What we're about
First and foremost, we're not associated with the @BoiseHackers Twitter account. Our mission is to attract experts, novice and beginners alike and be the bridge to build relationships in the local hacking community. We hope to learn something from every person. In turn, we hope that we can teach something to every person. Please note: If you're not open-minded to constructive criticism and/or you have an ego that you just can't check at the door? We're not interested in your membership.
This group is ultimately for people who challenge the conventionality of "the way things work". This outlook embodies the very spirit of the hacker mindset. We're trying to build a community that's very unique to Boise and develop a culture where we can take that very mindset and push things to their limits and beyond while learning. Because we're working diligently to accomplish the goal of building a hacking community, we mandate that active participation is a must. You don't have to attend EVERY SINGLE MEETUP we host, but if you don't show up every so often then what is the point of joining? If you're looking for an anti-social technology Meetup to join, I'm confident that you will have no issues finding one here in Boise. Join up with them. If that's a bit abrasive, we're sorry... but far too many people join groups on Meetup with no intention of ever meeting up and we don't have time for that.
Inspired by the 2600 hacker meetings, the purpose of this group is to network with people and discuss various topics, recent breaches and emerging methodologies to breach and/or safeguard against breaches using different tools and techniques.
This will be one of the most active technology Meetups in Boise, Idaho. Having said that, failure to actively participate in the Meetups will result in removal from the group. We will never collect membership fees nor will we ask for personal information. If you feel more comfortable using your handle/alias when attending meetings, feel free to do so. Meetings will take place at various locations in and around Boise. Meetings may also sometimes be broadcast via our Zoom account. We'll host demos. We'll ask keynote speakers to come in and share their experiences. Sometimes we'll just sit around and talk about life or go on hikes... these types of meets obviously will not have a Zoom meeting created for them. Meetings will typically be a mixture of informal topics, discussions and demos. If the informality of our meetings is not what you're looking for and you're interested in a more formal approach? Please feel free to register for our Boise CyberSec group at https://www.meetup.com/boisecybersec to take part in formal discussions and demos we'll be hosting.
