ShmooCon officially kicks off today Friday January 27, 2012, but yesterday was LobbyCon at the Hilton Hotel at 1919 Connecticut Ave, NW in Washington, DC.
The Lobby became a mini conference where conversations, newly forged relationships and ideas were shared in every corner of the hallways by attendees of ShmooCon and those who simply showed up to be part of the action and fellowship.
Someone stated, LobbyCons are where we come up with ideas, where the deals are made, where the projects are talked about and where the real learning is done. After an hour LobbyConning, I would have to agree.
In the Lobby yesterday, many notable individuals were present and among such were Dual Core, Marco & Kevin Figueroa also known as the Figueroa Brothers as well as Johnny Long of HackersforCharity.org. Johnny talked about his project in Uganda as well as a recent task participated in. A very approachable and pleasant individual, we wish him great success and as always SecurityOrb.com continues to support his effort.
Overall, if LobbyCon is an indication of what is in store for ShmooCon, then let get it started.
