I posted about Defcon on the WebPayments group and messaged a few
people, but I can't stop thinking about it. If it is anything like
last year, there will be 15,000 people there in the infosec community.
This is the place Elon Musk went to find hackers to find
vulnerabilities in the Tesla. (1). I know you all know a lot, but it
bothers me that the people doing the work tend to be the same people
and it is small in number.

In addition to Defcon there is https://www.bsideslv.org/ and blackhat
http://www.blackhat.com/ within a week.

A few upcoming Web talks at Defcon:

(3) How to Shot Web: Web and mobile hacking in 2015

Jason Haddix Director of Technical Operations, Bugcrowd

(4) Hacking Web Apps

Brent White Security Consultant, Solutionary, Inc.

(5) Extending Fuzzing Grammars to Exploit Unexplored Code Paths in
Modern Web Browsers

Saif El-Sherei Analyst, SensePost

Etienne Stalmans Analyst, SensePost
