  • BalCCon 2013: First Contact

    This weekend ZDNet is in Serbia for BalCCon 2013: First Contact - called this as the first official hacker conference in the Balkans - and it is organized by LUGoNS/Linux Users of Novi Sad, Serbia.

    BalCCon's co-organizer Jelena Georgijevic told me,

     

    We have gone back and forth through the wars and crisis. This [BalCCon] is one of the healing processes that will help reunite our region in one industry.

    We want BalCCon to be a catalyst for numerous other projects, to inspire people to hack more, to discover more, and to be more curious.

    We want this conference to be the place of gathering for everyone from this region, and to kind of unite all dissolved parts.

    Follow BalCCon on Twitter, and the event hashtag #BalCCon.

  • Nikola Tesla - Belgrade Airport

    Upon arrival for the conference into Serbia's Belgrade airport, hackers were greeted with their very first billboard seen on entry: a tribute to the scientific pride of Serbia, Nikola Tesla.

    Tesla is also on the Serbian Dinar 100 RSD.
