Just like always, Black Hat was great. I got learn a bunch, and met a lot of interesting people. Most of the speakers were excellent, but some of them could use lessons in public speaking.
I did have an issue with a lousy training class, but the Black Hat staff quickly helped me change into one that was more technical. Apparently there was more than one class that was a total dud, and hopefully they will resolve it by next year. One thing that I would suggest is to have a scale of how technical the class will be. The training class that I had left looked good on paper, but after the first few minutes, I knew that it wasn’t advanced enough.
Thanks to Jeff, Ping, Nico, and all the other staff that helped me during the event. I hope to be back next year.
