What is anticon?
In August 2016, on a balcony overlooking the Vegas strip, three former coworkers admitted that they only went to conferences to see friends. The venues were too crowded, the presentations too stale, and Vegas had lost its appeal. The concept of anticon was born - a conference without presentations, panels, villages, or vendor booths. A networking-only conference for industry experts.
anticon is largely unstructured and most activities are coordinated via an invite-only slack group. You can catch up with a friend at the bar, discuss your favorite vulnerability while floating in the pool, share cyber threat intelligence tools, or debate cyber security policy while hiking through the desert.
anticon 2019 will be held May 10-12 in Sedona, Arizona. If you plan to attend, please contact pepper for details.
Possible activities include:
- Lounging at the pool
- Visiting ancient cliff dwellings
- Group dinner
