ZaCon is a community driven infosec conference. The aim is to build a better community of hackers in ZA, and provide a platform for up-n-coming speakers while still getting some inspiration from the greats.
Targetting neither industry nor acedemia specifically, ZaCon exists without funding (on purpose, don't offer) or any frills that would make you want to attend other than a passion for infosec.
ZaCon V is nearing. It's on the 16th of November and will be hosted at the University of Johannesburg. We'll have the schedule out shortly.
ZaCon V CFP
ZaCon V CFP is out, and closes on the 25th of August. You just need an abstract to apply, don't waste time.
All the details are here.
