!!Con (pronounced bang bang con) 2014 was two days of ten-minute talks (with lots of breaks, of course!) about what excites us about programming — the amazing, the strange, and the heartwarming. From kernel exploits to teaching kids to program, !!Con was about bringing the NYC programming community together to celebrate the joy and excitement and the surprising moments in what we do. We defined "programming community" broadly — you didn't need to be a professional programmer to be part of !!Con.
