Our SkyDogCon family has said "See you at SkyDogCon 7" and headed home.  All the gear has been carefully packed and and put away - but you don't have to put away your wonderful SkyDogCon badge.  



This is the first of several applications to be released as we impatiently wait for SkyDogCon 7.

Thanks again to Redvers Davies and TrustedSec for these amazing badges!

SCHEDULE POSTED!

Ok students, let us begin today's lesson with...


Speaker Lineup & Schedule

The schedule is posted HERE and in the "Schedule" tab in the navbar...if you're reading this an not on our blog, well...

There are some changes expected due to speaker travel schedules, etc. (insert typical legalese blah here).  Even though you're not planning on leaving your seat the whole time anyways, we require you handle your biological functions in a designated area which means...pay attention to the schedule so you don't miss something important!

IMPORTANT NEW STUFF!

LOCATION

Remember we're at a new location this year! Don't show up to the old place just cause we were there the last 4 years in a row!  Go to the Location page to get directions, see where to park, etc.

#SDC6 Keynote Speakers Announcement!

FRIDAY KEYNOTE

DAVE KENNEDY


Dave Kennedy is founder and principal security consultant of TrustedSec, creator of the Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET), and Artillery. He co-authors the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES); a framework designed to fix the penetration testing industry. Dave is also the co-founder of DerbyCon, a large-scale security conference in Louisville Kentucky.



He is also running against 2 clowns in this year's presidential race! We're honored to have him come and give a "stump speech" at SkyDogCon! Show your support when you arrive by wearing you #Dave4President swag (hint, there may be some at registration).





SATURDAY KEYNOTE

JOHNNY LONG


A professional hacker by trade, author by brute force, public speaker, “pirate by birth” and “ninja by training”. He travelled to Uganda in 2007 after his wife Jen was profoundly affected by a mission trip there the year before. During his first two-week trip, Johnny’s eyes were opened to how the “rest of the world lived”. From the Twitter version of the story: “Her pictures. Africans. Orphans. Ridiculous poverty. Filth. Huge smiles. Laughter. Happy kids?!? Happy about what? It ate at me, haunted me.” Johnny found that his (unlikely) skills could literally save lives when he leveraged them for more than personal gain. Realizing that others in the community might be interested in lending their skills to help others in need, Johnny founded Hackers For Charity in 2007 with it’s controversial tagline and T-shirt logo, “I hack charities”.

Johnny is coming at personal sacrifice to family time (kiddos home from college) to come and share with us.  We ask you bring donations for HackersForCharity.org or give online to support Johnny, his family, and the awesome work he's doing!
