We never wrote up a blog post for DC27, but this excerpt from the closing ceremonies covers most of what we would've written.
Hello, dear friends. The past few days have been extremely hard on the OpenSOC Team. We hope this isn't the first time you're hearing of this, but a beloved friend of our team, devnull (aka Nolan Berry), passed away this past Friday, November 9, 2018. I'd try to find the words to express our sadness, but it would be an exercise in futility.
