 Our Review

We love THOTCON and it is on our list of the top must-attend cybersecurity conferences. It started about 10 years ago by a group of Chicago hackers who wants a low-cost conference. If you love hacking, this is a place to be. I actually interviewed one of the cofounders of THOTCON a few years back which you can read about here.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, July 25th 2019, or created by us.

THOTCON (pronounced \ˈthȯt\ and taken from THree – One – Two) is a hacking conference that is based in Chicago Illinois, United States. This is a non-commercial, non-profit, event looking to give the best conference possible on a very limited budget.

The idea started in late 2009 by a group of Chicago hackers who wanted to start a local low-cost conference.

Since Chicago has a great hacking and security scene in small pockets, the group wanted to bring everyone together at a real conference where travel and spending a ton of money is not needed.

Proceeds from the event are applied toward the next year’s conference with the hope to be able to put on a better conference each year.

THOTCON 0xB (2020) will be held in Chicago on May 8 – 9, 2020. The event is considered as one of the attended conference and proof of that is the event tickets are sold in less than 3 days in 2018 so expect the tickets to sell out just as fast this year.

It will be held at a location only to be disclosed to participants and speakers during the week before the event.

THOTCON is produced by THOTCON Infinity NFP, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
