I attended the ROOTCON 12 hacking conference held at the Taal Vista Hotel last September 27-28, 2018. Although I've been dreaming of attending the conference for a while, it was only this year that I was able to save some money for this event. As expected, the event was great and I enjoyed all the technical talks. I also got to meet some security professionals from various industries. Lastly, I got a cool badge. The slides for the talks are available here.
