When Infosec Island sent me to Black Hat, their brief was simple. Find some interesting people to talk to and report back. However, half way through the conference, I realised I bumped into many first time conference goers. They were easy to spot, sat in the back of the halls, mingled with the one person they knew and politely only filled their plates with as much food as they could comfortably consume.
So, I called back to base and informed them that what we needed to provide is a handy and quick guide for people on how they can best navigate and survive a conference like Black Hat.
