Here are the answers to all your questions.

What is Ekoparty?


Ekoparty is a hacking and infosec conference that's been held every year in Buenos Aires since 2001. It is known by the technical quality of its contents and by being the meeting point for security researchers, programmers, sysadmins, hackers, nerds, curious and tech enthusiasts.

Ekoparty is also a community itself, where people interested in infosec meet every year, learn, have fun, find jobs  and grow professionally.

Las charlas, hacktivities y workshops son la base de un evento que cada año va un paso más allá y sorprende con propuestas artísticas, entrevistas, fiestas, nuevos formatos, y un sentido de la comunidad sin igual.
