2019 Security BSides Orlando

Saturday March 30th, the 2019 Security BSides Orlando conference was held.  This is the 6th one, and the largest yet.  Believe they had over 700 in attendance.  As last year, it was held at Full Sail University's Live venue location. 

This year there were 4 tracks of speakers, along with several workshops and a CFT.  Several sponsors were in attendance.  No job track this year.

There was a book signing with the book Tribe of Hackers as there were 3 hackers from the book in attendance.

And there was an electronic badge again this year, but this time was a little more complex and programmable. 

No idea where next year's event will be, but will probably be tied to SANS Orlando again.
