Who ran BsidesTLV 2016?

Happy you asked! The proud team of BsidesTLV 2016 was:

Why does it cost X NIS to attend? Is it free for students?

BSides events are traditionally FREE to all attendees, but sometimes there’s a small fee needed to help cover costs – 2016 was free thanks to our sponosrs and TAU.
