and you need help getting to BSides Wellington, and don't represent one of these groups, submit anyway and let us know you need assistance.
(Also, ignore the t-shirt size on the submission form, we can't remove it!)Wellington, NZ
I'm Attending!March 27, 2018March 29, 2018DevConf 2018UTC# Introduction
DevConf is a community driven, developer focused, one-day conference hosted annually in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa. The aim of the conference is to provide software developers a buffet of tools, practices and principles applicable to tackling current and future challenges in the South African software development environment. It's an event where attendees can learn, network and be inspired regardless of their specific technology stack and programming language of choice.
DevConf serves to inspire software developers. A range of topics applicable to software development will be presented. From keeping up to date with the latest technologies and trends to tackling the challenges of working in large enterprise systems – it's a buffet of experiences, ideas and pragmatic advice as well as an opportunity to connect with peers across the industry.
# Types of talks
We have two types of talks and both types are presentation style on stage in front of an audience. These talks are not suited for audience participation.
* Full slot: This is a 45 min slot. Do demos, play audio, do anything! Time is for everything; including Q&A.
* Lightning talk: This is a 15min slot. It is a slide only presentation (slides must be provided a week before the event). These are recommended for first time speakers.
Sales pitches are not welcome.
DevConf 2018 will take place for the third year in Johannesburg on the 27th March 2018 and, for the first time, Cape Town on the 29th March 2018.
Cape Town is a smaller event, and as such not all speakers from the Johannesburg event will be offered a slot in Cape Town.
Lightning talks will be unique per event.
All selected speakers to DevConf include a pass for the event and invite to the speakers only dinner.
Travel and accommodation can also be included full slot presenters. This includes international speakers.
## International Speakers
Yes, we can cover travel and accommodation for you too! South Africa
