BSides Huntsville is an annual security conference located in The Rocket City. 2017 will be its 4th consecutive year! Previous years were well received and videos are available from IronGeek. All BSides teams are volunteers working hard to put together a productive and enjoyable conference.

Please make time to visit the sponsors between talks.

 High Res Logo

The Huntsville metro area has the highest per capita concentration of engineers in the country. We consistently rank near the top for annual lists of best cities. It was rockets from Huntsville that first put man on the moon. For 2015 we were #1 Best City for Engineers. For 2016, we were ranked #1 Best Affordable Places to Live.

If your business is tech, Huntsville is a great place to be. If you are not sure where to start, we have non-profits eager to help.

If this is your first time visiting Huntsville, we encourage you to tour the city and one of Alabama's top destinations: The U.S. Space & Rocket Center. It is about 5 miles away from the conference at Dynetics (Solutions Complex building). Shopping and restaurants are 4 miles away at Bridge Street Town Centre.
