It's been a long few days but I am back from Huntsville, Alabama after attending the inaugural two day event that is DevSpace Technical Conference.
For those of you that don't know, DevSpace is north Alabama's premier polyglot technology conference.
I was honored to be selected by the DevSpace team to be a presenter for their first year and give my talk "Passwords Don't Work! Using Two Factor Authentication To Secure Users".
It was my first time to Huntsville and Alabama so I was excited for the chance to get to add another pin to my map of places I have been to.
The conference was held at the Von Braun Center near the downtown of Huntsville. It's a rather large complex of meeting rooms, conference halls and even a 10,000 seat arena.
What is DinnerLab? It's the thing you need to check out now! DinnerLab is a pop up restaurant that will be hosted in a different and unique location every time. A top notch chef will come and create a special meal that will wow your tastebuds.
One of my favorite parts about DinnerLab is that they keep the location secret until the day before. For this nights event we would be dining at The Ethical Arts Collective.
Their location is an old warehouse in Franklinton on Rich Street.
Chef Stephen Eldridge of Long Beach, California came in to prepare for everyone a wonderful meal.
