I didn't make it to DEF CON this last year...

I'd like to know what you thought was the most interesting/informative presentation and possibly a link to more information on the topic.

It really depends on where your interests lie. There were several good talks about several topics. There was a good talk by Dave King about using Arduino as a hacking tool. The UAV talk was particularly entertaining and was also physical computing based. The ATM talk was a great insight into the vulnerabilities of embedded OS's, namely XP embedded, which runs on ATMs, POS devices and several other hardware solutions to sensitive data transfer.

There was a great talk on social engineering as well.

There was definitely something for everyone, make sure you make it this year and we'll hook up for some partying.

    I think your first sentence was supposed to be a comment on @Joey's answer.

Barnaby Jack from IOActive was the guy for ATM hacks.


Lots of interesting news articles on this and lots of video if you google for this.
