QuahogCon2010.jpg

No, it’s not a joke from Family Guy (although it would be very cool if Seth MacFarlane showed up!) Rhode Island’s first hacker con is shaping up to be an exciting event.

QuahogCon is a regional conference for the hacker culture in all forms. Hardware, Software, Security, Social, Eco Hacking, Zero Impact Living. Like most hacker cons, it will run Friday to Sunday. We’ll have two tracks: one for InfoSec topics and the other track will be a mix of all the other topics with a bit of an emphasis on hardware hacking and DIY electronics. Besides our perennial InfoSec favorites, we want to hear from some new voices on a wider range of topics. If it’s a good hack, we want to hear what you’re doing.

Along with the two talk tracks, we’ll have a hardware hacking lounge where you can work on the hackable badge or anything else you’re inspired to do. While we all have the utmost respect for Joe Grand, his badges aren’t as hackable as we’d like. We’ll be going with an open source, open hardware platform for the QuahogCon badge.

The organizers are limiting registration to 150 attendees, which I expect to fill up quickly. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local hacker space, AS220 Labs.
