AppSec Cali is packed with great talks by an international lineup of great speakers, top level all-day training classes, lots of prize giveaways, and parties during its 4 days at the beach in Santa Monica, California.

Ask yourself: “Do I want to go to the office, or would I rather go to the beach for two, three, or four days?“ If you live in the north, would you rather dig your car out of snow/ice on a few fine January mornings, or go to the beach? Go ahead, make your day, and ours, too!

Here are all the details you may need to effectively and efficiently navigate the training workshops and the conference!
