What is TuskCon?

Is a two day hacker camp (all Australian cons are two days now) with an emphasis on hands on learning and activities, not death by powerpoint. Conceived in the glorious afterglow of Platypus Camp 2017, TuskCon will showcase the beautiful sunshine coast region, with activities utilizing the surrounding environment. We encourage participation from all, especially new and novel activities that wouldn't fit into a conventional con's agenda.

Overseeing the camp is well known infosec pinniped Lord Tuskington. The official con beer is Tusker, and anyone who'd like to assist with the logistics of somehow getting a pallette of the stuff shipped from Vanuatu and not seized by customs should get in touch.

Location & date

The con will be held at Cotton Tree Caravan Park, Maroochydore on the 19th and 20th of May. The venue is a 1.5 hour drive from Brisbane, with public transport from both Brisbane and Sunshine Coast airports. It is also accessible by jet ski.

Tickets

TuskCon is limited to 50 tickets, which are now available on eventbrite. Get in early to avoid missing out, it is highly likely the con will sell out quickly (the organizers sold out years ago).

Program

TuskCon is based around workshops and activities, rather than an emphasis on presentations.
