Posted on 11 March 2017 (0)

The Fail of Things returns for 2017! The Fail of Things is a event celebrating the hilariously insecure products and software being sold under the push to “Internet” everything. Come, laugh, drop 0day, and give these little bugs nobody cares about the appreciation they deserve. We know you’ve been facepalming at all the bugs you’ve found since last year’s LayerOne. Submit to The Fail of Things and let’s cry in our beers together!

The Fail of Things will be held in the Chillout/Lightning Talk area of LayerOne on Sunday afternoon. Submission criteria and full details are available on the Fail of Things page!

Sincerely,
The LayerOne Staff

LayerOne 2016 was awesome! We got great feedback about the extra breathing space in the new hotel, the new Fail of Things event, Sam Bowne’s Hacking Workshop, and of course all of our regular events. How did you like everything this year? Please send us any feedback you have about the new hotel, presentations, villages, contests, and parties to contact{@}layerone.org or via Twitter @Layer_One!

Thank you to all of this year’s attendees, speakers, staff, and our amazing sponsors. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
