On October 16, 2019, I attended two jury discussions at CIS 2019 on a beautiful in Downtown LA. Compared to CIS 2018, there were far fewer attendees which may have been due to the current cryptocurrency bear market. Despite this, there were heavy hitters on the panels who shared valuable insight. The exhibitors did a bang-up caper of promoting their products or services and the Global Hackathon was a bunch of playfulness .
