      i doubt it... they are very interested in finding out what you are carrying with you when u do the entry. Didn't know they spy on tech peeps huh?

    was it recorded for viewing later. Seem a bit unbecoming of a tech meetup that can't do it, lol.

    Thanks for a great meetup! Was really great engaging with the local folks - looking forward to many more meetings.

    As requested - the slides for the talk I gave yesterday are posted here:

    In addition, the talk that was more focused on application level security, and getting applications to be more "cohesive" in how they can handle security related events is here: I know it's a bit of a mess (most of my slides are), but I'd be happy to deliver it sometime soon in the region.

    Terrific speakers, and great opportunity to meet folks and become involved in the community. Unfortunately all free MeetUps suffer from no-shows, I suggest a $5 reservation fee, it tends to cut no shows by 1/2 to 2/3rds. It did for the AI MeetUp which I had created and run.

    Just some reminders about the meeting:

    • Government ID (e.g., driver’s license, passport) will be needed to enter 101 Barclay.
    • All visitors with bags will have them scanned via an airport style scanning machine.
    • Government ID (e.g., driver’s license, passport) will be needed to check in at the security desk and obtain a visitor badge.
    • There is construction in the building and as a result there is quite a bit of scaffolding in place and the elevators are running a little slow.

    Expecting 200 people so please arrive early to avoid check-in lines.

    Thanks and see you then!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
