Bytes & Bites 2019 app: The app is back! Use the app at the event to enter to win door prizes by participating in activities such as visiting vendor booths, meeting our cybersecurity team, and attending presentations. Each stop you make will have a code you'll use in the "gamification" portion of the app. The more points you rack up, the more entries you will receive in the drawing for one of 11 door prizes. You'll also be able to join in group chats, access social media, and provide feedback about the event. Get the app here.
