Derbycon was awesome. It was good to finally meet @HackingDave in the flesh. There were a lot of familiar faces. I decided to drive to Derbycon instead of fly. It was about a 9 hour drive but what the heck, it flew by like nothing. In comparison from something like Defcon to Derby, Derby is more my style. They limit ticket sales and it was not crowded wall to wall. Everyone was real friendly. The speakers they had this year were awesome and downtown louisville was a better than I expected. If you go across the Ohio river then you end up in Indiana which is where my hotel was (only a 5 minute drive still). The closing ceremonies is where I think you could see the love and sincerity of the con. A ton of money was raised for charity and the "Unity" I think was there. Dave had said several times that they want it to be like family and I honestly think he is doing a great job. Although if you are wanting to make nothing but $$$ like others, quality goes down. Derby is a great example of Quality over Quantity. I had a great time and hope to see some of you guys next year. Tickets do sell out pretty fast so right when they go on sale, you have to hop on it!.
Special thanks to H4v0K for donating his ticket so s0lst1c3 could join me.
