Conference & Bootcamps

The sec4dev is a 4-day event, namely from February 24 to 27, 2020. The first two days, February 24 and 25, the pre-conference Bootcamps take place. Then, on February 26 and 27, there is the single-track Conference.


The Bootcamps are hands-on workshops targeting highly relevant topics in today’s software security landscape. They are held in small groups, which provides time to engage with the trainer and ask questions. The Bootcamps are tailored to supercharge your security skills in the fields of web application, IoT or threat modeling. Don't miss this opportunity!
