1111 - Hands-on With Metasploit! / Open Mic & Workshop Night


*Update* Also, we plan on having our first ever sticker trade! We know that many of you have some vintage or cool stickers that you’ve received at conferences or from other means (we know we do). Participation is not mandatory at all, but if you do want to participate please bring at least one sticker to trade with someone else. Logistics and trading details will be given at the meetup. We can’t wait to see what you bring!

Hey Shad0ws! This month we are going to have another workshop and open mic night.

This time, we have one of our fellow Shad0ws Tim Stover, AKA S1gk1ll17, who is going to be hosting a hands-on workshop on none other than Metasploit! You are all in for a real treat, and what better time to get hands-on with Metasploit than right after our awesome CTF 101 event last month! Come hang out and learn how to utilize Metasploit to exploit or “hack” a system, gaining full SYSTEM level access!

Outside of that, open workshop and mic nights are dedicated to collaboration! So what is an open workshop/mic night? I am glad that you asked! Are you working on a pet project, but running into problems? Don`t fret! Bring your project to the meetup and let’s see your fellow Shad0ws can assist! Are you looking to start a project and would like to work with members of the group? Awesome, bring your ideas to the meetup and discuss it with fellow Shad0ws! Do you have an interesting discussion or topic you want to inform or teach the group about?

We want to know, and the mic is open for you to step on stage and talk about it, it can literally be a 5-minute talk or however long you want!

We are hoping that this kind of meetup will really get the innovation juices flowing as we help each other through technical problems and come together to plan something huge!

If anyone has any recommendations on projects we can do as a whole or, even thoughts about how we can make the group better, bring them to the meetup and let`s talk. Like we always say, this group is for all of us and we are all representations of the group. The more we all pitch in with ideas and suggestions to make this group better, the more we will flourish and grow!
