Getting ready for DEF CON 27

1. August 2019

We are excited to present one of our in-house developments at DEF CON 27 – the CST Chef. Our Heroes and developers Sebastian Puttkammer and Ralf Almon, Managing Consultants at usd HeroLab, have taken a brief moment to say some quick words.

Ralf, DEF CON is a staple conference of the international hacker scene. How did you react when you learned that your CST Chef had been accepted?

Ralf Almon: I was extremely excited that the Chef had been accepted, of course. Sebastian and I have put in a lot of time and work. But I’m also humble at the thought of being able to present our work to an international audience.

Sebastian, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about your presentation?

Sebastian Puttkammer: (laughs) I pray to the “demo gods” that nothing will go wrong on our big day.

You’re off to Las Vegas on Sunday. What are your last minute preparations?

RA: We are in the final stages of refining the recipe even further. We hope the audience will like the taste.

SP: By the way, to all of you out there: We can always use more chefs at usd HeroLab.
