Wow, what an amazing experience I had at Bsides NYC 2023! As a speaker, I was blown away by the energy and enthusiasm of the attendees, and I felt truly honored to be a part of such a talented and passionate community.
From the moment I arrived at the venue, I could feel the excitement in the air. People from all over the world had come together to learn, network, and share their knowledge and experiences. The atmosphere was electric, and it was clear that everyone was there for one reason: to make the cybersecurity community stronger and more resilient.
I was particularly impressed by the diversity of the crowd. There were people from all walks of life, from seasoned industry veterans to bright-eyed newcomers just starting out in their careers. It was inspiring to see so many different perspectives and backgrounds represented in one place.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the organizers. They went above and beyond to make sure that every speaker had everything they needed to succeed, from tech support to tasty snacks. I was especially grateful to Huxley Barbee, who made sure that everything ran smoothly and was always available to answer any questions we had.
And the talks! Oh my goodness, the talks. I saw some truly amazing presentations at Bsides NYC 2023. From cutting-edge research to practical advice on how to improve security in the workplace, the speakers covered a wide range of topics that were both informative and engaging. I learned so much, and I felt inspired to take what I had learned back to my own work and make a difference.
But perhaps the best part of Bsides NYC 2023 was the networking opportunities. I met so many amazing people, from fellow speakers to attendees who were eager to connect and share their experiences. I felt like I was part of a community that was not only passionate about cybersecurity, but also supportive and welcoming to anyone who wanted to be a part of it.
In conclusion, I can't recommend Bsides NYC 2023 enough. If you have the chance to attend, do it. You won't regret it. The energy, the knowledge, and the community are all absolutely incredible, and I am so grateful to have been a part of it.
