Ladycon! Noobycon! Kiwicon!

We know that going to a hacker con can be intimidating, especially the first time. We're actually all very nice, but to help you along the way, there's a couple of events on the Friday before Kiwicon just for you. 

The first is a partnership with our chums at Girl Geek Dinner, who are running a clambake GGD event on Friday night especially for women coming to Kiwicon. This is a great chance to meet all the other lady-hackers who'll be at Kiwicon before it turns into a complete sausage-fest. For more info check out the Wellington GGD site, and you can buy tickets right here

The second is in2security's "Orientation Briefing - Surviving Kiwicon 101", 5pm Friday, at Meow, where you'll get yelled at by Drill Sargent Ladynerd about hackercon opsec, talking to people, and all sorts of other useful tips, no doubt. If you're a complete noob, this is a great way to make sure you have the best Kiwicon possible.
