Those of you who know me well probably know that I’m a massive fan of doing educational/outreachy stuff. This past weekend, I spent Saturday participating in HSCTF with the fine folks at Sydney University’s IT Society:
This was heaps of fun (with the only drawback being that I got lazy on Sunday, slept in until
12 1 2 and didn’t log into defcon. ~teamwork!~), and it’s always fantastic seeing the enthusiasm for just doing cool computers shit from students, whose youthful spirits have not been broken in the Hellforge of Enterprise [tm].
This was a fantastic opportunity to meet both Sydney University staff (hey Frank!) as well as the representatives of SUITS (hey Erica/Gordon/Nick – thanks for helping make this awesome!), and kicked off some fantastic discussions around where we might see events in the following year.
To cut a long story short, heaps of awesome shit is coming if things go well, and I’m super keen on working with SUITS to make more events like this. ~stay tuned~.
In the meantime, a lot of people have asked for a bit of a practical session on reverse engineering, so here’s a bit of a teaser:
See you all in TJCTF next weeked, and ALICTF the week after!
