RSA conference is known for its big starts. The event certainly stands out in a year's conference tour, picking a theme around cryptography and sticking to it. This 15th edition has an Indian theme centred around ancient Vedic mathematics, and a mathematical Sage named Aryabhatta.
It just gives the event some added spice, and allows for a decent opening.
The conference this year is back in San Jose after three years in San Francisco. Surely San Jose must be thrilled with the hotel tax revenues, as its outdated conference centre has very much fallen out of grace.
