Fusion 360 user group

Needs a location

This is not a class! This is a gathering for individuals who wish to learn fusion 360 so that we may go through a tutorial series and lean on each other. This gathering assumes that all who attend have never touched fusion 360 and the tutorial starts from the very beginning.

Prerequisites - have the latest version of fusion 360 downloaded on your computer prior to arrival.

If you need to borrow a computer please message me. There is a possibility of a loaner with enough notice.

DEFCON 2022

Needs a location

DEF CON is one of the world's largest and most notable hacker conventions, held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first DEF CON took place in June 1993 and today many attendees at DEF CON include computer security professionals, journalists, lawyers, federal government employees, security researchers, students, and hackers with a general interest in software, computer architecture, hardware modification, conference badges, and anything else that can be "hacked". The event consists of several tracks of speakers about computer- and hacking-related subjects, as well as cyber-security challenges and competitions (known as hacking wargames). Contests held during the event are extremely varied, and can range from creating the longest Wi-Fi connection (aircrack-ng) to finding the most effective way to cool a beer in the Nevada heat.

Other contests, past and present, include lockpicking, robotics-related contests, art, slogan, coffee wars, scavenger hunt and Capture the Flag. Capture the Flag (CTF) is perhaps the best known of these contests and is a hacking competition where teams of hackers attempt to attack and defend computers and networks using software and network structures. CTF has been emulated at other hacking conferences as well as in academic and military contexts (as red team exercises).
