I’m truly honoured to have been invited to keynote at Bsides Lisbon this year on November 10th.
It’ll be the first time I’ve visited Portugal, and the first time I’ve keynoted at a Bsides. Ordinarily I’d probably be feeling a bit apprehensive of speaking at a conference that I haven’t even attended, let alone keynote at.
But that’s one of the great things about BSides events – no matter where in the world you attend them, they have a familiar sense of community that welcomes you. Even if you walk in knowing no-one, you are sure to end the day having made half a dozen new friends.
So, it may be the first time I’ll be in Portugal, and the first time I’ll be attending BSides Lisbon – but it feels oddly familiar.
Hope to see you there.
