Hacking 101: Intro to WiFi with Women Who Code and Flatiron School

We all use it, but how does WiFi actually work? In cybersecurity and other tech related fields, it’s imperative that you can answer this question. This 101 will give you a deeper understanding of this everyday tool. We’ll not only take a closer look at the logistics behind WiFi, but also best practices for securing your WiFi connection. Most importantly we’ll introduce you to spectrum analyzers and help you answer the timeless question: Why does my WiFi suck sometimes?
