IN-PERSON TICKET PLUS TRAINING

  • Raise your actual hand and do all those other things that people actually do in actual physical classrooms. It’ll be great, actually.
  • Enjoy a nice sit-down dinner on Monday eve (6/14) and get assistance (if needed) setting up your laptop for your upcoming class. Just don’t spill anything on the keyboard.
  • Take advantage of advanced access to the WWHF labs on Tuesday (6/15) night. We’ll have pizza ready for you, too.
  • Learn from seasoned infosec pros for two whole jam-packed days.
  • Delight in the fact that you get everything that in-person conference ticket holders get (see below), including access to the virtual portion of the conference.


IN-PERSON TICKET

  • Walk with your actual feet, clap with your actual hands, and do all those other things that people actually do at actual physical conferences. In-person networking is great.
  • Do you remember seeing people in person? It’s nice.
  • Take a whiff of your surroundings. Until someone cracks the code on transmitting smells over the web, you’re out of luck when it comes to the nasal portion of the conference. Unless you come in person.
  • Get 16 CPEs for attending the conference. Just don’t bug us when it comes to submitting them. Just kidding. But seriously.
  • Hop in a car and drive to Lake Tahoe or downtown Reno. Or wherever you want, really. We don’t care.
  • Attend a workshop. We’ll have workshops related to using DNS search for cyberinvestigations, Atomic Red Team, and more.
Want more? Fair enough!


VIRTUAL TICKET

  • Do your thing on Discord. We’ll have a private server setup for all conference attendees, but especially for YOU.
  • Watch Tracks 1 and 2 from the comfort (not to mention peace and quiet) of your own home.
  • Get the chance to hear from our awesome keynote speakers: Naomi Buckwalter, Paul Vixie, and Joshua Wright.
  • Get yourself some CPEs (16 of them, to be exact).
  • Participate in workshops, the Escape Room, the virtual Backdoors & Breaches tournament, and the MetaCTF Capture the Flag event.
  • Enjoy your Swag Bag Lab (SBL). It’s a lab. That fits in your swag bag. Neat, eh?
  • Get advanced access to the conference recordings after the whole shebang ends.
