    If you want to see a new forum or sub forum created, or have an idea on how to better improve things please post your requests here.

    Please set aside space in the forums, and planning sections for HDA - Hackers with Disabilities - we help plan to ensure that people with ADA needs can access, enjoy, and participate in DEFCON!

    Last year we provided maps, guides, and we surveyed the con areas to ensure that people with ADA needs found an accessible and welcoming con.

    The primary contact for HDA is delchi on the forums, and @HDA_DEFCON on twitter.

        So not sure where to post this. I sent a message to the contact link below also. There is a DCFOB - DefCon Friends of Bill group. We have AA/NA meetings every year at the conference. Started by Jeff McN... We have a DCFOB discord server. Was hoping to get DCFOB officially registered as a DC Group and maybe a forum for discussion... although we have the discord thing. Let me know, Regards, Craig "§ƱЯfↁ4wg" Ellrod
