PHDays 2012 - Overview

PHDays 2012 - Overview

06/08/12 | by zveriu | Categories: Conference,, Write-up

Motto: “Во первых, огромное спасибо за замечательную организацю конференции - очень очень приятно учавствовать в PHDays с безупречной организацией!” is over and it’s kind of sad - I am already looking forward for the PHDays 2013 and already started to draft thoughts for my next presentation for this very cool conference.

The organization of the conference was fantastic, brilliant, very professional and flawless.

Positive Technologies, the main organizer of this security forum, have taken care of all the smallest details: flights, hotels, airport transfer (which in Moscow is a real hassle if you ever had the experience).

Just a few facts that I am sure say it all:

  • the event was free to attend and around 1500-1800 participants have shown up
  • it featured 2 days of multi-tracks - there was a minimum 3 tracks and up to 6 tracks in a given hour slot
  • I haven’t seen significant delays in this massively packed track list, which is very very impressive - kudos to organizers!
  • there was an entire real mini-TV crew, running live editing, transmission and recording in a very professional manner (this was a bit unusual, since speakers could not connect their laptops to video output, but it was an interesting experience after all)
  • the organizers thrown a very nice live rock concert as a closing event (PS: I have insanely enjoyed “Дорогая я купил тебе ХУРМУ” cover)
  • it was entirely awesome to meet the PTSecurity organizer crew as well as all the other distinguished speakers!

It is needless to say that the unlimited rivers of various alcoholic drinks (and NOT just vodka!) along with very fine russian delis were there during the entire conference.

Sadly, I have missed most of the CTF action going on there, but the fun part is that CTF had a ‘dumpster-diving’ exercise - the idea is brilliant :)! Perhaps the next time the organizers could throw an ‘un-shred challenge’ twist to the ‘dumpster diving’ part ;)

Again, thanks to whole PHDays2012 crew, to the speakers and to the attendees! Hope to see you all there next year as well.

Securely yours,
