ShmooCon 2014 will be held in Washington, DC at the Washington Hilton, January 17th – 19th. This East Coast Hacker’s Convention is as much as a frat party in spirit as a cutting-edge computing specialist group. This groups conference style is my kind of convention. With lightning rounds of talks that amount to only 5 minutes each, the speakers cut to the chase and drive their point home in many creative ways. Fire Talks are 15 minute presentations so that many more presentations and ideas can be shared with the group.
Hack Fortress really got my attention…the 30 minutes of non-stop, no holds barred, hacking team event is not for the faint of heart. 6 Tf2players and 4 Hackers will square off against another team of Tf2 players and hackers. Points are achieved by solving hack puzzles of all shapes and sizes. Those range from the ridiculous to the obscenely technical. When the thirty minutes is up, the team with the most points wins. Maybe non-technical spectators can attend?
While visiting Washington, DC, our Washington DC Inn is but a block away from the Washington Hilton and an ideal alternative for competitive hotel rates in the area. Hack into our web page and book your reservation right away.
