Version Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life

Speaker: Jean-Philippe Ouellet

Person large

When Jean-Philippe was 8 years old, someone handed him their well-worn copy of K&R and said "Here kid, read this. One day you'll thank me." He got started in security by hacking games, and somehow made it through high school wearing OpenBSD shirts nearly every day. He studied Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, where he picked up random hobbies like Amateur Radio, Caving, and Dungeons & Dragons. He ran the Cyber Security Club at Virginia Tech for several years, and really enjoys going to hacker conferences and being part of the greater hacker community, where he has made many friends. These days he stays up at night contributing to Qubes OS. He is currently seeking interesting work with a positive societal impact in an interesting part of the world - feel free to contact him ;)
