Hacking at Random
Hacking at Random 2009 was an international technology & security conference. Four days of technology, ideological debates and hands-on tinkering. On August 13-16, 2009 the 20th anniversary edition of the four-yearly Dutch outdoor technology-conference was organized on a large camp-site at de Paasheuvel near Vierhouten, the Netherlands.
Unlike its predecessors, HAR was not a project by exactly the same people as before : there were new people involved in the organization process. Like the previous Dutch hacker cons this event thrived by using its volunteers, and called everyone including the visitor sponsors a volunteer. Everyone was expected to do their part in making the event a success. With over 170 talks and 3 large lecture halls, this edition was by far the largest in the series of quadrennial Dutch events.
