Hacker Challenge at Mesa, AZ’s HeatSync Labs
TONIGHT, Wednesday, December 12, HeatSync will be hosting the Hacker Challenge Night beginning at 7pm.
Interested in computer security? Come learn offensive skills in a hands-on manner as we host our first annual Hacker Challenge Night! We’ll be tackling several scenario-based hacking challenges, where participants will be exposed to common, real-world vulnerabilities.
The challenges will range from easy to moderate difficulty, so all experience levels are encouraged to attend. Come meet and learn alongside other security-minded people, and give your input on how future Hacker Challenge Nights will be run in the future!
You’ll need to bring your own computer. We will have copies of BackTrack available in DVD and USB form, depending on if you want to run as a live CD or virtual machine, but you are advised to download it- and any other hacker tools, wordlists, etc. that you might need- beforehand. Energy drinks or coffee is also recommended.
Pallet Hacking DIY Gardening Workshop at LA’s CRASH Space
We will hack pallets under the sunny sun sunshine, breaking apart and reconstructing wooden pallets into window sill herb and flower gardens, indoor planters, standing outdoor gardens, tool boxes, bottle racks, shelves, and much more! Pallets are my new favorite medium to hack, so many uses and people/companies throw them away all the time. I will show you how to re-use the old rusty nails, so BYO Tetanus Shot
This class is BYOP = Bring your own pallet but if you dont have time to source one, I can do it for you, just sign up for that option, and if you want to own your own tools and not have to wait to share the commie tools, select the option to keep your tools. If you come with just a pallet of your own, I will provide a couple hammers, a box of nails, plastic bags, and staple gun for tear down and building- but if you wanna get pro with it— bring your own crow bar (flat form works better).
The workshop is Saturday, December 15th. The price of the workshop is $0 if you bring your own pallet and supplies. However, if you need a pallet and tools, it costs more. [photo by G30Sh1]
