*** Open to folks at ALL Skill levels***


At DEFCON, and other conferences, having a special blingy/blinky badge that only you and only a few other people have will auto-magicly increase your street cred. 

This meetup is to plan coordinate and eventually fabricate the creation of a SYNSHOP specific hardware conference badge. Come with your hardware know-how, art knowledge, or a willingness to learn so we can share good ideas, and be ready to help make something cool.

This meetup will repeat on the first Thursday of every month.

**Attention crypto enthusiasts! The Cryptoparty time and date have change. The new class will be on Saturday, May 14th at 1 pm.***

L4bF0x will be hosting a workshop:

"How to regain your privacy online: steps to limiting your online presence"

During this workshop, we will go over techniques to adjust how much of your data is publicly available through means such as social media, search engines and all matters related to OSINT. The whole purpose of the workshop is to understand why and how your online data can be leaked, as well as steps to minimize your online footprint as much as possible.

I look forward to meeting you there!

What is a Crypto Party?

A Crypto Party is a gathering to learn and discuss computer Cryptographic tools, privacy, first amendment rights, and responsible legal methods of using these tools. This is an "Explain it like I'm 5 years old" (ELI5) level course.
