Welcome to Bugcrowd's 2015 Guide to Hacker Summer Camp, an overview of what we think folks should check out this week in Vegas. Our team is going to be quite busy this week, presenting six times across all three shows, as well as hosting several events throughout the week.

[Today I'd like to introduce you to Bugcrowd member Satish Bommisetty. An author and professional security researcher, Satish has helped improve the application security of dozens of companies by reporting over 170 valid vulnerabilities through Bugcrowd. We are honored to share his thoughts on how bounty hunters can deliver high quality professional results and create a respectful security research community. These are things that help form a researcher's positive reputation among peers as well as with customers.
