For years, the inner-workings of the DefCon NOC were kept under wraps. Last year Wired was allowed a sneak-peak inside. This year at DefCon17 we are opening the kimono. In true open-source style, we are holding a peer-review discussion session. We will be showing you how the DefCon NOC operates, how the network is laid out, designed, what it is we do. This is not a typical lecture-style talk, but instead intended to be an interactive session, which is why we've arranged to hold it in the more intimate setting. We often get people interested in participating as part of the team - this is our way of opening up and allowing you to have a chance to review the network, make suggestions, tell us where you think we could improve upon things, and make your own contribution to DefCon!
