We have been organizing security conferences for more than ten years. The major part of them are boring corporate events. However, this conference is something completely different. It not only inspires, it is very practical and quite counter-cultural.

Defcon has a competitor now. It's nice.

It's this coziness to it that conferences of this size rarely have.

PHDays is special because of combining hackers and business together.
PHDays has been very impressive. It's a combination of being very well organized and having a lot of great content. The location is also fantastic.
