Two weekends ago Wellington played host to the 5th Kiwicon. This was was the second time that I've been to this event and I was well impressed by how it has grown - attendance has doubled in two years and the new venue (Wellington's Opera House) was both beautiful and roomy. The talks this year were a good mix of technical and more general with time being given to the new 3 strikes copyright law that has come into effect in NZ.
Highlights include Hacking Hollywood, a sensible approach to securing web browsers and the hilarious F is for Fail by Fosm and Fobski. As with last year over the two days much beer was drunk and bullshit talked about and I came away slightly smarter than I was when I arrived. Result.
A full list of the talks is available here.
