By the way, for you security enthusiasts around the SEA region, one notable conference that might interests you is BlackHat Asia. This year, again it was held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo in Singapore. This is an excellent place for networking and getting to know the people in the industry. I have had the privilege of getting to know, meeting and talking with the Pingu team, Michael Ossmann of HackRF One fame, Jeff Moss with his young kid, Anthony Lai who is HongKong's OWASP chapter lead and the founder of the VXCON, another awesome security conference which I hope I can attend one day, and a whole group of other awesome security people. This is one conference you should seriously consider to attend even if it's for the free business pass.
