What is a digital space and how can users protect themselves and their communities within these spaces? In a tech ecosystem rife with surveillance, trolling, and data mining that increasingly threaten the safety of tech users, it is paramount that developers emphasize security and empathy within their work as well as their personal lives.

Join Dev Bootcamp for a discussion led by Noah Kelley on how to combat common security threats within code and culture while exploring a myriad of accessible tools to actively defend digital autonomy.
