Hello and welcome to BSides Odessa HACKER RESORT 2019, to be held on June 28-30!
In 2018, BSides Odessa Hacker Party hosted 60 cyber-sec pros at a sea-side villa, with an open-air conference, a big swimming pool and a heated jacuzzi serving as the first row seating for you to enjoy our speakers' talks.
But we can do better.
So, this year, we're opening a 3 day all-inclusive hacker resort (48 hours in total, see schedule) with 200+kg of food for 7 meals, 400 bottles of beer, 30 liters of rum and whiskey, 20 liters of coffee, 45 liters of redbull, 5 hookahs, possibility of an open-air sleepover at the venue (take warmer clothes to be comfy), and a fucking rock band!
All this not to mention a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and 10 hours of massages (sitting all day long at work isn't nice for your spine, go take an MRI scan).
We may also have a 2-hour long conference with 15 minute talks, but only if we get some really cool CFP submissions. If not, then we'll just party!
The Prodigy were scheduled to appear in Kyiv on June 16-18, but canceled due to their frontman's untimely death. In tribute to the original firestarter, and the iconic band, BSides Odessa will carry The Prodigy theme - with topical t-shirts, their music both recorded and live, and cool perks - open-air sleepover and massages - ONLY for those who come with hair of crazy/acid colors. Seriously, google temporary hair paints, and come party like proper hackers!
BSides Odessa is a not-for-profit series of cyber-security events, with entrance ticket fares offsetting the organization costs.
