Sadly, Sharkfest 2013 has now come to an end.
Over the past few days, Wireshark instructors, users, developers, and varied supporters gathered at the Clark Kerr Campus of UC Berkeley for another successful conference. Attendees were able to glean tips, tricks, and use cases from some of the most experienced Wireshark users in the world, learning new ways to solve network and application problems with the industry's most popular protocol analyzer. Over 15 countries were represented, with attendees selecting from 48 instructional sessions, several hands on labs, three keynote addresses, and some great social events. A bootcamp session to prepare attendees for the Wireshark Certified Network Analyst exam followed on the heels of the conference, delivered by none other than Laura Chappell.
