We love polyglots, people who care about craftsmanship, and best practices. Come join us and let's learn to use tools that are fit for their purpose; let's scrutinize the worthiness of new technologies; let's practice what we preach, and let's hangout together.

Are you interested in user centered privacy and security best practices? The goal of this workshop is to introduce and receive feedback from developers, designers, and other technologists on The Digital Standard.
The Digital Standard is an open source guideline that Consumer Reports uses to test and rate the privacy and security of consumer software, digital platforms and services, and Internet-connected products. Consumer Reports is seeking contributions to the Digital Standard from members of the Tech Community in order to shape, refine, test and improve the standard in order to ensure it is comprehensive, effective, and up-to-date in a rapidly-changing marketplace.
