#1047 YSTS X: The highlights of the COOLEST security conference in Brazil
One day after BSides LatAm, it was the turn of another security conference in Brazil: You Shot The Sheriff, now in its tenth edition. Happening on one of the coolest days in Sao Paulo, the event took place at Villa Bisutti, where the whole event was very well organised.

The welcome coffee was a good opportunity to meet some friends and also make new ones, as the majority of the security professionals from Brazil and also other countries were attending the event.

Luiz, Nelson and Willian opened the event by talking about the difference between the first edition to the tenth, showing that it has become much more mature and professional but is still a challenge to make it happen. They also talked of their work to keep the event the same size, as they believe that increasing the number of attendees could decrease of the quality of the event, something they work hard to improve with each edition.

After that, Anchises Moraes from RSA opened the talks by presenting about the stone age and the computing era, comparing the information gathered from paintings on cave walls that could lead us to an understanding of what happened at that time, to the information that we are storing on internet that will stay visible to the next generation.
