Derbycon was a blast, easily the best conference I have attended in a while. My favorite part of going to cons is meeting folks with great ideas and the average awesomeness of Derbycon attendees was astounding. I also got to meet several people I've only known through IRC, which is always fun.

My presentation, "The State of the Framework Address", covered some history (both about Metasploit and my own personal journey to becoming a developer), some current features, and a few goals for the future. If you'd like to check out my slides, they're posted on slideshare:

Several other Metasploit contributors gave excellent talks as well. HD gave the keynote, Rob Fuller and Chris Gates dropped a bunch of great tips on cool things you can do on a pentest, Carlos Perez discussed post exploitation, Peter Van Eeckhoutte talked about automating exploit dev, Josh Drake went over exploitation techniques against Java, and Ryan Linn explained how to own a network with passive sniffing. Irongeek has been posting videos at a phenomenal pace, so chances are they will all be up soon.

Here's hoping next year will be even better!
