Thank you from semprix

In-behalf of the goons and volunteers of ROOTCON I would like to personally say THANK YOU!

This years conference was an epic one.

The topics delivered were highly technical and we thank our speakers for that! The trainings were jam-packed, we are looking into expanding our trainings with different cutting-edge topics by next year. The games were well participated, receiving feedbacks that they enjoyed our Capture The Flag this year makes us to do more of it. The newly introduced Semprix’ Mysterybox didn’t gain much players, maybe it was too difficult I will try to adjust the difficulty next year.

With the newly introduced multiple tracks, the Capture The Flag had it’s dedicated area so players can focus more on the game with comfortable table and seats. The chill-out area was another best decision we had, through out the two day conference we consumed 70 liters of beer, awesome right?

The post-con party was pretty epic as well! We consumed 20 bottles of hard-drinks from Jack Daniels, Bacardi, to Mojito, 120 bottles of beer were served not to mention Smirnoff Mule sponsored us 400 bottles!

Right after the conference the goons were already brain-storming what more cool stuffs we can add to next year. Here are some stuffs to watch-out for next year.
1. We will introduce Fort ROOTCON, an area around the conference were tools and exploits have demos.
2. Hacker Jeopardy will be rescheduled for everyone to be able to attend.
3. Day 1 party and movie night will be held at the conference hall.
4. Capture the Flag will be extended from 10:00am to 11:00pm in-conjunction with the day 1 party and movie night.

Some pre-con activities we are brewing up.
1. Campus tour with student Capture The Flag.
2. Hackerspace in January
3. ROOTCON Kids will be introduced as mini-event around the month of May.

ROOTCON will continue to serve the hacking community specially in the Philippines, where hackers, geeks, pros will meet old and new friends, enjoy and of course learn from each other. With that said it wouldn't be possible without our awesome attendees, you rock!

Again I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!

All the best,
