Imho Loki's right, the one rylisa mentioned is tHE mUTABLE imho. Would be glad if someone could post video references to ReCon 2008 as soon as they're available, already read over at ARTeam that there might be such again.

ReCon 2008 is over.

It was a really great experience meeting so many interesting people like Ilfak and Woodmann.

The conference videos should be available in a few days.

Michael Strangelove's talk created quite a big reaction. :P

Nicolas Brulez had an unscheduled/improvised talk to replace the tHE_mUTABLE who couldn't make it.

I strongly recommend ReCon to everybody.

I sent Teddy a link to my video to add directly to the archives here.

So, nag him now. ;)

It will be available too very shortly too from http://www.iitac.org

My tool will be released there too probably at the same time.

The official ReCon videos are being uploaded right now to http://www.archive.org like the previous ones.

If I heard right, there is about 20GB of videos.

The video I sent Teddy is now available for the ReCon website along with my pdf slides.

As I said earlier, the official videos recorded live are not out yet.

I recorded this one after the conference so it is available before all the others. :P

The live version is funnier though.

Also, I messed-up a bit my live Armadillo demo. :(

But it happens...

So this video is a little less than 60 minutes with voice and a TOC.

And the Armadillo demo works. ;)

ReCon videos are finally available.



16/06/2008: The conference is now finished. We hope everyone attending recon this year had a good time. Slides and materials are now being added to the speakers page, all should be available within a week

I guess that a standard ReCon week equals 4 to 6 normal weeks.
