I recently spoke with Don Donzal about his upcoming ChicagoCon 2008 and I think it will be a great event for those hackers and network security folks out there in TECH cocktail land. This event is a conference that does not include a lot of sponsors and outside messaging. It is truly here to help people learn and grow in their respective security related fields. Not only can you learn from some of the most respected folks in the field at ChicagoCon, you can also take certification exams and participate in security boot camps which will help you move further in your career.
