The official vendor list for DEF CON 23 is live! 

That money burning a hole in your pocket? It's dangerous if it goes unchecked. You can avoid the hazard of fire by turning that money into temperature-stable, safe goods and services with the smiling merchants of the vendor area. For those of you inclined to the games of chance, payouts in the vendor area hover very close to 1:1 - you're not gonna get those odds on the casino floor.

Don't become a pocket combustion statistic. The vendors are here to help.

Crash and Compile? What's that?

Crash and Compile is an ACM-style programming contest crossed with a good old fashion college drinking game.
You get a problem, and have to code a solution to it. The catch is that if your code doesn't compile, seg-faults, doesn't produce the correct output, you have to take a drink... All this takes place on the contest stage. It's chaos meets coding. As the night progresses, you are either a really good programmer, really drunk, or a bit of both.

Official announcement on the DEF CON forums:

We’ve seen a few people tear down the drive trains from electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf, Prisuses, or the Chevy Volt. We’ve also seen someone tear down the battery pack found in a Tesla Model S. What we haven’t seen until now is a reverse…

DEF CON Demo Labs Schedule is LIVE!

https://www.defcon.org/html/defcon-23/dc-23-demo-labs-schedule.html

We asked for demo submissions, and boy howdy did you people ever answer! For the first time, we have a whole community-powered demo area - five different sessions of your projects and demonstrations to share with the attendees. You're definitely gonna want to make some time to check this out.

The schedule is live, and of course there are links to all the abstracts there. We're amped about this - and we hope you will support the Demo Lab and spread the word.

This is gonna be so cool.

As promised, here's the final additions to the lineup for DEF CON 101. Make yourself familiar, maybe pick out a couple. Nobody likes to be standing in line for an SRO talk only to get stuck in the hallway, missing all the goodness because of a failure to plan.

Well, there's probably a rule that says someone must like that, and probably mods a subreddit about it like /r/missedyetanothercoolDEFCONtalk. But that someone is weird. Weird and possibly dangerous. Don't be that someone. Read ahead and make some plans.
