The conference has not even started yet, and there are huge lines already!
All these people are trying to buy Black Hat gear like polo shirts, jackets, and hats.
And the lines for registration are worse!
But you do get a cool bag, notepad, and other goodies once you do get a badge.
I would say wait until later in the day to get your badge and goodie bag so you don’t have to wait in these lines. But then again, maybe you like the crowds and talking to various like minded folks.
