BSides Vancouver recap




BSides Vancouver has come and gone and I'll have to say that it went quite well. I've been meaning to write a post-conference write-up and finally I've found some time to do so.

One of the highlights of the conference was the fact that there was a large attendance. I think it worked out to just over a hundred people in attendance and a full speaker track.

(Shamelessly stolen from the BSides Vancouver site itself.)

Most of the slides including my own have been posted here. If you're looking for my bug-ridden source code, you can find it by visiting my Github repository for it!

Basically I gave a talk on capturing personal data from Twitter. Nothing special, but it allows for you to pull phone numbers, Blackberry PINs, and IP addresses 'automagically'.


(My lovely girlfriend captured me talking about some nonsense.)

It was quite nice to meet the speakers who came to the dinner we had the night after. Admittedly it was a bit difficult the day after, but that is par for the course.

Also, I'd like to point out that I do have a new domain:
colin.keigher.ca

Finally got around to registering the domain after a buddy of mine kept pestering me to do so. This domain will stick around as my blog but slowly I'll be migrating things off of it. Not much of a BSides recap I guess, but I definitely am looking forward to next year.
