BSides or Be Square: San Francisco and Austin

Hey there conference attendees - it's time to find your groove and hop on the bandwagon for Security BSides. We have two events coming up VERY SOON - now's the time to act! Security BSides events are free to attendees, relying exclusively on the generosity of volunteers and sponsors.

Speaking of sponsors, we still need some, especially for BSides Austin! Wondering about the value proposition? Check out the Security BSides page on Sponsoring. Please let me know if you have questions or interest in helping out!

BSides San Francisco
Up first is BSides San Francisco, being held at the same time as the annual RSA Conference. You must pre-register for this event as space is limited. Pertinent information is:

When: Tuesday/Wednesday, March 2-3, 2010 @ 10am - 5pm
Where: pariSoma, 1436 Howard St. (at 10th), San Francisco, CA 94113

Speaking of #BSidesSF, now is the time to vote for talks! You can see a complete list of proposed talks here:

To vote for the talk of your choice, you need to hit Twitter and post a message like the following (this one would be for my talk):

I vote for "I Think I'm Gonna Hurl" by @falconsview #BSidesSF http://bit.ly/BSidesSFtalks

BSides Austin
This event is being held at the same time as another major conference that we can't name because of their super-tight brand management. Our thought was that it's about time we start getting security people into conversations that involve developers, and what better place to do it than around the same time as a major developer conference? At the same time, we've heard from several colleagues in Texas that getting out of the state for conferences in the current economy can be a challenge. So, to that end, we give you BSides Austin!

When: Saturday, March 13, 2010
Where: Norris Conference Centers, Austin, Texas

Please feel free to ping me for more information. If you're not familiar with the major event in Austin at the same time, then let me know and I can point you in the right direction. I personally think it'S an eXceptional chance to See What is happening. :)

As already noted, we're still seeking sponors.

I hope to see you at one or both of these events!
