What we’re about

DC402 Tends to meet at DJ's Dugout in Miracle Hills monthly (typically the 2nd Tuesday). Check the or follow us at @defcon402 for the latest information.

Our meetings often have a meeting-specific broad topic, where somebody organizes discussion or presents. Often this topic is security-related, but also may drift into other interesting areas of tech. Our meetings are informal, social and often tend to gravitate toward the technical side of things. That said, we are not afraid of topics like tech policy and we strive to be inclusive rather than exclusive. Many of our members have interesting histories in U.S. government, capture the flag competitions, digital forensics, law enforcement, and various involvement with a small gathering of people in Las Vegas every year known as DEF CON.

For people interested in computer/hardware hacking, security, & electronics/IoT development. We practice the art of hacking to mod, improve, and make new better things!
