Code for DC CryptoParty Agenda | June 11, 2019

WiFi Security with Austin

Bring your phone, tablet, computer, or pen/paper to follow along!

Code for DC CryptoParty Ethos Privacy is a fundamental human right. It is recognized in many countries to be as central to individual human dignity and social values as Freedom of Association and Freedom of Speech. Privacy is where we draw the line on how far a society can intrude into our personal lives. It is user-defined and varies between individuals. You are the steward of your identity. You are the only person who has the right to disclose your personal story.

Remember to join #cryptoparty on Code for DC's Slack. If you plan on eating pizza 🍕, remember to RSVP on meetup.
