ROOTCON Press: For your reading pleasures
Posted on: 10.22.17

"The perspective of a hacker has gone into the negative, where it's synonymous with criminal.

200 years ago you called us creators and you called us artists, and you called us inventors.

-Jayson E. Street "

One of ROOTCON's vision is to shape and recover the perspective of a hacker, ROOTCON opened its doors to the Press letting them know what we do, what we share, and how the community has helped in the digital landscape.

Thank you for another great ROOTCON
Posted on: 10.05.17

Another ROOTCON made it to the books! We are very much flattered how the hacking community participated the event.

For the last 10 years we have gotten together with our fellow hackers to share knowledge and enjoy each other’s company by testing our skills and trying to outwit each other during the grueling hacker games and outdrink each other at the parties. It’s been a wild ten years and we can hardly believe that we have breached the decade mark and are now embarking on, what we hope, is the beginning of another decade.

We always strive to make ROOTCON the best conference in the country, best content, top-notched speakers and the bang for the buck.

To all humans a big thanks to you all! For the newbies we hope you enjoyed your first ROOTCON, for our regular con-goers we hope you enjoyed the conference and had another great ROOTCON experience.

To our speakers, you rock big time! The content of ROOTCON wouldn't be the same without you Infosec rockstars!

To our sponsors, a big thanks for giving our event an extra awesomeness!

And to the Goons and volunteers of ROOTCON thank you for your sleepless nights, for your hard-work, and for the awesomeness you always impart to the community.

As early as now we are already brewing something cool for ROOTCON next year! Stay tuned!

Thank you all! See you all next year!

All the best,

Official Hoody

After several years ROOTCON has decided to produce this badass Official ROOTCON Hoody, but wait there's a catch to make it extra special the ROOTCON Shop won't be selling them, there are only two means of getting it.

1. Become a crew at ROOTCON.
