I'll be brutally honest and say that BlackHat and Defcon has changed  
since Jeff sold it. The cost is high, considering the SA/US exchange  
rate and i'd be more inclined to look at other conferences happening  
around the world, such as AusCERT, hackinthebox, sysscan.

Defcon was always a freak show, so the noise to knowledge ratio was  
always high.
