1. About B-Sides Cape Town
The idea of B-Sides Cape Town was hatched after some discussion over beers in a pub in a far away Eastern Cape university town.
Town will attempt to offer a healthy environment where some of Cape Town
(and hopefully South African) security professionals, system
administrators, network administrators, and anyone with a healthy
interest in Information Security can come together for one day to
listen to some interesting, if not sometimes slightly offbeat
presentations and topics relating to information security. It will
offer the opportunity to meet and engage with other people in the
field, make connections and share ideas, with the hope of fostering
closer co-operation in the information security field.
We have a venue.
A big thank you to University of Cape Town for giving us a venue that
can host 50 - 60 people. I doubt we will have that many people
attending for our first attempt at a B-Sides Cape Town. Map can be found here
