One of the things that I care about the most is getting more people excited about security. One of the easiest ways to break into this field is by going to conferences and meeting all of the awesome people. Conferences like THOTCON, BSides Chicago, BSides Detroit, and DerbyCon! However, I know that for a lot of people, especially right now, it’s nigh impossible to get work to pay for the conference much less pay for it on their own.

Therefore, I have 2 general admission tickets to THOTCON 0x4 to give away. If you are interested, please send an email to with the subject “THOTCON 0x4” telling me why you want to attend THOTCON. No word limit or anything.

You can also send an email suggesting someone you know who would benefit greatly from attending but they just can’t afford to attend and are too humble to ask for themselves. If the person who you suggested is chosen you will receive a drink of your choice at the conference on me.

All submissions have to be received by February 15, 2013. I will announce the 2 submissions that I have selected on February 18, 2013.

Please share this as often as possible! Let’s give 2 people a chance to enjoy the amazing conference that is THOTCON that would otherwise have to miss out!

A huge thanks to THOTCON for putting on this great conference and allowing me to give these tickets away.


A huge congratulations to Molly Heaven-Hoyle (@heavenhoyle) and Rob Polecek (@polacek_robert)! They have been selected to receive a free ticket to THOTCON 0x4!
