Updates on BruCON 2010 Presentations and Workshops

If you weren't sure about buying a ticket for BruCON, we updated our schedule page with updates on the BruCON 2010 presentations and workshops. A final schedule will appear by August but these are the details on the confirmed talks and workshops.

BUT this is not all, there are few MORE things we have in mind for you and we will publish them in the next weeks. Let's say we don't want to spoil all the surprises at once.

Be aware that there are only a handful of "early bird" basic ticket left. So be fast. These tickets include all the meals for two days if you want to compare these prices to other events. We still run as a non-profit event run by volunteers. Feel free to support us any way you feel like.

Training sessions are still available before the conference and you can get some unique courses by international experts you won't find anywhere else.
