BSidesCharm 2017
This year promises to be the biggest yet, with 1000 people expected.  The event format will be very similar to the past two years - talk tracks, training tracks and workshops.  New for 2017 will be the addition of a Hiring Village (Saturday only), where attendees can talk to companies looking to hire as well as talking to volunteers on ways to enhance resumes or even just get general career guidance.  If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for 2017, please visit our Sponsor Page.

All of our tickets were sold.  We do not have a wait list, because there are no tickets left.  Our best advice is to ask around to see if anyone has a ticket they can no longer use.
