BeerCon2 (#BC2) - Rise of the Rookie

The next Beer Farmers virtual event, BeerCon2 - The Rise of the Rookie.

BeerCon2 (#BC2) - Rise of the Rookie

During 2020, many physical information security conferences have had to be cancelled, with just a handful being hosted online.

The Beer Farmers want to give those accepted to deliver rookie talks and anyone else with limited or no experience a chance to have their say, share some insights and / or experiences.

BeerCon2 - Rise of The Rookie is a conference in support of that.

The aim is to attract folks from all walks of life, provide a safe environment and give them a great opportunity to gain some confidence in delivering information to new audiences.

As a Beer Farmers event, there will also be plenty of fun involved.
