LeakyCon Opening 2014 Ceremonies
The openings are only getting geekier and more wizardly. Put this in your schedule. We haven't listed the full roster of guests appearing in this opening because, as any LeakyCon veteran will tell you, anything can happen and you never know who is going to show up (and if you do, be a good human and don't tell. We like to surprise people at LeakyCon).
