Announcing BSides Austin 2011: Keep Security Weird!

Greetings and solicitations! We're pleased as punch to announce the 2nd annual Security BSides Austin 2011: Keep Security Weird! This year's event builds on the great success of last year's inaugural event, where we had about 75 people participating in multiple tracks on an awesome Saturday of security. This year looks to be even bigger and better, with a new venue, more space, and a lot more great content.

    To make this event as awesome as possible, we need your help! Here's what we need:
  • Speak! The CFP is open. Please register and submit your talk, or just leave a comment if you don't want to register on the site.
  • Attend! Register to attend at http://bsidesaustin2011.eventbrite.com/
  • Sponsor! BSides events are free to attendees, which means we rely exclusively on sponsors. If you're willing to contribute, please drop us a note and we'll follow-up. Sponsorship is a great way to make a low-cost investment in the industry while getting your name out there and associated with one of the hottest events around!

*NOTE: BSidesAustin is not officially associated with SXSW Interactive (though we'd like to be some day). That said, we are particularly interested in drawing developers to the event who might just happen to be in town for other reasons. There will be lots of excellent content, including some hands-on workshopping on AppSec. Please help us spread the word!!
