Root Con 7 Annual premier Hacker conference – quick write up.


The annual premier hacker conference in Philippines, Root Con, went successful the 7th time. It was held in Parklane International Hotel, Cebu City last September 13 and 14.

Technology Professionals and Security Enthusiasts meet and greet in the conference as the speakers(international and local) demonstrated various interesting topics.

I may not had attended all the sessions but I was really fascinated by talks like, “Social Network Analysis as a Network Tool” by Mr. Wilson Chua, a Microsoft hall of famer in the Philippines and the “Cybercrime Panel Discussion” of Atty. Al Vitangcol. ( Thanks to Atty. Al for answering my question in a private conversation 😀 )

The network ninjas specializing ‘wi-fu’ so much enjoyed in getting first to capture the flag, there were more than 5 teams joined it. Another game, ‘r00t me if you can’ somewhat entertains the spectators as the game moderator plays with the user who accepted the challenge of r00ting the box.

Of course, a hacker’s conference will not be completed without “beers – post con party,” considered second hacker’s best friend next to computers :P.
