This is a premier Australian Hacking Conference and one that looks very local (which is a good thing). I’d imagine that Tuskcon is not at all vendor-pitch related, and is instead a genuine “hacker conference”. Needless to say, if you’re working with any aspect of Cybersecurity in Brisbane you might be interested in learning more about this event.
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, October 1st 2020, or created by us.
What is TuskCon?
Is a two-day hacker camp with an emphasis on hands-on learning and activities, not death by PowerPoint. Now running for its third year, TuskCon will showcase the beautiful sunshine coast region, with activities utilizing the surrounding environment. We encourage participation from all, especially new and novel activities that wouldn’t fit into a conventional con’s agenda.
Overseeing the camp is well-known infosec pinniped Lord Tuskington. The official con beer is Tusker, and anyone who’d like to assist with the logistics of somehow getting a palette of the stuff shipped from Vanuatu and not seized by customs should get in touch.
Many infosec conferences and other events are being postponed to the September – December 2020 timeframe, when experts predict we will have emerged from the crisis. As a grassroots conference with a low budget and no sponsors/vendors to coordinate, we have greater flexibility to simply postpone to early 2021, as not to congest the end of the year with conferences.
If you have a ticket for TuskCon 2020 and want to secure your spot, hold onto it! We will save your place. For those wanting refunds, please reach out to us. We will work with Eventbrite to refund your ticket purchases. Please be aware that TuskCon 2020 sold out very quickly, so you may not be guaranteed a seat at TuskCon 2021. We ask that all attendees cancel their travel plans to get as much refund or credit as possible. Thanks for your support, and see you after the apocalypse in 2021!
