live streaming recording right here!

what's purplecon like? well it's kinda like.... maybe digital shampoo? mmm, so clean and fragrant. don't you wish you had some moisturiser for your config files? digital fabric softener to smooth out your javascript? look it's easier if we just show you.

what's the plan, chief? get in, get out, celebration bubble tea in the morning.

who is purplecon for? developers, students, fictional characters, security people, weird niche enthusiasts, teachers, friends of friends. anyone who wants to learn about defensive computer security.

who's watching the doors? blango, while you and i sneak in the back, dressed as waitstaff. you look cute in a bow tie. the outfit from last time should still fit.

how are the talks different? talks are defensive, positive, and actionable. they're about how to help, rather than break. there are writeups with the takeaways of every tallk. here's last year's talk recordings.

october 16th? isn't that the day before kawaiicon? nice catch, internet traveller. purplecon is happening the day before kawaiicon, so you can go to both for 3 days of crisp conferencing.

this better be worth it pack your things, we're going tonight.

wait so.... what's the, uh, deal with kawaiicon and purplecon? oh, well, they're just two conferences that are on next to eachother.

it's just.... will they? ....won't they? we're not really sure what you're talking about, sorry.
