Description

Don your black hoodies for a night you won't want to miss, as DEF CON Philly officially meets for the first time ever! DC215 will feature hands-on hacking, a game of capture-the-flag, and "Do as I Say, Not as I Do: Hacker Self Improvement and You," a presentation on growing as a hacker in the modern world. Get to know some of Philly's brightest and craftiest minds as you submerge yourself in a culture focused on collaboration and learning.


Guest speaker: Russ Handorf / @dntlookbehindu

Do as I Say, Not as I Do: Hacker Self Improvement and You

When I was your age" advice doesn't apply readily to modern skill growth. Gone are the days of dumpster diving for lab parts to work on skill growth that would jettison your career. And even those who are lucky enough to find mentors in their industry frequently leave that advise at work and never bring it home to hone. This talk will discuss things you can do to become more disciplined on a budget, and start a community resource for others to contribute their own skills.


Agenda:

18:00-18:15 - show up and hangout
18:20-19:00 - talk by Russ Handorf / @dntlookbehindu
19:10-20:00 - hands-on hacking, ctf, hangout, plan for DC26
20:15 - after party at local bar
