REcon recap

We had a great time during this year's REcon Conference last week. Now it is the time to sort out our impressions. First of all, thanks to all that attended our TitanEngine training and during the course of 3 days learned how to make unpackers with our engine. We covered coding of both static and dynamic unpackers and showed how to deal with the complex protection options that reverse engineers come across on a daily basis.

 In addition to training attendees, we also want to thank everyone who grabbed one of our TitanEngine T-shirts to show support for the project. You want one too? Click here...

We can, without any false flattering, call REcon our favorite small conference and promise to be back next year too! But that doesn't mean that everything went smoothly, as there were some problems with the air conditioning that flooded the conference twitter feed with AC related rants. The heat was so bad that the conference opening talk dedicated a good amount of time to it. Being slightly older than the average REcon attendee, Richard Thieme, made a parallel between Woodstock and the problems we had. He argued that Woodstock wasn't that great either but that over time it became a myth due to people, rain and mud and that the same can be said about the heat in Montreal which will probably make us say on some later REcon "remember the one when the AC was broken? That one was great!" Because indeed it was, and as the AC problems went away, everyone's will to commune ignited. And the people who  attend the conference on a regular basis are probably the best thing about the conference. Don't get us wrong, the trainings were great, the talks were awesome but it was the people who impressed us the most. And it is these great people that we will meet again in two weeks at BlackHat US. Until then...
